Wedding Plans and Building Houses

Dennis and I woke up early, flew to Sedona and hiked in the beautiful red rocks in search of wildflowers. Well after last week and making Dennis stop so I could photograph every flower, I was out to photograph wildflowers, D was out to hike amongst them.

Oh the blooms did not disappoint!

They just kept coming, so many colors, such beauty.

See him from afar!? I told you, he was there to hike and I could snap photos if I wanted but he wasn’t waiting! He really does love my reindeer games.

How could I resist this agave just ready to burst?

Or this agave with it’s tall bloom?

The Yucca’s were having a hard time standing straight, their blooms were full.

I think Sedona is a place where God really shows off! I kept singing, “How lovely is Your dwelling place, oh Lord Almighty… Better is one day in Your courts.”

Amazing among these overwhelming towers of red rock stands this tiny little beauty shining to give us a morning greeting.

Splashes of color every where you turn. “There are so many colors in a flower so let’s see every one!” ~Harry ChapinThey look like dandelions a little. Dots of yellow strewn all over the red makes for a cheery walk.

Hiking and these wondrous blooms and the sounds of the birds singing their welcoming songs was just what my heavy heart needed. Oh how I would love to be in the midst of Samantha and Pete finding an apartment or be by her side while she goes to pick up her dress and picks out shoes. The pain is sometimes sickening.

Lavished with God’s creation and His promises I see the treasure in our life. “Our’s” meaning Dennis, me and our children and grandchildren. We choose Christ. In doing that I know we will all be blessed.  I cherish the time I do get with Samantha and Pete and hold them so dear. So I will press on, enjoy this new world and count the days until I get to be immersed in wedding bliss!

Spoiled ~ Susie
