Today was the first day of car pooling
Today I got up on time and did not run late
Today I had a friend bring me breakfast
Today I thought about my struggle
Today I have dark nails
Today I have gotten alot done
Today I feel the presence of God
Today I have prayed for friends
Today I wore accessories for the first time in forever
Today I spoke before being spoken to
Today I was scared by a co-worker
Today I choose Jesus
Today I am not hopeless
Today I keep fighting
Today is yours and I will not be moved. Father today I choose you and your will. Lord I love you with all my heart and I am reaching up to you with all my might. Today Father I thank You for Your presence and I thank You for loving me. Today I thank you for being with my family and friends in all life's struggles. Father forgive me for all my sins and my wrongs. I seek you and to be like you. Take the rest of this day Father and have your way. In Jesus name I pray.

Wow this one flew buy. We were busy all weekend.
Friday night was fun...Mr. Wonderful, my brother, and our friends Carrie & Boo all came over. Mr. Wonderful grilled - pork chops, Hamburgers, and Conecha Sausage and made french fries. We ate like a yummy end of the summer feast. Then we played Phase Ten while watching TV. We had a good time!
Saturday we took the youth to Six Flags. We had a great time riding roller coasters and hanging out. The weather was perfect and the lines were not too bad at all. I did get sickly and didn't ride any of the rides twice like I wanted. Phewy! Next time I will take medicine and hopefully that will help!!
Sunday I was very sickly...but the day was good. Full of wonderful practices and sweet kids!! Some nice healing at the end of the day!!! God is SO good!!

Oh yes...It IS Silly Day!!
I have not been successful at being serious today so why not just deem it Silly Day!!
On Silly Day you get to be as silly as you want ALL Day.
Or for those of you who are not a five year old trapped in a twenty-seven year old's body like me the challenge is to be silly at least once today!!
So far today...
* I have made shadow animals in the projector light in a company meeting
* Laughed uncontrollably in that same meeting
* Shared my favorite laffy taffy joke...I just dont get why others don't think its as funny as I do...sheesh(yes I am about to share it with you)
What do you call a cow with a twitch?...........
(oh yes I am laughing uncontrollably again!!!)
* Pretended my notebook was a catalog of my handwriting and displayed it for all of the other customer service girls to see (this after our boss asked if we had our catalogs, which we were all supposed to bring and noone did -- I didn't lie I just made my notebook into A catalog -- okay some of the ladies did think it was funny -- maybe even the boss)
* Danced like an idiot in the hallway for several to witness
* Laughed some more
Let the silliness continue. It is Friday and the Fall weather is so refreshing. And I am feeling better about myself than I have in two weeks. Junior Bible Quiz starts tomorrow. My family is coming over for dinner tonight...CHILI...yes I have FALL FEVER!!!
Ok so I was Goggling silly day to get some images for this post when I totaly just found this...And yes Silliness is absolutely a Ministry!!!!
Remember too that This is the Day the Lord has made...Let's rejoice and be glad in it...we all have something to be thankful for even in the midst of storms and battles and struggles...let's find something to rejoice over today and invite a bit of silliness and joy into our day...ITS SILLY DAY!!! ITS SILLY DAY!!!
God is good all the time and At all times!

You could get rich off me today this way. Gggrrrr. Well not so much, I don't have the $10.00 to pay you. Ha!
So my goal today is to be quiet as much as possible. And get less grumpy of course!
Father, take me today and take this whole day. It is yours. I love you. In Jesus name. Amen.

I am in another large struggle.
I am feeling down alot, so I apologize in advance for all the gloom here.
This too will pass.
I am struggling in all areas in my life right now. It is simply because I am struggling with me.
I am clinging to the Lord with all my might. I am trying to saturate myself in His Word and His Presence as much as I can. Honestly it is hard because I feel so unmotivated anyway. But I am making time to read the Word and just be in the Father's presence.
There are some things that I just do not understand. How can you be so close to the Father and certain things still be a part of you? I am confused, scared, so disappointed & heart broken.
Anyway that's where I am. It's not all Doom & Gloom.
I know feelings lie, so therefore I know this is not hopeless, even when it feels that way. I know that God is faithful and will see me through this, even when I just can't see how things will get better or how things will change. I know my enemy is a liar and he wants to get me down and keep me down. I know my God has already defeated my enemy and that he has no power over me and that he WILL NOT WIN. I know that my life belong's to my Heavenly Father and I will do what it takes to be victorious and God will get the Glory for it!!
Romans 8:28 "And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to hs purpose."
I certainly LOVE my Lord and seek His will. I surrender my life and all of this struggle to HIM! I know I am called and He will work all this out for the Good and He will use this to touch many. I am His. I want simplicity, truth, and to be who He created me to be in EVERY way.
Father, today I surrender this all to you. All of my feelings, thoughts, struggles, fears & anxieties. I surrender completely to You. Have YOUR way in me oh Lord. Help me to see things and myself as you do, help me to see truth. Be my shield, my refuge and my fortress today. I choose to believe you and let go of the fears and lies my enemy is heaping on me. I love you Father God with all of my heart and I belong only to You. I will not be moved. I will not let the enemy win. Get thee behind me satan in the Mighty Name of JESUS. I belong to Jesus and I choose Jesus and I choose to fight and not give up. I choose to allow him to make me victorious. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

14-16 "If you'll hold on to me for dear life," says God, "I'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times; I'll rescue you, then throw you a party. I'll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!"

