A nice change of a pace after my last three posts!
Here's a Word Association Friday Five, with a bonus twist for those feeling creative. First, for each of these five words -- all of which remind me of my *most* excellent vacation -- share the first word that comes to mind when you read it.
Bonus: Tell us a story that comes to mind based on one of the word pairs.
The one story that comes to mind when I think of Airports is from January 2010. I was on a trip to Gettysburg PA when the news of Wartburg Seminarian Ben Larson's death in the Haiti earthquake broke. Ben's wife Renee and I worked at camp together and she introduced me to Ben and Ben's cousin Jon. We spent the last part of the two weeks grieving with Renee, Jon, the Wartburg Seminary community, etc. While at the airport in Boston (closest airport to Gettysburg) waiting for my flight home, I was listening to my IPOD when Aaron Shust's Song "My Savior, My God" came on! As I listened to the words "We dont always understand what God has willed, what God has planned," I found myself thinking about what had just happened.
