Taking a page from Bill Clinton's campaign team, "It's the economy, stupid," I was reminded repeatedly on this trip that it's the people that make it all meaningful. I was blown away (literally and figuratively!) by the windswept beauty of Valley of the Rocks, but spending time with these special people that God put into our path was what made the trip so remarkable. I needed to write this all down, because it's so easy for me to get caught up with the next task or project, and neglect to enjoy the people along the way. Praying that God continues to remind me that only people and His Word are eternal, so I should intentionally spend more time with both.
