Random...an adjective defined as having no specific pattern, purpose, or objective...
or in layman's terms...
I personally find this amusing since I don't happen to hold with chance...even with something as seemingly mundane as choosing a number for a giveaway. I couldn't have sat down, gone through all the entries, and picked a better number to win the Spoonin' pendant than #1.
# 1...Rebecca at A Re-Purposed life just "happened" to be the first commenter...just "happened" to be only one of two still awake at the stroke of midnight to ring in the New Year with me...and just "happens" to be anything but random.
R.E.'s life is full of purpose...God's purpose for her...hence her blog name. She never sits still for very long, always has an on-going project or her Bible at hand, runs up and down the highway like she was born with wheels on her tooshie, and epitomizes the words SQUIRREL ALERT. God is constantly diverting her attention with random beauty causing her to stop...pull over to the side of the road...and marvel in His goodness. She may begin a major over haul of a room, only to have Him whisper "Made you look!" sending her out to lecture, teach, and reach out to others. Her daily planner is full of changes, scribbled out dates, and cancelled plans, but it's also bulging with friendships, love, and proof-pudding of a most beautiful Re-Purposed Life.
Big...huge...thanks to all of you for your oh-so-funny comments and for taking the time to humor an old lady. BTW...one of the best was Susie's. If you get a chance...read it. Law...it's a squirrel tale to end all squirrel
tails tales! (Warning: empty all contents of your mouth before reading!) 'Course I was sad to have to eliminate her, but good golly...she can make her own!
Sorry I had to eliminate a few others from the drawing as well, but there are rules about family members...Jenn. (Play nice and maybe your gorgeous mother will get you one for your birthday!)
A special thank you to those of y'all who became new followers. I appreciate the pleasure of your company and hope you come by again. I'll be sure and leave the light on for you...even if you've only time for a drive-by. Believe me when I say...I'll take it!
I want to emphasize...y'all are all numero uno in my book, but sadly...that ain't how the game is played. I will say here and now...for all the world (or at least a few hundred) to read...y'all could never be the dog poo on the soles of my Yellow Boxes. You're way too busy being the Dr. Scholl's to this ol' gal's heart and...SOUL!
Random... could be, but you'll have a hard time convincing me...
I just can't make this stuff up!
