I love all these people and these pics of them. Family and friends are blessings from God!

Picture of the Day

I continue to be fascinated with the sky. This weekend, God has truly created some amazing sites using big fluffy clouds and His light. I am comforted by His creation which is only one more thing to confirm to me that HE IS ALIVE!

This evening’s sky:

Eggs

Here are a few of our egg designs for this year…

We have always decorated eggs each year.  I can’t remember a year of my life not doing it.  This year, my youngest child let me know that the EMPTY egg symbolizes the EMPTY TOMB!  He even had to take an empty egg to his teacher.  I’m so proud that he gets it.  Both of my children know the true meaning of EASTER… it really has nothing to do with eggs or a furry little rabbit.  We all know that JESUS gave all so we can have all.  This is my favorite “holiday” because of the gift we receive in that empty tomb.  How ironic, right!?  Not really…JUST AWESOME!

 

Eggs.

 

Grocery shopping reminds me of that classic Dr. Suess book…
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like grocery shopping.
Sam I am.

I do like cheese tho, but this isle always overwhelms me!

moments

 

 

From Luke 18:

Just imagine having a meal with one of your best friends for the very last time today.  Right now.

What would you eat?  That doesn’t even matter does it?  If you KNEW it was the last time you saw them, you’d be more concerned with WHAT you could share and you’d make certain they knew you loved them. You might look them in the eyes more, ask them more personal questions and savor the time (not the food) you get to enjoy with them. You’d make sure the moments you were having are full of love, laughter and life.

You can never be certain what moment may be your last chance to tell others you love them…you are sorry..you care about their opinion.

What if your friend KNEW it was their last time with you?  AND THEY TOLD YOU THIS!?!  They could predict the future…but you didn’t hear them, you didn’t understand what they were saying or maybe you just didn’t accept it and refused to listen.

Jesus did this …He told his disciples, but they didn’t understand what He was trying to tell them.  This is so sad to me.  Maybe God didn’t want them to know so they wouldn’t treat Jesus any differently?  Or maybe He wanted to spare them the pain and absolute confusion it would stir up, not that once it did happen there wasn’t utter chaos, but perhaps God thought this would shelter them for a little longer.  I mean, they were just humans, how could they REALLY understand???  Just like we all don’t truly understand things until we are personally a part of it. 

One lesson, I believe, we should get from this is to LISTEN. TRULY LISTEN. Don’t take life and people for granted. You never know when you won’t see someone again or how a once in a lifetime chance may zoom on by because you weren’t paying attention.

Life is not about how many moments you have, but what you do with the ones God allows you to have. 

What will you do with the ones you have…left?

Think about it…

We’re all in this together!

Love.

Serve.

Be second or even third.

Hold the door.

Smile.

Offer support.

Think of others.

Give.

“…All who lift themselves up will be brought low, and those who make themselves low will be lifted up.” Luke 18:14

The student council I advise ran for a state office and the last three days have been hectic, insane, chaotic, interestingly fun and AWESOME all rolled up into one huge STU.CO.TASTIC trip!

I’ve had students amaze me and make me crazy and make me PROUD.

We didn’t win the office at state, but all my students are WINNERS! …they did a great job and deserve to be proud.  I am proud of all of ‘em and can’t wait to see all the future greatness that comes out of this bunch!  They worked so hard at doing so many projects this year that help CRUSH CANCER which is something I am on a continuous mission to do (among many other things, of course).  I could list all the projects they created and completed, but I’d be typing my fingers off.   I just hope all this stu.co. stuffbgave them life long lessons that support them through anything they come up against in their SOON TO COME adult life.  (man, I’m going to miss this year’s seniors as I do so many of my past ones!)

I’m one SUPER DUPER BLESSED Stu.Co. Advisor. —and I’m exhausted!  HA!  No, really.

GOTTA

LOVE

IT!!!

The ones I’m so proud of:
