(This post is part of a Tale of Humility in our Honeymoon Saga. If you'd like to start at the beginning read this post and then this one.)Well the moment of truth had arrived. I don't exactly remember how I told my husband we may have to begin the first day of our honeymoon with shopping BEFORE we start our 7 hour drive to the beach....He is a very easy going guy, so there was no real ruckus. - Well, except for the pit of my stomach which was rumbling with something much heavier than butterflies as we walked to the car.
My wonderful husband helped me get to my big ol' suitcase buried under all our belongings... as you may well know if you're married there is a science to loading a vehicle... and while most gals would put their bags in easy to get to locations...for men it is much more about burying the huge, bulky items and placing items strategically in a geometric pattern...I guess my suitcase qualified as big and bulky...I thought I packed well...
I am positive I began thinking, 'Is this my reward for being humble and trusting God with my issues!! How perfect!'
James 4:10 "Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up!"
Looks like our Honeymoon was going to be an exhilarating road trip! Free of navigational systems...YEAAA!!! (Enter my happy dance!!!!)
After my husband digs for the parts and pieces and attempts for several minutes to fix it. I suggest we go grab our devotional book (and brand new make up for me) and worry with the GPs later. To which he responds well I guess it doesn't matter since we have navigation on our cells now... OH BOY!
Why did I insist on those phone upgrades before our wedding...Humbled. Again.
