FIVE days -
FIVE DAYS. Five Days until I leave for China.
The ocean was blue and rough and cold tonight.
The Falcon 9 launch was perfect and full of colors as the sunset lit up the contrails.
I'm memorizing my path through the Newark airport
from Terminal C to B because I'm over preparing.
Kimberly asked me today what I was looking forward to most in China and
because I was super hungry at the moment, I teasingly said "Food", and we laughed.
But immediately, as I always do, I thought of the children.
I thought of the first time I would touch and hold a child I've never known but prayed for.
As always, I was instantly in tears. It seems a holy moment.
I keep praying that God would teach us all His adoptive, abundant love,
deeper and more safe than the greatest ocean and world we can dream of.
I want to SEE. I want to HEAR. I want to KNOW.
Lead me, Jesus.
