Right now we're reading through Psalm 119. This is the longest chapter in the Bible - it has 176 verses!! And most of them are about delighting, following, obeying, learning, the Word of God - His statutes, and His rules.
Today, most people may not even see this post as they are traveling over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house for Thanksgiving.
This morning as I was reading about God's rules - for some reason I started gearing up for the car rules we'll have today as we travel to Texas.
stay on your side of the car
stay in your seat belt
we'll take turns with movie choices
no hitting or yelling
.....you know the drill....
I thought about all the fun methods of entertainment my children can enjoy on this 6 hour drive and traveled back in time to the ways my sister & I enjoyed our Thanksgiving travels.
The year was 1970 something...
and instead of the the comfortable mini-van with movies and games my sister & I made a make believe world out of the back of a station wagon.
When we would go on long trips (longer than 30 minutes) my parents would put a mattress in the back and we would fill it with dolls, barbies, and games like these:
There were no required seat belts in those days! Can you imagine?! And strangely enough... I never remember flying into the front seat!
Strangely enough though...
the car and the games of 1970 may have looked very different from today - but the rules remain the same! And today... I hope my children will not only follow them - but delight in them as well!
What's your favorite memory of traveling with your family?
How did you travel and what did you do to pass the time?
If you're here from iFellowship... WELCOME!
I hope you grab a cup of your favorite beverage
and hang out with me a while!
Leave me a comment, so I'll know you came by
