We have been in Palm Springs for the week, giving me so many reasons to be grateful…
1. I am incredibly thankful to my parents who offered us their timeshare and are watching Jessie (and Howie) all week. It is because of their gift of time, resources, and love that Drake and I have been able to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation.
2. The room where we are staying has a view of the mountains that includes snow-capped peaks bordering the desert. It is absolutely stunning! I am in awe of God’s creation and filled with gratitude for the way it draws me into worship of the Maker of Heaven and Earth.
3. I am grateful for the laughter, tears, and even the moments of frustration that Drake and I have been able to share this week.
4. As Drake and I were hiking through the Indian Canyon trails today and we passed a woman with a cane hobbling along on the arm of another hoping to see the beauty of the oasis, I was reminded just how much the ability to walk is a gift. I am grateful to be able to walk, run, hike, skip, and climb.
