Look what I discovered in my suitcase last night! Isn't that just the cutest? He has always done this. And he lays on the laundry when we get back. He's been moping around...
Well... once I shoo'ed the stray dachshunds out of my bags, they are all zipped up and ready to go! There has been a bit of stress involved in these past few days- some that I'll blog about in the future I'm sure- but God once again proving Himself to be sufficient and so, so faithful to His children.
I was thinking of the hymn yesterday "Praise to the Lord, The Almighty" ("Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of Creation.... Oh my soul bless Him for He is thy health and salvation...") Anyway, I was singing it to myself and came upon the part that said, "Hath thou not seen, how thy desires 'ere hath been, granted in what He ordaineth." What He is ordaining in my life- the difficult as well as the easy- is accomplishing the very things I have been praying for lately: closeness to Him, taking shelter in the shadow of His wings, a bolder witness, thankfulness, abiding in Him. How I praise Him indeed for what He is granting!
I'm going to give my sweet husband "Blogging 101" lessons in a few minutes, so maybe if I can send some pictures he can post them. Please know that you are going with us in our hearts and those of you who are praying are very much a part of this team. In a very, very real way you will be impacting what is going on across the world. (Or just "next door" :::waving to Alycia:::)
We are flying to LA and then Hong Kong, then to our city. Just 26 or so hours of travel. I'll be lookin' SO good by the time we get there, LOL. I'll be 13 hours ahead of you (if you're in the states) so we can pray for each other while the other one's asleep! Fun!
Check back! I love y'all!!
