Leaving Soon

Well friends, I did it! I bought my ticket for London, England and will fly February 27th, Lord willing, to Gatwick airport to begin 8-9 days of reliving history.

I've dreamed of this for over 50 years and now it's coming to pass!

One of the highlights will be a trip from London to Olney to see the Cowper/Newton Museum. Of course John Newton wrote the famed hymn, Amazing Grace and William Cowper (pronounced "Cooper")wrote There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood, which is in my top 10 of all time favorite hymns.

Thanks for your prayers as I plan this trip. I'll be blogging throughout my travels to keep you up to date on what I'm experiencing. Hopefully you'll vicariously take the trip with me.

Stay posted!

    We will all be on the sidelines, all 15 of us and yes, even Brodie cheering you on!!

    Knowing you, you will meet all kinds of new friends on this trip..

    It will be so nice and I am just as excited for you as I was for Leo and Saija when they finally got their dream house and now you will be getting YOUR life dream!!....Love Terry
