About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

Happy Go Texan Day


Hi friends. I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Go Texan day! In case you didn't know about this wonderful holiday, here is a brief explanation. It originated in Houston, the very location I sit right now. From the window I can see Reliant Stadium and the grouds for Rodeo Houston.

It's been called a spirit. It's even been referred to as a fever. Very few individuals - if any - can explain it. People in Houston just know that there's something in the air, and they know that it arrives early in February and lasts about a month.

They smell pit-smoked barbecue for miles. They see their friends wearing jeans and boots. And while driving to work, they pass hundreds of men and women on horseback, some even in wagons.

Most Houstonians know exactly what's going on - they've been around it for many years. But "foreigners" might not realize they're being soaked in the Go Texan Spirit.

"Grow beards, wear big hats, boots and spurs. Let's put a little touch of the Wild West into this thing." Those were perhaps the first words spoken that informally established the unique Western flavor of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeoâ„¢.




I can't smell the BBQ yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I do get to be a judge for a 4H competition tomorrow which I'm pretty excited about. I'll let you know who the winner is. Until then, enjoy being a Texan and if you aren't, well I'm sorry. ;-)

Well, I better get back to studying brain science. Love you guys.
