Josh and I have often joked about how our family could have it's own reality tv show. When you spend so much of your life in the car, you find interesting ways to entertain yourselves (think: bizarre versions of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" and ridiculous games of "I'm Going To Grandma's House"). Not to mention all of the craziness that comes from a family of four living in 150 square feet. We spend a lot of time acting silly, laughing, and adventuring off the beaten path.
However, had a camera crew been following us around last week, I'm certain they all would have turned in their two weeks notice and went looking for greener pastures. Between Thursday the 4th and Tuesday the 8th, we traveled 1100 miles, loaded in and out of a hotel (cleaning up puke in the hotel that night), moved the trailer twice (involved a couple hours of work both for set up and tear down), spent four nights awake either throwing up or dealing with the one throwing up, slept very few hours, did dozens of loads of laundry, and dealt with dramatic ministry dilemmas!
Wednesday the sun came out, though! We were confident by then that the stomach bug had passed and that afternoon God answered some ministry prayers in big ways! By the time we made it to our church service Wednesday night we felt renewed and extra excited to praise God with brothers and sisters in Christ! We enjoyed a blessed night of worship that left us feeling refreshed and renewed!
Yesterday, we enjoyed a relaxing day off as a family!
It's amazing how in our moments of trial, life can feel like it's too much to bear and yet God's mercies are new every morning! Great is His faithfulness!
