Scripture for the day: "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.' The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord."
-- Lamentations 3:22-26
Well folks, here we are at the turning of a page in my little life. At 6:50am I will fly from T-town to Dallas, then from Dallas to Tokyo, so at this time tomorrow (CST) I will be in Japan! Crazy, huh? But I'm ready. I told a friend today that since I bought my ticket I've felt like I have just been flung from a slingshot... there's no slowing down or turning back... which is good. I need that kind of propulsion. I don't know when I'll be able to blog again, but just keep checking and I'll be sure to post a "yes I'm here and alive" message as soon as I can. I have a feeling this blog might get more exciting after a few foreigner moments in Japan. :)
Thank you to my family for raising me to be strong willed, independent, and having purpose and direction. This is not an unnecessary chance, and I am soon to be an asset. :) Thank you to my friends for loving me and supporting me through this roller coaster. I wouldn't be who I am without you. Thank you for reading this for whatever reason and being interested in me and my thoughts. I love you all.
