So today I was an awesome mentor and took my girl to a movie. That is right on a week night! Never would have happened in my house growing up. But those are different stories and times.
Later we were hanging out at the house and started discussing Christmas. She set out to make a list...which mind you is 3 pages and 23 items long.
There is an elaborate star coding system involved in which each star equals "really". For example ***1. I-pad = I really really really want an I-pad or ** 20. Angry bird slippers = I really really want angry bird slippers. You get the picture?
So in my attempt to be more mentor as YH would encourage I say you realize you can not get every thing on your list. She says I know I am hoping for at least 3 or 5. Fair enough I believe a girl can dream.
I continue and ask her..you know the real reason we give gifts on Christmas? She say to celebrate the baby Jesus being born. Star pupil....until she continues....and Valentine's was made to celebrate the day God told Mary she was pregnant. I asked how did you come by this information. She replies some really religious kids in my class told us all that. It is true.
FACT: I need to get this girl to Sunday School and start telling more Biblical stories.
So a lot of things in life are going down to make my life super stressful and I am way behind on blogging but tonight I just needed to share that this flash mob that made me cry and laugh....I just LOVE these things. Randoms acts, music, and people bring joy and entertainment to the lives of many.
Another entertaining one:
"That they may be one, even as we are one." John 17:22
Personality is that peculiar, incalculable thing that is meant when we speak of ourselves as distinct from everyone else. Our personality is always too big for us to grasp. An island in the sea may be but the top of a great mountain. Personality is like an island, we know nothing about the great depths underneath, consequently we cannot estimate ourselves. We begin by thinking that we can, but we come to realize that there is only one Being Who understands us, and that is our Creator.
Personality is the characteristic of the spiritual man as individuality is the characteristic of the natural man. Our Lord can never be defined in terms of individuality and independence, but only in terms of personality, "I and My Father are one." Personality merges, and you only reach your real identity when you are merged with another person. When love, or the Spirit of God strikes a man, he is transformed, he no longer insists upon his separate individuality. Our Lord never spoke in terms of individuality, of a man’s "elbows" or his isolated position, but in terms of personality - "that they may be one, even as We are one." If you give up your right to yourself to God, the real true nature of your personality answers to God straight away. Jesus Christ emancipates the personality, and the individuality is transfigured; the transfiguring element is love, personal devotion to Jesus. Love is the outpouring of one personality in fellowship with another personality.

I didn't know it could happen...an earthquake felt in Kansas.
Sitting in the doc area at St Joes I felt my chair start to shake. I looked down the hall thinking something very large was running down the hallway. We had already just have 3 EMS crews go by so this time I thought what the heck are they bringing now!
The doc next to me was on the phone. He didn't feel it. Luckily I wasn't crazy and others had felt it. Working in the ER I am learning not to be so gullible and I was proud to not believe the first time they told me it was probably an earthquake. HA!
It was confirmed that a 5.6 magnitude quake was felt in Wichita that originated from Sparks, Oklahoma.
