Words Can't Express

I had a interesting day yesterday.  It began in its usual way--no indication that it would be anything other than ordinary. However, it soon became extra-ordinary.  

I can't go into detail about everything that happened because it would be way too long and you would be totally bored.  Suffice it to say that some very discouraging things happened in between some amazing things.  Words can't express how fun those amazing things were, but I know they were from the Lord as a gift to me.  Actually, even the discouraging things were from the Lord to teach me something, I'm sure. 

But, without going into details, here are bullets of some of the blessings:

*My car didn't cost as much as I had anticipated when I took it to be serviced.
*It was finished sooner in the day than I expected
*I discovered that I DIDN'T have to file Hawaii State Income tax on last year's salary because I hadn't earned enough
*I was able to re-route my return flight to NY for a minimal fee (much, much less than I had anticipated)
*I won a few games of Boggle, and even the ones I lost were only lost by a small margin
*I had lunch with my friend at one of my favorite restaurants

I won't tell you about the discouragements.  Let's just say I learned something and now I'm moving on.

Today I spent the majority of the day at work.  We were photographing a soccer league. It was over 80 degrees and the sun was shining most of the day.  Hence, the umbrella.

One of the girls was busy taking her own photos.  I see a photography career in her future.  These kids crack me up, they are sooooo adorable.  It was a long day, and I was very glad when it was over.

What an adorable photo of the little soccer players! :-)

I really like the image of the wine bottles, too...the angle of view you chose made for an interesting shot.

You've piqued my curiosity, though, with your story by dropping just one shoe! :-) I hope today brings nothing but blessings for you.

Love the girl taking the photos!

I hope the good things at least outweighed the bad...
