Returning to Quiet

The last four weeks have been non-stop!  During this time, I have been with almost eighty different people at  activities and clinics here in Chichi and also in Montellano. All of those people are now back on US soil.  A lot work has been done and so appreciated..............then comes the shift back to normal living.

I went to Panajachel last night just to chill.  Had dinner on the lake and watched the lights come on in the different communities.  One boat was coming across the lake in the dusk.

As usual, I jumped a bus to Pana with my backpack, listening to music.....I never plan on seeing people that I know so it surprises me when I do. I saw Katie that works for the clinic in Camanchaj.  She was finishing up with some teams so she was going to be enjoying a quiet weekend.

In Pana, I listened to Beulah Land a lot and the lyrics are very applicable.

I'm kind of homesick for a country
To which I've never been before.
No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
For time won't matter anymore.
Beulah Land (Beulah Land) I'm longing for you (I'm longing for you)
And some day (And some day) on thee I'll stand (Someday we will stand)
There my home (There my home) shall be eternal (Eternal)
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land
I'm looking now, just across the river
To where my faith, shall end in sight (Shall end in sight)
There's just a few more days to labor.
Then I will take my heavenly flight.
Tomorrow morning, I will visit ASELSI.  I referred a young boy there from Panajachel and hopefully, the mother will have an idea what happened to her son's eye. He is a very good opthalmologist and has helped several of our patients.
