Thursday’s This & That

Outside of my window… After several rainy, humid days, we finally have some sun and a slightly cool breeze. It is refreshing to be able to have the widows open and let some cool, dry air in!

Around the house… A Group 1 Crew station in playing on the internet radio.  I needed something with a beat to help me motivate to clean around the house and get prepared for a pot luck we’re hosting tomorrow.  The hum of the dishwasher is mingling with the purr of a fan. Giggling girls are chatting on the couch. 

On my to-do list… Along with mundane tasks, I have some new, neat things to tackle like getting more info on immunizations and filling in paperwork for my Visa. Wow, just four months before I hope on a big airplane and fly over the ocean!

Speaking of that… As I read back through the posts where I was first drawn to Kwagala Deborah two years ago, I now just smile to see how plainly God was working on me and aligning something beautiful.

There are so many details in our relationship that have God’s fingerprint plainly showing. 

Right now, my beloved Ugandan daughter is going through a bit of a crisis, so I would love it if you could pray for her.  I know that winning the Compassion Bloggers trip was a blessing from the Lord to get me to Uganda “for such a time as this”.

And I am preparing and praying over the big and little details surrounding the tip. High on my list is that the “re-entry” Shaun Groves writes about is going to be very, very difficult for me. Especially coming back to the US at the height of the pre-Christmas Spend Fest. I already know my heart and that I can be cynical and judgemental. It is going to be hard to come back from a developing country and watch as Americans celebrate Christmas in the way they are known to do.

Would you pray for me and the upcoming trip? For the details and the “re-entry”?

Your prayers, support and friendship are all so appreciated.
