Well, my friends, the time has come! We'll be leaving Johnson City in about an hour to drive to Knoxville, and then we fly out tomorrow morning! For those of you reading this who have supported me along the way, financially and in prayer, thank you so much! I wouldn't be about to embark on this journey without you! I won't be getting online at all while I'm gone, so there really is no need to check the blog until the end of May. But don't worry, I'll be taking lots of pictures and will share with you what I can when I get back!
And I had the following verse as my status on facebook, but it was too long, so I'm sharing it with you. I think it's beautiful!
I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
~ Revelation 21:22-27
