What a Lovely Day!

Today we headed into London! Hurray! I woke up bright and early to start our day and make the 2 hour trek through traffic into the beautiful city of London. We spent the first half of the day in a seminar about our destiny and looking back and seeing God's hand working in our lives through our past experiences. Praise God for taking an active roll in my life!

Then, we got to explore the sights and sounds of the city. We saw The Windsor Castle (but we didn't see the Queen), walked around the shoppes, ate dinner (I had my first plate of fish and chips and boy was it scrumptious!) and then headed back to Harpenden. In a few days we'll actually be staying closer to Winslow so I can go back and try to buy something (everything is super expensivo here because the conversion rate is roughly $2 for every one pound...ouch!). I was surprised to see a McDonald's, Starbuck's, and H&M. Well...I actually shouldn't be too surprised to see these stores because they're everywhere! I definitely want to buy something at H&M London...how cool is that?!?

Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to be in this beautiful city. I'm reminded of all the things I learned as I studied English Literature in college and I get super excited to actually walk things out. Thank You for surprising me with added bonus to my outreach. Thank You for showing me how much You love me because You knew that I've always wanted to visit this city, go to The Globe Theatre, and watch my favorite Shakesperean play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. And now in just a few days I will be there! Thank You, God! You never cease to amaze me and I thank You so much for the amazing friends with whom I get to experience this with. You are a great God and I love You. Thank you!

Enjoy the pictures! And as you can tell...London makes me smile! =)
