We arrived in Queenstown today after coming through thick, thick cloud and a tonne of turbulance… we couldn’t see anything at all out of the window except cloud until about only one minute before we touched down! Thankfully we were flying with Air New Zealand who apparently are the only airline that doesn’t have the problems that other airlines have flying into Queenstown in low visibility because it is surrounded with mountains.
I am feeling very blessed right now… we have a gorgeous suite which overlooks Lake Wakatipu and the mountains, Craig had organised for flowers in our room on arrival and I am loving the nice chilly weather. We have also already been shopping and stocked the cupboard for the week and included is a tub of creamy NZ Jelly Tip ice cream…my fav!
But apart from all of that, after hanging out in town this afternoon and chatting with the friendly locals (good old NZ hospitality) Craig and I are both gratefully thanking God for his awesome favour. Today when we flew in it was a bit rainy which of course means that it should be snowing on the mountains…. And it was. We heard that they actually hadn’t had any snow for over two weeks and that the snow had already turned to slush because it had been so warm but since this morning with it snowing all day tomorrow is going to be a ‘powder day’ at The Remarks…whoo hoo! God is so awesome…his timing is just the best and we are both so amazed that our prayers have been answered.
I guess we shouldn’t really be surprised though because God wants everyone of us to walk in His favour all the time and loves to see us happy and enjoying life just like any Dad wants to see their children happy and blessed.
