1. It’s raining. Again. Another gray and dreary day with a threat of another gray and dreary mood to match.
2. Basketball season begins tonight for my number two boy. I can’t believe it! He went to school today decked out in a shirt, tie and khakis, looking all grown up and leaving me to wonder where all my babies went?
3. In Tuesday’s Nightstand post, I forgot to mention that I also recently finished reading The Swiss Courier by Trish Goyer and Mike Yorkey, a story of spies and double agents set in World War II. The plot was a little predictable but enjoyable nonetheless. In short, I liked it (and Lauren did too; check out her review here and enter to win a copy of your own!). Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for giving me the opportunity to read it!
4. I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this yet but I am going to Nicaragua. Yes, I–me, Lisa–am going on a mission trip to another country, another culture, another world very different from my own, Nicaragua. Some of you know me well enough to know that an international mission trip has long been a dream and desire of mine. The dream is now reality and I am so overwhelmed I can hardly talk or write about it. We are going in February, 7 of us from my church. I’m not sure what my responsibilities will include but there is the possibility that my pastor’s wife (and friend) and I will be leading a woman’s conference. In Nicaragua. Did I mention I’m overwhelmed? I’m sure I will be blogging more in the future but for now, will you pray for us?
