MIA

I have been a little bit MIA. I have 2 excuses...I've been busy (I know...cry me a river). And all my blogging energy has gone toward the re-boot of liveoak|roots, the official blog of my church, Live Oak. (insert shameless plug here)

I have two quick musings to share today.

First of all, the hubs and I went to a marriage enrichment conference two weekends ago. It was AWESOME. While I can say we didn't learn anything ground-breaking, we did find that this conference is about couples carving out time to focus on each other and on their marriage. I don't care who you are...taking that kind of time to nurture your relationship, to remember who your spouse is, to look at what God's design for marriage is, is a good, good thing. There will be another conference just like the one we attended, in Grapevine this June (at the awesomeness that is the Gaylord Texan). Here's the link: Weekend to Remember. Family Life Ministries is very good about finding ways to help you afford this, so if money is an issue, call them!

Secondly, I LOVE a good belly laugh. I think it's good for the soul. I like to think that God loves hearing me cackle (and those of you who know me, can attest that it exactly that) as much as I adore hearing that kind of laughter from my boys. So for the express purpose of a good belly laugh, enjoy this..

Hey Mindy! I totally agree with carving out time for your marriage! Cody and I have had a date night once a week for about 9 months, and it has been phenomenal in our growth as a couple and in strengthening our friendship.

We (Paul was watching with me) laughed out loud! And, I couldn't agree more...we LOVED the weekend as well.
