In a blog in early June, I wrote about nearly getting stuck in the driveway of our acre.
The car wasn’t hooked up yet when the ruts came to be and in the rocking back and forth, LeRoy backed into a tree at the edge of the yard without realizing it. After we were on the road, we discovered that the rear view camera was skewed. LeRoy worked on straightening it enough to be able to at least see rearward, but knew it would require more extensive help later. Well, this week was “later”. He needed to put washers on it to keep it from pulling clear through the rear cap. The rear clearance lights were broken in the fracas, too, so it was a project. A two-person project, in fact, one on the inside and one on the ladder outside. Since I don’t do ladders if I can help it, guess which job was mine?
I also happen to be the one who fits in the opening!
It would have been easier if I’d had longer arms, but all the new lights are now in place anyway and we think the camera is positioned better, although without the car hooked up behind, it’s hard to tell.
One of the best things about being at Golden Bell is the view of Pikes Peak we have nearly every day and it is available all over the camp. Here in Colorado, the Peak is known as America’s mountain. Today we attended a worship service in the Dan Walker Memorial Chapel on campus. When we were here two years ago, the chapel was a hole in the ground with some footings poured. Today was the first time we had been inside since it was completed. As you sit looking at the front of the sanctuary, Pikes Peak takes center stage, a reminder of God’s wonderful creation.
In the RV park, there is a bench sitting in front of a perfectly tree-framed view of the Peak. I made a sign to put there this week that says “This view brought to you by Almighty God” and I felt just as blessed seeing that view from the chapel. We’re enjoying our waning time here and praising God for MY mountain!
