I use a lot of words to say nothing.

I can easily say this has been our laziest, most relaxing Spring Break ever. I have slept in almost everyday (ranging from 7:30am to *ahem* 10:30am), we've hung out by the (dirty) pool and gotten sun, and we've spent 3 hours at the park- in one day. Yes, I can confidently say I am sucking every ounce of life out of this Spring Break.

I have been pretty diligent in my quest to eat well and workout everyday, despite the kids' Easter candy calling my name. And I can say with pride that the only casualties have been every last Mini Robin Egg- and what the kids don't know won't hurt them. Man are those things addicting (the candy, not the kids).

Tonight Big Hunk and I are volunteering with Compassion at the Rock & Worship Roadshow. I can't wait. I don't know if I'm more excited to see bands like David Crowder Band and MercyMe, or to help out with Compassion. I have just become so passionate about Compassion and want to help out in anyway I can. On April 18 I am handling the Compassion Sunday event at our church and I am so excited to see the Lord work. I received my box of CS gear yesterday, and it humbled me when I saw the stacks and stacks of kids looking for sponsors. Such beautiful faces, living in such dire circumstances. One of the boys, probably about 13, brought me to tears. His face just looked so sad and it looked like he had lived such a hard life. He's probably seen things no child ever should.

But I am so thankful for organizations like Compassion that are striving to change the very lives- and eternities- of these children. Giving them a hope and a reason to smile. Just letting them know that they are loved- not just by these families that sponsor them, but also by a Creator that knows every hair on their head. The two boys we sponsor have changed our lives- I so look forward to seeing families in our church changed the same way.

So anyway, I went on a little tangent there- I just wanted to say I am so excited about the concert tonight. ;) I just have a lot of words that jumble it all up.

I'll leave this (somewhat) brief and share a couple photos. Those speak a lot more than I do.


  1. I love both your shirt in the first photo and your dress in the last one! Oh and Tommie's hair is so BEAUTIFUL curly like that! What a fabulous looking family. :)

  2. I love your shirt in the first photo too! Very cool! I also know what you mean about being addicted to mini Easter eggs! :O


Hey you! I welcome all comments and love to hear from you! No one likes to talk to themselves. ;)
