Wah lah(o:

I have been having an amazinggg time on the road with Tori. Driving is a lot of what we do. lol(o: Sleep isn't something we get. It's been awesome so far. Howeverrr, yesterday my phone was stolennn, which is quite the bummer. Lots of contacts are gone, some probably foreverrr... it's pretty sad. On a lighter noteee, hopefully be getting a brand new phone next week. Exciting stuff. Think I'm getting the new samsung touch.
I know that there's a lottt of problems going on in soooo many friends lives personal, public, they are everywhere. The desperate need for prayer is rising.
I've really been trying to take this time with Tori away from everyone else to draw closer to my God. To pray and strive to act as a daughter of the Highest. I have a hard time getting down the basics of my Christian life.
The area's I've really been praying hard about are having my daily devotions... DAILY. And not just if I can get it in, but to be faithful to it.
Prayerrr is another big one for me. I know I do not pray near as much as I ought.
Musiccc. Music is a terrible thing that continually draws me farther and farther away. Takes my mind off of the Spirit and places it on the flesh. What I want, need, etc. It's a struggle. It's a daily fight.
HUMBLENESS is a huge one... I seriously wonder why I have a problem with this one. What do I have to be proud of? A little success God blesses me with and I fall apart spiritually. It really is messed up.
Sooo I'd like to encourage you to pray for me, as I do for you. Put God first. Humble yourselves, get on your knees and pray to our King.
"If my people..." it's our choice. It's our decision to recklessly abandon everything we know and run to Christ only to please Him, and no one else. It's amazing how God works everything to good for those that LOVE... Him. Love constrains us... love... true love... will accomplish miracles.

Ripping up the newspaper to read my bible =]

Yesterday... I was getting rather frusterated at the economical and political standpoint of our country. I know, who isn't? I was just thinking about it, and the more I did the madder I got.
It all started with a commercial. Obama persuading fellow Americans to give to their local foodbanks. Which is fine... But taking into consideration that he is trying to hand out free health care, free food, etc... Who's going to have the initiave to work anymore? It's like a classroom grade. The first time the teacher hands out B's... everyone is happy. Sure, the A students are a little upset, but everyone else is fine. The competition or the incentive to get an "A" dwindle's. The students don't study quite as hard anymore. The "D" students don't see the need to study at all.... and the "C" and "B" students are expecting the "A" students to carry their weight. Eventually the teacher is handing out "D"'s to everyone.
No more more steak Americans, but don't worry, everyone will get beans. =}
Sooo,,, how exactly is this "hope" and "change" working again???
On a lighter noteee(o:
I read this today.... (:
1. Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
2. As [when] the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, [that] the nations may tremble at thy presence!
3. When thou didst terrible things [which] we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
4. For since the beginning of the world [men] have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, [what] he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
5. Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, [those that] remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
6. But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
7. And [there is] none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.
8. But now, O Lord, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand.
ISAIAH 64:1-8

I miss my friends, mannnnnn. =[

They lefttt me... And I miss them a whole bunch. Enough to get on blogger and post about how sad I am that they aren't here anymore. I bet it's just knowing that their gone that's really getting to me and not that I just haven't seen them for 3 days. =/ *sniff*sniff* It's still rather depressing, however.

Tori's post dint help either. lol(o: Not that I dint enjoy reading it... it just made me miss her. 6 weeks should flyyy though, right? I can wait, but it'll take a wholeee lot of effort. lol(o: It'll also give me the chance to finish my school and classes will be over...
and to Chena Lakes we will go! =]


"My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD..."

Lamentations 3:20-27

That was a fun night... (o:

(still pretty at, hummm, 1 am??)

Love and miss you both a bunches(o:

I kinda like my job, too.

I'm doing a presentation on CAT equipment and the N C Dealership in Alaska... and I can't find much to post about... lol So here's another picture!

