I never thought it was possible to have too much sugar...ever. You have to understand that I was raised on kool-aid, pixie stix, mountain dew, candy, ice cream, tacos, hamburger helper, pizza, and hamburgers. The majority of my diet was sugar...happy, wonderful, sugar.
As an adult, I have made a conscience effort to cut back on sugar. I eat vegatables & fruit now. I try to have calcuium and fiber as a regular part of my diet....this is a huge step for me. However, I still probably intake more sugar than necessary on an hourly basis.
I'm currently in the middle of a sugar rush. I've got all of this energy and have sent some rather hilarious emails out to my volunteers. I am having random thoughts fly through my mind at the speed of sound. I'm wanting to tackle hug people. I have a barely contained desire to belly laugh so loud.
I want to paint really badly & I want to pen a very silly short story about an old woman named Myrtle and her best friend Ethel. I picture them as want to be super heroes who save nursing home patients from bad cafeteria food, worn out socks, and of course, the menacing Mr. Hoffensteffensteimerson (the resident casanova who steals sugar free candy from unsuspecting widows).
I'm hoping to avoid the crash...

Really? Do you want to mess with a dog that looks like this when she barks? I think not. She would definitely keep us safe.
It's fun having a fake adopted dog...no pooper scooper to worry about, no vet visits: just playing with her and making sure she has some treats....oh, and taking a ton of pictures of her. So who knows, perhaps when we get married one day, we'll be able to adopt a puppy as funny as Cosita.
Yes, we know that's an uphill battle because, seriously, check out how funny her face is!

Hebrews 13:8: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Despite all of the changes and the inevitable season's passing, I don't have to worry. God is in control. He is the one that holds the future. He isn't bound by time & He knows what's next. Proverbs 20:24: "The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?" It's time to stretch my faith...it's time to trust.
I'm actually excited about this change. I don't even know what's going to change (possibly everything) and I'm excited. Abram didn't know how his life would change when God told him to go. Yet not knowing where to go or what to do, Abram obeyed.
Noah was given specific instructions without fulling understanding and he obeyed. Genesis 6:22: "So Noah did everything exactly as God commanded him." That's my prayer for this new season: that I would do everything exactly as God commands.
It's exciting times...and I can't wait to update on what the next season is.

So many thoughts, so little time to blog...
