Have you met Sarah Dawn of Splashin' Glory? If you've not ...you need to read her blog. Sarah Dawn has an incredible way with words. It's like poetry for the soul and spirit. Her words often touch my heart.
I began following her blog when she "happened" to be state side for a period of time visiting family in Arizona. She wrote a comment on Heart Choices and I started reading about her family's life in Costa Rica as YWAM missionaries. Here's how Sarah Dawn describes herself on her profile:
" Just me, dancing in His rain on the mission field. Wife to my knight Ryan, mommy to little princes Joshua and Caleb, and adopting our princess from Ethiopia. Jeans and t-shirt prayer warrior, desiring to bring God's kingdom to earth and learning to hear the heartbeat of heaven. Come and splash around with me!"
I had the opportunity to meet Sarah Dawn ...in person today! Woo hoo!
What a pleasant afternoon it was! Sarah Dawn and I had the opportunity to share bits of our lives with one another. She has such a peaceful serene beautiful face and it's easy to feel comfortable in her presence. I'm probably old enough to be her grandmother. Well, maybe just her mother but that made no difference. We are sisters in the Lord and our bond is ...our love for Jesus.
We had the opportunity to pray together which was such a blessing. I can't wait to see what God has in store for this family as they are trusting His guidance. I learned much about living by faith as I listened to Sarah Dawn share with me.
As many of you know, I tend to struggle with control issues but I'm slowly learning to lay it ALL down. But it's a moment by moment battle at times. I love being around people who live a life of faith.
I encourage you to visit Splashin' Glory and tell Sarah Dawn that I sent you over. You'll love her too. And when we parted today, we agreed that we'd be getting together again. I look forward to that.
