Well Done Gabby!

I don’t know about you, but I just feel like smiling that big Gabby smile all day today!

Big congrats to GABBY DOUGLAS!   The Olympic All Around Champion.  

Her tiny 4’11” could hardly contain her giant smile, and the gold medal around her neck.  It seems like the rest of America is smiling with her today.  

I noticed the night before she competed she sent out this tweet

"Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me". (Psalm 103:2)

The next day she made history become the first African American Gold Medalist in the All Around Competition.

After she won the Gold, she immediately gave her victory to God by saying, "I just give all the glory to God.  It's funny how all that works, I put the glory up and the blessings come down."  

There’s only one thing I could do without in the news coverage about her today.  The web is all a buzz complaining about her unkempt pony tail.  Seriously?!  

The girl flies through the air flipping and twirling, she can wear her hair any way she would like. 

So in her honor, I’m sporting a Gabby Pony Tail!  

Actually I wear this everyday, but today it’s for Gabby!  

'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' –Matthew 25:21

I am totally ok with her ponytale! I have seen way worse. The thing that bothered me all night was Mustafina from Russia and her eye make up. No matter what expression she wore on her face, the way she applied her eye shadow made it look like she was crying. I noticed it in previous days of competition too.
