What's UP?

We are... or will be soon. We leave late tonight to head for the airport to catch our flight which takes off in the wee hours of Wednesday morning... heading for Michigan. We've been smiling lately - the high temps in MI aren't even touching our low temps here, and it has actually been on the "pleasant-er" side of things the past few days as far as the local heat index.

But we wanted to ask y'all to pray for us as we travel. It is a very long day, three flights and JFK isn't always the easiest or friendliest airport for families with munchkins and we qualify as one of those.

Here's our flight schedule:

  • We leave at 2:45 a.m. from NIAMEY flying to CASABLANCA.
  • Our next flight leaves CASA at 10:45 a.m. and arrives in JFK, NEW YORK at 2:45 in the afternoon, local time.
  • Our almost final leg of the trip will hopefully depart JFK at 7:00 p.m. and arrive in Detroit at 9:33 p.m....
  • ...at which point we hope in the vans, buckle half the kids into carseats and head for Lansing. Maybe we'll stop and get a Frosty on the way!

Seriously, though - please pray for us as we travel... we always ask folks to pray for uneventful travel... that's the best kind. Thanks in advance!


  1. praying for safe travels - and bring your sweatshirts! It is 50 degrees this morning. I'm not complaining, but I am gleefully wearing my sweatshirt and jeans. :-)

  2. I made a "big for me" trip yesterday and as I drove home I remembered your trip was today...this morning I read about Jacob traveling to Goshen with his GINORMOUS family...and was reminded of you again...praying your journeys will be UNEVENTFUL...

    Gensis 46 (vers 28 made me laugh out loud)
    26 All those who went to Egypt with Jacob—those who were his direct descendants, not counting his sons' wives—numbered sixty-six persons. 27 With the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob's family, which went to Egypt, were seventy in all.
    28 Now Jacob sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to get directions to Goshen.

    Lifting you up as you journey...


Stop in for a chat! I love to hear what you have to say ~
