If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. ~Matthew 17:20

Razorback Fun

We were so blessed to be able to go to the Razorback game Saturday in Fayetteville and to be able sit inside the glassed in area (I have no idea what this section was called!).  For a girl who doesn't care for sporting events, I sure did have a good time and the boys, well, I don't even have to tell you how much fun they had!  So much food to eat, so many people to watch and so little time.  Anne & Steve were there with Seth and three of his friends so Spencer and Cole sat with them which meant I had no one to tell me what was going on in the game!  Brad knew the couple that was sitting beside us so he was visiting with them while I was texting Spencer asking him questions.  Fun, fun, fun.
We drove home after the game and got in around 1:45 a.m.  Oh, I'm too old to be doing that because I had to get up early and work on Hoedown stuff yesterday.  But the boys had a great time so it was worth it.

As many of you know, the Ewing's have kind of had a tough time this past 14 months.  But God has really opened my eyes lately to all the THOUSANDS of blessings we have in our life.  I just can't tell you how thankful and fortunate we are and even in the midst of all our trouble, we are SOOOOOO much better off than most people.  I loved my Bible reading this morning by Rev. Lavon Post.  He said, "One thing that I have noticed in life is that God sometimes allows some storms just before sending one of His beautiful blessings.  After the blessing has come, it is even more appreciated because of the storms that preceded it.  So if your life has been a little stormy lately, please don't despair and please don't beat yourself up, wondering why God is made at you.  He's not mad at you, He's just getting ready to send you a spectacularly beautiful blessing."  Thank you God for preparing me for Your many blessings.

Hope ya'll have a great week.
