Amy has been a saint and has come over once again to help me go through things. Normally it is just her presence and her telling me to stop getting distracted that I get things done. Exactly what am I going to do without my Amy next year??? ;) Anyways, with Amy's help I created this giveaway pile...
Mainly just pants and socks left... Yea!
It's official, I am fixing to move back to the States.

In a few hours, Amy and I will be heading to Hong Kong for a long weekend. We got ourselves a nice hotel with swimming pool. We plan to go to Victoria Peak and Disneyland. A little shopping at H&M perhaps... and of course eat some good food... Hoping for some good milk...
Now this was a good idea...
Happy 25 Amy! We will do it big in Hong Kong!

Brad leaves tomorrow morning for the States.
It is the end of an era, ladies and gentlemen.
China will never be the same.
Will have a "Brad" posting when Amy and I get back.
There are 3 more weeks of good girl time. :)
Lots to still look forward to.
I am sad.
THINK about all of us this weekend.

It really was a fun and delicious meal!

"But shall we see him?" asked Susan.
"Why Daughter of Eve, that's what I brought you here for. I'm to lead you where you shall meet him," said Mr. Beaver.
"Is - is he a man?" asked Lucy.
"Aslan a man?" said Mr. Beaver sternly. "Certainly not. I tell you he is the King of the wood and the son of the great Emperor-beyond-the-sea. Don't you know who is the King of Beasts? Aslan ia a lion - the Lion, the great Lion."
"Ooh!" said Susan, "I'd thought he was a man. Is he - quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion."
"That you will, dearie, and make no mistake," said Mrs. Beaver; "if there's anyone who can appear before Aslan without their knees knocking, they're either braver than most or else just silly."
"Then he isn't safe?" asked Lucy.
"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver; "don't you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you."

The line turned out to be a word. Dayenu. What does that mean? I didn't know... Google it.
Dayenu is a Hebrew word that means "it would have been enough" or "it is sufficient." There is a Jewish song that goes through all of the blessing the Israelites had in the desert, exodus, etc. After each blessing, it repeats this word, dayenu.
When I first looked it up, I thought it was interesting. However, today in my quiet time I was thinking just how much I am like the Israelites. I go through those up and down phases of faith. I don't always put my trust in the Father. Currently, as I am thinking about my future I have not put trust in Him. Why not??!?! I have seen over and over how He protects, loves and leads to me to good things. He does something great and not five seconds later, I have forgotten and wonder why he has left me. I wrote out my own little version of the Dayenu (Jewish) song with the many ways Father has blessed me just this year. Hopefully, the next time I get to feeling sorry for myself, I will remember dayenu.
