Journey to Cincinnati

Wow, just wow... We, Robby and I, are on the road to Cincinnati, OH via bus.  As the bus rolled out of the bus station and Wichita fades from view... I wondered, will I ever see you again city of my childhood?  I know most likely I will, but it will never be long term liver in this city.  We left with little warning as we had to get out before the next round of ice storms... We actually planned to leave last week, but could not pull it off.  It most likely will be a long journey... it was standing room only on the bus between Wichita to Kansas City.  It was about as packed as we headed out to St. Louis too.  Cincinnati and marriage here we come!

Didean is No More...

Didean will have to close her doors before she ever officially opened.  *La sigh*  And we only hosted 3 travellers, not counting Robby or me... prior to closing!  Why might you ask, because Jo and my jobs are both no more.  Her husband works as does Robby, but their limited janitorial work does not come close to paying the bills.
*Cries* And all this is while Robby is in Tennessee still!  What to do? What to do?!  What to do?!?

Maybe this means it is time to begin the road to Robby and my journey-task.... is Dine Bikeyah calling...
Some of our family in Tennessee has offered to give us a place to stay, but there is no chance we will do that before we get married... so then... We must move our wedding day up.  I have the dress... the rest... that is up to Him.  ^_^  The open road is calling, and at last I can go forward!

Dine Bikeyah Calling?

 Robby called his good friend and mentor, Dino, today to tell him about our engagement...
What a surprise that was...
Little did I know Robby's strong ties with the Navajo... I mean, he is an answer to prayer that he has a heart for Native America... but the Navajo?  Daddy, this is too good to be true!

Come to find out ever since Robby was lead to the Lord by a Navajo man in 1996, Rob has had a heart to go out to Dine Bikeyah to serve as a missionary...
That is 3 years before God called me to Dine Bikeyah in 1999...
Both of us had given up on the dream, our journey-tasks.  The how and when of getting there neither of us are sure of.  God has a good since of humor waiting till the day AFTER we get engaged to share this with us... Who, but God, knows how this journey will end???

Robby took me to the Wichita Historical Museum yesterday afternoon,  I knew something was up as we had talked of marriage for a while now... When we got up the Victorian parlor, he sat me down on a seat and got down on one knee... and ask if I would be his wife... I said yes!  Then I surprised him too... and had him sit down... I had been carrying around a ring for him for a while, just waiting for him to ask me... lol.  We both have engagement rings...  He is going to Tennessee for thanksgiving... We have so much plans to make before next May!

Winds of Change

"A task journey, this is to what I am called.
Always restless as flows the celtic blood,
Always seeking that which I am to do.
Never sure of where the wind will blow,
Always knowing with You I will go.

My journey is my own,
Yet another You have sent,
For me to journey with.
Two restless Celtic souls,
With stories to be told.

Father, You and You alone,
Know what these journeys hold,
And what the journey-task it is,
So to you I cling, in these darkened days.
As I travel on Thy path."

Robby is to be more than just a friend...

"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
Hebrews 13:2 (ESV) 

Today marks a momentous day for me... I have bought a building to become our haven for travelers and at risk young adults... our "Didean" (Irish for safe haven or shelter).  

Robby just came in on a bus to serve as a the grounds keeper for Didean, and the Hurd family will be moving in July 4th weekend.  This is good, as work will only alow me to be at Didean on weekends and days off.  What joy is mine!  What blessings are ours!  Now we can aid other travellers on their journeys....
  Below are our plans for the house!


The Chapel is made up of two large rooms operated by large Victorian double doors.  It is in this room most of the after-school activities and classes will take place as well as the weekly subculture worship service. 

The Parlor
The is set off just to the side of the Chapel and serves as a library, study, and tv room.  It is a place for hanging out together.  It is the gateway to the bathroom.  ^_~

The Kitchen in what was once the parlor room of Didean.  It is here that all the snacks and goodies for the gatherings are made.  It also serves as the staff dinning room.

Grounds Keepers Bedroom
The Grounds Keeper's Bedroom  sits in the back of Didean in the old kitchen.  It will be a dark, comforting room perfect for a nights rest, and set far apart from the traveller gal's room upstairs.  It also will be the and is the entrance to both the backyard/parking area and the basement. 
The Upstairs
The Upstairs will house my room (with extra bunks for other traveller gals), and the rooms for the host family, the Hurds.  It also has a half bath.
