the older you are, the more there is to miss

I used to paint and I kinda miss it. I gave it up for time and for Storm, and I don't regret it, but sometimes I just miss it a little...

black and white

Saturday was fun and dead tiring. I coached from 8:30-10:30 and reffed from 10:30 to 11:30. Then I left and played a basketball game and WON A TROPHY! WOOO! Then I rushed back to camp to ref, take a break, and ref again. Then I helped with Middle School BLAST. I was pooped. Pooped! Then I went to church on Sunday morning. Sunday was a BEAUTIFUL day! Our family went to the Mellow Mushroom downtown for lunch and we ate outside. Then, when Amy Grace and I finished our food, we walked around and looked at all the people and stores and restaurants. It was beautiful. Then I came home and watched TV and went to small group. When I got home I just laid on the couch and watched the Olympics and ate dinner.

This morning I woke up and it was rainy, dark, and I felt like crap. Surprisingly, after practice I felt much better. Then I tiredly coached and assistant coached. I am tired. Today wasn't that great. But there are great days like this weekend, and days like today make me love them more. Soon my life will change a whole lot, so right now I'm gonna be content with familiar, crappy days :)

I am oh so very excited about summer and college and my future! I used to feel sorta discouraged because for some reason I felt like my best days were behind me. That is not the case! I read Psalm 138 today, and verse 4 says: "The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever - do not abandon the works of your hands." For one thing, that verse makes me excited about how God will use me. Also, whenever I read Psalms I am struck by how forward David is. He sometimes sounds like he is ordering God around. Then I remember that David is a man after God's own heart! Man, do I want to be a woman after God's own heart! So I think that David has the right attitude. He sees God's glory, mercy, love, and power, and he spends most of his time praising God. However, he wants to please God and do His will. The only way for him to do this is THROUGH God, so he just asks! Feisty man, that David...

Christopher wanted me to talk about him more on my blog... so this is dedicated to him.

I used to be an only child; then he came along. One time I said, "I wish Christopher was never born!" to my mom. Well, I didn't know that was bad, but I got in hugeee trouble. Then we became friends because we moved to Georgia and lived in this crappy house that had squirrels living in it. We only had old neighbors, so no friends.. We came up with this game called the hugging game. You rolled two dice, and whatever it landed on, we would give each other that many hugs. We were bored. Really bored. Also, I taught him how to do jumping jacks and we played pictionary a lot. Then, FINALLY, we moved to another house. At this house Christopher played on a hockey team. By hockey team, I mean him and two other neighbors would skate around the culdesac. Somehow they actually convinced him it was legit.. One time he got really upset cause he was kicked off the team! Then we moved here and he was really annoying. Maybe because we were homeschooled and spent all the time together. I used to get in trouble for saying I hated him. Then he went to public school, and we became better friends. Now he is still in public school, and we are pretty good friends. He calls me weird all the time, but it is really to hide his own insecurity (HA. HA.) Anyway, here you go buddy! haha
