Sweet Victory!

Yes, I am from Kentucky... that doesn't mean I always cheer for the Wildcats. One of those times will be when we play the South Carolina Gamecocks. Our dear, precious friends the Horns were in Lexington this weekend for a little SEC action. As I have mentioned before, Darrin left Western Kentucky University last year to become the head coach of the Gamecocks, and since then, we wear a lot of garnet and watch a lot of SC basketball at our house. They have blessed us beyond measure with their friendship and we were so excited to share in their awesome victory yesterday.
To God be the glory for all he is doing in their lives. I have never met a family who has so diligently followed Christ where he leads, and with no hesitation I might add. Here are a few pictures to document the day. WOW...what a win!

I just found your blog! I see that you are a southern girl too! I love the south. I was born and raised here in Mississippi. I've lived up north was nice but the south has my heart. I really like your blog. Come visit me sometimes. We can pretend that we are sitting on the porch drinking iced tea.
