During the last year I have had the opportunity to work with Bishop Steven Biegler. I can only imagine what it must have been like for him to arrive in Cheyenne and hear things such as, "We want to buy that building across the street. What do you think?" Who would want to walk into that type of conversation upon one's arrival in a new place? Congratulations bishop on "surviving" your first year as a bishop. Only 16 more years to go!
Other bishops have passed through Cheyenne during my time here as well. Unfortunately, I do not have pictures of all those encounters. However, I would be remiss not to mention Bishop Ricken. I have had the pleasure of visiting with him on a few occasions when he has returned to the diocese for special events. I wish I would have been in Cheyenne a few years earlier so I could have also worked with him. Since the timing did not match up accordingly, I will be grateful for the brief times we have been able to visit at these other occasions.
The blessings of my time in Wyoming are immense. All of the photos are a reminder of just how magnificent these years have been. I am grateful that I have been blogging for five years and will be able to return to these memories from time to time at the click of a mouse. God is good!
