we spent the last few days at a timeshare in Alabama, courtesy of Jeremy's grandparents. as much as we love New Orleans, it was nice to get out of town for a few days, enjoy some family time, and some beautiful scenery. Jeremy and I tend to love car rides together, it gives us a chance to talk, dream, and share while we are on the road, I think this trip was worth it just for the time that we had in the car together. plus we got to have some fun time hanging out with the Mangerchine side of the family. we stayed in a remote part of Alabama, so our days were pretty low key and filled with simple pleasures. we got to slow down and retreat with the Lord. we got to walk/ jog through some beautiful hilly areas. we got plenty of family pool time. plenty of good food. and plenty of good conversation. it was a great time, and now we have two more days of family time at home before Jeremy has to go back to work. it feels good to be home. driving back we both said that it really felt like we were coming home. New Orleans has certainly become home to us in a short time. we LOVE it here! now I'm off to soak up more time with my little family of 3 before we return to our normal grind.
thank you Lord for family. for beautiful creation. for vacations. thank you that you are always with us. thank you for refreshment. thank you for your unconditional, sacrificial love.
