Sorry it’s been kinda quiet here…..

But it’s been that kind of week. The Christmas packages were wrapped and in the mail earlier than I have ever managed before –
Christmas boxes have been delivered to the USPS.  And it's not 12/22. :)
We’ve enjoyed a Christmas party with Lara and friends,

and we even checked out a possible new SOWER project, right here in Waco!

Wings for Christ – It’s a small organization that trains pilots for missionary service around the world. I don’t know if will work as a SOWER project, but it certainly was good to stop by to meet the folks and check it out!
Gary’s been busy getting the truck outfitted and ready to be towed. And man, that’s a big job!
First he had to install the tow plate –

which is a pretty important step, right? We wouldn’t want to become unhooked as we drove down the road! We did take it out for a “test tow” when we had to take Lizzie into town for an oil gauge fix, and everything worked great. Phew. Next up was getting the electrical all hooked up –

Lots of bits and pieces involved in that (not to mention having to run the wire from the front of the truck to the back lights!).

Happy to report he finished that up today. 🙂

Last night we went to the Baylor-Tennessee women’s basketball game. Baylor pretty much ran away with the game (76-53), but it was great to see the Lady Bears in action!

Let’s see….what else….
Oh, I got my minimalist Christmas decorations up – the double nativities since they are both very precious to me

along with some ornaments from years past

and some from the more recent past –

Keeping it simple – that’s a good plan when life is lived in 300 sq. feet. 🙂

So yes,  it’s been that kind of week. Even now, as I look back over the week and thumb through pictures of things we’ve done and what’s been accomplished, it all becomes so trivial in light of the tragedy that unfolded last Friday in Connecticut. Thankfully, when my heart is broken and I don’t even know how to put words into prayers, I have a High Priest who intercedes for me – and for them.
For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Romans 8:26-27.
And we continue to hold them close in our prayers……

  1. We are spending 2-2 1/2 months on the road and FL starting in Jan. Is there anything I should pack that you find you just cannot live without on the road? We have never lived in the trailer this long before. The longest was a month years ago. Just checking as I have a list made but I’m checking it twice and seeing if you have any additions. Love your pics and blog. I feel I’m right there with you guys as you travel. Merry Christmas!!

  2. It was good to see your letter and pray God continues to bless you both as you serve Him and others. Merry Christmas to you…from the Youngs!
