At first we didn't know how close we were to KC, that is until we heard the planes overhead. We were camped at a beautiful place. The Redbuds were blooming, and the ponds looked nice. We didn't have to leave until 1 that afternoon so we were not in a hurry. The girls talked to the RV Ladies some. Many were of the grandmother type and they seemed to really enjoy the girls. Knowing we would be traveling we sent the little ones down to the play area and one of them took the camera and got these beautiful photos.
Really have to watch out for the tether ball as it likes noses.
Knowing this gentleman had been asking how I fed my children we took this as a sign Abba had provided for our evening Sabbath meal through them. We stopped at a McDonalds after turning east from Joplin. What a blessing to not have to worry about the evening meal after we stopped for the day. A great preparation day for our Sabbath. We prayed for their safety as we pulled away from the pump and are continuing to ask Father to bless them as they had blessed us.
The day was fast diminishing. Dark was coming fast. We prayed for a place to spend the weekend before visiting with John and Sarah. I stopped at a gas station and asked about camping places. They directed me to the state park about 12 miles away. They said there was a steep incline and to be careful. As it was getting dark I really didn't want to try the steep grade in the dark. So we pulled into a place about 3 miles from the state park. Almost 9 pm. The sun was setting and we talked with the owners about staying for at least 3 nights. It was a great beginning to our Sabbath rest. There is more to the story but we wouldn't know that until Monday. So, I guess I will try to not make you wait 3 days to hear the rest of the story. But you will have to wait until my next post.
