Where Would You Like To Go?

Headed to the 'Sip

boarding our flight to Madagascar - 2011
July 1, 2011 we flew from Meridian, MS to Madagascar for the first time - it's crazy to think that it's been over 3 years since that day.  Pray for us as we fly to Mississippi today/tomorrow?  Pray for understanding folks to be sitting around our girls on the plane and for sleep to come easily while we are flying.  Pray that the luggage will be where it needs to be, when it needs to be there and that the flights would be as smooth as possible.

Then will you pray specifically for our girls?  For a 3 year old who is all too aware of what she's leaving behind and still very excited about who she is going to see - this is a very hard balancing act emotionally for anyone but definitely for a preschooler.  And for Lyllian, will you pray that she figures out her days/nights?  She's worked hard (and so have her parents) to help her get into a schedule and now we're switching it all around on her.  As far as Steve and I go - will you pray that we'll be aware (even when we're jetlagged) of how we can demonstrate His patience & grace in the same way He has extended it to us over and over again?

If you know me - you know that I can be described as "emotional" on any day of the week - throw in all the variables that the next 72 hours...and well I'm confident there will be tears & a lot of them.  Your prayers are never taken for granted and I promise we won't start doing so now.  Thank you for praying over our travels and reentry to the States.  Hope to see many of you soon!
