All in God’s Family

Visiting family and the brethren as expressed in the family of the church of God over the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season of 2016 has been filled with His goodness.

Can it be realized any other way, the enormity and connectivity of the family of God? The journey of discovery began on October 27, 2016.

After a quadruple heart bypass on May 28, I was ever so thankful to God for His prayer for the people He surrounds me with, beginning with my wife, our children, doctors, and nurses, all by His appointment. In the days that followed prior to my discharge from the hospital, I had this longing to go on a long vacation and travel back to California.collagefin

To be rested…refreshed. To see family…friends. Maybe all of the above. This is that journey, one filled with relief, joy, and thankfulness with the people the Lord has used the last seven months…much like the lesson in faith I have been blessed to experience because of God’s faithfulness.

Not only that, He included stops to visit family in Folsom up in Northern California…

A stint at Lone Mountain in Las Vegas, Nevada…

Enjoying more snow with Nenita, Kim, and Dave, while dropping in on “The Second Chance Ranch” fellowship in Cascade, Montana…

To top it all off He brought us to parts of the “Great White North“(a.k.a.Canada), which included the flat plains of Grande Prairie where we got to to do a Couple’s Bible Study with our son and his wife…

Drove cross-country to behold God’s work through the views of Jasper, Banff and Lake Louise (included driving in snow), and of course Salmon Arm in Vancouver.banffYes, the people, the experiences and destinations my wife and I got to visit, are proof that God’s family is ever growing and full of beauty. Imagine the opportunity I would have missed had we not taken the first step.

Ready for 2017? Let’s go!!! “Pray without ceasing.”
