Need Some Inspiration?

(Warning: it's Kelvin)

Do you ever need to be inspired? I do. We all do. Do you ever find yourself depressed because that thing you were so excited about a month ago is now a fading fling? I do. We all do.

Below is a video of Emma as she was loosing her ability to walk. You may remember it from October 2008. I can't watch it very often, but I don't need to; it is an image forever burned in my memory. I think of her video often. That she can't walk doesn't matter. That she tried so hard does. She inspires me.

Be sure to leave nothing on the field. We get one trip around this big ball, and regret tastes horrible. I'll close with my version of a saying I have shared with some of you in another context...



Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving

safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to come skidding in broadside in a spray of gravel,

totally worn out, thoroughly used up

and ignoring the grit in your teeth as you loudly proclaim,

"WOW, What a Ride!!!"

Ride Hard.

Inspire.

  2. Christy and Kelvin, yall are on my heart always. I love your message at the end of this blog...so true...we should all vow to live life like this..All the while holding on to God's hand and remembering that we never know what His plans are for us here on this earth, but while we are here, to treasure each and every moment no matter how difficult those moments are. May God continue to wrap His arms around your family and surround you and fill you with the things you need to get through each moment.
    I love yall!
