On my last night in Sydney the Aussie hospitality took over and offered a beautiful fireworks display over the Opera House. What a great way to conclude the journey of a lifetime! Now it is time to come home. “Home!” Along with love and hope is one of the most important four letter words in the dictionary. In many ways “Home” has been the theme of this sabbatical. More about this in the upcoming weeks!

This is my last blog before Thanksgiving, so have a blessed time with family and friends. With all the ups and downs of the past year, please take time to give thanks and celebrate the people, relationships and communities we are privileged to have in our lives. Above all, give thanks foe the blessings of home!
