Well, I leave on Sunday to head to Zambia, Africa on a missions trip! It has been my dream for the past 11 years to go there and now it is coming true! I've wanted it so much and now that it's scares me! It's surreal! Right now I'm more worried about the travel details. Crazy, I know. But isn't that just like us crazy Christians...We beg God for things and when we get them, we get worried, ungrateful. Forgive me, Lord! I am ready to get away for awhile. Life has been strangling me lately! I'm ready to get off of myself and get some perspective. I'm ready to help those in need! But I'm also ready to get some healing for myself! May I come back not the same...but changed for His glory! 5 days after I return I will head to the beautiful mountains of Colorado to take my precious YL kids to camp. I am excited! But I pray for rest! And I pray that God will use me profusley to pour out His love on these hurting, orphaned children, and on my hurting Yl kids! I am about to see more pain than I know of now. Fill me, Lord! And please watch over my little man, Linus while I'm away, and my big man, Ryan! Talk to yall sometime in the near future! Africa bound....

birds diahrrea (sp)?

So I've had the case of the monday's! I've tried to remind myself all day that I need to rejoice always, and again he says, rejoice! I seem to make it there in my head but can not get it out on my tongue for the poor souls who surround me. Then one of my patients at work came in in terrible shape and I thought, "Now, Corrie, it could be worse." No luck, I was still convinced it was my horrible, rotten, no good, very bad day! I suppose the curse of Eve that decided to visit me today had a lot to do with it as well! Then I stepped out of work, went to my car, and found what I though was a joke. A bird, who I imagine must have been terribly sick, had relieved itself on my car in ways that I had never seen or even known that they were even capable of doing! Thats when it finally came...I laughed! I laughed so hard that my co-worker thought I was crazy! Maybe I am. But that little gift left on my car was perhaps God's way of saying, cheer up, could be worse! Maybe it was even one of HIs chosen doves! Ha! So I leave you with this....rejoice in the Lord always, and again, I say, REJOICE!!!! :) It could be worse...
