The Elliots

I feel as though this post is a compilation of many thoughts, hopefully not too random. My thinking about Jim and Elisabeth Elliot became more frequent when our dear Roses had the opportunity to meet Elisabeth and her husband Lars. Then the thinking was accelerated when I got to hear the 'live' story from their lips about what it was like to meet such an amazing woman - and what that was like for Katy personally. And then I stumbled upon this article, written a few weeks ago - and it has brought their lives to my mind even more frequently. Goodness, I am far too easily satasfied; I am often content with mudpies. I am so thankful for their lives.
