It's gonna be a Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

It's going to be a pretty special Christmas for us this year, since we'll be leaving for China on the 25th of December!!!

Of course, I'm a little bit sad that we won't be meeting our sweet son next week, but I really do think that this timing will be best for many, many reasons (finishing up teaching, a special school consideration for Jadon, celebrating Christmas before we go and not overwhelming our new son with Christmas celebrating when we get home, etc.). I asked the Lord for His perfect timing and I believe that He has given it. Praise to Him!!!

David spent a couple of hours on the phone this morning, buying our tickets. Whew! That's always a bit overwhelming, since you want to make sure that you don't make any mistakes. We could have used our agency's travel agent, but it was MUCH less expensive to buy tickets ourselves. So, now that the tickets are purchased, it feels very official...

We're going to China in three weeks!!!!

What a merry, merry Christmas this one will be!

Wow...looking back...can you believe where you are going in just a few weeks? Seriously....God's plans always blow me away:) I keep telling Greg this about a job for him. That what "we" think will be the best situation for our family, we will look back a year from now (I hope!) and see that we are once again thankful God was in control. I love you my friend and I am covering you in prayer!!!
