God Was So Real In the Mountains

Our time in Colorado was so wonderful!!!!! The weather was perfect. Even when it rained it was great. We had family time every day. Phil read us from the The Knowledge of the Holy by A. W. Tozer and Bible. We were truly blessed.

The area that we were in was 8 to 9 thousand high. It was hard to get enough oxygen at times. We went hiking every day and the girls made wonderful meals. I needed the time to get away and the time with my family was so special.

Here is a picture of my two precious girls and husband. Oh, that is me also.
This made me not want to walk any further!
This creek was right out the front of the cabin. I listened to it all day long and night.
It was so beautiful!
I love to get down on the ground and look at all the little life that is right in front of you if you look. When I lived in Alaska this is what I loved about the woods. I will write later and show some of the things I did while I was up there. I sewed every day!!!!!!! I loved it and came up with some really fun patterns. It will take me a bit to get them all ready. It truly was such a wonderful time and I will tuck the memories in my heart.



  1. It sounds like the Lord blessed you all with a wonderful family vacation. It's so great you have more memories to tuck away. It's the beautiful memories that are truly special. Glad you made it home safely.
    Blessings to you all.
