When I saw this car I knew that I had to take pictures with it even though I didn’t pack anything fabulous to compliment the setting. It was one of those treasures that you just don’t want to pass up. My dear friend Paige graciously did some asking for me and we were kindly given permission to use this classy car for some fun pictures. Maybe there is a little part of my heart that has a fondness for a sweet ride… I wish I could get in that little blue car and drive off an adventure. Do you ever get wanderlust? It seems to be a constant longing in my heart. This desire to just…go. Windows down and music playing or just silence and beautifully rugged terrain to take my breath away. Yet maybe it’s the very longing of my heart to go that needs to be reminded to just…be. Last week I had the house to myself and I scheduled in lot’s of time to do nothing. There were no plans at all and I just cozied up for a good staycation. And then I did something I haven’t done in a long time. No, not a crazy party but I did decide to turn off my phone and ignore emails and Facebook. I wanted to just be. I wanted a whole day with just Jesus. Maybe that sounds crazy to you but he’s my best friend. Yet often I don’t treat him like a best friend. I don’t take the time to just enjoy being with him. I’ve been missing out. Friday though was a soul refreshing day. So much so that I’m tempted to start taking one day a week to “unplug”. Do you ever get caught up in the crazy running around of life? Does life ever take you on a merry go round ride that’s not so merry? How do you slow down? I’d love to hear how you all manage life ’cause I sure don’t have it all figured out!
On another note would you join me in something? My sister Paige and her husband Sean had a sweet little baby named Jaya (pictured above) this year and she’s only six months old. Sadly our little love bug needs heart surgery on the 15th of this month. If you’re the praying type will you please pray for her and her parents? It would mean so much to me if you would. I love these three SO much and they are an incredible family who constantly gives out to others. We all trust that Jesus will be near to them and give a safe surgery and recovery!
If you haven’t seen this would you please consider watching it? It really only is a minute!
