A Single Footprint

Brian and I went to Destin a couple of weeks ago for a four day mini-vacation to celebrate our 15th anniversary. It's the first time we have gone on a vacation where our hotel had a private beach area. During our first walk along the beach I noticed that my footprint was there only until the first wave reached it. It made me think about the footprints I leave behind me. Will the marks I leave in the lives around me last? Or will they fade when the next wave of life hits them?

I want to make a lasting impression in the lives of those around me. I want God to use me to help those I am in contact with to have a permanent mark on their lives that results from a supernatural experience with God. Don't let your footprints fade away.

My parents were here on Saturday and my mom & I got to looking at some old pictures of the girls. I just love this picture of them together. I love the way Kadie is stroking Paige's head in this picture. Kadie loved her "Paisey-Poo" very much. They played together, ate together, and rested together. I sometimes forget how small and sweet they were. They seem so big and grown up now.

Spring has made it to SW Oklahoma! I'm enjoying the week of spring before summer. It never ceases to amaze me that we will long for 70 degree weather and then only get to enjoy it for a week or two before the weather turns hot. The girls and I were industrious in the fall and we now have beautiful hyacinths, tulips and daffies beginning to bloom. It's been so much fun. The girls will run out and check to see if there are new blooms a couple of times each day. I have to admit that I've been going out and looking, too.

The girls are loving life in Mountain View. They have joined a girls' softball team and are doing very well. This is the first time they've played it. They can't wait for the real games to start. This is a new chapter for Brian and I. We've never been able to let them participate in something like this before. I'm glad that they like to play and that they are making good friends.

I'm especially glad that spring has finally made it!
