Awesome Day!

God is so good! If you would have told me I was going to have a day with the group of friends I was with today, last year.. I would have said you were crazy! I had the perfect day! God did amazing things this year in all of us. We can once again be a solid group! If any of you read this, know that I love you and I pray for you and I thank God for you!

Great week with great friends!

So.. this week, we went back to Monroeville A/G. Rich spoke in big church, lol. Hey you do youth ministry for 20 years and see what you call it when you speak to adults:) Any way, it was great to see old friends (not to say they are old). After service we got to spend time with the Lecocqs. It was awesome. I need my Lorie time, lol! Friday night we went to dinner with the Jenkins. Always alot of fun. If you know Debbie and I you no there were laughs. Tonight we went out with the Uries. We took the motorcycles down to Robinson Town Center. It was so beautiful out tonight. Riding the bike was fun, relaxing and "carefree." I have been pretty stressed lately so it was nice to just ride! Thanks to all of my good friends! I miss ya!

Ever feel like you have no time, no energy and no money? What does that usually do to you? It probably makes you feel like you have no hope. Now, we all know our hope comes from God... so therefore why do I and so many others allow ourselves to feel down? Probably because too often we as human beings rely on feelings not facts. That is where my state of mind is today. I know the facts but I feel frustrated and stressed. I know what I am supposed to want and do but I just want to sit here and do nothing. So, then the feelings move on to guilt for not doing more and spending more time with those people or things that I feel like I neglect. The things become overwhelming. It poses these questions: 1) How can I get it all done? 2) Does it matter; it will only need done again almost immediately? 3) Does what I do matter? 4) What is really important? 5) Is it ever going to end (financial stress, etc)? Okay, I am just being real today.. but that is no way to write a blog, I guess! It is time to stop the pity party:)
I know and must believe that my hope comes from the Lord and he loves me and all of the "little things" in my life. I also know that faith comes from believing; so thats what we must do!
