On the Road Again... (posted by Charlotte)

"On the Road Again" seems to be our theme song right now. We have once again made the trek to Enterprise. Cavin will be speaking tomorrow at County Line Baptist Church in the morning service, and at First Baptist Pinckard which is near Dothan, Alabama tomorrow evening. It has been great getting to share with people about what God is doing in our lives. We will actually be speaking in four different states this month for four different weekends - Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. This trip we left the kids in Tennessee. It really makes traveling much calmer and easier!

We got in kind of late this evening, but it worked out that we still had time to get together with some good friends - Jeff and Jeanine Fields. We had a great time talking and laughing with them. Jeff is the Minister of Assimilation and Small Groups at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Enterprise. He also went with Cavin on the trip to Costa Rica last month. Jeff and Jeanine truly love the Lord and are faithfully serving Him. It was great to spend some time with them.

Tomorrow afternoon we are going to get together with some other great friends - Holly and Parrish Dalrymple, and their two children Jackson and Will. Holly and Parrish are the type people who will do anything for you, and are always there when you need them. The day we moved from Enterprise, we called them because we had filled up the U-Haul and had no where to put the rest of our stuff. As always, they were willing to help. They came to our house and helped us load up everything and have been keeping it for us in their shed. They have meant so much to us over the past several years.

Yesterday was a good day, but a sad one if you really think about it. I had another birthday. I can't believe I have been around now for 41 years! I still feel like I should be about 21! But Cavin helped ease the pain by taking me to lunch at my favorite restaurant - Jim 'N Nick's Barbecue. It was great! Then we went shopping and he picked out a new purse for me that I really like! Then last night we had a birthday meal with the family at home! I also got a lot of cards, phone calls, emails and facebook messages. It was nice to be remembered by so many friends and family! I am truly blessed!
