Flint, TX was a bit more realistic.
That’s right. I survived the five days of near internet free living (please note sarcasm). Vacation is good for the soul.
To clarify: vacation means – an act or instance of vacating. To vacate.
That is EXACTLY what we did! We vacated!
We spent Sunday through Friday out in the middle of nowhere in east Texas, on a lake where there happened to be next to no cell or internet service. It’s was like God did it on purpose. The views were beautiful, the trees were pine and the lake went forever.
I’d had every intention on blogging while on vacation. I had some inspiration. I couldn’t do anything with the inspiration but I want to give good intention credit it’s due. Check this out and feel free to call them the cutest thing ever (Joel and Jackie’s Honeymoon blog). Posting was close to impossible for me, so I took my cue from location and did nothing. Thanks God.
We did the following…
Sleep, swim, eat, more swimming, lots of reading, Madagascar 3, more reading, swimming and sleeping. My kids played Wii with Ray, I watched Food Network, Ray discovered Duck Dynasty (we don’t have cable in case you can’t tell) and we were one big happy family. One big rested happy family.
I almost finished reading 7 and have a few pages left in One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer. Um, read it! It’s fantastic.
Here are some pictures of our week of vacation.
This is for real…Ray’s beach towel. Prepare yourself!
Also…the Mother Ship called
Some beautiful sunsets
This is my favorite Sophia picture
We return refreshed, energized and with great expectation. We are excited with upcoming changes as Revive Church. We are looking forward to seeing what all God does as He continues to stir things in us, challenge us, connects us and reminds us of His mission and His faithfulness.
