It's really been a crazy new year so far! We left Michigan January first and we just got back this week. We were in Little Rock visiting my parents, Kansas City visiting my sister, we spent a week in Denver helping Jason and Erica get ready for their wedding and then after they got married we went to Palmer Lake, Colorado for three weeks of missionary training. It was great to see my family (I've already posted a few blogs about that part of the trip) and we had a great time seeing Colorado!
Over the past month I've come to the conclusion that it's pretty hard to be in Colorado and not be impressed by the hugeness of God. Everyday when we woke up, we looked out the window, and just stared at the gorgeous mountains surrounding us. They were breathtakingly beautiful. It was really weird that everywhere we went had such awesome scenery. You just don't expect to see a McDonalds with a spectacular mountain view!
and had all of our classes for three weeks.
t was really well designed and we had a great time.
There was a lot of open space around us for hiking.
(just behind our building) to watch the sun set. It was so worth it!
Another picture from the hike.
loud flapping noise right behind us but because of
the acoustics in the cracks it sounded like an
army of pigeons! I jumped and almost fell out of the rock!
So, maybe even after just this little glimpse you can agree with me - God is huge!
