I can't believe it's been nearly a week since I was on, but it's the truth. It's been a good and crazy week. I picked Garry, Tim, & Kay up from the airport as planned on Tuesday morning. It was so much fun to meet Kay, who was a huge blessing to me this week as we talked about knowing God and life in the mission aviation world. We spent most of Wednesday with Joel & Missy and Tim & Kay, discussing the flight program and our worldwide mission aviation program. It was great to hear what God is doing in Arizona and where our leadership is hoping to go in the coming months and years.

Thursday morning Garry and I drove back to the city with Tim & Kay and enjoyed a nice lunch before they headed to the airport and we headed home. (Trivia: the city is about 93 km away, and with current road conditions and "normal" delays, it takes over 3 hours to drive one way!) Lately I've been dreaming about freeways as we've made the trip back and forth multiple times over the past weeks.

Christmas is just 2 weeks away! And no, I haven't blogged much about the Christmas season, because it hardly seems like it will happen.... or maybe that should be, "is happening". The abnormally normal parts of life keep us moving at a quick pace. And so we haven't started to decorate or shop... maybe next week:). On the other hand, the reality of Christmas doesn't need trimmings, it remains firm as it has throughout history. The birth of God Incarnate is something to celebrate and ponder, but the "trappings" of Christmas aren't a necessary part of that process. Still, with two kids still at home, I think we'd better do something!
