I'm Back and Off Again

Hi Friends!

I just returned from a lovely holiday with part of my family. We were able to see a bit of Europe and enjoy Easter together. It was a fun packed time and upon returning home I've hit the road running. I've been catching up on some things and been preparing for the Encounter weekend in Waren. We leave tomorrow morning at 7:45am and we have an 8 hour drive ahead of us. Once we get there I will be on the leadership team, so that means I will be there to pray with people after each session as well as teaching a session on sin. I figure I've got lots of experience in this department.

I've still gotta pack but here's a few quick pics from our trip. These are the girls who danced wonderfully on Sunday.

Walking around Mannheim with lotsa rain which typified our trip.

In Heidelberg

One of the many castles dotting the Romantic Rhine

Nemo: named after the architect and inside it's a hands on Science museum for kids.

This is the most difficult part of the Rhine to navigate, this is where the legends says the sailors would be distracted by the Sirens.


This one's for Rish!

A few tulips were up but most were still just shoots due to the long winter.

Lovely Lillies

We're in Holland

Wind blown tulips.

Corrie Ten Boom's house that you can read about in "The Hiding Place"

This one's for my neighbors back home.

Alkmaar Cheesemarket (Kaasmarkt)

Beautiful skies!

Cool building in Denmark.

That's a glimpse of our trip.
Thanks for checking in.


  1. I'm horrible about checking blogs. I'm glad you put the update link on Facebook. Your folks said that you had a great time with your sister & BIL. SO glad that they were able to come and spend time with you. (I LOVE Heidelberg!!!!) I also understand that you've got a busy push to the end. Know that you are prayed for (and thought of) often. Can't wait to hear all about your experiences in person! Take care, my friend!

  2. Hi Donna,

    I am too, that's why I'm surprised anyone reads this thing. So you've been to Heidelberg? When? Thanks so much for your prayers and Easter card. It will be fun to catch up in person, not long now! I hope you enjoyed your Spring break as well.
