climb every mountain
OK, I know I'm a bit of a snob. I beg your pardon, I really do. Its just that the printed newspaper is on its way out, my friends, ON ITS WAY OUT, and in a world where junior-highers are learning about relationships from social networking sites, I am a bit protective of anything...well...real.
That said, Daniel took the above picture of Z and B on a mountain outside the city the other day, and it reminded me of The Sound of Music. Hand them each a pair of green and white paisley knickers and we might actually be fooled.
The thing is, they were on this mountain because Brave and I were in Thailand for another medical emergency. One might imagine us grumbling about that, about having to go through that kind of thing, again, but I can honestly tell you that Brave sucking in that nut was an answer to prayer. Zion and Bright have been going through a tough time lately, and G0D knew that they needed five days of hiking and spelunking and not brushing their teeth. He knew they needed to build fires and forts and be showered with the kind of strong, tender, challenging, approving, awesome, safe, wild, deep, and enveloping love that only a daddy can give.
And as it were, I came home to
the sound of music.
