A Verse to Live By

I received this daily Word on the Way on December 31, 2016 through WAY-FM and this one really made an impact on me. I’ve been relying on God’s strength for so long that I was holding my breath in the hopes that things were starting to turn around.  This Word on the Way has been wonderful encouragement for me. I printed it and put on my lamp on my desk at work as a constant reminder that God has the best intentions for me and my life. 2017 is going to be a great year!  I look back on the past nearly five months and I am in awe with all of the new things that have happened. He is indeed making a pathway through the wilderness!

The Lake Was Calling

What was once the mountains calling have since been replaced by the lake. When my parents sold their place in Keystone, CO, I’ll admit that I was disappointed. But the 9+ hour drive was a pain and not easy and they wanted something closer to home. I don’t blame them. As much as I loved going, the drive was a nuisance and basically 2 days of traveling nixed any short trips away. This past summer I went with them to Rogers, Arkansas where they ultimately bought a place in Bella Vista, right on the lake.  Since I was recovering from IT issues from my marathon, it was the perfect time to get out of town. I even took a vacation day from work so I could stay a little longer.  Oh, and this was the ultimate craft weekend, too!

Morning Bible study/reading on the dock watching the sun rise. I do studies through felicitybee where she has monthly themes and readings/writings. I love them! If you have a chance to check them out, please do!

My Dad and I

It was a lovely weekend and I can see why my parents love it here so much. I’m looking forward to another weekend away soon where next time I can bring my fur babies!
