Auf wiedersehen

Today, the Lord willing, we all go to Portland by various routes. Tomorrow morning, the Lord willing, we all 8 fly to Virginia to my fine sister's for a week. Then Amy catches a ride to Bible school from there, and Emily stays an extra week for some aunt time.

The weather and road conditions these last couple of weeks compel me to say "the Lord willing" more than normal.

Hansie and Michael the neighbor will be taking care of things here.

I wish all of you a memorable Christmas, full of joy unspeakable, the peace that passes all understanding, faith--the evidence of things hoped for, and love--the greatest of these.

P.S. Oh my. That was the longest drive to Portland ever. 4 hours. Lots of packed icy snow in odd bumpy lines in the lanes, and a few extra bad spots made traffic back up for miles and miles. Let's hope the plane leaves tomorrow.


  1. Merry Christmas Dorca, For you and all your family. May you have peace and happiness

    Pierre who had his little Christmas miracle this year, and 2 Joyful kittens

  2. Four hours from Harrisburg to Portland? I spent four hours just on I-205 three years ago when it snowed and then iced. Hope you got to Virginia safely and had a Merry Christmas.

  3. You are certainly full of surprises.
