A Month of Saturdays

Monday, February 02, 2015

I already decided that 2015 is going to be about dreaming, reaching, and breathing. So far, so good!

Along with my new site design, I'm introducing a new series. It's going to be reminiscent of The Scenic Route, but I'm calling it "A Month of Saturdays". Sometime near the beginning of each month, I hope to have a post dedicated to sharing pictures and a few words from the Saturdays of the previous month. Here goes!

January was fabulous!!!! The first part was spent with friends and family on the other side of the country.  It was great to be in the same house as my brother again. Our trip was full of warm welcomes, awesome food, tons of games, geocaching (even with crazy hair because of a storm that we wouldn't let stop us), laughs, and some of the hardest goodbyes (which I prefer to call "see you laters") I've ever said.

The flight back home wasn't an easy one to make...But, we all put our soldier faces on and we're making it! The friends and celebrations waiting for us helped! We rang in Jay's 74th Birthday, my brother's 15th birthday, and have had lots of rain and fog. Being home has made for lots of fun in the kitchen, reading days, movie nights, and PIZZA.

Like I said, January was fabulous! Dreams of moving south were re-awakened. Motivation to reach up and out in every area of my life became real again. The reminder to breathe in the sweet aroma of life as a Christian was placed back in my soul.

God's goodness has overwhelmed me! With the happiest of tears streaming down my face, I look back and I look ahead! January was fabulous because my God is fabulous.

What was January like for you?

What has been the best kind of overwhelming to you lately?

    Rach, her mother's sin is the reason she is here and the reason we live so far away from family. :-/ However, God is good, and in control, so I can say with full assurance that the sting is only temporal.

    Now, Sis, that picture of us after the geostorm...let's evaluate, shall we? I look like the tsunami monster! :-) Though it was a very fun day! Glad for you that most pictures of me are horrid (imo), so the truly 'bad' ones aren't really all that bad! In fact, I look pretty good! (insert laughing crying guy here).


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
