Let Your Roots Grow

I don't know about you but I am counting the days until its time to garden, I just love watching things grow. Something every gardener knows is that in order to have a healthy plant you need strong roots, so that they can feed the plant and keep it upright as it starts to grow.


If you have ever lifted a packet of tomatoes at a store you'll notice that the roots have escaped the confines of the pot and grown down into the tray searching for something more.Those roots are the lifeline of the plant, they absorb what is in the soil around them for better or worse.
Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7 NIV
In much the same we absorb what is around us for better or worse, when we root ourselves in Him we absorb His presence. In the same way the roots of the plants must expand and seek new territory the roots of our life, our faith should be growing, ever seeking a stronger relationship with God.

Those roots are what will hold us firmly upright when the storm comes seeking to uproot us. Where are your roots? Which way are they growing? Are they strong? The only way that plant is staying upright is if they grow deep and wide, just out will not keep her upright when the winds pummel her branches.

We have to seek God in every area of our life, He must be the center if we ever wish to stay standing. The only way to do this is spending time with Him, spending time in the word and in prayer. Growing toward Him.

One Ocean Sea World Show

Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sea World, for the first time in many years. As always it wasn't a letdown!


While there we decided to watch the One Ocean show, dad wanted to sit in the splash zone- we out voted him. Somehow gallons of water in the middle of January and cameras don't seem to go well together.

This show was fun, upbeat and if you happen to sit in the splash zone- wet! These creatures are amazing up close!


It made me wish we had more time to spend here.

They are such amazing creatures.  So huge and powerful - so beautiful.


Every time I see them and makes me love the creatures of the ocean more and more.


Time for a snack. I could use one too, just not raw fish!

Dolphin Show At Sea World

Sea World has to be one of my favorite places! I love how magical it is, like being a kid... anything could happen. I've been here twice in my life, once for my second birthday and the second time for an early birthday present for my 18th birthday. I have to say, it's a great birthday present.


This show was amazing! I absolutely love dolphins so this was spectacular!


This show is so fun, and probably my favorite of all the ones Sea World offers.


I always liked dolphins but I really fell in love with them after Sea World. They taught me a lot about marine life and made me passionate about them.


They are creative and smart and love to have fun.


I could not believe their agility and their relationship with one another.

Such strength.  I had no idea they could jump so high or flip like this before going.

SeaWorld | California Trip Day 5

Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, under the sea. Admit it. You heard Sebastian from little mermaid's voice in your head didn't you?



Today we are heading to SeaWorld!



The last time we were here was for my second birthday.


There aren't a lot of people here because it rained this morning. I feel a lot better this morning.


But I can't smell anything. Grrrrrr! This darn cold morphs into something else everyday! We are just a skip from the beach, Mrs. Cottage and Brianna keep saying it smells wonderful. I can't smell anything so I don't know, but I can taste it! That's better than nothing I guess.


By the way, those cleaner fish in the picture up above were awesome! Seriously I want some!



There are so many amazing creatures here! Some I wouldn't want to meet in the wild, though. Some of the fish were absolutely stunning!


This pretty bird just was hanging out watching us as we said hello to the sea lions.  He didn't mind getting close en…
