Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.  My spring break skiing trip could be summed up by that quote alone.  I went to Winterpark, CO.  I was at the top of two mountains on a very beautiful day.  The scenery was breath taking to say the least.  While flying down the mountain on my skis, I could not help but thank God for making this captivating scene possible.  This was my second skiing trip to Colorado and I am convinced that you have not really lived until you have seen the mountains. 

Last spring break was absolutely life changing for me.  It taught me a lot about dependence, friends, and trust.  I had to depend on people I barely knew to take care of me for 10 days.  I was forced to open up and because of that I made some awesome friends.  But the biggest thing was when I had to trust God not to let me die on the mountain.  Just joking about that last part, but on the real (that was such a Jr. High saying ) last spring beak was when I stop letting fear take over.  I used to fear so much.  I feared that I was never gonna be good enough for my parents.  I feared that people would not like the real”crazy” me.  I feared that I was never gonna be a good enough Christian because of my background.  But last spring break all my fears were laid aside.  I guess that is why I loved skiing so much.  It was during those runs down the mountain that I first let go of the fears that held me back for so long. 

        Now for this spring break update.  The first day we went to a smaller place.  I taught my friend how to ski.  She did amazing the first day.   She did better than I did on  my first day!.  Then she let fear take over and kinda stayed at the beginner level.  I felt for her because I was there last year, but I could not take her fear away for her.  I think she still had fun the rest of the trip.   Wednesday I turned 21.  All I did on that day was drive form 7am to 8:30pm. from Colorado to Tulsa.  I went to bed at 10pm and slept until 2pm the next day.  I was so tired.  Things I learned from this trip.  Girls complain a lot.   It is OK to fall down a mountain as long as you are still in control while falling.   Not all mountains were created equal.  I learned more and more how to see people through Jesus eyes.  What a sense of humor that God sure has.  He sure did stretch me on this trip So maybe I snapped at a couple of people, but hey I snapped a lot less than others and besides, I think they deserved it and I sure felt better.   So yea things don’t always go as planned, but hey live your life with no regrets right?  Peace out ya’ll
