What Was I Thinking?!

The masses are wondering: What was Cara thinking on her way back to America from Madagascar?!” Well wonder no longer. lol. Okay, maybe you should continue wondering in general, but wonder no longer about this…and pardon the flight of ideas. It doesn’t always mean mental illness, you know. ;)

“It really doesn’t seem like I’m moving back to America. I’ve been traveling so much this past year. Maybe what’s going on is that I’ll be there for a few weeks and then come back to Mada.”

“Ads for medications on the airport bathroom wall? It’s almost like you can make an informed decision about which ones you want or something…”

“I am so incredibly glad that God is my Guide and will always lead me in His timing. Man does that bring peace of mind.”

“There are some guys that like…other guys? I forgot about that. All the guys I met in Madagascar liked girls.”

After turning to whisper to Heather in our “secret” language – English – I realized: “A lot of people speak English even if they’re foreign. It can’t be the language we talk about other people in anymore.”

“I’m supposed to have big emotions right now, right? I don’t. I’m strange.”

“American airports keep people SO updated. How can they possibly need/want/care about so many updates?”

“Even if I am doing ‘mundane’ things in the day, I can adventure with my God throughout that time. Because He is THAT cool, oh yes, He is. Thank You for these last two years, LORD, Praise Your name, for mighty are Your acts, and glorious Your ways…I am so glad I never have to leave Your presence. Please let me be a blessing – a channel of Your love – as I return. Do I ever need WISDOM!”

“Spicy chicken sandwiches from Wendy’s are amazing. Truly amazing.”
