I had a breathtaking night! Yes, I would use the word breathtaking. I looked it up in the dictionary and it meant 'thrillingly beautiful, remarkable, astonishing, exciting'. That was exactly how tonight felt. I went to an ice skating rink with my homeschool group and it was the most fun I have had in a long time. The cool air rejuvenated my spirits, and the rsk-rsk of the blades against the ice filled me with joy. The laughs of groups of friends, the whispers of couples, the smell of coffee wafting toward the rink from a near by Starbucks, all added to the breathtaking feeling that was inside of me. Hmmmm.  I am so thankful that I am surrounded by my little group of friends. I see now how God stragetically placed them in my life. I don't think I was ever more thankful for my friends than today. Comment on this post if you had a "breathtaking" event or awesome friends this season or maybe in the past, and take time to thank God for placing those friends into your life.


  1. Well, I haven't had a breathtaking experience yet this season with my friends, but I will be having one with my cuz when I see her during the holidays. ;-)

  2. I'm sure I will experience a breathtaking moment as well when I see my cuz too ;).

  3. Well, Pure in Heart...I've had many breathtaking moments in my life. They usually do involve family, friends and nature. It could be something as simple as sharing a cup of coffee with a friend, snowshoeing under starlight with my family or walking by myself along a beach. I call them "heaven moments." ...and I am thankful for them all!
