Just pulled into Dillons in Wichita. Stopping here at the pharmacy to see my younger sister and will spend the night with her. Aili and I drove here to meet my Mom, older sister, Brooklan, and my nephews. Excited to see Brooklan (and everyone else, too, of course)!! :) Had a beautiful drive. At the start of the drive, I was wondering if there was a way to avoid tolls or just a different way to go. As I checked out options I saw that we could take highway 50 across, avoiding tolls. I thought about this, but wasn't thrilled about this option because I'm not a big fan of only 2 lane highways; I grew up in a small town, but still right along Interstate 70.--I just don't like having to be behind a slow car or trying to pass them when you see another getting closer and closer to you on their side of the road. It raises my blood pressure!! :/ Even though I was thinking this, something just told me to take it...as my Dad used to say when we were young, let's take some back roads so we can 'see some country.' :) So I did. I was looking forward to 'seeing some country' bc this is the way I am able to soak up some sun, my Sunshine.' :) Well...the way was parted for me. From the start of the drive in Emporia to about an hour later in Newton, I didn't have to deal with one car going west.--I saw tons of cars going eastbound and only a couple going west, but both of them turned off the road before I reached them, not affecting me at all. I know it's Kansas with not tons of traffic, but this has never happened to me before...and like I said, there were tons of cars going the other way!! I was able to enjoy a beautiful ride. So peaceful. Seeing God's glorious, beautiful creation. Feeling my precious daughter. Thank you Lord Jesus. Love it! Now I will go inside to see my baby sister and start to enjoy the rest of our wonderful weekend.
Enjoy your weekend friends. Enjoy the sunshine...and Let Your Light Shine, too. :)
