Closer to God

At night we like to go walking/running as a family. We are so fortunate to have many walking trails nearby. After a stressful day I love to go here and relax, yes that's right running and walking relaxes me so much. Well today was a very stressful day and as soon as I started my walk my headache disappears and my stress level goes down.
I grabbed my camera as we went out the door, and I am glad I did, what a beautiful sunset we saw while walking. As I was running my mind was worrying about things going on in our lives right now, I am a believer that God is always listening. I thought now is as good a time as any to have a conversation with him (funny uh, who would pray while running?). Well as I was running I asked to God to give me sign that things will be okay for our family, as I turned the corner this is what I saw.......
A baby deer just sitting by the side of the path, now how often does a deer just sit there and not run? It gladly stood still for me and let me snap photos. After 10 minutes the deer turned and walked away, I thought to myself.....God heard me and this is the sign he sent me. It is truly The little things in life that make me feel closer to God.

Hey Girl!

I discovered the coolest Summer Swap on a blog called Super Heroes and Princesses. Today is the last day to sign up so if you are interested hurry on over and provide them with the following info:

Names of your children
Ages of your children
State you live in
Your email address

It doesn't need to cost you anything (except postage) and the kiddos swap pics/postcards/hobby or craft thigies with their paired up partner.

To learn more go to Superheroes and Princesses and click on the Life of A Dairy Queen link on her sidebar. That's where I learned more about the Super Summer Swap. Your oldest might be too old (or not), but your middle and baby might have fun with it!
