I know it has been a while, and I know you are tired of me talking about Haiti. Hopefully this will be the last Haiti post for a while. But I can't stop thinking about my trip to Haiti, which is why I haven't posted anything different on here in a while. It has been about 2 1/2 months since I went to Haiti, but my heart is still there. I love the people and the beauty of the country. Beauty you say? Yes, absolute beauty. It is hard to even imagine or describe without seeing it, but the mountains there are beautiful. Hence Haiti's name, meaning Land of Mountains. I know it is hard to believe I fell in love with such a place that is so poverty stricken, but maybe that's what makes it so great! They don't worry about what they will wear (except to church on Sundays) or getting home to watch tonight's best TV show. It's a land of community and helping one another, and I believe this is what we are all longing and searching for. We are just too caught up in the hustle and bustle to know exactly what it is we are looking for. We try to fill it with so many other things that just continue to leave us empty.
Anyway, I just wanted to share what was on my heart. Now let me ask you, where is your heart and your passion? Mine comes from God, and he has given me a heart for Haiti. Have you done the things you are passionate about? Have you let yourself be still enough to figure out what your passion is? Have you put your priorities in order?
