The city of brotherly love

In about 5 hours, I will be headed to the airport to catch a 3 hour flight to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for 6 days of fellowship, fun, friendship, and more. I don’t like flying. I don’t like planes, but… I know God. I trust God. I have been ‘working on packing’ for the past few hours. I can say that one suitcase is filled with jeans, shirts, and more. I have a few more things to pack – a jacket, shoes, all my hygiene / personal items, accessories, etc. I am so excited. My stomach is a breeding grounds for butterflies right now.

My flight leaves at 7:20a and arrives in Philly at about 10:15. About 3 hours. I have to make sure I pack some good reading material and music. I’m definitely taking the 2 books I’ve been reading lately – What Is Reformed Theology by R.C. Sproul and The Pleasures of God by John Piper. I would love to take my whole CD collection as well, but truth be told, it’s WAY too huge. I have to load up the Itunes on my Motorola Slvr and pick out some good CDs.

Gosh, I can’t believe I am flying somewhere. I am 26 and this is only the 3rd time in my LIFE. I’m excited though (but nervous). I am VERY much looking forward to being at First Friday Fundamentals. Gosh. Praise God for even having opportunities like this with His people!

I may also get a chance to visit a school I am looking into – Philadelphia Biblical University. And I get to see my sis Tiffany as well, which is a joy. I haven’t seen her since she moved there in September, so… I’m just going to have a wonderful vacation in Philly.

With that said, please pray that I have a safe flight there and a safe flight back on Thursday the 6th. Please also pray that God is most definitely glorified in all that is done.

    Sounds like an exciting weekend. Hope the flight goes okay – I’ll pray for you. I love flying but I can appreciate being scared of something, even if others find it daft! For me, it is spiders – yes, yes, I know they are little but they can run at you! Urgh, feel a little queasy just thinking about them! 😉
