By the time you read this post this morning, I will be driving to my father’s house in Oregon with my three children. Driving to spend some precious time with my Dad who is in the middle of a grueling battle with Cancer. My dad who all my life was easily described as one of the toughest men a man has ever met. He is a man’s man. He is a determined man. God made him that way. Praise, God.
Hopefully, by the time you have read this, I am still being patient with my children who will have been in the car for far too long. Prayerfully, I will have been love to them all day no matter the circumstances. Prayerfully.
We all make journeys that are filled with trials. Joy and happiness can be found in the trials too. I have been trying to remind myself of this all week. My children are making memories that will travel with them all their lives. I am choosing to be love to them along the way. Sometimes, it has to be a choice, even when you have been in the car for too many hours.
Every Monday, I share something that inspires me on Pinterest. Something that keeps me looking towards the Father. Something that makes me stop and think about the Father’s love and all the blessings in my life, and I like to share them with you. I wrote the scriptures of this pin down on index cards and clipped them together on a binder ring. These verses of love will be riding shotgun, right next to my patience and smile. Hopefully, I will remember to pack them too.
Happy Monday, sweet friends. Don’t forget to be love along the way of your journey no matter the trial. Your legacy depends upon it.

she can laugh at the days to come.,” (Proverbs 31:25).
