Well, all…the time has come! What a bittersweet day. I intellectually know that I’ll be very happy in Northern Ireland, and that I’ll learn so much. It is clear that the Lord’s hand has been in every step of this process. But…leaving home is hard to do. My heart is definitely here in Reston.
“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Do I have the courage? By no means. However, I will be strong and courageous because the Lord my God goes with me wherever I go!
Thank you to all of you here in the U.S. who have made my life so lovely. I had a wonderful summer, and many of you played a part in that. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We’ll be having one final family dinner tonight and then I’m off. My flight from Dulles to Heathrow leaves at 8:45 pm. So long dear ones and so long America!
