The Windy City


As you can see "The Windy City" lived up to its name and we almost lost Mark one evening but he held on until the winds died down! Phewwww! John and Natalie were using their Ninja "rooting" skills that I taught them so that's why they were unaffected by the winds but Mark was playing "Brick Breaker" on my phone during that lesson.

I'm in the Chicago airport right now getting ready to catch my flight back to SB and I just can't stop thinking about and thanking God for the people he's put in my life - especially the Barlows! The last couple of days they opened up their wonderful home to me while I was in town to go to the Maximum Impact conference but I think the real reason I was here was for them to open up my heart and my spirit to a new way of talking to God and listening for what He has planned in my life. I'm very excited!

I'm also very excited to get home and have a good stretch of time to get caught up on everything including emails! Yea! :)

Missy and Gary are in town and we're gonna be celebrating Missy and Amy's birthday! Amy's birthday is actually today!!! Happy Birthday Amy Nave! You're no longer a teenager!!! Woohoo! So awesome! :)

Ok..gotta fly!
