Wish I had good news this morning and could tell you we were almost to Texas, but we are not.  When we arrived at the VW bug shop in Blacksburg yesterday morning, the wrong part had arrived for the Passat.  More damage was discovered from a tree we had hit several weeks ago... and more parts are being flown in from New Jersey. We could not even stay at the Marriott in Blacksburg because there was a game last night and all hotels were booked with reserve lists.  We ended up at the Marriott at the airport in Roanoke, but had to pay full price for the LAST ROOM available.

We did explore some gorgeous back country roads that Jamie would have loved to have painted. I took some images along the way.  The views were incredible. 

This morning we will go wait for the part to arrive at the dealership here in Roanoke, and we will drive it back to Blacksburg and pray even harder that God is willing to let this be the last piece to the equation of getting that baby Passat back on the road again and us safely back to Texas. Terry's declaration was a Challenger in the air....

We are off for a fast breakfast and then will pack up and check out on another wing and a prayer. We were suppose to be home today, but it will be Thursday most likely. There are still 1000 miles between us and home.  Out of underwear, but there are washers and dryers here at the hotel.  Things looked pretty desperate until that discovery.  Terry made the mistake of taking me to a Barnes and Noble and I bought six books. I figured I would need them. If the car is not repaired tomorrow... we will fly back to Dallas and see if our son or daughter can drive us half way home to meet Paul or Vicky.  Terry can fly back here once the car is fixed and drive it home. 

Patience is a virture and ours is calm despite our desire to be home.  God is our refuge along with Marriot and their hot tub.

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.”- Philippians 2:1-2
