The whirlwind of a fast-paced week is over... the family has gone home; the graduation is celebrated (I had no idea we could fit 85 people in and around our house!). Sunday was good... the last song of the night was "Calvary's Blood". I thought that was the right song to end with since Christ's blood alone has saved me and He's the One who has been guiding my every footstep. Today was a busy day as well... filled with "good-byes", especially to one very dear family who make their move to Florida at the end of this month. The nice thing is I'll get to visit them when I make my yearly trek down to Orlando later this year:o). Ah, yes. Silver linings in what could be a very dark cloud... but they are following God's leading, which is so important!
I still have all my packing to do... my brain really hasn't engaged in the fact that I'm moving away for 2 1/2 months! I suppose I should take a skirt or two along:o). I'm going to go pack and try to sleep a little before pulling out at 6 AM in the morning... the next post should be from Bangkok!!! So until then, here's a glimpse of some mighty special people in my life! Too-da-loo!
Andrew trying to enter the ladies room. At least he's polite; he knocks every time;o).
From left to right: Tom, me, Neil, Jack, Mary, Phil, and Grammie ~ 6 of her 11 grandchildren. My grandmother is not doing well at all, and I'm praying that she will make it through the summer until I come back.
Grammie with Tiana, Ethan, Trevor, Tyler and Andrew... 5 of her 8 great-grandchildren!
Three blondes: my cousin Neil, my brother Tom, and my nephew Andrew:o).
