Run for the Volcanoes

This morning we took a break from our team meetings and morning devo times to leave the metro area for a bit. We tried to go up the road to Paso de Cortez, to the area between the volcanoes, but as we suspected it was blocked by a police vehicle and blockade not far from Amecameca, past San Pedro.

So we turned around and ate a late breakfast at the Hacienda Panoaya, a nice place with a restaurant, petting zoo, zip wire, maze and more. Here are a couple of pics.

 Co-worker Jim and I are home alone with the kids, with our wives on the way to a three-day women's retreat. Your prayers would be appreciated!

Quote of the Day: It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long, we are in some degree, helping each other to one or other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilization-these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit-immortal horrors or everlasting splendors. C.S. Lewis, Weight of Glory
