Reflections From Gate B7

Today is the day!

This is all so surreal…. I just said my goodbyes to my family and my wonderful boyfriend. Now I’m sitting at gate B7 waiting to board my flight to Atlanta where I will board another flight to LONDON! So crazy.

Just goes to show that absolutely nothing is impossible with God! The fact that this is even happening is a complete miracle and I am so very grateful. Glory to God! Through every little detail of every step of the way, He has been right there beside me working everything out.

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind – there were so many kinks during my visa application process and it took much longer than expected. But by the grace of God I received my visa in the mail last Wednesday and we booked my flight ASAP! So I’ll be arriving to the DTS in Harpenden a week late… But better late than never! And hey, it wouldn’t be me if I weren’t late, right? 😉

I, with Lucas’ help of course, somehow managed to stuff six months worth of essentials into one rolling duffel. Crazy, right!? Actually, it was pretty much all Lucas’ doing (what would I do without him!?).


As I’ve been preparing to leave these past few days, I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with love and support from so many people. All of the texts, Facebook messages, tweets and kind words have made my heart so happy. I am beyond blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people.

All in all, God is so good. Words cannot express my excitement over starting this new chapter of my life! And today is only page one 🙂
