The Wind at Our Back

We left Kansas in contrary winds.

Ranging from 22-24 mph, the winds were coming at us, at the front and the side, as if to blow us over, and hold us back.

We soon learned it costs you more to go against contrary winds, but you have to go against them.

It was both hands on the wheel kind of day, and frustrating to watch both the miles per hour and miles per gallon drop down.

The closer we got to our destination, the better it got. The wind changed direction and the wind got behind us.

Suddenly, it was like we were being pushed. It was smooth sailing, all quiet, hardly any effort required.

There was a increase, and we picked up speed and miles per gallon. We couldn’t help but see the spiritual revelations in this experience.

When you are in the will of God, the Holy Spirit has your back. He is the wind at your back. You may have contrary circumstances for a moment, but it’s just a season.

Psalms 37:23 The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord and he delights in his way.

We would like to give a reminder that Gods plan for our lives, is the best and blessed life.

Jesus still speaks to contrary winds. They still obey. He still expect us to speak to the mountains and see them move.

There is a Irish Blessing or Prayer, we pray over you today, as you read it:

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the Son Shine warm upon your face until we meet again. May the Lord hold you in the palm of His Hand.

Just follow the Yellow Brick Road

Our first stop on our trip to Montana was in Paducah, Kentucky. We pushed a little bit, excited to get to the gateway of the west, so we didn’t get to visit Paducah. Got there late and left early.

Our next stop was Lawrence, Kansas near Kansas City, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. The two Kansas Cities are 5 minutes apart. Like twins, lol.

The KOA in Kansas City, Missouri was full, because the Royals are playing Houston Astro’s today on Fathers Day. So we stayed in Kansas.

We like to stay KOA because we know what to expect, we don’t need surprises, or poorly run campgrounds.

I always text our son, Donald to let him know where we are stopped for the night. When he found out we were in Kansas, he joked, “keep a eye out for the wizard.”

He didn’t know yet, we were parked on the Yellow Brick Road.

Happy Fathers Day!

God Bless America!

Living the Dream

We are leaving Okeechobee, Florida, for now. We may be back because RV Maps volunteers are here. The job coordinator graciously gave us a tour of the Real Life Children’s Ranch. They take in children who need a foster home. A wonderful ministry.

Okeechobee is an interesting place to visit. They have a big lake! Lol, and that’s not an exaggeration.

Lake Okeechobee is the largest natural freshwater lake in Florida! The eight largest freshwater lake in the United States. 730 square miles with average depth of 9 feet.

We went on a tour of the lake and watched fisherman and women catching fish, one after another. Many of the boats had up to fifty poles at a time. Again no exaggeration.

We were also told they had to impose a limit of 25 per day. This is the best time of the year to fish. But, if you come beware this is a very shallow lake and you can easily lose your way without a compass.

We were surprised to see a lot of ranches here and lots of cattle. Great farming here as well with very rich soil. We saw Sugar Cane, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage! All within a few miles from West Palm Beach.

The ocean at West Palm Beach is about 1 hr away and the beach is beautiful.

Plenty of places to stay in Okeechobee, RV Family. We stayed at Silver Palms RV Resort. Very Friendly folks from all over staying the summer here. Beautiful resort!Also KOA right across the street that has a golf course. Great visit!

Living the Dream!
