When God blesses, you don't argue

Maybe you don't think you deserve it. Maybe you think he's crazy and this awesomeness should be given to someone else, but you don't argue. I mean, I'm not sure I deserve this. I really am not sure. But dude, I am going to take it, enjoy it, and well... Run with it.

Spending time with someone you care about is really fun. Makes me laugh. Makes me smile. Makes me happy.

God is really faithful when one is obedient.

Life is crazy. And beautiful.

I am a giddy little girl. It's so good to get a hug from someone that thinks you're cute.

Who am I?!


Ten of them?

You bet. And they're all for you Chad and Crit. I missed you guys! Hee hee.

What goes around comes... Eck. Whatev.

Still haven't been able to catch my manager, but I did get to talk to my store manager. I'll get the chance hopefully soon. But I don't know how to explain to people sometimes that I am frustrated with how they handle things. I don't know. It's complicated. And yet simple too.

My friends and I are watching the movie "The Queen" and I have to say that I love British culture. I remember when Princes Di was killed and I remember how wierd it was. The movie is just intense here right now because the royal family just got the news in the movie.

I got the job at the preschool but I am still praying about whether to take it full time and pass on the massive hours at the coffee shop. Or to do both part time or what the deal is. I am just still not sure.

Becca and I are still sharing a car. Pray that we can find another one soon. We also need some more roommates. One or two if need be. Cause the condo we are renting has two bedrooms and we moved in after having two roommates back out on us in three days. We both really felt and so did our friends who are renting it to us, that this was to be our place and that God would provide for us. Funny how much God has me going on faith right now. My whole freaking life is that way. I can't think of one aspect of my life that is concrete. Just funny.

I guess my age is concrete.

Faith. It keeps getting a whole new meaning for me as life goes on.

Today in Colorado

Being a grown up sucks sometimes because you have to have grown up conversations about feelings. And sometimes my feelings get hurt and I just have to own up and talk to the person that hurt me. It's not easy, but welcome to the game of life. If only I could catch my manager at work to tell her how my feelings got hurt and why what she said made me a little upset to say the least. I just want to talk to her about it. And I hope she receives it well. And I hope that my words are spoken with wisdom and love. Pray for me about that? Thanks.

Um, I have a job interview tomorrow to do a pre-school summer camp at a church about 25-30 mins away from here. I met the lady who runs the place the other day and she really wants to hire me. The board of directors wants to interview me tomorrow. So... Yay!

Ch ch ch ch changin'

So, I am getting settled in Colorado. It is kind of crazy, but Becca and I found a place to rent with a friend of hers, but once we read the lease it seems off. So, we are going to meet with the landlords tonight and see what they think about the issues we have. It's not really a big deal. But luckily where we live now is cool. The wife of the family that owns the house where we are staying is a lawyer. She actually worked for John Ashcroft back in the day when he was working toward the presdiency. I was actually impressed with that, and she and I have talked politics quite a few times. I am pretty excited to see what God does with this lease thing. If all else fails, we can totally rent an apartment or something.

Uh, in other news, I am really excited that God is faithful. I have been talking to a guy friend from Ohio. We both really like each other, and things have been really great since I moved out here. We were both really scared when I was back in Ohio and acted like goofy little wussies. It was wierd, but now we are both really opening up and getting to know each other better. He asked me to come meet his family at his grandparents 50th wedding anniversary party and then he is driving out here to hang out for a mountain vaca. And I am so excited to see him face to face after we have talked so much about what we both want out of life. And I think this relationship is really good. We have both been praying for each other and I think that God is showing me much about what has been messed up about my interactions with men in the past. No. I know it. And the funny thing is we have been talking about how we've been hurt in the past and the decisions we've made and all that. I have no idea what will happen and no idea what we will do if things get really serious. But, hey, I think he's worth the risk. He's fun. We laugh a lot. He makes me want to get my crap together and let God run my life more. Not saying that is easy, but hey... Sometimes, you just gotta roll with things.
