T-minus 4 days and counting...

I think. I mean, that's the tentative plan as long as Anita or one of her friends can meet me at the border on Saturday... I hesitate to say with any amount of certainty "this is what I am going to do." I think I have a new or deeper appreciation of the following verse:
"Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." You don't even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." (James 4:13-15)
I must admit, I used to think it sounded kind of over the top to preface every statement with "Lord willing..." -- but I think I might be starting to get it a little more now. So why all this rambling on about plans changing? Well, as you may have guessed by now, plans have changed... again... but I'm still planning on going down to Monterrey, MX, Lord willing! But instead of teaching at UVM I'm following a lead to teach with Berlitz, an English Language School. So that is not a definite thing yet either, but it's looking like a probability at this point. So please keep all of this in your prayers! And pray for Anita and her sister and UVM.
Thank you!

I guess I'm on the list of people who didn't know you had this blog! I was just telling my husband today that when we pray and give God our requests we need to remember that what we ultimately want, or should want is God's Will in all things. Now I can show him the scripture you shared. It's awesome how God brought this whole venture into your life. And Lord willing it will all work out and things will be more definite and less uncertainty.
