al. most. here.

I knew it.

I just knew it would flyyyyyy by. And it's almost here!

Only (pauses for a minute to count the hours) 54 hours until I get ready to head to Atlanta. I've been busy this weekend running errands, trying to figure out what to pack, washing clothes and stocking up on necessities (see photo below).

a little protein and some "just in case" that I pray I don't even have to open=)

Amidst all the chaos, I've also tried to take time just to be still... to be still and prepare my heart for what's to come. I've asked the Lord to show me His purpose for me on this trip, how He wants to use me and how to be open to what He has in store. I'm so excited to see what He reveals.

For now these words will sum things up, better than I can:

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

- lyrics from one of my very favorite songs, "All I Have Is Christ"

Sweet Colleen! I got to read your words that you wrote while I was in Haiti - humbling and so encouraging to say the VERY least. (in fact, I may or may not have read them more than once=) Thank you for your prayers and words! I can't wait to share more!
