After our morning adventures with the horses and driving around the mountains, Kyleen and I headed to Venice Beach to watch the sunset and see the performers. While the dancers, drummers and skaters were entertaining, by far the funniest thing I saw while we walked around was a teenage girl who was running around shouting, "I am a fat cupcake!" at the top of her lungs. She was hanging out with some guys around a henna tattoo stand, and when we passed them, Kyleen turned to me and said, "I want one!" So we stopped and she asked the man to sketch the tattoo that she eventually wants to get permanently done on her wrist.
To explain a little bit, Kyleen believes that God is calling her to serve him in Africa. She does not know when- she just knows that one day she is supposed to go. Whether or not you are a believer in Christ, I encourage you to check out her blog. She is dedicated to following God's will for her life, and so far He has led her on quite an exciting adventure. I am really excited that I've been able to be a part of it, and I look forward to seeing where God leads her next!
As we sat on the beach, I couldn't help but think about how amazing sunsets are. Every one is so very different, and I believe in SoCal (or maybe it's just on the west coast in general) the sunsets seem much more colorful and brilliant than they are do in Atlanta. I see sunsets like this and others that people like Becker post on their blogs, and I am just overwhelmed by how absolutely beautiful they are.
