Packing Up!

We are grateful for the Lord Jesus’ protection and care. We are grateful for all of our friends and family who have been praying for us. We are grateful for the love and concern many have expressed.

This morning has already been interesting. We woke up a little after 5:30, as there was a lot to do. After personal Bible/prayer, we began trying to pack personal belongings for the next two weeks. Eight people working on it. Trying to decide what is important to have and what can be left. And, folks? How does one pack without luggage? We could have brought some if we had known! For now, we are using plastic storage tubs and misc bags. The rental place sent someone out to pick Dad and John up so they could get the vehicles. A Wal-Mart run will be in order. We need some travel bags to pack our stuff into, cooler to bring food, etc.

We are heading to the river house after we get packed up. More later! Packing out will be a job as all the books and everything are coming!


Some people do have tote bags and backpacks, but not enough to pack all of one's belongings in.

"Which clothes do you think I should bring?"

Pausing for a picture.

“That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:10-11).

  1. If you can find a Goodwill store, it is a good place to find used luggage. I had to do that once when our family was in transition (military) and we ended up needing more luggage due to birthday and Christmas presents.

  2. I’m certain I’m not the only one of your followers who wishes they could help out in some way. I am in Texas so all I can offer right now is prayer.

  3. Echo the sentiments of Johnna – we are just a little bit further than Texas, but thankfully the LORD Jesus Christ is right there with you all. What a BIG job you have ahead of you, so much to re-organise, clothing, storing, accommodation, food & so on…. – wow – our hearts go out to you. What a stretch to do that all, so good to hear that you will have somewhere to stay for a few days, may the LORD God provide the other essentials each step of the way & as is His way He will probably go over all that you can hope for!!
