11 Sanford, Florida

Updated: May 30, 2022

Dates: February 21-27, 2022

This little town was very peaceful. I chose it specifically to get caught up on work. There isn't much to see so I won't be tempted to go exploring each day.

While waiting for my check-in time at the cutest little rental on a quiet road, I found a coffee shop with a big porch overlooking a lake. I changed my MG Graphics pricing and processes back in January and have yet to implement them on my website (as of this writing on May 23, it's still a work in progress). #cobblerskid

My clients come first! 🤷🏻‍♀️

Back to the scenery. It was warm enough to only need a light jacket as I sipped my pumpkin latte. I resisted the craze for so long. I now get the addiction to pumpkin spice everything.

During the week I did manage to run a few times with the sunrise.

And I even spotted some cattle! As a girl from the country, seeing livestock pulls at my heartstrings a bit.

By the end of the week, I'd made friends with my hosts who invited me to Sanford's Annual Porch Fest. A dozen homes with porches volunteer to have bands throughout the day. The streets shut down traffic. Food trucks are strategically placed. It was a fun event!

I even made a friend from Kansas! Not a KU fan myself, but when you see something familiar so far from home, the battlelines get blurry.

The Church

A few reflections from the masses I attended at Nativity Catholic Church:

  • Challenges are necessary to grow. (Timely, since this week I had a challenging work conversation to manage. And it took all I had to keep my mouth shut and smile instead of telling the lady where she can take her opinions.)

  • All things are possible for him who believes. Mark 9.23

  • Catholic Guilt is an indication we have more of our heart to give to Jesus.

  • To what extent did we protect ourselves from COVID? Do we treat sin the same way?

  • And a reminder to invite God into all of my plans!

The Streets had us all over for a very delicious home cooked meal. I haven't eaten with friends since Pensacola so I looked forward to this all week! The food was good, but the conversation was spectacular. These souls are faith-filled inspirations and just what my heart needed to refuel. Click on any of the links above to see the ministries they're in and support the good work they do.

A note to my my devoted readers:

You're still on my email list. I'm just really behind posting! Catching up now so be ready. 😉

Here's to catching up,
