I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane

There are people in this world who like surprises. I am not one of those people.
- Annie Reed (as portrayed by Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle")

Ditto, Annie.

And yet by the time you read this, I'll be on a plane to Peru. I can't think of anything more surprising, actually. Even though I've gotten all the confirmation I needed.

I'm excited, nervous, apprehensive, joyful, and just plain scared. My emotions have been all over the place. I'm sure it will be that way for the next 10 days.

I'll have limited internet time...and only then if I can swipe someone's laptop for a bit. So, I'll be emailing my dear friend Amber, and she'll post updates here. (It takes me forever to craft a blog post, and I know I can email her my ramblings & she'll turn them into something beautiful and thought-provoking.) Our church will also blog about our trip...and one of us will post those links.

So, friends, I'm outta here. Coveting your prayers and trying with all my might to remember what God showed me last week:

Preparing
Expecting
Relinquishing
Understanding

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."
- Isaiah 6:8 (ESV)
