Sunrise, Sunset!

This was the view out our window at Sunset this week.
We are safely back in Aberdeen after a full six weeks in the States for the holidays. It was one of the best visits we had -- very relaxing and refreshing; and we got to spend time with family and friends. It was a little hard coming back.

But we were so blessed coming home to good friends. Emily picked us up at the airport, fed us lunch and dinner, turned on our heat and made sure we settled in. She has also taken care of me and the kids (for meals, play time and fellowship) this week while Darren has been out of town. We are blessed!

Life is slowly settling back into routine. Joshua is back in school and both kids have finally settled back into a good sleep routine. It has taken us the full eight days (a day for every time-zone crossed) to feel like normal; jet-lag was the worst this time. Darren has been down in Edinburgh most of this week for a lecture series that he has been looking forward to for years.

We have been greeted by incredible weather. It has not rained once since we arrived last Thursday, and the sun has been out almost the entire time. It is cold, but dry. The sunrises and sunsets have been beautiful, brilliant colors -- even as I type I can see bright pink covering the gray-blue clouds as the sun comes over the horizon. Breath-taking!

So life continues, one sunrise and one sunset at a time. We settle back into routine. And rejoice in all the blessings and beauty God has given us!
