Born to Fly

Has there ever been a song that you hear and think, "that's me! I could have written that! It fits me perfectly!" Well right now my anthem of sorts is "Born to Fly", sung by Sara Evans (aside: past anthem was "Sand in My Shoes" by Dido). If you click on the title you can see the lyrics, if you're really interested. Hence the new blog name.

I am so tired. Today was another day of frantic emailing, last minute Wal-Mart tripping, and visiting. So if this blog is rather incoherent or if they are any grammatical mistakes, just ignore them (ahem, not that anyone would actually critique my blog for grammar or spelling-- BBB).

A million thanks to everyone who commented or sent sweet emails or called me before I jet off. I wish I could have more time to respond like I want to to all of you. Once I get settled in Brazil I'll have some time to do that. I love you all!

I'm excited. I feel like I've been waiting for this for two years, and it hardly seems possible that I'm getting on a plane tomorrow. I didn't really let myself think about it really happening until I had my ticket, my visa, etc. So really I've only "known" about it for a few weeks. And they flew by! I can't imagine how fast 3 months is going to go.

Well I'm nearly dead, and I still have to finish packing. Love you all very very much. I'll blog ya from the flip side. ;)

God be with you! Actually your life (or how the situations in your life have been working out) have already proven that God is with you, at least to me. Although I do not know you, your story has touch my family and made us think alot more about a life of faith. Maybe you should write a book? I am sure it could reach others just by sharing your life: a life that God used and is still using. Sometimes the only Bible, the only sermon, the only message people will hear is someone else friendship, story, and life. I am sure this is only the beginning of whatever it is God has in mind for you.
God bless you and keep you!
Go in peace!
ANd thank you...........
