Our son the young professor and his family are en route to Indonesia to begin life there in a new world. Our farewell over the phone was warm and loving, and I realize how much of a gift it is to be in relationship with my kids, all of them.
Ben and Kari - you are in our prayers today with the little ones, traveling with your tons of luggage. I am not the least worried that you won't have the stuff for this adventure. Let us know when you arrive. I pray fifteen angels to watch over you. That is not a waste of angels.
