BFS #104 - Never Leave Home Without It!

Memory Verse: Matthew 28: 20 - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.

Assignment: In the memory verse Jesus tells us that He will never leave us, not even at the end of the world. He assures us in this verse that He will be with us and that means through everything we go through in life. I thought it would be interesting to write about the things we would never leave home without. For some it might be baby needs, others it might be a gym bag and bottle of water, and for some it might be your Bible and a notepad or small journal, maybe even your son or daughters favorite blankie! I’d like for you to write about something that you would never leave home without.

Let's see, what don't I leave home without. There are a few things. I do not leave home wihtout my purse. When I forget that it always seems like there was something very important in there. Like for instance that will be the time that my van is totally without gas. (This has happened to me.)

This object is in my purse but it is important. I go to the library I lot and if I don't have my library card they will not let me check out a book. Which they all know me by name and some of them even know where I live but if I forget my wallet which has my library card and my license in it they will not let me check out a book. So this is very important.

Other than that that is all I really try to make sure I have. Now my kids on the other hand they pretty much bring our entire house with them whenever we leave. I am always trying to stop them from bringing stuff with us. They like to be prepared when we are going somewhere. They will bring their dolls, dolls clothing, usually some type of bag that this stuff goes in. Once in a while my oldest brings a book to read. They will take all of this to run into town for 10 minutes. So it tends to be a problem.

When it travel with my dh he is a little more prepared than I am. He always makes sure we have drinks for our trip and some type of snack to eat. I try to do this but it is not something I always make sure I have with me.

Have a great week everyone and God Bless.

You know, that library card thing is annoying. If they know you, it just seems so weird that they'd not have some other method to allow you to check out. I'm looking forward to the days of retina scans, then we won't have to take anything with us when we go. roflol.

My DH does the same thing. He has gotten me into the habit too. Blessings! ~ Nikki

Oh I remember those mini-packs of goodies the kids would bring, even if it was just to go out for 15 mins. Thankfully, those days have pretty much disappeared. Became a bit cluttery in the vehicle with all their stuff!
