About Me

My photo
I grew up as an only child... but today I have a large family with 4 grown children, 7 grandchildren and #8 on the way! I spent 30 years in the IT industry. I am now on disability after suffering a stroke in February of '09 and hoping to make the best of my situation by traveling full time in an rv with my wife and my 6 year old granddaughter that we are raising.

One of the hardest things in life to do is wait.  We are not naturally creatures of patience.  Especially in today's world of instant gratification - waiting is a hard thing to do.  The Bible tells us that if we "Wait upon the Lord" our strength will be renewed, we will mount on wings as eagles.  But once again the Lord has directed me to Lamentations 3.  You know it is God talking to you when he keeps you in a specific book or verse in the Bible.  Lamentations 3 has come at me in several different ways over the last couple of weeks. Today, as I was thinking about timing, I was remembering the above verse, but as I did an internet search on scriptures about waiting, guess what popped up!  Lamentations 3:25, 26, "The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.  It is good that one should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord."  WOW!  Not just wait, but QUIETLY wait.  I take this to mean without grumbling! OUCH!

While in Tulsa this weekend visiting good friends, we thought how cool it would be to drive back in a new truck to pull our RV.  The truck we have will do the job, but it is getting old and needs a few things done to it.  So, we spent a lot of our time at dealerships looking and actually filling out paperwork for financing.  If we were to get it NOW, we could finance it and then pay it off when the house sells.  This really gave me a sick feeling, especially since this will be my last week at my job.  After praying about God's direction, we put our "excitement" emotions on the back burner and decided to not purchase a truck at this time.  Whewwwww.  What a relief.  No worries about how to make that payment!  BUT WE SURE DID SEE SOME PRETTY TRUCKS!

Bottom line is this:  When the time is right, the right truck and the right RV will be there for us at the right price.  It will be in God's time and not ours.  We will wait upon the Lord.
