A trip. And he knows me well. :)

Tomorrow, I'm flying to Houston to attend a special Celebration for all the women who memorized 24 Scripture verses this year thru Beth Moore's blog!
I am very excited...I know it's going to be tons of fun and extremely encouraging.
I am also a little nervous, because this is the first trip of this magnitude I've taken since all my back stuff has happened.  Should be an interesting adventure! I'm just gonna take stuff as it comes.

I also wanted to share a cute little anecdote before I take off. 
I already posted about it on Facebook, so sorry if this is overlapping for anyone.

But while I was packing the other night I mention to Andrew, "Good grief, it seems like everyone is so worried about me--I have travelled before, you know." (I had been *a little* bombarded with helpful travel hints that day.)
And his answer to me was brilliant; the man knows me well:  "Kristen, it's kinda like in 'Return to Me' when years after her big surgery Grace goes to Italy... and her grandpa and his friends are all standing around worrying if she's going to be alright, and asking if she really wants to do this. We've all been with you thru so much, and we just want to make sure you're going to be ok."
And I totally got it--I speak movie. :)
And *tears* it made me very grateful for everyone in my life that cares so much.

Wish me luck!!

  1. I love that "you speak movie" and props to the man you've got who has learned to speak your language. Is "movie" mentioned as one of the five love languages? Hm. I'm gonna have to check that out:) Have a GREAT time. I'm praying and can't wait for coffee to talk ALL about it.
