Five of our family flew to Colorado Springs for my youngest son’s ordination as a pastor. That event was special enough, yet, the weekend was full of additional adventures.
Exploring Garden of the Gods, an awe-inspiring collection of rock formations.
Visiting the Air Force Academy, especially its architecturally beautiful chapel.
Driving through North Cheyenne Cannon—tight tunnels and a winding road so narrow that one car must stop or pull to the edge when encountering another car.
And much more: Watching the Preakness on the largest TV I had ever turned on—my mother-in-law’s favorite horse won; Catching snippets of Prince Harry’s wedding on the same incredible TV; Celebrating my mother-in-law’s 81st birthday.
On the drive home from the airport, I asked the son who had traveled with us to name his favorite event. His answer? “Just being together as a family.”
It was a good reminder that while special activities can be valuable, just being together as a family is more so.
What is your favorite “Just being together as a family time?”
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!Psalm 133:1a ESV
