Crazy about Crazy Heart

Jeff Bridges has had a film career that most actors only dream of.

From some of my favorite roles in movies such as the Last Picture Show, Against all Odds, The Iceman Cometh, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Fabulous Baker Boys, Starman, Tucker, White Squall, Fearless and one his all time best: The Big Lebowski, Jeff Bridges has never disappointed.

But I think his role in Crazy Heart is the stuff every actor must dream of getting - because this is the motherlode! He was totally mesmerizing in this role and kept me in a trance from the opening scene till the credits started rolling. I didn’t want the movie to end and to say I loved this film is an understatement.

Yes, I adored him with his braided ponytail as Bill Django in Men who Stare at Goats but I must say… Jeff Bridges has done it again in an even bigger badder way – and it would have been a total injustice had you NOT won Best Actor at the Oscars this year!

I salute you, Jeff (Bad Otis Blake) Bridges– you’re my hero to the very end.

All in God's Timing...

A very dear friend is a photographer that has wanted to do a photo shoot with us for about 2 months but it seemed like everytime we tried to hook up, the weather wasn't cooperating or schedules were getting in the way - one thing or another made us postpone time and time again.

I mentioned last week to both Darrell and Jim that God must have something else in store for us - because this was just wasn't working out according to our schedule.

Tonight after work, the weather was gorgeous and we met in downtown Kansas City. Jim has found some great location shoots using old abandoned warehouses and cobblestone alleyways as the backdrop.

We were moving from one shoot to another and when we pulled up to the last location to get the scene ready, a couple of homeless guys walked up. We pray for opportunities anytime we go out and sure enough, God provided another tonight. We were able to spend about an hour talking to these 2 men and sharing the Gospel with them. It was such an exhilarating and exciting time - and we pray God will use us more and more.

These awesome photos were taken by Jim Spencer Photography. If you live in the Kansas City area or are planning a trip here and are interested, I would highly recommend you book a sitting! You just never know what God is going to do during that block of time ♥

Our 109th Birthday

Tonight we were invited to a very dear family's house to celebrate mine and hubs birthdays ... collectively, we are 109 ♥

We could not love this family anymore if they were our blood relatives.

Thanks for such a wonderful time tonight, Spencer family -
you are in our hearts forever!

And although this is an older picture... it's still one of my favorites!!


We have been celebrating all weekend long, but on Saturday, which was my real birthday, hubs gave me a card that had me bawling like a baby.

I just want to share it with you:

Someday, years from now, when we've been together a long long time,
we'll know each other so well, you'll finish my sentences and I 'll know where you left your glasses.
You'll forgive my bad habits and I'll ignore your little quirks.
And just when our life seems safe and predictable, you'll surprise me.
For there will always be a part of you that remains a wonderful mystery to me.
Someday, years from now,
other people might look at us and see an old married couple, but I wont
Every time I look at you or touch you or kiss you,
I'll still see the amazing person I fell in love with long ago.
Happy Birthday.

Because of Him!

I'm so thankful for the finished work on the Cross
and knowing that Christ died for ME.

I love You Lord
and I lift my voice
To worship You
O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, my King
in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound
in Your ear.
