Away

Oh, hi. You might have wondered if I forgot how to write/type.  Well, kind of.  I've been working on some things, and blogging just hasn't been on the forefront of my mind lately.  Sometimes I feel like life just gets way to busy and jumbled and I find myself just making it thorough each day, which is not how life should be. I wasn't designed to "make it through" or "survive" each day, but rather to treat them as gifts, because I'm not promised tomorrow.  God's been working on my heart lately, and I've been dealing with some yucky stuff, and did not like who I was becoming, so Justin and I choose to get a way a few weeks ago, for 2 nights we choose to pack up our puppy and spend the weekend disconnected at The Lords Land

Okay, have you heard of this place? The story behind it is crazy amazing, and I won't do it justice so make sure you read up on them.  Basically it used to be this hippie commune/ place of "spiritual" refuge for the hippies out of Height Ashbury in San Francisco in the 60's.  This lady sold all of her possessions to buy this safe haven type place where the hippies could go and well, do hippie type things I guess, clothing was optional (not now of course) but at the time it was, and they build this sanctuary type place full of crazy houses. Anyway, missionaries came eventually and shared Jesus and eventually "The Land" became "The Lords Land" where people can go and just be with God.  We spent our time talking and just being together, which we haven't done in a while. We talked about our hopes and dreams for our family and the changes that will be happening before we know it. 

I love how The Lords Land literally has script everywhere, there are hidden crosses and hearts all over the places, you find them when you least expect it.  

So, my trusty 15 followers :) I'll leave you with some pictures of our time away, a time I'll treasure always. 



Fort Bragg












Our cute little cabin (see the tilted window, way to not conform :) )


That song "Beautiful Things" came to mind..







Such a special time away

What a NEAT place! I'm so glad that you and your husband were able to get away for a bit. As soon as I finished reading your post I had to show my husband the website for this place, and we might try and go sometime this fall! Thanks for the share, Stephanie!

Yes you guys need to go! You'll love it. It's just so neat, and almost surreal. I'm so looking forward to meeting you guys in person when you move back!! :)
