We had a restful night and an easy morning. By easy I mean we didn’t leave at 7 am ;). This trip, we’re not taking it the same way as we did our time out east. We’re going a bit slower, which is nice.
As we left Cheyenne, the terrain changed. It was such a pretty drive. Wide expanses, rugged mountains, herds of antelope, rock formations, grazing cattle, Union Pacific trains motoring along, and massive windmills.
One mental picture I have that really made an impression on me from today was a lone antelope at the top of a hill. Perhaps he was guarding his herd. Are we as Christians always on guard? May we be. On guard from sin and whatever things of the world that would try to pull us away from the Lord Jesus.
We had a bit of trouble this afternoon with the bus engine getting on the warm side. We’re grateful, though, that we could keep going, just going a bit slower as needed on grades.
We’re only about two or three hours from Eagle, so it’ll be an easy drive tomorrow. Thank you for praying for us. God is good!
Oh, one highlight this afternoon was stopping a rest area that has a hill we like to climb. Over the years, we’ve been there a few times, the last being on our way out to Christopher’s wedding. It was great to scale the hill and grab a few pictures. We have so many memories as we drive this stretch. “Oh, we stayed there,” or “Remember when?” or “Wasn’t that where we stopped in the snowstorm?”…
“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
