Road Tripin' - 2009 Blizzard

As most of you know, I went down to SC for Christmas. I was going to blog about the whole adventure but my sister Amy already did, so I'll let you read her recap of our dangerously memorable Road Trip! Unfortunately, the cameras were smashed in the back and as you'll read we couldn't stop to get them out and snap a few pics of the madness! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

You didn't think I'd let the day go by without telling the whole blogging world that it's your special day today did you?!
To the biggest Husker fan I know,
We may not have always been the tidiest kids on the block,
but we sure did have a lot of fun.....
.... who is that young lady, looking oh so cute below?!
....yep you guessed it...

Happy Birthday, Mom!!! I Love you! :D

1000 gifts - A heart of gratitude

Gratitude - a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.
"Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them." -- Psalms 107:15
Today my heart is full of gratitude because.....
0037 - .... You have given me amazing family and friends with tremendous wisdom
0038 - .... You have given me so so so much. Way more than I will ever deserve
0039 - .... Megan will be here at this time next week!!!!!!!!!!!
0040 - .... I live close family (some) and get to love on my little nephew whenever I want to!
0041 - .... You are the redeemer and reconciler of all types of relationships
0042 - .... I know You don't need me, Lord. But even more humbling than that, You amazingly, choose me. again. and again. and again!

1000 Gifts - God's handy work :D

(I know the plan is to do this every Monday but for some reason, I always have too much to do to sit down and put pen to paper, or fingers to keys.... so I'm doing it on Sunday night to start my week off giving gratitude and praise to our God, who is oh so worthy!)

"We give thanks to you, O God,
we give thanks, for your Name is near;
men tell of your wonderful deeds." -- Pslam 75:1

This week I am full of thankfulness - Here's why:
0027 - Spending Thanksgiving on a most beautiful day.....

0028 - ...With some of my favorite people (and missing some too)

0029 - Being on the road for work but getting to see the Candetos and the encouragement they bring JUST at the right moment.

0030 - Community inspiring worship through the season and Christmas Carols being played in every Mall across our country!! (When else does that happen other than CHRISTmas time?!?)

0031 - A fearful, nervous heart made calm when God used the littlest and most peculiar of things, like a Nebraska sweatshirt, to move someone to reach out and give me the words God knew I needed to hear.

0032 - Traveling mercies and LITTLE turbulence!

0033 - The beauty and peacefulness of a first snow as the earth rests and underneath it all is preparing to bring new life....

0034 - Reconnecting with my friends in northern va after traveling for 6 out of the last 8 weeks.... SO FUN (Have you ever played ROCK BAND? I think I know what I want for Christmas!) ;)

0035 - Getting to help Mom with one of her favorite things, decorating for Christmas.

0036 - Being reminded of God's goodness and faithfulness with the sweet, captivating smile of a newborn.... my new nephew of course!

holy experience
