It's been less than a stellar day
and we are eight days away from embarking on this journey

in fact this is the 3rd time tonight I have written this post

I am just tired
The emotional wear & tear of something far bigger than we could have ever imagined is just proving a tad bit overwhelming.

Frank has been prepping & packing the camper & cleaning out the sheds
And I feel somewhat useless
baby bug is clingy
I am doing laundry, changing diapers, putting kids down for naps, and to bed, and cooking and lots and lots of dishes...

but it doesn't feel like I am contributing

add to that.. the older kids are playing and acting...well... like kids.
I guess it's just that I expected them to HELP

and I was going through a box today and I came across a poster.

I would show you the picture but I can't get that to work either.

Romans 8:4-15
God's Spirit beckons.
There are things to do & places to go
This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid grave tending life. It's adventurously expectant greeting God with a childlike "hat's next papa?"

thinking we better hang it up somewhere inside this camper as a daily reminder/

  1. I love that poster from YS! I have it hung above my workspace as a reminder when things get difficult. He has plans for you and you have said yes! Don't let the enemy steal your joy and excitement and turn it into stress and fears! He's going to fill in all the gaps where your weaknesses exist and bless the road you and Frank do not even fully know! Papa's got this!
