Waiting patiently

Here I sit at 1:51 am trying to keep myself awake so that maybe I'll be able to adjust to the time difference better when I get there. There's nothing left to do but shower and shave my legs, but I'll do that closer to when we have to leave. I can't wait to get on the road and in the air. Did I mention that Singapore Airlines is THE BEST airline and I can't wait to see what movies they have waiting for me at my seat. Only 6 hours to go!

As I sit here and wait, I was thinking about all my blog friends and how great you've been at wishing me a wonderful trip (even waking in the night to realize you forgot to say goodbye ... thanks, Lovella). I'm hoping to have a bit of time to update my blog a couple of times when I'm away, but I can't promise anything. I've heard there will be lots of Christmas plays/band concerts and such to go to the first week and a half, then my sister and I are taking off on a little side trip for 3 days, then there's Christmas, then we're all taking a drive up to Thailand for New Year's, then we'll relax for a couple of days and then I'm on my way home! Wait, how did that fly by so fast? I'm not even there yet! Ok, back to thinking about you all. Thanks for your holiday best wishes and prayers for safe travels. I'll leave you with this.

This morning as I was waiting in line at Tim Horton's, I saw the sun rising over Mt. Baker. This picture doesn't do it justice (especially with the beautiful power lines in there), but it was awesome. It was so cool to remember to take pleasure in the beauty God has created.

As the sun was rising, this song was on the radio. I'll just quote the chorus.

We are the reason

That He gave His life

We are the reason

That He suffered and died

To a world that was lost

He gave all He could give

To show us the reason to live

Thank you, Lord, for giving us a reason to live.
