Due to some Oklahoma Bloggers having a night out (Thank you Dawn's Diversions for organizing it), I have been introduced to some new blogs (new to me anyway) and one that I enjoyed immediately was Having a Ball. She posted a video that seems to have already made it around the Internet and somehow slipped by me.
It seems that God has been knocking at my door (& yelling through it ) lately, trying to encourage me in ever so subtle ways to EMBRACE EACH DAY!! This video was sending the same message and I got the message and I think that I just might be able to retain it for more than 48 hours. (That has been the routine in the past... I get the message, embrace, & slow down for about 2 days then life slowly, but surely, returns to normal).
I really have so much to say on this thought but I think that Lauren said it best as we stepped outside this morning to go visit her cousin.
"Hey Mom, look at this whole pretty world!
It's Pretty!! IT'S PERFECT!
(Hands held out high)
I LOVE YOU GOD!
I love her excitement and enthusiasm. Her zest for life and for this incredible world that God has put us on encourages me each and every day.
Of course this remarkably profound statement was followed by this one as we were then driving down the street behind a bright yellow van.
"Hey Mom, look at the van in front of us. It's not orange and it's not yellow, It's HOT yellow!!"
What can I say... it works for pink.
