a map of transparency; a translucent heart; an exuberant soul

Learning the hard way
Before I left to come to Sweden, Rachel sent me a letter in the mail. When I opened it, it contained 50 Swedish Kronor (about $6.50) and a page-long letter. Something she said in that letter really stuck out to me, even though I didn't understand it then. She said this, "I'm going to give you some advice that Sam gave me before I went. This will be one of the best years of your life, but it will also be one of the most difficult." I couldn't imagine how going to Europe for a few months and learning more about God could be difficult, but now I think I'm beginning to grasp that.
