Friday Fancies: teeny turning points

how do you make gifs
(pictures taken at Bolsa Chica during our trip here

There is much to dance and prance around about here on this blissful Friday. My love snapped the pictures above the last time we were at the beach here, and as I have divulged before, I am not a child of the water. The photographs sum up all the splash-filled action I encountered that day. Though I tried to outrun the billowing waves, they are just too speedy for me. I screamed and flailed my arms each time the waves smacked my body, but at least my giddiness and mirth are genuine, right? Some teeny turning points I am reveling over:
  • My dear husband wrote an encouraging and convicting post about technology's pervasive influence on us in this day and age. I think his confessions within are exceedingly amusing, but then again, I think my husband is a hilarious dork most of the time. His post stirs up reflections from what I studied throughout my undergrad career in Mass Communications, and with the Mister's convictions of late, along with this amazing series on our hearts in regards to the Internet, we are attempting to limit our technology use to better glorify the Lord. Though we do not have television, I am guilty of spending too much time on the world wide web. Therefore, one of my resolutions is not to blog after 9:00pm.
  • For the past year, we have been praying for a way for me to spend more time at home so I can better support my love in the ministry, and God is so kind in answering prayers and providing for us. I am not returning to the classroom this fall, and shall instead be transitioning into a new role where I get to help mobilize teachers into school leadership, district leadership, and political leadership for education reform, particularly in Los Angeles. I am thrilled about this opportunity to hopefully help impact our children beyond the lens of the classroom, especially because it is aligned to one of my future goals, as revealed here.
  • And, of course, we are having a most lovely time up here in the Bay, and dear friend Irene gets married tomorrow! Cheers!
Have a grand time this weekend, cheery chums!
