Mission Trip: Postponed

Jonathan & I were all set to go on a mission trip to an orphanage in Monterrey, Mexico during Spring Break.  We were both SO excited about what God was going to do during this trip, & to make it even cooler, several of our really good friends were also going.  Unfortunately, we got some bad news today.  There has been an outbreak of violence in Mexico related to the drug cartel, & several were killed today in the area several of our team members were going.  As a result, our church leaders decided it's in the best interest of the team to postpone the trip.  I think this was a really wise decision considering the circumstances and  I have a peace about it.  I guess it obviously wasn't God's timing, and I'm thankful the Lord gives us the wisdom to listen to Him and wait on His perfect timing.  I know this trip, whenever it may be, will be a blessing and I am still so excited about the opportunity to serve with some of my favorite brothers and sisters in Christ.

What to do now?

This mission trip was going to take up the entire week of Spring Break, so now I have all this free time! I have to admit, as disappointed as I am about the mission trip, I am SO looking forward to the much needed rest and free time!!  My days typically run from 7 a.m.-7:30 p.m.,!  (I even do pitching lessons on Saturdays!) Jonathan & I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to meet with a mortgage broker & go house hunting! So fun!!  I'm also going to finalize some wedding plans....make a decision on bridesmaid/flowergirl dresses, determine reception site (I'm deciding between the banquet hall at Hopewell & the Gwinnett Environmental Center), finally find time to talk with my photographer, & work on that guest list.  Looking forward to it...only 11 more days!

P.S. What is up with the snow flurries in Spring? I need some sunshine in my life, please!
