"He is there not only when we cry out from the burden of sin but also when we cry out for any other reason." -Bruce D. Porter

I was awoken this morning by an earthquake!  I've never felt an earthquake before!  I remember waking to feel the house vibrating, but since I was just asleep I wasn't sure what was going on.  So I got up to go to the bathroom and that's when Todd asked me if I felt the house shaking.  Then a few minutes later Kate comes in to our room and asks if we just felt the house shaking.  So we got on the internet, and sure enough!  Our first earthquake.  It's a little unnerving to think how quickly and out of the blue that it happend!

I've got lots to blog about, but no time.  We got back from New York Wednesday night and leave for Utah next Tuesday morning.  I've got a million things to do before then, so if I have a minute, I might post a few pics of our New York trip.  If not, sorry, it won't be until August.  But let me say this:  there's nothing more important than family.  We had a good time in New York and it was lots of fun visiting with all who could make it.  We got to see cousins we have never seen before!  The next time we all meet up will be in two years and this one will be in New Mexico.  So, plan accordingly.   More to come!
