Random Thoughts

"This is the place God has for me at this very moment in my life. I feel like I am standing on the threshold of something that will change my life forever."

I have a friend doing mission work in Ireland, and this was at the end of his email update. It's a great feeling to believe you are right where God wants you to be, doing what he wants you to do . I don't feel like that right now, but I have. I remember when I was a Leadership Camp counselor and felt like God had been preparing me my entire life for that summer. Sometimes everything in life clicks.

It's a cool Sunday afternoon. I've opened my windows to let the breeze in. Perfect atmosphere for watching football. Ah, football season. Way to go TCU! It's not popular to root against the local team, but I can't help it. I ran some errands yesterday, and I could tell it was game day. Home or away, fewer people are out on game days. Works for me.

I want one of the new iPods! The clip iPod shuffle is so cool! Perfect for exercising. Much more functional than the shuffle that hung around your neck. Who wants something bouncing against their chest during a run.

I almost through the first season of 24. I'm to the span of episodes I missed when I moved from London to Ireland. It's interesting to watch the first season after I've seen all five seasons. Jack will say something like, "I'm the last person you want to see if I don't get my wife and daughter back alive." I'll think, "Classic Jack Bauer." But it's the first season, so technically it's not classic Jack. It shows you how well the writers have done at making the Jack character consistent through five seasons.

Will my Cowboys win tonight? If not, they will be 0-2. We're playing at home, so I think we'll win. Go Cowboys!

Jamie-
I appreciate the thoughts about feeling like "everything clicks". Somedays as a mom I feel like it is what I was always made to do, but others I feel like I'm still looking for my "here and now purposes".

I wish you lived closer to run together. I'm just trying to get back into shape (post-Korben)!

Cowboys did win.

It seems like you've tapped into a benefit of living past your earliest adulthood. I'm also glad to be able to look back and see God in my life throughout my history, espcially when going through a time when I'm not sure what I'm doing or if there is any big message he is trying to get to me. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

How was Pat Green?

I am so grateful for days cool enough to leave a window open!

Good luck on your athletic goals. I don't know how you girls run. I really have a hard time even walking at a quick and steady pace, so I'm a workout dvd person.

The new nanos are too small, although I like the clip idea rather than the wrapping it around your arm or hanging it around your neck. I'd lose it or accidentally wash it reeeeally fast.
