Bermuda or Bust

Heading for the British territory for a bit of poolside relaxation. In hopes of sharing the fun, I sent an email tickler welcoming friends to join us: "So my roomie, Megan and I are gonna do it. Bermuda July 23-26. Got your passport? We're inviting folks to be crazy spontaneous with us."

Sarah's Dinner: Breaking Bread Together

Romans 12:15
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

It is wonderful to rejoice with friends. To not just be happy for them, but be able to participate in their joy. To join forces in their celebration. To savor God's goodness together.

Sarah's Dinner was a triumph--3 Tweets worthy!

Tweet 1: Sarah's dinner celebration starts in ten min. Congrats on your new position, girl, God is faithful!

Tweet 2:
A beautiful evening of thanksgiving and honor to our good God of perfect provision. Sarah, the Lord's hands is on you. He goes before you.

Tweet 3: Sarah's dinner: scrumptious steak grilled on baby weber, fancy salad, mashed red skin potatoes w/ rosemary & tiramisu peppered w/ good convo

(written while listening to George Winston's Thanksgiving...always makes me nostalgic).

Walking, just keep walking.

Twitter synopis: Patting myself on the back for tonight's 10 mile walk into DC w/ my #pinkprayer teammate. Another 6 in the morning

Ten miles. Sweet, I just walked 10 whole miles. That's pretty far. It took almost 3 hours.

Nicky or should I say my teammate and personal "slave-driver" kept me going.

While we were on the trail looking at DC over the Potomac, the Lincoln Memorial beckoned, so off we went over the Memorial Bridge. I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever crossed it as part of the foot traffic. We enjoyed the sun setting behind the memorial (I love Lincoln). The bustle of kickball teams and the sounds of the Marine Band playing big band tunes made the stretch near the memorials quite enjoyable.

Ooh, we also saw this guy being arrested. There were no less than 5 cop cars and one undercover vehicle as well. I wanted to gape, but Nicky reminded me of our goal--MILEAGE.

It's sorta fun--all this walking. You never know what you'll see.
My hamstrings might need a little more stretching, but there will be six more miles tomorrow morning to loosen 'em back up.
