Fly away … yet again

Well … we’re at Brisbane airport waiting for our flight to the States: 13 hours+ to L.A., 4 hours layover, then to Cleveland via Chicago.

It’s the trip that sadly has been in the wind for some years now, as Dale’s Mom’s health has declined at first slowly then rapidly in the past months – she passed away peacefully on 9 April.

We’re heading over for the memorial service at the Roman Catholic Church in rural Garrettsville in N.E. Ohio on 7 May. Chance for Dale to catch up with a whole cast of rellies, many who she has not seen for decades.

The past few weeks have been so, so stressful – especially for Dale of course. Turned out mega NOT straightforward for Dale to get the necessary leave from her school, and of course we needed to pack all of downstairs stour church residence house in Oxley. We’re ‘over’ packing &unpacking let me tell you!

Until this past Saturday we were in a sense ‘homeless’ – no temporary accommodation linedup via insurer come 3 May when repairs start for at least 5 weeks on the house. Good news is we now have a house to move into – 3 bedrooms & compact but we’ll do fine, methinks .

All this time we have felt carried by love; God’s love especially shown through supportive friends and church folk. Or lads have done their bit too.

Though the flight is a long one,being still for those 13 hours may well prove a blessing. Might even surprise myself and catch a few hours sleep.
