Donuts for breakfast today! I don't normally buy donuts for the fear of me eating them but today is a special day. Yesterday, Nathan came home with so much excitement. He announced that he got an A+ on his science test. Now this wasn't just any science test but one that he had studied and studied for. We were so proud of his accomplishment and asked what he wanted to do to celebrate. The first and only thing out of his mouth was: DONUTS FOR BREAKFAST! Our breakfast celebration was yummy but my thighs won't be able to celebrate any more for awhile. Victory is SWEET!

On a random note, I was reading chapter 38 of "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren and was so inspired and convicted by the following paragraph: Worldly Christians look to God primarily for personal fulfillment. They are saved, but self-centered. They love to attend concerts and enrichment seminars, but you would never find them at a missions conference because they aren't interested. Their prayers focus on their own needs, blessings, and happiness. It's a "me-first" faith: How can God make my life more comfortable? They want to use God for their purposes instead of being used for His purposes. In contrast, world-class Christians know they were saved to serve and made for a mission. They are eager to receive a personal assignment and excited about the privilege of being used by God. World-class Christians are the only fully alive people on the planet. Their joy, confidence, and enthusiasm are contagious because they know they're making a difference. They wake up each morning expecting God to work through them in fresh ways. Which type of Christian do you want to be?

Ouch - enough said

Living fearlessly in Christ
