I'm going to BELGIUM!

Oh yes I am!
Next week in fact!
This is scary and exciting all at the same time.

I am off to visit a friend I have only known online. She wants to get baptised and is having difficulty organising it in her particular church, so I'm going and we will find a river or even maybe the ocean and we will to the business! Heeheee!
We'll also do some sightseeing and taste chocolate! FUN FUN FUN!

I booked the flights this morning. This will be the first time I have ever flown alone. I'm not one of those peope who enjoys flying, it's not that i am afraid, but that it does not agree with my stomach. I usually close my eyes and try and concentrate on my breathing and get through that way. The beginning and end of a flight are the worst. The flight itself is just over an hour so I should be ok though.

Soooo, suggestions for a baptism gift?
And yes, I know about buying the jello! heeheeee. That has you all very confused right now, huh? That's a gift that my friend has asked for because she can't get decent jelly over there and asked me to bring some. NO PROBLEMO!
So, other than jello, any suggestions?


  1. A woman's study or devotional Bible would be a great gift, or you could make her a CD of your favorite praise and worship songs.

  2. I know your budget is tight ... I like the idea of a book. Or what about a cross necklace? That's what popped into my head, but it might not work.

  3. How wonderful! And the chocolate - no fair!! Send me some! LOL! That is really wonderful. Take plenty of photos to share.

  4. "Utmost for His Highness" is a wonderful daily read that is available in gift book form.

  5. Yahooo how exciting
    I dont like flying either
    is it possible for you to get some mediation that may help your tummy
    When I got baptised my sister gave me a cd of Steven Curtis Chapman I still remember her doing that maybe some nice christain music would be good???
    what a wonderful friend she has in you to go and do that with her

    A cross necklace is PERFECT.
