Short, sweet weekend

Farewell beautiful Rockies,
thanks for the memories.
You've pointed us to God
with your greatness.
We brought some expectations,
and some plans
You far exceeded them all.
We have a few blisters,
and some aching muscles, 
but gained new minds of appreciation,
and shared memories together,
that no one can take away.
You care for the sparrow, 
 you care more for us.
Thank you

Friday evening.
We arrived at Rod and Nanette Millers in time for supper.
Ate hot dogs and fresh melon,
topped off with a cool drink,
and received a warm welcome from smiling faces.
Ended with a singing in the upper room, 
of their barn.

Wish we could say it was early to bed,
it was surely early to rise.

 Saturday found us at a little school,
in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
Heard the reading of Isaiah 53
Who hath believed the report? 
He grew up as a tender plant.
There was nothing about his appearance
that we would desire Him.
He was despised and rejected.
He knew all about sorrow and suffering.
He took up our infirmities and
carried our sorrows, 
Yet we considered him stricken of God!
He was wounded and pierced
for our transgressions.
We all like sheep have gone astray.
We have turned our own way.
 The Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was led like a lamp to the slaughter.
Yet he opened not his mouth.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked.
Yet, it pleased the Lord to bruise him.
He shall see the travail of his soul,
and be satisfied.
By his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many.
He will bear their iniquities.
Therefore will I give him a portion among the great.
Because he poured out his life unto death.
He bore our sins!
And is yet making intercessions for us with our Father!
Can we praise Him enough???

Enjoyed a weekend of fellowship and worship.
Enjoyed meeting new people.
Thankful our children could make some new friends too.
Glad to see some folks from home,
and get to know them all a little better.
All because of Jesus, we have an everlasting connection.

Thank you to Jeremy and Heidi Wray for a place to park our trusty camper.
For feeding us a warm breakfast and satisfying snacks.
For comfy lounge chairs to prop our feet up and kick back.
A place for Ian to finally be able to roam.
And the rest of the children to run off some energy.
For sweet fellowship, and renewed friendships.
We appreciate your sacrifices.
God Bless you.
