I've been procrastinating on completing my missionary application. But I'm making myself sit down this afternoon and finish it all, including answering all the in-depth questions that make me think and also make me try to figure out tricky grammatical issues. Pray for me as I finish it up and then as Jim and I mail the forms in, that if this organization is God's will for us in Swaziland, that He'll continue to make the way clear.

Some days, I sure wish that this step of the journey was over and I was already in Swaziland rocking some fat, drooly babies; hugging some sweet, Swazi kids; and singing some joyful, siSwati songs.

But I know this time is necessary. I know we need these next two years to learn and grow in the areas God has planned for us. And I know I want to enjoy being with my teenage girls before they leave for college.

Why can't there be two of me?

And why do I procrastinate? I don't know. It seems to be the story of my life. Well....that, and my love for God, my family, my friends, and, of course, Swaziland.
