I Heart NY

Did you, did I, ever think I could say I love NY? 
I'm so thankful for this past summer, and this past year.
For renewal and redemption. New heart, new eyes, New York.
For being moved toward greater degrees of freedom than I thought possible--than I knew I needed.

God keeps doing what only He can! Yay!
I've never been so glad, relieved to return to this city.
The moment my long-delayed plane landed I was ready to go go go!
I've missed the pace--and the people--of this city.
I've missed my bicycle--(thanks YungBros!)
Yay for the 6 mile midnight ride to get pedaling again.
Yay for surprise snail mail! Keynotes Nate's IV staff support letter! Yay!
And Hannah's two pages written in IPA! Only us!
I'd forgotten about my green papasan chair.
My bookshelves and high ceilings.
I forgot I had a Tempurpedic bed.

Thank You for bringing me to a city I need! And for rescuing me always.
Scars and struggles on the way, but with joy our hearts can say
Never once did we ever walk alone. :)
You make me certain.
You love my fears away.
You send worms after the shady plants I settle for.
How can I but thank You?

Giddy and grateful at the moment. :)
Help me remember.
