Proverbs 16:9
"The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."

After finding the perfect area of dirt by the trailer, my creation was about to begin. On my knees, I reached out across the dirt. With the side of my hand, I carefully scraped the roads. My rusty cars and trucks sat beside me waiting for their turn. I continued with my design and work until my imaginary world was complete.

My Dad loved to camp. Even more, he loved to drive. Never knowing what was ahead, I knew he held the wheel, so it didn't matter.

Spending hours playing with my cars in the dirt, I pretended. Until my Dad packed up our things, and was ready to move on, I was setting up, and enjoying camp where I was. 

We make plans, and build our lives where we are. Time passes, seasons change, and God moves us according to His plan. He directs our steps. Aren't we glad?

Making the most of every season He blesses us with, we don't know what's ahead, but we do know that He is holding the wheel, so it doesn't matter.

When Jedidah was little, he used to quote the "Blue Proverb." (It was underlined in blue ink). It goes, "There are many plans in a man's heart, but the Lord directs his paths." But when Jed was two yeras old and quoted it, it sounded like this: "Thess....ah....many pans in a man's haut, but it is the Laud who diwects his paffs." I will NEVER forgot that beautiful sound as long as live!

Jennifer, there's nothing like hearing our kids recite verses. I'm sure those memories will echo in our minds, and I love the thought of them holding onto those treasures as well. God is good!
Fluffy, if you want a glimpse of me when I was younger, take a glance in the mirror girl!
