Summer Road Trip

She's home! My daughter had a great time at camp. We could tell that she had lots of fun there because of her talking 'a-mile-a-minute' on the drive home telling us all about her camp adventures. I can tell you that the lump in my throat and the knot in my heart has now totally disappeared!

She had one sleep on her own bed before we had to hit the road for our summer road trip as a family. We weren't supposed to leave for this trip until Wednesday, July 11 but God had other plans for us.

Hubby has a client in Pennsylvania whose server conveniently decided to break down so we decided to leave earlier in order for hubby to restore this server. God has graciously provided some extra funds, through this server breaking down, for us to be able to enjoy more on this vacation. God is good!

Our 'little' detour took us through the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. I know that compared to the Canadian Rockies (we have yet to see them), the Poconos will seem like dwarfs. But compare them to the flat lands of Ontario and they are MAJESTIC! Throughout our drive so far, it's been amazing being able to point out to the children just how great a creator our God is. He is indeed the ultimate artist and designer!

How appropriate of God to detour us through the Poconos to experience His creation as our next stop is the brand-new Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. We are driving there as I write this blog entry. We can't wait to see what it has to offer. My hope is that the children will be able to see the Bible come alive in this museum; that the majesty of God will become even more real to them.

Majesty, worship His majesty;
Unto Jesus be all glory, honour and praise.
Majesty, Kingdom Authority;
Flow from His throne, unto His own, His anthem raise.

In the meantime, my daughter is still talking 'a-mile-a-minute' about camp while we drive. There are lots of opportunities for talking as we will be driving a lot of miles on this road trip! One thing that was obvious to us during her time away at camp was that it was really q-u-i-e-t at home! There are times during our drive that I am thankful for the dual-screen DVD player that we brought along for the quietness it can command while we are in our vehicle! :-)
