Me in 1998 & you know, stuff.

Cousin Kelly, Sister and myself.

Cousin Kaite, Cousin Kelly, Me, Cat, Sister.
My dad's friend just dug these up. I'm glad he passed them along. I was about 13 9 (thanks Dad, I don't know what I would do without your math skills... haha) in these photo's. I was blonde (naturally) and rocking my some lovely shorts, right?

I looked up to these girls so much. Now I look up to these women so much.



I really like these verses right now:

"For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man on the earth, and ask from one end of heaven to the other, whether such a great thing as this has ever happened or was ever heard of. Did any people ever hear the voice of a god speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and still live? Or has any god ever attempted to go and take a nation for himself from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, and by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and by great deeds of terror, all of which the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD is God; there is no other besides HimOut of heaven He let you hear His voice, that He might discipline you. And on earth He let you see his great fire, and you heard his words out of the midst of the fireAnd because He loved your fathers and chose their offspring after them and brought you out of Egypt with his own presence, by His great power, driving out before you nations greater and mightier than yourselves, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is this dayknow therefore today, and lay it to your heart, that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. Therefore you shall keep His statutes and His commandments, which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land that the LORD your God is giving you for all time."


Deuteronomy 4:32-40

P.S.

I am really loving "Change is Hard" by Zooey Deschanel.

Lyrics:



I’m all outta luck but what else could I be?
I know he’s yours and he'll never belong to me again.
I did him wrong.
So don’t brag,
Keep it to yourself.
I did him wrong.
I was never no, never no, never enough,
But I can try, I can try to toughen up.
I listened when they told me
If he burns you, let him go.
Change is hard, I should know.
I should know.
I should know.

So I'll keep my head down
If you keep it quiet from now on.
In the halls I’d rather hear silence than the bell of new love.
So don’t brag,
Keep it to yourself.
I did him wrong.
I was never no, never no, never enough,
But I can try, I can try to toughen up.
I listened when they told me
If he burns you, let him go.
Change is hard, I should know.
I should know.
I should know.
I should know.

And thanks for just now getting me hooked on Zooey Deschanel! She reminds me a tiny bit of a young Linda Ronstadt. Just a tiny bit.
