Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

A Day in Santa Fe

The day after Christmas, Aunt, M, Gm (Grandmomma) and I caught the train in Albuquerque to go to Santa Fe for the day. Before then, the only trains I had ridden had been in amusement parks. We enjoyed the experience and the scenery along the way.

We stopped for a snack while waiting for the rest of our family to join us.

Our official trip photographer, my beautiful sister, Aunt.

The rest of the family arrived by van. I guess Grandpapa didn't want a picture with a llama.
We did some window shopping and shopping (I found a sweater while walking to the plaza.). We enjoyed lunch at La Fonda (the lounge anyway - no table available in the restaurant, for the rest of the day!) More sightseeing, including the Loretto Chapel. We all returned by van and I slept the whole way back to ABQ!
