Hope Town: a special place I called home for two years, and a place that still has a piece of my heart. Last week I traveled back to that beautiful Bahamian island to visit friends and introduce Noah to people who have become family to us. I’ll be blogging later about the whole trip, but I wanted to make sure that I got in a self-portrait this month of me in one of my favorite places.
The porch behind the Mission House is one of my resting places. You can feel the wind, hear the ocean, and really just be still there. I used to sit out there many evenings, reading or just listening. I don’t do either of those as much now, and this trip really reminded me of that. I have a chair outside that is becoming one of my still places in Durham, but man oh man is it good to hear the ocean while you’re being still!
Here’s to the ocean, to Hope Town, to stillness.
“The LORD will fight for you, you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:14
