I'm trying to jump but they won't let me!!

We were supposed to go skydiving at the Boone airport for Emily's birthday on Saturday but the weather did not allow for it. It was extremely cold & the winds were about 20 mph, gusting at 30 mph. They said for us it should stay below 20 mph.

Postponed to last night.

Again, the weather wouldn't allow for it. Too windy.


So we'll try again this coming Saturday.

My sister said it might rain.

Eventually they'll have to let me jump out of a plane.

I've already paid for it & signed my life away (the waivers/authorization/letter that I [actually my family] won't sue if I die, etc.).

And each time I've been to the airport we got to watch video of other jumpers & it made me even more excited & less nervous to make the jump.


This one's for Jess

Hope you're not mad I'm posting this, but I spent my lunch today cleaning out my email inbox & came across the email from December 2007, in which you sent me the following message:

Body of email:

I thought you would like to see what happens when you ask to borrow lotion from a classmate!!!!

A quote from Brennan Manning... "The seldom-stated truth is that many of us have a longing for God and an aversion to God. Some of us seek Him and flee Him at the same time."

Oddly, this sums up my heart, my longing, my lonliness, my choices, my fears, my pain, my sin, my joy, my growth, and many other things probably for the season of my life from about 2005-2008 for me....and it may still linger.
