Yesterday was our normal day of rest after traveling. As we had coffee outside our trailer, Billy from next door came by and we started talking. As Billy and I talked Linda went next door and talked with his wife. We then got together at their site and enjoyed the company.

We came back to the trailer and rested for the afternoon then went for a swim, met a second couple and fellowshipped, and then spent time in the hot tub where we met a third couple and had good fellowship. So, today, Linda resumes her rest time and tries to recuperate from both the travel time and the fellowship time.

We make our plans and the Lord orders our steps. He puts people in front of us who need our story, who need to hear about Linda and the Lord, or me and the Lord, or us and the Lord. Sometimes our rest time becomes His. Each of these couples needed to hear from us as we needed to hear from them. Each time of sharing was completely different, from the loss of children, to coping with six boys 20 years apart and 5 weddings in 8 months to imminent retirement and deciding to RV fulltime. We learn from each contact and grow with God’s lessons every day.
