February 17, 2009 - Living For Jesus is Fun

Chinatown, Portland, Oregon. Walking to the Greyhound bus depot from the Max - after leaving PDX...not long into this bus ride, Becky was wishing we'd spent the extra money and rented the car - and I was wishing the loud mouthed boy in the back would get laryngitis. As people left our bus, God blessed me and put that boy in the seat directly behind when he started making fun of the boy who HAD BEEN sitting there for being *scary* because he was *quiet* I took the opportunity to turn around and tell him what a delight it was to have the quiet boy behind us - because it was around 2 PM and Becky and I had been up since 8 AM the day before and really appreciated the quiet. Delightful, he softly replied, "oh," and was pretty much a delight to travel with thereafter. Phew. We napped a little on the bus, but man, we sure were trashed when we got home at 7:30 PM - after having landed at 7:10 AM :o) What a blessing it was to be able to take that trip to Oahu and back - and to be able to appreciate all of the little things we have at home - like our own beds, and familiar sights and landmarks, and most of all, our loving families that missed us while we were away! :)
