hello monday

Hi guys! Hope you all had a marvelous weekend! I'm sorry to leave y'all hanging with my crazy secret post from Saturday, but I am happy to report that tonight I will be writing all about it. :o) There are two things that I discovered over the weekend that I wanted to share. The first is tragic, the second is inspiring.

  • Saturday afternoon I was wasting a little time before my secret arrived and decided to visit to see if there were any new stories. What I saw completely shocked me. The title of the main story said "A Nation Mourning" and there was a picture of this cute man and his wife. The man was the President of Poland, and the story explained how the plane that he was on crashed in Russia. There were no survivors. Not only did the President and First Lady of Poland die, but 94 others as well. This included the president of Poland's national bank, the Deputy Foreign Minister, the head of the National Security office, and many more political, military, and church leaders. I do not understand why things like this happen, but all I can do is trust our Lord. At this time we need to come together and pray for Poland and those lost. May they rest in peace.

  • On Sunday Keith and I decided to watch the end of The Masters golf tournament. While I don't really like golf, I did enjoy watching this. It wasn't the playing that inspired me, but the story behind the winner, Phil Mickelson. Phil's wife Amy has been fighting breast cancer since last year. While she was able to make it to Augusta, she had been bedridden all week. Yesterday she finally had enough strength to make it to the course and watch her husband win it all. Since being diagnosed, Amy hasn't been on the course at all. The embrace Phil and Amy shared after his win made my heart flip. In a time where golf has been tainted by a man named Tiger, it was wonderful to see these two.

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday! I'll be back later with more on my little secret. :o)

Wow, that is so sad about Poland! I didn't hear about this, can you imagine what chaos there would be if that happened here?

I don't really watch golf either, but I watched as you did and got a little teary eyed watching Phil and his wife embrace after he won!

Can't wait to hear the news!

I can't wait to hear your 'secret'.

And yes, Poland does need our prayers. I heard about that in Church yesterday, and it's absolutely horrible. :(
