Thankful Thursday

I just can't seem to get enough done fast enough! I can't believe we are leaving in two days...I really need to get with it. There is still so much to be done. Of course though, for today's post....I would have to say that I am thankful that we are going on this trip! We haven't been back to Kansas since the day we moved out of it, 2 years and 11 months ago. I will get to see my 5 nieces who have to be SOOO big by now. I haven't even seen a picture of them in all this time. Grandma will get to see her grand kids that she adores so much, and misses terribly. She started tearing up when I finally told her that we were coming for sure! We will get to see old church family and what I am excited the most for.....NO TRAFFIC and being able to look up in the sky and seeing as far as the eye can see! I know that may seem silly to you, but when you move from corn fields to a city like Atlanta, it's quite an adjustment. Plus, we live just outside Atlanta and there are sooooo many REALLY TALL trees here, that you are lucky if you get to see down the street, much less far away. In Kansas, you can see the horizon from almost anywhere you may be standing. I miss that! Just a never ending blue sky, fields of sunflowers, cows, and green, green pastures! And if that isn't good enough, then we get to go over to God's country....

My Rocky Mountains! I haven't seen them in over 6 years and I haven't seen my entire family on my dads side in that long either. What a blessing! I couldn't be much more thankful than I am right now! God has worked EVERYTHING out and has shown his majesty and power! Where we failed, or couldn't go any further, He carried things through, and provided us with the many things we needed to make this trip. Hallelujah, Praise His Name! I probably won't post again for a while, but I'll have the camera and computer with me on the trip and will post pictures periodically as I can! Thank you all for your prayers for us and this trip...THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
