My lungs feel free...

It's been awhile, we know... but we must share, the access to internet is quite a rarity up here in the hill stations of Southern India, therefore our communication is limited... and another admission = it's been kinda nice...

After a two day, two night train ride south (yes, please! to Indian Railways...) we made our way slowly south into the hill stations of Southern India (pictures to be posted - someday...)

Dancing through the fresh air filled with jasmine and eucalyptus...
Eating fresh picked mangos, papaya, jack fruit, etc...
Exploring our way through the coffee and tea plantations...
Enjoying the most wonderful company and care of the Gnanamanickam family...
Touching green grass...
Climbing tall gnarly trees...
Thinking, praying and working through our time up North...
Anticipating our flight to Thailand on the 7th...

Tasting love, listening to love, watching love, smelling love, and touching love...
Simply enjoying the fruits of being loved and in love...

yum. love.

did i read that you were staying with Pavi's family?

i never really realized how many Mideltis were reading your blog until the last several days when people i didn't even know would come up to me and ask when you were going to post again. which is to say, we miss you and we're VERY interested in your lives.

Glad you could post again! regardless how often you can post, prayers go up daily. Keep your eyes open for those "divine appointments". God is using you.

oh, clean air. i found myself inhaling unconsciously even at the sight of your title. please, please, please - breathe deeply for me, for all those who feel stifled, for those who are not afforded the opportunity.....
