Imago Dei


This is Po. He was gifted to me two summers ago by a family I love dearly. He was just a tiny thing then. He's still pretty tiny, but I just put him in a bigger pot and I'm hoping he spreads his roots around a bit and grows. Others have prayed the same for me and I suspect it's working.


I don't feel short. I'm just accustomed to everyone being taller than me. But folks, these are crop jeans, meant for normal sized people. On me they're just regular jeans. That's short folks. Short.


This past weekend the non-profit I work for held that Back to School event I told you about. We gave away over 2500 backpacks and the line of people wrapped around the entire parking lot for hours, hours I tell you, in 100 degree weather. Kids got free hair-cuts, stuffed backpacks, hugs, and lots of smiles and high fives.


I have an actual allergy to watching anything with three or more parts (with the exception of BBC films). I also like that I haven't seen so many films people consider epic and must-sees. But I decided to stick it to the man and watch Lonesome Dove—I mean, it's on Netflix, so it's easy. People kept telling me that I would love these two characters. And just between you and me, I do.


So this happened.


Because I'm lazy or because I'm narcissistic 
and I want you to love my life as much as I do, 
here's a peek: 
These are my roommates and me. We do life together. 
I tried to make this in time for Christmas, but it didn't happen, 
so now it's just my desktop background. 
I love these girls. More every day.

Today Season made Chai Indian-style. 
She's our own personal chaiwala.

Sometimes a girl just wants some good ole peanut butter and jelly on rye bread.
And I won't lie, I put corn chips on this sandwich. 
Don't judge me.

When I was little my dad had one of these that he kept on his desk, near piles of paper samples. 
I'd watch him design logos and fan myself with the colorful book. 
Now this colorful little book is my faithful friend at my own desk.

Topping my list of favorite websites these days is The Great Discontent
I won me a few of these stickers from them this week—I'll advertise for them. 
I will.

My church is going to start walking through the book of Galatians this weekend. 
I'll be walking through it with my homegroup in June, but I want to get a start on it before then. 
Day one down and already looking forward to the wrecking in my soul. Ha!

 I love New York's spectacular sunsets and I miss them.
So, I'm grateful that though I may not have mountains or rivers here in Texas, 
we get sunsets that rival upstate's. 
I'm grateful for that. So grateful.
