Winding Down

My sister, bro, and the boys are only here for a couple more weeks. The time has gone so fast! I just can't believe how precious my nephews are! I think my heart is going to break when they are gone. Even just a few days without them and the house seemed so empty it was scary! It was too quiet and it felt strange to actually sleep in a BED! But right now I'm going to forget about that moment when they leave, and I'm going to enjoy my next few weeks on the blow-up mattress and more important, my time with my amazing sister and those dear boys!

Adventures in Life

I visited a church with my sister this past weekend. Something the pastor said got me thinking. He said the Christian life is never dull or boring. When we live in total, wild, crazy abandon for Christ, we are living a great adventure. We never know what a day can bring. It can be delightful, fun, relaxing, filled with joy and good things. Or a day can be hard, tiring, stressful, even tragic. But it all comes from the hand of a good God who loves me. And the exciting part is, I never know what comes next, or what to expect when I wake up in the morning and lift my head off of my pillow. I have chosen this journey and I will continue it with a smile as I think about the future. How about you?
