Counting Down!!

Sorry for my delay in posting to our blog. It has been so crazy busy and I haven't had the chance to sit down and blog my little heart out. :)

While I am taking a break from slaying the dragon...I my home from top to bottom...I thought I could chill and blog for a moment.

We are less than 48 hours away from taking off to China! My heart swells with joy just thinking about it. I just called John to check on him and he is on cloud 9 right now.

We met with John's parents yesterday to eat and for them to see us off. They were surprised at our "calmness" and sense of peace. I told them that they should've seen me in church earlier that morning...I was trying to keep myself from passing out!!! It was our last Sunday..our last the a family of 2!! Who wouldn't feel like passing out?? :)

In all seriousness, truly, God is our Peace. I am reminded of a passage of Scripture..

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trust in You. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock." Isaiah 26:3-4

Please pray that we will take every thought captive to obey Christ and that we will not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let our requests be made known to God.

I will leave you with a picture we took to put in Lydia's "Who loves Baby book".....

More posts to come....
