Have you ever seen a tree with lavender blossoms?  Leave it to Portugal to surprise me once again!

I haven't had a chance to blog much lately, as my schedule has filled up pretty quickly with a job (YAY!!!  Praise God!) (more on that later) and the beach, which, when you really think about it, isn't something the blog can really compete with.  Sorry.  You can be sure, though, that the next few blogs will enrich your lives in such a way that you won't even remember the 3.5 weeks that I didn't blog at all.

Happy spring-almost-summer!  Unless, of course, you live in Wisconsin or Minnesota, in which case you have just received another bout of frosty weather.  Maybe these chilly temperatures are just another incentive to come visit Portugal??

On a more serious note, our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with those in Minneapolis and Joplin who have suffered immeasurable loss as a result of the servere weather this week.  We pray that hope rises out of the devastation and not only hope, but a renewed sense of life and community as well.  We know God's ever-present hand will heal and provide for all that was lost.

See you on the flip-side... which can probably be translated to "this weekend", but no promises... With the first sign of sun, I'm headed to the sea!
