island of color

Yet another weekend of awesome sights, unforgettable experiences, warm hospitality ... I didn't want to leave!  To have the privilege of being apart of such a special weekend (Matt's cousin's wedding), on such a special island (P.E.I.), made me feel like one special girl (which I was!!).  If there was one thing I could hone in on about this 'gem of an isle', it would be the impressing array of vivid color.  Red fertile soil serving as the undercurrent of this island's color palette, ready to cultivate potatoes, luscious greens freshly sprouted, perfectly placed, blue skies broadened overhead with blue ocean waters touching it's horizon, weathered greys whispering stories through wooden boards of buildings past ...

... take me back!!

stand by

Stand-by ... as I sit here at the gate in Austin, crossing my fingers for my coveted seat to get me home, I'm realizing that alot of my time is spent wishing I were elsewhere or at least "moving along".  Much like this drop of rain that awaits it's debuted splash on the ground, my life sometimes feels in a holding position ... either on the verge of some inaugural event or anticipating the completion of a long due project.  "Am I there yet?!" ... seems to be a question that will never get old!

"Do not be anxious about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.  Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.  His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:6-7

God is God.  Who else can say, do not worry?  Is there any other that you can thank who has provided for your every need?  Only He can promise peace, and actually give it.

desert gems

Here are a few details I picked up on my recent trip to Mesa.  I'm so grateful that I could extinguish this busy spell with a much needed time of r&r ... sleeping, reading, sleeping, and eating!  Only a month left of this crazy schedule.  I won't be in and out of town every three weeks and hopefully I'll have made a decision for what my work schedule is going to look like.  Don't think I've ever been so excited to see June!!
