what I liked about idaho

While Nate was away at camp and the kids were enjoying Vacation Bible School actvities, I snuck over to Idaho for quick work related trip to inspect a hotel. I was gone for less than 48 hours, but it made for a little adventure. A change in scenery, even though not a true "vacation" can bring about needed times of reflection.

Traveling alone gave me time to be thankful for blue skies. I took this photo while singing a worship song outloud in my little rental car...just me and the Lord...

reflect on safe crossings...what a crazy year for our little family...

the bridge

admire how other people live....

(In cool looking black painted houses with sheep in their front yard!)

and pray for pretty valley's...the valley times bring the needed changes and growth. I will try to picture them more like this and less like dark pits.

(If I lived in this valley, I would be tempted to make my little home look like a little hobbit house)

magic valley

for more reflections and thoughts of everyday people unwrapping their day...visit Chatting at the Sky

What a beautiful place! I totally want to live in that house with the sheep as long as I don't have to drive over that bridge to get there!!!

these photos are fabulous. it is humbling to think of you on the other side of the country unwrapping your day as you drive and sing and give thanks. I'm so glad you shared, though I'm late in visiting.
