Last night around 10pm, Matt, Hazel & I pulled into our driveway from a very long weekend & a very long week. We had the absolute HONOR & JOY of spending the weekend with the amazing folks at Spring Creek Church in Milwaukee, WI. We shared about Eliot & about what our lives of missing him are like now. We were blessed beyond words by the folks there...we pray & hope they saw more of God's face through what He's done in us.
It's been a while since I've flown anywhere. In the past, I have equated airports & airplanes with a good book, some quiet down time, great people watching & if I'm lucky, an empty sudoku puzzle in the airline's magazine. I learned very quickly that traveling with Hazel means no more sudoku.:)
Hazel is now 5 1/2 months & we flew with her for the first time. In the hotel, we swam with her for the first time. Through everything, she did great. She was exhausted pretty much the whole time, but did wonderful. We are proud parents. Here are a few pics of our weekend adventures!
As you can tell by the last picture, we come home a bit tired. But life goes on & we actually move from our house today. This is the house where Eliot lived. It has been very emotional for me (Ginny). Part of me wants to stay in this house forever because it was the last place I held him & within these walls the Spirit of God moved & loved & worked in inexplicable ways. I keep having to remind myself that I get to bring each memory of Eliot with me. If you are the praying type...pray for our hearts during this move.
