Road Trip ~ Day 3

After three days of driving we made it to Kansas for Paul's family reunion.  Here are the last of the scenery pictures.  On Saturday Mom and I enjoyed a lazy day relaxing at the hotel while Paul and Kathy attended the reunion.

Road Trip ~ Day 2

As we started out our second day of traveling, we spotted Mater and his friend as we left Moab.
 We saw some amazing homes up on top of high mountains and in the middle of nowhere. 
 We enjoyed beautiful scenery from dessert landscape to snowy mountains.

 In Denver we stopped top visit Aunt Alice and our cousins. 
 It was great to see most of my cousins and their families.

Road Trip ~ Day 1

We headed out on a road trip to Paul's family reunion in Kansas.  Our first stop was Utah.
 Look at all the different colors on this rock/mountain.
 We stayed overnight at Moab which is right by Arches National Park. 
 God's beautiful creation is amazing!

 We really enjoyed all the different scenery we encountered.

Celebrating Kathy!

To celebrate Kathy's birthday we got a room for the weekend at the Wynn.  All I can say is WOW, what a room.  I will share pictures of the room in another post.

Paul gave Kathy a beautiful turtle charm necklace along with some other jewelry pieces.

We watched the Le Reve show.  It was a very unique show with the performers going in and out of water. 

Birthday dinner - exceptionally delicious!

Happy Birthday Kathy!

Kathy is four years older than I am; growing up I was able learn through her mistakes.  If she made a choice and got in trouble, I learned not to make that same choice.  She saved me from experiencing lots of strife and grief in my own life. 

Living with her these past few years, she continues to teach me through her life, only now I am learning how to show grace and mercy to others.  Kathy is  the most giving, loving person I know.  I am truly blessed to have her in my life. 

Thank you Lord for giving me the best sister a girl could ever ask for.

Rescue Mission Ministry

Last year our church volunteered at the rescue mission by serving food.  This year Pastor arranged for us to also minister by doing a church service.  Friday night was our first one and we are scheduled for one next month also.   I would also like to volunteer at the thrift store one day during the week.  

getting ready for the service

there was a great turnout and Lord willing 

There were a few men and women that came forward after the service.  Pray for them as they seek to know the Lord more each day.

To God Be The Glory!
