Pride

Hungry for some of the Humble Pie that I had a dose of this morning? Well, I am full and want to live off watermelon for two weeks just to cleanse myself of this muck. Ready for it?
I had to just delete my recent post because it felt like all I was doing was saying: "Look at me! Look what I can do!" A tone I'm not so inclined to. I've had a wonderful time here in CO with family, but I sure did feel that my tone was almost that I'd be a better person if I lived back in Colorado again. I seriously felt pride when I lived here. If I'd snowboard and talk to people on the lifts, I felt more awesome if I could say that I was from CO, not OK. How shallow and sad is that? Wow! I am so glad that I'm catching this at a this point (when we are contemplating moving back) so that I can nip this in the bud!
So, Spring Break has been fun! I'll post the one picture I had that shows the priceless stair-step cousins together. (my three girls in the middle) This could be the only year for that as soon they'll even out! Blessings to you all <><

What a great picture of the kiddos! I love that stair-step effect. *grin*
And now that you have allowed God to assess your heart - enjoy the watermelon!

oh rach, you sweet thing! :) just for the record, your tone in the last one didn't sound like that to me. You mentioned the fact that one reason CO is so awesome (coming from OK) is that you get to play all the time, which implies that "real life" would still be there if you LIVED there. so that was a insightful! i enjoyed seeing what you're getting to enjoy!

Thank you for being so sensitive to His Spirit within that brings our heart into check when we have exalted ourselves in any way, especially when it is missed by others. Happy Birthday!!!
