Last Post State-Side
So, my mind is racing, running away, thinking of everything at once, unable to focus on any one thing. Who knows what this post will read like when I re-read it in 2 weeks. I was all packed on Tuesday, but today, I worried over bills that needed to be paid, having things in order for Stan, talking with Whitney about Ellie, where are the passports, in the safe, oh, Stan has the key, he's at work, Whitney needs to upload her photos so I can take her memory card b/c her card will hold twice as many pictures as mine, okay, okay, I'll stop.
But, I did make myself STOP and go swimming with my kids...all five of them. I love, love, love my parents' pool. I was in 9th grade when they put it in. You can just guess how long ago that was! I can relax at that pool like I can no where else, just swim, swim, swim.
Do you think I could have captured a better image of Ellie being thrown in the air by Caleb?
We were joined in the pool by two friends from church, Kelsea and Jacque. They've promised to pray faithfully while we're gone. Their dad will too!
And, Brandon did some serious cleaning for me today. REALLY!
And, Aunt Bobbie came by tonight. I needed a fanny pack, couldn't find mine, and ever-faithful Aunt Bobbie brought 3, so I could choose the one I wanted. She and Uncle Shannon gave some sweet sugar before they went back home.
So, I know you'll be praying. I trust you will all be praying. And, like Paul, I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. I can't wait to see what God is going to do!!!
