Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

on the town.

we explored a bit of galveston tonight after a successful (and VERY full) day of conferencing. specifically, we were in search of local seafood for dinner. judy (last photo, center) remembered gaido's/casey's on seawall from a previous trip to the island so that's where we settled. my dad grew up in the galveston/houston area and it turns out he has eaten at the same restaurant many times. he said my grandparents loved to go there as well. the pablano pepper soup and casey's famous shrimp platter (grilled, fried, stuffed gulf shrimp + iced bay shrimp) were just what we were craving.

when my grandparents lived in texas, my grandddaddy worked for nasa and was involved in the spaceship that took the first man to the moon. so i was thrilled when i saw the front page from that day in 1969 framed and on the wall of a restaurant where my grandparents ate often at the time. so serendipitous and nostalgic. love it.

a quick trip to the chocolate shop put a sweet seal on a lovely evening.
