It’s beginning to look a little like India……

All through the house…..

Thank you, Connie, for mailing me “Indian clothes” to wear while traveling…..

We had to try these on the other night when we had company!! Special prize to anyone who knows everyone in this picture……(sorry about that for those of you who haven’t visited Grayson)

Our house is finally beginning to show signs of an approaching trip.

A mixture of suitcases and supplies for Nick’s Foundation ministries -Basket of Hope, Nick Nooks, and Adrienne’s Angel Memory Boxes- cover our living room floor and furniture.
God has definitely opened the door for so many opportunities to reach out to others who are hurting. We are thankful even though we would trade all of this for Nick’s presence with us.

We fly out of Cincinnati at 4 p.m. on Thursday and then out of New York at 11 p.m. We land in New Delhi, India around 7:00ish pm (India time) on Friday evening.

We lose a day as we are flying, which truthfully boggles my mind.

I told my mom that if you can lose a day and stay on this planet, then there is no telling how time really works in Heaven.
The Bible says that to God, “a day is like a thousand years.” I truly believe that!
Someone told me recently that if that is literally true, then a lifetime on earth is just a few hours in God’s time, so Nick and Adrienne may only be “waiting” for us for a couple of hours at the most!!! I love that thought!!!!!!!!!

Well, I just wanted to send a little note and let you know that I am not sure how often I will be near a computer after tomorrow and how much time I will have to blog until Easter Sunday, but I will write in my journal the entire trip and pray for you all constantly.

When I get home, I will share all of my memories with you.

I am praying that God will use this trip to touch all of our children’s lives in very significant ways and that we will feel Nick and Adrienne’s presence with us constantly.
I am praying that this trip can form a bond of ministry between Nick’s Foundation and the orphanage that will help the children there in very special ways.
Who knows? Some of you who are reading this may very well be traveling to India some day to do a week or so of mission work! I’ll be praying about that too!
I really can’t imagine what we are going to see and experience.
I am nervous, excited, sad, happy, anxious, calm, and every other emotion rolled into one…….
This is God’s trip. I’m going to have to totally lean on Him for my every need.
I’ll write one more time (at least) before we head out Thursday.
Love you all so much,

I will write again tonight, but I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you that in the midst of our packing and planning, you are all on my heart and mind.

Thankful for all of you,
