Where do I begin!? Life has been soooo busy lately! Doesn't it always seem that way around the holidays? Should be the opposite! I want to sit in a clean, boxless house and sip cocoa with the Jarebare!
That said, yes we are in the new house! SO happy to have graduated from the tiny 2 bedroom townhome. What's funny though is that even though we have 3 bedrooms upstairs, all the boys are still cramming themselves into one room. :) Brothers are awesome.
I am really looking forward to this weekend! Its the performance of Handel's Messiah that I am participating in. I wish I could possibly communicate what I feel after singing this music for 3 years running... it is without a doubt inspired music. When the choir sings those words from Isaiah, I feel like the Heavens open for a minute and we sing with angels. I can barely get through the song "Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs" from Isaiah 53:4. PLEASE listen to that song! It is so extraordinary how Handel uses those words and with melody and harmony he takes us from words to wisdom...
Take a listen here:
And note the words!! Especially when they sing "...for ooooooourrr iiiiiiniquities!" Ugh! Kills me every time!
Surely He hath borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows
He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.
Was wounded for our transgressions.
For our iniquities.
The chastisement of our peace
Was upon Him!
Please come out and experience this amazing music this Sunday at 7...

Cobra Yawn: The involuntary spraying of saliva while yawning. Much like the venom spray from a cobra. In most cases the yawner doesn't realized it has happened only finding the aftermath once the yawn is over.
Involuntary "You too": When out of habit you reply to a comment with "You too". This happens to the best of us. Two common situations of the Involuntary "You Too"
Girl: Well happy birthday man. Have fun at Sea World tomorrow.
Guy: Thanks, you too.
Parent: Drive safe and have fun.
Son: Ok you too.

I have thought a lot lately about her life and about the lives of several others of my ancestors. There seems to be a common thread...they are all tough cookies. Jared and I paid her a visit a few years back. We arrived at her house at dusk and could see someone outside digging trenches around the sprinklers. I could not believe it when I realized it was Grandma Osborn! We were in shock to see her working so hard at her age! After the shock, admiration. After that, a deep desire to emulate. I so badly want to be strong and enduring like her, hard working and capable. I want to be a tough cookie too.
