Thoughts...

Just a few thoughts today.....

In recent events...of course everyone knows by now about Steve Irwin's tragic death....now I was never much of a fan of his, but I know he did a great job for wildlife and he loved animals. The thought that came to me though was this...He lived life his way on his terms and I'm sure he knew the dangers of the life he chose...thing is what would have been a worse death...living life in fear of chasing your dreams...destiny...whatever you want to call it...or pursuing your life's passion and dying from doing just that?? I'm sure Steve wouldn't have lived his life any other way. Yet many of us coward away from the things that we know we should do because we are afraid of *what others will think *fear of getting hurt * fear of rejection * fear of failing. Am I right?? I know I fall in this trap just as much as many of you do. Fear is such a terrible thing...I can't imagine the many things I could have done in my life if fear didn't take over....saddens me sometimes if I think about it. Steve took the "gator by the tail" (please excuse the pun) and ran with it and made it his and pursued his dream...how many of us can say that...I know if it were up to me I would much rather die doing what I loved than living in fear and just waiting to die. God bless him! It's kind of like Jesus...He went back into the Garden three times...not once...not twice... but three times hoping that God would allow the cup to pass by him. Jesus could have ran away...backed down...let fear overtake Him...but no he faced it...lived His destiny...came to this earth to live the life God meant for Him to live. I know...I'm going pretty deep tonight...sorry 'bout that, but it just has been on my mind. Things like this tragedy with Steve Irwin just remind me how life is too short and we need to pursue what God brought us here for...whatever that may be...whether it be wrestling crocs and raising wildlife awareness or just raising Godly children...we all have a purpose....so What is your purpose???

For those of you who watch Project Runway....I was so glad to see Vincent go this week... I was really getting tired of him...thing is now it's getting down to the good ones...who do you think will make it?? My top three choices are Michael, Uli and Laura. We shall see.

Went to the Lake today just hubby, Colton and I...it was nice to just get out and walk...I will post pics later.

Hope you are having a good week.

Loved your thoughts on living with purpose...I have spent a long time trying to figure out who I am and who I am meant to be and you know...a few years back it came to me...I guess the Lord defined it for me, so clearly that I have never again searched for meaning in my life...I am called, yes called to be my husband's wife. that's pretty much it for me. In my eyes he is a very important man in the kingdom of God and God made me just for him, to stand by him to love and support him when no one else does or can. That may sound pretty small but its the truth for me. thanks for asking.

Yes we each have a destiny and all of it is to be with the FATHER but sadly, some are not fulfilled! Oh yea I have been through there too! I am pretty sure! We used to pass it or through it when we went down home to Ashland, Ky.! Small world, huh? Yea well the weather here is pretty cool. It is only 50 now and supposed to get down to 40 and in the 30's in other parts of Iowa. So
guess winter is on it's way! Have a great night! Katie
