I'm really not a cat person...

This is Bob. He was rescued from the woods after surviving multiple cougar attacks. Among his injuries were a broken pelvis and ribs, severe scarring, and extreme malnutrition. Now he is doing much better, but he wheezes a lot and is really too fat for his small frame. I love Bob.


More urgently: my flight leaves in 4 days and 6 hours. There is so very much that needs to happen between then and now, and I really don't know how it all will. I still need $750/month in pledges. I am praying that God provides that very very soon, because it is hard to pack and shop and run countless errands and say goodbye to people you love while still feeling the need to spend a lot of time emailing and calling people about money. On some level I know that if this is supposed to happen, then God is more than able to provide what I need however and whenever He wants to. Just remembering that is hard sometimes.

I said goodbye to my little sister tonight. It was quick and strange and didn't sink in, but I will miss her a lot.

I'm not a cat person either but I share my house with two...

I took Alexis to the airport Sunday (9/11/05 - cue the suspense music)... stopped by here to see if she has arrived...

This reminds me of sending men to the moon - when they orbited behind the moon they lost communications - Alexis has gone into a communications zone and I'm waiting for her to come round the other side.
