Answered Prayers

This week at work has been a busy one. That’s nothing new, but this time of year is usually my slower time and I use it to catch up on things I’ve fallen behind on. Unfortunately, this year there have been some circumstances that have caused things to really get crazy.

I have had a mountain of papers on my desk that need entering in our database. I set a goal of how much I wanted to get through this week and I started off slower than I wanted. Then on Thursday, my neck and shoulders hurt really bad and I just couldn’t concentrate. I said a prayer and asked God to help me figure out how to get rid of that pain so I could get work done. Almost immediately, the pain eased up, it didn’t go all the way away, but I felt much better and got a lot of stuff done.

Thursday night I prayed and thanked God for helping me that way and prayed about all I still had to get done. Today, I still wasn’t feeling too good, but God helped me stay focused on what I was doing (this can be really hard for me some days) and I was able to finish up my entire goal with a half hour still left in the day and so I was able to get another big stack of things done!

I think sometimes I forget to ask God to help us with stuff like this. Sometimes it seems like I shouldn’t because there are bigger, more important things going on in the world. With all the craziness I see on the news everyday, why would God care if I got my paperwork done for the day or not? But, HE DOES! He wants to help us with little things as well as big things and I am soooo thankful for that. I couldn’t have gotten everything done with out His help.

So, I hope that you and I will both remember that God is there for us always big problems and small, good times and bad. He loves us and is ready to help.

Albuquerque

Last week I had to make a quick day trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico for an appointment. It was a beautiful, warm day and I only got lost twice.🙂  I also got a chance to make a couple extra stops. Here are some pictures from that trip.

After about two hours of driving it was time for a stop. We chose Blake’s Lotaburger in Espanola, NM. For breakfast they served breakfast burritos. Mine had egg, cheese, fresh tomato and fresh Hatch green chile. It looked really good, but for me the chile was too hot. I don’t handle spicy very well so for most people it probably wouldn’t be considered to be as hot as it was for me. But, if you like the spice I would recommend trying this burrito because all the ingredients were fresh and it looked great.

After that, we drove past Santa Fe. When we made it into Albuquerque we found the place where I had to go to my appointment then took some time to run to Whole F20161013_125539oods since that is somewhere we don’t often get to go. Then we stopped at Taco Cabana for lunch. I thought the name sounded fun. It was packed and everyone seemed to enjoy their food. Unfortunately, I didn’t like the flavor much. But they did have a lot of variet
y and a really cool salsa bar with all kinds of different salsas.

Also, look at the cool metal window awnings they had.

After that, we made a quick run by another place we don’t get to go to very often.

Yes that’s right, Krispy Kreme. I enjoyed the food I got here the best of the whole day.🙂

Then I had my appointment and we went home so here are some other pictures of the Sandia Mountains and Sandia Peak

It was a busy day and we were tired when we got home.

Hope you enjoyed the ride!

Let’s Swim

In the area we live in we are lucky to have two hot springs pools. Both are very nice, warm and lots of fun. One is the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool. We don’t go to this one often mostly because it is about 30 minutes away but it is open year round so sometimes during my week off at Christmas, we will take a trip up there.

But “our pool” is Splashland.  It is only about 7 minutes away so we go there almost every day of summer. This year and last, they have stayed open on the evenings and weekends into about the middle of October (next Sunday will be the last day). It has been so nice and swimming is what we look forward to the most. 10171040_915469661800461_9088642744585763292_n

Both of these pools are GREAT and I highly recommend them to anyone traveling through the our valley.  So, next time you are in town, won’t you come swim with us?

Concert Train

Recently I took a ride on the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad with my sister and nephew.

This was a special train, part of their Mountain Rails Live concert series. That means we had a fun and beautiful train ride up to the top of the mountain and stopped at Fir, Colorado.

Here we stopped got off and were able to eat lunch and attend a concert.

The concert we saw was Shenandoah, a country group we have enjoyed for a long time. (The band rides on the train with you.)

349

It was a really good concert and the weather outside was beautiful.  We had a great time and also got to see some nice scenery on the trip  up and back.

American Ninja Warrior

ANWLOGO8

Tonight is the Las Vegas Finals of American Ninja Warrior. Have you seen this show? If you haven’t you should. It is so awesome to see the ninjas (both men and women) compete on super hard obstacle courses. These are some strong people! It would be so cool to be able to do that, but it would take me a billion years to build up to it.

My whole family like watching American Ninja Warrior every summer. And, luckily since it is hard to wait until next summer to watch again, they are filming the second season of Team Ninja Warrior!

This is different because it its two teams racing each other on the course. Both shows are fun and exciting to watch.
