Trip Preparations

Hi My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

     As preparations for my trip continue, the devil is busy trying to slow me down.  I never cease to be amazed at how quickly he disappears when I bow my head and simply say, "Lord. He is here and I need your help."  Then I relax in the knowledge that God is with me and the devil doesn't stand a chance.  Everything just falls into place and works out perfectly.  I feel truly blessed to be involved in this endeavor and in the preparations for doing God's work.
     Aside from that, I have amazing help from an earthly angel as well.  Eve is my constant companion as I make my preparations and the little extra time that sometimes cost me is worth more than anyone but a grandparent can imagine.   I will admit she can be quite dangerous with a hammer but God protects and loves us both.
     I have the beginning shelves and the paneling installed and now I'm looking for some carpet for the floor.  In trying to save money I decided to go with used carpet, maybe some that someone is replacing.  I was in the carpet cleaning business for so long I'm not even concerned with how it looks as I should be able to take care of that. If anyone knows someone who is replacing carpet, please let me know and I will come and get it.
    Let me take just a moment now if I can to make something very clear.  I know in my heart this is a trip and a mission God wants me to take.  I am going on this mission.  Many folks have tried to frighten me regarding what I may encounter on my trip.  I have so far heard warnings about car trouble, criminals, wild animals, illness, and most of all about being old and being alone on the road.  Rest assured I am not alone.  From Psalm 62, Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
     Please feel free to leave a comment below.  I would love to hear from you.
     My God bless you all and I love you.
