Side Note: I am reminded of one of God’s promises to us: Delight thyself also in the Lord;
And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalms 37:4
One of my desires for probably the last 20 years since my Pops passed, is to take my Mom on a camping trip, like they use to take us when I was growing up. To be going to pick up my Mom in our motorhome, and taking her with us to the family reunion was a dream come true for me. We didn’t get up too early that morning because Mom does volunteer work at her church, and she wouldn’t be getting off until 2 o’clock that afternoon, so we decided to hang around at “Pedro’s” until about 10 a.m. We took the opportunity to go out and walk the campground, and pray for all of the residents there. We met a couple of people that were out, and shared our ministry with them. We find that a lot of people are surprised to hear about what we do; as one gentleman said, “we sure need more of that in this world”. Our prayer walks are a great time to meet people, and find out what their spiritual needs are. Even though we were not “thrilled” with the campground, we know that everywhere we go, God wants us to impact the Kingdom of God for His glory. We got back to our campsite, we built an altar, and prepared for our “later than usual” departure. We were only putting in about 150 miles that day, so our plan was to arrive at my Mom’s church just before she got off of work.
As we customarily do, we prayed over our travel day, and got back on I-95 North; we almost immediately crossed the state line, entering into North Carolina.
While we were out and about, we got word that Adriene’s Grandma had been in the hospital in Alaska, but had been released, and also her niece, Hanniah, was back in the hospital in Virginia. We have been praying for “complete healing” for her for some time and our prayers continued that evening as well. Hannah is 10 years old, and has been challenged by cancer, so we keep the "prayer wheels” turning for her healing.
We headed back to my Mom’s house after doing our running around. We relaxed for the evening while watching some TV, and preparing for our trip to “Indian Acres” in the morning. I was pretty excited, because my dream of traveling with Mom in “our motorhome” was coming to fruition.
