Today is day 600 of our journey and I thought it was a good time to talk about all the lessons I have learned on this journey.
#1: Always, always, always look to the Lord for my strength! When I've wavered and become discouraged, it's because I've taken my eyes off of the Lord.
#2: Pray and read my Bible, all the time, but even more when I'm discouraged. This keeps me focused on the Lord.
#3: Be grateful for what we have and it is a lot: a home, food, jobs, health insurance, a wonderful church, great friends & family, and the list goes on and on.
#4: No matter what, as long as Tom & I have each other and rely on God, we can make it through anything.
#5: Never, never, never give up. Feeling like giving up? Refer back to #'s 1 & 2!
