2 Years Ago In New York

Two people. One road trip. A delicious experience. Wanted it for two years. Sat on it for two years. Couldn’t let it go. Now is the time. A dream which may soon be a reality.

Manhattan character

Unmatched Skyline

Central Park

New York driving etiquette in a nutshell!:)
Food to die for (although living as a local, this meal would be a splurge I realize!)

An update of our unfolding plans:

  • Leave for New York on Saturday at noon and will stay for a week, returning home next Sunday (we’ve had Air Tran tickets lying around for a year now that we got at a raffle last year for an incredible deal…can be used any where in the U.S. before this May 31st). Not bad, eh?!
  • Rick hopefully has a job interview lined up with a company which is part affiliated with his current company and is very interested in Rick’s skills
  • Will be searching out apartment prospects (Craigslist has given us hope that there ARE some affordable prospects!)
  • *Praying (which, incidentally, I feel this word is used so widely yet what does one really mean when they way they’re praying? It just hit me tonight that this word really means something and I use it too flippantly. What do I mean when I type this seven letter word and say Rick and I are praying about this (and every aspect of our lives?) I think this quote I found by long ago preacher Charles Spurgeon describes the essence of true prayer best:
“Let us give to God our hearts, all blazing with love, and seek his grace, that the fire may never be quenched; for it will not burn if the Lord does not keep it burning. Many foes will attempt to extinguish it; but if the unseen hand behind the wall pour thereon the sacred oil, it will blaze higher and higher. Let us use texts of Scripture as fuel for our heart’s fire, they are live coals; let us attend sermons, but above all, let us be much alone with Jesus.”
