This is MY MoMeNt....

I love the movie Annie.  I grew up watching the old version at least once a night.  I was obsessed.  I know every line....every song....every gesture....that is my MOVIE!

So....imagine my pure joy when it was announced that the movie Annie would be remade into a more modern version.  I had no shame singing my heart out with the other kids movie goers.  It was amazing!!!!  But, that's not really why I'm telling you this.

Tonight, whilst (I just love saying that) I was working on some stuff for PDG, I heard a small voice say that 'this IS my moment.'  All of the things on my to do list, the "I'll feel better whens...," the "when this happens, I'll be able to do this or that..."  NONE of that equates to the moment I am in right now!  Isn't it neat how you can have something dropped in your spirit right in the middle of the most mundane tasks?!?

Sure, my moments will come and go.  They will change and evolve, but nothing compares to the time I have been entrusted with right now!

I am notorious for looking towards the next moment.  My organization skills are maddening....everything must be written down.  I live and breathe by the lists that I make.  I do not like surprises, and while I'm not unbending, I try to have as much planned as I can...because I WILL forget.  The downside is that I am always looking towards the next thing.  The next moment....and sometimes, I forget to enjoy and experience the moment that I am in right now!

So.....when I heard that small voice tonight, I was reminded of the scripture that says do not worry about tomorrow, for it will take care of itself....then....I burst into song!  Yep, I sure did!  Because that's how I roll!

And if you too would like to have a singalong, click on the video below!  I promise you it won't disappoint!  This, friends is our's the opportunity we've been given right now to do something with...

FiFtEeN Things in 2015!!

I have thought about writing so many times.....even opened the app, and attempted to start a new post....

But the thing is.....I have so much to say, yet nothing flows!  So.....what's a girl to do??

I am really good at making, that's what I'll do.....I'll make a bucket list for 2015!  And I hope, one day can stop here with your cup of coffee....kick up your feet, and stay a while...but in the meantime...

15 Things I Want to do in 2015: (in no particular order)

1.  Make it through an entire Pandora rotation without skipping songs.

2.  Cook 10 different recipes from Pinterest....seriously, I have some awesome stuff pinned!

3.  Go on a trip by myself...and not pick up my phone!!!!

4.  Get over all of my 'its'....

5.  Find that waistline from 12th grade....(OK...maybe not that exact one....but come pretty close)

6.  Lie in a truck bed on a summer night, and chat it up with him (I will always be a hopeless romantic)

7.  Promote to Triple Diamond!

8.  Pay off the last of my consumer debt with the exception of my dang student loans!

9.  Be more present. Slow down. Live in the moment. Take it all in. Listen more!

10.  Go to Taste of Texas have I lived in Houston all this time, and haven't gone yet?!

11.  Get my gun license...

12.  Really try to see everyone the way God sees them....not just the ones I like, and not just the ones that don't get on my nerves...Love folks....afterall, it is what the world needs now...#cheeseball

13.  Be heart, open arms, just let Jesus do His thing in my life, and chill the heck out!

14.  Blog more!  And be real on the blog, (not that I'm ever fake), I just let the fact that folks are up to no good stop me from doing it more often and freely...but I can't control that now can I.....and folks out there need to hear what I have to say (or do they....over analyzing....this is ALL the time....and could probably be a blog post).

15.   Be a better Jarvis! And wear shorts! (I hate my thighs <<< add finding those HS thighs to #5 too!!)

I have loved this little activity....I'm going to print this list, and report back hopefully, having accomplished most or all of them!

Peace...all over the world.....seriously!  <><  ~J
