Random thoughts. . .

Today has been so fun-filled, I’m just beat! Something about the sun is so rejuvenating, but at the same time draining. Or maybe that’s my health issue–we’ll have to see. . . Here are a few quick thoughts:

1–Red Sox are at the top of the league, and they beat the Yankees last night. So what. We all know that the Yankees always overcome a tough beginning of the season. . . Duh. Don’t get too excited and count them out too early. Or in fact, maybe you should. It will make it more exciting later on when they kick Red Sox bum.

2–So exciting that modesty is getting more national press. Check it out here– and the bridal designer is who I got one of my wedding dresses from. To anyone looking for a stylish, affordable, modest wedding gown, definitely check out Latter Day Bride. Gorgeous materials and superior workmanship for far cheaper than David’s Bridal or any of those other places.

3–Love the weather today! It was 81 amazingly beautiful degrees here, perfect for setting up a little pool for Ava and spending some time out in the sun.

Here’s Ava exploring her new pool/gym, doing her classic twiddling her lips. Hysterical I tell you.

Everything has this “O” face after it now. Every sentence is punctuated with an O. It’s best when you can hear it.

Doesn’t she look like her daddy here?

4–Apparently Hillary has announced that if she is to be President, Bill will be an ambassador to the world. Smart move. She’d never make the news in Russia though– apparently more than 50% of their stories have to be positive by law. It’s not such a bad idea to have happy news, but legislating it??!? Umm. . .

5–So many people I know are at a crossroads in life. They are doing all they can to lead a Christ-like life, holding on to the rod with all their might, walking into the unknown. It’s leading them down paths they never before could have possibly imagined, but just as the possibility for greatness is there, the possibility for immense heartbreak remains. A friend commented on this:

I’ve decided to no longer waste a moment’s time on fear. We either trust God or we don’t. And if we trust Him, then we don’t doubt that He is working out a far grander plan than our puny minds can comprehend.

I know that every minute of this will be worth it when [my desires are realized]. No matter how long it takes for him to get there.

Put all your faith in God, every bit of it, and you won’t fear anymore either.

  1. Hey, even if the yanks aren’t beating the Sox yet—-A-rod is performing like we know he can! That enough is making me happy. Oh, and Pettite in pinstripes.

    She does look like Dan! Cute swimsuit btw.

    Bill as Ambassador to the world. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.
