For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

Mommy’s Going Out of Town


You better watch out! You better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Mommy’s going out–of town!

I’m making my list, checking it twice
Making sure we have plenty of chicken and rice
Mommy’s going out–of town.

Who’ll make them do their homework?
Who knows when they’ll awake?
Who knows if they’ve been bad or good?
Why, their Dad for goodness’ sake!

You better watch out! You better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Mommy’s going out–of town!

I’m missing my family already, but looking forward to a great time of fellowship and sharing God’s Word with the women of Guilford Baptist Church in Sterling, VA. I’m so blessed to have a husband who is so unselfish, and who joyfully takes my load when I’m away. Add to that, two super responsible girls and a boy who takes seriously his role of helping Daddy take care of the family, and I swim in a sea of gratitude for the family the Lord has given me!

  1. Travel mercies to you. I hope your time away is full of fun and refreshment.

  2. You were a blessing to us! We praise God for his provision to us of you, and to your family while you were gone. Be prepared during mango season! You might have guests! 🙂
