Hey there, Company Girls!
I'm writing today from a local Starbucks, the only spot with wifi around here. Internet access has been such a challenge over the last couple of weeks that I quit trying. I thought I'd better check in this morning and let you know that I'm still alive and kicking. :)
We finished our project at Andrew Wommack Ministries.....well, at least enough for them to do their first taping last Friday. I am dying to show pics but since the first programs don't air until November, I don't want to spill their beans for them. It was a ton of work, with the last couple of days being 16 hour days...needless to say we were tired - but happy - by the end. The set looks incredible and I think everyone was excited about how it turned out!
You can see a little bit of the set behind us...ssshhhh! Tom and I got to meet Andrew in person and we were so impressed with him! Genuine, kind, personable...and a great Bible teacher.
From Colorado Springs, we made our way up to the Vail area on Saturday, and are now enjoying our first "real" vacation in a long, long time. I'm not proud of this, but Tom and I figured out that the last time the two of us went away together was before our (now college age) son was born - about 20 years ago! Now, that's just WRONG. What were we thinking??
We will be here for the rest of this week, just enjoying our time and taking in the scenery. The aspens are turning and the weather is gorgeous....it is the perfect way to kick off our "empty nest" season! We've bought notebooks for scribbling our thoughts and dreams for the future and are loving each moment.
I am savoring. I'm lingering, meditating and soaking in the beauty of the changing season. Maybe it's the leaves that are turning golden and firey before my eyes, but my heart is filled with gratitude for God's faithfulness and steady hand in the midst of change. There is wonder and hope for the future, and thankfulness for our history.
It's incredible to be here - in this moment - with the guy I started out with...and feel the goodness of it all. Wow.
