Onto the American Southwest manana!!!
MOSAIC CANYON, DEATH VALLEY
I have started a number of blog entries since my last one, but have failed to finish any one topic since they all seem to keep building on top of another with more recent events (such as the events rapidly escalating around the indictment of Sudan Pres. Omar al-Bashir). But is it our role as Christians to always be in the reactionary seat towards world events, or are we to speak out in the midst of them and partner with God in prayer to see change realized? I hope all can answer the latter....
And, yet, I struggle to put out intended posts in a timely fashion. Lord, help me. Thankfully, my lack of discipline in this does not bring the end of the world.
Anyhow, I am gonna get up this post because I will be out of the B'ham hometown for a week as I head down with my father and a gang of his buddies to brave the elements in the canyons of Zion National Park, Escalante and possibly even Death Valley, California (if the weather turns rough in southern Utah--it has definitely been a long, cold winter).
I plan on posting some photos of my canyoneering debut adventure when we return, and hope you will enjoy...and don't worry, I will exercise much caution so as not to put my bride-to-be in an awkward solo position at the altar. Speaking of Thandeka, isimomo sami (my beautiful girl), I want to wish her a relaxing, stress-free 27th b-day today!
