…curbside to gate, with a pit stop for a pumpkin latte to kick the vacation off, and a slight scolding at the security check for an infraction. (Dang…always forget something in the labyrinth of regulations.) Thank you, Atlanta Airport, for being calm today! I’m off!
My suitcase is loaded with books, gifts, one package of highly-coveted brownie mix, and sketchbook project.
My ear is language-tuned after watching “Avenue Montaigne”—a French film that is so quintessentially French I was laughing even in the serious parts—I love the French!!! Can’t wait to be immersed in the language again, and flex my French language muscles.
I’m ‘prayed up’—with many spontaneous prayers yesterday and this morning, as I bumped into colleagues and friends. Travel alerts notwithstanding.
One set of verses is tucked in my pocket—courtesy of one of our worship leaders here, a towering sister from the DR:
“For the seed shall be prosperous, the vine shall give its fruit, the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew. I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these…Ask the LORD for rain in the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds, he will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone!”—Zecharaiah 8:12, 10:1
Sounds rich, doesn’t it?! Bring it on, LORD!!!!
I’m trying to pick out the Frenchies here at the gate, but so far, only Americans, with one African. The array of travel paraphernalia is astonishing.
Jet lag, here I come!!! See you on the other side!!
PS - I'm on the other side - safe and sound :) Patience as I navigate unpredictable wireless connections!!!
