  1. I can’t tell you how happy I am that you are finding such joy in Arizona! Such confirmation that this is exactly where God wants you to be. You’ve taken to it like a duck to water, or maybe a lizard to sand?! So glad you got to see the beauty of Sedona and The Grand Canyon. God’s creation is truly a thing to behold!
