Whirl Wind

Yesterday and today have been like a whirl wind. Yesterday it was the literal wind which seemed to never cease and gust to the point I had thoughts of the trailer being thrown over. Abba was gracious that we only had to drive an hour in this crosswind to make it to Deming, NM and

Second Lap

We were a little sad to pull away from Junction having spent more of the morning with Mr. Walt and his stories but we knew it was time to move on. He had suggested that we could make it as far as Van Horn so I called an RV park and made a reservation for

Resurrection Day

Dave and I debated when to leave Central Texas to head toward our destination and it seemed no way around it but to leave on Easter Sunday. We were thrilled that Jacob, Sarah, William, Harrison and Scarlett came for a visit on Sat. so we were glad we had not left earlier. We really didn’t

Counting Our Blessings

No one ever said life was easy, at least not all the time. It is Saturday, that day between crucifixion and resurrection. We often look back and try to imagine what Saturday would have felt like if Sunday had not yet occurred. It is sort of like when we are going through hard times and

Waiting

It’s not always easy to wait. We are waiting on the mud to dry to load up the trailer. We are waiting till Monday to see if we have indeed found the right vehicle. We are waiting on the promised upgrade for our room. It is important to remember that waiting can be frustrating or

Goodbyes don’t have to be sweet sorrow

His Dime

Yesterday I was cleaning in preparation of leaving the house we’d called home for two years. I was almost through with the master bedroom when I found a dime on the floor. I heard the Spirit say, ‘this one’s My dime.’ Now in case you don’t know what it means when you say, ‘my dime’
