Praise God for answering countless prayers – ours and yours! We have finished packing (all but the final trip to France) and finished our degrees! Slick said it seems like the monkeys have been leaping off my back. I’d like to say I feel the weight just lifted away – and I do – in everything except running 🙂 Did I mention we’re training for the 2500th anniversary of the original marathon, run on the original course? There’s never a dull day…

Seriously, we have begun the deep sigh of completion. We’ll feel like we have totally relaxed once we settle in to Albertville, France and stop moving! We really do appreciate your prayers. God has been extremely generous and gracious. He even gave us another little coincidence last week when we filled in the last line of our mileage log with the last leg of our journey. He is a God of the entire universe and yet a God of the details. We worship Him!

The view from the cabin that our very generous friends allowed us to stay in for three weeks while we sorted our stuff. In yet another "coincidence" their renter broke her lease just before we arrived...
