Recently, my husband, Grant, and one of our daughters paid a long overdue, Covid-delayed trip to New Zealand where my husband was born and raised. On their last day there, they visited the beautiful place where Grant spent his formative years. Imagine a unique house built by my father-in-law, set in stunning scenery with a beach at the front and a river with swimming holes behind–as close to idyllic as a childhood can be! It was a revelation to my daughter who commented, ‘Now I understand Dad!’
I loved reading the thoughts on the benefits and joy of travel in this newsletter. I doubt that I'll travel this summer, unless God surprises me with an opportunity I'm not expecting! My joyful travel experience was in February. I left for Israel with a group of 19 from our church on Valentine's Day. What a blessed experience! It was such a whirlwind tour, though, that I want to return to spend more time contemplating all that I learned. I pray that I am given the opportunity to return someday soon!
Really enjoyed this newsletter. Thanks, Sage Team! My husband and I live in the Great Smoky Mountains, but are currently vacationing on Cape Cod where we raised our family. Then we’re heading to our 42nd annual weeklong family reunion in West Virginia. We love to travel too, although home is always our favorite destination.
Loved this, Rachel!
