To be honest with you, I have not been very calm over the past 24 hours. When I think of all the details yet to be taken care of so that we can go to China the first two weeks of April, I get really freaked out!!! So many things I have absolutely no control over. So much I can not do yet because our TA has not come yet. No guarantee we will get a consulate appointment at the last minute, because so many others will also want an appointment right before the trade show begins the 3RD week of April! I had to remind God that it takes a long time to move a big ship, and I feel like the Titanic heading right for an iceberg!!! This morning I felt God was reminding me I was not the captain of the ship! Even if the task is "hard", it is a small matter to Him! I should just keep doing what I'm able to do, and trust Him for everything else! So I cleaned the kitchen, did some laundry, and shopped for lunch stuff. When I was at the store, I found these giant chocolate ladybugs. They are marshmallow, covered in chocolate. I decided to make 5 Easter baskets for a surprise for my kids. I will leave them on the dinning room table, and they will (God willing)get them when we return from our trip!
