So Very Blessed

Once again a whole lot of life has been lived in the past few days. I got to spend almost a week in Montana with a dear, dear friend. She graciously allowed me to visit her while her family was trying to pack up and move, and in the midst of all the crazy that is her life right now, she spoiled me with treats and refreshed my spirit. It's not every friend who you can laugh with as easily as you can cry with, but God is so good and brought our lives together almost fourteen years ago. On this visit I got to know and spend some time with her beautiful little girl, and while I couldn't take all their burdens away, it was a privilege to be able to serve my dear friend and her family in a few small ways.

After some delay I made it to Colorado again and was able to spend my brother's birthday weekend with him. It was so special to be actually there, to meet more of his friends, and see snow! My brother is one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever met, and it was so wonderful to get to spend some more time with him. After having spent some time there, I can see why so many people fall in love with Colorado!

I'm just home for about two days before I head off on my last trip of this furlough; I'm going even farther north to Canada to see my third soul sister. In the midst of getting ready for that I am starting to pack and repack up my things for storage at my parents house. My time in the States is rapidly coming to a close and I know I won't be able to fit in everything I want to do, but I am determined to keep living each day to the full, and making every moment count.

Parting Shot: Going up Pike's Peak on the cog railway was an amazing experience; the views over the snow covered mountains were absolutely stunning. God is an awesome God!
