Packing woes2 !!

Oswald Chambers wrote this on his devotional..

". . . do not worry about your life . . . ." Don’t take the pressure of your provision upon yourself. It is not only wrong to worry, it is unbelief; worrying means we do not believe that God can look after the practical details of our lives, and it is never anything but those details that worry us.

Haha.. ok I will pack in peace :)

Packing woes!!

I will be traveling to Europe for a year and I'm worrying if I have packed what I need..

This feeling can be a spiritual dilemma.. what is important and what is unimportant.. what do I need and what I cant live without... what I don't want to spend for and what I can afford..

My departure from manila is June 11, at 1230am. The day of my birthday! A great day to start something new.

Flying to Jordan.. then to Sweden!

Take note.. I'm staying in one of the coldest countries in Europe.. another consideration to my packing woes.

I've started to pack the ff on zip lock bags:
10 t-shirts
10 pairs of socks
1 small mixer (beringer 502)
phone charger (nokia)
kitchie nadal cds (love letter)
2 pajamas
1 pair of slippers
1 pair of boots
fdd controller (recording equipment c/o beringer)
ear muff
2 nice hats
toiletries (shampoo, soaps, toothpaste, toothbrush)
3 pairs of jeans
2 nice dresses
2 sweaters
1 leather jacket
1 pair of rubber shoes

I dont want to be overwieght.. 20 kgs max!!
I dont want want my luggage to be heavy too :(

The pre-departure is as important as the travel, I believe one must be ready. I have been praying for this opportunity to travel for years and i need to be discerning of the good works God has prepared for me in advance in Europe. Pls pray for me too!
