Thankful for meeting this dear friend 15 years ago. She has invested much time and love into my life and taught me not only her language of ASL, but much about The Lord. Happy Birthday friend!!

Had the privilege of watching my baby girl perform last week. Thankful for the doors The Lord has opened for her,
(One of our favorite reads was "The Day the Crayons Quit").
It appears the 'reading seeds' were planted by Mimi as I received this text from them the other day:

As the saying goes, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." I am so very thankful for this current season in my life where The Lord has given me my heart's desire concerning my job. For years I was a stay-at-home wife and homeschooling mom. I knew those days would end and they did--too quickly I might add. The Lord was gracious to me and opened doors I never dreamed would open for me. I have gone places I never dreamed I would go, traveled places I've never been, met some of the most amazing people and translated some of the most interesting topics imaginable!! It is my prayer and desire to glorify Him in all that I do, including my work.

Though my outward tent is wearing away with aches and pains I am thankful they are minor issues. I praise The Lord for good health and the ability to work and be active. I went 42 plus years of my life not working out. Two summers ago I was encouraged (note sarcasm) by my specialist to get active. I needed to find something I enjoyed and just do it. So I decided to get my beach cruiser bike out the shed and go for a spin. That was the best decision I could have made for my overall health. It's been two year and a new bike later I still enjoy my bike time. I love the wind in my hair as I peddlle as fast as I can down the hill like I'm racing Lance Armstrong. Makes me feel like a kid again. It makes me laugh. Stress melts away and it helps with my pain management.
Most importantly I use the time to prayer cycle. I pray for the houses and neighborhoods as I ride around the streets. My faithful two wheeled friend and I have a good Ol time prayer cycling through my area. Each ride ends with no regrets.
