Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
Ah... it DOES take practice. Cassidy always tells me I have a lot more practicing to do on this very thing. LOLReplyDelete
It doesn't come easily for me.
I LOVE that quote Kristi!!
I think most people could benefit from more practice--I know I can!Delete
Isn't that quote great? Though English isn't his first language, Dieter Uchtdorf seems to have a way with words.
Yes, something I admit I need more of :))ReplyDelete
We're all four year olds inside, aren't we? Is it my turn? Is it my turn? Can I go now? Can I do it? I want a turn! I want to go next!ReplyDelete
(Can you tell I just got home from preschool?!)
Well, especially if it was Big Wheel Day!Delete
Patience is a lesson that is really hard for young children to learn. Amara is often so anxious to tell me something that she doesn't even hear what I am saying.ReplyDelete
And it isn't that easy for adults, sometimes, either!Delete
(aka 'acceptance'… and what a remarkably difficult process for something that is, at it's heart, very simple.) (My favorite author, Carlos Castaneda, has a term, 'the Path with Heart'… which (I believe) refers to engaging life without fear or reservations, knowing that the things beyond our control are a part of the whole and not, as often we react, personally aimed at me… the acceptance of this goes a long way (for me) to approaching the sentiment in your message.)ReplyDelete
The phrase "eternal perspective" comes to mind.Delete
