So...today finally came and God really showed up! We all went to lunch...our last one as a complete family for a while. We went to our family favorite--Alamo Cafe! (thanks Ben!) Then we all went to the airport to send Bailey off. When we got there, there were a lot of her friends there (a surprise to her) to say goodbye. It was great! We got her checked in, and then just spent time with everyone. My favorite part was when we all got in a circle, held hands, and prayed for Bailey. Right there in the middle of the airport! Soon it was time for Bailey to head through security.....so one last goodbye and lots of pictures and watching Bailey leave.
I must say that though I did cry a bit....it was certainly not my normal amount! God just seemed to give me a great peace through it all! How amazing it was. John 1 says, "We have seen his glory The glory of the One and Only who comes from the Father with grace and truth." I was truly the recipient of that grace this afternoon. I have seen his glory and I am humbled.
Right now, Bailey is on her way to London set to arrive at around 1am. I have sent her into the hands of God and trust that He has her safe and secure in His will.
