Yeah! We made it to MI.
I hadn’t realized just how negative I’ve been lately. God prompted me several times on this trip to think a bit more positively.
I heard a strange noise on the passenger side of the van before we left and I was terribly nervous. I think the last time I attempted a trip to MI the transmission went out on the van. My brother-in-law looked it over and found that it was just a clip that the kids had undone. Simple to fix! Praise the Lord.
My darling children put safety pins in my CD player and we had some trouble getting the sound for our DVD player to work. Oh, THANK YOU, Lord!! for being able to bypass that problem.
The first part of the trip was quite rainy and gloomy. The temptation was to grouch and complain, but as we were passing through yet another set of cones and construction area I noticed the lack of construction workers and figured that things would have been progressing much slower if it wasn’t raining.
I stopped for gas and flinched at the 2.80/gal (I know, it could be worse), but during the time that we took all the kids into the bathroom the price dropped!! How cool was that!?!!
And, of course, we arrived safe and sound–a precious blessing from the Lord.
God is good.
