Yesterday we took a trip to the river!
Granted our river is only 3 blocks away by foot path
and one mile by car~
But it was the first time I had left our home in 28 days.
It felt wonderful!
Our cleaning lady was here so we grabbed my devotional basket
and headed out to the van for a short trip to the river park
where we drove in under a tree,
cracked the windows
took in the fresh air
and enjoyed the view of the river.
For at least 15 years whenever we would travel I would
take along with me my basket.
My handwoven basket holds my devotional books, a Bible,
a couple of tablets and pens and pencils.
It was made by a tribe that lives up in the mountains of Baguio
in The Philippines.
We spent 2 yrs living there.
I have had this basket for over 30 years
and carried it with me in the car for over 15,
The rest of the time it sits in my living room~
It is a companion so to speak~
It holds things most dear to me
It holds memories I cherish.
I have hope and dreams for the days ahead
when I can pack it up and travel once again.
For now I am just thankful I was able to take a trip to the river!
