Side note: I actually came home from work one day and was craving suburbia! Craving Suburbia?! So we made a date out of it and drove up to an On the Border and then hung out at a HUGE B&N for the evening. It was quite refreshing and fun! I think "craving suburbia" is a sign of getting old...
Back to the Bible... Greg had been talking with our friend Eliot a little and asked him about how they spend time with God together, what works for them, etc. And Eliot's advice was to start small. So when we saw the short devotions at B&N, we decided to give it a try. Now, we're not great about sticking to it every day. (We're both chronic snooze addicts.) But we've been able to somewhat consistently read together, talk through things together, pray together, and more purposely choose to share Life together. It's been wonderful!
Thanks, Greg, for leading us to God together!
Thanks, all of you, for helping us start small through your prayers a while back!
Greg and I watched this movie last night, and I loved it! Just thought I would pass on the recommendation. It's a little strange, and if you're not into music I wouldn't recommend it. But if music is much of life to you, you have to see it!
This is the main entrance. The building is absolutely beautiful! I remember the first time Greg & I drove past it...I said something like, "Wow, Greg! Isn't that gorgeous?! Can you imagine living there?! I bet a condo costs over half a million!" (...and they do!) The building was built in 1894 and originally functioned as the high school for the City of Medford. It was converted into condominiums in 1984.
Our bedroom is on the other side of the living area. You can kind of see the door in the picture above. It has the same large windows! The study (aka guest bedroom) is on the other side of the dining area (see below). We'll finally be able to use our futon if we can get it here from Detroit! And Greg will most definitely be dumpster diving or rather streetside watching for a bigger desk. (Maybe I'll convince him to check craigslist...)
So the following doesn't hurt either...it's indoor and heated year-round. There's also a sauna. :-) Ready to come visit yet?
...And then I turned a corner and had to carefully navigate a long patch of sidewalk covered in ice.
That's when I realized that living in New England, I have developed a warped view of what "warm" weather is. I remember getting excited a few days ago when we had a high of 40 degrees Fahrenheit!
*sigh* I'm definitely not in Texas anymore. Or in Kansas either, for that matter. Who calls 30-40F degree weather nice? Well, I give in, because now I do. And I sure hope it stays this warm all month! (I can't wait to not have to wear my Cuddleduds to work every day!)
Oh my goodness! I just checked the weather, and the high tomorrow is 50F! I can hardly wait! (Now, if only it could be sunny and 50 when I walk to work in the morning instead of at 3/4pm in the afternoon while I'm sitting in front of my computer at work...)
