Well, I am settling in tonight, I have my pajamas on and it’s only 5:20pm. I am taking a deep breath.
Plans have changed.
I learned early this morning that there is political unrest in the region of India that I was going to be traveling to next week. They are expecting government officials to strike, and protests. The police are being called up to respond with force if necessary. One article said that some were planning to demonstrate with a fast-to-the- death if they don’t get their way. Anyway, our Compassion staff in India said it will not be safe to travel to the region while this is going on, so the trip has been cancelled. We are trying to reschedule it for later in the year.
I admit, I am a little dissapointed. My travel clothes are laying out ready to be packed and all the shoes for kids are in bags ready for delivery. I have some gifts for some sponsored children that won’t get there this month.
But God has other plans and I am just going to trust Him in that.
My husband and I will now have more time home together, and I will be able to attend Isabel’s’ orchestra concert that I would have missed. Also, we have learned that a Portland News Channel will be calling to interview Isabel about the shoes going to Haiti (which is both crazy and exciting), so I figure it’s all good….
I will make some curry chicken this week though because I think it’s necessary. I might even drink some Chai tea.
It’s hard when plans change, but I am reminded that my plans are not always God’s plans…so I am going to live in that.
