The sky was dark and ominous, lightning in the distance, but still no rain.
As we traveled on, we came to close to Seymour where we saw horse & buggy caution signs. Last year when we saw the signs in various areas, we never saw a horse & buggy. Today was different. We saw several! One couple was heading down the shoulder of highway 60 ahead of us & Russ passed them. I hoped and prayed the horse would not get spooked from the bike, but it had blinders on and the man turned it's head toward the side of the road as he passed.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength. NIV
That's cool those verses are right next door to each other!
We arrived in Mountain Grove at 3:00 and easily found our Days Inn motel. As we unloaded and headed to the room, a kind lady drove up and said she saw us on the highway and when she saw Russ & the cross it brought tears to her eyes and the Lord told her to pull off and find that man. And sure enough, she did! Brooke and her sweet daughters, Taylor & Sophia, gave us a generous donation and words of encouragement. God always brings us blessings and encouragement when we need it! Thank you Brooke & girls, you blessed us!
Tonight I wish I could be in two places at one time. Back in Fremont, Nebraska, my classmates are celebrating our 35th class reunion tonight. (I must have graduated when I was 10!) I would have LOVED to have been there to see friends from LONG ago! I hope and pray they all have a GREAT time and I can go next time!
This evening we took a dip in the pool and headed to Pizza Hut for Russ' favorite: salad bar & Veggie Lover's pizza! The fellas look sleepy tonight, it's time to put my feet up and relax, too!
Thank you SO much for your prayers, we couldn't do it without you!
Russ & Carol
