Just a Note


I'm away from home for a few days, with limited internet access so no photos. I hope to get back to posting next week. In the meantime, thanks for the comments on my previous post.

We're visiting friends who live in Baja California, Mexico. They are from our church community and are here to work with others who want to help pull people from lives of poverty and despair. We've had a full couple of days driving around bumpy, muddy roads seeing some amazing stories of people who care for others in practical ways, such as building houses, providing rehab for drug and alcohol addictions, breakfast clubs for children, and a transition home for women.. My heart is full. My back is sore. Lots to think about.

Today we walked on the beach - lovely sand beneath my bare feet. How I love it. The waves are amazing, unceasing, powerful, crashing incessantly upon the shore. Reminds me of God's love.

Looking forward to reading and commenting on your blogs soon.

How lovely to be warm and walking under sunny skies. I know you must be providing a boost to the people who are working this worthwhile project.

Hope you got some pictures of your trip, Lorrie. I've been on several mission trips to Mexico and I always come back more blessed than the folks we went to help. It kind of got in my blood. Bless you and your friends for doing that.

I haven't visited the ocean down there in Baja - I'll bet it's beautiful tho. I'll be anxious to hear about your trip! Vickie
