I love my church! My home church is simply amazing...I miss it when I am in Waco, and really don't know what I am going to do when I leave the Central Texas area. (That's been on my prayer list...finding a church home) So, this weekend, I went to the 8 o'clock service with my Dad, and the sermon was RIGHT ON TIME....!!! Have you ever heard a word, and didn't even know it was what you needed at the time? That is how I feel each time I leave CHOP!!! I remember when I was younger, not having a clue what Bishop was talking about, but now that I'm older, I get it, and each sermon makes me grow....
If you know me at all, you know I LOVE to read. Being an English teacher, and a grad student, it's really hard to find the time to read for pleasure, but somehow I fit it in. I bought a couple of books this weekend that I can't wait to read. I thought I'd share them with you:
I love hearing from God. It affirms that my dreams and hopes are not something I want to do for myself, but things that He really wants me to do for His glory...
I love rainy days as long as I can sit on the couch and watch TV or read, and not have to go anywhere.
I love journaling, it's my main way of releasing.
I love Moscato wine....especially the kind in the black bottle...thanks Danni!!!
I LOVE my IPOD....I love that I can listen to my favorite songs, and that it is like a little extension of me. I especially love the new docking station I got for Christmas...thanks Mom!! You know what they say....music moves the souuuuuullllllllllllll!!!!
That's all for now! Thanks for reading!

Tonight, I will celebrate with some of my closest sisters, and we'll stop to reflect and remember all that our founders meant for us to accomplish in the name of AKA. We'll come together to encourage one another, support one another, and hold one another accountable for the charge we were given 100 years ago!
I will post pictures from tonight's festivities later! Until then.....

This entry will pretty much be all over the place. I started it a few days ago, and am just getting around to finishing it.
Most of you know that I am seriously considering buying my first home. I had been thinking about it before, but the moment of truth came when my Dad, said to me over Thanksgiving, "you know, if you're waiting to get married before you buy a home, you might want to go ahead and consider it..." THANKS DAD!! I mean, of course in the back of my mind I thought I would have a home, and a husband by now, but anywho....another day, another post...
So, back to the home issue--I've been working with a company, and prayerfully by the end of the summer, I will be a homeowner!!! I'm so excited...as you all know I love to decorate and have get togethers. The lesson in all of this is, don't stop living the life you have, because you're waiting for the life you want....
I also received my first grades on a paper, and a journal that was due this week, and I made 100's on both. Now, you have to understand that this teacher ripped my discussion post to shreds, so I was very apprehensive about completing these assignments. I literally prayed the entire way through it. God is faithful.....
