For two weeks our family is retreating in Pendleton County, West Virginia in a cabin high atop the Allegheny mountains.
My dad’s parents were originally from here, and even retired here after having long careers in Richmond, VA. Having visited this area a lot throughout my life, I’ve always wanted to spend extended time in these parts because I believe it’s one of the most beautiful areas in the US.
The purpose of this trip is multi-facetted. It’s first and foremost a retreat for the entire family – a chance to strip back the hustle and bustle of life and spend time with God and each other. I’m also doing a little recon and meeting with a local church planter because I believe God wants to plant a church here and has tapped me to pull the resources together to make it happen.
It’s really hard to not be inspired by everything we’re stumbling across, and I hope to share a little bit of it with you guys.
Driving around the area yesterday, we realized we were just around the corner from Green Bank, WV, home of the Green Bank Telescope. It was worth the extra few minutes.
I hope you’ll find these colors helpful on your next project. Click on the image for a larger version.
