Hello Friends

Here is a tiny glimpse of my journey so far.....

Big Ben, London

The London Eye

Sunset on the streets of London

Me trying to break into Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle..

The guards coming to arrest of the guard at Windsor Castle.

Me on the grounds outside Windsor Castle, the drive up is insanely stunning, can't imagine someone actually calls this home!!

It has been an amazing time so far and we've only just begun so many more adventures await.
Thanks so much for taking the time to come visit my blog!
Be blessed friends :)

Today is the day I fly away, a day I have planned for almost a year. I hop on an airplane to take me over the pond, first stop London, England for two days of sightseeing and visiting some friends, then onto another grand adventure.
My stomach is turning with nervousness, I just finished saying goodbye to my kids. It was hard I was so strong holding back the tears till my middle child burst into tears while he was hugging me, telling me how much he loves me and that he will miss me.....well that was enough to open the flood gates, I cried openly. My oldest was a rock, strong hugs but no tears. My girlie was joking, laughing and smiling trying real hard to be strong telling me to have fun and that she too will miss me. So I stood there on the top step in the garage still in my jammies waving goodbye to my kids as they biked away from our house tears streaming down my cheeks. This is not easy. I have prepared little gifts for them, for at least every other day while I am gone along with a note from me, just a little token to remind them of how much I love them.
I know I will have a good time and I am blessed to have this experience of seeing the world with a friend, my prayer is for safety and protection my myself and my family and for my kids and hubby to have a good time at home together :)
Thanks everyone for your prayers, have a great day and I will post again along this adventure!!

Picture of Peace

Peace is something that I long for more in my life, peace in any circumstance. Knowing that no matter what I am walking through I can have a peace that passes all understanding.
I was struck by this as I watched my daughter fast asleep on the couch in the living room area of our home, there was busyness all around her, people talking, the t.v. on, the computer buzzing and all the while she slept in a peaceful slumber, her face the picture of utter contentment. It didn't matter what was going on around her she slept, she wasn't touched by the noise around her.
Isn't that a picture of life?! there is always noise around us, whether it is the world screaming at us to look and be different to fit the 'norm' or an actual physical noise of always having to be entertained, never a quiet moment to ourselves.
Looking at my daughter my soul longed for peace, for that special time alone with just me and my God, where I know without a shadow of doubt that I am loved unconditionally and completely and being filled with a supernatural peace a peace that cannot be stolen by the noise of the world.
This is my prayer today....God help me to be filled with your peace and filled with contentment that can only come from more of you in my life.
