A Reflection of My Journey!

Well, I had planned to do this when I came through my first year mark, but since that has come and gone I thought I would do it now before I moved on to other topics that I really want to talk about. I have chosen several entries over the last year that I feel kind of mark my blog experience, those things that I hope when people visit my blog feel that they have sort of an experience rather than simply a good time...I am random and a whirlwind and all about having fun, but I feel like have the ability through this medium to communicate my passions about my Savior and that is one of the things I'm most blessed

This is the one I got the most flack for...

This post is a reflection of how film and television effect my heart...

It never hurts to show your weaknesses...

In the Midst of the Flame!

For all of those who desire to live "uneven" so that they can lean on Christ, who desire to live in the midst of the flame as Marcia talked about on "The Desire" let me give a little food for thought...(Claire and Dawn I responded to your comments)

Burnin' by Nichole Nordeman:

Started rubbing sticks together
Thought a spark would take forever
Never dreamt this fire would appear
When Moses saw the bush in flames
And heard the branches speak his name
I wonder if he felt this kind of fear
Cuz I'm burnin'
And I know I'm gonna blister in these flames
But I'll stay here till this smoke clears
And I'll find you in the ashes that remain

Used to be that I could say
My faith was one arm's length away
From any flame that ever felt too warm
Asked for matches, but I received
A gallon full of gasoline
And now my cozy campfire days are gone

"Knock with caution at the door,"
they said, "Beware of what you're praying for"
So I'll stand with my wh…

Lest I Forget & Ripping Off Barlow Girl!!!

Lest I easy it is for me to do that so it can I feel Him so close, want to do His will and just run flat away from Him in the very next moment...truly forgetting everything...Eldredge was right, we wake up each morning unbelievers and have to remind ourselves why we believe what we do...I was going to right something profound, but instead I thought I would rip Barlow Girl off by stealing some of the questions they answered in their bios, hope they don't mind cause I love them so and their new album ROCKS...check them out at their sit, Lauren, girls ROCK!

UPDATE...sorry I didn't actually answer the music one, those were Alyssa's answers, they are all fixed now! ...Much Love, just view my profile if you want a more detailed list of what I like ot watch and listen to!

What music do you listen to? BarlowGirl!! Todd Agnew, I do like Country, Kane, Sara Groves, and some pop rock stuff like Bon Jovi and Rob Thomas...I p…

With One Word!

I got on today to check my email and was completely and totally overwhelmed by all the lovely words that I found to describe me. I was filled with overflowing by every single one and I am thankful for the comments! I know that God has got His divine hand on me, and through each and everyone of you that are so precious and dear to my life He is able to show me a glimpse of His Kingdom. You all will never truly know just HOW much you mean to me. I don't deserve this incredible love, but I'm so thankful that I have it!

I have been thinking today at just how big God is, that He is so big that it is hard to even contain, I think that is why sometimes we have to check out for a moment, break away and run because it is all just to much to big, for when we get close enough to Him we see our true selves and realize that we really are lions and lionesses or future kings and queens...heirs to the throne with Him! I want so deeply to be like Marcia say in the midst of the flame, yet I'…

Broken Alabaster Jar!

I am reminded of my Broken Dreams post awhile back. It I and mas easy to reconcile yourself to the fact that you live in a broken dream and there is no hope beyond that; so we spend our time patching up the broken pieces as best we can in hopes that we make ourselves look presentable to the outside world and push on in our "Christian" duty.

So, what if we do live in a broken dream…Becky from In the Quiet was talking about brokenness in her blog the other day and she quoted a Henri Nouwen Devotional; "Fruits that Grow in Vulnerability":

"Fruits, however, come from weakness an vulnerability, and fruits are unique. A child is the fruit conceived in vulnerability, community is the fruit born through shared brokenness, and intimacy is fruit that grows through touching one another's wounds. Let's remind one another that what brings u true joy is not successfulness but fruitfulness!"

Successfulness is what the world teaches us, you aren't anything unles…

Broken Jars and Such...

You know I had handwritten this lovely little post that I was going to post tonight and left it at work, God willing no one will find it at tell on know I've realized how fortunate I am to have such a wonderful job like mine...I get the freedom of creating my own schedule...I get the freedom of kind of living life freely...I'm able to spend time with friends and family more easily. I've been unfairly frustrated and now I'm overly paranoid...I'm worried that I'll be found doing something wrong and get in trouble again, I know this is straight from satan and that I need to trust in the great hand of Providence that is guiding me...

So, I will pose a question until I hopefully find the work that I've done when I go to work do you really show Christ in the workplace?

Is it by the work you do, because I'll be honest...all I've been wanting to do is read the word and my Christian magazines as of late and I've been doing…

Reflection on 2005

Courtesy of Claire Bug...

1. What did you do in 2005 that you had never done before? Salsa Daning...can't say I've ever done that!

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I can't remember what I resolved to do last year, I know I wanted to grow in the Lord and I did that...with all the good and bad...this year I'm vowing to God to give Him my dreams this is not the easiest thing in the world, in fact probably the hardest thing that there is to do, I'm trying to surrender to His will...we will see what He has in store...

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? No, but two people that I'm close to got pregnant ;)

4. Did anyone close to you die? Yes! Kyle Hans at work.

5. What countries did you visit? Didn't visit any countries...

6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005? Really if I think about it I don't lack for anything...God provides everything I could ask for, but while I don't think I…

In the Darkness!

First, thank you everyone who posted a comment on the previous post. It thoroughly warmed me through to the bone. You are all such precious precious precious people!

I have been deeply effected by the Sago Coal Mine Tragedy! I was up from 2:30am to 4:30 am this morning glued to the television. I had lifted up many prayers since this tragedy about those miners and then when I heard they were alive I was overjoyed! To find out later the truth it struck a hear wrenching cord within me. I just ask that you remember the families in your prayers and the sole survivor, that when he comes out of this that he won't consider it a burden, but be able to to justice to the memory of the other miners who lost their lives.

I was very quiet and reflective today at work due to this tragedy and I was just thinking about a lot of things in my life and a lot of stuff in general. I wasn't angry or ill, just reflective. I was reflective on the miracles and blessing in my life as of late, I was strugg…

It's a Cycle!

Well, I thought if I'm going to start posting on a regular basis then I should probably let you know a little bit about what is going on with me. These last two months have been hell, there is just no other way to put it! I have never experienced a season like this in retail nor to I ever desire to do so again, and then I had overtaxed myself with things that I thought would get me in the spirit and I just worked myself to the bone until I had little to nothing to give back! God willing I will not be in retail next Christmas!

These last two month God has allowed satan to place me back into the Shadow of Death a little bit. I've just been spinning my wheels. In fact since growing up in church that is what my life tends to do...I have this great pivital moments and I fall flat on my face before the Lord and I'm like I promise...I promise...I live for you and then well, you know what I slip right back into my old though processes and chasings after the wind. Once …

I'm Back!

Hey everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm back and so excited about what this New Year has to unfold. I'm not saying that these last few months haven't been crazy and stressful and a struggle, but I know God's at work and trusting He will do a good work in me. As you can see I have a New Name for my blog...hope you like it! I will be visiting your blogs in the coming week to catch up and posting hopefully some really good posts!

Love you all!!!
