Back at Christmas time we mentioned how Aunt Tami and Uncle Rob gave us money for a treat on the road! We spent part of it yesterday when we enjoyed Dairy Queen, after a concert at a retirement home in White City. It was a nice time of refreshing afterwards, and we were able to share all of the stories of the conversations we had with the elderly.
â€œHow sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!â€ (Psalms 119:103)
The Redding conference was a blessing. The conference coordinator treated our family to burgers and fries from the famous In and Out Burger chain. That was the first time that we had In and Out Burgers, and they were great.
It was a highlight to be able to meet the homeschool father who has helped us so much by advising us of the California road conditions. We were also able to see some friends, whom we have known for a while, which was a special blessing.
The location for the conference was a tad unusual. It was held in a Christian college facility. Loading the books in took a little longer then usual simply because we were on the second floor, and we had to hand carry all of our materials. And because of the distance to tote our items, we didn’t do any music that night.
It was fascinating to see a scale model of the Tabernacle, which was on display in one of the rooms where the conference was held. We have just been reading about the Tabernacle in our family Bible time. We have discussed the different aspects of it, and amazingly the Lord provided a model for us to look at.
We had the privilege of parking in front of a family’s house, for the night. It was a perfect location to park and quiet. We were able to fill up with water, and we also had an electrical hookup too. The next morning we enjoyed playing with their little ones. The little two year old especially reminded me of Abigail.
John â€œThou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermoreâ€ (Psalms 16:11).
Yesterday was a beautiful drive through mountains as we traveled from Redding, California, to White City, Oregon. The Wednesday evening church service went well and I believe a report will be forthcoming. Today has been a quiet day: rest, exercise, email, work, school, catching up on blogging, etc.
“His foundation is in the holy mountains.” (Psalms 87:1)
