Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

PICTURES!!!

So I found my camera...

It was almost hard to miss...but you know when you are busy and not really trying to look very hard for something...you just miss things....


Here is our wood stove...we got it new at Home Depot for half price!!!!!
Here is our sideboard...as my hubby calls it...not a cupboard but a sideboard. I have it decorated just like I like it, but I have to keep reminding everyone to NOT leave their stuff on it...;O)

I took a few pictures one day as I was walking down to the beach...I have to walk about a half mile through the woods to get there...


Almost there...if you look off into the distance you can see the water.

Here's the beach!!! (my favorite part)

Here is the pier for those who like to fish.

And here is the other side of the beach...we actually have a very long shoreline...but I can't fit that all into the picture...

I wanted to take more pictures, but it was really windy that day...
Also the beach is much deeper when it is low tide...these waters DO have salt in them...yes, we are close to the ocean. But I don't need the ocean to enjoy the beach...this is more than I could EVER ask for!
Blessings, Friends!

BTW...I am going to try to blog more often, but that is going to require me to be up MUCH earlier. I am going to try to start getting up between 5 & 6 a.m. Right now, as it stands, I just don't have the time to blog if I am NOT up early...anyway, who wants to sleep in when you live in such a beautiful place? Pray for me that I will be able to do this...I NEED to be up early and it is going to take a LOT of discipline...as baby girl STILL likes to be next to me at night... I HAVE been trying to get her used to her crib, but she still doesn't sleep all night...therefore, I don't sleep WELL all night long, but as I said before...getting up EARLY is my next priority...

The sideboard is beautiful & it might also be known as a buffet, but that's my guess. Praying for you for restful nights so getting up early is easy!! You just enjoy that beach for all of us!!
Many blessings, Mrs. C.

It looks like you found a little slice of paradise. That beach is beautiful!

Cozy looking woodstove and a pretty hutch...sideboard....cupboard...whatever you want to call it!!!

It's good to see you around again briefly!
