Yesterday I enjoyed watching the small group video with my friends. It talked about how life was a lot like a roller coaster. I remember being scared to death of them as a kid and I still get nervous when I get on them. I remember standing in line with my older sisters and my Dad (my mom never got on, she was the smart one). They would manipulate into getting into line in preparation to ride the roller coaster. I remember many times standing in line and getting all the way to the front of the line and leaving. I would leave that line after standing for 45 minutes and go and be with my mom. I would say, "someday I'll ride that!" That 'someday' has come, I now ride the coasters with my eyes closed and squealing like a little girl. (funny thought, so I thought I'd post the picture of what it would look like) When I look at my life and think about some of the things that I said I would do, some of those things are still undone. I'm asking God to help give me the passion to put those dreams front and center in my life and begin to fulfill them now.
