Dun dun dun....

Yes its Monday. This has defintley been a Monday. One thing is I have planned on something and because of circumstance beyond my control these things did not pan out. It's frustrating when you depend on something, and some very important things depend on it. So since its almost the end of the day, I'm guessing it won't be solved until tomorrow.

Tonight is my last class until January. I have a presentation which I'm dreading. I'm not a fan of giving presentations. BOO! But it only has to be 1-3 minutes. Surely I can talk that long... I know I can. LOL

Thanksgiving was amazing!  We gave a surprise to my grandparents.
Oh I love my family!

There are still some fam I would love to see in GA, maybe the beginning of the year. Miss those guys! =)

Our Christmas tree is up! YAY! I have all my decorations out! LOVE IT!! There is just something about Christmas!

Well I must get ready. I might go ahead and leave for school. Get some stuff printed out. And maybe a 10 min nap =)

Today in honor of Thanksgiving, I'm posting a Local story
MIddle Schoolers help feed the Hungry Love it when kids get involved helping! Teaches them about love, giving-showing them they are blessed to have what they do. 
Thanksgiving came early for some that were in need This is just wonderful!
So our church's food pantry did not make the news, however I think God deserves to be praised for happened at Harvest Food Pantry Friday November 18th.  Thursday our Restorative Justice ministry made over 250 bags of groceries! Friday morning there were several here EARLY lined up waiting for groceries! We gave EVERY bag away along with turkey vouchers for a turkey from a local grocery store! We also had 40 new families come that had never been here! Glory be to God for providing and bringing these individuals to our food pantry! I am still giving out vouchers today, I'm thankful that this is my job! I've already cried with one, and got …

Monday, Monday

Yes, obviously "Saintly Saturday" was overlooked...I was enjoying a weekend with two of my good friends~ It was so much fun to be '14' again!

* Have to add something in here for Saintly Saturday...My grandparents. Bill and Sharon Lyman are two of the most wonderful people I know. I love them dearly. They were gracious enough (as always) letting my friends and I crash at their house. The loudness, the mess, the laughing. It was a blast. They are so entertaining. Between Grandpa's stories of his younger days.. to Grandma getting frustrated because Grandpa kept interupting her! They are always giving so much to their family, it would take me  a billion years to pay them back for how much they mean to me and have done for me. *

So here it is Monday!! AAHHH Yes its here!

Not much to write, need to be doing my projects for class tonight but I'm avoiding about to do them... Just after I blog. So because this is going to a relatively calm day I decided that I would j…

Thoughtful Thursday

So here we are again for Thoughtful Thursday...

This last week has been a crazy one to say the least... During this crazy week a conversation with one of my dear friends has stirred me.. ruffled my feathers so to speak =)

When I was a teenager, learning about God and my walk. I was extremely hard on those that did not live up to standards of what I thought was the "right" way to live.  The bible speaks plainly about how he expects us to live. He wants us to live like Christ, period. In my young age I just had no room for error. In fact as hard as I was on people around me I was 100x worse on myself.

There was no compassion, there was only judging and condemnation. I loved, don't get me wrong. The choices that some of my friends and loved ones made were not right according to the word. But the way I received them or what my heart was saying about them was just as bad as their own sin. I wasn't showing Christ love.

I would get so angry with those who knew as much or if…

Monday, Monday...

OK, so Monday has made it, and I know millions of people were dreading it. Honestly I was looking forward toward this Monday... I know crazy right? Well I'm off on Mondays and its usually my school work day, my running around, my cleaning day. However this Monday was going to be different because Josh was off with me.

****back up... the reason this is so exciting is because for almost a year straight Josh had EVERY Monday off. It was a designated day together. We would usually go out for breakfast and just spend the a nice , calm day together. Well when Josh got his new job in August, our Monday's were taken away. ****

So, after looking forward to this day you can say I was a little dispointed that Josh woke up SICK yesterday. So I tucked him back in and went on to church with out him. Which I do not like. But he was just feeling bad. So today I was hoping he was feeling better

Because after all this was supposed to be OUR Monday!? Well he still wasn't feeling all that grea…

Saintly Saturday

So for Saturdays are going to be reserved for "Saintly Saturday" ... I will either share a story I find, hear, or expierence that features someone acting as a servant to people. Who put others before themselves...

So, my first one is going to be my great-grandmother. Vera Ester Pruitt, she passed away when I was 8 yrs old. I remember her funerial vividly. She made a lasting impression on me.

I've heard countless stories of this wonderful woman.Grandma Pruitt preached at her little church on her property. She would pick up strangers and feed them, no matter what they looked like or smelled like. She didn't care. She was about showing them that there was a savior who loved them.

She made such an impression her little town that when she would stop by the fast food places they would just take her checks, knowing they probably weren't good. (She thought if she had checks she had money heehee)

She reached out to my dad before he was saved, made him know she didn't …

Thoughtful Thursday

So I have seen on a few blogs lately that people have a theme for each weekday... Well I really like to blog but sometimes need some direction. So I decided to follow the bloggers out there come up with a theme for each weekday. Thursdays are "Thoughtful Thursday". This is just some thoughts maybe sometimes serious, sometimes funny...

So, something that has been on my mind consistently lately is- How do people see me?

Everyone that knows me I'm pretty sure knows that Christ is the center of my life. Not religious hogwash (that is definitely a southern term I believe HA!) But an actual daily relationship with Jesus! I love him! I want to honor him, I want God to look at me and say "Well done good and faithful servant" ... All Glory goes to him! Please don't misunderstand, if I have offended you then I want to make amends and talk it out, but I'm not a person that depends on others feelings about me. I am who God made me, we all have our quirks. However, …
Ugh... Today was one of those days where either I am just sensitive or people are being insensitive. So I decided to follow suit with my cousin Amberly and on Wednesday's will be dedicated to "What I'm Loving Wednesday"... It seems Wednesdays are are always crazy , so maybe this will help to get me in a better disposition.
I love that when Josh and I get in a disagreement we both can apologize. I can be honest with him if he upsets me, then I can tell him and he ALWAYS says he is sorryI love that when I am in a bad mood I watch Roseanne, it helps some how I love that when a bad mood happens, all I have to do is walk to the building behind me and see my niece and nephewI love that I'm losing so much weight that I need a belt with all me pants =)I love that on Wednesdays I get to go to church, and after praise and worship I feel rejuvenated. I love when Josh is off on Wednesday's! That's what I LOVE <3

Am I truly thankful?

This is a question I have asked  myself today. Some may know, some may not that Josh and I have been trying to get pregnant. Just trying naturally haven't went into the medicines and all that. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15... its a very frustrating condition. It makes me late or nothing at all, which always gives me hope that maybe, just maybe we are finally pregnant. My heart has been crushed each time. This past summer, I really thought I was pregnant but after almost 3 mo. I started. It crushed me. God was teaching me something though. To trust in him. Even though I might feel week he is my strength. I accepted the fact that I may not be able to get pregnant  for whatever reason. Adoption might be the avenue we take, then maybe we won't have kids at all. That thought almost chokes me. However, I'm happy, I'm not depressed. I'll admit it is a struggle daily, but the 'Joy of the Lord is my strength'. I mean that. It's not something I'm sp…
