So I made it! I'm here! It doesn't seem possible that it's really the end of October and I'm in North Carolina already. My Aunt and I started planning this trip before I was even done with school last spring! Oh how the time flies! hehe.
Both of my flights went really well. I flew from Grand Rapids to Cincinnati...where I had a 3 hour lay over, and then from Cincinnati to Greensboro, NC. Both of my flights were the little regional jets and I had to actually walk out onto the tarmac to get on the plane! The ONLY time I've ever done that was in Haiti, it was kind of funny! The second flight was really empty. My flying companion was very quiet and hardly made a sound. He was also the size of a dime haha :) There was a fly on the wall when I got on the plane next to me and he didn't hardly move the entire time. It was funny to me to think that the poor thing got on in Ohio and is going to get off in North Carolina and not know where he's at (yeah yeah I know flies don't actually have thought processes like that, lol but it was a fun thought to entertain lol).
This was the first time I had flown over the Appalachian Mountains and have actually been able to see them. Wow. They were breath-taking. They surely reminded me of how small we really are, and how silly it is to me that we, as tiny little humans, think that we "own" or can "dominate" this great big world. How can you see something like that, something so beautiful, and claim it as evolution? How can you see something so beautiful and not have it scream beautiful creator at you? Argh! I just don't get it. But I'm so thankful for the reminders that God has given us. The view was amazing, and kept me occupied throughout the entire flight!
I don't have any pictures of them, although I wish I did! My camera was in my checked bag (of course lol) oh well! Thank you for all of the prayers for safety and everything. I definitely felt them! I hope you are all having a great week!
