I know the days will speed by for me, but at the same time, they will drag. Isn’t that the strangest feeling in the world? I’m sure that you are feeling it too. There is so much going on, SO much to do, that you just feel like your world is spinning out of control. And then there is that thing off in the distance that you are so looking forward to, that the days seem to crawl along, leaving it as an ever-unattainable goal.It is so true! The days seem to be crawling along at an incredibly slow rate and yet they are also whizzing right by! It's hard to explain. I am thrilled with the opportunity to go to Thailand, but I don't want to get so caught up in "going" that I miss out on "living" the days between now and then. God intends for me to live in the present... remembering the past and the blessings of yesterday...looking forward to future blessings and events... but taking it one day at a time.
This evening Bro. Jack Lancaster preached from 2 Corinthians 3:17 ~ "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." One comment he made was this: "If I'm where He is, He will take care of me." He will take care of me! Whether in Pennsylvania or Thailand, as long as I'm walking in His will, I am guaranteed guidance by His Hand. Oh the thought!
The countdown is now at fifteen days... just in case you were going to ask "when do you leave?":o). I don't mind that question; just don't ask me if I'm ready to go. After all - I don't leave for another fifteen days... plenty of time left to pile, sort, and pack;o).
