Murphy's Place

Nancy Murphy has been trying to get me out to bless their cabin for years. Well, the stars finally aligned this Sunday. After Mass in Moorcroft she jumped in the truck and showed me the way to their place on the east side of Key Hole Reservoir. 


Beautiful area. Where we stand looks right down upon the their cabin and the spread of the lake. This area is also the beginning of the Black Hills of Wyoming. 


You don't want to take your mother's Buick down this road. And if it rains, you might want to call in sick for work. 


They had a big family get together this weekend to celebrate Nancy's 90th birthday.  


Nancy says she "refuses to act her age."


The cabin is set up for family fun. Many bedrooms and plenty of room for kids to run.


Grandpa Tom, who passed away within the last couple of years, built this grotto to honor our Blessed Mother. Nancy and him have always been so faithful. Now I know why. 


The water is definitely the main source of entertainment. 


In her younger years, Nancy was quite the water skier. She figures that over the years Tom and her taught some 500 people how to water ski. 


The great grand kids are easily entertained. 


To top off a good afternoon, I even got a boat tour around Key Hole. 


Nice.

The priesthood is an adventure. I really never quite know what the next day is going to bring. But one thing I can guarantee is that it won't be boring. I love it. Accepting an invitation to bless Nancy Murphy's cabin just opened the door for a pretty fun afternoon. God has a mission for us to accomplish. But He also want us to have fun in the process. On to the next one.
