Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder...RIGHT?!

It's amazing what God has to do to get my attention sometimes. This particular upper respiratory infection, and ASTHMA...yes folks, I have asthma! The sad thing is that I've undoubtedly had it for quite some time, be honest, at least a couple of years, I just haven't had time to go to the doctor. Until this week.

It was B.A.D! I've never felt so coughs literally shook my entire body, my lungs rattled in my chest ALL NIGHT.... By the time I saw the doctor on Friday, I was in pain just from coughing. Four prescriptions, almost $400 in visit fees and meds, and I really do feel so much better. With these meds, come recovery, and that is where God met me!

During this time of 'rest' if you will, I've become so hungry for the word of God. I need Him to make my life complete, and for the past few months, I've been neglecting that relationship...and it was time to stop. I do believe He tried less drastic ways to get my attention, but I can be hard-headed, so He needed to pull out the big guns.

I don't know why I can't be still. I don't know why having nothing to do on my calendar irks me, but it's become a place that I just can't function in anymore. I need to learn to embrace those times when I have nothing to do...because they really are few and far between my friends.

I know I've been MIA practically all summer, but this blog hasn't been far from my mind. It just seems that when I'm a little out of touch with God...I don't have much to write about. That's going to change...not that my little musings are what you've been missing in life...HA!

I am starting a little bible study with one of my dearest friends...(I've always wanted to type's the meds talking). It's called 'Ruth: Loss, Love, and Legacy' by Kelly Minter. I'm really excited about it because Ruth is one of my most favorite women in the Bible. I can't wait to dig into the word, and come out....well, changed?! With that said, I really don't know how to work through a bible study with just one other person...any suggestions? There are no leaders here, just two kindred spirits working to better their lives for the Lord. Honestly though...I really would appreciate any help on the dynamics of this!

I know it won't be long before I'm back again...I've missed writing so much! Until next time....lator gators!

Long Time No See...

I have not written in a while, but it's not because I don't have stuff to talk about. I guess I've been a little busy, and then when I haven't been so busy, I've enjoyed doing nothing...something that I don't get a chance to do often.

Let's see...what have you guys missed? Well, last week, my body went through a major workout shock. I hit the weights hard last week, and I paid for it in a major way. So much so that I couldn't perform my duties the last hurt so badly! It felt good though...even though it felt bad...does that even make sense?!

I've been a little off my normal schedule...I have minimal groceries...which is very unlike me...and I haven't been to church in a lot of weeks, I wince to type know, founder of a non-profit agency...skipping out on church, but it's/I'm missing something...and whatever that something desire for it is causing me to be at a, here I stand!

I think the problem is, I really don't know what I'm praying for around this church issue...maybe I'll know it when it happens!

My 4th of July was great! Dad and I cooked out on Saturday, and went shopping in Austin on Sunday! It was a great relaxing weekend.

Now, I'm home...hanging out on the sofa...should be in bed, because I've got an early morning appt with the gym, and then off to work for TAKS Remediation...go me! Oh yeah, and I really wish my iPhone 4 would hurry up and get here! I cannot wait...the anticipation is killing me.....I almost bought a case today, but my good sense kicked in..I mean, I don't even have the phone yet...but it should be soon!

I hope your holiday weekend was a blast! Have a great week peeps!
