At sundown he arrived at a good place to set up camp and stopped there for the night. Jacob found a stone to rest his head against and lay down to sleep. (Genesis 28:11 NLT)

Three weeks from tomorrow the "Great Adventure" begins. Stephanie and I are taking 4 of our grandchildren out west. We have been blessed with a new travel trailer and will be camping across the west for two weeks. We will travel through South Dakota to Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills, then to North Dakota to watch our oldest grandson perform at the Medora Musical, then on through Montana to Yellowstone. On the way home we will travel through the Grand Tetons, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and home. I am excited to see the months of planning get close.

Camping is an amazing pastime. It's a blessing from God. Stephanie and I have been camping on summer vacation for many years. We have slept on the ground with nothing more than a rock for a pillow. We graduated to a small pop-up camper and now we have a 34 foot camper ready to travel west with our grandkids. Spending time seeing God's wonders, spending time around a campfire, cooking over an open fire, hiking the mountains, and just relaxing, is a real blessing from God.

Thank You Lord for blessing me with a great family. Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to travel this great country with some of the loves of my life. I begin praying right now to bless this trip with evidence of your greatness. May we all realize this creation is a gift from you. May our trip be filled with joy, peace, and laughter with you in the center. Praise God for your wonderful love, grace, and mercy. Amen!
