I can't believe that I will be leaving for China in just a few hours. I've waited so long for this day that this moment is totally surreal.
I spent my day relaxing and running errands. It was a busy day...but so fun as I made my final preparations for Emma. I had the oil changed in the car and had it washed. I got a massage and a final, pre-China adjustment at the chiropractor. I hung out and prayed with family and friends. And I cleaned like a wild woman! Everything is ready...even me.
I have prayed Phillipians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, with prayer and petition and with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God which trancends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus." constantly and it seems to be working! I am filled with peace, joy...and total excitement.
Don't get me wrong...I have had plenty of anxious moments. And I am being realistic about those first few days with Emma. I know there will be some really tough moments, but I also know that my God is with me! He has been so faithful to bring me to this point and I know He isn't going anywhere!
Keep those prayers coming! I appreciate your encouragement and support so much! Blogger and Facebook are blocked in China, but my friend Sydney will be blogging for me via email. (Thank you, my dear friend!) I know that your comments, support and suggestions will be such an encouragement in the days ahead!
Next post from China!
