Every Journey has a Beginning...

And this is mine....

Should be an interesting start to things. My flight looks...tight. As always, gotta make things interesting. Gonna be praying, hoping, and bartering my way onto this plane.

Good thing that I like airports right?

I can't say that I'm not nervous about this whole ordeal. But I'm really excited about it all as well. I guess I'm feeling my version of "anxiousness". 50% nervousness, 50% excited.

I'm anxious to go.

Especially when I look at what I'm going to be doing over the pond. Between schoolwork and being a Chaplain (I'm still not sure what they will look like), there will be a decent amount of things to keep me busy.

Well, no looking back now right? That's probably a good thing.

I can't get this Irish blessing out of my head, but I think that it's appropriate:

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back,
The sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hallow of his hand.

  1. Kurt - I am so excited for you to be experiencing what this next semester has in store for you. Soak it all up and keep your eyes as wide open as they will possibly go, because it will be over before you know it (cliche as it sounds...)

    I can't wait to live vicariously through you during this journey...write again soon!

    God bless you, brother.
