Day 14 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is AWAY.

I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.

We are far away from home. We are still on the cruise to the Bahamas. I can only imagine we are having the time of our life being away from all the problems.

Sail away, sail away I say!

But Monday is just around the corner. Reality hits the second we get off the boat. When we set foot on land, we will have a whole new set of challenges. We will put away all our fantasies that we can just leave our problems behind. It is all temporary anyway. We will be coming back to the shelter that God provided for us as we wait for His plan to unfold.

As we wait on the Lord, we tuck away His promises in our heart.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26

While we are away, Bill and I will pray. We do anyways, but we are making it our priority to “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them” (Proverbs 4:5).

P.S. Since I will be unavailable the entire cruise, I will respond to any comments when I return. I have pre-written the blogs for the week of October 11-16 to go along with Kate Motaung’s prompted word of the day, and they will be automatically sent on the corresponding day. I must complete the challenge!

They have three children each, making their lovely family a model of the brady bunch. Four of those children are adults and are successfully making responsible choices for their futures and two sons still at home.
