4. My Small Group: we don't always get to the devotional study planned, but many times that's for the better. I'm so thankful Katiebug & Dear Friend separately shared with me that they wanted a group back in March; Ben came on board; Dear Friend has since moved away; now we've added Nick (not pictured). They're great friends, a support system and prayer warriors.
5. My Office View: although I will admit that during important Conference Calls, I catch myself staring out the window and have to refocus...again and again. Monday I looked down and saw a super-large wood turtle moving along the ivy brush; that fatboy was pretty cool to watch.
6. Funky Dining Room Inspirations: these are random pictures I've collected, my apologies for not knowing to whom I should credit.
7. Running: well, we have a love-hate relationship. But it's a good practice of discipline. There are lots of things in life that will require sticking through and toughing things out. Running is a voluntary choice, that's not particularly fun for me, but I always feel it does good for both my mind and body afterwards. Since the past 2 weeks have been so hectic, I hadn't kept up my regular running routine and right now, my body is NOT happy from running last night, but I'll get over it soon enough...
