Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? ~Psalm 139:7
No matter where we go in our lives, God goes with us. His desire is to keep us close to Him, known, treasured and loved at all times. Nothing drives this fact home to me more than the events on the recent multi-state trip Danny and I take in October. Everywhere we looked, every place we visited, presented gorgeous fall scenes like the photo above. Wow! God's artistry is breathtaking!
In my previous post, I couldn't be frank about our plans; it made Danny nervous to announce that we would be absent from our home for 16 long days. I'm sure you all understand that if any news leaked about the trip, our home's safety could be in jeopardy, as there are, unfortunately, any number of miscreants out there, more than eager to prey upon law-abiding citizens. Is there anyone else out there who is hoping for change in the political winds on November 8?
Danny and I depart Kennesaw on October 11 to embark on a multi-state tour to reconnect with family. Never before have we attempted to travel so far in one vacation. The round trip covered a whopping 1900 miles!
Our first stop is Knoxville, Tennessee, where we spend the afternoon and evening with my son, Daniel, and his lovely fiance, Heather. It is a real treat to reconnect with Daniel and to get better acquainted with our future daughter-in-law. Heather is one gem of a young lady, and I let her know, on no uncertain terms, how pleased we are that she accepted Daniel's proposal. What a delightful addition to our family she will be!
We've known from the beginning that neither Heather nor Daniel desires a large wedding; just a simple exchange of vows at the courthouse will do. Yet, as of October 11, no date has been set. So, imagine our complete surprise when Daniel calls the next week to announce they have registered for a marriage license, and will tie the knot on October 27th! Are we overjoyed? You better believe it!
And we know that through all their days together, God will go with them, blessing and keeping them in His love and grace.
