We are preparing to travel to Colorado to again spend another month as Pink House hosts at Glen Eyrie.
I did some elaborate blogs on Glen Eyrie in October - December 2009 and also in May of 2010. You can find some nice pictures and a description of our duties there.
Spring is here , I guess. We had snow every weekend we were gone from here. When we were visiting our children in Missouri we has sleet and frost and had to scrape the ice of the windshield. During the visitation of Corrie’s mom in Michigan, we were exposed to cold weather with hail and sleet. When we visited our children in Minnesota last weekend, again we had sleet and ice to deal with.
I wonder what will happen when we get to Colorado this coming weekend; last year we did have snow here as well. Fortunately, we have missed the devastating storm which have caused so much havoc in many parts of the Midwest and even further east.
Easter was here. We celebrated Resurrection Day with thousands of other worshipers and again focused on the words of the apostle Paul: “...if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile;...”
Even Bertrand Russell (atheist) said: “Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless.”
Our life is meaningful !

I have been lax in keeping up with my blog. I could make excuses, but that does not alter the fact that it has been over one month since the last post. Some sickness, unexpected travel, an a funeral do take up a lot of time. While looking for spring we found more snow and after the funeral of my mother-in-law in Michigan Iowa welcomed us with summer-like weather.
Needless to say, we found a winery to ride to with our local children. As the dust of the last several weeks settles, we are preparing to go to Glen Eyrie again. We are looking forward to work there for the month of May.
Our trip to CEF in Missouri was cut short because of the passing of Mom Kasper. She reached the ripe old age of 94 years and three days. The farewell ceremony was officiated by the oldest grandson and was attended by a majority of the family which consists of 38 grandchildren and 86 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren. All eight of the still living children were there. These numbers do not include the spouses, just the blood-relatives. Life goes on. The youngest family member there was just 2 months old and another great-great-grandchild was expected “any day.”
