Just a thought...

"An unnoticed life 
that is lived for others, 
is more important 
than a highly visible life
that is lived for self."

The Greatest Gift

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us." 

We hope you all have a very blessed Christmas! May His presence surround you in the coming year!

Honeymoon: Part 1

Yes! It actually allowed me to upload some pictures! So, since they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words" I'm going to let them do most of the talking!:) Enjoy!

This was at the very beginning of our trek up to the summit of Pikes Peak. What a climb it was! Switchback roads, sheer drop-offs and magnificent views! Wow!

We actually caught the 'Big Foot' crossing himself! (smile)

We arrived at the summit after nearly 2 hours of driving. It was absolutely incredible! I will never forget it!

Did you know? That America the Beautiful was penned after Kathrine Lee Bates visited the summit of Pikes Peak? I didn't, but once you've been there you can understand why someone would be so inspired!

The views at the summit of Pikes Peak were breathtaking! We serve an awesome Creator!!

I didn't know this about the Rockies, and found it fascinating!

Here we are behind the waterfall at Casa Bonita's

On the opening night of Fireproof, we headed to Denver and ate at Casa Bonita's before the movie. It was such a fun restaurant! Josiah had been there before, and it was special to get to go back with him. They had live entertainment while you were eating. Everything from music, to old type gun shows, and divers who dove from up to 28 feet into a 14 foot deep pool with a waterfall too! It was a ton of fun!!

Keep checking back...there's more to come, so long as the computer cooperates!

Attempted Honeymoon Post--

Some of you know that we spent our honeymoon in Colorado, and the rest of you just found out. (grin) My wonderful husband planned 10 marvelous days to be away, and it was so special!

The scenery was alsolutely gorgeous! This is Pikes Peak!!

Us, as the summit...what a view!

We also went to Garden of the Gods. The massive rock structures were incredible!!

As to the'll have to just use your imagination! (LOL!:) My computer is giving me fits about uploading them! So until it actually lets me you will just have to be creative as to what it might look like! :) You can be sure though, that I'll get them on as soon as I can. Hopefully attaining an actual 'honeymoon post'?!

So bear with me--it's STILL coming!!!

Guess what happened to me this morning?!? I awoke to my sweet husband laughing out loud, in his sleep at a dream he was having! So I woke him...because it was 4:30am, and I desired a little more sleep than that. It was a funny dream, but if you think I'm going to publish that here, you've got to be kidding! LOL!

The best part of it all--was that he delivered to me a GREAT BIG

Which is nothing new...he does that every morning when I awake!!:) And that--was TOTALLY WORTH waking up for!!!

This is your Co-Pilot speaking!

Since you've all been asking...and because this post is LONG overdue...I thought I'd take a moment, and at least try to update all those out there wondering how WE are?!

It hardly seems possible that we've already been married 82 days! Where has the time gone?! Marriage is wonderful, and my husband is the ABSOLUTE BEST there is!(grin) I can say that, 1)because he's mine, and I know 2)also, because I know the password to login, and 3)just because he is!!

I can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner. Are you all ready? I'm not!! I think it has successfully snuck up on me this year. Wonder why that would be?? Hopefully soon I'll get up some decorations here, and then I'll most likely feel, or see that it's coming!?!

Between Thanksgiving, and being gone to visit the family in Branson(tons of fun, and special memories!). I've not been home much to pull them out, or go shopping for a few things of our own. All the cute mom has!:)

So, I hope you all don't mind me trying my hand at this whole blogging/posting world?! My husband is super busy with work--faithfully providing, and caring for me! Therefore, you'll have to bear with my glitches, and hope it doesn't take me toooooo looonnnggg to get a handle on how this all works!

Holding your breath is probably not a good idea. Because there's a high likelihood you could just run out! lol! Yet, I'll do my best to drop in now and then as time allows.

I'm really hoping to get a honeymoon post up a going here soon! That is, if y'all would like to have one??? Guess you'll have to check back to see if I can possibly bring it in for a safe landing!
