I spent 8 more hours on the road today. It was basically uneventful but there were two instances that caused me to pause and wonder and one instance that just sent me running!
The first instance was the one that sent me running. It was a routine (or so I thought) stop at a gas station. I had swiped my card, pressed “yes” for a receipt and then I saw them…yellow jackets! They were flying around the trash can by the pump. What in the world were yellow jackets doing at a gas station trash can??? Many of you know about my recent experience with my Uncle’s 37 stings and my one little one (that hurt BAD) and I did NOT want another one! So…I pressed cancel and drove to another pump.
The first instance that made me say “hmmmm” was when I requested that my GPS lead me to the nearest Wal-Mart on my route. When I arrived this is what I found…
Definitely NOT Wal-Mart!
Then, after I found the REAL Wal-Mart, I got back on the interstate where I happened to see this…
Now, I don’t know about you but to me that bares a striking resemblance to one of those nuclear blast mushroom clouds. I didn’t stop but I put the window down and took this while I was driving….just in case it was the real deal.
I’m in a hotel in Nebraska tonight. There’s been no news about a nuclear blast so I suppose all is well. 🙂 I am arriving at Pine Ridge tomorrow and I’ll probably hit the ground running so this may be it for a few days. I’ll post the ministry details as soon as I have a chance.
God bless you all and thank you for your prayers!
