The Mr. and I have never driven to Florida without another generation in the car! It happened to be a wonderful two days for us.
The temperature rose 90 degrees in our travels, with the last 70 degrees being in the Sunshine State.
If you do the math it was still below freezing when we woke at the 1/2 way point, Calhoun, GA.
Needless to say, we tried not to complain, knowing our destination, but dang! We used "The Bridge" from Sirus radio to entertain ourselves. No repeats all day and we knew most of the words to every song.
The second day we listened to "Out Of The Depths" by Edgar Herrall, book on cd. He survived the sinking of the USS Indianapolis. It's filled with the mighty hand of God, turning everything to good, even the evil that is governments gone horribly awry. What could be more of a testament to our creator at work in our lives than; after 3 and 1/2 days floating with just a life vest in the middle of the ocean, a crate of 1/2 rotten potatoes floats within arm's length. A must read.
Day one, we spent unloading, Muskegon house dishes and decor, tax prep and bookwork, suitcases, hobby paints and sewing machine, (pins coming soon). Late in the afternoon, after my nap, I poured over some new recipes and headed out to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods in Sarasota!
It's somewhat sinful the amount of food we have at our fingertips in the first world. If the Third World is a cup of Ugali once a day what and where is the second world? Perhaps a crate of half rotten potatoes.
Verse of the day: "My God shall supply all your needs, according to his riches in glory." Philippians 4:19
Challenge of the day: No more complaining. Seriously, listen to everything you say ... positive or negative?
