Road Trip

Hamp and I will be leaving in the morning to drive to Baltimore so he will finally have his truck there and won't have to keep renting a car. I'm still having serious adjustment issues trying to imagine living in a place I haven't seen yet with furniture in it that's been rented until we can get ours there. I'm hoping this trip will provide some much needed bonding and nesting time that only my female readers will fully understand and appreciate.

While having Hamp gone has taken some getting used to, I also think God has given me this calm before getting the house on the market, the holidays, and ultimately moving permanently. I don't like change, but I'm sure that just makes God smile as He's providing me with many ways to learn to trust Him through the very changes I don't like.

On a more colorful note, one thing that never changes is God's faithfulness and order, especially in His creation. It has been a beautiful fall here and I've had a couple of opportunities to capture some of that beauty with my camera. I'll leave you with some pictures to enjoy. The next entry will either be from Baltimore or somewhere close if we don't quite make it all the way driving tomorrow.

It has been a very pretty fall here this year. Guess the drought has been good for something! Hope you have a safe trip to Baltimore and will feel more comfortable once you have had a chance to "nest"...

Safe travel dear friend. Even you going for just a few days to your new home leaves an emptiness in me knowing you are making one more step to leaving us. Keep blogging, it keeps us connected. Give the kids my love. Janet

This is the first time I've read your blog and I went all the way through it. You are a good writer and a good photographer. Your fall pictures are beautiful! Having been through what you are about to experience, I want to encourage you to know that everything will be weird and scary at first, but then you meet friends that you know are a direct blessing from God. Have a great trip!

Have a safe & wonderful trip. May God bless you with peace in your heart when you see your new home! But, I can say I have mixed emotions...I'm excited for you both as you embark on God's new journey for you, but I'm not looking forward to my only sister being so far away.
