May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. ~Ps 19:14 (NIV)

thanks givings...

 ~ Enjoying this spectacular view over dinner with my hubby! Life just doesn't get any better.


~ My mom and dad arriving back in this time zone. It's so good to have them back home for six months, and only a four-hour drive away. 


~ Seeing the excitement on my hubby's face the closer we got to the NASCAR race track. 


~ Finding our rental car after the race. The ten mile hike, combined with an eighty-eight degree sun burning on our backs, just melted those pounds away. Great exercise program, hubby!


~ Passing a major milestone yesterday. That big ole "50" marker had been staring me in the face for a few months, giving me a kick in the gut every so often. Now that it's passed, I can get on with my life, enjoying precious memories of where I have been, cherishing every moment of where I am, and relishing where I am headed.


What about you? What are your thanks givings today?

14 years of marriage:) Congrats on your bday--those #'s can kick us every once in awhile, can't they! You look fantastic and I love the smiles.

Hope you enjoyed the race! Wish Junior would have done a little better, but...

Happy Birthday!

Thankful for the rain we've received.

Aww, Susan, congratulations on 14 years. That's awesome. Thanks! I did a good job editing out the wrinkles around the neck. lol

Hey Sandra. We enjoyed the race. Well, we did until Junior blew a tire, then hubby started mumbling under his breath. But Tony Stewart ~ whose shop is in Kannapolis ~ won, so it's all good.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, ladies. Enjoy your week!

Love the pictures! And a big Happy Birthday to you! Celebrating? God's goodness for answered prayer in a family matter! And His patience with me while I resisted trying to 'fix' the situation! Have a blessed week, Dora!

Hey Maria. Thanks! Praise God for answered prayers! And for His patience. What would we do without that? Thanks for stopping by today.
