Back on blogland

It has been over a month since my last blog, which I hope will be my last "mini sabbatical" from blogging.

I was hell of a tired, and had so much work to for our company, that when I had any free time, it was spent just trying to look after myself and the family.

We have been away on holiday for the last 2 and a half weeks, and I would love to share our holiday pics with you all. We went away to Botswana ( again!!),
We went to our families ( in laws) game farm. Real bush, real Africa, not like the fancy 5 star lodges, that try to convince you that this is what real Africa is like. We have no electricity, no generators, no gas ( except for the fridges) and no cell phone coverage.This is our 3rd time back, and its fast becoming our favourite destination.

Each night you sit under the stars, watching the fire and getting lost in time. Its really therapeutic for the soul and its just what I needed. One of the group brought an astronomical telescope. It was amazing to look at the stars and planets ( I saw Saturn, boy is it beautiful!).I was drawn back to how our God, the creator of the universe placed each one in the sky and knows them all by name. It makes me very humble to then think how insignificant I am, and yet I am the apple of His eye.

Here is a picture of the moon taken through the telescope. Stunning Hey?

Awesome Picture! It is amazing that God named all of them and yet He wants a relationship with us. Praying for you and your family.

Exactly! I love looking at the moon. I think if we took more time to stare into the heavens at night... we would realize that the God who created all of that splendor... well, it would put things into perspective... wouldn't it?

Glad to hear you are taking care of yourself!

So glad to see you back! God is so good to us and I am thankful that you had a time of soul restoration and taking in His world and creation :D

I missed you and have been praying for you ((hugs))

Easter blessings!!! Rhonda
