Proverbs 3:5-6

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."

We headed out yesterday for our big trip up north. We were all packed and ready, juice boxes, granola bars, coloring books, blankets and 6 bags. Everything went so smoothly as we left out yesterday morning. We headed across 129 the Dragon, the road between NC and TN, something like 311 curves in 11 miles! The girls dread it because it makes them so sick. As we neared the end we told the girls that they had made it and that they would not have to go across it again on our trip! They were so excited! And then...about 2 hours into our trip we saw it...the oil leak! It wasn't just a small drip, it was a few fast drips. We hope to push through it and make it to our first stop, but as we were driving down 75N smoke started coming out the back really bad. At that point we pulled over and watched as oil was dripping ever so fast out on the side of the highway. Travis called it and said it would be better and safer for us to turn around and head back home so he could work on the van.
But that meant....we would have to cross the Dragon again! Thankfully the girls did so much better the second time around.
Today Travis is working on the van in hopes that it will be ready to push out again on Sunday so that we can at lest complete half of our planned trip up north.
Please continue to pray for us. We trust daily in Gods faithfulness and know that all things are in His almighty hands.
