"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field."
For as long as I cam remember, this verse has been very convicting to me. I know for a fact that it would be incredibly difficult for me to give up everything I have for the Gospel. I want so badly for this to be true of my life, but it is much easier said than done. I guess all I can do is pray that the Lord give me the will to live like this. That's the beautiful thing about His grace.
Yesterday I went to Pisa with a small group led by one of the teachers at the university. It was so much more exciting than I thought! The architecture was fascinating. It was so different than Firenze. I also got to experience riding on the train! I had ridden on one before but it was so long ago. I can now say I thoroughly enjoy train-travel. It's so laid back. And the trip to Pisa was only a little over an hour.
Of course, when we reached the tower, everyone was doing some pose with it.
We had been thinking of poses all day.
My attempt to lean against the leaning tower.
mmmm dinner: pizza and some fried mashed potato thing with cheese that was absolutely delicious.
