Total Miles Driven Today: 509
Total Miles Driven Trip: 1174  

Today was really about the scales again. I am used to driving the truck now.  It definitely is a job but I really love what I am doing and even more so who I am doing it for.  Our biggest concern was whether or not I am required to enter the weigh stations.  After consulting with a bunch of people I passed by a couple before coming into Louisiana.  One there, they let me know I'm good to go on by.   Speaking of going into Louisiana, you should see the Mississipi! It is so dry! Oh I snapped a few photos as we passed so here!   Tonight we stayed just north of Dallas in Flower Mound, Texas at the Cottonwood Arena.  This is where we will pick up the Sea-Doos.  The hosts are incredible and have such giving hearts toward the ministry.  Juan Carlos and I attempted to watch a movie before bed but that did not last long at all!   So there is this saying that everything is bigger in Texas.  Well I believe the sky definitely seems to have grown.  The roads feel wider and the hats are definitely bigger.  Some of the houses I saw were amazing and my hamburger at TGIFridays...Ok so it was normal but it felt huge.   OK good night.  Tomorrow we will leave late so...  

Today's QT:  Isaiah 29:13 "and the people said 'Because the people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips while their hearts are from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men."     What a horrible way to be characterized by the Word of God.  I'd like to read this objectively and feel no attachment to it. You know read it and condemn the Israelites and give the usual "I can't believe how they would turn from God" but I know these words describe me to a pinpoint accuracy.  I'm stuck right here on this verse.   I try not to be over zealous on self-condemnation but when a verse screams at you like this did to me...man.  He is #1 and no other. Not wife, not kids, not Frontline, not Brookwood, not ICC, not Word of Life, not football, not fun, not Cheerwine! Yet my passions continue to drift. I pray for forgiveness and single mindedness in passion.
