A Cheerful Post

“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.” Psalm 139:7-8

Ummmm, let’s see… 

Do I need to get off of cute athletic apparel websites? YES! 

Somehow this morning I found myself perusing the pages of the online catalogs of retailers such as Athleta, lululemon, and Under Armour.  Not a good idea when you realllllllyyy do not need to be spending any dough on cutsie running clothes.  And I believe God sent me a sign because as I sat here looking at everything I would love to have, I felt a presence walk up behind me.  No, not God…the hubby.  Moment over.Winking smile  LOL~

He really doesn’t care if I buy stuff, but even I have a hard time shelling out the moolah for something that is just going to get stinky and sweaty.  But sometimes there IS a flaw in that system and something fabulous will end up in my “cart” and be on it’s way to me before I can stop myself from clicking “Confirm.”  Obviously today is not that day.  Phew, good.

I try to save my special running purchases for my races.  I suppose I can start looking around for something for my next marathon, which by the way, is in 88 DAYS!!!!!!  Eeeeeee!!!  I am so excited to run the GO! St. Louis Marathon on April 10!  I simply cannot wait. Smile

I have plenty to keep me busy until then, though, and many other things I need to focus on.  Like my first UPWARD practice, which was last night!!  It went so great!

I have 9 girls on my squad, but due to sicknesses going around, only 5 of them were there.  We did some warm-ups, some cheers, had some giggles and shared our devotion time.  I had the most precious little girls share their prayer requests with me, and one little girl who prayed for “a great season with her new Upward sisters.”  Oh, thank you, Jesus for each and every child who is participating.  I feel blessed to be their coach and to be a part of this program…I am believing God for amazing things to come from this season!  I appreciate every prayer that has gone up for our kids and our program…please keep it up!

School was back in session today, after yesterday’s snow day.  Want to hear something interesting I heard on the news this morning??  That right now 49 of the 50 states have snow on the ground. Isn’t that wild?!  Every state except Florida has snow on the ground right now.  Our little dusting is quickly melting, and I am so thankful that I don’t live in the New England states that are getting dumped on yet again.  It is brutally cold here, though…5* this morning when I got up.  Yikes!

Alrighty, I’m off to look through some cookbooks and find something to make for dinner.  It’s my last one this week because we have ballgames every night for the rest of the week…better make it good!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO MY NEWPHEW, BRAYDEN!!!!  I can’t believe it has been one year since I saw this precious little guy be born.  We are so blessed to have him as part of our family.Red heart
