Sucking the marrow out of life...


Carpe Diem, Siezing the Day, enjoying the abundant life, whatever you want to call it - we certainly did it all at the RODEO. My girlfriends and I had a marvelous, incredible time soaking it all up. In the picture I'm enjoying the unlimited goodness of a deep-fried oreo. Yes, you heard me right - a deep fried oreo, also known as happiness covered in powdered sugar. It's like an oreo inside a donut hole. Life is good. We rode a carnival ride, explored the fun house, ate way too much food, bought cowboy hats, ate more food, laughed, cheered, and gasped in horror at the bullriding, calf scramble, and wagon races. We weren't too crazy about the likes of Toby Keith since he's pretty skanky. (Actually this morning I was thinking how grateful I am that I have fullness in my life without all that junk he was singing about. My Father is truly enough goodness for me!) Oh yeah, and my great friends just had their first baby yesterday! What a great gift Bailey will be to them and everyone she meets. It was great to hear Billy and Liz talking to her and hear her cry on the video. You can check it out yourself on the blog which you probably already have if you love them like I do. So yes, hard things happened today, I missed my Turkey friends, I heard about a bombing and another terrible accident in Turkey today and it squeezes my heart...BUT life is good. Our Father is gracious and good and rich and enough for all we need and desire! This week may He give you sweet fun breaths of joy in the midst of our crazy lives like He gave me last night.
