Florida Baby

I did it! I flew all the way to Florida without a panic attack.

That my friends is a major accomplishment. I listened to my I-pod and played mindless DS games throughout the entire flight.

Before I left, Hunter prayed that the flight would be 25 minutes faster than scheduled. I love when my kids pray.

The Lord almost never says no to them. The flight was 24 minutes faster than scheduled. it wasn't exactly 25 minutes but seriously...I'd say 24 is close enough.

I can now rest assured I am back on the ground an in control...Hah! Hah! Lesson learned. I am so not in control of...well...anything...

Imagine that! ;0!

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
