A Totally Shocking Dunk in the Pool

For our last anniversary Jessica took some of our really old pictures (like, from our wedding & honeymoon) along with some more recent ones and put them together with the song by Jason Mraz, "Lucky," which starts off "Lucky to be in love with my best friend..." It's a perfect song for Johnny and me. We really, usually, have a lot of fun together. Writing our new Bible study together has been a very interesting experience. I have loved talking to Johnny and brainstorming and studying and searching to prepare our devotion guide and indepth study. Yesterday we went 5 miles on a trail by the river in Fort Worth in prep for the 15k. Let's just say, I've gotta lot of work to do if I'm gonna run 9 miles in 2 months. Today we worked in the yard together. I had to pull some weeds and he came over to help when he finished his other work. When we finished with the weeds, he brought over a big bag of mulch to put in. I sat with my feet in the pool and tried to get the dirt and mud out from underneath my fingernails because my gloves got left out and were soaking wet and I had to pull weeds barehanded. Jessica came out about that time and Johnny said thanks to me (sarcastically) for helping with the mulch. I replied that I couldn't pick up that big bag cuz my back hurt. (stay with me, I'm about to get to the good part) I then walked over and said, "I think the flower bed needs more mulch." He said, "Be careful or I'll throw you in the pool." I looked at Jessica and said, "I'm not scared." Not scared, because never in a million bazillion years did I think he would throw me into the pool. Next thing I know, however, I was off my feet and we were both in the pool. Fully clothed. Johnny still even had his work boots on. He just picked me up and jumped in. I couldn't catch my breath when I first came up because of the shock of actually being thrown in the pool. Once I did, however, I laughed. Jessica went in the house to get Jacob because she thought it was just hilarious.

Yeah, I'm lucky to be in love with my best friend... even if he did thrown me in the pool.

Serving the King,
