The Time I LOVE
I truly am a
"family time loving kind of girl".
I think TIME is one of my top love languages.
(along with words of affirmation)
Have you read that awesome book -
It's a great concept.
My time spent in Pennsylvania with my
daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter
A big bear hug from my granddaughter just before
I had to leave to travel back home.
I wish I could bottle these hugs up and take with me.
This trip was also taken
so that I could help them while they
packed up to move to their new home
2 hours further away
My son-in-law has been a Youth Pastor for
seven or eight years and felt called to take a
lead Pastor position in a new church. So although
we don't like that fact that they live even further away
from us, we are very happy for them and
the new ministry and adventure God has called them to.
Besides, you just can't argue with God about where,
what or why, when He decides to make changes. He
knows best. He understands my occasional
whining to Him about it though.
My grandson, the cool dude,
sporting his favorite sunglasses!
I also had a new adventure while
on the road to seeing their new home.
I drove through my first mountain tunnel!
(and many more after that)
I have really been sheltered here in Indiana. I didn't
even stop to think (duh!) that some places in America
have man-made, very long tunnels which can be
scary for a person like me with a little
bit of claustrophobia!
I was driving my own car behind my daughter.
I remember seeing the sign that said tunnel and thinking
it was a small tunnel where you could see the light
out of both ends at the same time, so I didn't
give it another thought UNTIL......
....I then began repeating the 23rd Psalm
and deep breathing
and even contemplated whether I should
get out of the car and run back to the opening
on the tiny sidewalk that I saw along side of the road.
Next thing I knew,
there was light at the end of the tunnel.

Of course not the view I saw
at the end, but isn't this one beautiful?
After that the other tunnels
were a real breeze for me since I knew
there was an ending and I learned to play my
music CD loud and clear while zooming through
and sang along, smiling.
Another hurdle overcome! Woo Hoo!
Actually the mountain view is so beautiful to me.
Pennsylvania has some gorgeous landscape....
and some gorgeous children.... (grin)
The cute box movers!
It was a busy but wonderful time. I came home tired
but a very good kind of tired.
Thank you my friends
for allowing me to share my loves with you today.
Have a wonderful weekend!
