Travel TiP: Laughter AND Prayer is good for the soul. Remember that the next time you visit someone in the hospital.
The two hour drive back to Sumter gave Vernon and I some 'cousin time' to walk down memory lane. As we drove along, something felt familiar. Then suddenly out of nowhere, a big sign on the right side of the highway caught my attention. "Josh Turner!"** I exclaimed. Vernon quickly asked, "Do you want me to pull over so you can take a picture?" Vernon has gotten to know me quite well since I moved to South Carolina seven years ago. Although we only get together a few times a year, he has learned to read my body language, especially when I pull out my iPhone to take a picture...a dead give-away.
Travel TiP: Take time to smell the roses and read the signs--and take pictures! It's the little things that mean a lot, and I thank Vernon for having the patience to pull over for me to click about ten shots of this sign. Yes, rich and famous people are born in small southern towns. And I feel that this sign was a smile from God, letting us know that the whole world is in His hands, especially our sweet cousin, Judy.
we understand that the entire universe
was formed by God's command,
that what we now see
did not come from anything that can be seen.
Hebrews 11:8-10 NLT
You may apply all above Travel TiPs to any state or country you visit.
I wish you oceans of blessings and smooth sailing for your Autumn days
** BTW: Quick story: The first time Jacquie came to visit me seven years ago (before she moved to Lexington), I accidentally took Highway 378 to Myrtle Beach, which takes twice as long as driving on I-20east...but hey, it was my first time driving to MB! Jacquie and I did see the Josh Turner sign, but that was before I had a smart phone, and I never thought I'd be traveling down that road again. But here's the proof! *smile*
