EASTER is almost here....YAY!

April 15 2006

I love everything that is going on right now. Work yesterday was fun. My boss is amazing and my job fit right into what I was looking for. Plus she even gave me Wednesdays off. YAY. And I have all the hours I need.

I've been jogging/walking on my road, either early in the morning or right before the sunset and I love it. It's wonderful "God time." I literally have conversations with Him while walking. I imagine my neighbors must think I am crazy but it's wonderful. I feel energized and happy.

I have work today and then after I get off I have to rush home because we are celebrating Easter and my niece's birthday with my ENTIRE family. It should be interesting.

I hope life is going well for all of you.

I can't stop SMILING. :-) :o)


April 13 2006

Life is wonderful, tiring, busy, and at times complicated. A lot going on. A lot I don't want to say.

I'm content for the first time in a long time.

35 days until graduation.

Work tomorrow from 9:30 until 7:00.


Life at a Fast Pace

April 10 2006

Last night I felt as if I was going to to explode due to stress...but everything is fine now. comes and goes...

So this is my life:

Wake up at 6:15. At school by 7. Leave school at 2:30. At work by 2:45. Leave work at 7:15. (Work is wonderful btw). Eat a quick dinner. Run for about three miles and then work out with weights. Shower. Homework for about 3-4 hours. Bed. REPEAT.

As busy and stressful as life can be...I love it. I'm finally learning time management....something that has taken me a long time to learn.

God provides. Duh. :-) :o)

"Lord, help prune away my suspicions and self-absorption and see the world around me with Your eyes, not mine; to be slow to judge, quick to love, slow to criticize, quick to tell of Your love- just as You were and are with me." ~Unknown

Learn From Great Bible Personalities

If you are impatient, sit down and talk to Job. If you are just a little strong-headed, go and see Moses. If you are tired and afraid, take a good look at Elijah. If there is no song in your heart, listen to David. If you feel cold and lonely, get the beloved disciple John to put his arm around you. If your faith is weak, read about the apostle Paul. If you are getting lazy, listen to James. If you are losing sight of the future, climb up the stairs of Revelation and get a glimpse of the promised land. ~Author Unknown

Where do I begin?

April 09 2006

I feel as if I'm trying so hard right now to put so many things behind me.

There are so many things I'm trying to sort many things I'm trying to understand.

Where do I begin? I feel lost in a sea of thoughts I can't escape.

"Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
I just wanna go home
Oh I miss you, you know"

Living a Blessed Life

April 08 2006

Okay. So. God has definitely given me a lot of surprises and blessings in the past week or so and they only keep getting better...

First, he blesses me with a job and it only took the first place I went to and the first day I tried.

Second, he blesses me with another scholarship for college

Third, I found out today that my sister is going to have another baby. How crazy is that?

I can't BELIEVE it. The baby is due November 5th. Wow....

I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) :-)

So now that makes three scholarships I've received to go towards college. This one is called the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship...and I was supposed to be notified last week but I wasn't so I didn't think I got it...but it came in the mail today. I ran from my mailbox to my car screaming and jumping up and down....I flew down my driveway and did another kind of dance and called my mom.

Even though I already have enough money for college I feel so blessed to have received it. This has increased my happiness level...which I didn't think could be done already.


Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

God has blessed me so much lately...I don't deserve any of it. I'm speechless.

Good Things About Life

April 05 2006
It's odd to see the changes in life when you finally do what you want and realize things that you need to. I look back on my life a few months ago and realize that some things are just better off being permanently in the past. I can finally say I'm happy........really happy.

The Right Words

April 04 2006

I wish I could find the right words to ever completely explain what I mean or how I feel....

"Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
When you fall everyone stands
Another day and you've had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your...
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know ya do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along"

I had a really rough morning with my allergies today. My eyes this morning were so puffy that it was hard to open them. I'm basically doped up on allergy medicine. Stupid allergies. Stupid pollen.

Work at the Peanut Gallery starts this week. I'm excited.

School starts back tomorrow. Joy. I have a paper due Friday that I haven't even started on.

I've officially become obessed with running and working out. We have a room in my house that has a treadmill and a workout bench. I'll run/speed walk a mile and then workout with weights for awhile and so on. I'm in love with it. I do it everyday....I started out doing two miles and now four....if I can find the time I would love to go six a day.

A lot going on in my life that I'm not ready to share yet but I will eventually....when the timing is right.

I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, that you not stir up, nor awaken love, until it so desires.  ~Song of Solomon 8:4

New Update

March 30 2006

I look like a clam....I was outside for about 7 hours yesterday and my face got burnt...really it's all swollen and puffy. How lovely....

Alicia and I walked 15 miles yesterday at the Greenway.

I got a job at the Peanut Gallery Toy Store over by Jason's Deli and Marble Slab. I'm happy because the owner is wonderful, sweet, and gave me the perfect schedule to work with and I start next week.

God is amazing and proves to me over and over and over that He has so many wonderful surprises in store.

It's an amazing feeling to know I'm right where I'm supposed to be in life.
