We are in our "empty nest" season of life, where life is very full! And in the midst of this full life of family (six grown kids, and now, ten grandkids!), and work/ministry (still working full-time with Cru) ... we have learned to put a high priority on taking advantage of the vacation time that we are allotted.
Whenever we have a chance, we'll take some days to be refreshed. One such time was in the middle of this month. We drove to Colorado Springs for a regional Cru conference, and then ... stayed a few days longer to take in some of the sights of the area, and to rest and be refreshed.
It was a beautiful time of year to be there ... we drove up Pike's Peak on one of those extra days, and the next day spent some time at beautiful Seven Falls!Thankful for digital scrapbooking to preserve the memories. And thanking God for the beauty of His creation, and for the great gift of a few days to relax and be refreshed together as a couple.
