they said that the skies here would remind me of God's glory, and boy do they ever! I think Ari gets sick of hearing me say "wow look at that cloud!" but what can I say - the sky here is huge, the clouds are amazing... I'm teaching my kids to write with "rich words" right now but I can't even think of the right words to describe their glory to you... photos wouldn't even do them justice (the clouds not my kids, haha!)
I'll cry a little, I already have, but there will be joy too… Joy in knowing that we'd still be friends if he were around, that he'd be stoked that I'm here and that I get to go climb a mountain in a few weeks, among other things. Joy in knowing that he'd be right in the middle of doing what he loves, too… last night I was in a conversation with some of the guys here about how great it was to watch people who were really good at their craft, whatever it was. So it would be awesome to see now… alas, he's now climbing Bigger Mountains than I'll probably get to see for a while… (yes, I wonder how much of this is silly clichés that we tell ourselves to make it easier for us to comprehend… bottom line, he's in the midst of Pure Glory right now, and I get glimpses of that glory when the sun sets like it did this evening… and I'm thankful…)
Pray special prayers today, my friends… pray special ones for your special ones… Remember that nothing can seperate us from the love of God...
