This morning I find myself with three kids sitting quietly at a table with ninjago legos strewn about....no one is quite awake yet. There's a dog- one part border collie and one part fox who is pacing the room, still unsure if I am a friend or foe.
Last night wrapped up the five consecutive days of events/house concerts. Fairfax, VA- Fort Wayne, IN- South Bend, IN- Noblesville, IN- Valpo, IN- Rock Island, IL. There has been a multitude of bonfires, smores, cookouts, laughter, and new friendships...I'm in love.These are the days where there are moments, of connection, of the Spirit, of shared music and worship. I'm always amazed that an evening in someone's living room is the perfect space to share the antics of Bob Ford AND the adventure of going to the Border and following God's call. Madison came for a couple of days!!! I wanted to give the cello a try in the house concert setting and it added such dimension....maybe she needs to get finished up with college and come out on the road more often??
I hope the pictures share the variety and craziness of the last week. The long drives always ended in catching up with friends with quickly led into late nights of visiting, early mornings of coffees and showers before jumping in the car again. Things will be a little slower this week and I make my way over the next few days across Missouri and Kansas to arrive in Colorado Springs on Thursday. There I'll have a house concert Saturday and then my good friend Darci and I will be on our roundabout way to CA through Wyoming and Utah.
Thank you friends for the beds, the living rooms, the conversations. Can't wait to come back with the stories.
