Today is the day I finally step onto the plane to begin my journey to Spain. As I lay in bed thinking of what this day holds, I become more excited - but also more nervous! In about 5 hours I will face my biggest fear of getting on plane - something I swore I would never do again after my last trip. While this is a scary thought, I know I cannot live life afraid. It is because of this that I decided to participate in this program anyway! I want to live a life full of adventure, fun, and love - not one of fear!! As I sat in church yesterday on Easter, the words of a song really struck home. "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone." I know that God will be by my side through this entire adventure, and while maybe not ALL my fear is gone, I can certainly live each day knowing this is exactly what I am supposed to be doing. Now it's time to go make sure I have everything packed and in it's place as I begin my adventure of a lifetime!!
