Now don’t get me wrong … I am a Young Earth Creationist and believe that each day of Creation was a literal 24 hour period. However, about a week before leaving on major road trips, I begin to wish God had made the days a little longer. Even with all the planning, there never seems to be enough time to get everything done. Get all the fluids changed in the vehicle to hopefully make it road worthy – Get all the repairs that NEED repairing on the home done (the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics never takes a rest!) – Get the next draft of the Kids Think and Believe newsletter done – Get some more writing done (which is like pulling teeth for me) – Get the artwork for Kids newsletter started or finished – Get the suitcases packed – Get the books loaded – Kiss all the kids and grandkids goodbye – I know there is more … but I won’t remember what until we get out on the road. Don’t be misled … I love this ministry … it just the getting ready that wears on me (and Marilyn, too). I praise the Lord this is His ministry and He is the one in control – but I really could use longer days at times!
