Talks with Mom … and … STAYING IN PAJAMAS ALL DAY
After suffering through mono last Thanksgiving, I was really disappointed because I thought I would still be in Puerto Rico at this time. However, God brought me safely home to my family this year, and for that, I am eternally grateful. I’m also very happy I’ll be able to eat Thanksgiving dinner this year.
God bless all of you, and have a wonderful holiday weekend!
God is so good! I celebrate what He has given me!
If you’re feeling like living on the edge during a meal, eat spaghetti in a white shirt/sweater. I got that idea from my cousin and tried it the other day. Man, did I feel daring! Kind of like this little guy…
Yes, believe it or not, Craig had his very first haircut done by someone other than his dad the other day. Read the rest of this entry »
This week, Craig and I have been thinking about God and trusting in Him completely. As some of you may know, I am back home now. A lot of new things have come my way since being home. It has been quite the ride! I’m just so thankful I know such a great God who has been looking out for me the whole time.
Recently, Craig left his job in search of something new. I’m so proud of him, and I’m really happy he’s learning to trust in God and wait for a new opportunity. He is taking the first steps by filling out applications, but he’s letting God lead, waiting to hear what He has to say and feeling that check in his spirit about all that comes around.
Craig and I came up with an idea I really love. Each time we feel overwhelmed, stressed, concerned, or even if we feel fine, we think to ourselves, what does trusting God look like today? I like to wake up every morning and think just that…what does trusting God look like today? Read the rest of this entry »
I laughed pretty hard when I saw this picture on Pinterest earlier. It’s getting closer and closer to Thanksgiving with every day! If I was a turkey, I think I would have tried to hide starting a while ago.
My life has taken some pretty drastic turns this last month. I got a great job, gained some unexpected surprises in the form of money (which is great for school purposes!), started to adjust to life off of campus (as I have to wait till winter to start classes again), and I now may be changing my minor to multimedia communication at UWEC.
Life this fall has been much different from what I’m used to, but I’m enjoying it and trying to make the most of it. Great opportunities have been coming my way, so I’ve taken advantage of all I can. Read the rest of this entry »
The other day I greatly enjoyed watching The Emperor’s New Groove. It’s such a classic from when I was younger. Every time I watch it, I laugh so hard when Kronk is trying to decide whether or not to save the emperor when he’s in a bag about to fall to his death over a giant waterfall. Kronk is trying to listen to both his shoulder angel and also the devil on the other side. Ultimately, he chooses to save the emperor, but I laugh when the devil on his shoulder gives the three reasons why Kronk should listen to him. One of the devil’s reasons is because he can do a hand stand. He says to Kronk, “Reason number two, look what I can do.” After that, he proudly shows off his handstand abilities.
I thought, hey, the next time I have to persuade someone, I should do a fancy trick. After all, there’s nothing more convincing than that. Guess I better start practicing!
I know it must seem strange as I wasn’t expected back until December, but things became very dangerous very fast. I was trying to think of how to write about my experience, but at the moment, I don’t have the words I need to express what is in my heart. Read the rest of this entry »
I think this is pretty funny although I think there are a lot of people who are figuring out what to do with computers these days.
