Booked Tickets


It’s ticket booking season and I am in the process of trying to finalise a trip to Bangkok in March using miles and a trip to the States using company money. OF COURSE it’s not easy! I should have bought my one ticket last week, when it was a price I could afford! I’m trying for open jaw tickets this summer (ICN – SEA then after a week SEA – ATL and return ATL – ICN on 1 August!) and I am finishing a trip to come home to….. MY FRIEND ERIKA! She’s flying in from Wuhan the same day that the Brennemans and I fly back from our Thailand EARCOS trip.  The joy in thinking I will be sad leaving the airport, but that I will be back the same day to pick up my dear friend makes it so I can hardly sleep! And my sister is hopefully *fingers crossed* coming to visit me too! The last time I saw her properly was on my layover and before that, in England. I am thinking of throwing a weekend trip to Seoul in for my sister, but I don’t think she’s interested in the Costco run that I would want to make. 🙂 

This TCK heart is glad for ticket booking season. I have an assignment that my 2nd graders are working on right now, and part of it included brainstorming the names of favourite amusement parks. Our list included parks in over five countries (Malaysia, USA, Japan, UAE, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore). It made me want to go on a trip….. HOW’S THAT!?! for an international school. 🙂 

How fitting is it then, that in the smack dab center of ticket booking season, all the verses I’ve been reading lately have had to do with waiting on the Lord???!? Hopefully it’s waiting in an airport gate, getting ready to board somewhere grand on my adventure with God and not waiting like stuck in a traffic jam due to inclement winter weather. I’ll let you know when I find out myself.

About CRIL

Here I am in an attempt to find healing, hope, truth, pain, beauty... here I stand with my arms open wide... I'm not settling for what I am... instead I am searching for what I am meant to become when all that is reflected through me is Him and His Glory... I am confident that the path He has set before me is both sorrow *and* joy... it is not up to me to determine which is which... (written by me when I was an undergrad... still true today)
