Breaks, Beach, Giveaways, and Meme's

With that title, your bound to already know that this post is a round up of things that have happened, are happening, or are about to happen.

I've been a bit out of the loop lately in blogland. Trust me, I have plenty of good ideas and thoughts going on in my head. But I can't seem to get them out on "paper."

Perhaps it has something to do with CJ being on break. One week from today he starts back up with classes. There is a tiny bit of dread in my voice as I write this. Full time work + full time school +everything else going on = very little time as a family or married couple. Still we are on this journey for good reasons and I trust that God will take care of all our needs.

Of course, I say that, because He already has blessed us with an unexpected get away. No names. But we were given some money and told to do something for ourselves that was fun. It was just enough for us to book 3 nights in a family suite at a resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. The resort is secluded, has an indoor water park, and more. We leave tomorrow. And I am seriously looking forward to just getting away and sitting on the beach. Honestly, sea air really cleans out the cobwebs in my head.

Classic Mama introduced us to this awesome blog, 4 Reluctant Entertainers. She's hosting a fun giveaway, of which I dutifully signed up for. But beyond that, I'm quite excited to start perusing her site and getting some good ideas. I have a "sermon" in my head about conversations, talking with others, and learning how to go deep quickly. Suffice to say, I think that I may find her blog only adding to it! Go check her out.

Finally, Thrills tagged me for the 6 word meme about myself. You are supposed to write a six word memoir about yourself and then post a pic along with it. Help! I found this one tough. But this is what I came up with.

deep, focused, passionate, shows His love

Of course, I'm supposed to tag others on this one. But honestly, everyones been tagged or may be kinda tired of meme's right now. So, if that's not you, then consider yourself tagged and leave me a comment!
