Things have been good here in there wonderful state of Nebraska! I love it!
I often think about the ocean and the amazingness of it. The waves, the sun, the sand, the beauty. Then my thoughts will wander to the mountains--the splendor, the invigorating hikes, the completely-take-your-breath-away view from the top. (I really can't decide which I like better) And then I think about where I live--the flat, the gorgeous sunrises, the big open sky, the corn fields, the family and friends who live all around me. It seems boring so "the same" compared to other places...but it's home and though I don't know if it always will be, I do know that it will hold a special place in my thoughts!
Where do you live?!? Yes, this requires a little action on your part--it's not hard, just click comment and tell me about the amazing place you call home.
Yep, we're in a gym! And believe it or not this begins our 11th year of watching basketball. I guess that's what comes when you have 7 very athletic brothers. All of them that live at home--5 of them--are in basketball this fall. And I'm excited to cheer for them.
There has been many a game when I've cheered myself hoarse. Buzzer-beaters are. the. best. If you have never experienced one you truly don't know what it means to watch basketball. Granted they are few and far between, but when they come...ahh!! Good times!
I do enjoy sports. And watching them is fun, especially when I know someone who's competing! Now watching random guys on a TV screen doesn't really do much for me--except HUSKER football--oh, yeah!
Anyways, basketball is the one sport that I actually understand fully--I think. I will hopefully be doing a couple posts on basketball, but don't hold your breath:) But I am anticipating some good games this year, and of course every game is better when you've have the bleacher-buddy that I've got!! She. is. the bomb. She knows basketball better then...well, any other girl I know, and she makes a great personal wikipedia in that regard!!
"I have set the LORD always before me.
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices...
You have made known to me the path of life;
You will fill me with joy in Your presence,
with eternal pleasures at Your right hand."
