Bloom Where You Are Planted

A Post from John...

 When I first read this phrase, it struck me with the thought that the place where you and I find ourselves in this vast world has been ordained by God’s sovereign will. It may be in a major city with millions of people, or a very rural town with people few and far between. It may be in a different country with mountains all about or even in a flat, dry desert region. Countless possibilities. It’s where God has ‘planted’ us and His good intentions are for us to prosper and thrive where ever we find ourselves.

Classic Pimm's Cup with Sherlock Homes and Doctor Who Stops around the City

"You have to have a Pimm's Cup and toast me from London!" That was our instructions from a friend when we shared about our upcoming trip introducing us to the iconic drink of Britain. To oblige our friend we made sure to seek out and try this colorful beverage made with Pimm's liqueur, lemonade and plenty of fruit stirred in.

From Joy to Sorrow ~ London Bridge Attack

Our morning began with continued exuberance and anticipation as we followed our itinerary for another action-packed day in London, England. A day planned for beautiful experiences made the likelihood of anything unpleasant happening seem impossible much less receiving news of a horrific attack at London Bridge later this evening.

Keep Calm and Love London

We weren't really calm at all but actually quite excited. And loving London is easy. This was our second trip to this lovely city, across the pond and we were thrilled to be going to London, England again. This time with two of our adult children and our oldest grandson. A little more confident in our international travel experience and our ability to navigate airport flights and customs as well as the tube and underground, took away much of our first-time anxiety. Once again we would be experiencing the history, art and culture that is so abundant at every corner we turned. Added to all of this, we would be enjoying it through the eyes of our kids.
