ELMER IS BACK !!!
As you read this, John and Sarah are on their way to Florida with John's best friend and his wife. John's best friend is Bishop Eli's son. Bishop Eli and his wife were suppose to be going, but when his son found that John and Sarah were going, they wanted to go. So Bishop Eli gave him their tickets for the bus, so they could go. Eli called his parents and informed them who was coming as his son and daughter-in-law will be staying with Eli's parents. John and Sarah will have the place next door.
Bishop Eli and his wife booked on the bus for the same time we are going. So Bishop Eli and his wife will be staying with his parents and we will be staying next door. We look at it that our children should go now, as they won't be able to when they have children, which we hope is soon. Pinecraft allows children, but the expense for all to go would be more than they could handle just starting a family and all. Let them enjoy a trip to Florida while they can.
Eli and I were taking and we decided that we are much easier on our children than our parents were. Of course, our parents had more children than we do. Also, back when we were our children's age, the thought of going to Florida was for the older folks, not us young folks. Times sure have changed.
Right now, I am taking care of our farm and John's. Eli is taking care of his farm and his son's. We do have help from some of the people at church. Also, we are checking the houses to make sure everything is okay. Every couple of days, I will take a walk through the house, just to make sure. John and Sarah along with Eli's son and daughter in law should be back on February 27th or 28th.
We are leaving on the bus to Florida on February 23rd and will arrive on February 24th. The day we get there is the day before John, Sarah, Eli's son and his wife will be leaving - so we will have to spend one night with all of us there. We will work it out. Our bus leaves to return on March 25th, so we will arrive in Pennsylvania March 26th. From there we will get a bus back to New York State. So we should be home March 27th or 28th, Lord willing.
When we are all gone, people from our church will take care of our farms until our sons and daughters in laws get back. I know this must be very confusing for you. It is for me, but as usual Anna understands it all and will tell me to be where I should be when I should be.
I hope the young folks have a good time. We know that Eli's Mother and Step-Father will keep an eye on them for us. They won't rule them, but if something should happen, we will know. I guess as parents they are always children to us. It is hard to admit they are grown up.
Trust God's Wisdom,
I went over to Jean's to use her phone for this post and to charge my dead cell phone. Guess I caused some news between Albert and Olive. Read tomorrow's post.
