There are also some pics of our new friends playing twister...quite a sight I must say.
Anyone up for a trip to New York? There is always something to do. By the way, in case I haven't mentioned this in a while, I love New York and I love my job!

Cool thing about it was the friends we made. Yes they are all theater majors, and they kept us entertained with their dance routines and Twister challenges and their drama!!!
I love New York city and I am so blessed to be a part of what God is doing here. Words can't describe how I feel about what God is doing in my life right now.
My God, How Great Thou Art...

I wanted to share the chorus with you...
this made me laugh out loud...
hopefully one day soon this will be true...
Your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk and then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man
Your touch, it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again
In the arms of a woman that a mother gave the name Maria
The gift she gives me gets me through the day
I reach across the bed where she lay
Then I look up and see the moon dance on her skin
My heart starts poundin' once again
It's a sweet intoxication, a powerful frustration
How I want her, oh how I need her

The Gallery Church had their first mission team this past week. The Win Shape program from Berry College brought eight people to help us pass out Relevant magazines at NYU.
This was my first team and I have learned so much from them and this experience. These are some of the things I have learned...
1. God is in control.
2. Confidence is a miracle worker.
3. Did I mention God is in control?
I learned alot more, but most importantly God just kept reminding me that it's about Him and not about me or anyone else for that matter. He is in control and His plans will prevail.
Overall it was a great weekend.

My vacation has been jammed packed full of goodies...staying with the Hardings, going to an Auburn game (War Eagle Hey!), going to McCalisters for Chicken Tortilla soup, being in the heat and humidity, Sonice Route 44 Diet Cherry Coke, and tons of other great things.
I love New York and I am so excited to be a part of God's story there, but my heart loves the South. I love southern hospitality and bad driving. I can't wait to go home in a couple of months to be with my family.
Only two more days of vacation and then back NYC!!!
This is a random note...the first time I went to China, Justin Vance and I were walking back to the girls' apartment and he was singing a country song and it said something about sweet tea. We both stopped and looked at each other like that was the sweetest words to our ears. Ellie and I make sweet tea in NY, but it doesn't compare to Southern sweet tea!!! Thank God for sweet tea!

If you know me, you know how much I love my Mom. She is an amazing woman of God. She nags me about money and going to the doctor when I feel bad. And with these things, I know she cares. She is a child at heart and always will be.
If you don't know me then you don't know that my Mom got married when she was 16 and had me when she was 17. She gave up her childhood so that I could live my life and reach for my dreams. I can't remember a time when she didn't make me breakfast before I went to school or make extra dinner when I unexpectedly brought 4 or 5 of my friends home. She has never missed anything that I have performed in...this even counts college. She rearranged her life for me and my brother.
I am so blessed to have a Mother and Father who love me and are understanding when I tell them that I want to move thousands of miles away to pursue God's heart instead of the music business. That to live a life of comfort is just not in the cards for me.
I hope one day that I get the chance to be like my Mother with my own children.
I didn't intend for this to be so sentimental and sappy, but just share that I am way excited to see my Mom tomorrow. It's like waiting up all night on Christmas Eve in the hopes of getting to see a glimpse of Santa Claus, but this is even better because she is REAL and I get to hang out with her for three whole days!
If you call this weekend and I don't answer...it's because I am hanging out with my MOM!!!!!

So my Mom called me this morning and told me she put money on my Starbucks card! I was way excited. Since moving to New York, I have become a coffee drinker. I also started eating yogurt covered raisins...thanks to my roomie Ellie. Which by the way, I miss you bunches and I am ready for you to come back.
So I am waiting on Meredith to finish what she is doing so we can go to her place and make dinner. We are planning on making chicken salad and watching either Spanglish or Miss Congeniality 2. Netflix is the greatest thing ever. I just pick what movies I want and they come to my mailbox. It is terrific!
It's only two more weeks till The Gilmore Girls season starts! If you haven't watched the show, you are missing out. The night before Ellie left for the Boro, we watched eight episodes of the third season. I think I am addicted.
Well...I am hoping that Meredith is almost ready, but if you know Meredith...you know I will probably be waiting another 10 or 15 minutes. You gotta love her!

I don't know how to make this a link so just copy it and go to the site. It's funny to see what it has to say.
Sereta Maria Haun means...
Very much an individual with a charismatic personality and keen mind you attract many admirers and much affection. You are extremely sociable and build relationships with honesty, trust and a good sense of humour. You have great potential for material success using your intellectual skills possibly in writing or speaking. Your industry, determination and positive mental attitude always win out.

Home is where your heart is. And lately I have been extremely homesick. I don't know that it is for a certain place...Clinton, Murfreesboro, or New York. I miss all my friends and family. The people who I have grown so close to over the years or even as short of time as a week.
Thank you to the people who hold such a huge place in my heart. Even though I am not with you, know I love you all very much and miss you.
And if you feel like it, you can always come to New York. I mean there's always room for more Southerners.

The subway was totally messed up because of construction so it took a while for us to get around. I took a cab, then the 2 train, then a shuttle bus to the ferry, then a ferry to Staten Island, and then hopped on a church van to go to George's church.
I spent the afternoon with Lane and Hodg-E. I had the best time with them. We talked for hours just catching up on each other and then watched a movie. We went to dinner at a restaurant on a street that reminded me of Harry Potter. On our way back, it began to rain. So to that I must say I got soaking wet. It was fun though. All of us running from cover to cover. It was quite a sight.
When I finally headed home, the 2 train was closed down at their apartment because of floods. To make a long story short, let me just say that it took me an hour and a half to get home. It normally takes about 30 or so minutes. And when I finally made it to where I needed to be, it started pouring again. And so I got drenched again.
All in all, as many mishaps as there were, I had a wonderful day. I love this city!
