where in the world?

Where in the world have I been? We'll the boys and I have travelled many miles to spend 4 sweet weeks with my family in beautiful Colorado. I don't know how much longer we will be able to run away for weeks on end to enjoy grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and dry warm weather!

There's been tons of fun! Lot's of playing, VBS this week with a CAR theme of all things! (Talk about exciting for two car fanactic boys.), swimming, water fights, dress up...and that's just been with one set of cousins. The second set just returned from their summer vacation to distant relatives and so we get to pick up fun activities with them starting this weekend.

The boys have truly enjoyed the time with my family. We still have yet to make it to the mountains...of course we get to see their majestic beauty everyday as we drive from one place to the next. They are always there...tall, strong...majestic. I long for those mountains and look forward to a few quick jaunts to take in their incredible beauty this next week before we depart.

No pics today...unfortunately, I'm on the wrong computer to download any...will try tonight to get some up and running.

Colorado is truly a beautiful place to spend some summer vacation....I still dream that someday in the future God will lead us back to this place....but He is also impressing upon me my need to find contentment wherever He has chosen to place me at this season in my life. A little hard for such a control freak!

Lord, you know my "comings and my goings" (Psalm 139) know my thoughts before they even come into my head...may I keep my eyes fixed on you...the author and perfecter of my faith. Where you lead may I follow with a glad heart!

I hear you girl! It's hard to leave a place you love, but God really does teach us so much about finding contentment wherever we are, as we allow him to. I have struggled with that myself. Enjoy your vacation and drink a Peaberry coffee for me! Love you!
