We need hope

The death toll has now risen to 9 dead, and the people of the USA and even the world are anxiously waiting news for a miracle of survivors from the tragic Champlain Towers condominium collapse in Miami, Florida. Survivors and their family members of the USA’s 9-11 attack grimly remember that horrifying day as they watch the news about the condo. In the midst of this new tragedy, we’re also dealing with the Coronavirus (and the Delta variant), outbreaks driving some places back under new lockdowns, and other frightening news like the  extreme heat wave across the western United States.

It seems like there is so much bad news now, which is why I rarely even read it any more. I read just enough every few days to know what is going on in the world for prayer/intercessory purposes. 

Hope

We need GOOD NEWS and HOPE.

A bad day and the moon, an ice cream cone, and praise music

Yesterday I had a bad day.  It was just one of  “those” days. When I sat down at my office desk to work on my new mini-training, Conquer the 3 P’s, I began having “techie” trouble with my laptop.

So being the mature, Christian woman that I am (haha!), I had a meltdown. I confess that at one point, I literally SCREAMED because I was so frustrated! Ray and I were broke. (We’re between paydays right now!). And there’s other “life stuff” going on that is stressing me out right now.

Our beautiful cabin on our Grand Canyon trip for Leah’s college graduation

Where you stay on a vacation can be just as important as where you go and what you do. Originally  I had booked a hotel near the Grand Canyon when I planned a trip there with my husband Ray and our daughter Leah, to celebrate her college graduation with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Graphic Design.

But Leah searched online and found a big, beautiful cabin in a remote area near the airport in Flagstaff, Arizona  for us to stay at, and I’m so glad she did! Initially, I was concerned that it might be in the middle of dark, deep, scary woods and we might encounter grizzly bears and cougars at our cabin’s front door, LOL. Ray and Leah rolled their eyes at this!

It was remote, not not too remote—several vacation rental and residential houses were nearby, as well as a Dollar General store and a Shell gas station, which proved to be quite convenient for our water and snack needs and refilling the gas tank in our rented SUV, prior to returning it at the airport the early morning of our departure. Ray filled up the gas tank the evening before we left.

It was perfect for our vacation trip! The cabin was big, rustic, quiet, with cute nooks and crannies, and so comfortable with pretty decorations, like this pic below: “Not all who wander are lost.” I highly recommend this cabin, which can sleep up to 12 people.  The vacation rental agency has many more properties to rent, also.
