World Traveler?…….only the U.S. so far :)

Another journey out of my comfort zone.

I have flown 3 times in my life.  All three times have been since Peyton has been in Heaven.  This time was the first time to fly without my husband.  God has brought some very cool opportunities to me.  He loves me so much.

Do you know this skyline?  It was the view from my hotel room a week ago.

Boston 001

Boston Massachusetts!!!!!! 

I had a wonderful trip with a great lady.  We are friends, co-workers, sisters in Christ and we graduated high school together!!

Boston 046

We were there for a work conference.  We were able to fit in some sight seeing.  Boston is a great city.

This is embedded in the sidewalk.  There is  a 2.5 mile Freedom Trail you can follow of historical landmarks

Boston 022 Boston 012

Statue of Paul Revere.  Yes, there is a Bruins jersey on it.  The locals were very proud of it.  I don’t know if they put it on him or not :)

 Boston 017 

I took this picture while on a trolley tour.  I wish I would have seen it up close.  It is a Holocaust memorial.  The six columns represent the smokestacks from the ovens in the concentration camps.  There are  victims’ names engraved on the walls of the columns.  Such a horrific event that we should not forget. 

Boston 032

My life is changing in ways I would not have imagined.  It is full of good things and I am growing as a person.  God doesn’t want us to remain the same.  God’s character stays the same, but He is a progressive and mobile God.  He wants us to go beyond.  Beyond what we can even imagine.  I am continually letting go of preconceived ideas and limits.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  I am More than a Conqueror……….and so are you!!!!

Thanks for reading :)


The ESPN show about rodeo safety that I talked about in this post, is supposed to air this Sunday, June 19th.  It is going to be on the show “Outside the Lines” on ESPN2, 9:00 a.m. central time.

I do not know how much they will use of the footage they took of us or how much they will mention Peyton.  I don’t believe that was the purpose them coming.  You can read about that in this post too ;)

Becky, I got a chance to catch up with your blog today. My goodness, so much is happening. I just found your healthy eating blog, and will be back for recipes. The ESPN show is fantastic, and I am glad you had the courage to step forward on that. The Boston trip? One of my favorite cities, too. Such a fascinating place. You are certainly continue to press forward and walk through the open doors God brings your way. I am so proud of you. It is tempting to give up, but you have not done that, and you are more than a conqueror.
Much love and many continued adventures for you.

PS: I answered you on my blog, but will tell you that the greenhouses are from Costco online.
