Every Monday, I will TRY to post whatever is on my mind (consider it a smorgasbord of thoughts and randomness) as a way to clear my head and prepare for the week ahead. By doing so, I hope to calm the chaos and organize the scattered. Cheers to 2015 and blessings to you!
I spent a great deal of time last week reminiscing about my trip to the Holy Land two years ago. It was such an incredible, life-changing, and Spiritually-enhancing experience. I don’t do it as often as I should, but I treated myself to longer showers and pampering facials using AHAVA products I purchased in Israel. The same items are available in the U.S., but knowing I brought them back home straight from the source makes me feel like I’m floating in the Dead Sea when I’m actually standing in my own shower or bathroom and enjoying a few minutes of quiet contentment. And, my skin feels and smells amazing. 🙂

Believe it or not, Zumba is an incredible cardio workout. Add a 3-pound weight to each hand and, after just a few minutes, that weight feels like 50! Saturday morning, I did a 60-minute Zumba class prior to another total body conditioning (circuit training) class and folks were surprised that the Zumba-ers were sweating. What? Did you think shaking what your Mama gave you was easy? Pfft.

I participated in the “Intro to Bible Journaling” workshop yesterday at The Little Blue House in Keller. Three words: HOLY. SMOKES. WOW. Y’all get ready, I’m going to knock this #BibleJournaling and #IllustratedFaith stuff out of the park. As much as it intimidates me, I need to visit Hobby Lobby for some stickers, stencils, and stamps. Not that I want to rely solely on these “embellishments” to journal and illustrate my Bible, but they can enhance what I create organically. And, let’s be honest, I’m not that artistic and I need all the help I can get! I’ll be sharing pictures and thoughts from the workshop later this week, stay tuned!
