getting ready ...

thank you for your encouragement ... for the trip ahead ... i so appreciate it!

i have been doing the "getting ready" things ... such as: ordering some euros (the bank said it usually takes 2 weeks to get the money in, but they did it in 24 hours - no charge!) ... buying appropriate clothes (it worked out they were on sale, and so comfortable!) ... and one of the students who works part-time at the library, will do my hours for me, since it is break time here in manitoba!

2 of our old neighbours will look in on leo ... the local grocery store will deliver leo his chocolate milk and other food stuff - all he has to do is call ... things are falling into place ...

i am undecided on how to get to the airport ... i do have a few options ... just praying for the best one for all concerned ...

tomorrow is a work day for me ... so maybe it will be good to just do the library stuff, and put all my thinking & figuring on hold for the day ... the Lord has been so good in working out even the smallest of details, there must be something eternal that will come out of this trip ... i'm praying so!

God always has a plan...all we have to do is slow down...and listen to his plan and follow it...

That is wonderful, everything is working out for you. I'm glad you have some people checking on Leo. You will get everything done, and I know God has many blessings for you and Leo.

Good to know that things are falling into place for your trip, though it will have sadness with it. I hope the flights and all things go as well as possible for you! (((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

I was thinking while reading this, that God is really planning out your trip - right down to having clothes on sale!

I am sorry to hear about your cousin. May God strengthen all of you through this trial and may He bless your trip as well.

God's Grace.

Since things are falling into place so well then I am sure you are "Supposed to go"!! God is good!! He is working out the details.

Happy Easter.
