the fact that i'm leaving for spain in less than two days is setting in, i think. a ton of different emotions just keep rushing through me. on one hand, i'm so ready to go, on the other, i'm "scared poopless" (to borrow a phrase from my friend jordan, who's going into the air force in two weeks). i'm more anxious and excited than anything. it's going to be weird, though, very weird. i think i'll have changed a lot when i get back.
"ensename, oh Senor, tu camino; andare en tu verdad; unifica mi corazon para que tema tu nombre. te dare gracias, Senor mi Dios, con todo mi corazon, y glorificare tu nombre para siempre. porque grande es tu misericordia para conmigo, y has librado mi alma de las profundidades del seol."
