Because the bitter cold bleakness of the winter seems to drag on – here are some pictures to remind us of the warmth that will be coming back – granted – it’s a warmth that brings the winter – but still.

I absolutely LOVE where I grew up – ESPECIALLY during fall!

The moon – space. I was born to be a space traveler. I hate flying. But the thought of going to the moon – another galaxy. Warp drive. Sign me up. Sigh.

What IF you fly? What if you never try. And then you’re missing out on the best thing to ever happen. I personally think we set too many expectations for ourselves and the people around us.

I want my boys to love Jesus and love people. I want them to enjoy school and try their best – but I also think that straight A’s should be the last of their worries. I want them to try. And fail. I want them to try and succeed. Because life isn’t perfect. It’s about mistakes and forgiveness. It’s about successes and grace. I want them to have a great sense of self-worth – because it’s really hard to love and be loved when you don’t. I want them to experience life. In it’s wonderful and horrible and beautiful glory. I want them to look at a sky and see so much more. I want them to live in grace.

Fear is a healthy thing – when it’s fear of the cars in the street – or getting too close to the edge. Not when it’s about trying and failing. Because you will always fail – at least once – but really so much more. BUT – you will also fly – at least once. But really. So. Much. More.
