Great legs

I don't get it.

What is it about legs that make them good or bad? When I hear comments like, "wow, she has great legs," I can never tell what it is about said legs that make them stand out above all the rest. Am I alone in thinking for the most part, legs all look the same? Personally, I'm not fond of my legs, but only because I think knees are disgusting. It's this bumpy, lumpy nob that can wiggle around and it always look so rough and wrinkly. Seriously, knees are weird. Brace yourselves, here is the evidence:
Gross.
Ew.
Sick.
Nasty.

Now that that's out of the way (and yes, it was tramatic for me), seriously, what makes a leg pleastant to look at? Is it the length of a leg? The curve of the calf muscle? The lack of cankles? The thighs and calves are proportional? The lack of hair and an ample tan? WHAT?

If I had to vote for best legs, I'd have to give it to these guys.

Happiness and Joy

I read this in a short story from boundless.org, a cool Christian webzine for the college crowd. It sums up beautifully what God is teaching me these days. It's a hard lesson to learn, and I know I'll be learning it for the rest of my life.

"Happiness and joy are two different things. Happiness is when the sun shines and nobody's done you wrong. It just means that life's going your way today, and tomorrow you could be dead!...Joy is when everything is a mess and I cry from a broken heart. But through my tears I say, 'God is good and Jesus saved me and heaven is waiting.' It's a lot harder than happy. But it's also a lot more worth having."

Paul wrote from prison in Philippians 3:8-11

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

That is my prayer today. That I may gain Christ and be found in him.

One year

That's right folks...tomorrow, April 2, marks our one year anniversary! Woohoo! It's been a fantastic time of love and learning and I'm so grateful God has given us this time together. Here's some pictures of good times we've had.
