Now It's Time To Say Good-Bye.........

Well, today is the Day. My flight leaves a little after lunch.

I'll be back home on June 9th.

I'll miss writing blog posts and stalking reading all of your blog posts as well. When I return home, I will have a lot of blog stalking catching up to do.

I found a quote by Erma Bombeck (I love her), and it made me laugh out loud. And don't be confused.....this will definitely probably happen to me.

"There is nothing more miserable in the world than to arrive in paradise and look like your passport photo."~Erma Bombeck

And speaking of looking like my passport photo, now that I am leaving, I'm a little afraid that I am going to be the biggest hillbilly Europe has ever seen.

I guess we'll see........

Well now its time to say goodbye to Amy and all her kin.
And she would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back June 9th to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of her hospitality
Hillbilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now,'hear?

Take care and God bless you all!

Isaiah 30:21
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."

It may be too late for you to read this, but I pray you have a wonderful, fun, memorable & safe trip...filled with the favor of God.
I always pray Prov. 3:4 when I get ready to travel. "So shalt thou find favour and good understanding (good success) in the sight of God and man."
Remember :( I'll be gone to church camp that week you get back so then I'll have a lot of catching up to do.
I'll be thinking of you and praying for you and your family while you're gone.

Kelley said...

Have an incredible trip Amy (like you need my permission or something,lol). Please take lots of good notes and pictures because there are many of us waiting to live the experience through you! Hey perhaps Shannon could keep up the blog while you are gone?

God bless.....

The Boyds Family said...

Great! Now I'll be singing that song all day long!!

You are going to have an amazing time - even if it is hillbilly style ;)

Chris and Wanda said...

Oh, Amy, I am so happy for you and our God is such a great big God who loves you and lavishes you with his joy; you are his delight and I am glad that he has given me the opportunity to know you and have you shine your light in my life.

May the God of heaven and earth bless your trip and may you hear his voice speaking behind you. He is moving the waters and you are floating right in his hand.

Tell Melissa that I hope she enjoys the trip as well and that you both have a wonderful time. I will miss you, but I will be watching the blog on June 10 from Kansas City!

Your forever friend, Wanda

Have fun and be blessed!

Tracey said...

You've probably already left...but I hope you have a safe journey, exciting adventures and look forward to returning home. God Bless.

Here's to slipping the passport photographer $20 to substitute a pic of Cindy Crawford instead.
Have a great time.

Sandra said...

For those who stopped by Amy's blog, this is her Mom. She's really homesick so say a prayer for her, but other than that, the scenery is awesome. I MISS HER SO MUCH I CAN'T STAND IT! :)
Sandra (Amy's Mom)

valerie said...

Thanks for the update.
I can't help but get on here every now and then to see if there's an update.
I will continue to keep her in my prayers. I know she misses everyone!
Tell her hello when you talk to her again.

Wanda said...
