the first post on the humongo road trip

Today begins Week Three of our six week road trip. We have already traveled about 2500 miles. The kids have slept on the floor, an air mattress, bunk beds, hotel bed and now at grandma's house. {one of several grandma's houses they will be sleeping in on this adventure}

Jason joins in on the fun tomorrow. I have been "on my own" with the kids for the past two weeks. Although, I must confess I put my Supermom title at risk and hired a wonderful and amazing young lady to come be my "helper" to travel with me these past two weeks. {She returns home tomorrow. Sniff. I will miss her!! And her help!} Her and I have both decided that I most definitely could not have done this trip alone. Three days in the car as we cross half the the Continental US of A would not have gone so smoothly without my darling sitter in the back seat.

God has graciously been with us every step/mile of the way. We are safe and healthy and happy. The kiddos continually adjust to every new situation. They are loving each new playmate that comes along. Child or grown up.

The trip has been bittersweet, full of wondrous hellos and sad good byes. Every week brings tearful good byes to people I love and miss terribly. And I have yet to hug my parents; the ones I miss the most. Already, this trip has brought Heaven to my heart and the promise of "no more tears" and of "no more goodbyes". Heaven will be a wonderful place. No roadtrips necessary.

revolutionary love

I have experienced revolutionary love. Love with no strings attached. Jesus Christ loves me and made a way for me to have a relationship with the One True God. God desires a relationship with you, too. If you have yet to experience this revolutionary love, please email me at jandjkeys@hotmail.com so I can share this amazing experience with you.
