Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

God's Country

2 weekends ago we loaded up for God's Country, aka. Oxford. We got there Friday and ate at the new Boure, old Downtown Grille. It was great food and the newly renovated building is so cool! Zach was asked to speak at the American Bar Association spring event at the new Ole Miss Law School. What an awesome facility those new law students have... Zach's building looked like a penitentiary so this is a huge upgrade. Zach's lecture on "non-traditional legal careers" was very interesting and I realized that morning as I sat and listened to him talk about his "outside of the box" approach, how proud I am of that man for forging his own path in a very unstable economy. What makes his career "non-traditional" is the fact that he started his own law firm, something that few new attorneys dare to do especially in our economic climate. He also touched on his App development and got a lot of interest from the crowd on that subject. God has been very good to us and I know that we have been blessed by opportunities and timing working together perfectly. Austin spent the morning with the Schove family while we were at the conference and then we all met up for a big Ajax lunch, yummy!!! It was the perfect way to end the weekend, good friends and a good meal.
