Finally Friday!

This was close to the slowest week ever. I don't know why. I woke up on Tuesday and thought it was Wednesday. I woke up Wednesday and thought it was Thursday. I went to bed on Wednesday, fully anticipating that I would wake up on Friday. So I am glad that Friday has finally arrived! Log on at Living to Tell the Story and share your own Friday's Fave. Five!

1. Andrea and Addison reunited
My dear friend Andrea was reunited this week with her 22-year-old son that was abducted 19 years ago! Our wonderful church body is coming together and we are hoping to front a plane ticket for him to fly from California to central IN to meet the rest of his family for Thanksgiving! With tears in my eyes, I am so so SO happy for Andrea! Addison could have shut the door in his mom's face, but he has been warm and responsive! We are rejoicing and praising God for His goodness and faithfulness.

2. Channy's Visa
My beautiful friend Channy had an interview with the US Embassy in Cambodia on Wednesday and she was granted her American visa to visit the States with her husband Jeff. Channy wrote to me, "I knew that He dwelled in my mouth so when the Us embassy asked me some questions and i have ability answered to him quickly and no afraid..."
I am so excited for Channy, and even more excited for Jeff because I understand how eager he is to introduce Channy to his friends and family, and to his country. They were married in Cambodia last December, with his parents and brother in attendance.

3. My newest McConn discovery: pomegranite tea -- iced and shaken -- with vanilla syrup and lemonade. So good!

4. Toy Story 3
Yes, I know I'm 22. Yes, I know that I could be giving my attention to much worthier things. Yes, I know that there are much more exciting things to do on a Friday night. But Toy Story was my absolute favorite movie growing up. I remember saving my allowance and finally having enough to buy the Woody doll, and gradually collecting smaller versions of other characters.
When TS3 was in theatres earlier this summer, I was in Africa, then shortly after in Puerto Rico, two days later spent a week at camp. Tonight, I will be re-living my childhood.

5. Countdown to Cambodia
I leave for Cambodia in 38 days! THIRTY-EIGHT! I thought last week that it was still around 50-something days! That means my "25 days of Cambodia" will begin in only two weeks! I'm not sure how I will be celebrating that special occassion, but I'll think of something! :)

5. Weather
What a gorgeous week! Amen?

I've heard great things about Toy Story 3; I'll have to put it on my netflix queue. How amazing that mother and son are reunited! I can't imagine either the pain or the joy!

Well I can tell you I am more than 22 and me and 4 girlfriends went to Toy Story 3 and loved it. We laughed and we cried and I am totally buying it.

You're friend is just beautiful. How exciting that she is coming for a visit. And I'm getting excited for your visit there.
