Boston Getaway

This is the Onyx Hotel that we stayed at during an overnight stay in Boston to see Keith Urban in concert. If you looked out this window you could almost see TD Garden at the end of our street. We got there early via GPS directions, with no problems.... parking attendant came right out and whisked our car away. After checking in we had time to walk the neighborhoods in Boston's north end and choose a nice Italian restaurante. The concert was my first in years, and I was shocked at how many young girls were there to see an rising star called Taylor Swift. She sings about all the issues of romance that these girls could relate to: she especially sings about lessons learned from dealing with past less than perfect boyfriends. The fan girls were singing to every song she sang.... a real eye opener for me. Young stupid boys who want to impress young woman this age could take a lesson: do the right thing and speak the truth. The girls will listen!!
Aside from the teeming social issues that could fill several sociology class discussions, we had a marvelous time. Keith Urban is very talented and sings a lot of pretty songs we enjoy. The boys were at their own 4 day SoulFest concert, so we were free to enjoy a bit of a get away. Thankfully the Sox were playing in another town!!

Night Flights

The light from her den called to me in the night,
But she was not there,
The fairie had left with her true love and flown to
exciting places yet unknown.

Her presence was felt still in her den,
But the light had grown cold.

She will return from far off places to visit us one day,
As fairies always do~
------This was a post I made last year when Amy got married. (I just added a more personalized picture this time )She did return from far off places to visit us but she is soon off again--this time to Japan. Safe flight Amy.... I trust you'll return again as fairies always do~

What are You Doing?

That was the title of the devotional on the day I walked away from a job that I've had for almost 8 years. I loved the work environment and the friends I'd made during that time. I regret giving up the position I'd gained there, and of course the incoming paycheck.But the Spirit of God still moves, just as in time of creation, and my husband George and I knew it was time for me to be home with the boys again. I've nothing but joy right now. Joy for the time to listen to family members, rest so that the creative side of homemaking is coming back, thoughts of hospitality again, teaching Bible studies again, you name it. It's all coming back. Especially time to hear God again. So what am I doing? Exactly what God wants me to do. Doing what God wants you to do?... priceless.
