We have come so far on this journey - from the beginning of this journey it has been a leap of faith.  But then we got down to brass tacks and I realized that I would be getting on a plane and leaving my family behind.

I lost it.

I almost felt so paralyzed with the thought I wanted to forget the whole thing
I know that sounds horrible ~ but this is reality.

I always knew it would be hard
but I never expected this child of mine 
to burst out crying when I told him we would be leaving on Weds.
Not only is this momma's boy going to miss his momma
but I am taking his hero with me.


(this is why I haven't been able to really pack)

And then today's sermon hit me like a MACK truck

You see if I trusted enough to take the Leap of Faith to Griffen
then I also needed to trust enough that God would care for my family
while we are gone.

Time and time again, God has shown me that he is right beside me.

I can't jsut have Faith when I want to, I must have Faith all the way through.

Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith in Action

11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

  1. Oh're going to make it! I remember feeling that way the first mission trip I took around the globe. So many tears.

    But the Lord gave me the grace!

    Praying for you now. He's a cutie...♥

  2. I felt the same way before we left last year to bring Luke home. My heart felt utterly torn to pieces, but like you said, you have to place them in God's hands and know He will care for them while you are gone.

  3. praying for your momma's heart and can't wait to see your entire family on US soil! ALL together finally!!!! Love you and thank you for sharing! <3 y'all!

  4. I'll be praying for you, I know it is so hard. When Clara came home a year ago, things just fell the wya they did and I had to travel alone, a sweet friend ended up coming with me but it was so hard to leave my family! God took amazing care of them and I was so thankful... praying for you as you finish all the details to head out that you have time for special moments, sweet hugs and fun memories with your kiddos at home.

  5. You've so got this, Yvette. Prayers coming your way and a virtual hug to get you through. {{Hugs}}
