Denver Baby!!

So it's official...four weeks from today I will be in Denver!!! Whoo-hoo!!!!

I have never been a spontaneous person. (In fact, a little indecisiveness about this trip is costing me $20 in a fare increase, blah.) But after a phone conversation with my beloved mentor, Diane, on Wednesday, we began planning whether I might be able to make a trip this spring. She can't come to the wedding, but wanted to spend some one-on-one time together in person before then. The more we talked, the more it made sense for me to go out there, because for me to fly out to Denver means I get to see not only her, but her precious children, plus Natalie, the Vermilyas and their fun and adorable kids, the entire Kingdom Building Ministries staff...ah, the thought of going to their morning staff prayer time again once...if only Kathryn makes it out there by then, it will be perfect. (Pray for her! Or better yet, sign up to support her! :) Click here for details...)

I figure, when else in my life am I going to have the freedom and flexibility to just pick up and go like this...and after the wedding, who knows when will be the next time I'll ever get to see these beloved people! Really this is even better than Diane coming to the wedding, because we'll actually get to spend a lot of quality time together.

Anyway, the plans have come together...KBM's travel agent found a great deal out of Fort Wayne, which is unheard of but very convenient for me, and my ticket has been booked! I cannot wait to see all these people who have been such a wonderful part of my life...and, Diane and I are going to take a weekend retreat somewhere, maybe to Estes Park, which is BADLY NEEDED given the current state of my spiritual life. I need the time with God...and the time with Diane will be so sweet. He has truly blessed me by putting her in my life! Oh, God is good, I am so excited!
