The bags were packed, they were on the list and now we wait to see if they would make the final cut and fly to Seattle. They did. Seems most are flying HOME to Japan at this point and not back to the states.
I found myself a bit nervous as the time came for the family to leave. Hesitant to be staying in Japan - alone - without kids or Michael (though I'd done 8 months without Michael). I realized WAIT....I've not BEEN ALONE more than one night in the past 28 years.....and this is a new experience.
I left the terminal and headed to the chapel where Sarah and I had a date to fill PWOC retreat totes.
Sempter Gumby has been our refrain on this retreat team. First, we were scheduled in May. Then we had to move to April. Then we had an earthquake and 60% of our group left, and all were nervous about leaving kids for 3 days....we moved to a local event....Going to be great fun and I can't wait to hear what God is going to say to all of us...we are surely primed to consider what it means to SHINE IN THE LIGHT OF HIS GLORY.
The house is so very quiet tonight. Very quiet...but I'm relaxing.....and cleaning. I may not get the whole house clean but I can do some main areas..... Having done two rooms I think it's time to climb into bed and watch some Monk.
Living all of life before the face of God...
