Road Trip

Yes, that’s me on the far left, featured as George Washington. (I’ll explain that in a minute.)

But first things first:

I’m a sucker for a road trip.

Next week, our family is headed to the Northwoods of Minnesota. Next month, we’re going to Colorado. And in September, we’re headed to the Black Hills of western South Dakota — home of Mt. Rushmore.

I also enjoy my road trips out on the Information Superhighway. May I make a few “travel recommendations” for your weekend reading?

For anyone who wants to enrich their study of Scripture, take a road trip to see Monica. (Be sure to pack your pen and notebook.) She suggests bringing your study of Scripture to life by drawing what you “see.” I’m not an artist, but even I gave it a try. I started implementing Bible doodles into my study time this week.

For anyone who has ever doubted, may I suggest Patty’s courageous post.

For anyone who wonders how they’ll be remembered, cruise on over to read a post about eternal significance, written by one of my new faves: Jason.

For anyone in need of encouragement, take the path to visit gifted wordsmith Lyla. She reminds us we aren’t alone as we travel through life.

Explanation of my silly photo illustration: That’s me on the far left, as George Washington. My mom is Thomas Jefferson. My husband makes a great Theodore Roosevelt, and my dad is Abraham Lincoln. We dressed up as Mt. Rushmore for a themed New Year’s party a couple years ago. The theme: Famous couples. We went as a famous foursome. (I had shoe-polish stuck in my hair for two months afterward.)

Happy traveling, friends.

    Ahh, the joy of road trips! Enjoy every minute. Someday, we want to show our boys the beauty of the US as well. They know much more of other nations than the one they were born in!

    Hugs for your day,
    Sarah Dawn

    Shoot, you guys should get out more.

    Great picture, love the shoe polish.

    Thanks for the link — I've visited the others, and I don't deserve to be in their company. Humbled by that.
