This week will be a very busy one leading up to what will be a whirlwind of a weekend! It will begin on Friday night with Hope's birthday party here at our house....she is turning 7! Can you believe it? I will then leave on the tour bus and travel through the night to Liberty University in Lynchburg to attend my niece, Lindsey's, graduation. After the ceremony and hopefully lunch, we will drive a little over an hour to the Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va. for one of the PASS South races that Jake and Deanna's car will be running in. After the race, we will drive through the night to get back home for Sunday morning services and Mother's Day lunch. THEN, we will leave around 6:30pm for the airport to catch a plane to ISRAEL! I am really, really looking forward to going back. If you will remember, it was this week one year ago that we were there for three days and received word that we needed to go back to the U.S. because my Daddy was not doing well. We got a flight that night and arrived just in time to have a good but brief visit with him just before he slipped into a coma and died the next day. Israel will be a bittersweet time of remembrance.
