It was a relativley uneventful experiment, thankfully. I did fall and crack my knee, so any dreams of Kristy Yamaguci-like triple toe lips were not going to happen. Lol. The boys did pretty good but I think the only one unscathed was Jim. If you are looking for a fun, low-cost family activity, I highly recommend this one! We laughed and made some great memories.
As I am writing this, it's New Years Eve, just hours away from the ball drop. As usual, I am reflecting on the beauty and blessings of the past year, the challenges and disappointments and.... the HOPEFULNESS that this new year brings. I think that is a nice element of vacation, it allows to step away from regular schedules, slow down, embraces our loved ones and spend some time with the Lord in contemplation.
I pray that the spirit of the living God will fall afresh on you and bring joy, strength, and a steadfast spirit. Happy New Year!!
"The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!"
