May 2nd week 2010. Funny we never know what tomorrow holds. Till we see for ourselves, I still had access to one of my wife's accounts. We had a house fire in 05 and our accounts went from joint to separate, as did everything else....in time!
I had a check coming in 2 days it came in 4. I paid a bill with her account and i thought i better tell my wife....ahh I'll tell her when my check comes. She saw it in 3 days, i paid her back in 4. She was devastated, I had never done anything like that she said. I said yeah.
She had a meeting with our Pastor and his wife, he asked,does he still have keys to the house? Yes. Have him turn them over to you and tell him.
My wife said ...You gotta leave for 2 weeks give me all the keys and I"ll give you 2 days to go. I thought about it and i said ok but all my equipment is in the garage (detached) i will need the key and opener. She said fine.
The Holy Spirit had been whispering a verse in my ear for about a month and a half frequently I thought hmmm he's never done this before. Hosea 2:14,15
Shoulder bag and time to go...So i really didn't want to go cause I knew 3 possibilities lay ahead 1. I will go and never come back. 2. I will go and come back 2 weeks. 3. I will go and something will happen.
I stayed in the garage 3 nights....told my son. This was the hardest thing i ever had to do. Didn't want to go. So Holy Spirit said (1King 19:11,12) you know you should go. I said ok.
So began my journey as i set out with shoulder bag in hand a 47 year old man not sure how much money I had. My tranny went out in my work van 3 weeks before so i sold it as is. So i began walking.......a road...traveled...alone....
