Today I write to you from my hotel room in Colorado Springs, CO.

Journey highlights:

Day 1:
  • Exceptionally fired up praise for my last Sunday morning at PUMP.
  • Tearful goodbyes from and to all my friends there.
  • A beautiful ride through the Columbia River Gorge as rain clouds, mist, and sun rolled through.
  • Brisket sandwiches for dinner, compliments of Karla Lowery.
  • Listening to The Magician's Nephew and the first half of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Day 2:
  • Extreme wind all the way through Wyoming.
  • Quick visit to Walmart in Rock Springs.
  • The second half of LWW and The Horse and His Boy.
  • Surprisingly "low" gas prices.
  • Arriving in Colorado Springs.

Day 3:
  • Breakfast with Ryan and Steve before they left for Arlington.
  • Unloading and getting rid of the U-haul trailer.
  • Driving around the Springs looking at apartments, etc.
  • Dinner at an old Train Depot.
More later....

Glad to hear you made it to the springs safely! I'll be praying that the apartment hunting goes well. Will you also be job hunting while you're there? God's blessings getting everything in place!