I love my baby sister by the way... =]

Today, was just grand(o:

Just for you girls(:

Hellooo. Nothing new. Life is pretty grand. =]

Can't wait for the semester to be over... and summertime to be here =P

SO Lanae'... I believe you are being QUITE hypocritical missay. And as sisters in the Lord we are to ADMONISH them. Haha. You post. Today. RIGHT THIS INSTANT. Or Emily is going on STRIKE. Yep, that's right. You think my posting is bad now. WELL. IT'S about to get worse. Dum, dum, dummm! Lol(o: I really do miss you.

Life is rolling ... rather quickly on by. Things are quite a bit different from last semester. Working more... I have Algebra 2, Chemistry, and Ak history at home. Taking the public communications class at TVC with Shannon and Rachel and friend from Hutch. It's going granddd. Way better than I expected. Actually having a lot of fun with the class. (:

Last Wednesday, I got in a "cooking mood" and told Mom not to make anything and that I woulld take care of dinner. She gladddly accepted my offer. I called my Dad and informed him he needed to arrive home on time and was not to eat anythinggg. LOL. He took that kind of funny, and was awkwardly wondering why his daughter had suddenly become so very concerned. However, I did not let him ask any questions and hung up the phone. =]

He arrived promptly on time and came through the kitchen rather slowlyyy. Felt my head for a fever and asked if I was feeling okay... I simply replied "DAD, I'm in a cooking mood." lol =]

Sooo, cheesy brocolli, spicy rice, creamy mashed potatoes sprinkled with cheese, and fried curry chicken strips was what came off the stove. And if I do say so myself it was quite yummy. I saved Brian a plate because I heard him complaining to my mom the other day about never getting any of the good home cooked meals anymore working those 10 hour shifts and coming home late. I saved him a plate with a longgg drawn out note explaining that I his lovely sister had made him a homecooked meal and specially and especially saved it specifically for him. =] =] =] hehehe... it was funny.

I recieved a text just a couple hours ago actually saying "Your 'homade' food is awesome! Thank you" lol

Brownie points for Emily!! Yay!!!

Not reallyyy actually. I think I should be making dinner a lotmore often and definatly should be helping out my mom more. I just get so bogged down with school sometimes, it's hard to focas on anything else. Hopefullyyy I'm going to try to make dinner every Wednesday night... its the best night I have to make it. With all fingers crossed, I'll stick to it.

Brian thinks its a great idea. Even offered me suggestions if I was ever wondering what to make. What a kid.

I miss Tori. Last week I texted her and kind of broke down, but she really helped and encouraged me. She's been sending me these devotions by email that are soooo good and soooo encouraging. Satan likes to make us feel like we are all alone in this. But we never are. =] Our sisters and brothers have our backs. It's good to know.

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. I think I better gooo. Mom and Jen are getting their hair done by Ang here at her house right now. I'm actually on her lap top for that matter. (: They're looking QUITE funny with their foil if I do say so myself... hahah... =]

Hope everyone is doing WONDERFUL and if not... I'm here. Gimmie a call. (:

The Start of A New Year...

Yesterday night at evening services, Pastor Ray said that he wanted to do something a little bit different that night. He said that he wanted for everyone to pick a verse or find a song to sing. At first it sounded okay,,, but I had no idea how much it would mean to our church. It's amazing how God can bring revival... even when you aren't expecting it. It was truly an awesome way to start off the new year... I wish I could decribe it... but it was just too special. Things like that are seldom and sweet. I ended up getting wrapped up in lots of specials, because Shannon wanted someone to sing with her, and Michelle didn't want to sing a solo either. Plus, my Dad wanted the whole family to sing together, and Jen wanted to sing one with all us kiddos. =] Then I had verse that I really felt like I should read too... especially after my Aunt Annette and Aunt Cindy both talked about witnessing to people and then getting discouraged when we can't see them get saved. God's perfect timing is what matters, we just have to be patient enough to wait, and faithful enough to consistantly pray for them.

"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted."

Anywaysss... =] It's good not to be sick anymore. Thankfully I recovered rather quickly. I reallyyyyyyyyyyy don't like being sick. It's pretty much the worst. lol(:
