A must read!!!

Sorry for the long post BUT I read this recently. It is from the author of a book that I am currently reading. His name is Mark Batterson. Anyway here is the excerpt

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Consider the lilies. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don't let whats wrong with you keep you from worshipping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away. Chase the Lion!

The book is called "In a pit with a lion on a snowy day." It is based on 2 Samuel 23:20-21

Congrats to Curt and Lindsey Anes

Last night we were blessed to attend Curt and Lindsey Anes wedding. It was such a special night for the boys to see all the old GVSU football boys again. It is incredible to see these boys 5 years later and the bond that they share. They have all gone their own successful ways in life and yet they have this bond they will forever share as team mates. Very cool!
Curt and Lindsey with their adorable son Brenden, he is one day older than Gracie. What a gorgeous bride and handsome groom they were. Brenden in his tux was such a doll. Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day.
Dan and I had a great night out while Gracie partied with Gramma and Gramps Carlson. I was slightly tired being in the middle of three night shifts in a row. But nonetheless, we had a really great time.

Gracie's first day at the zoo

Sunday, September 09, 2007

Cute baby bird in the budgie cage
Beautiful African parrot.
Gracie loved petting the goats and other animals in the petting zoo.
Yes, she did pull the cows hair out and put it in her mouth. Gross! Mom to the rescue so she didn't choke.

I love my cousins!!!!

Yesterday I had such a fun playdate with my cousin Maddie and Auntie Lolo. We went for a walk, got caught in the rain, had lunch with Jojo and Thys at Arnies, shopped at the toy store- Aunt Candy's, and then she came over again at night time to hang out some more. What a lucky gal am I?
Before our walk we played in the grass together and I gave Maddie a big slobbery smooch while she hugged me. How cute! Then you won't believe it, my other cousin Jonah came over to play at night also. Gramma stopped by after her and Jonah went to dinner (Aunt Kelli and Uncle Sean had an anniversary). We had SOOOO much fun just the three of us. Jonah got Maddie giggling, which then made Gracie giggle. What a blast!
