Not Equal

I’ve been in this situation before – away from a computer on vacation. The iPhone I carry is NOT equal to even a small laptop much less my marvelous desktop with comfortable keyboard. However, the desktop is much too bulky to carry, and on this vacation the laptop is simply over-the-top, too. We are taking our first vacation in more than three years and it’s going to be a long one.

During the week before vacation, we’ve had company and we've had a great time simply visiting, running around (hitting quilt shops in McKinney, Denton, Weatherford - and wishing Decatur had one, too!) and generally not spending time at a desk. I was able to get a few words down, but on vacation, those may be fewer.

You may arrive here and read the same thing for several days straight.  Thus, you – my dear readers – may come to believe that 1) I’m not reading my Bible; 2) I’m not thinking about you.

Perish both thoughts!!  See in the graphic, above the ‘Phone’ icon? It says Bible apps – more than one of them. Never – not even when there isn’t phone connections – without a Bible to read, a commentary to research, a devotional thought available. Next to the Bible Apps icon you’ll find an e-Sword icon, a recent addition to the iPhone Bible app family. I like it well enough to use it first!

Yes, I’ll be thinking of you – I may even get in a small post or two along the way. I will not, however, be able to edit/format them correctly – so some may appear as odd in sight as they do in thought. If one does get posted, at least the mobile version of my blog still allows for Sharing, so you’ll see a post on Google+ or Facebook. Most likely these will not be posted daily – and there won’t be the copied/pasted scripture references, just references. Please take time to look them up yourself, OK?

This trip is going to be a huge test for us. We’ll be leaving Thursday morning. Today is one of Beloved Husband’s plasmapheresis treatments, which is very tiring. He should be able to sleep through the Texas panhandle without missing much. We’ll have wonderful friends with us and be able to stop often along the way, for this will be a long, long journey. Please keep us in your prayers for safe travel and continued health.

When posts are made these coming weeks, they will most likely be accompanied by snapshots of our journey. Please feel free to comment with suggestions or corrections or even directions! We’re headed across the Texas panhandle through Colorado into Wyoming to Yellowstone. Then we’ll head west toward South Dakota before stopping at Mount Rushmore, then back through Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and home again/home again, jiggity jog.

Thank you for your patience, for returning to read and I promise to be back on schedule by the end of June. Until then, may I suggest reading the book of 1 John?

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. (1 John 1:3-4 KJV)

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
