Lord, I was born atravelin’ man


This weekend we headed north to Arkansas to see my family and celebrate the birthday of Sweet Miss Emery (my niece) and I don’t know what we did to deserve what we got … 800 miles and two tears. (As in TWO TEARS TOTAL!!!!)
There were no less than five women praying for us to have an easy trip. But wow. As we headed back with the fearless Daddy Bedgood at the wheel in torrential rain (read loud) Wilder slept for about four of the nearly seven hours. The rest of the time we kicked it in the backseat with a rotation of toys with his fav never leaving the carseat – Mickey of course. Around Ville Platte (the sight of our return road trip meltdown at Christmas) he got a little cranky (and can you blame him? No offense to any Ville Platters) but was diverted with a new toy and some Baby Einstein jams.
He did so well I’m considering switching his sound machine to rain instead of ocean.


About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
