I had an amazing time in Anna Maria with my darling husband.
I am leaving tomorrow for some time in Wisconsin for a baby shower and family time.
I'll have lots of pics to share from both trips eventually :)
I miss my husband whenever I am not with him.

I will likely look a little bit like a beach ball when we get to Anna Maria :) 2 months left and looking like it for sure. I am hoping to get a few good pictures at the beach, we will see how that goes...
I'm pretty much packed and ready to go, tomorrow morning will come quickly.

TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman
"He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light" (Job 12:22).
One of the great mysteries of the Kingdom is how God uses the darkest times in our lives to reveal greater depths of understanding of His ways. The only way we can receive these deeper things is to be driven to the depths of darkness. It is here that we discover important truths that He plans to use in our lives and the lives of others.
There is a process God uses to draw us into greater levels of intimacy. The first phase involves a depth of soul experience that causes great pain in our lives. We seek God for deliverance from the incredible emotional pain this causes. Our primary motivation for seeking God is to get out of our pain.
During this time, God meets us in the depths of darkness. We discover that He never left us but is in the midst of the darkness. We develop a newrelationship with God. Gradually our motivation turns from removal of pain to love and intimacy with God. This is the place our Heavenly Father desires us to be.
During this season God will make spiritual deposits into your life. Others will be making withdrawals in the future from your life as well. You see, God reveals deep things in darkness that will be revealed in the light.
If you find yourself in great distress, know that God will bring your deep shadows into the light. The key to your deliverance is becoming satisfied in God. He becomes your all. He is your life. You will know your deliverance is near when your circumstances simply don't matter to you anymore.
Love the Lord your God with all your soul and see what things He will show you in the deep things of darkness.
