Awesome Things

I TOTALLY forgot to mention the coolest thing that happened last week on my way home from California!  I landed in Portland mid-afternoon and texted my parents to let them know that I had landed safely.

No sooner had I sent the text, I rounded the corner at the airport only to see my DAD walking towards me to board his flight to Spokane!!!  How crazy is that!  In a big airport, I ran into my wonderful daddy.  It was a much-needed 10 minutes and hug - then we were off on our own separate ways.  (Kind of reminiscent of this event, don't you think?  :)

Taken on Dad's phone to make Mom jealous...  :)
I miss my family a lot, but I am so thankful for moments like this.  Thankful for a Dad who loves me lots and a God who cares enough about our lives to orchestrate a "chance meeting" like this for me at a time when I needed it most. Totally makes travelling worth it.

PS - In case you aren't familiar with the wonderful man that is my father, please educate yourselves here and here.

  1. THAT was the highlight of my travels! I keep watching for you in other airports...so far no luck! I'm thankful for God's many graces in your life...and you are one of the blessings he's given to me. Thanks for the smiles, hugs, and occasional swing dances!
    love you, Dad

We will also remind you that this is just a BLOG…just the highlights. We don’t sit around happily smiling for pictures all day long. Our life is far from perfect: we are imperfect people serving a perfect God. We do strive to glorify God, but we fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free.
