Rain...it makes me smile:)

I don't ever update anymore. I think about it a lot but I just don't do it. I never feel like there is anything really exciting to write about.

I did get a new job at Starbucks. I really like it but it is too early in the game to declare it the best job ever. Every job has always been good in the beginning. I do know one thing: Im glad I no longer am employed by good ol' Biggby. I am officially sick of that place. (Ironically Biggby is where I am currently writing to you from, gotta get the internet from somewhere right?)

I am enjoying this weather. Maybe it is actually spring. Buttt I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I am registering for classes tomorrow. I am very stoked about it.

I am reading "Believing God" by Beth Moore right now. I really love Beth Moore. She encourages me. This book is about about having an "action verb" kind of faith. It is about Beleiving God is who he says he is, that he can do what he says he can do, and that I am who he says I am. Im really being challenged by it and it is about time because I feel as though I have had a stagnant faith.
She encourages you to make practical changes in your life for a given time to further sanctify your life. Have I ever mentioned how practical of a person I am and that my favorite thing in the world is for someone to challenge me to do practical THINGS. So for now I am going to REcommit myself to not watching R rated movies, not reading non Christian books and basically not letting junk in my mind. I used to be so careful about this because I have a super vulnerable mind. If I see it or if I read it I begin to fear it or dream it or think it. I am not the person that can watch it, enjoy it and forget about it. Some people are that way and I think there is nothing wrong with that and I trust that each person follows there own convictions of what they can and can't do. But for me I am going to go back to being uber careful. My husband has chosen to recommit to this with me as well.

Im exicted. Its good for us because we have let a lot of things that we once felt strongly about slide.

I was really excited about putting pictures on here until I realized that I have very few. This new camera that I was so excited about...well I kinda forgot about it soo I will try to start taking pictures again. But don't hold your breath.

Im cold and tired. Its bed time.


Try to remember this daily with me and lets live our lives accordingly: God is who he says he is. And God can do what he says he can do. i.e. heal the blind, or the broken hearted or the sick. Do you really believe that?

I did the "Believeing God" study in Roanoke last year and is really good...what stuck with me the most was being reminded that I am who GOD says I am, not what I think I am.

Also, you should check out Beth Moore's blog at livingproofministries.blogspot.com. Very encouraging and insightful. She's an amazing writer.

Good for you on being more intentional about what you allow into your mind. I decided not to watch R rated movies near the end of college. I did leave myself an out in case I was required to watch one for a class or something. I decided to give an extra $100 offering - I've only watched one - The Passion of the Christ. It was worth the $100. Kevin made a 10 year commitment so in a year or so he may choose to watch a couple.
Tell Mark hi - the kids and I thought of him the other day when we got some cheap chocolate ice-cream. Glad I found your blog. Hope your job is going well and that you have fun at school.
