**Written on Thursday, July 7**
As I sit on the bed, some 30 hours after my journey began, the fatigue of international travel begins to set in. After a shower and amazing meal, my eyelids are yelling at me to lay the pen down, and put your thoughts on hold until the morning hours and rest awhile.
It's great to be back in Prague. The light trickled away around 9pm leaving behind a cool breeze and the sound of passing cars, voices in the night, and some music in the distance.
I find myself staying with the same host family as this past Spring. Greeting Ludmilla, Sergei, and Ivan was warm and it seemed like only days had passed since my last visit. You begin to realize that relationships are vital, and our time together, as short as it is, leaves an indelible mark on our lives regardless of the language spoken.
I am still working my way through the book WEIRD and once again I find myself thinking and pondering this notion of burn-out and rest. What do I need to lay down in rder to help bring me to a more resting state?
This trip is not just for one way communication with God, but also a time when I can rest awhile and steal some quiet moments with him.
What is He saying? What does He want me to do? Only time will tell.
