A Room with a View...

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

 This is what I see as I look out the window while writing this post...not too shabby. Skis, sun, and slopes equal a great way to begin a Tuesday morning. 

Yesterday, while riding the lift, my white and blue skis clanking ever so slightly, I was struck- I am so blessed. My beautiful baby boy is on a snow walk with Grammy around the base, my amazing husband to my right and my incredible father-in-law to my left laughing and regaling each other with stories of the first time Eric skied, and nothing but the big blue Colorado sky and a snow-packed ready-to-be-rocked mountain lay before us. How did I get here??

About once a week a rendidtion of Once in a Lifetime by the Talking Heads is belted from some lost crevasse in our house..."And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife...and you may ask yourself, how did I get here?"  I do ask that question, I do.

How is it that I, a sinner, so imperfect, and in need of so much refinement can sit here, in this mountain condo, waiting for the steaks to marinade and Cal to wake up? How did I get here? 

Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more. 
I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! 
 ~Luke 12:48-49

I think those thoughts a lot too. It is incredible and humbling to think about the people we used to be and where we are now with all that we have. Those verses from Luke really put it in perspective. Thanks for writing Kristen!

Isn't it, though, Vick? Really, we are so blessed and have come so far...just makes me think what the Lord has planned for us. A little scary...but exciting!! Here's to living up to expectations:)
