"...In the dance of sun and water and sky. In the faces of the people who need us most and of the people we most need. In the smell of breakfast cooking on a charcoal fire. Who knows where we will find Him or whether we will recognize Him if we do? Who knows anything even approaching the truth of who He really was? But my prayer is that we will all of us find Him somewhere, somehow, and that He will give us something of his life to fill our emptiness, something of his light to drive back our dark"

I blinked and it's 2015

Nels and I have been talking lots about 2014 and what our favourite moments were.  I love the New Year and setting goals but its always fun (and I think important) to look back at the year that passed.
Funny thing is, our favourite moment was one of the simplest things ever.

Drumroll please… best moment of 2014…

a blueberry u-pick!!!

We lead exciting lives don't we!?!?

I kid you not, this night was one of those fun ones.  We were sitting around the back deck in Harrison getting ready to head home from holidays and we were probably talking about how great blueberries are.  It was getting pretty late but it was a beautiful summer evening and Mom said she had seen a blueberry u-pick up the road.  We piled in the van and got to this awesome farm where the guy let us pick all the blueberries we wanted for free!!  The kids were loving it, the blueberries were huge, and the night was so fun!

I'm not sure what this says about our year but i loved this night because were were with people we loved enjoying the outdoors and eating good food.  Here's to more of the same in this New Year!!
