Waiting for our first flight, from Charlotte to JFK, thought I'd check in here!
One of my best friends, Cat, stopped by my house last night. Her arms were loaded with boxes of goodies to finish filling up our bags so we could share some US "stuff" with the kids at the orphanages & schools. I plundered through the bags to find a large stash of stuffed animals, crayons, coloring books, pencils, and other toys. I had a cool time just imagining the kids' faces as they receive this offering! Then I put them in the bags & took them to the bedroom where we've been packing/weighing the bags. BTW, Cat & friends -- THANK YOU!!!
We sat down to a delicious meal (thanks, AJ!) then I got busy with some last-minute emails & bill paying and "stuff." I finished my chores, and at last headed back to the bedroom. As I entered the hallway, I heard laughter -- almost silly giggles! Joyful, bubbling, anticipating fun laughter! The kind that makes you just want to jump right in there & laugh, too!
I entered the bedroom, & there was Dave, sitting on the floor, taking each stuffed animal out of the bag, looking at it, squeezing it, then putting it in the suitcase. He was having the BEST time, just enjoying the goodies that the kids would soon receive.
This just thrilled me right down to my toes, folks! I am delighted that HE is as excited about visiting Ghana as I am!! God seriously answers prayers, that is absolutely true!
We've just gotten our first Silver Lining of the day:
It was just announced that our flight to NYC would be delayed about 40 minutes. BUT -- here's the Silver Lining -- They were taking care to make sure we wouldnt be delayed for our next flights!
Blessings, yall! Don't forget to read Dave's latest couple of entries at www.weministry.blogspot.com
Love, Anita & David
