"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
– Gilda Radner
That quote is so perfect for Steve and I right now. We have gone through so many changes in the last couple of years: retirement, selling our primary residence, giving away all of our personal possessions, being on the road and moving every week, and for me, being in school and preparing for a new career in ministry. We have no idea where God is calling us, but we are ready and willing to go where He sends.
This week's blog is not going to be long as I was in Chicago for school and Steve stayed in San Diego with our son Stevie and his wife, Aime. While in Chicago, however, I got to spend the week with our son Terry, his girlfriend Jill and their dog, Rooney. It was a blessed time for me as we do not get to see Terry and Jill often. They are moving to North Carolina soon so please keep them in your prayers.
I am now back in San Diego and hanging with Stevie and Aime too. My mother-in-law, Connie, is flying in on Monday and we are then headed to Los Angeles to visit her brother Frank and his wife Kiki. We will be attending Dr. David Jeremiah's church for Easter service and I am super excited as I am a huge fan of his ministry. Friday our oldest grandson, Jeremiah, will be flying in and joining us for a week too. So, you can imagine that it will be a busy week with family and Easter and all, but I am looking forward to another couple of weeks with familiar faces.
God has blessed us so tremendously with this trip. Two couples in this campground that we are staying at in San Diego stopped by yesterday to chat and ask about being a full-time traveler and it is in discussing our lifestyle that our blessing really hits home for me. But while I am grateful, I really do miss my family and friends so very much. Skype is nice, but it just doesn't replace a real hug. Especially from the grandkids!
Take care peeps and have a great week. For those of you in the Midwest, I am sorry that you are getting more snow this week. I am so grateful that I will not be in Chicago when it hits. Whew!!!!
