Packing and "putzing"

Sunday, November 11, 2012

"Putzen" actually means cleaning in German, but I'm doing the English version when I should be doing more of the German version.

Just wanted to check in and ask my Spark friends to pray for me tomorrow when I fly back to the States. It's hard taking the trip this time, knowing that Dad won't be there when I arrive, just the condo and the stuff.

It will all be OK, though. I know the Lord is with me and that he'll help me step by step through the process ahead. I've got some good friends there who have been such a support and I know that I can count on their continued help and company. I expect new, different experiences that will only help me grow stronger, although they might be hard to navigate. I already have a couple of possible part-time jobs, and with the holidays coming, there will be music and ministry opportunities galore.

And I look forward to Florida weather, beach walking, and whatever other adventures are in store. It's starting to get cold and nasty here, typical for this time of year here, although we have mostly had nice weather during the month I've been back. Thankful for the fall visuals, with the sun shining almost horizontally through the brilliant-colored leaves. But ready for some warmer temps.

OK, back to packing. I leave in 14 hours and there is TONS to do...

    Zella, I've been keeping you in my prayers. I think you are probably on your way, or have landed by now. (((Zella)))

    Praying Michelle as you make this journey. I will be praying as I know what a difficult job you have in front of you. It is also pretty exciting time and I hope you approach it open to learning more about your Father. I felt like I got to know a part of my Dad that I had never known.

Take care and know you are covered in prayer.

Keep in touch.
