Elementary my dear

Today is Monday. There are 2 more days of school. My brain is mush. I have a serious "I don't care" attitude. I can't put one single thought together. I'm tired of being the robot I've been for the past 9 months.

It's time.

Time for Summer!!!

So...since my brain is mush and I can't think clearly and all I hear in my head is blah blah blah, then lets keep it simple today.

Let's hear it for the list!!!! Yeah baby.

1. Feels like Fall outside today. Put a sweatshirt on. LOVE IT!!! It'll be 120 before too long.

2. I am ready to move to the next level...I think God is telling me to seriously do something outside of the church. BE THE CHURCH OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH!

3. I'm getting a tattoo this Summer. I am. Don't cringe. It's a beautiful long story. It's a Godly tattoo and it's hidden and it's the rebel in me. God is smiling and I know He'll love it. *wink*

4. I'm tired of "Shredding." But, I'll keep on. Dern.

5. Going to Birmingham later in the week. Going to meet Robyn and Mary! Beyond happy. These two were invisible friends to me once upon a time. But now we are real life friends who met on the Internet! :)

6. What are you doing for the kingdom of God?? Jesus tells us to "go." Are you going???

7. Anyone wanna loan me a ton of money for a pool?? Didn't think so.

8. you want to watch something beyond amazing and beautiful...go here and see what my favorite Nashville pastor is up to. LOVE THIS!!! Who are you close to giving up on?

That's all. I'm going to continue thinking short term, easy, elementary thoughts.

Love y'all. Have a beautiful day!

Seriously. I want to be there when you get that tattoo. :) I have to see how bad it hurts!!!

We are doing the 2 days until school is out dance around here too. Summer can not come fast enough! BUT, since my oldest baby starts middle school in the fall, I'm not really wanting summer to end!!

Crazy about you and thrilled that you get to see the 'Ham girls!!! You better give them some hugs and say hey for me. :)

The tattoo doesn't hurt too bad. I mean, it hurts, but you've had three kids, and nothing quite hurts like that!

And listen, I can't loan you the money for a pool, but you are welcome to use my pool ANYTIME you'd like! Seriously, it's an open invitation. (Grab some of those southern girls and get up here!)

Love you mucho!

Woo Hoo for summer time! Although, that means that my schedule gets even crazier. But, our students don't get out of school until the first week of June this year! Talk about crazy. Love you, Fran! Hope you have a fabulous time in Birmingham. And, keep on keepin' on with Shredding! You can do it!

My crew can't WAIT for summer! Friday is their last day also... must be a TN thing! LOL I just wanted to let you know I'm adding you to my blog roll and grabbing your button! :)

Hi Fran,
i like the "Be the church outside the church." That's great!

May you have a blessed week in Birmingham. Hasn't blogging been great--meeting and making many wonderful new friends! I just love it!

Have fun!

Mary said...

Love the "Be the Church outside the Church" concept! This is where my heart is! CANNOT WAIT to see you on Friday! Yep, that's FRIDAY as in two days away, Friday.

Latte With Me said...

I wish I was going to be in town this weekend to meet you! (Well you & Mary - because I've never met her and I've only really had a brief conversation with Robyn so it would be like meeting all 3 of you, but would I chicken out and not show up? Probably not with it just being the three of you...yet I digress...)

Have a great time here in the HAM! I'll be with the kids in Savannah visiting James.

"He’s a God searching for the one lost sheep. He’s a God who’s waiting with open arms for the prodigal who’s ready to run home."

Dearest Fran, you could not know how well timed your link was. Somewhere in the recesses of my heart I believe this.

By the way, I have $5 toward the pool if I can swim in it. ha! ;)

I'm so ready for school to be out here! So cool about the tatoo ;-)
