“RU?” reads the text on my cell.
It’s from my sister.
It’s always from my sister – her unique and identifiable call out to me.
“RU?” means a lot of different things between us.
“RU?” can mean: Where are you? How are you? Do you need anything? What are you doing? Why aren’t you here? When are you coming home? or even Where’s my Rooibos Tea latte and why are you taking so long???
I’ve been AWOL from my blog for three weeks now and I’m starting to get e-mails from many of you that are the equivalent of my sister’s “RU?”
So, I’ll answer you all here at the same time.
R at the beach…
soaking up the northwest…
Whenever I get that text from my sister I always feel missed, and it’s nice to be missed I think. It’s encouraging to have someone anticipate spending time with me – I love that. Don’t you love that?
RU? I thought I heard God ask me this morning.
“On vacation, Lord, and soaking up this amazing Oregon you’ve created.”
“Just wait til this afternoon,” He said.
Afternoons at the Oregon Coast are dazzling. Watching the sun’s afternoon rays dance across the water’s surface have the same hypnotic effect on me as does staring into a fire – everything else fades away and I’m left only with this present moment of peace.
Well, it’s afternoon and this is what I’m looking at right now as we speak:
So, I still don’t have a specific update on where we will be living. Our stuff is still in storage in Colorado, and I’m eager to get back there to see what the Lord has ahead of us. In the meantime, I’m enjoying this part of the journey and soaking up as much Oregon ambiance as I can so that when we do return, it will linger long in my heart and spirit.
This place totally refuels me!
Enjoy the end of summer everyone. I’ll be back soon with an “official” update…well, if someone can pry me out of this ocean hideaway I’ll give you an update.
