Beautiful beginnings and evocative endings...

This past week was filled with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I have enjoyed getting up just before dawn and watching the beginning of a new day. Each is different and filled with beautiful colors painted all over the sky by the Father of Lights. It is an inspiring way to begin and end your day! This week was also filled with new life. Wednesday evening we went to St. Jude to visit my friends Chrystal and Paul and their new handsome little boy Titus Avery. He was fast asleep and was looking quite cute as all his "Registrar Aunties" took turns holding him.

Friday was the second of three short Fridays at work. This time I spent my free half day having lunch with a dear friend, getting a pedicure and then going for a long walk at the Fullerton Arboretum. It is truly a blessing to enjoy such wonderful warm weather in the middle of January. There were not many flowers blooming since, after all, it is the middle of winter but one of the interesting things I enjoyed looking at were all the tree trunks. Each one is different, intricate, unique and beautiful in it's own way. The citrus trees were loaded with fruit and the long afternoon shadows made for an evocative walk.

Some things ended this week, some things just begun but through it all the Lord has a perfect plan. Trusting Him is where I need to chose to be and know I'm not alone.
