T-minus 6 hours…and counting…
There was a very bad James Bond film in which the “something bad” was going to happen very quickly toward the end of the movie. There was a voice coming over the loudspeaker that said, “T-minus (fill in the blank), and counting.” Only it came out “and gown-tinggg.” Our family has used that ever since when counting down to some event.
So here we are. Just a few hours until wheels up on the way to the Dominican Republic. Not sure how to feel about this, except to know that God is pretty cool, and I know He’s going to be here. Other than that, I have no expectations. I’m just going to let happen what will happen.
I can tell you this, Beth and I are both looking forward to a point in time where we have nothing to do for a while. No obligations, no busy weekends, no frantic things to get caught up on. Just a few weeks of catching our breaths after the past few months. This trip to the D.R. is the last of the planned itinerary for a while. It’s been frantic, it’s been good, it’s been tiring. God willing, after next week we can just kick back for a while. We’ll see how reality matches up with our “plans.”
Being out of country, I’m not sure how often I’m going to be able to post. I hope to post at least a couple of times, maybe more, time will tell.
And I wanted to leave you with this. This song speaks to me. I hope it does to you as well.

Pray for us, pray for our trip. Pray for safety, pray for God’s revealing presence. May God bless each of us.
