Barefoot Girl fledges our nest today. She's been planning this trip for some time and she'll be gone for a couple of months. She's off to study at L'Abri in Switzerland and now the date for departure has finally arrived.
Her bag is packed...a few clothes, books, her bible, and some tea.
A lot of tea actually, and a tiny Chinese tasting set so she can share tea with her new friends. After all, the best way to make new friends in a foreign country is to share a cup of tea with them. But tea reminds her of home, too. Oolong for Mum, lapsang for sisters, and Assam for a dear friend.
She's ready. I'm not...but I am happy. She's beautiful and precious and God has amazing things for her to do.
So, sail on Barefoot Girl, your time has come to shine. All you dreams are on their way. See how they shine! But if you need me, I'm sailing right behind....
