'hey! any chance you'd be free tonight?'

it's interesting how saying 'yes' can lead to unexpected adventures. and that's how i found myself at life framer's opening night view last week. the whole night itself was something i wasn't entirely used to, but intriguing and fun at the same time!

i wish i could say that i cook healthy and delicious dinners every night. but it's just not true. not even close. lately, it's all been about take out or fast food. sometimes i'll even swing by the usual place to pick up sushi for everyone! yayy, at least it makes me happy looking at all the yummy fish!

i've always admired the way my dad plays board games. when i was younger, it was always so much fun to play monopoly during family game night because my dad would give 100%-- no matter if he was winning or losing. even if he was on the point of bankruptcy, he'd play as if he expected to win on the next turn. and he always played until the very end, laughing and smiling the whole way through. it was always so exciting! that's how i want to play! ♥

"i’ll let go
of things i’ve gone and done
of things i’ve lost and won
of battles with my guilt and filthy shame

i’ll let go
of times i’ve lingered on
of times still yet to come
of any worthless moment void of You

i’ll let go
of places and these things
for death has lost its sting
and victory is given with Your Word

i’ll let go
of hatred and my pain
of all the things i’ve stained
i’ll give them up to wash them in Your blood

i’ll let go
of ordinary days
of my own man-made ways
i’ll walk the path You light for me in faith

i’ll let go
of family and of friends
of any mean or end
that keeps me from the presence of my God

i’ll let go
of everything i’ve known
of everything i own
of everything that keeps me from Your heart

i’ll let go
of every single thought
of every single word
of every single moment in this life"

we stopped by komodo for a casual celebration and it impressed! the food was delicious and the presentation spot on-- ohh the colors! everything i tried was good, especially the garlic tater tots. and you can't go wrong with any of the homemade nectars. ♥
