Throwback Thursday #13

October 27, 2015
Time to Pay the Piper!

I lost a football bet when Josh's Texas A&M Aggies beat my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks last fall. He took his time in delivering the flag that I was required to fly throughout the remainder of the football season. But boy, did he do it up good for me!
Darth Vader and Texas A&M
It is a fitting slogan though as I was sure that my Razorbacks could pull out the Win!

My office was filled with maroon and white balloons.  I broke out in laughter and hives just walking in...but I left it just like this until the balloons finally fell.

My office after the balloons fell.  You can't even see the chair that sits in front of my desk.  We chased down stray ones for a week!

Wish You Were Here

I woke up this morning feeling:

Sad
Heavy
Regretful
Disappointed
Overwhelmed


Today would have been my Daddy's 71st birthday.  

I miss him.
I grieve the loss of him in my life.
I wish that I had done things differently - like call him more often or make a big deal of his birthdays.
I regret that it has been months since I spoke with Donna and Cecily.
I am disappointed in myself.
I feel overwhelmed by all the happenings around me.

But as I sat down with my Bible and prayer journal, I was reminded that:

God is still on His throne.
Jesus' yoke is easy and His burden is light.
I am forgiven.
God is good...all the time.
The Holy Spirit never leaves me alone.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.


Amen!

Throwback Thursday #12

Coastal Conservation Association Concert 
September 26, 2015
Sam Houston Racetrack

Me and My Hero - to get him to a concert is a BIG...I mean H.U.G.E. deal!


My Girlfriends - Robin, Kelley and Stacy
I'm horrible at Selfie's and this was my worst picture -- but my girls sure looked good.


Eddie Money
The Best Show of the Night!

Grand Funk Railroad
Truly, I didn't realize how much of their music I knew by heart.
And the whole reason I went:
Lynyrd Skynyrd
A dream come true for me.

A fur hat, in Houston, in September, at an outdoor theater.
I don't know how he did that!
We also saw Atlanta Rhythm Section & Folk Family Revival.
It was a great night because we were with great friends and they went just because I asked them to.
