3:12 a.m. and I'm awake....

Night three and I've discovered if I come down to the dinning room, I can sit on nice sofas, watch the lights across the bay and get Internet connection. This beats tossing in bed and praying, "God, I have to sleep."  ::snort::  This is a beautiful retreat location.

This is an amazing training retreat..... The PWOC international board shares their heart and vision, we from regional boards learn much, the worship is awesome, making new friends and connecting with past friends is priceless.  Did I mention the worship? The time to spend alone with God? It's good....I'll sleep on the plane back to Japan.  I'm praying for quiet seat partners. LOL

I miss Mike sitting around here. I miss the kids too and realize that the longer separation is approaching very quickly. How blessed I am to have a godly husband and children. God is good.

Just in case some are tempted to remind me not to sleep in the day time - I'm not. I go to sleep and my eyes pop open about 1 a.m. because it's really 3 PM. LOL I didn't know that the past two nights - but I checked the computer close this a.m. LOL

I'm truly blessed to have this opportunity to sit under or around or something the mantle/anointing of these leaders.

Good to hear from you and PTL for the retreat.

Just enjoy to the fullest. Soak it all up and we are so glad you are doing that. What a way to prepare for your job and upcoming travel.

Goodness knows you will have ample time to sleep on the plane going home. If it is to noisy just take a motion sickness pill and you will sleep.

PTL for you family and this time you are having. Sounds like a beautiful place and.......... love/prayers --- Dad/Mom T.

Where are you with such a huge time difference to Japan? I thought you were only going to Korea?
