Checking In

Sorry folks -- it's been six weeks. And I'll only be able to do a brief update now, since next week I leave on two-week short-term missions trip to Zambia, Africa.

I've been swamped: we're in the middle of house renovations, and I had a blecky reaction to a vaccine I needed for the Africa trip, and I got sick, and my youngest was in a car accident (he's okay, just really whiplashed), and hubby has been traveling again (in France and Ireland this wee), and...well you get the idea.

The "kids" are fine; enjoying spring. It's been a fabulous spring so far: high temps in the 60s and low 70s, lows in the 40s and 50s (MY kind of weather). None of this go-from-winter-directly-into-summer stuff this year. It's truly been spring, and it's been delightful.

We've had too little rain, though (we're already in a declared drought-watch here in PA).

But the last time it rained, we saw something we haven't seen in years: a rainbow (full-color, no less). Check this out (I even captured it on my digital camera!):

Way cool! Baxter, Elsie, and Ridge were oblivious, of course -- just wondering what all the hubbub was about as I ran around trying to find my camera.

They may have been oblivious, but I sure wasn't! In the midst of the last several week's challenges, what a terrific reminder it was of God's presence and provision!

'Til next time,
