The group has varied from year to year but there are a core group of us who have been close friends for years. I tell these girlfriends, "No matter how you have to get me there, get me there!" We've become friends who carry one another to where Jesus is.
Think about it.
The faith of friends who love you can turn God's ear to your healing!
Luke 5:25 says, "Without a moment's hesitation he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God."
Year after year we all truly pick up what we've been lying on and go home praising God!

We are ruled by Christ's love for us. We are certain that if one person died for everyone else, then all of us have died. And Christ did die for all of us. He died so we would no longer live for ourselves, but for the one who died and was raised to life for us.We are careful not to judge people by what they seem to be, though we once judged Christ in that way. Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new. 2 Corinthians 5:14-17

I saw My Sister's Keeper this week. I knew nothing about it going in the theater except that it would be sad. So sad.

Yesterday was that day. The summer day I've been praying for, longing for and craving after since last year.

Today my daughter boarded a bus with eighty other elementary-aged children and headed for camp.

We just finished up soccer season. Yay! I love playing games in seasons. This is so much nicer than the one hour a week lessons we have had in the past. One hour each week for nine or ten months is very tiring. Soccer season lasted three days a week for eight weeks. Now we have a magical break. Rest. No practice. No games. No hourly, weekly lessons. Ahhh!
Julia did a really great job. She's been sleeping with her soccer ball for a whole year in an effort to get us to allow her to play this team sport. She convinced us. She loved it. She's a natural.
She loved playing forward. She loved being in the action. She was in her coach's words, "The new girl that won't stay back. No matter where she's told to stand she goes further into the action!" That's pretty much who she is in life. One who seeks the action. One who can't seem to stay back. (Yes, we are praying!)
She certainly doesn't get any of those skills from me! Team sports was not my thing. I love to watch her play. She's confident. She's enthusiastic. She loves to run. She loves to compete. She has the greatest fun doing it.

This time of year always gets me thinking. Pondering many things. July first rolls around and I spend time thinking of the sacrifices many others made for my freedom.

"Don't demand an audience with the king...It's better to wait for an invitation to the head table." Proverbs 25:6-7

Lately I've been tired. Exhausted really. Come to find out I've traded my life as a princess for that of a pauper and I didn't even know it.
