I have often thought about my life as being divided into sections. Section 1 is: Growing Up (20 years). Section 2 would be: Getting Kids While Hubby is in the Air force (20 years). Section three is: Growing Up Those Kids and Working at the College (20 years). And Section four: Retirement Travel or Homeless and Jobless (20 months).

And now today we are leaving California to head back to Minnesota, the beginning of section five. What will this section be called? Where will this next journey lead us? Hopefully we're grown up, so we won't have to go through that again. I know for sure that we aren't getting any more kids (at least not that I can imagine at this point!) so we can check off a repeat of that part of our lives. There is no plan to go back to work at a full time job, so I don't see repeating that part either. We'll still travel whenever possible, but we won't be homeless, we'll have a home port, so that section will be different, too. So what will this next section be? What will be the title of these days of our lives?

I am so glad I can't see down this fork in the road to the events in the future. I don't want to know what God has in store for us. It may be abundant blessings or it may be numerous trials. Either way, it will be exactly what He has planned for us and it will be exactly what He has determined is right for us. But I am excited to experience what is in store for us, joy or sorrow, feast or famine, life or death......whatever it is, it will be what He wants us to experience.

Thank you dear heavenly Father for your constant love, care and protection through all the days of our lives. We pray that You will continue to be with us through the unknown days ahead. Wrap your loving arms around us and keep us safe on our journey, and carry us to our eternal home with You in heaven. Amen.
