Here we go!!!

In ONE week I will board a plane and tentatively not return to the states for nine months. I leave behind a sister-in-law who will deliver my very first niece, (due the day I leave for the UK) a dear friend who is due in October who has requested that I be god mother to her unborn child. I also leave behind dear friends who will be getting married who I had hoped to do their wedding cake, and many other life situations that I will now observe from afar. This is not to imply that I will not return and reenter into the lives of my family and friends and pick up on all that I missed out on. This is not a call for pity in a choice that I made to go and study in England. This also is not to imply that my adventures in England will not be an exciting adventure. This is only to say that for me I realize the choice I made and the impact it will have. This is to say that I need your help. It may seem strange but I can't do this alone! I need your encouragement and prayers as I can tell you for sure I will have my doubts and my insecurities packed in with all the other stuff accompanying me on this journey. In many ways I feel as though I take you with me. I am so thankful for the few who are following me in my blogging, you support me in my travels by doing so. Thank you and please pray for myself and all my family and friends. Pray for safe travels, peace of mind and God's presence to be made known as I learn to lean more upon my rock and shepherd and less upon my own reason and understanding.

Ps. 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation, of whom shall I fear? The Lord is a stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
