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.
