I am contemplating a missions trip to Peru in the summer 2011... What am I thinking?? I don't fly well, I don't know more than 10 Spanish words and the what ifs keep playing in my mind. If I manage to raise enough money that will only be half of it. The other half will be actually the flying. Its a little over 3000 miles to Lima but the 16 hours in flight is what keeps nagging at me. I know I can take something to help me out but the storeis that our pastor Chip Wheeler told us about the plane going sideways has me questioning it. But who am I to question destiny and what God may have in store for me and my family. I have alot of praying to do concerning this trip.

Does anyone ever take the time anymore to think about the presentation of something? Sitting here wrapping birthday presents I got to thinking about it. I can remember my Dad spending hours wrapping gifts for my Mom at Christmas time. He did occasionally let the ladies at JB White wrap her Estae Lauder gifts. I think as Americans we loose touch in the simple things that use to me so much. Just my thoughts. . . .

Why do we always let things in our lives get in the way of little life's pleasures. I love to cook, bake and could spend hours just scrapping the kids memories. But as mothers we begin to loose ourselves in our childrens lives. Once they have left home if forever or for just awhile why does it take us forever to pick ourselves up and move on. I know from recent experience and need to take my own advice but it is hard.....We shall see what the upcoming days have in store for me.
