Oh Camp how I love you.

Hello from camp. I absolutely love being here at camp. Services have been great every single night, however my favorite night was definately last night. Last night was a night of God tearing down walls in kids so that He can fill them up and love them and change their lives. I know that kids lives are never going to be the same. And that is the most beautiful thing in the world to me.

I love being here at camp, it is such a sanctuary. It is so much easier to focus and just be in His presence all the time. I feel great while I am here!! There is just such a difference here and I love it. But it really makes me understand that I have to push hard to stay and get in His presence while I am at home with life slinging things at me left and right.

I am thankful for this opportunity to get to be here this week like this. I know that it was a gift to me from God. I am so Thankful so very thankful!!

I had a second interview today at this great company with this great people. I want the job so bad. That interview went great. I have never had an interview that long and that was FUN, oh yes you heard me correctly I said the interview was FUN. God is so good, I really feel His hand in all of this. I will know if I got the job or not soon!!!

Well that is all I have time for, for now it is time to pray for tonight's service.

Busy Busy Week

Oh my has it been a busy busy week.

I am thoroughly exhuasted from it and next week is even busier but great cause it's KIDS CAMP time!!

Here's a little recap of my week:

Monday: At the church helping set up for the Graduation Banquet
Tuesday: I took a sweet lady to the Doctor downtown and watched American Idol with friends
Wednesday: Took myself to the doctor then went to church then watched the American Idol Finale with friends
Thursday: I had two interviews and then I picked my sweet Tater up from the vet and babied him and laundry
Friday: At the church to get ready for Kids Camp then another Doctors appointment and laundry
Saturday: Headed to church to pack up for camp, and headed to camp to set up and practice then home to hang out with Mr. Wonderful and his parents who will be in town for the weekend
Sunday: Breakfast with my family and the we are having a school's out movie party with the kids and I can't wait to get in the floor with them and hang out and watch a movie, then we are headed to camp for the week.

Hopefully I will get to spend the week at camp but it is possible that I will have a job to start next week. In that case I will spend the week learning a new job and getting accustomed to driving in traffic once again. I have not done that in nine years. I am of course on the fence as far as next week. I want so badly to just get to be at camp and work and minister, but at the same time I really need a job and need the peace that comes with having a job once again.

I know that whatever next week holds is up to my Heavenly Father and I know that He knows best.

I am thankful that I will at least get Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at camp for sure and I can not wait to pour myself into Children's Ministry. That is my heart.

Shameless Plug: God has shared with me the most amazing man and I am SO Blessed. I can't believe how blessed I am. It truly shocks me on a regular basis. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with this man. Thank You Father.

I know my posts have been sporatic lately...and my readers have all but gone. Hope you will all tune back in on occasion.

Randoms to catch up

I have been out of the blog loop lately and so I wanted to make blogging a priority are some randoms to catch up...

I have had a bit of a rough time since losing my job but I feel like I am starting to bounce back lately!! Yay!!

Mr. Wonderful and I have gotten to spend alot of time helping at the church lately and that has really been fun and a helpful way to keep us busy and keep our spirits up.

I sure am loving the beautiful sunshine lately!!

We had a really cool family reunion this last weekend and it was really fun meeting family and catching up.

It looks like I will get to be a part of kids camp like never before since I do not have a job. I have mixed emotions about this. 1) I am super excited as I have never gotten to stay at camp during the day with the team and hang out and practice. 2) It's a little hard enjoying things knowing I really need to have a job and be working. Time is running out. 3) I know God is in control and if I need to be a camp like this I will if not I will get a job before hand. It is ALL in His hands and I am going to stand there with peace and acceptance knowing that He knows best!!!

My cat Tater had his front claws removed today and I stopped by to visit him after his surgery and it just melted my little heart. I wanted to pick him up and cuddle him and take him home with me, but I couldn't. He was doing good though and the lady was really sweet to him and was loving on him too. I am going to miss having him home with me these next few nights though. I can't wait to have him home again!!

I am loving my new lap top and loving the feeling of being able to have my own space now. I have never had that, I have always used a work computer. This one is mine and that feels really good.

I gave platelets for the first time ever last week and it was quite the experience. Now I am an avid blood donor. I absolutely LOVE to donate blood. It is something that I have that others need desperately and it is free for me to give. So I love it with all my heart. I have not been able to donate in a year since I got to go to Thailand last year. So I was really excited to get back in the grove. When Mr. Wonderful took me to the blood bank last week I asked the lady there about donating plazma and platelets and which they needed more of the three. It was interesting to find out that they needed platelets more. Here is why...They give platelets to cancer patients and patients who have blood clotting issues. Platelets only have a shelf life of 5 days. Blood has a shelf life of about 28 days I believe. So Mr. Wonderful and I decided that since they needed platelets more and we had the time that we would donate those instead of just blood. It wasn't so bad except for the ugly bruise on my arm. It was long, Mr. Wonderful's took 85 minutes and mine took 65 minutes. They only had one machine so we had to wait on each other. I am thankful to have been able to donate something they have such need of. I hope to be albe to do it again soon. If you are able please donate blood, it is a necessitly of life and there are people who literally will not survive if we do not donate!!!

Ok lovely blog readers, that is all for now. I hope to be around more. I hope to get all caught up in blog land soon!!

Until next time...God Bless!!! God is so good and His blessings are INCREDIBLE!!

The Beach.

Oh my my!

I forgot how much I love the beach!

I feel so much Love and Peace here.

It's so beautiful and peaceful.

I can't help but feel close to my Heavenly Father here.

I can't help but hear His voice here!

I love the sound of the waves, the wind, the moon on the water, the beauty, and the love and peace that my Heavenly Father washes over me here.

I sat out on the balcony tonight after sitting out on the beach under the moonlight taking in the incredible beauty and all I could say to my Father was...THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU...Thank You Father for this trip to the beach, Thank You Father for the beauty that is here, Thank You Father for the Peace and Love that I feel, Thank You Father. Thank You.

The Beach. Ah the Beach. I love the Beach. I am so thankful to be here. I can't wait to get back out there tomorrow. I will be sad to leave it behind too, but I am thankful to have gotten to come.

Again Thank You Father!!

No I haven't gone missin...

Hello Blog Friends!!
I haven't gone missing, I just took a much needed get away trip.

Mr. Wonderful and I went to visit a friend in Tallahassee and then to visit his family in Mobile.

We had a wonderful relaxing time. We needed the break to just clear our minds and de-stress for a bit.

I feel refreshed and renewed.
