22 hours later

I'm here in South Hamilton, MA...finally.

I'm tired.

I'm not fully mentally alert.

My heart is full.

Everything is terribly unfamiliar.

I had to hold back tears at my 1st meal in MA because I realized I could no longer order sweet tea.

And I am already very aware that I am going to get to know my Jesus in ways never before imagined...

Love you siestas...I'll post more soon.

Hi Shelly -
I've been checking your blog and praying for you. I am so glad to know that you arrived safely.
I'm so sorry about the sweet tea - maybe you can just make yourself some. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love in Christ,
Lisa

Glad you are safe and sound in your new surroundings. I can send you a great recipe for sweet tea :) My mom makes the best ... better than chicfila even :) Can't wait to hear about what you are learning and how things are as you start this new journey in your life! Lots of prayers coming your way!

I have been checking for new word.
I am so glad you have arrived safely.
Think about Daniel and the three so young going into totally new surroundings so far away from what was familiar. I know you are not going into slavery--but you are leaving what you know and what makes you secure. God is going to take on this role in a new and exciting way for you. Don't forget your prayer time.
Praying for you.
I was talking about you with my pastor Saturday night.
You have not been forgotten.Thank God for blogdom.
We--your older sistas are here for you!We are praying! Go forth and be stretched!
Love ya girl

Shelly,
I am leading the Believing God study and it started on Wed. One of the main points that Beth speaks on is to "start believing so we can start receiving"
Well my siesta you have the believing and have stepped out into this journey with bold faith. God will be surrounding you with so many blessings because of your obedience!!
I can't wait to see what more He has in store for you!!
Much love,
Kim
