I have been preparing for a trip for work - more e2 madness - and it has been driving me up the wall. It's all last minute, throw it at the wall something will stick kind of planning.
And for once, I can't really be upset with my employer for the way they handle things. This time it's the place I'm going that has made thing more complicated. But it has also taught me about what it means to let go of stuff. I had to get to the point where I said "God, you know about this. Not only do you know about it, but you also had to allow it to happen the way that it happened. So here it is. You take over."
That was hard for me to say cuz I can be a bit of a control freak. And I tend to take it out on people around me. But this trip (to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) has the potential to be really a cool time. And I have seen things come together all at once - but not until the last minute.
It reminded me of something a friend of mine said in his testimony about how God provided a job for him when he was let go during the Savings and Loan crisis. My friend said that God spoke to his heart and said "I am seldom early, but I am never late."
So there it is. I look forward to this trip. Look for postings from Rio. I am definitely going to try to catch some Brazilian music, in addition to the sports stuff and will post photos.
