Last blog before take-off

This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Ahhh, this is the day...We wake up in less than five hours. Almost everything is packed and ready to go, we only need to shower and load the van and we're off. Melissa and Fleurette are driving us to the airport. Thanks to Melissa for practically cleaning my entire house today AND watching Sheehan while I got my hair cut AND running errands with me AND helping me finalize my packing. What a sister! :-) I love you Melissa!

Our flight is at 9am. We should arrive in Hong Kong (via L.A.) at 6:40pm on Friday, which will be 5:40 am on Friday here. We'll try to post upon arrival, but not sure how tired we'll be.

We really do appreciate all your prayers, especially in reminding us that God is sovereign and He loves us as He lays His hand upon us. Every circumstance that we experience has first been filtered through His loving fingers (to paraphrase Nancy Leigh DeMoss). When anxious or difficult situations arise, we can trust that God is in control and He knows the outcome. I have no reason to worry. These last few sentences are a reminder of God's truth to myself that I've been repeating the past few days.

I guess I should get some sleep now. Blog ya from China!

Also, I wanted to apologize to a bunch of people who have emailed me over the past few days, especially some of you who offered to take care of our cat and I haven't responded to you. I'm sorry I haven't been able to get back to you. Preparing for such a big trip to adopt a child with only two (real) weeks notice is crazy. I hope to catch up on my emails at some point. :-) Print Friendly and PDF
