We've been home here in Brazil for almost a week now. It's taking me a bit longer to recup this time from our whirlwind trip to CO. Everything seems to returning to normal again though.
Our trip was great, but of course, too fast! We ate things we were missing, and saw lots of friends we were missing. My parents were even able to join us for a few days, which was wonderful. They got a few days in of spoiling their 9th grandchild. :)
Our immigration meeting went well, we think. I guess we'll know for sure in a few weeks if Renato receives his new Green Card in the mail or not. Thanks for your prayers!
It was a little hard coming back to Brazil for me. Going back to the U.S., I was just reminded of how easy, comfortable, and convenient life is there. It's amazing how easy it is to fall back into all my previous "comforts" of living. Even though life is a bit harder here, I know I am in God's will and that He is "stretching" me and teaching me valuable lessons in my life here in Brazil. (Like the lesson of patience.) I look forward to what He has for me to learn tomorrow. (I'm guessing it has something to do with patience.......even when I'm ironing sheets!) Ha!
