Numero Dos

Hey Theta sparkle! 

I’ve been a very busy girl the last two weeks which means this will be a long post (woot):
  • First of all and most importantly: I bought a really cute purse for summertime AND for when I go to NYC at the end of this month (happy dance!!!)
  • (Kate Landry “Dottie” Cross-Body Bag)
  • Shout-out to Erik, Sergey, Nadir, & Victor: my new friends that are in CIRQUE DREAMS ILLUMINATION. They were here for the “Run Away With Cirque” auditions and I was around them most of last weekend. Sergey, Nadir & Victor are from Uzbekistan & Russia (respectively) and they went to their first baseball game! I stole the pic from Nadir, but here they are at the game.  
  • Victor, Erik, Nadir, Sergey
  • The show will be in OKC at the Civic Center Music Hall Tuesday, May 4th – Sunday,  May 9th and then they are road tripping-it up to Tulsa to the Tulsa PAC Tuesday, May 11th – Sunday, May 14th. You should come! I’m super excited about this show.
  • Today, I finished N.D. Wilson’s Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl. It’s a poetic view of this world and the Author and Creator of it. The imagery in it is overwhelming and beautiful.

  • Now I’m reading Don Miller’s Blue Like Jazz. I’ve heard great thing about it for forever and it was $5 at Mardel’s so I said ok, I’ll buy it and read it. Let you know how it goes.

Today was a lazy but productive day. I was going to go to Stillwater this weekend but decided that rest was more important. It’s been 3 weeks since surgery, but I should probably still take it semi-easy…I mean, I know I’m super-woman and all…uh, yeah. I definitely slept in and rolled out of bed around 10:30 am because I realized that I needed to get my oil changed in my car before they closed at noon or else my car may blow-up or something horrific and traumatizing may happen for me and the car. Later, I showered (victory!) and made my way to Cappuccino Corner for a little ready-read time. It is one of two coffee shops here and the only locally owned. (Buy locally!!) [Stepping onto soap box. Both coffee shops close at 9 pm every night (no Sundays). I think that’s redonk because Claremore has a fast-growing 4-year University. STAY OPEN LATER!! Stepping off soap box.] Abby in all her shortness (love you and your shortyness!) stopped by and we had a chatty-chat about life, love and the pursuit of summer-time functions. Bring it on summer.

It rained today and I loved it. With my books and yummy White Chocolate Mocha, I watched the rain fall from the safety of the coffee shop. It was sporadic but calm which was very soothing and mesmerizing to me. As I drove home and the rain delicately fell on my windshield, I had this overwhelming awareness of the Lord and His presence in my life. He is wooing me and I’m falling more madly in love with Him and that excites me. There have been several things and people in my life the last 5 months that helped build to this moment in time, but I’ll save that for a rainy day…another one at least ;)

If you’re still reading, you’re a trooper and deserve a gold star or a cookie, your choice. XOXO hugs and kisses! Tee-hee! Just kidding.

I love looking at my relationship with the Lord as the Great Romance. It’s not like my collection of chick-flicks or 80’s movies, like Sixteen Candles, that end with the anticipated yet predictable kiss over the birthday cake while sitting on the kitchen table (I haven’t watched it a thousand times…uh yeah…) – it is never-ending. The Lord longs to show us His love and give us another glimpse of His goodness and grace. He whispers words of sweet-somethings through His creation: the gentle rainfall, the long-awaited green of the trees and grass after a bitter winter, through conversation with a friend, a song written as a love-song to our Creator, the list goes on but we have to listen and be still and know that He is God (Ps 46:10). I can’t accurately describe how I felt as I drove but this song by Mainstay was playing along and it comes pretty close to how I felt:
       All of me longs for You,
      Light of the world
      Coming soon, breaking through all this pain
      Falling down, calling out,
      Your love surrounding me
      For You I wait, In you I wait
      I will look to the day when you're coming again
      To heal the hearts of men - when you come down
      Let us look to the sky with redemption in our eyes
      Watch the world come alive - when you come down
      Broken hearts will finally see
      Light of the world
      Every tear wiped away from our eyes.
      Every sin that held us down
      They all will disappear.
      And so I wait. For You I wait.
      All of me longs for You,
      Light of the world
