Part of the fun was telling the staff how Christy affectionately refers to the place as the "spa." They all laughed... mostly because SPA, it is not.... but none-the-less a girl can dream... or pretend.... which is what we did. This is my photo journal of our day at "the spa" I will say though that even in that, I did put some restraint on myself with both capturing moments and publishing the work.
The name of the facility is Evergreen and it's a nice place. I think the staff was very helpful knowledgable and accommodating.... they do a lot to make you feel comfortable.... like offer you special blends of coffee and magazines.
They do make you stand on a scale though....
Go figure. Well one thing is certain, you can learn a lot at the "Spa."
Here she is with wrapped up elegantly in warm comfy blankies (to open up her pores...)
Ahh.. a day at the SPA....
relax and enjoy.... the long tedious process....
they have it all in stock.
But at the spa, we bring our own Bon Bons!
The sign reads:
"There is life even in the darkest of moments."
Lovely sentiments.... but we thought it said "lite" at first glance, (the top part of the L and the I and the F in the word "life" is in green.. the T remains and is in white...a little trick on the eyes... a little play on words... light and lite and darkness...)
to which Christiy wondered if they meant something like "lite beer" or what?
It is a lovely sentiment, but light is spelled wrong and truth is...life and death are opposites just like light and darkness. At some point they are mutually exclusive. However, JEsus did say that he is the way, the truth and the life...
the light that has come into the world and the light that shines in the darkness.
IF there is life even in the darkest moments... I would attribute it to the fact that God raised Jesus from the dead... talk about a dark moment... THAT would be it. Death.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)God is the one who gives mankind both light and life... and hope in times of darkness....
Thanks be to God there is life...
even in the darkest moments.
