thankful: 11.10.12

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to enjoy Hluhluwe Game Reserve with Ryne and Amy and their friends Tarryn and Josh. We left at four in the morning and arrived home again after eight in the evening, but it was well worth it!

On Saturday, I gave thanks for:
1. Ryne, who drove ALL DAY! He also managed to spot things before anyone else. Impressive!

2. A super rare sighting of African painted dogs almost immediately upon arriving.

3. Safety on the road. We managed to change a flat without getting eaten or kicked out of the park for being out of the car. I’m also very thankful for safety on a very harrowing drive home again.

4. Dozens and dozens of elephants! I’m thankful that we made it through a herd of 30-40 without incident. 

5. Each unique display of God’s beauty and creativity.
