"...for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose."
Philippians 2:12

  • Thankful.  Thankful. Thankful!  We feel overwhelmed by poured out love from so many friends and family.  It is jolting.
  • Our, "To Do List", is vanishing before our very eyes as we bit-by-bit annihilate it.
  • We've known God's sufficient grace at every twist and turn in this journey and especially the past 3 weeks.  He has used so many of you to encourage while wrapping up so many loose ends.  THANK YOU!
  • We journeyed to Omaha today with Jason's parents.  They very kindly provided a little Cocoa Key fun for our family to enjoy.  The dark slide with its unexpected twists and drop offs had us laughing and squealing.  It is a fitting way to forge ahead!
  • I'm blogging to Jason's deep papa voice reading once again to the kids - only this time from a hotel room.
  • Looking forward to a rich cup of artificial life tomorrow morning, properly named, coffee.
One last bonding moment.

On the road again.  Just can't wait to get on the road again.  :)
