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

Travels to Tampa

Hubby and I enjoyed our weekend getaway and we have both decided that we love the Tampa Bay area!  We didn't let the fact that it was COLD hamper our visit- Our big "to do" was to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  Don't think "aquarium - lots of marine animals that are there for you to see".  The mission of CMA is to rescue, rehab and release and it was awesome to see firsthand the aquarium fulfilling its mission.  CMA may even sound familiar if you've seen A Dolphin Tale where it was Clearwater Marine Hospital.

The temperature kept us off the beach, but it was still nice to walk along the pier and to have all that uninterrupted time together.  Even with travel challenges, it all worked out great and we are thankful for God's provision for all the logistics.

We were both enamored by the sea turtle.

Winter doesn't do a "show" but visitors may watch her therapy sessions.

Loved seeing old friends and meeting their families.  The next pictures shows what had captured everyone's attention!

Our lunch meeting was kept a surprise from L & L - a fun lunch and a dear memory to treasure. (This post is missing the picture of one friend, but I'm not sure Hubby's phone has her - FB does!)
