Some of my favorite memories of my mom are from discussions during car rides. I don't always remember where we were headed but we were always going somewhere and the travel time in the car is when we talked and laughed and solved world problems.
I miss my mom. I miss just having random conversations.
I keep thinking about the last six years traveling all over with my husband. We have made many memories in all these miles together. From day to day we didn't know where we would go next, but we knew we would go together.
I am going to miss working everyday, all day with him.
I was reading this morning in Genesis chapter 12 about God telling Abraham to "Go."
Abraham packed up all his family, workers, animals and belongings and "went."
He did not question.
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. (Genesis 12:1 ESV)
I am sure that his wife probably had many questions. I can just imagine if this had been between me and Bill. I would have so many questions.
But they went, the whole lot, including Lot. Lol
I just love that kind of obedience. I love this display of faith.
I would like to think that I have even a fraction of that.
Where does a faith like that come from?
Thank You, Lord, for these wonderful examples of faith and action. Lord, I pray that even if my curiosity makes me question that I will still trust and act in my faith.
And Lord, thank You so much for those you give me to help me get through this journey.
