It has been a VERY long time since I have sat down to do a “Transparent Tuesday” post. It’s not that I haven’t had lots to think about and share with you, it’s just I am a FIRM believer in writing about what the Holy Spirit wants me to write about when He wants me to write it. There are so many times I will start to write something only to delete it instead of publishing it (in retrospect, I should keep them in a word doc from now on, right?)
Any who, these last three days my husband & I have been out of town on a mini sabbatical to plan, prepare, and pray for what God has in store for each of us, our ministries, and our family for 2009. We typically go away the week between Christmas and New Years, but this year we were doubly blessed because my parents offered to take the kids with them on their annual trip to Kentucky after Christmas. This way the kids get to go see their great-grandmother (my g’ma) and also snow, and then Matt & I get some time alone.
We spent our first day just completely chilling out, watching movies, wearing our PJ’s all day, and hanging out with each other. Below is a picture of “my” reading spot. I know, I know, there’s a blanket there, but I wanted you to see just how cozy I get when I curl up (really and truly) with a great book. Besides, it has been “breezy” here on the ocean (the temps been in the low 70’s most of the time).
I’m headed back outside now to go over some more specifics in a creative project that I’m working on, but I wanted to take a minute to show you the view from my “work/dream/planning” spot, isn’t it gorgeous?
I have to tell you…I have a feeling that it’s going to be INCREDIBLE!
