Great Day!

Today we were honored to have our governor, Bobby Jindal, give his testimony at First Baptist Church. He did an awesome job. It's amazing how much more relaxed he is when he's not in front of the media. He spoke so strongly of his relationship with Jesus Christ.
I think we are very blessed to have him as our governor. I've always been a fan of his, but now even more so.

I can't believe it has been 2 years since you came into this world. It took a while for you to get to know us, but now we can see in your eyes how much you love us.
I know there's been times when Cayden has wished that he had all of the attention, but he is crazy about you. I know you both are going to grow up to be very close and watch out for each other.
Mimi and PawPaw love you, and you are a very precious little princess.

A very blessed Easter....

I was going to post pictures from Easter week, but I think Emily did a better job on her blog, so I'll just post a link to that. Except let me add, we had a great time here on Friday with everyone who came by. Emily, Troy, Cayden, Shelby, Cody, Tonya, Clayton, Bubba, and us. Then Nancy, Eva, Dustin, Robin, and Brittany came by. Cayden kept everyone entertained with his stories. He has so much expression, and he never forgets a detail.
Clay bought boiled crawfish and shrimp for the kids. I made a shrimp salad, and Clay made 2 pies (wonderful pies). The weather was beautiful, and the kids had a great time playing in the back yard.

I want to share a devotion from the book Joy of the Journey. This really made an impression on me for the past week. This time last year was when I was facing my surgery, and at that time I was trying to savor every little detail of everything I did with the grandkids, my family, and my friends.

To experience happiness we must train ourselves to live in this moment, to savor it for what it is, not running ahead in anticipation of some future date nor lagging behind in the paralysis of the past. With wholeness and sensitivity we must live in the here and now. "But what if I don't like the here and now?" you ask. "What if my present moment is one of disappointment or impairment or heartache? How then do I savor that moment?" Good questions. And the answers reside in the first and most profound principle for the art of savoring life. Pleasure lies in the heart, not in the happenstance. Our circumstances may be dreadful and riddled with reasons for discouragement or sorrow, but that doesn't mean those moments are utterly devoid of happiness...Those special savored moments of fun, reflection, happiness, and pleasure give us a tiny taste of what eternity with Christ will one day be like.
