This has been a productive week. LeRoy is out from under the bus! He’s also an expert at replacing wheel studs, I think, but that’s a story for him to tell. The leaks in the air system are taken care of, everything has been greased that needs it, the brakes have been adjusted and all the wheels and tires have been put on. Now on to deciding what to take along for the winter and what to leave home.
The house we put so much work into this summer is now someone else’s property to rent! We closed that deal on Tuesday and we couldn’t be happier. What a blessing that the buyer was just dropped in our laps and we didn’t have the expense of a realtor or the hassle of lending institutions involved.
This week we’ve been blessed with some beautiful seasonal colors and colorful reminders that God did a very artistic job of creation. The trees are not yet in full color, but there is red and yellow all around and the leaves aren’t all on the ground yet, either. We’ve had some beautiful sunsets, too. Arizona has wonderful sunsets, usually silhouetting the mountains with deep vivid colors but nothing much beats a Kansas sunset for this Kansas girl. Just when the pink and yellow colors at the horizon were about gone and the streetlights were coming on, the light started reflecting off the clouds higher up. I love it!
And this is the view later this week from the Landing.
On Thursday after a light sprinkle, I looked out the car window and saw a column of rainbow that ended at low clouds. I looked to my right and saw the corresponding column and by then the arch began to show itself, the widest and tallest rainbow I have ever seen. My camera couldn’t capture both ends and the top. My friend Landon March sent me a picture of it from his end of town, a complete double rainbow.
So contrary to what it seems like in Texas and Mexico this week, God’s promise that he will not destroy the world by flood still remains!
