ted & jeni

Ted Lasso is back!

Season Three is off to a grand start and I think it was simply brilliant of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream to create a particularly WONDERFUL new flavor to celebrate the show’s return.

(But I do verily hope it stays around for a long time!)



Ted Lasso is an American sportscomedy-drama television series developed by Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly, based on a character Sudeikis first portrayed in a series of promos for NBC Sports’ coverage of England’s Premier League. The show follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach who is hired to coach an English soccer team with the secret intention that his inexperience will lead it to failure, but whose folksy, optimistic leadership proves unexpectedly successful.


Jeni Britton Bauer is the founder and chief creative officer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, which got its start in Columbus, Ohio. What makes Jeni’s so splendid is their belief that how ice cream melts is everything!

“We’ve worked hard to get this right, building our ice creams from the ground up to melt a very specific way – thinly, cleanly – and to reveal scent and flavor as it slowly melts. We geek out over ice cream science, rearranging the molecules to support all four sensory elements of ice cream: flavor, texture, body and finish.

We think uniting Ted & Jeni’s is a definite winning combination!

One that’s sure to take The Cup this Season.

Both in Soccer and Scoop!

hugs n’ blessings to all those who find it fun to cheer them on!!

humble gift

Do you like surprises?

I know some people who especially love the buildup and anticipation surrounding surprise gifts.

God has a gift for us today, but we must be willing to let him surprise us.

This is the gift of humility.

Humility is when we come to God confessing we don’t know the answer; we don’t have it all figured out.

Where there is pride, there is no room for surprise.

We feel the pressure to have all the answers, but God is asking us to let go of that.

When we unwrap humility, we are positioned to receive this wisdom, knowledge, and understanding that Proverbs is talking about.

Gifts upon gifts!

God cannot be manipulated, bossed around, or controlled.

Humility is us pouring ourselves small before him.

Maybe the things you continue to struggle with and try to figure out alone, you now submit to him. Or believe God when the odds are stacked against the promise.

Or open your hands in areas you typically want to grasp tightly!

The wonder, delight, and surprise at the glory of God that might be missing can be found when you unwrap your gift of humility.

God, you are mighty, and I am not!

You know everything, I do not.

I give you complete control today.

Humbly, I open my hands before you and release my control.

Are there any areas you need to walk humbly in, right now?

If so, let’s do it together!

hugs n’ blessings for the humble walks we shall take together with the Lord.

The Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:6
