Going All In!

Please don't miss your chance to listen to this! Not only life changing, but so encouraging! It's exactly what I needed after writing my previous blog...

Having A Story To Be Told.

Wouldn't that be nice? To have a story. So when someone finally asks you {I don't know, maybe God?}, "Hey, so what's your story?" You can tell it. I mean, just picture running into Jonah. You ask his story. Then you feel as big as your 15 month old's span of vocabulary cause well...did you get eaten by whale? I highly doubt it...although sometimes I feel like it would be nice to get eaten by a whale, wouldn't it? Just eat me already...

In spite of my lows, I still have to look at the highs and all the blessings that surround me. I actually DO have a story being written. I can't say that I can tell it yet, but perhaps soon? The Lord is preparing our family for some big things. I'm not sure what but it includes changing the world. But do you know this? Well, you see...I don't really know...George maybe? Something about a revelation from the Holy Spirit and my husbands {sometimes creepy} confidence that tells me this. George has an amazing life story already at the young ripe age of...wait, maybe I shouldn't tell you. And already, together, we have journeyed through this road called life reaping many blessings from the Lord. All for which we are very grateful for and at the same time, can't help but think He's setting us up for something. Something great. Something amazing. I don't know much about revelations from the Holy Spirit {my listening skills aren't up to par with the Lord these days...I tend to be the talker...} but when George looks me dead in the eye and says a long time ago he was told we were meant for big things. I listen. I got a little squirmy and freaked out, but hey...when you don't know your future? Who isn't scared? I mean, I tend to think drastically too. Do I need to pack my bags for Cambodia? Is there going to be a car accident? People have crazy stories and if I'm gonna be one of those people my mind just goes...gone.

That's the hard part though...trying not to question it. Everyone has a story. And at the same time no one really knows what it is {FYI: it may or may not include a whale}. It's so easy to forget your blessings, focus on the lows of your life and turn into a worry wart about what's to come. That's not what God has planned for our lives. He wants so much more for us. I just know it! For the Mekhail's? Having kids isn't the end of our rope, either is reaching the top of the corporate ladder or getting a home. As far as we know, there's so much more life to live. And WE choose to live in the present, to let God continue to write our story and to do what we can to bring this world to Christ.

These Boots Are Made For Walking.

A couple of you have posed questions on and off my blog about which UGG boots did I merrily purchase not too long ago. My choice for the season was: the Classic Tall Stripe Cable Knit Boot in Navy! It's like wearing Nantucket, Cape Cod and The Hampton's all on your feet! So nautical of me, right?
I have to say, I do have a slight obsession with UGG on my list is the Classis Argyle. I am THE coldest person alive. They're just all around comfy, cozy and so easy to wear. I would definitely choose a pair of these boots over any stiletto or pair of flats anyday of the week. Done.

I'm {Fall}ing In Love...

Twenty-two more days to go and it's officially Fall. However, there are already so many sure signs that it's practically already here and that makes my heart smile.
*Pumpkin Spice Lattes*
Who doesn't like pumpkin pie in a cup? Decaf for me please!
*Darker Nights*
Slowly but surely the sun is setting sooner. I DESPISE 9:00pm sunsets...5:00pm is so much cozier!
*Cooler Weather*
Comfy T-shirts, Cashmere Sweaters, Barefoot Dreams Blankets...Yes. Thank You.
I don't like football, but George does and I like George. You get the pattern right?
*T.V. Show Premiere's*
Gossip Girl...House...Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert?
*New UGG Boots*
Yup, they've made their arrival in the mail a couple weeks ago and I CAN'T WAIT to prance around in them! Well, I may have already done that, but only in the house!
And I have to say, I'm a little biased towards Fall 2009 for two reasons: We get to find out if Kingston's going to have a baby brother or baby sister and we get to move into our new house! It will be such an eventful season and I. can't. wait.
