Hanging out with darien-whose-name-shows-up-in-the-comments, relaxing

We arrived Thursday night, on time, and we found the car rental place and got our car (a PT Cruiser! we were very excited!!! We're like that!) and I found my way out of the Big Airport In A Strange Big City and onto the right road and two and a half hours later, we got to the motel in the small town (first hint we were headed to a small town? "You're in Room 20 - I'll just leave the door open and your key in the room.") without any trouble. First worry out of the way.

The rest of it? As usual, no details, but here's a verse:

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!" Ephesians 3:20-21

Beyond all that you ask or imagine. I am so grateful for the prayers and support, and to God for the miracle of this weekend, funeral notwithstanding. Elsie, you got it just right in your comment on the last post - "Nothing happens that God cannot use redemptively, and for good, and for His glory." Much good has come of this weekend, and I am thankful to the point of tears.
