We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

In the Garden

This week Dave and I spent several days at a beautiful retreat center with 75 other leaders from our ministry, praying together and dialoguing together about how we can more effectively reach our country for the Kingdom. It was an awesome, tiring, inspiring, exhausting time. One of the blessings was that we had the most amazing weather for our days there. Every day after lunch we would slip away before the next session started for a walk in the garden.
One afternoon we just had to head towards this pond with it's miniature waterfalls.
The spring flowers were incredible.
 So many different kinds of daffodils of every size and color.
Did you know that rhododendrons bloom at different times in the spring according to their colors? First comes light pink, then purple and next comes red.
The tulips are just beginning to open up. Who knew that yellow tulips would be my favorites?
Dave captured the water on this old water wheel, cool, refreshing water sort of like a walk in the garden in the midst of busy days of meetings.
