Orion's new trick

Our puppy can smile! I discovered this trick a couple weeks ago. It can keep us entertained for hours!! I've tried a couple times to video him smiling, but it never worked out...until tonight.


Golfing Queen

Well, If you have ever met my husband, even for a split second, you know that he is absolutely crazy about sports. All sports. If it keeps score, he's completely engrossed in it! I, however, am not.

Lately, Michael has been begging me to get into sports with him. We started running together last year, and that was really fun. We joined a softball team with some friends from church and that has been really fun. I guess Michael was trying to keep the streak alive and add another sport to the list of things we can do together.

So, today we went to the driving range to hit some golf balls. I've hit golf balls once in my life when we first started dating and it did NOT go well, so I wasn't really super thrilled about going, but oh well! We got out there and I was actually hitting lots of balls! Several of them went about 140 yards!! It was very exciting! Don't get me wrong though, I most definitely hit my fair share of "wiffs". It was really intimidating with Michael hitting awesome shots and the guy in front of me hitting awesome shots and then me barely budging the balls. Michael was so patient and encouraging. At one point I hit the ball no more than 20 feet and he lit up and smiled and congratualted me on an "awsome shot". It was really sweet :) I think he was so excited that I was actually out there with him that even my "wiffs" were awesome shots to him!

It was so much fun to spend a wonderful golf-filled afternoon with my hubby!

I like to move it move it!

So, I have most definitely been slacking on my runs since we finished the Bearathon, but I'll start again. Soon. :) Anyway, I found this website in Fitness Magazine a couple months ago and it's really neat! This DJ decided that there needed to be better workout music, so he created his own. And it's FREE! He created musc with certain beats per minute to help keep you on track with your running/jogging/walking/kickboxing/any other cardio. Steph listened to the songs throughout the entire race and loved it. Anyway, go download some songs and go for a run!

God's Timing... perfect. However, it is very unexpected sometimes. I'm pretty sure that when we're sitting there making plans (work, vacation, and just life in general) God is sitting above us just smiling, thinking "silly people, you have no idea what I have in store for you." We can't even come close to sceduling our own plans. God "knows the plans (He) has for us" and they are perfect.

Easter is the single day that sets Christiany apart from every other religion. Jesus didn't only die a horrible and brutal death, He arose 3 days later! How can you even begin to tell Him how grateful you are? Sometimes I just feel completely undeserving of his Mercy.

If you haven't seen the Passion Of Christ, you must. I find myself crying uncontrolably and smiling from ear to ear all at the same time. It breaks my heart that He went though so much pain, horrible torture and brutal death. All because He loves us so much! At the same time, I am overjoyed because I know that I am going to spend millions of years with Him in Heaven!

"But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed."
Isaiah 53:5

Lord, Thank you
