Road Trip and Demolition...

Image
I made a slow enjoyable road trip a few weeks ago back to Las Vegas, NM to CBH.  First stop was in Mighty Merk to see my sweet folks. It's always a pleasure to be out on their land and have room to roam around in.  Dad is 85 and is still taking care of the farm and chickens and cows not only on his farm but another ranch an hour or so away.  He is an inspiration and a larger than life fellow to me.  My mama is pretty special also. :)

There were several coffee stops on this road trip but one of my favorites was in Clovis, NM. Check it out if you are ever going through there. So good. Blackwater Coffee Co. Another favorite stop is in a little spot in the road in Taiban, New Mexico. There is really nothing there much except this sweet structure sitting off of the right side of the road. I read that it was a Presbyterian church built in 1904 and that it was a frequent stop for outlaws in the early 1900's, including Billy the Kid.  There is just something about this place. You can…

Happy Independence Day!

This land is your land, this land is my land From the California to the New York island
From the Redwood Forest, to the gulf stream waters This land was made for you and me As I went walking that ribbon of highway I saw above me that endless skyway And saw below me that golden valley This land was made for you and me I roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts And all around me , a voice was sounding This land was made for you and me When the sun comes shining, then I was strolling
In the wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting This land was made for you and me This land is your land and this land is my land
From the California to the New York island From the Redwood Forest, to the gulf stream waters This land was made for you and me
Blessings! Amy

CBH 2019

The best week of the year and especially of the summer has come and gone again so very fast.  Having the blessing and privilege to be a teacher at CBH another summer is so special to us. A little bit of heaven on earth.  The fact is that our kids having been campers for many summers and then counselors and now teachers and camp photographers has been spiritually life changing and molding and beautiful. (Also, our oldest met his wife there so that is for sure a great blessing.) We are so thankful.  Choosing to send your kids to Christian camps and especially this one is a decision that we as parents will never regret and I will always and forever give praise to God for the opportunity.

We had a special group of campers in our class this summer. They love each other well, and even though they struggle with the hard things of life, they have warrior hearts and I know that they will live for Him and bring other people to heaven with them.

Below is part of a letter of encouragement being…
