"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

I will heading off tomorrow morning to do a 5 hour each way one nighter road trip with my mum. We are heading off to see my brother in central Florida.

The reason for this trip is really centered around my nephew's child. Mum and I have never seen him. My nephew and family are driving down from Georgia the same day my mum and I arrive tomorrow. They will stay a week though. Have not seen my nephew in over ten years. My niece, huband and two children will also be there.

Now to top everything off...... my niece's daughter's birthday is tomorrow. The party is......you guessed it...... at my brother's house. Where we will be staying. So, right when mum and I arrive in the early afternoon tomorrow, we will be walking into a 6 year olds birthday party with 15 excited little ones scurrying and screaming about.

Sleep arrangements are a laugh in itself. I will be forced to "sleep," yeah right, out in the living room on the couch. Centrally located where everyone has to pass by. The couch is not a pull out sleeper. My mum will get a bedroom. My nephew, wife, and son will be in another bedroom. My brother and wife in their bedroom. My niece and family out in the den.

Last time I did, what I call a "one night stand" at my brothers, I was up all night. There was no way to sleep with so many people keeping you up at all hours. Because everyone kept different hours. I will be exhausted.

I am really doing this trip for my mum who agrees with doing a "one nighter." That is all we could take! She is 86 and at this point is still able to travel but tires easily.

Although I am trying to trust God in this situation and trying to be positive, at the same time I am not looking forward to this trip at all!

May I ask for your prayers for alertness and sustainment in my body and mind. Especially on Sonday when I drive mum and I back home. I could possibly be running on "Empty" physically and emotionally!

I have not been physically feeling the greatest and a long road trip and lack of sleep will be the furthest from my mind to want to do and encounter. I am trusting my Heavenly Daddy that I am going to feel well enough to travel and endure what lies ahead once we arrive.

Hey, I do not want to sound like I am complaining, but I need a place to vent some how. Thanks for listening.
