i'm trying to decide if i can/should watch the passion of the Christ on thursday with the girls. hm, prayer is definitely in order here, and time management...what is it, 3hrs long?

i've been wanting to learn more & go deeper on the whole meaning of easter, better yet, resurrection day. i have some studying to do, and am trying to hear if this is something i could do in addition.

small group/bible study went really well today. thanks for all of your hard work sharee! ;) despite the small breakdown moment i had. lol i think i was just getting overwhelmed with things and just didn't know how to handle it the best. we will definitely do that game again.

it's been raining ALL day today, and super duper windy. but, i thank the Lord that i'm alive and that i have a safe&warm place to stay tonight.

oh yeah, and i almost ran into a wall & the post of a traffic sign..yay me.

God bless!

let's see. i've already completed the following: get some fresh air, laugh with a friend[and sister], be a blessing, get some exercise [does dancing around in the room in your comfy clothes count?!], eat something delicious, meditate on the Word, do something fun [snuggled with manders for a moment in time..], praise the Lord [i'm thankful to be alive!], let go of a grudge, change my thinking.

it's only 3:30pm on saturday. i definitely have time to do the rest on the list, and then SOME! i can take a walk, sing a song, accept a compliment, help somebody, be good to myself [hm, how about instead of saying that i 'need' a pedicure, i actually give myself one?], learn something new, and play!! i have also worked on some reading for homework, got some rest, listened to some groovy tunes... i'm on a roll!!! woo hoo!

the joy of the Lord is my strength.

today was a strange day...

a strange day indeed. good. but strange. i felt like i was gone for forever. let's see here, this is what i did today: left my house at 6:40 am, rode in the car for 2 hrs, arrived at school, went to work, then came back to my room and did hw bc my first class was cancelled, lunch, 2hr painting class (i'm starting my self portrait assignment--whoo hoo!), went to my second class of they day (which is usually my third), then went to cvs with my group members, my classmate's car keys got locked in the car, waited for aaa, had dinner at friendly's while waiting for aaa, came back to school, went online (fb, blogs, email, etc), had my "little sister" come over for a little bit, and then i had to unpack, do homework, talk to donald, read in the word, and then go to bed at a decent hour. whew! all the while, having the weather be cloudy and gloomy... hmph. what happened to the gorgeous weather from this weekend!!!

God is sooooo good. i really really don't know what my life would be like without him! *selah (which means 'think about that') on this for a bit:

"be somebody"

in a word, what i'm saying is, grow up. you're Kingdom subjects. now live like it. live out your God-created identity. live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you -matt5:48 MESSAGE

1. today i will live in the now! i will live in the now because i am fearfully and wonderfully made...i am His workmanship...i am the righteousness of God in Christ...i am the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath...i am bought with a price... i AM somebody!

2. today i will refuse to believe anything about myself that this is contrary to what God believes about me. i will not regard any word spoken about me that does not confirm what God says about me. i will agree with God and His will for my life, even if it seems illogical and impractical to do so.

3. today i will carry myself in a way that demonstrates my godly self-confidence. i will speak well of myself without bragging or being offensive to others. i will show that i believe in myself, without thinking more highly of myself than i ought to think. i will love my neighbor as i love myself today.

4. today i will not waste my time on unimportant and trivial things--the "beggarly elements of the world." i will forsake t he temptation to give in to silly pettiness and will pursue great ideas and noble thoughts. i will conduct my affairs with a flair fro grandeur and loftiness without becoming pretentious and out of touch with reality.

5. today i will feel neither superior nor inferior to anyone else.

6. today i will remember that i am who God says that i am...i have what God says that i have...and i can do what God says that i can do!

7. today i will walk like a winner and lose my loser mentality. i am a champion, a king, an overcomer. i have favor, creativity, confidence, the Mind of Christ, prosperity, success, supernatural ability, and uncommon favor. anything can happen today, and my expectation of faith will attract the positive to my life. if God is for me, who can be against me?! no matter what others have said to me or about me--no matter what i have said about myself--today is a new day of self-realization for me. today i AM SOMEBODY, and today i will live in the now!

Father, help me to remember today that you have enabled me to be somebody! in Jesus' name, amen.
may you ALL have the peace of God on you tonight as you sleep and the strength you need in the morning. i hope this is encouraging for you all!

when you put God first, everything will fall right into place. i'm expecting new and great things for tomorrow and this week! Thank You Lord!

spring break

anddddd... spring breaks starts.......... whenever my ride comes. lol which is very soon! i hope you all have a safe, productive, and wonderful week! :)

Thursday, March 4, 2010


i am soooo excited for spring break! not only to relax, but to get closer with God in prayer & reading as well as fellowshiping, relaxing, seeing friends, and doing lots of reading [both leisure and academic]!!! and it is supposed to be sunny for the majority of the week which means, i could probably go exploring sometime with my camera! [which i haven't done in a long time]

today was pretty busy, i've been on the go from one thing to another since this morning. but after tonight's mandatory guest speaker lecture-thing for one of my classes ending around nine, i should be able to finish some homework and go to bed early! after dinner, before the guest speaker lecture-thing, i'm going to work on my landscaping paintings!!! sooo excited, i'm really digging this assignment, especially because it's not the typical landscape view that i chose. i'll put up pictures on my picture blog eventually, i'm still trying to catch up with pictures from last semester.

i also got the nicholas sparks book, dear john, in the mail today! yay for mail!! :) looking forward to reading that over break as well. okie, i guess that's it for now, until next time, God Bless!!! xo

papyrus cards

legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday. the hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation. ~PAPYRUS

i saw this on a piece of paper on the back of a card that i bought for a friend. i thought i'd share it with you all!!!
