I’m back in Houston for a short stop-over on my way to a two week long vacation adventure. This morning, I dragged my groggy and sleep-deprived body through security check points, gates, walkways, and finally, the exit of Houston’s Hobby Airport. Two weeks of life changes and the associated stress left me feeling like I’d been hit by a truck. At least, I certainly wasn’t the angel my mom was eagerly anticipating as she picked me up from the airport. After having to endure a car ride home with me sulking and moping in the front seat, my mom made me take a nap. What a wonder 3 hours of sound sleep will do!

Me: Oh really, I must have missed it.
My Sister: Oh, ok…well, I have to go now.
Me: (laughs) ok…bye.
My Sister: (did she even say bye?….dial tone)

She’s attending the ASI Youth For Jesus evangelistic training program, which will be wrapping up this weekend. It’s been frustrating at times with her being so brief like this, but this morning I was able to see what God has been doing in her life over the little time she has spent in Louiville, Kentucky and those happiness tears females get when we get older….I caught ’em.  I opened an email with the subject line “ASI Starring Sherene” which a family friend had recorded from 3ABN, so here she is caught on camera.
