Firenze is this magical, wonderful place. It romanced me each day — challenging me to step out of il mio apartimiento to wander aimlessly and trust God that getting lost would really help me find myself. This half a summer made me come to terms with my wandering heart and acknowledging that I fall in love with places more than people. It reminded me of God’s intense pursuit of my mind, body and spirit. He loves me, He chases me, He chooses me.
Switzerland was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. The people were so kind, the streets so clean. The food was to die for and the service was great. I held my breath as I stood on the top of a mountain in Interlaken and looked at the lakes, rivers, mountains, villages below me. God created this earth for us, He made the stars and mountains and valleys and trees to show His glory.
