Tackle it Tuesday

So this weekend I went to my first Scrapbook/Craft weekend and had a wonderful time!!! I got so much organizing done and had a great time fellowshiping with the other women. It was also nice to get away from the daily grind. As I drove up to Okuma I stopped several times to take pictures. I tried to catch the sunrise, but it was a cloudy day and all I got to see was the sky become brighter.

As I sat there the song How Great is Our God came to mind. It was amazing to be able to sing it out loud right there in the middle of His beautiful creation!!!! One thing I think we put off is spending time with God. So if you haven't taken time to talk with your Creator today, do so now!!
(don't forget to pause my playlist)

Here is how I did over the last week and things yet to be done. Don't forget to check out what everyone else is doing today at Tackle It Tuesday!!

Last Weeks Running To Do List:
