I am preparing for a trip. An overnight trip. This trip is going to be fun! I'll let you know all about it when I get back....
You should see my list of supplies to take. I've started a spread sheet list. I don't want to forget anything! But I probably won't take everything that's on my list.
I have two piles of stuff to take with me on this trip. In two different rooms. I have already started packing some of the stuff I feel I will need on this trip. I think I am going to have to reduce the stuff in those piles, so it will be manageable. And you can't blame the piles of stuff on me being a girl, because nothing in those piles is girly!
I have been doing some research for my upcoming overnight trip. I have searched various websites looking for information on what I will need to take with me, how risky my venture will be, what to do if something happens, how much fun I should have, etc.
Oh! Want to know where I am going? Camping (primitive!) and canoeing on the Black Water River in Milton, Florida! Looking forward to some fun with my Sunday school class!! And coming back with some good stories and great photos to share!
All of this planning and preparation are reminding me of the verse in II Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Just like preparations for my upcoming camping/canoeing trip, if I study and prepare myself in the word of God, I will be much better prepared to follow where He leads me. I will be much less likely to be embarrassed if I am prepared, whether it be my upcoming trip or spiritually!
