Yes, packing day has arrived!
Where did all the time go?
Today is going to be filled with cleaning, laundry, errands, and way too much decision-making.
Thoughts running through our minds:
How are we going to fit everything into two small bags?
Praying God keeps His hand of protection and love on us every step for the next two weeks.
Trying not to think about how much we're going to miss each other.
What are we forgetting?
Won't all the hugs and new memories be so wonderful? How exciting!
Eleven days is a really long time...
There is so much to do today! What am I doing blogging? =)
Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes as Steve gets ready to send me off to Wisconsin on my own for the first time since we've been married. It's going to be an amazing adventure with a few challenges, but it will all be well worth it in the end.
Jewish "Traveler's Prayer"
May it be Your will, LORD, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead us toward peace, guide our footsteps toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe, ambush along the way, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who hears prayer.
