(There is more where this came from)
I’m sitting here at 11:59 and I know I should really just go to bed. BUT what’s going on these days is kind of BIG news, probably once in a lifetime kind of big. So, sleep must wait.
Now if I can only think half straight to get it out.
If you think I’m going to tell you that I’m feeling all sorts of stuff, your wrong. I’m not. Because I’m not feeling anything.
I just packed EIGHT, (YEP EIGHT) large suit cases, 3 carry ons and 3 personal bags, made several trips to the thrift store, cleaned a house, spoke with countless customer service reps (who don’t alway know what they’re doing) AND…… I can’t even begin to really tell you what one has to do in preparation to MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY.
That’s right, no time to feel. That’ll come later and when it does you’ll hear about it. 🙂
So until I start feeling (excited, nervous, scared ect.) I will be content with being where I’m at. I am tired. I am thankful. I am very aware.
I am so tired of packing that sitting here looking at these suitcases makes me want to ralph. (Which Alayna did all last night. So why am I doing this to myself after not sleeping last night? Right, because I need to process, then I can sleep).
I am thankful. Thankful for so many things, I honestly don’t even know where to start. You see, in the midst of these last couple of crazy weeks, God has revealed himself in ways that leave me at the foot of the cross, completely overwhelmed.
I am so aware that what we have recently been through is preparation of what is to come. I know it’s going to be good and I know it’s going to be hard! I know it deep, deep down in my soul.
Did someone just say we are leaving for Bolivia in less than 48 hours?! I wonder ‘what or if’ we will feel when we finally step foot on Bolivian soil.
I’ll do my best to capture the next phase of our journey so that you can continue to REALLY walk with us.
Please pray Alayna sleeps in tomorrow;)
Until next time,
P.S Urban Pioneer youth: you blew our socks off! CDCC family: speechless!
