I'll keep this short and sweet because I don't have time for anything else! So much to do today, as I'm down to the wire preparing to leave for the great state of Alaska early Wednesday morning. Today will be spent in part doing something I should have started already: packing! Of course, there's still some last minute things to pick up and arrange, but hey...that's the way it goes with me. I was waiting for school to end so I could switch gears. I figured once the students were out the door I could get myself together. School ended Thursday, and still I'm having a hard time with getting moving on the packing. The whole idea of going to Alaska is so HUGE in my mind, I suppose, that I've delayed taking even the initial step of putting even one item in the luggage! I mean, how does one pack for a whole month?! The answer is: You don't! Instead, you do laundry while you're there!
So today is about moving and shaking, baby! Let's get 'er done.
I am so grateful to God for this wonderful door He has opened. One day I'll have to share how it all unfolded--every step. It's an amazing story still being written. But for now, I ask for your prayers as I get through just today--because if I don't get moving, I won't be prepared to go anywhere Wednesday!
