As I pack two suitcases with the goal of keeping them both under 50 pounds, I’m thinking of you. Five months ago I visited the United Kingdom to meet newborn twin grandbabies. I loved blogging while I was there, sharing with you what God was showing me during those busy days. Just like the Lord always travels with me, I wanted to travel with you.
When I spent those weeks with Hans and his British family (Katy, Nicholas, Evelyn and Thomas), I found that happy blog topics popped up everywhere. The only negative was the frying of my laptop, most likely because I hadn’t studied the outlet discrepancies very thoroughly and didn’t know the correct plug-in routine.
On this trip I’m leaving my new laptop at home, although I’ll be continuing to spend time with you each day. My plan is to post pictures instead of words (by way of Hans and Katy’s computer) in order to stay close to you while I’m away. Maybe I’ll be able to figure out how to add captions, or you might enjoy making up some of your own.
When I return to the USA, I’ll be eager to reconnect with each of you by way of the usual 500 daily words. Although our relationship is only in cyberspace, I sense a strong bond, thinking of you often during each day and praying for you faithfully.
Should you ever want to talk back to me, my son-in-law has put a “contact” button next to the “subscribe” button on this site. Those comments go directly to my email inbox, and I would be delighted to meet you there.
So, tomorrow Nelson (godfather of Nicholas), Klaus (godfather of Evelyn) and I (grandmother of all three) leave for northern England. What a joy to be traveling with two of our sons, to visit a third. And renewing my relationship with daughter-in-law Katy and our three grands is, well, absolutely grand!
So let’s hope each picture posted will be worth 1000 words. If nothing else, the blog will take a lot less time to read!
“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
