Texas has never been a place that I have had a burning desire to spend a lot of time in. It has nothing to do with the people from Texas, I love the people and have a lot of friends from Texas. It has more to do with the landscape. Coming from the lush, green hills of West Virginia, the dry land of Texas just didn’t seem so appealing.

Well, with the generosity of a friend’s house on Lake Travis and the fact that our good friends, Amy and Troy Douglas and their new baby, Audrey, had just moved to Austin, we packed our bags and went on vacation to Texas.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The land was definitely dry, but Lake Travis was AWESOME!!! The landscape reminded me and my friend Amy of the San Francisco Bay Area where we went to seminary. The house we stayed in was more than we could have ever asked for. It was AMAZING!!! We watched the sunset over the lake on the back porch every evening and it was simply BEAUTIFUL! I’m not sure when I will get back to Texas, but my whole perspective of the landscape has definitely shifted.

Spending time with our friends Amy, Troy and baby Audrey was FANTASTIC! Audrey is so precious and we just enjoyed the fellowship and relaxation that we experienced with them. It was so NICE!

Here are some pictures from our trip!

New Songs!

I have started writing and recording some music. The recordings are a bit amateurish, but I am thankful to even have the opportunity to record them. I don’t claim to be an amazing songwriter or singer, but it has been fun to see what God lays on my heart come to life. If you are interested or just curious, you can find my new songs at http://www.myspace.com/amyrosegraham – Amy Rose Graham on Myspace Music!

Hope you like them!

My God Saves and Psalm 19
