Family Bluegrass

The bus once again pulled into Seward this afternoon -- after a full weekend of travel. And this time the miles amounted to more than we had planned. Upon receiving the news that Mom's uncle had passed away, we detoured our northern trip via our grandparent's house for a day spent with family. Again we were reminded -- life is so short.

Then, after giving our big goodbye hugs (love ya, Grandpa & Grandma!), we turned our hearts northward for the Lake Itasca Family Bluegrass Festival. And what an encouragement! Our dear friends, the Berge family, have done a wonderful job organizing and making this event possible. We were refreshed by the old-time atmosphere, cool weather, great 'live' music, and Christian fellowship. The time just flew too fast!

"Wherever you are, be all there.
Live to the hilt every situation
you believe to be the will of God."
Jim Elliot

Mark your calenders for the first weekend of August 2008! You will be blessed!

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's uncle! I pray the Lord brings peace and comfort in the void he leaves behind.
