I can't tell you enough how proud I am of these girls. Last night as I laid in bed I thought about being their age again...I knew I would have never even thought about doing something so courageous! I STILL wouldn't take a trip like that - I truely struggle with letting go and following God wherever He leads me. I have so much fear inside - I want to be at home where I know I have a warm, comfy bed to sleep in every night. I'm super anxious about flying, I want to always know where I'm going and what it will be like. I am not as brave as these sweet girls. Or maybe I just need to push my fears aside and go where He leads me. It would take so much courage to get on a plane and go to a place you have never seen before - not knowing what to expect, what you will encounter, where you will sleep that night. I know that these girls will be a part of so many miracles this week - the Lord is going to use them to touch so many lives. Children will embrace them, woman will admire them, men will see their strength and courage...and lives will be changed forever.
Please keep this group in your prayers - just pray that God's plan is accomplished, that these sweet girls are safe, and everything unfolds smoothly during their trip. I admire this group of people so much, and they have inspired me to let go and let God:) Thanks girls!!
I also wanted to share a few pictures I took of a friend's little boy...I thought they turned out super sweet and I swear he could be a model:)!! Take a look at this incredible little boy:
