Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Without knowing it, I have taken on this word....ADVENTURE!!!

It is the word I use when I gather my grandsons into my arms and sweep them away for an 

The joy of getting older is you don't care what people think as you make a clown of yourself to produce a smile in your grandsons or even your youngest child.  The cost is worth it as I jump or gallop like a horse to take them on an

Recently, my daughter-in-law found this shirt for my grandson to wear when he goes with me.

Today is my precious husband's birthday.  The man I have loved for over 39 years.  The man who is the father of all six of our children, ranging in ages from 32 to 10!  That alone says it all...........
it has been an 

Adventure - An adventure is an exciting or unusual experience. It may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome

This card today just jump-out and said it all for my husband.

An Adventure takes risk and has an unknown outcome....that is what life is all about.  It isn't always laughing, sometimes it is crying, but most of all, it is a choice to enter into the ADVENTURE.
I believe God calls us to enter into the ADVENTURE He has for us all.  As we enter His adventure we also learn to trust Him in deeper ways. We walk in faith, through all the dangerous and unexplainable parts of our own personal adventures, trusting Him with the outcome.  

Our second son took all of us on an ADVENTURE, we hadn't experienced.  We all went to the horse races for his birthday and had the joy of dressing up, as if we were going to the Kentucky Derby.

The ADVENTURE, gave us some wonderful picture time, while we celebrated his new decade of life. It was a time where God showed me He is in the ADVENTURE.  

My youngest son and my six grandsons lead me on ADVENTURES each week.  They stretch their arms out to lead me on an ADVENTURE....life...it is risky...an unusual experience.
It has been an Adventure, this journey of being a wife, mother and now a grandmother.
I have learned somethings on this Adventure, but most of it is, I don't know God's next move.
What I do know is............He leads the ADVENTURE.

Enjoy your ADVENTURE, each of ours looks different.
Love the ones who are on the ADVENTURE with you.
Thank you God for leading us on an ADVENTURE.

Good morning! Well there are certainly some wise words to be found here this morning...life is definitely an adventure. Never sure where it may lead us, never unchanging and seldom boring or dull, never without it's thorns or rocks, and definitely not without it's beauty and goodness, adventure with Jesus as our leader just can't get better! Happy birthday to that handsome hubby of yours!

Wonderful fun to go on an adventure. Going to the race track or doing something new and different...thrilling! We need these infusions of energy into our lives and why not?!

I love the photo of you all dressed up, your adventure sounded like so much fun. Life is surely an adventure, kind of hard for a gal like me , who likes things neat and orderly. That's not how life works and oh the things we would miss if it was. Happy Birthday to your hubby, did I mention love the hats!!

Adventure, such a positive spin on this life we lead. As with all adventures it can have good moments, and some more challenging moments. If there wasn't the chance of less than ideal moments, where would the adventure lie? Great post, Janette. As always I love your pictures, and congratulations on on your anniversary. May your live continue to be a happy adventure. God bless you, always.

Adventure - I love the sound of it. But sometimes adventure means unexpected and unnerving change. That scares me! But, I love how you've encouraged me to embrace it! After all, the journey of faith is truly one big adventure, isn't it?!

Love the photo of your family - quite sophisticated. And adorable!!

Here's to living life - grabbing on and holding on - up and down the roller coaster, back and forth on the bucking bronco, round and round the merry-go-round!!

Happy Mother's Day, Janette, and GOD BLESS!
