Janet Roller - Living Oak Ministries

Hi. I'm Janet Roller: wife of one, mother of two, lover of coffee and writer of songs. I have just finished my first fiction novel and I'm looking forward to watching how God uses the simple story to minister to others. God is a big deal to me. My goal each day is to wake up and declare, "This day is Yours, Lord. Show me what to do with it."

Ahh! Sweet Vacation

Today my family is heading down to North Myrtle Beach, SC for summer vacation! Matt's entire family continues the tradition of making our presence known the first week in June each year. Without-a-doubt, this is certainly an anticipated event by all 15 of us!

Somehow this year is different for me, though. I look forward to the beach's calming waves and warming atmosphere. My spirit needs a rest and inspiration. Don't get me wrong, the laundry and dishes are enough to inspire anyone! In fact, God has used the dishwasher to help me write a song (another day/another post). But now, I am looking for God to show up by the shore.

My kids are getting bigger and I am beginning to see the evidence of time passing too quickly. In just a few short years the small puddles of ocean water in low places of shore will no longer capture their attention.

So, until the day comes when little plastic pails aren't enough, I am cherishing these moments. This week, I will try to post but...if I don't, I'm probably sitting on the beach.

Terrible internet though. Can't wait to catch up on all I missed in the blogs while I was gone!
