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))
