We rolled out of bed at 3 AM to catch a 5:30 AM flight to Sacramento. We have planned to do this trip for months, but it never fails that we never feel ready to leave as we leave. With lots of grace from God the seven of us boarded on time and about 8 hours later, with a stop, we were in the golden state. Amazing.
For the girls it was their second time flying in their life. The wonder and excitment still lingers. They are adjusting so quickly to life here, and I think it will be sad to see these "firsts" disappear.
We are grateful for a few days to reconnect with our friends and partners in this area. It never has failed that when we leave this place, we leave encouraged and loved. I hope we can shake this jet lag quickly or at least recover from our way too early start of our travel day.
If you are in the Fair Oaks, CA area I hope we will see you. We will be at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church this Sunday. I am thinking we will make the 8 AM service and maybe the 9 AM. If you see us please say hello.
