Throne Trip Tuesdays - We Zigged Instead of Zagged
Yesterday's road sign was not too far from the truth on this road trip. We had a general route and places to stay along the way. Landmarks we wanted to see. Yet, in the first few hours, we went right.....when we should have gone left. Fortunately, God already knew we didn't really have a clue and lead us on the path He designated before hand.
We were following a big loop and we ended up in the town that was to be our last stop on our very first day! ahaha. It was actually to our advantage. Go figure! The little motel was booked up for the weekend, as was other lodging, and we would not have had a place to rest our weary little heads. God knew!
And, an opportunity was presented to us that we would have totally missed. We floated on the Current River. Have any of you ever done that type of float trip? I'm not talking canoeing. I'm talking inner tubes. Sitting in the clear, cold water. It was so relaxing. Just the peaceful sound of the water, the singing birds, and us. We saw so much wildlife. Watching the turtles and fish as we passed over them was kinda comical. I'm not sure who was more startled by it. lol
Photos of the trip are posted on my picture blog: Shutter Clicks. Click HERE....or on the camera icon in the side bar to view some of the photos I took.
The next leg of our trip was not at all what we expected. It would also turn out to be the last leg of our trip. That seemed to be the theme of this trip. The unexpected. Our plans were not God's plans. Isn't it like that in our everyday lives too? It sure is in mine. I'm thankful God is in control and has my best interest at heart. Praise His glorious name.
Peace and Joy,
