Sunday Thoughts

Love where I live…

It’s been an exciting week for me, with lots of changes I will talking about next week. Overall good things that have come from hard work and excellent leadership examples.

Today I needed to rest, and take this in. Tomorrow will be busy, but ready for the opportunity that it brings.

Blessings!

Hello Fresh Meals

We were given a week of meals from a friend from Hello Fresh.  We chose the two person meal plan with three meals for the week.

I loved that the box was prepackaged per meal.  I didn’t have to sort or figure out what ingredient went with what protein.  It was also packaged with recycled foam instead of Styrofoam which made my heart happy.  Overall, I was extremely please with the packaging of the fresh ingredients.The sizing of the portions were perfect for David and I.  He eats more than a normal serving, and I can’t eat a whole serving.  Perfect.

I will post on each of the meals the rest of the week.

Blessings.

Thread

An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance.  The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.  May you be open to each thread that comes into your life —the golden ones and the coarse ones —and may you weave them into a brilliant and beautiful life.

Thankful for the golden and coarse threads in my life journey.

Blessings!

Sunday Thought

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.

I miss Fall in Northwest Arkansas.  Fall in Florida, well, it was 92 degrees yesterday.  David and I went to the beach.  It was beautiful, and I am very grateful to be able to live here.  I really do love Fall here.  It is still warm enough to enjoy the beach (even get into the water), and it is a lot less crowded than in summer.The water was crystal clear, and a nice breeze.  It was just nice to sit and enjoy the sound of the waves.  This is something I normally do with Carmen.  David hates the sand, and would rather stay indoors or go to the mountains.  I don’t blame him.  But I love it here.I just miss trees that turn a color other than brown.  I miss the crisp air in the evenings.  I miss this…  Oh, I know, that I should be grateful, and I am very grateful to live where most people come for their vacations.  I just need to see this again in person.  Fall.  Trees with colors, yellow, orange, and bright reds.

Fall NWARK

Maybe next year we will travel to Northwest Arkansas for the turning of the leaves.  I would love to do that again.

What is your favorite season, and why?

Blessings.

Well, God came through, and our friend came.  He was able to hop onto (David’s words) the roof, and just fix everything.  Apparently, a squirrel decided he liked our shingles so much that he ate through the part of the roof’s ridge line.  We will wait out the repair, and hopefully the rains will prove Travis’ work strong and durable.

Friends are amazing when God places them in your path.  It had been over a year since we had spoken with Travis and Jess, and there was not one pause about coming to help.  Helping when able (even when you aren’t really able) is such a blessing to both the giver and the receiver.   They wouldn’t take anything for payment, and if had been reversed, we wouldn’t have either.

Overwhelmed by God’s grace.  Please continue to pray for us and we tighten our belts, and stick to what needs to be done instead of what we want.

Blessings for this Monday, and always.

So very grateful for all of them in my life.
