Once upon a time....
Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

We (the kids and I) are gearing up to intentionally travel east to the hot and humid state of Missouri to visit family and friends. When I was a kid, our family headed west about this time each summer in search of the great Rocky Mountains, cooler weather and pine trees. Occasionally, we would spot a Colorado license plate heading east, and every time, I would say "you're going the wrong way! ". Now I find myself in the same situation, only this time, I'm in the Colorado car heading east. Now I know what those crazy people were willing to go east for: family, relationships, time by the pool, late nights with Aunt, Uncle, cousins and Grandpa.
Can't wait to hit the road and go east!

Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans...
I had plans of what I thought life was supposed to look like, however, the life I thought I wanted didn't end up being the life that was waiting for me.
Check it out:
Art major -> speech pathologist
Two kids -> FIVE kids
My mom here on earth for a long time -> she died at age 66
Living in Missouri, next to my dad, around the corner from my sister -> living in Colorado, 600 miles away from them
There are more examples... too many to count or type!
So, what's my point? As a believer, my goal is to live a life that brings Him glory. When I get stuck in my own vision, my own expectations and plans, I miss the mark. I have an amazing Good who loves me and looks out for me. HE has great plans for me that are WAY better than I could ever dream. I think from now on, I'll just look toward the horizon and enjoy the life!

We have lived here in Colorado for two years, so we decided it was about time that we took the kids skiing. One off our kiddos has no interest in such things (Beti), so we made arrangements for her to spend the night and the next day with a friend. We headed out early in the morning with four very excited kids!
We arrived at Monarch Mountain, checked in, got our gear and dropped the kids of at ski school. Bob and I hit the slopes for the first time in 20+ years. We were pretty impressed with ourselves that we got on and off the lift without falling. It was such a beautiful day and a wonderful thrill to ski again. That was until I had a "yard sale" on the slope! I wiped out good! Or bad? As it turns out, I ruptured my ACL. The kids had a great time skiing. They can't wait to go back. I, on the other hand, will have surgery on April 28th and rehab the dickens out of my knee and be ready to get out there again next season.
The blessing? It has forced one of our littles to branch out a bit, be flexible and handle change. Blessings

Variated Diamonds Belt
This piece is handcrafted of sustainable seeds by artisans in Ecuador who provide employment opportunities for their community. The artisans are also shareholders in the company. "Our life has been difficult, but our children will have a better future”
Clusters of freshly sprouted bundles of hand dyed cotton gather for artistic measure. Handwoven and then dyed from natural plants that grow near the magical region of Lago de Atitlan. Our Noonday team had the pleasure of working with the women in San Juan de Atitlan, learning the natural dying process of this scarf. The scarf is made by a cooperative of women who share a passion to continue the heirloom weavings of the Mayan people.
