There's something about it. I'm unsure exactly what it is. It's a thing that stires the senses and encompasses every thought from the moment you hear of it, until the hour of your departure. The fantastic thing I'm speaking of, and won't be quiet about is road trips.

Surprise, I'm on one! Several months ago, my grandparents surprised us with a trip to the beach. Dauphin Island beach in Alabama (to be exact). We'll be there for a week with my grandparents, my aunt's family, and my uncle's family.

We left at around 1:30 (P.M.) and it is now 6:30 (P.M.). I have a cooler at my feet and a sister sleeping on my sholder, but I am perfectly content. It's not like I don't like being at home, I do. In fact, I love it! :) But going away, getting away, being away, and putting myself in "inforced stillness" (as my dad calls it) sounds absolutely fabulous at the time!

According to the GPS, we have around three hours and fifty minutes. Oh gracious! I totally forgot to say...we're on our way to Florida now. You're probably confused. Beach and Florida? Yes. Many of you know that we used to live in Florida, where my dad pastored quite a few years back. Anyways, they're having a sort of homecoming. So, we're driving down to Florida for about three and a half days, and then on to Alabama. Right now, we're in the middle of Georgia, somewhere near Macon, I believe. It's pretty desolate out here!

Good lands! It's already time for dinner! I'll try to write every day. I'm fairly possitive I'l have tons of time on my hands here to edit.

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life

    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
