When driving across the 'lone star state', I'm always amazed at how big TEXAS is!
You can see for miles, and miles and...
...miles and miles...
And though it took 8 hours to travel through the 'snoring-boring' Texas panhandle,
there were signs of ' fun to come', along the way!
And Happy we were hours later, when the terrain began to change....
...and continue to change into a majestic, mountainous display of splendor!
WELCOME TO COLORADO!!!
Check back soon for lots of 'white water' fun and photos from the 1st day raft trip!

This is Kimberly! Our youngest daughter....who currently is a river guide at Noah's Ark White Water River Rafting Co. in Buena Vista Colorado. She has been doing this for a few years and craves adventure! If it's dangerous and scarey, she like it! That's how it feels to Kimberly's momma, anyway! Well, our family and best friends are about to embark on a little adventure. Everyone is so excited to relax in the rockies, raft the Arkansas River, veg & visit on our deck overlooking a creek, raft the Arkansas river, play golf, shop and watch our bff Jason Nix play 2nd base for the Colorado Sky Sox! We are going to have so much fun!!! Woohoo!
SPEAKING OF FUN.....
Now, I'm not sure what's going on in this picture. Kim maybe bored or just taking a nap. . .. . . but the boy's look pretty happy. Which could mean the river is running slower and the water is less 'life threatening'! But wait a second! Let me get a better look at those boy's.....oh, know! surely not!!! Yep! There's no doubt about it...it's the same look I've seen on Kim's face time and time again. It makes a mother shudder! Oh, by the way, the river is running higher than normal. This means DANGEROUS!
If you happen to be in Buena Vista, CO and want to have a little wilderness adventure, stop into Noah's Ark White Water River Rafting Co.

Blossoms of Friendship
Friendship Springs Eternal
Buds in Life's Garden ( too cute!)
Sixteen years ago I painted this large watercolor for my best friend, Leslie. It was her birthday. I painted, matted and framed it all in one day and gave it to her before the sun set but I didn't give it a title. Our friendship, like the garden depicted, has been a constant source of light, truth and love where God has grown in us. We share countless memories and stories. I consider Leslie and her precious family one of the sweetest of God's gifts ! With her birthday just around the corner I'd love for her painting to have the perfect title.......That is where you come in and the contest begins.
