I can't think of anything to say so....
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances , for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
I love my little Katie.......with a love so strong it's overwhelming.

Yes I do.
Is anyone else as excited as I am about Christmas?!!!
Here are my two reasons why....

Today has been an OREO kind of day.
Buy me OREOs and I will love you forever....

I don't know why I am typing this.....I just feel I should.
It is so so so important to remember who we represent every second of every minute of everyday.....God. God has called us to be the shining lights in the world of darkness that we live in. As Christians we must remember that we are constantly being watched by those who are looking and searching for something greater than they are. We must always remember that they are watching us to see how Christians act and behave. When we do completely wrong things as "Christians" they are completely repelled and even some believe that if "Christians" do it then it's "okay" for them to do it.
We aren't perfect. No one can be perfect all the time. We are going to make mistakes but the important realization that needs to occur is that we can fix our mistakes so they don't happen again. Whether other people see what you do when no one else is around doesn't matter.....HE sees what you do. And He has told us that one day we will account for those actions and decisions we made. God has given us a life to bless others and bring them to Him. Why waste it doing things that are not uplifting and pleasing to God? If you claim to be a Christian.....act like it......not half of the time but all of the time....
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." [Matthew 5:16]

It's so odd.....love I mean. From the first moment I held Isabelle(my new niece) I love her as if I've known her my entire life. It's so odd how she has taken such a huge portion of my heart already. She isn't even a week old yet.
She's so beautiful....

Trust. Do we really know what it means? Do we really know what it means to trust God?
We can say so many times...."I am going to trust God with this and believe that it will be taken care of" yet we know deep down inside of us....we will try to fix it ourselves. God calls us to trust Him completely. Completely is not just a little bit or when we feel like it.....it's all of the time....whether our situation is big or small.
He calls us to trust Him because it shows our faith in Him. Trusting is so so so important in our Christian walk. I know it's hard to fully surrender things that are SO important to us over to Him.....but it takes exactly what our relationship with Him is made of....faith. And the most important thing to realize is that He cares even more than we do about our situations.
Believe and have faith for the small and the large things in your life...
If you humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, in His good time He will lift you up. Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. 1 Peter 5: 6-7 TLB
Donâ€™t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and donâ€™t forget to thank Him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience Godâ€™s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6-7 TLB

My sister had her second baby at approximately 7:30 this morning. I haven't seen her yet and I won't until I get off work but I'm SO excited. :-)
She is a girl and she weighs 6 pounds and 5 ounces. They haven't picked a name yet. haha. Hopefully soon...
I'm so happy.

My sister's baby is due on Sunday and I'm really really excited. It doesn't seem real that I am going to have another niece to love and spoil. :-)
I've been volunteering with Mrs. Jeana and Mr. Randy for The Judgment and I've had an absolute blast. I love it. I'm going to miss seeing them every night. hehe
School is somewhat overwhelming right now. I'm trying to take one day at a time.
And God truly does work in mysterious ways. Things that happen happen because of Him....not because of me. He's showing me the woman He wants me to be. And I'm loving every minute of it....
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

How do you know when you are making the right decision? Better yet.....how do you make every decision so you don't hurt someone in the end?
I don't know.

The Judgment was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I cried during one scene.......
I was so proud of everyone who was in it.

Have I mentioned how beautiful fall is yet? I can't remember if I have or not. I absolutely love it......other than when my nose is cold.
Hmmm. So I am craving Hershey kisses and hot chocolate.

I've studied and studied and I still don't feel prepared for a test I am going to have tomorrow morning.
I'm so nervous I gave myself a stomachache. Bleh.....
I need a hug....

There is a huge hill close to where I live that I visit at night. You can see the lights of the city below and it's so beautiful. You have to be in the perfect position on top of the hill in order to see a clear view of it.
Should I take you with me?

So.....I'm sitting in English class today.....trying to pay attention to my teacher.....and all of a sudden she stops lecturing and approaches me and tells me in front of the class that I look exhausted. And then asks me if I've been getting any sleep and if I'm okay. She then goes on and tells me that if she could she would let me leave class and go take a nap. Her homework for me is to get some rest. When someone tells you you look tired its like another expression for...."You look terrible today. haha. So evidently I looked terrible today. Yeah....
And then.....Alicia and I went to Wendy's for lunch and I burnt my tongue on some very very hot nasty chili. :-( Owwwy....

In the beginning, God created the earth and rested. Then God created Woman. Since then, neither God nor Man has rested.

......makes me giggle
It gets so crazy sometimes and you don't know whether to go left or go right. And you feel like you are in this constant spin.
And then all of a sudden you......STOP. And you realize that you have been facing the right direction all along.....and so you take one step forward.....
And you know that life is too short to take it for granted...
AND you start to LIVE it.....
Sometimes I feel like this little girl......
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it. -- Anonymous

I talked my Women's Studies teacher out of class on Friday.......so I get to leave after my first class which means I am out of there by 8:55 a.m. ! YAY! Hmmm......whatever shall I do with all that free time.....
A lot of things are happening that I am so unsure of. I'm just praying for some direction so I know what path to take...and to know most importantly what He wants.
I miss you so very very much.....
