Crazy Little Thing...

My wonderful husband made all the arrangements for a stunning and fun and amazing weekend...he arranged for Jay (who suddenly has two more teeth and can walk circles around our home!) to spend a weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Porter, and set us up for a weekend "away."

We went here for the weekend…an amazingly beautiful place, I must say….

No TV’s…1500 acres of trees and cool air and walking trails and just delicious lush forest, amazing lodges, amazing chapel, amazing training center, amazing food (all included and all made by The Cove staff...those people put on QUITE a spread!)…just amazing everything.

We went to participate in Art and Lysa TerKeurst’s Crazy Little Think Calls Love Marriage workshop…

Amazing speakers, a true girly girl and a true man’s man who have had a marriage they had to fight for…it was funny and inspiring and FULL of information and things to ponder…

Incidently, if you don’t recognize Art and Lysa, they were featured on Oprah for adopting orphans from Lyberia…they live in a town just south of where we live in North Carolina. Amazing story there too!!!

We did some sight seeing…I’ll put photos up of that later…

My biggest take away from the weekend:

Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.

Remember who you are.

Be intentional.

Happy pondering, my friends!!!
