WA: Stories & Scenery

Once upon a time...

...way back in January, the Dewar family invited us to come visit them at their home in the "wild west". At the time, the thought was promptly put on the backburner - so when it actually happened six months later, we were all in a state of complete shock. At least, I was. ;-)

After much praying, consideration and planning, we decided to make the journey across Australia to visit its Western state! Amelia and I were going to be a part of the Children's Institute team as well (my first ever interstate CI!). Everyone was verrrry excited, and it promised to be a truly amazing trip.

Then our friends, the Tiger Airways company - decided to close down two days before we were leaving. Now we had a big problem on our hands - we no longer had flights! Needless to say, this was a *slight* hitch in our plans! We eventually decided that if God wanted us to get to WA, then He would have to make a way for us. By our human reasoning (mosquito logic, anyone?!), it looked impossible. But God had a bigger plan...

And less than two days later, we were on a plane headed for Perth. :-)

{Warning: if you've ever been to WA - excuse me for a moment while I rave about it...}
{Perth is beaaaaaaautiful...}
{And picturesque - look at that old windmill!}
{The weather is amazing... ignore the quality of the photo and focus on the rainbow, instead :P}
{The farm is awesome...}
{The people are pretty awesome, too... but more on them, later!}
{The Dewar farm's front gate, which we long-suffering visitors had to open every time we drove through...}
{Their driveway - note the upside-down 110 speed limit?! I think *certain* people did well over that on certain occasions... (no, it wasn't me - and I wasn't in the car risking my life, either! :P)}
{The stables...}
And that's all for the present! but don't worry... many, many more posts on WA are on their way! :-)

I've been 'Westernized'...

... or so I've been told! ;-)

Yes, I've been away (and yes, I've been back for some time but let's disregard that point for the moment :D), and yes, I am fully intending to blog soon. In fact, I have so many photos from our WA trip (waaaaaaay over 1,000 of them!) that I've decided to do an entire series of posts for you to enjoy! So, keep an eye out for those in the [near] future! In the meantime, I thought I'd post a photo I took the other day...

so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11}
