It's hard to believe that in 3 weeks we will be doing the exact same thing. I've tried to play over and over in my mind how this initial meeting will go. What will I say? What will I do? What will I bring? Honestly, I just don't know. I guess I'm leaving the Holy Spirit PLENTY of room to work here. His strength is perfected in my weakness and I've got no shortage of that!
We have much to do over the next 18 days before we head out. I have a nice little pile of "China stuff" growing in the corner of my bedroom. At some point I'll need to deal with all that. But these days all I really want to do is stare at the sweet face that in 21 short days will be in the same room with me and not simply staring back at me from my computer screen.
