I have a lot of random thoughts today...
Feeling blessed by:
*Citibank's reward points, which are paying for our hotel in Hot Springs.
*My friend is finally getting married...we've dreamed and talked about this day forever! Both of us have wondered if God intended her to marry and now we know the answer. Our family is excited about the upcoming wedding and super-mini vacation.
*God's grace...I need it so often and it's always there.
*Childhood memories of vacationing in Hot Springs-we'll quickly visit a few spots I toured as a child.
Feeling emotional about:
*All my friends starting the kindergarten experience in local schools. I was in town this morning at 7:45 and the roads were just buzzing with school traffic. You could feel the electricity in the air as all the kids started back to school today.
*Being home all day, every day. Bittersweet is the right word. It's nice to be released from the weight of leading a ministry, but I may go stir crazy in the process. Although I've had plenty of planning to do (for school & this trip) I've found myself bored several times this last week. Once school starts next week, I'm sure that will change!
*Beth turning 5 this week...Hope is next and she'll be 8!
Looking forward to:
*School starting (kind of-it's nice to have wide open days!).
*Starting a Beth Moore Bible study-the Fruit of the Spirit-next week.
*Family coming next month!
*Our land to sell soon!
*Shane to be home when this baby comes (it's right around the corner, y'all!)
