Bound for Baltimore, God-willing
I have a United Airlines ticket to fly to Baltimore, Maryland tomorrow, home of the Orioles, Ravens and Hope for West Africa. It's also where Dr. Chris Isichei (founder and leader of the Faith Alive Hospital) is this week at Bill and Diane Blattner's home.
Notice that I didn't say, "I'm going to Baltimore tomorrow." I'm learning from James 4: 13-15. "Now listen, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, 'If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that.'"
God-willing, I will go to Baltimore tomorrow.
Little Chris update: all is well, praise God!!! So far, his recovery in intensive care is going well. He even was awake enough to greet his mommy on the phone and take some tea from his daddy. God-willing, he'll be back in his regular room with Daniel by the end of the week.
