So we took a trip to Colorado…. 10 of us. The criteria was: having the root system of either BEING Little or having married a Little (bless). That link created a dynamic which spanned from age 2+ (who was post potty-training) to age 68! Sprinkled within that range was one teenager, one middle-schooler, one elementary … Continue reading How to travel with a LARGE family and not kill each other…… and How to travel this thing called “life” and finish well — they are one and the same!
Psalm 19:1 “The Heavens declare the Glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.” I don’t think I know the person (be them saved or unsaved, a believer or not) who isn’t totally awed and taken aback with the amazing beauty of the sky!
