Auntie Kay

I have found the most addicting thing in the world. His name is Hudson James Notti... my one and only nephew.

My heart has a soft spot for little boys- always has and always will. Now that one belongs to me, I'm over the moon. I'm also way behind. I've got lots of Spiderman, Superman and Batman to catch up on! The world of superheroes can't be a mystery if I want to be the coolest auntie on the planet.

Good thing I still have a gorgeous niece to pull me back into the realms of all things feminine... otherwise I might find myself neglecting my closet full of heels. *shudder*

Happy Easter

I'm preaching at Chi Alpha tonight about Disappointment with God. In a conversation over my text of choice, my friend and I discussed if it's okay to be disappointed in the Almighty...
I don't know that I'm one to give people permission, but I definitely believe we all have potential to suffer from this discomfort. May I even venture to say that it is a healthy "wrestling match" (that's for you Scott) that is vital to our testimony.
If our Testimony is designed to be wielded as a weapon that helps others overcome (Revelation 12:11), wouldn't it reason that it gains strength from confessions of being dumbfounded by the ways of God, only to find He wasn't letting you down but rather lifting you up. So often we are surprised by Him meeting our needs in ways we could never have orchestrated, and in those moments I'm convinced we taste the sweetness of His resurrection.
And as the disciples discovered, the resurrection was the ultimate answer to their utter disappointment.

Resume Rhetoric

It's a sad moment to realize your limitations. Some things in life will never make it on my resume. Sobering is the thought that I shall never make it as:
A Soldier... I could NEVER survive the Army.
A Voting Poll Booth Attendant... they can't laugh.
An Air Traffic Wand Waver... lighted sticks!!!??? I could NEVER control myself.
A Jewish Rabbi... Yamakas aren't very flattering.
A Tour Guide... my "good sense of direction" has gotten me in trouble as of late.
A Hermit... I really like people. And friends. (This is a picture of Private Laura LeGris and Megan Sherer (on the phone))

Patience is a virtue

I hate being left behind. But alas, it was required as the Mexico Missions team departed on Saturday. I could not participate this year. It was very hard to say good bye... knowing I would not be able to say hello- to some orphans that are very near and dear to my heart.

I can't wait to adopt some of my own... perhaps not out of this clan (although I know of one little boy I would gladly smuggle across the border) but one day to have children of my own is a dream so close to my heart I literally don't want to wait. I'd do it tomorrow. Well, not tomorrow. Tomorrow is Wednesday. It seems like an awkward day to adopt someone... but soon!

A Bloody Bummer

Should I be concerned that my recent course of speech has been peppered with British curse words? This sudden affinity for 'bloody' and 'bugger' can mean only two things:
1) I am a sinner
2) I have the itch... to travel that is.

Luckily my longings will be satiated soon. A week from yesterday I will be in Missouri for three days to visit my best friend as she graduates from basic training. The most delightful part of my visit will be the breaking of lent... where I will finally be able to consume peanut m&ms after 40 days of famish-ment. Perhaps my attraction to rubbish speech is due to abstaining from chocolate for almost six weeks! Profanity can only be a natural side-effect from a lack of the essential nutrients chocolate provides to the female system (or psyche). Am I right girls?

My advice to all of you who find yourself struggling with the same bloody problem as I, there is only one suggestion I can leave for you: stuff your trousers choc full of your favorite sweets and get the heck out of dodge for a day or two.

"Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt." Hosea 2:14,15

I published my soul on the web

I did it. I officially started a Flickr account. So hopefully you can enjoy some of the pics I've taken over the months. More will be coming, I promise.

I need to thank Lance and Jess for their encouragement (and patience) in asking me to do this. Any accolades belong to you (wink).
