Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous! B and I knew we couldn’t possibly waste it sitting at home, so we took a little trip down memory lane to visit the Museum of Natural Science. Shortly after we paid and entered, however, the loudspeaker interrupted our exploration to inform us the Museum was closing early for an event. Needless to say, that got us moving! Cramming the entire museum into a little over an hour was a difficult feat, but I can successfully say I left with a newfound knowledge of how to “mummify” a person. Any takers? As a biology major and science guru, B was fascinated by pretty much everything, and I’m pretty sure if security didn’t come to escort us out, he would have stayed all night. My favorite exhibit of the trip was undoubtedly the gemstone vault. An entire room filled with breathtakingly beautiful stones and jewels? I’ll take it!
Since it was still pretty early in the day when we left, much fun was still to be had, and Hermann Park offered the perfect place for some sunshine and fresh air. With so much of our time spent working at the office or sitting in summer school, walking around by the water and wildlife at the park was extremely refreshing–even if it was in the middle of the city! Along our jaunt, we ran into a small pack of ducklings who we couldn’t help but gawk over for a while. As if their tiny, spotted yellow bodies and blue beaks weren’t precious enough, these ducklings were incredibly friendly and made both of us laugh as they waddled in perfect order behind their mom. After an eventful first visit to Hermann Park, I highly recommend it to anyone trying to find a place for a beautiful run or restful reading spot amidst the hustle and bustle of Houston.
Days like this are such a powerful reminder of how God’s beauty is easily found in a place or a time when we least expect it. After a long week of work, this started off my weekend in a spectacular way, and I couldn’t be more thankful for all the laughter and love of yesterday. Wishing you a joyful weekend as well!
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
