It's finally here! I was hoping to have posted at least a few times since my last post, but unfortunately I have been so busy with last-minute details and packing, that I just haven't had the time to sit and write a post.
But it's time! It is finally time. By this time next week I will be sitting next to my love and soaking in the warmth of having my family all in one place again, after almost a whole year apart. I will be reveling in the joy of watching my children get to know and come close to their father. I am so ready... 6 bags of luggage, 2 carry-ons, a diaper bag, and a stroller later, and we are ready to go. Our paper chain that I made for GC to be able to visualize how much time is left it almost gone. Each day that passes brings us closer to tearing that last glorious piece of paper!
I feel prepared enough to expect the unexpected, and I am going into this with no expectations and completely open to whatever and wherever the spirit leads us. We have no plans for the future or for settling down quite yet... Well, except for the prospect of raising sheep. :) That would be a trip, for sure! I would LOVE to do that!
Right now, my mind is full of speculations and wonder at this adventure knocking at my door. I am convinced it will be glorious, even when it does not appear to be so, because I am fully persuaded that this is right where God wants us to be.
Please pray that we get through customs without any hiccups. I know Aduana can pretty much do whatever if they see something they want. Not that I have really cool or expensive stuff, but I do have a lot. Pray also that we are able to enjoy our homecoming with Papa, be welcomed into our new home, without any physical illnesses. We have been downing acidophilus like crazy because last time I had a horrible weak stomach for the first 10 days I was there... Not fun. And after so long, I would really love to be healthy and able to enjoy and relax for the first time in a year.
God is so good! Thank you all so so much for all the support you have been to me, physically, financially, and most importantly, spiritually. It is such a blessing to be surrounded by people of encouragement to lift you up, both with words and with prayer. And even more powerful when you see God answering and manifesting himself in those ways.
Be on the lookout for an update in about a week or so FROM MEXICO! God is good. See ya on the flip side! ;)
