Wednesday's Walk ~ Flagstaff


It's Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane and I'm linking up with Jenilee of The Goodwin Family blog.

Right now, I'm missing our mountain cabin.  Greg and I used to own a home in Flagstaff, Arizona.  We'd make the two hour drive every Friday after work and stay until early Monday morning.  We repeated this process for at least 10 years and ...loved it.

At that time we lived in a small townhouse in Phoenix, so the Flagstaff home was like our real home.  I even joined a church there.  It was such a great change of pace for us.  We had such fun hiking, fishing and riding our mountain bikes.

You've got to check out this view!  I never got tired of seeing it.  Notice the snow capped mountains.

This is the back of the house.  We loved sitting outside on the patio.  At night, the stars were so bright.  I remember reciting Psalm 19 as I gazed overhead.

I'd often find Greg sitting out back watching the ducks in the lake.  We took so many walks around this lake.

We even named the ducks!

Here's a glimpse inside the cabin.  

Greg was so proud of the wildflowers he planted from seeds.

This was our method of transportation when we were in Flagstaff.

And best of all; feast your eyes on the elk!
One year we had so many of them and a few even came and ate some of our flowers.

I really miss Flagstaff and the fun times we had.  The Phoenix weather is great in the winter time but I kind of missed the four seasons.  Driving two hours north to the high country allowed us to experience a whole different world. 

Blessings and love,

I miss your cabin with you! It's darling! Somehow or other I am happily discovering that God gives us "other cabins" as our lives are challenged, unfold and that we may again have those times of joy. (Why is it so hard for me to believe that He really DOES want to give me "the desires of my heart" as I....yes again...."trust and obey" Him.) I'm so glad we're in this thing called life together Debbie, we can pray for each other as we walk through are a very much loved sister.

Dear Debbie,
I can see why you must miss your cabin in Flagstaff. It's kind of "Little Norway with a royal castle in it.
The memories are yours forever.
Like when we make great travels. we don't own what we see, but indeed, the memories are for keeps and joy so long our memory will last.

I share your sorrow over your loss, but can also see, you have had some very good days.
I hope you will be able to travel and see other parts of the Lord's wonderful creature.
You know the old saying,"When the lord closes a door, He opens a window.

I send you the wonderful pslam my mother phoned me this evening. A great comfort to me.
Psalms Chapter 23

1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul; He guideth me in straight paths for His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me; {N}
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; {N}
Thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; {N}
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

From Felisol
