thank you

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your prayers!! Do I have the sweetest hubby or what to post that for me? I am doing so much better now! :) We head home tomorrow after a wonderful week here in Colorado (even with sickness). The kids did awesome skiing and it was a joy to experience it with each of them.

Yesterday we all skied together as a family, and it was just ONE of those days! It was gorgeous, the sun was shining, perfect snow, and I was just overwhelmed by God's goodness. I can't wait to get our referral, but in that moment, I was very content and thankful.

Glad you are feeling better and got to share a day with the family on the slopes. I go home on Sunday to celebrate our 17 year anniversary and charis's birthday on Monday. Maybe I should fast tomorrow in honor of a referral for the Alexander family! Praying for you!

I am glad you had a beautiful day with your family! There is nothing quite like a gorgeous mountain winter day to remind you of God's greatness!

Lori said...

Aren't those moments glorious!?!

What a blessing to be with your family and enjoy some beauty and fun with them - It will most likely be your last vacation/trip until you're on that big ole jet plan headed East to Africa!! :)

Safe travels - talk soon!

Just came to bug you for pictures, you've been home for at least several hours by now! ;) Just kidding! It feels so weird without Bethany around - I'm so excited, but I wish they weren't taking the side trek to Rome, the suspense is going to eat me up! I have serious problems!!!

Oh, I'm so glad you were feeling better enough to ski with the fam! I've been praying for you, my dear. Just checking in "in case" you had some news... Pismo's been awesome with Ricker. The boys are off doing loop-de-loops in a biplane right now, so I've got a little down time. I hope you all got home safe and sound, rested and well.
