Refrigerator, Nails, and a Beautiful Verse!

C, at Little Bit Funky. showed me hers, now I'm showing mine! Here it is - my refrigerator! As I look at the picture I wonder if we like pictures of ourselves a little too much?
Hmm...well, anyway, sorry about the glare - I am not the greatest photographer.
Look closely, and you will see...
lots of Miss Allikaye...behind the glare, there's Matt and me surfin' in Hawaii (ah yeah)!...there's a picture of my BFF Rhonda from our graduation at CCU...me holding a precious girl in Ecuador...our family Christmas card...both sides of our families the night before Matt asked me to marry him (our vball team just beat Colorado School of Mines - yes ma'am)...that's about it! Fun game, C!

As I watch TV, probably too much, I see the hip/cool girls wearing dark nail polish. Even the celebrities in the mags are stylin' with the dark! So...I went out and bought some.
It is called "Pat on the Black" - and I am pretty sure I look a little "goth." But then, I kinda like it! I know I am in Colorado, not anywhere near L.A. - and I am older than the girls I see on TV wearing it - but I am going to stick with it - just in case the paparazzi photograph me - I will fit into the celebrity crowd! One more thing, yesterday at church the pastor read Ephesians 1:17-19. I think these verses are so powerful to pray over your loved ones. I remember praying this for Matt when we were in college, and then when we were engaged. And I hadn't really thought about that until yesterday. I am so thankful that the Lord put that verse on my heart again - to pray it for Allikaye! I am thinking that I could write it pretty and frame it in her room, so I can pray it for her daily (I'm open for suggestions from you crazy creative peeps out there).

Here it is: and I pray it for you today too...

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe." Ephesians 1:17-19

woo hoo! You go girl! I tried the black nail polish when it first started getting popular wiht the "cool" people, but I had to have the right outfit on with it...I haven't done it in a while, maybe I'll hit the black polish this week..thanks for the idea.
Also, I love the scripture you posted. Very uplifting! I'm going to bookmark it in my bible so I can remeber to pass that on... Great idea to put it on your baby girls wall in her room: )

I'm laughing about the black nails. I know that is the style - but somehow I just don't think I can pull it off? Maybe when I chop my hair off - I'll try dark nails too. ha!

I love the verse! I found your blog through a friend. My favorite...your family seeing Jesus (the Rock Star!) on Easter morning. So funny (and true)!
