Last month I got to hang out with these dear friends in Florida. Yes, that's right. This home-lovin' Oregonian who hadn't flown in 18 years braved the journey so that I could hug and kiss on a handful of little ones who are no longer orphans, and spend some time with the families God had chosen for them. Our family has had the incredible pleasure of being a part of our Father's work of setting the solitary into families over and over again for 11 years!
Is God in His holy habitation.
I have a number of pictures to share. Here I am with a portion of the Shubin clan on "the other west coast." I got to visit the true East Coast with my nephew later in the week when he kindly drove me over for the sunrise...thank you Arthur :-). This beach had beauty all its own, and the company I enjoyed was fantastic, but I'll take the easy-on-the-feet sand of Oregon's coast lands over the itty-bitty-ouchy-on-the-feet shells of the other west coast any day. Just sayin'.
We hung out around the house a lot,
playing games, jumping on the trampoline, coloring, etc.
It was just good to be with these friends, whatever the activity!
