Don called me at 11am PDT to tell me he was in the float plane in Victoria Harbor, and they were just cleared for takeoff. The weather was bad throughout yesterday until late this morning, when there were nothing but blue skies between Victoria and Malibu. So by now, Heather and boys should have had their big surprise. What a delight. They’re scheduled to come back tomorrow, so it is just a short jaunt. But what a joy that it actually happened.

At the time Don called me I was in the Houston airport catching a flight back to Seattle. I tried to do this blog from my treo phone, but it didn’t work. I’m now back home, and haven’t unpacked my bags yet — I wanted you all to know the good news.

Skip, for D & H

    Hello this is Janice Prittie, we housed Don and Karen(the pilot) here at our house in Victoria last night. We received an anxious phone call just before dinner from Karen stating that she was stranded here in the city with a passenger…….you all know the story….What a remarkable journey, we have been deeply moved by your situation and feel that God calls us to meet others needs when we least expect it…Please know that we are praying for you….it was a delight to do this for you…..our love to all of you at Malibu and all of you who are involved in this wonderful mans’s life. In Him, Janice

    Linda and I are so happy this trip was pulled off! I can just picture the faces of Heather and the boys as you got off the plane!

    Quote number three from “Everything Belongs”-

    “[But how are we taught to see?] The most important way is to live and fully accept our reality…. to reverence the real. This will not feel very spiritual… thus most run to more esoteric postures… instead of bearing the mystery of God’s suffering and joy inside themselves.”
