People.com is one of my favorite websites. I use to buy the magazine all the time but now just keep up with the hollywood smut the free way. Never did I dream our own Florida Gator quarterback Tim Tebow would be on People.com. The article is about his Pro-Life Superbowl commercial telling about the reason he is here today. Check it out...is this anyone else's secret obsession?

Annie! I had a cup of chowder with the tastiest grilled cheese I have had in a long time. It made me want to go home and see my mom, because she always made the best grilled cheese sandwiches. While there we checked out the new fishing peir, drove around the island and we got to see a plane land. I know that last thing probably sounds silly, but there was no barrier between us and the landing strip so it was a thrill to watch it land and hope and pray that it didn't crash into us. In all it was an amazing day filled with much laughter and adventure. Here are some pictures we took...

I have never been one to write down all the things I have to do. However when I do take the time to write a list I have an enormous sense of accomplishment when I get to cross it off. I laid in bed last night and could not fall asleep. My mind was racing, thinking " I want to do this in the house and I need to get this done tomorrow, etc." I was mentally making my to do list and then going over it again and again and again. It reminded me how I feel at the beginning of the school year, when I have the most vivid teaching dreams. I wake up exhausted from thinking all night! I am looking forward to the weekend because it gives me a break from thinking for 18 little minds, but I plan on working on a to do list. Maybe with a to do list my mind can take a rest and I could become more productive :)

Time is such a hard concept to put your hands around. There is never enough time and then what do you spend your time on. I read women's blogs who work, who don't work, have children, don't have children and I always think how do they have the time to do this and that, let alone blog. I am so overwhelmed to get everything done. I would have to say I do really love my sleep and I have 18 first graders who do appreciate when I have had a good night of sleep. I have a lot things I want to do with my life, Adam and I's life, but I get beat down to know where to start and what is most important. Yesterday at church our preacher spoke about Jesus' first miracle, the wedding at Canna. He said God choses when to perform His miracles in his time. Our preacher said everything we do should be spiritual from going grocery shopping to spending time together because you never know when one of God's miracles will affect your life. I do know and believe if I let God into evey aspect of my life I will know what is most important and what I need to be doing with my time. Right now God is a small part of my day when he should be all of my day. I want to pray more and begin reading the bible daily, so that I can learn more about him and live a more Christ like life. I guess you could say my Christian New Years resoluation (I know it is late) is to read the WHOLE bible. I have printed out Rick Warren's guide to reading the Bible in a year. With the devil all around us I will sure need help to stay focus on Christ. I know I don't have many followers but when you think about me or see me for those that live around me, ask me how my walk in faith is going. If you ask I might just have a miracle to share with you from that day.
