Rocky Mountain High

We arrived home at 3:00 a.m. and woke up at 11:00 a.m. to a cat who is not “speaking” to us. I’ll give her some space and hopefully she’ll snap out of it.

Yesterday flying over the Rocky Mountains was a highlight for me (which is why we go through Denver on the way to California). If you hit it just right, the layers of pastels at sunset are a blur of lavender, orange, yellow, and violet with a smoky haze that takes your breath away. However, we did not see that view this time, but it was still spectacular.

This morning, I’m still on a “high” because my passport arrived (a miracle!). Sometime I hope to share the rest of the story on that one (smile!)...

Although spring has arrived in all its glory in California, we arrived home to shades of gray in Lancaster County. But this morning (okay, this afternoon—to be precise!), I peeked out the window and saw a fleck of yellow. Spring has delivered its first package—a yellow crocus. The daffodils and tulips will follow (hopefully!).

I’ll leave you with some memories of our time in California with family…

I love your pictures of Calif., the colorful flowers makes me wish that spring was here, I think!!!!!

We see all this handiwork around us, and realize how "Great Our God" is, then the thought comes to mind, of "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be!"

I still have not seen a robin here in the Pocono Mts.

Angels Around You,

I have daffodils and crocuses! There are buds on the trees, but no blooms yet. I guess I will get two springs this year. :-)

Spring is my favorite time of year (running a close second to fall!).

Blessings to you!!!!
