Getting there....

O.......kla-homa where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat
can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Can't you just hear it? I can just envision all the actors in their "pioneer" get-up belting out the tunes and dancing their little hearts out. I do love me a good musical!

I have to admit that this state, well, I guess mainly T-town is growing on me. There are many things to do here - water activities (tons of lakes and state parks), an aquarium, zoo, art galleries, neat restaurants, fun antique shops, concerts, etc. It is one of the prettiest cities I have ever lived in. It really reminds me a lot of East Texas with all of the trees and hills.

Do I miss Texas? You bet! Would I move back in a heart-beat? Absolutely! Am I enjoying new places, faces, and scenery? No question! Am I ready to call Oklahoma my home? Not quite yet, but I guess you could say this is a new journey and I know God has some exciting things in store for my family here. I am getting there.....

Hi Sassy, thought I would say hello. It took me a while to get used to a new place. But once I started to meet new freinds and find fun places to go, it got alot better. -Cheers, Amy

Every time I move, it takes FOREVER to get comfortable again. You make friends, but it take time to make the kind of friends who get to see your house when it isn't cleaned up- know what I mean?

I only know one T town in OK and they have absolutely beautiful Springs. If you're there, get ready for a show. The Azaelas are amazing. I used to live in NW Louisiana and I miss the spring there. (but not the summer. yuck)

Does T-town still have the "Oklahoma" as an outdoor musical at Discoveryland? That was always a fun thing to do. I'm glad to hear you're acclimating to Oklahoma. Sounds like you're making some great friends already.

Hi Sassy - just found your blog and would love to know where you took the beautiful photo of the waterfall and swimming "hole"??!! I live in the Dallas area, about 45minutes from Sherman and I'm hoping it's close to home!
thanks,
Cindy

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
