Just 1 more day, sir....
Well, it's time to admit defeat. We've been going like gangbusters for the past several days since we were supposed to leave this morning. Even with my wonderful sister and parents coming up and helping yesterday (which gave me a huge boost!) it's just not looking so good, but we feel our peace of mind is worth it. There's just too many loose ends. It feels weird to have told everyone we're leaving today, only to still be here until tomorrow! But we did sleep in the camper last night, and I have to say it was the best night sleep I've had in DAYS!! Woohoo! I just asked everyone else and they said they slept well, too. So hopefully that bodes well for our tight quarters. :-) Speaking of tight quarters, I have about a 4 square foot area on the floor in the house with the remaining stuff I want to stuff the camper with. I'm having this imaginary conversation with God that sounds much like a line from the movie The Princess Bride. I say, "Do you think it will work?" And He says, "It will take a miracle"! So, I'm asking for a miracle, but preparing mentally for it not to happen because I it may mean I really just don't need all that stuff! Tim's already voted the bin of gift bags I wanted to take off the island, so we'll see how the rest of it goes! Please pray we finish strong and well so we can start fresh and peaceful.

Good luck and have a blast! I'll be thinking about you guys, as will many others. Take care.

Jodie - if you are quoting the "Princess Bride" then you're going to be ok! Our family is praying for you and your peace of mind.

Hi Tim & Jodie! It has been a long time since we have seen each other. I am so proud of you both and all your accomplishments. How exciting what you are doing. My prayers and thoughts go with you on your adventure. How awesome to have such a close walk with the Lord and to trust in His will for your lives.
