But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility... Eph. 2:13-14

New Year's Eve and getting on the same page

Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I did!

I want to tell everyone thank you for being so generous! I really don't deserve anything. You guys are awesome!

Ok, so first thing I'm going to do is tell you what my reader's like:


Results From my Pet Poll:
Cat        - 35%
Dog       - 28%
Dragon - 21%
Lama    -   7%
Turtle   -   7%

Thank you for participating, everyone! I'll be putting a new Poll on soon.

Also, I thought you might like to know that it didn't snow on Christmas. Sad.

Anyway, I'm back!  I just got back Saturday from visiting my family in the middle of nowhere. :D 
It was a lot of fun. I'm not usually a very sport-enjoying person, and have never had an interest in Basketball, but the whole time I went to a tournament and really liked it! I think it was because it was live. Anyway, yeah. I had a good time.

Tonight some friends of the family are coming over like they did last year and used to do more often (or at least I think they did). Anyway, they're like family. I've known them my whole life. So everyone is really looking forward to the celebration.

So yeah, God is Good and life is cool. I'm having a hard time because my sister's birthday wasn't very long ago and I'm not able to give her her present yet. A lady at our church is helping me with it and I have to wait until Wednesday to get it, finish it, and give it. But hey, her actual party isn't for a long time, so I'll look really good compared to a lot of people. 

Well, I guess I'll sign off for now. 
Thank you for reading!!!

Wednesday, December 12

Hey, so I guess after the weird post that I had on here yesterday you're wondering what happened today, right?

Not much.

I didn't die.
I didn't meet the man of my dreams.
My house didn't burn down.
And it didn't snow.*

*It's also not Christmas, so that doesn't count.

Anyway, it was a much better day than yesterday because I was in God's word a lot more today. See, yesterday I didn't have it figured out yet, but today I've got it. I just have to keep praying and reading the Bible. I know that sounds kinda cliché, but I mean it. Nothing else will do. Awesome, huh? I wish it could be like this all the time, only sunny outside.

So I'll sign off for now.

Be sure to take advantage of my little survey 
Only 4 days left to vote!

So anyway, have an awesome night, everybody! I love you guys!

A little update on my life

Well, I left everyone with a pretty boring post, so I guess I'll give a little update.

The wedding rehearsal went well. I learned my easy part and everything. Bridesmaids really do have it easy. They just walk up and stand there through the whole wedding. 

The wedding itself went well, too. Sheila looked beautiful. It was very emotional in the changing room. Everyone was crying and trying to keep the bride from crying. I kept thinking about when we were little and we used to dress up as brides. If that won't get you teary-eyed I don't know what will.

Anyway, the reception was pretty wild. We left really early. I won't go into any details. 

So everything is absolutely crazy. Please pray for me. At least the dog is behaving.

And the sun hasn't shown in days. It's never gotten to me before, but it's getting to me now. Praise God that he is greater than sunlight. Greater than recreation, greater than the world's view of a good time and so much greater than I. 

I know that no matter what happens God is in control. He already knows what's going to happen. He's got it all figured out. All I have to do is go with His flow. Whether it means I die tomorrow, or I meet the man of my dreams tomorrow, that my house burns down or it snows on Christmas. His grace is sufficient. Wow.

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do!!!

Ok, I think maybe there might be some confusion on the whole Bandit nightmare, so I'm going to try to make everything clear.

Bandit is a bad dog.
We love Bandit even though he is a devil dog.
Bandit has bitten everyone in my family.
When Bandit is good, he's very good. 
But when he is bad, he is horrid.
Bandit bit Dad.
That was supposed to have been the death sentence.
My family just couldn't make up their minds.
We took Bandit to the vet to see if there was a cheap alternative.
We came home with Bandit and some tranquilizers.
We gave Bandit a tranquilizer.
It worked.
We love Bandit.
Bandit is still alive until further notice.

Sorry if my ranting and raving left you confused and depressed. Just be glad you weren't me. 
Anyway, everything is back to normal. Unless the tranquilizers stop working it looks like we're stuck with my precious mutt until he dies. What a relief!
