I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

Heading West!

We are headed to the cooler weather of San Diego this weekend to celebrate Tracy's Grandma's 98 years of life.  "Granny-Great" as she was known by many, lived a strong and productive life and touched many people. 

Granny-Great and Our Stephanie!

As we gather around the graveside to celebrate her life, there will be tears of happiness and sadness as we all know that we will see her again someday in Heaven.

Tracy writes a weekly devotion in her job at our church, the following is her tribute to Granny-Great in this week's devotion:

The Givers
Readings:  Genesis 50:15-21 / Romans 12:14-21 / Luke 6:36-42
Our reading from Luke includes this verse that reminded me of my sweet grandma. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” She gave food from her restaurant during the depression, gave wonderful care to her family, started Bible studies and crafting groups everywhere she lived, made lap robes and prayer shawls, card wreaths and soup for the hurting; she collected hundreds of teddy bears to give away, and I could go on…she lived her faith and loved her Lord. In her case, her giving was measureless and the Lord rewarded her in kind for 98 years. Yes, she suffered loss and disease as well as the miracles and blessings, yet she walked hand-in-hand with her Giver every day. Give…and hold tight to the One that gave His life for you.

In addition to our celebration, I am very much looking forward to hydrating and enjoying temperatures that will be 30 degrees cooler than Scottsdale. 

Hopefully I will have some great adventures to share with you when we return. I hope your week is going great and thanks for stopping by!
