Green Grass & Sporty Spice

I can't tell you what seeing our grass for the first time in almost a month is doing for my mood!!! Our temps still aren't above freezing, but the sun seems to be warming certain exposed areas enough to get rid of the snow pack. It's funny, b/c my home area got snow this weekend (only happens every couple years) and my Facebook news feed is filled with "snow this" & "snow that." I'm honestly jealous. I can't wait to go back (soon?!?) and live in a place where snow is something special that people appreciate and stop for...and that's 100% gone 3 days later, tops. :-P I can't wait to no longer loathe it!
I also (re-)realized what a sporty spice I am today. Not participation-wise, but fan-wise. I've always been a crazed super fan & cheerleader for *my* teams, but I love that my whole family is in on it, as well. We're an NFL and now NASCAR (thanks to Will) family, and this week STINKS for sports! Daytona isn't for two more weeks, and the ProBowl tonight just isn't all that. Back in September, we started going to eat lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings after church, so we can see all of our games not broadcast at home. Growing up, watching football together was a big quality family time event for me; and with us going out, we all get to eat what we want, we're all together at our table instead of scattering about the house, there's lots of talk time over the course of a game with lots of action pauses, and JB stays awake & interacts with us, instead of napping. We were there after church again today, but with no exciting sporting events that we wanted to cheer, it was so boring. We just ate & left. And it really bummed me out! I can't believe how much I want to have sports on in the background of my Sundays!!! [Does JB realize how lucky he is to have married ME?!?!?! ;-)] These few weeks, end of Jan/beginning of Feb, are the only cruddy sports weeks for us all year, with no daytime NFL games or races, b/c NASCAR starts week after next and runs well into football season. I can't even believe I'm writing this out (about NASCAR; I've always been this obsessed with football) but it really does wonders to make our family come together & focus for several hours. I feel like we're floating around today in limbo...
And so yes, to touch on our personal state of family limbo - no news or decisions, yet. Praying that God will give us some answers this week, especially so that we can prepare the kids for wherever we're going to move next, (here in town or somewhere else.) I trust that however much time He gives us, though, will be as much they need, so. A few more great verses to ponder from our sermon this morning, all from John 14:
Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me [Jesus]. - John 14:1
You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it! - John 14:13-14


  1. Dear Lord, we are asking, in Jesus' name, for an answer to come to sues and jb. please open the right door for this move so that they can begin to prepare their family to step through it. open the door, Lord, this week. In Jesus' name. amen!

  2. That prayer made me misty!!! Thank you for standing in agreement with us!!! I'm repeating it over & over with the verses.
