Camping at Twin Lakes



For Memorial Weekend, we went camping!!! It was forecasted a high of 46 for the weekend, and snow/rain showers most of the time, HOWEVER: It ended up being sunny everyday and just windy. It was very nice! 

The Crew:
Jon & Cooper (one fang, three working legs)
Tim, Amy, Kastenbaby (second camping trip; Hiking to St. Mary's with Tedfords this winter was first) & Maggie
Jordan & Joy
Ethan
Joe & Alicia!!!!!!! (Flew in just for the weekend from Seattle! Woohoo)





The Set-Up:
One camper for Jon, the Kastenbees, and the Adamacks
One tent for J & J
One tent for Ethan
Three sweet hammocks for the enjoyment of all
One campground picnic table, fire pit, grill (we used it to stand our gas grill on top)



The Fun:
Playing games
Reading
Napping
Sun-burning Tim's chins and Ethan & Jordan's faces (E & J summited Mt. Elbert on Sunday...woot woot)!
Eating
Snacking
Drinking
S'moreing




The Drive: 
Just about two and a half hours on beautiful 285 through the big valley with Fairplay, viewing the Collegiate Peaks from Buena Vista, and onto Independence Pass at Twin Lakes. Stunning.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
