getting campy

2 friday nights ago the stars aligned and provided a warm(ish) january weekend forecast. daniel and i took advantage of said forecast and took my little sister out for her first camping experience. yes it was cold, but she loved it, and thus i did, too. although it is one of the worst sleeps i've had on record :)
it's all part of the adventure.

embracing whimsy

i figured if i'm going to keep this blog, i need to take some steps toward updating it. 2009 was a year full of goodness. so here's a (very) small sampling of what the year entailed.

my hope for 2010:
"I asked Bob what was the key to living such a great story, and Bob seemed uncomfortable with the idea he was anything special. But he wanted to answer my question, so he thought about it and said he didn't think we should be afraid to embrace whimsy. I asked him what he meant by whimsy, and he struggled to define it. He said it's that nagging idea that life could be magical; it could be special if we were only willing to take a few risks."

and even breathing feels alright

Isaiah 40
1Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that her warfare is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the LORD’s hand
double for all her sins.

3 A voice cries: "In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."
