10 things I am loving right now

1) The Color Purple---my favorite color (not the movie)
Mike is known for getting me practical as opposed to romantical gifts for Valentine's.
These purple running shoes are my V-day gift and I wouldn't have wanted anything more.

2) and I guess I love the color red too, since I love my Toms shoes
Check our their website, if your not familiar.
What a great idea for a business: with every pair of shoes you purchase, Toms will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.

Tim Keller is the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian in NYC and the author of several incredible books. The only one that I have read so far is "Reason for God". It has been so encouraging, enjoyable to listen to his sermons on my long commutes for work. They are free downloads on Itunes. You can click on the link below to find them. I love how the Gospel is interwoven into every message he preaches. It's truth, and I am loving it.

4) Reading & Learning

The Book of Isaiah & Bible Study Fellowship
Isaiah is not a book of the Bible I knew much about. I have been blown away by the truths of the Gospel message in this book. Learning more and more about the character of God and his rich love for us. He is the ONLY TRUE GOD, there is no other.

and I Just finished reading The Secret Life of Bees. SO good.

5) Hot tea, so refreshing, and i don't need to spend money at Starbucks to enjoy it.

"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea."
Bernard-Paul Heroux
1900's Basque philosopher

6) Our kids
lately we fill our cold winter days with super heroes, dance parties, UNO, library books, legos, and hot wheels. It has been such a treat to listen to Caeden read books to us also.

7) Words with Friends
it's a really addicting scrabble game on the iphone. my best score yet is 128 points on one word. However, I never can seem to beat Mike.

8) My hubby
we are being stretched as individuals and as a couple. In some ways our roles have reversed since Mike is the "stay at home dad" during the two days a week that I am working. I am so blessed to spend my life with a man who loves me, takes care of me, encourages me, and laughs with me. I am so proud of him and how passionately he is following God's calling on his life.

9) LC
at 35 yrs of age, I can now successfully drive a stick shift.
Many attempts and continual stalls are behind me, I am now free to cruise the town-hills, lights, and all. First gear was my nemesis. But, this Lovely Lady, "LC" as we call her, has stuck with me and is now my friend. (p.s. Caeden snapped this photo of me).

10) The perfect yoga panty from Victorias Secret. Love 'em.

While I love being a PT and am so thankful for my new job, this is what I miss.

Mike sent me a txt with this picture. The boys built themselves a spaceship out of wood and Owen was the driver. How I adore them and their creativity. It makes me sad that I missed out on this fun while I was driving all over the county seeing home health patients today.
These two bring me JOY!
