Missouri Valley College hosted "valleypalooza" a family weekend in which we were invited to partake.  It was MVC's first home football game and families were fed a nice dinner beforehand and entertained by the dueling pianos...I think that was really their name, they loud.  Regardless, we had a good time and watched a good football game, I love football.

So stinkin' cute.


Firsts - 2013

Our first son's first year of college!  Christian is attending Missouri Valley College in Marshall, MO.  He is playing golf and he is a dual major in Music and Business...I know, we'll see what happens.

Christian with his golf coach, signing his letter of intent.
We moved him into his dorm....*sniff, you can take that sniff two ways...tears or a dorm full of stinky young men.
Cameron's first day of his Junior year of high school...isn't this a great pic?  This is what he thought was an appropriate first day of school picture.
 Christian's first golf tournament, it was a tournament at Evangel University in Springfield so I took a day off and we followed Christian around in a golf cart and watched him play.
*Note: I am playing catch-up.

My Indescribable God

I am blessed beyond blessed, if there is such a thing.  I am in awe of God, He amazes me, humbles me, uses me for His glory and purpose even when I feel unusable, humiliated, fearful.  He really is indescribable. 

I can see His hand working in my life, molding me, changing me into what He wants me to be...more like Jesus.  He has given me a deeper love for people, opened my eyes to see their need, and enabled me to show them love in ways I have never known before. 

He has strengthened the gifts He has given me, stretched me, and given me opportunities to serve Him in more and more ways. 

He prepared me for these things and is preparing me for future things.  I know I will look back at this and be in awe again at how far He has taken me in my walk with Him and where I will be. 

He has used and is using my surrender to be freer in my worship to Him, to keep me eternal minded, to love people more, to hunger after His Word. 

I am grateful and thankful, and so unworthy. 

God is good.

Since Anything

Since my 'Anything' study, it seems I have been consumed with too many things to do, it's at these times that I need to be purposeful about sneaking/taking special moments to be with Jesus.  I have a tendency to get too caught up in what I'm doing and lose sight of just how much intimate time with the Lord I really do need.  I long for it but then try and squeeze it in which then makes me feel shallow and hypocritical.  God is giving me some really incredible opportunities and I feel like I'm blowing it. 
"Have mercy on my, O God, according to your abundance mercy blot out my transgressions."
Psalm 51:1
Lord, help me be completely surrendered to You, keep me on my face, use me to make You famous.
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise." Psalm 51:17
