Firsts and Lasts

The Whirlwind of Getting Out of the Country

Well, the flurry has begun. I am already not sleeping well. Trying to think of all that needs doing. And realizing the emotional charge of each last thing I do and all the firsts ahead.

I'm thankful that I have done this before. But I am in need of much grace and prayer as I dash through the last visit with people, the finishing up loose ends, tying-up matters, and saying good-byes. On to the first time of moving overseas without leaving parents behind, first time to work for environmental issues, and first time to be with such a fledgling organization.

There is so much more to say, but I need to get packing at the moment.

Thank you for all your support.

my country is in every clime;
I can be calm and free from care
On any shore, since God is there."
