I'm Back!

Imagine white sandy beaches, purple heather covered hills, blue mountains, and green, green, green everywhere....and you have barely even scratched the surface of the beauty of Ireland! It was a feast for the eyes everywhere I looked! But the most beautiful thing I experienced by far was the people. Such hospitality and warm generosity at every turn...I was so blessed by it all! Here are a few pictures to give you a tiny taste of my trip:
The beautiful coast of Ireland

Delicious food!

New, wonderful friends!

It was a wonderful time altogether and there are many more pictures to come! The whole trip was like an incredible gift to me that seems like a dream. I am so grateful for the chance I was given to meet some of the most wonderful believers, learn a few rousing Irish tunes, experience a good dose of Celtic culture, and bask in God's amazing creation.

Praise the Lord for the good gifts that He gives!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,

coming down from the Father of lights..."

Ah, so good to have you back, Mel! I loved playing "Drowsy Maggie" with you at our concert...I missed making music with you! I think our family needs to take a trip to Ireland...for several reasons...!! :)
