Silence

It may seem as though I've been ignoring my blog. Well, I suppose you could say that. But I have good reasons.

1) We started school several weeks ago, and all that new curriculum had me eating, sleeping, and breathing school.

2) My husband is crazy spontaneous and his equally spontaneous boss gave him tickets and a hotel room for the Razorback game a couple of Saturdays ago (at the last minute), which we couldn't refuse! But coordinating that last minute trip with child care and all that goes along with it was a bit of a doozy for me.

3) And last but certainly not least, we left for a very unorganized, no-idea-what-we-are-going-to-do-when-we-get-there trip to Durango, Colorado...on Friday the 9th. And that's where we are right. now.

I am blogging on my phone. (Thank you 3G network.) We have no Internet at the mountain cabin where we are staying. And as it's going to be several more days before we get back home, the silence is going to continue for a bit longer.

But just so you know, I'm okay with the silence...'cuz at this very moment I happen to be surrounded by snow-capped peaks, deepest valleys, river-cut canyons, dark green spruces, softly-passing deer, and ancient Aspen groves. And this environment? Well, it demands silence. And awe. And thankfulness to the One who created such magnificence as this.
