Passenger Post #3- One Day at a Time

I try not too look too far ahead on our deputation journey, otherwise, I get more than a little stressed out by our jam-packed schedule and the magnitude of miles between this meeting and that.

It drives my mom a little crazy when she is trying to keep up with where we are and what we are doing, and, really, it drove me a little crazy in the beginning too. I used to constantly ask Paul where we were going to be, when we would be home, when we would be seeing family, how many hours we would be in the car, etc. Come to think of it, that probably drove him a little crazy, too!

It has taken some time, but I’ve now gotten quite accustomed to going with the flow a little more. I always say, “All I ask if that you tell me when to be ready and how many days to pack for.” I’ve come to find that what the Bible says is true (imagine that!). As we seek to follow and honor him as we travel on deputation, tomorrow always takes care of itself!

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof (Matthew 6:34).

Passenger Post #2- The Hero

I like riding in the passenger seat and taking care of Jo as we ride along, but on trips where we drive through the night, I love the challenge of staying awake and alert behind the wheel while my family sleeps. I’m typically one of those super helpless women who needs my husband to open every jar and fill my gas tank, but sometimes it’s fun to be the hero, and this is about the only way I can!

I love pulling into the driveway of our destination and having my husband sleepily whisper, “You’re my hero.” I climb the stairs to the bedroom in a zombie-like state, but I fall asleep with a smile on my face and happiness in my heart. Sometimes it’s nice to be the hero of the man who’s mine!

Passenger Post #1- Happy All the Time

I’m going to begin drafting short posts from my phone while riding in the car in an attempt to keep my blog more up to date! I strongly dislike typing on my phone, so don’t expect too much out of these! 

Jolynn loves listening to children’s Bible songs in the car, and I love it, too! Granted, I’m a little tired of “Happy All the Time” at this moment, but it’s her favorite and, other than her futile attempts at singing, keeps her quiet, so mommy will just have to deal with it!

These songs are so simple, but they have the ability to set a foundation for learning the Word for Jo. And for me, they remind me of the little things involved in serving God that I so often forget. Like this little gem found in Philippians 4:4:

Rejoice in the Lord alway: [and] again I say, Rejoice.
