~a trip to the Arizona desert, a work trip for my husband, a gift that I get to go, too.
~health. So many trips cancelled last year. A strange fear crept up that something would happen this time, too. It didn’t.
~old friends and new friends, sweet sweet fellowship!
~never ending supply of hot coffee where ever we went
~a red robin, decides to visit outside our balcony each day.
~time to walk long. Trails through boulders, my Love and I explore. So fun!
~Naps. 2 days in a row!
~our musician for the weekend, a man whose eyes do not work, but whose hands dance across piano keys and keyboard
~his sight gone, but joy radiates so clearly from him for all to see. Thank you God, for such clear, childlike joy
~his laugh, a bit gumpy, sounds just like the lion from the Wizard of Oz. I listen for it, for it brings a smile and makes me laugh gumpy, too.
~words of wisdom from a woman who is 104–“Risk more. Reflect more. Leave behind things that last.”
~dinner with Dr. Tony Campolo. What a man! He consults with God before speaking.
~my husbands dream fulfilled. Being able to thank him in person for the life changing influence he has had on his life.
~my Dee, my Jumping Tandem girl.
Her morning to speak… “The message is not about ourselves” “God says “‘Come with me! Jump with me! I GOT YOU.'” “He lives for the adventure. He is risky. He is Creative. He entrusts US with His Message.”
~again my Dee
, her morning greeting to me. She comes up from behind, wraps herself around my shoulders and whispers “my morning did not feel right without coming to say hello to you.” I take in her love, my heart warmed. Toasty love.
~this place of boulders. Finding such comfort within the boulders.
~lemon and mint for my water
~sunbathing by a pool in February. This Midwestern girl is not used to that!
~my husband takes the podium. He speaks, so articulate. Words important are communicated and heard. His preparations and prayers pay off.
~beauty inside reflects beauty outside.
~shapes of cacti. God’s art.
~just plain silly fun
~grandparents who take my kids for 5 days, their care is beyond. Priceless.
~video chatting with my little ones at the airport. Their longing to see us. So sweet.
