And The Celebration Goes On......


My precious friend Debbie took me out for a day of big girl FUN in celebration of my birthday.  
  Debbie is that friend who weaves Jesus into everything she does. I'll share an example below!

We went to a wonderful restaurant in downtown St.Pete. It was great food, but the outside wrap-around-porch added the ambiance of peace and renewal. 
The highlight of the day was our visit to the Chihuly Museum:


Debbie took me for a day of education and inspiration.  Dale Chihuly is a famous, world renown artist known for his glass work.  I've never seen anything like it.  When we first walked in my eyes welled up with tears.  Beautiful just doesn't give his work enough credit.  There is something about seeing it in person that pictures could never capture. 












"For the light makes everything visible" ~ Ephesians 3:14a

As we were walking through the museum we noticed that it was the light that brought the glass to life.  The glass by itself was simply a hunk of glass.  

Isn't that true as believers.  We are just human beings walking around UNTIL the light of Christ illuminates in us, and through us, to those around us. (Thank you, Debbie Friley for that inspiration)


We ended our day with Gelato!  Oh My!  

Thank you sweet friend for loving me, believing in me, discipling me!  Most of all, I thank the Lord for giving me you as my friend.  There are no words that could ever thank you enough for such a wonderful day! XOXO

P.S.- Thank you for teaching me how to get the most out using my little point and shoot camera!  These pictures really did come out so much better.