Remembering Nine Eleven
REMEMBERING NINE ELEVEN
ON THIS FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY
OF THE DAY WE STOOD IN FEAR
WE NEED NOT BE REMINDED
TODAY REMEMBER DEAR
WHEN THE WORDS NINE ELEVEN
ARE HEARD SAID ALOUD
OUR MIND IMMEDIATELY RETURNS
AND SEES THE DUSTY CROWD
FOR THIS GENERATION HAS NO OTHER
SUCH AS THIS TO RECALL
THIS ONE DAY IS THE MEMEORY
THAT STANDS ABOVE THEM ALL
WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER
EXACTLY WHERE WE WERE
THE VERY FIRST FEELING
THE MOMENT THAT WE HEARD
THE IMAGES ARE SEARD
UPON OUR HEARTS AND MINDS
NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN
THIS DAY IN HISTORYS TIME
ITS IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE ASK
DO YOU REMEMBER WHERE YOU WERE
WE AUTOMATICALLY RECALL
WITHOUT SAYING A WORD
On September 11, 2001...
I was at work when the realization of what happened hit...I cried and prayed all day for those who were there that day...God continue to strengthen this country and its leader...continue to give wisdom and protection to this country and its leaders...we need you Lord...9-11 reminded us how much we need YOU...I love you Father...In Jesus name...Amen.
I AM…needing some Jesus time!
I HAVE…the most incredible Heavenly Father.
I KEEP…thinking of my sweetie.
I WISH I COULD…fast forward a little.
I HATE…that there is strife right now.
I FEAR…some things that I just need to give over to Jesus.
I HEAR…office noises.
I DON’T THINK…I can save any money.
I REGRET…something I did.
I LOVE…My Jesus, My sweetie, My family, My friends, My church, & Ministry.
I AM NOT…perfect. I hate that.
I DANCE…like a goofball because it is fun.
I SING…for my Lord. I love it.
I NEVER…give up.
I RARELY…manage money well.
I CRY WHEN...not when. I cry ALL THE TIME. Sheesh.
I WATCH…a lot of reality TV.
I AM NOT ALWAYS…thoughtful like I should be.
I HATE THAT…I forget things like it do.
I’M CONFUSED ABOUT…some stuff, but I am giving it to God to figure out.
I NEED…My Jesus EVERYDAY.
I SHOULD…totally be working.
I HOPE...for complete change in a specific area.
But I am standing on the Word of God today. In the words of my favorite song "On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand."
Psalm 100:3 "Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep he tends."
Lord you are Good and I love you and I belong to you. In Jesus name. Amen.

I am thinking...I really need to go get in bed, I feel so bad, I am done.
In the office...there is far too much noise
I am thankful for...a Heavenly Father that love so completely and for my sweetie
From the kitchen...I do not want food…Buffalo Wild Wings has ruined my day
I am wearing...Black pants and a black and tan shirt.
I am reading...Orders and Blogs
I am hoping...to get a nap and a quick shower before church tonight
I am creating...a bit of a whiny attitude
I am hearing...the girls say how bad Buffalo Wild Wings was for them today too
Around the house...there are lots of things that need to be done
One of my favorite things...my journal
A few plans for the rest of the week...Tonight Youth, Thurs. Relax at home alone, Friday work on Counseling paperwork with Neesie, Saturday meeting on Counseling stuff for Neesie, then to the lake, Sat night hanging with my sweetie, Sunday Church & All day drama practice
You are Wonderful and Stressful and full of demands. May I be able to catch up and catch my breath soon.
Oh Life. Oh Life.
You never stop, so neither shall I.
Greater is HE that is in me.
What an INCREDIBLE Heavenly Father we have. Oh wow!! Having a relationship and I mean an active daily relationship with Jesus is absolutely THE best thing that has EVER happened to me.

Well unfortunately I am an adult...and I do not get that opportunity. Isn't it amazing how life can spin right out of control in the matter of a single breath.
Big Sigh here.
I feel slightly overwhelmed and it's only beginning. I have so much to take care of. And the one thing that I want and need most to make a priority slips through the cracks more than it should. I am an idiot in this area, I know better.
On a much brighter side...I have a good God and He will never leave me or forsake me...and He will never give me more than I can bear. Thank You Jesus.
Once again I give you my issues. I give them up to you completely. I let them go. I let you take care of it. I trust you, I trust the YOU in me. You will make it right, get me through, show me the way. I trust I trust I give I give. I receive I receive I receive I receive. In Jesus Name.
