A Pleasant Journey

The Walk: Clear Direction and Spiritual Power for Your Life by Sean Alexander is really a tale about the journey each Christian takes as he/she matures. From the wanderings of an unbeliever to the challenges of being a teacher, Alexander finds ways to simplify many of the trials and triumphs that people experience as they walk towards having a closer relationship with God. While this book is not ground-breaking, it is refreshing in its simplicity. Alexander succeeds where many authors fail in expressing the maturation process of Christians. He encourages young Christians to think "I can do that!" I recommend this book to teenagers and college students who are beginning their walk with God. They will realize that they have a long way to go, but the walk is achievable.

Thanksgiving 2010

The Willis family Thanksgiving was hectic, busy, wonderful, exciting and so much fun! Since both me and my sister's family were spending Thanksgiving day with our in-laws, our side of the family took a trip to Chattanooga to celebrate and have some family time. It was so much fun! We went to the Science Center, the aquarium, went out to eat and just enjoyed spending time with each other! Richard was in Denver for a conference during the first part of the trip but flew back and made it just in time to go to the aquarium with us.

The week of Thanksgiving we went to Henderson to visit family. We had SO much fun and Walker LOVED being around Gran and Grandad, LB and Carter, Aunt Becky and Uncle Damon and Pop.

Walker was SUCH a trooper and did a WONDERFUL job with all of the traveling. I mean we visited and spent the night in 4 different cities and spent a total of 24 hours in the car over about 10 days. For an 11 week old that is alot of traveling!

Speaking of Walker, he is getting SO big! We have our next appointment on Wednesday and I can't wait to see how much he has grown. He has outgrown pretty much all of his 3 month clothes and fits comfortably into 6 month clothes. He loves, loves, LOVES to talk, squeal and squiggle. He has the biggest, sweetest smile that will totally melt your heart. Walker has also been getting into a WONDERFUL routine. He typically sleeps from about 7:30 or 8PM until 3:00AM eats and then sleeps again until 6:00 or 6:30. Last night he actually made it to 4:30!! WOOHOO! :)

Baby boy can also roll over from his tummy to his back. He is SO close to rolling from his back to his stomach. He will get up on his side and just chill out there for a couple of minutes and then roll back. When he is on his stomach he can just about push up with both arms straight...almost! He is getting to be such a big boy! :)
