A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Sunday, Sept. 16, 2007 — Almighty God, You who know all things,

May those who lost their homes last Wednesday be able to have new homes, and may those whose homes were damaged receive what they need for repairs. May everyone who has been lacking in the basics of life receive the food, water, and other essentials that they need.

May those of us who were frightened receive a deeper sense of Your presence and comfort.

May those of us who have been providing assistance be given further strength to continue working as the story becomes old news. May all in government, all in San Juan Cosala, all in nearby communities, and all who live far away be guided to assist in whatever ways are appropriate to their abilities and situations.

Thank you that there was no loss of life, and thank you that those with injuries are receiving care. Thank you that the deluge happened at a time of day when few were on the streets. Thank you for the loving assistance that has come and will continue to come to San Juan Cosala and the Raquet Club.

May everyone who has been connected with this event learn from it whatever lessons are appropriate for them. Help us to remember that distinctions such as rich/poor, male/female, Mexican/foreign are small beside the fact of our essential Oneness and connectedness.

Understanding that the powerful forces of nature which we saw this week are a part of the spiritual laws by which all operates, we offer our prayers for the further safety of our community as the rainy season continues.

For those of us who are of the Christian faith, we ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ and in the name of our beloved Virgin of Guadalupe. For those of us other faiths, or of no particular faith, we ask this in ways that are appropriate to us.

And may we go about our days with a sense of joy in Your presence. Amen.
