Hello All! I just moved my blog over to Blogspot today!

The blog is still under construction. Please continue to follow me!


New Pictures!

Hey Ya’ll!

I just went to Malaysia with Brian and Mary Beth last week to get a new visa so that I can stay in Thailand longer. We had a great time together! I kept forgetting to take pictures while I was there, but, I did take some of the beautiful view I had from my hotel room. Check them out ! ~ From the Land of Smiles

Blog updated

From The Land of Smiles has had a facelift 🙂 .  Check it out and let me know what you think!

I am sorely tempted to switch this blog over to Blogspot, but, I can’t make up my mind if I’m going to or not.

His Love

How can one express the sweetness of Christ’s love? Are there words? Because when I try to describe His ever steady and unfailing love…I am speechless.  And when I think of how he has made me his daughter and the bride of his Son, I am so overwhelmed that all I can do is smile and cry. What have I done to deserve this love?  Have I not sinned against him and broken his laws? Have I not broken his heart with my rebellion? So why has he placed me in such a place of honor and trust? His love is just sometimes…unexplainable.

Vacation :)

DSC03241Sorry for the lack of posts lately! And I apologize to those of you that I promised to email updates to. For some reason I have been able to receive emails, but, not able to send any :/

Last week the Stubenrauchs took the opportunity to go on a rare vacation while Mary Beth’s mother is here. We had  so much fun! We were by the ocean, which was a first for me, and it was beautiful! God’s artistic hand in everything continually amazes me. We didn’t do a lot except eat, swim, and sleep 🙂 Haha! Actually, it was a very refreshing time for me. There were times that I could feel the Lord’s presence. To look at pictures of our time on the island click HERE

Tomorrow I start taking Thai language lessons with a woman nearby!  I’m pretty excited. My prayer is that I will learn the language quickly so I can communicate more with the people around me. Especially the two little girls that live in the house that I share with Christina and P’Thak.
