USA Bound!!

Just a quick update...we are heading to the USA next week.  So after some time to adjust to the new timezone, which is 13 hours behind our current one, we should be rip, roaring and ready to get together with all the wonderful friends and family that we have been missing these last two years living in Korea.

More Waiting

While we received the paperwork we needed to get our orders, things were not quite right.  Someone moved the date that we can leave Korea to the day before we are suppose to report to our next duty station....which happens to be three months from now.  I am beside myself.  Things have become even more frustrating.  This extension complicates my so called life as I know it.

I have cried more in the last two days than I have in a while.  You see I have only paced myself to get to the original date we were given for leaving Korea.  An extra two and a half months is just too much for me right now.

I am really trying to trust God, knowing that He knows the bigger picture which I can't quite see.  I am so thankful for my friends who have emailed me, called me and prayed with me.  Thank you all so much! Yes, the body of Christ is at work in the lives of fellow believers.  I appreciate your encouragement!

There are people trying to help us get some things fixed but we have been told that we will not get back the original date to leave Korea BUT we might be able to leave in 1 1/2 months instead of  2 1/2 months.  So each day, I am leaning on God...trusting Him in each step of the way.  Which is not always easy!

Through the ups and downs that we have been going through lately, I have been encouraged by a few songs.  You can follow the links here to YouTube to listen to them.
