I’m sorry about not having a column last week. I had been on a trip and then had some technical issues that were out of my control.
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. I know I did spending it with family and friends, missed those that were unable to make it. Events like this remind me of days spent at Barrett’s camp at Lake Mitchell. I sure do miss that place.
Most of this was supposed to be for last week’s column, but I’m going to include anyway. Mama and I went on a road trip, leaving early on Wednesday, June 22, and returned late Monday night, June 27. We covered 12 states in six days; that’s a lot of driving.
We didn’t originally plan on any particular place other than Tybee Island the first day. My youngest brother rented a house for his family, so we drove there to spend the night and visit with them. Great visit!
Then we left headed toward Myrtle Beach and beyond. After Myrtle Beach, we headed to Philadelphia. We stayed off the interstate mostly on the smaller highways. It was interesting to say the least how my GPS would take us when you had checked no highways, no tolls.
Mama suggested since we were so close let’s drive into New York. Well, you just don’t drive into NYC and then back out. Between traffic, one-way streets and lanes that suddenly turn into turning lanes, it took a while even with my GPS. It couldn’t keep up with all the changes.
However, we were finally successful and headed back out through the tunnel. We then drove across Pennsylvania, tip end of West Virginia, into Ohio. Pennsylvania and Ohio had some of the prettiest towns and land.
Also, all the streets were so very clean and decorated for the holidays. Red, white and blue decorations, as well as flags at almost every house and on the streets in the towns. Beautiful country. So, then we headed home, but best of all was spending the time with my mama and letting her check some things off her bucket list and mine, too.
Providence Baptist will have Vacation Bible School beginning Sunday, July 24, and finishing on Thursday, July 28, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Any other churches in the area, let me know and I’ll include a notice of the date and time of their VBS.
The scripture I wanted to share this week is Psalm 73:26, “My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
There has been so much happening lately that is negative and just bad, but God is always there to give us the strength to survive. I thank God every day for allowing me that day, as a blessing that you never know when it will end so enjoy it while you can.
Also, your loved ones, family and friends; enjoy them while you can. I’m not meaning to sound morbid, just as you get older you realize even more that you are not promised tomorrows. So, enjoy life!
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
