This past weekend Vanessa and I made the hard decision to let go of our apartment in China. It had sustained some damage in the earthquake last year and as a result was becoming difficult to sublet, and the landlord is wanting to raise the rent. We both feel a lot more peace about this than I would have expected. We feel that when Father opens the door for us to return He'll have the perfect place for us.
Today would have been Casey's 22nd birthday. I miss ya bud, and it's still hard to believe you're gone. As I've wrestled with this over and over again, "By Your Side" by Tenth Avenue North has really impacted me, reminding me the truth I so quickly forget.
