May you be safe

"Even though I often give in to the
many fears and warnings of my world,
I still believe deeply that our few years
on this earth are part of a much larger event
that stretches out far beyond
the boundaries of our birth and death.
I think of it as a mission in time,
a mission that is very exhilarating
and even exciting, mostly because
the One who sent me on the mission
is waiting for me to come home
and tell the story of what I have learned."

~ Henri Nouwen

Wishing safe travels to my friends who travel by road, air, sea, sled, and rail this weekend.

Lovely Kathleen - it's snowing hard here in CO. I intend to stay put and wait out the storm. You should be here with your team! I do love the snow!

I hope you have a very HAPPY & SAFE New Years! I'll have to catch up on your blog & see how the mushing is going!

Thanks Kathleen. I love how you frequently post things that make me pause and reflect. Two things that we should all do more of!
