Baptist Young Women/Christian Women

I went to my second Baptist Young Women (renamed as Christian Women) meeting Monday night. It's a group of women, ranging in age from 21-50, who get together once every month for a dinner and devotion. It was so much fun not just to get out of the house and do something different on a weeknight, but to get to know some of the women from our church. We're planning a women's weekend retreat in January and I cannot wait for it! If you listen to one of the women who went on last year's retreat talk about it, you will instantly want to go! We're scheduled to leave January 9th (my birthday!), and will return on the 12th. (Zach and I can always go out for my birthday a week early!!) If anyone wants to go, just let me know! We would love to have new people join!

Fall Colors

I decided to take some pictures of all the gorgeous trees around our neighborhood today. The fall colors are so bright this year, even after the lack of rain. The first picture is the drive where our house is. All the different colored leaves blend together so beautifully! The last picture is the view of the mountain from our road. We are blessed to have images like these all around us every single day, and so many times we take them for granted! Autumn is a great time to realize the beauty that God has created and thank Him for it all!

Papou's Family

Zach's Papou (Greek for "grandfather") passed away last week. He was known by everyone to be the most caring, giving person. We traveled to Tarpon Springs, Florida for his service, which was such a great tribute to him. All the people gathered there, including family and so many friends, had so many kind things to say about Papou. You could look around the room and see the love for him in everyone.

One of the good things that came from this was the family getting together. It was nice to meet a lot of Zach's family that I had never met before. We met with some of the family for dinner, by chance, our last night in Florida and had a fun time getting to know them. The top picture is Papou's grandchildren. The second picture is the (big) family, minus just a few.
