There is a lot to be grateful for this week. Last weekend, Travis and I went to Northern California for a 5K race. We enjoyed driving Highway 1 up the coast, and were in awe of the Redwood Trees we saw. Saturday morning, after our race we hiked 2 trails and again were in awe of everything we saw. It took leaving Colorado to see elk and hike a box canyon. We both love nature and being out in it. Living in metropolitan Modesto, doesn’t cut it for us some times and we really enjoy our escapes to Yosemite, the beach at Santa Cruz or now, Northern California Redwood Country.
I am also grateful to be doing some independent contracting for a fellow small business owner, and making a little money. (Note: I do a few contracting jobs blogging and pet sitting) I am grateful that these opportunities have presented themselves and that these people/friends find me capable to do the job. (Thanks y’all!) Check out my contributing post on Hello Nature HERE.
This week I started the latest bible study on She Reads Truth, on Opening your Bible. How to read it with reverence and respect. Having a seminarian as a husband, we frequently would talk about inherent vs infallible of the bible and where to put our stock in to the text. This has been a great study and really reminded me how although this was written nearly 2000 years ago, it speaks so clearly to us today and we are still struggling with these same issues of equality, love and peace.
What are you grateful for this week?
