We decided to do something different for Memorial Day this year. We have some precious friends who asked us to join them in Colorado. We jumped at the chance!
We found the most amazing cabin and booked it for the weekend. As we were getting ready to go I kept watching the weather in Colorado….cold and rainy. I was discouraged, to say the least, that we were driving from Texas to Colorado to sit in a cabin. I’m not a fan of cold weather. This girl is 100% Texan and I love the heat. We kept praying the Lord would bless our weekend and keep the rain away so we could hike in the mountains at least once!
(get ready for way too many pictures….)
After we hiked Palo Duro, we repacked our car and headed to Colorado. We drove through pouring down rain. It was a crazy drive. We couldn’t see anything because of the rain. When we got to the cabin, it was snowing so hard. I couldn’t believe that we drove all the way to Colorado to sit in the cabin!
And then we woke up to this…..
Then the sun came out and we saw the mountains surrounding our place!
We spent our days hiking, fishing, laughing, and just being outdoors taking in all of God’s creation. We hiked through the deepest snow I’ve ever seen. It would snow every day, but it wasn’t even that cold. We would drive 20 minutes and the weather would be sunny and gorgeous! I couldn’t get enough of the beauty. It may sound silly, but to be on the top of a mountain, you just feel so close to the Lord. I couldn’t get praise songs out of my head. The whole earth is truly filled with His glory. He is truly majestic!
“He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth– the LORD God Almighty is his name. ” Amos 4:18
We spent our nights talking, playing cards, going on drives, making supper and just being together.
Our time away was amazing. We had no internet and I could barely get on Facebook, then we were completely out of network so no phone access at all. I LOVED it! It was a gift to be able to share time with our precious friends who are full of gratitude and love the Lord like we do. We came home refreshed and renewed….but we have already started planning our next trip.
