It was 5:50am and I was up before the alarm. Evie was up shortly after and Shawn continued to sleep soundly on our air mattress. The light was peaking in through the blinds and the world was telling us it was a new day. A new day for our new adventure.
Today is the day we MOVE to Kentucky.
We have been staying with Shawn't parents for 4 years to the day and am thankful for their support and encouragement. God does so many things for us and we don't even realize it.
Thank you to all of our friends and family that have helped nurture, prepare and support us for this day. It is so hard to say good-bye so see-you-later is my adopted terminology. God bless you all!
Our journey today will take us to Oostburg Wisconsin and then early Monday we continue on to our new home and life in Wilmore, Kentucky. We look forward to the 4th of July celebration that is waiting for us - $0.15 hot dogs and ice cream. How is that for a welcome home party!
We won't have internet access at home, but we will try to update as soon as we can.
Here is the reading from a daily bible study The Upper Room. It is from Saturday, July 1st. For some reason the e-mail for the 2nd has not posted to our account. Strange? or not.
Matthew 6:25-34 (NRSV)
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you--you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these
