Fully Alive

"The glory of God is man fully alive."
-Saint Irenaeus

Reading the book "Waking the Dead" by John Eldredge and thinking about what it means to be "fully alive." Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10 

When I read this verse a prayer rises from my heart: Lord I need the spirit of revelation to see your calling in my everyday life. Take away the fog that clouds my heart and open my eyes to see yours. Make my heart more like yours so I can live a life that is fully alive. 

Some pictures from my trip to Haiti, 2007 that, to me, somehow seem to capture the words "fully alive."

Beating the Heat

 This summer we've been beating the heat with friends, family and good times. A has stayed in the A.C. studying hard for board exams which are finally over! Pray for A as he is about to start 3 1/2 months of out of town rotations. As for me, I am so thankful for another summer in Kansas City.

We The Free

I recently decided to add something free, fun and spontaneous to my life. My choice. Free People. Yep, Kansas City just opened a Free People on the Plaza and guess what, they hired me to pick up a few shifts a week! I've successfully completed two shifts and OMGoodness it is so much fun! A has amazingly entered his 4th and last year of med school and is going to be gone on rotations quite alot this year so picking up a fun 2nd job is one way that I will stay busy and try not to be too sad while he is gone.

Call Me Maybe

Another eventful weekend in KC! Here are the highlights...

Anna turned 26 and we celebrated with pink flowers, cupcakes and dancing!

Britters came to KC by train!! I miss her already. 

And what happens when Andrew is at the library studying hard for board exams and Britters comes to visit? This happens...

Hey Britters, Call me Maybe?
