Traveling is not an easy task for people who are quite different from each other, especially if one of them (must I name names?! I prefer to protect my guilt!) tends towards testiness. I am so looking forward to this extra trip to visit my folks, a trip we never make in the summer; may I not spoil it by irritability over foolish things but seek to serve the Lord by serving those with whom I travel -- and especially this wonderful man who is putting off his own projects and sacrificing his comfort and preferences to make it possible. Gratefulness; may I learn to live in gratefulness.
