Today is Dave's 59th birthday!
These pictures were taken just yesterday in Switzerland, where he took Claire and a friend to hike in the Alps over the week-end.
It's been a dream of Claire's for several years to do a backpacking trip in the area above Lauterbrunnen, and after a year on the calendar, that dream came true, despite all the restrictions across Europe. Thankfully Switzerland's borders were still open so they were able to go.
I've only seen a few pictures so far, but from what I've seen, it was quite an epic hike!
They spent three nights in huts throughout this part of the Alps, soaking in God's magnificent design in this part of the world.
On this 59th birthday, three things come to mind that I love about Dave, represented in this hiking trip.
He loves his family and consistently invests time and energy into those relationships that mean so much to him.
He is an adventurer at heart and is always up for another one, especially if it involves being with people he loves!
And finally...Dave has deep faith in our big God, and being in Switzerland is one of his happiest places to be as it reminds him moment by moment while hiking, of just how great and awesome God is!
Happy Birthday dearest Dave!! I celebrate you with all my heart today! ❤️
