If you’ve never been to a Gaylord (http://www.gaylordhotels.com/), you should visit one. We’ve been to the one in Dallas, too and they are impressive. They come complete with a mini shopping mall and restaurants. Although you don’t have to spend the night to visit, be prepared to pay for parking. They are a great place to take a walk and pictures on a cold winter or hot summer day.
"I've loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you'll remain intimately at home in my love. That's what I've done—kept my Father's commands and made myself at home in His love. I've told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature.." (John 15:9-11 MSG) I am learning to make my home in God's love through every season, including the loss of our youngest son. I have found Him to be faithful to lead, guide and strengthen me as I daily choose to turn to Him in surrendered trust. I share my struggles and the things I am learning here in hope that they will encourage you in your journey towards life and fullness of joy in His presence. "You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. " (Psalms 16:11 AMP)
