My bags are packed and I am all set for a weeklong mission experience with our Sisters in Greenwood, Mississippi! Needless to say, I am very excited for this adventure.
Here is more information about where I am going: Greenwood, MS
This is where the others are going:
Regina: Two Rivers, Wisconsin
Sister Leslie: Cambridge, Ohio
Sister Regina Rose: Westpoint, Nebraska
I am taking the overnight train. Trains are my favorite mode of transportation. I should sleep well tonight, because I am bringing my Lions-Packers fleece blanket along, and I made sure to get less sleep last night. ;) For our New Years Eve celebration, we had a wonderful Holy Hour together in St. Mary's Chapel, followed by a social. Then a bunch of us watched Jane Eyre (1996).
It was fantastic! Neither Regina nor I have read the book or seen the movie before! It certainly had us at the edge of our seats as we waited to see how it turned out. We also paused it just on time to count down to the the New Year with Dick Clark!
I went to bed just at Wisconsin was welcoming the New Year. It's nice being in the Central timezone, because we get all the excitement and celebrations at 11pm, and we can retire by midnight...
All in all, it was a fun way to bring in 2012.
I hope that your 2012 is a year of health, happiness and growth in relationship with God!
