Reflections in Steamboat

I'm in Steamboat and I'm enjoying it. It's beautiful here! We did this more for Bill though. This is where he really looked forward to spending his time. He loved it here and I'm sad that I don't get to savor the time here together with him. This was his conception. Every place I look I want to turn to him and say "This turned out great!" But it's more than that. He loved the outdoors and this is where he was going to fill that love. Instead I'm doing it without him. I miss the opportunity to hear him say "Welcome to God's country!" Steamboat is filled with down to earth nice people, no traffic and great beauty and I wish so much that Bill was here to enjoy it with me!

Bill loved his Gator! Now Colin gets to love it

He'd be sitting in this chair admiring his territory

He'd be smiling at this gorgeous sunset


He'd be smiling at this rainbow too

My heart hurts, I love you! Beautiful pictures, if only Bill was there to see them too, however.....how do we know he's not seeing what you are seeing? I believe Bill and Patrick is in that rainbow, sunset, tractor and bench! Glad you are having a change of scenery! {{{{{Debi and Colin}}}}}

The picture of that rainbow is amazing, probably Bill and Patrick shining upon you :)

All these gifts came from the love of our Lord - yes, even the chair and Gator! - just as your dear husband and son came from Him. I'm absolutely sure that they were with you at these moments, bringing graces from our Savior!

And when I read your post, I immediately thought of this verse from Corinthians . . .

"But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him."

We cannot even begin to fathom the beauty and the fullness of Christ that they are seeing in Heaven.

You and Erynn will be in my thoughts and prayers at Mass this morning. God bless you.
