Mexico, Here We Come!

Ok, I am now officially getting excited! Tomorrow morning we leave Dulles airport for Mexico for a week of vacation. We are going with good friends from our church who invited us to share their timeshare in a beautiful resort. God is so good!

Bobby and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary in July. We didn't do anything special because this vacation is our gift to one another for our anniversary. We are so looking forward to the time away. I am packing books and even a leadership course I am currently enrolled in. We are looking forward to rest and relaxation! Like many of you in the ministry those two words are seldom a part of my vocabulary. We will take a few day trips but baking in the beautiful sun and walking on the white sandy beaches sounds like heaven to me at the moment This has been such a stressful few weeks.

Last night I met with my Life-Coaching Mentorship Group. We had a great evening of discussion and fellowship. One of the books we are studying is Hand Me Another Brick. It is a great book about the life of Nehemiah and his leadership qualities.

I am planning to blog while we are away. The resort has an Internet Cafe' so hopefully I will have an opportunity to stay in touch. Our daughter and her family will be house sitting and taking care of our three little people with fur. She came down with this same sickness that my hubby and I have had for the past month last evening. She has a doctor's appointment this morning. Please keep her in your prayers.

I pray that you have a fabulous weekend. Blessings and hugs!
