But as many received Him, to them He gave th e right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
I’ll say this for Vermont: it’s gorgeous. They’ve got beautiful mountains, rolling hills, bubbling brooks, and quaint towns and farms (we stayed on one of these in an amazing house). I seriously can’t rave enough about how gorgeous Vermont was. We drove in after dark, and didn’t really gather a true appreciation for its scenic power until the next morning. The house we all stayed in was perched on the top of a hill, offering sweeping views of the small farmed valley edged on all sides with taller hills (mountains?). Outside took my breath away at all times of the day – golden in the morning and evening, bright and sparkling and autumnal during the day.
