Florida Trip- Part One (A Birthday Celebration)

I'm still on vacation, visiting my family in Florida but I'm going to have so many pictures afterwards that I decided I should probably get a head start sharing them now. I arrived in town late Sunday night and Monday happened to be my dad's 49th birthday (perfect timing.) Baby sister baked him a cake and the four of us enjoyed an evening together. It's a weird experience- seeing my dad go through divorce a second time. Especially since I've also been there, now. Luckily, he's found one heck of a lady who enjoys spending time with his family just as much as he does. The four of us made a small but happy birthday party.

I love that this trip has allowed me to see the potential healing power of God. The potential happiness that comes from a family unit that accepts, loves and is kind to one another. The trust I've put in God towards my role within my family. The forgiveness He's helped me work on, softening my heart and allowing me to slowly step in a forward direction.

What has God been working on in your life, lately?

  1. I love small, sweet get-togethers. :) They are usually my favorite.
    God has been helping me learn to align my will with His, instead of trying to change His will to what I have in mind. When I am heading in the same direction that God wants me to go, it is always a righteous direction. I wish that would stick the first time I learn it! -- Instead of having to learn it again and again.


    1. Oh, I totally agree Lynnette. Sometimes it's hard to accept that what we want isn't what He wants for us and that the sooner we let it go, the sooner we can see what great plans he does have for our present and futures :)

  2. I'm glad you had such a nice trip! You and your sister are so lovely. Hugs.
