S'up is that I'm totally absorbed with this:and this:

and this: (just the one on the left) and that's a good thing. I'm just thankful for each minute....

even if I am spending hours (upon hours) after school in the car, being this:

but I wouldn't trade it for anything. No sir.

I read this on my trip to New York. You've gotta pick it up. Unique, refreshing, encouraging and a true story.
A little earthly window into that very real place called heaven.
Get it today. They have it at Sam's for ten bucks.

And of course what's up this time a year is always, always basketball.
And MORE basketball.
After a gut-wrenching start to the season
(I think we were 5-12 at one point - this is cause for misery),
we recovered at the end and won, I think 10 in a row!
We lost a tough one last night on ESPN2,
but God is good when we win and He's good when we lose.
I found myself praising Him despite the loss.

Ah! I had one of these!

And I mention that because I got this from a dear friend! Looking forward to taking it in.

Experiencing more of God's love and presence.

Not just going through the motions. A paradigm shift.

I love what I saw on Twitter (yes, I joined twitter! @anniehank)...

C.S. Lewis: God is basic Fact. He must not be thought of as a featureless generality. He is the most concrete thing there is.

And THAT's What's UP.

LOVE those pics of the kids!! So much personality oozing from those cuties!

Love the book Crazy Love - When I started reading it, I had a highlighter in one hand, but then I realized that I was just going to end up highlighting the entire book!

Thanks for the recommendation on a Heaven book. You might also pick up Randy Alcorn's Heaven for Kids sometime. I had read the adult book, but it is hard to get through because of all of the theology. Then we discovered the kids version and just so happened to be reading it when their aunt went to be with Jesus - can you say perfect timing?

I know I wished you a happy bday on FB, but I want to say it again: Happy birthday to a sweet, beautiful woman full of grace!

And, last, thank you so much for your very sweet comment! :)

What a great line..."God is Good when we win...and when we lose." AMEN! I also loved GOD IS BASIC FACT. He is "I AM."

Finally back on the computer and loved having a couple of your posts to get me back in action!

Hope your b'day was fantabulous!!!
