My Passion

People who meet me and ask me what do you like to do? will know two things.
One I love skiing.
Second I love skiing so much, I want everyone else to love it just as much as I do! If they are already enjoy skiing they have just become my new best friend. If they give me a..."well I've never tried...seems kinda dangerous" stammering speech, they soon will become my newest victim to drag out to a ski slope, tell them they must strap pointed, long, and slippery things to their feet. Then proceed to point those things strapped to their feet, down a steep hill. Mean while I am excitingly telling them they are about to experience one of the greatest moment's in their lives!

My passion for skiing started when I was a kid. I remember my dad excitedly taking me to the ski slopes when I was big enough to learn. He first took me down the bunny hill. I remember thinking this bunny hill is HUGE, how am I going to get down this? But my dad would be right behind me and hold onto my coat, not letting me go to fast. First he taught me how to snow plow, then how to turn. I remember he stayed with me all day on the bunny hill teaching me how to ski.

The day that is planned to go skiing, I wake up excited! If I wasn't 20 and now considered an adult, I'd probably be dancing around the house like a little girl who just got a pony and pink ribbons. I love it all the snow, the wind, the slippery skis, the trees, the jump to get some air, the race to the bottom, the silly moments of laughter, but most of all the friends and family that make skiing all the fun!

This weekend as I got to go probably for the last time this season, the thought struck me, "The same passion and excitement I have for skiing, I want to have for Christ, for every one I meet I want them to know...
One I love Christ.
Second I love Him so much, that I want everyone else to love Him just as much and beyond what I do.

Maybe you love snowboarding instead, but has this thought struck you? "I want this kind of excitement that I have about snowboarding(or whatever it might be) to be a hundred times greater in my passion for Christ!!
