BIG NEWS!

Alright everyone... here's the BIG NEWS!!!

After much prayer, pondering and seeking counsel, Bryan and I have decided to rent our house out. When/if it rents, we will move in with my dad until we get all our debt paid off and a solid amount in savings. This is awesome but it will be hard!

If you'd like to, please pray for us.

House details: 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, 1400 square feet. Within walking distance of the University of Central Oklahoma, and the heart of downtown Edmond. If you are interested, let me know and I will give you more details!

July 4th, 2010

How we spent our day: Bryan, daddy and I visited Bridgeway Church this morning at 10:30am (their only service). It was a great church, we really enjoyed it. We're going back next Sunday and it just may become our new home church.

After that, daddy treated Bryan and I to brunch at Mimi's Cafe. mmmm!

Then Bry and I went home and relaxed together, cleaned the house a bit, and waited for dad, Mel, and Judy to arrive at 5:30!

Bry and Mel cooked us t-bone steaks and Judy brought over homemade potato salad. We also had brown sugar and maple cured beans, grilled corn, watermelon, and cantaloupe. mmm-mmm!

After we cleaned up dinner, we played Apples to Apples! It was everyone but Mel's first time to play (she's played with her friends every day for the past 5 days!). Dad won the first round, I won the second, and it was such a blast! I could play that game aaaaaaaall night!

Then we got on our way to the fireworks show at UCO. It's really fun that Bryan and I live only a short walking distance away. We packed a tarp to sit on and brought umbrellas just in case it started to rain again. Well! The show was great, but between the humidity and lack of a breeze, it was the least enjoyable show to watch that any of us had experienced! We got showered in ashes the entire time so we opened our umbrellas just to shield ourselves! People kept getting ash in their eyes! And the smoke was so thick in the sky, that especially during the finale, you couldn't even see the fireworks! But, nevertheless, it was still fun!

Today we celebrated our thankfulness for FREEDOM; in our great nation and in CHRIST!




Zitties Day 13



Not gonna lie ya'll, been having trouble lately. Just zitty after zitty popping up on my chin. Once one is almost healed another one or two show up. It's not fun. Maybe I really should start praying for healing. Some may think that's a ridiculous thing to pray for healing over, but God cares. I believe that.

Zitties Day 12 (skipped day 11)



The best part about all of this is I'm learning how to feel pretty despite break outs. Who cares if you've got a red zit on your face? Who cares if you have 20? People who love you see your eyes, your heart, your soul - and think you're beautiful anyway.

And with her permission, I am posting it, because I think it's beautiful.

when you come
and say its soon
i care not
if there be trumpeters
clouds to sway you down
angels dancing all around
spare me that cosmic folklore
just say
i wont be anxious anymore.
and when we go
(i can be ready tomorrow)
i have no use
for a mansion with many views
a house with infinite rooms
opal gates and crystal streets
save those treasures for the poor
as for me?
i just dont wanna be anxious no more.
i would sit at your feet
be it rocking chair or throne
i would bow my head
for halos or thorns
heaven or scorn
i'm along for the ride
not for the claim of some jeweled countryside
but for that promise of peace
you bought with your blood and all your pride
and that big gash in your side
dont buy me fancy things
your finest gift
your most vivid colors
are splashed across history
and dripping in the baptistery
and crawling along every horizon at dawn
there's no need to bribe or pawn
i'm sold and bought and won
just take these worries off my heart
my mind is soaked in troubles
my lord
sometimes
i'm simply terrified
of nothing
and what nothing means
and what anything is for
just say
i wont be anxious anymore
just swear
we wont have to care
up there

Zitties Day 10
