On the eve

Some thoughts on the eve of my trip East:

I'm leaving tomorrow morning as early as I can get on the road, hoping to make Ogallala, Nebraska, by tomorrow night.

I've checked the time zones and I'll still be in the Mountain time zone in Ogallala. I have a conference call scheduled in the afternoon; I'm not looking forward to having to pull over the car for the call, but that will be the safest thing to do.

The forecast, as of last night, was for rain most of this week -- basically it will be following me as I go East. Lovely.

I'm about a third of the way packed up right now. I'd like to get done in time to watch Monday Night Football with my husband this evening, so I'm not spending too much time on anything else (except cleaning the house, of course -- because it probably won't be cleaned very much while I'm away).

Okay. Next blog post from the road. Please know that I appreciate everyone's prayers for us. I have truly felt supported and lifted up! Include a prayer for my safety, please, this week. I'm not nervous, but it's a long drive when you're by yourself.

I'm not a good car traveller. I grew up flying everywhere (my dad was a pilot) so the thought of driving anywhere for four days straight is giving me a rash... Of course, now that I have to pay to fly we drive everywhere, too!

I will most definitely pray for your journey to be safe with good weather and time to talk with God.

Thanks, Christy! And thanks for reminding me that this will be prime time for prayer!
