    I'm hoping to leave for Idaho tomorrow and will be on the road for three days. I always get anxious about the trip because I'm traveling 'solo', even though I know our Lord is with me. I have taped John 14:27 to the steering wheel to remind me to trust Him. I'm ok once I get on the road, but, boy, am I feeling it today!

    On the trip down here last fall, a car nearly ran me off the road, and I was concerned about getting hi-jacked as there were two cars traveling together and they had me boxed in. There was a third car that had come up behind me and stayed there. I didn't know if it was with the other two or not. It's possible that the one that almost ran me off the road was texting or otherwise distracted. He started moving into my lane when he was directly beside me, and just kept coming. I slammed on my brakes to avoid him. Then the second car pulled up along side me and stayed there. They slowed down (we'd been going 75 and were now at 65, still slowing). The two had already passed me once and then slowed down so I'd pass them. Kind of freaky. I was looking to see where I could go (off road), and when the other traffic on the road caught up, they took off.

    Yesterday a car (local) nearly ran into me on the street, but once again our Lord showed me that He will take care of me. 'Ordinarily' I wouldn't have been able to avoid getting hit when the car came out of a parking lot right into the front of my car. I swerved and when I looked back, the other car was sitting across both lanes. He should have clipped the back of my car, at the least.

    Anyway, please keep me in mind for a few days. Thanks!!!

    Here are the words of a song to carry you to Idaho and back

    EVERLASTING GOD
    Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your Presence?
    To the heavens, on the wings of the dawn?
    To the far side of the sea?
    To the depths, and into death itself?
    Even darkness is not darkness to You.

    Everywhere I go You are there,
    Filling all the earth and heav’n above.
    Lord, You walk before and behind me,
    I’m surrounded by Your steadfast love.
    Everywhere I go You are there,
    Your Eternal Presence goes before.
    You are beauty, You are wisdom,
    You are majesty, You are power,
    You are everlasting God and I am Yours!
    Alleluia!

    Search me O God, and know my heart;
    Know my heart and see if there be any sin in me,
    Know my thoughts and lead me in the way everlasting, everlasting!

    Everywhere I go You are there,
    Filling all the earth and heav’n above.
    Lord, You walk before and behind me,
    I’m surrounded by Your steadfast love.
    Everywhere I go You are there,
    Your Eternal Presence goes before.
    You are beauty, You are wisdom,
    You are majesty, You are power,
    You are everlasting God,
    You are everlasting God,
    You are everlasting God and I am Yours!
    You are beauty, You are wisdom,
    You are majesty, Everlasting God!

    And of course I will be lifting you before His Throne of mercy and grace.

    A long day, but good roads all the way to Ogden, UT. Tomorrow will be a short day! Last year I drove in snow storms all day on this leg. I like clear skies MUCH better! Thanks for your continuing prayer!

    Thank you all for your prayers! We pulled in early this afternoon in great shape! The roads were clear and the traffic was friendly! The house was all ready for us with neighbors turning up the heat and starting the water heater, etc. I checked the Internet and it was on - not supposed to be turned on until Wed., so they either got here early or forgot to turn it off when I left last year. Thanks to God for a safe trip!
