On the Road!

Yes, it's really true -- we're on the road!!! This is a picture taken only a few minutes ago, but already the Colorado mountains are taking up more of our window-space as we drive into Denver. It's been over seven years since we've been to the Colorado Rockies and I forget how dazzlingly beautiful they are. As the sun glistens on the snow caps I can't help but marvel at their majesty. Yet another display of our God's handiwork!!!

But back to the 'update' -- Our bus was finished around 4:30 this morning, and after a flurry of re-loading last minute items (besides several sleeping children!) we were heading down the interstate. And how quickly the miles have been flying by ever since. [smile] We're planning to drive straight through in hopes of arriving for a school chapel in the Los Angeles area tomorrow morning.

Please pray for safe travels (especially through the mountains), and for the bus to mechanically work well! Stay tuned...but for now, here are a few 'bus moments' we captured for you --

Even Charissa is happy to be on the road -- we are thankful she is such a delightful, easy-going traveler!!!

Today will be full of 'life in the bus' -- school, reading, and enjoying the new scenery. Oh, and perhaps a fuel stop or two when we can all pile out and run off our energy!

"Your righteousness is like the great mountains;
Your judgments are a great deep; O LORD.
How precious is Your loving kindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust
under the shadow of Your wings."
Psalm 36:6-7
