I have had bunches of thoughts going through my head. So let’s sort a few out, shall we?
*today is quiet. maybe a bit too quiet? Sara is on her way to Kentucky with a church mission trip. Hints of the life to come, in a few years. What will the “empty nest” be like?
*However, we had full out girl fun this week – road trip to Dallas for ……..are you ready?…….the Jonas Brothers concert! (Sara’s main birthday gift). We had a blast, even though it was a million degrees. and very crowded. (sold out). I am still sorting out my thoughts on this one, but here’s a few…..
-the venue sold me a $4.00 bottle of water, then had to KEEP the top! Have you heard of this? I never had, I was in shock. Apparently, they are used as weapons. I kind of felt the need for a weapon at that point. I had to walk around outside, with a topless bottle of water. wow. wow.
– I had not been in a really LARGE gathering in a long time that was not all about worshipping our God. Interesting. Oh, they appeared to be worshipping, just not our God. Great place to people watch. But some were scary to watch. Realities of the world, and the state it is in. Makes me really yearn for Christ to return. soon.
-After sweating for almost 4 hours, we finally got to see the “JONAS BROTHERS”. you know what? Don’t tell anyone, but I actually grew to love them. They were adorable, and they worked hard to give a great show. They went for 1 1/2 hours without stopping. Well, they changed clothes once, but they hardly stopped. We must pray for these young men – they have potential to keep their morals, and values intact. However, it will be hard with tens of thousands of girls going crazy over them, show after show after show! Please, Lord, let’s see some young men stay true to You!
-Girls can really scream. really loud. and forever.
– My own girl’s smile – it was all worth it. She is totally worth long hot drives, long hot lines, and lots of screaming. she loved it. her friend loved it. It was real good. I’m humbled and thankful to be her mom.
*I’m watching out the window – my two dogs – the two year old one, and the puppy – are “playing” together – they remind me of when the boys were little, and tussled on the floor. So cute. I’m thankful they are friends. (the dogs, and the boys!)
*I am content. truly thankful, grateful, and at rest. I pray you are as well. May we give God all the glory, and praise, this glorious day. His absolute best to you this day!
