|We live close to the arrow and our destination is|
marked with an A. About a 3 hour drive.
Two other reasons for travelling companions. Firstly I'm driving into unknown territory. I need a navigator! My husband has carefully checked the route, printed out instructions (using Google maps) etc. But I still cannot hold that much information in my head (including a number of Japanese characters). Second reason is that it makes the journey more fun. The retreat gets extended both ends by the fellowship you enjoy in the car. What a great way to start and finish a retreat!
So, we'll see how it goes. Hopefully we won't get lost. I do have GPS capability on my iPhone, and David's put our journey on the phone just in case: so it should be fine!
So now I face two days without:
- boys (and that implies conflict, homework, piano practise, cooking, micromanaging etc.)
- husband :-(
- internet (yay!)
And two days with:
- lots of fellowship
- lots of English worship and conversation
- time to myself
Oh, I'm looking forward to it. I've left a post for you to enjoy tomorrow, but I'll see you when I get back on Friday.
