Sept. 29, 2009 ~powerful~

Y'all this song is powerful. I heard it on the radio driving down the road and literally got chill bumps and felt tears well up. I got on the phone and told my friend Barbara she HAD to listen to this song. I'm going to try to put the youtube thing in here so you can listen. If it doesn't work (cause I'm not computer savy) go to youtube and type in Mikeschair Let the waters Rise. AWESOME SONG!!!!
Ok, so for some reason I can't paste....so please take the time to go to youtube and listen. In the meantime the words:

Don't know where to begin
It's like my world's caving in
And I tried but I can't control my fear
Where do I go from here

Sometimes it's so hard to pray
You feel so far away
I am willing to go where you want me to
God I trust you
There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knee
SO let the waters rise
If you want them to
I will follow you
I will follow you
I will follow you

I will swim in the deep
Cuz You'll be next to me
You're in the eye of the storm and the calm of the sea
You're never out of reach

God You know where I've been
You were there with me then
You were faithful before
You'll be faithful again
I'm holding Your hand


God Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I'm holding on to You

God Your love is enough
I will follow you
I will follow You

Sept. 21, 2009 ~ Girls weekend away ~

This weekend I went to Hot Springs with my best friend Barbara. She's around my mom's age, but we are like peas and carrots. Anyway, when I got there we went to the Buckstaff for a bath and massage to relax. It was very nice, although a little uncomfortable since you're naked in front of strangers. They literally give you a bath...wash your back, arms and legs. I'm not gonna lie, I was thinking "well, at least I have good boobs". I'm just sayin....
So, after we did that we went back to the hotel to take a nap. When we got up we had some time to kill before we wanted to go to dinner so we were just hanging out in the room. We were a little hungry and Barb had horded apples and peanut butter from the hotel breakfast that morning. Apparently she was afraid we would run out of food at some point, which would obviously be devastating. :) We decided to eat our apples, but didn't have a knife, so I said I would go down to the desk and get some. As I was down there I realized I didn't know what room number we were in. When I stepped on the elevator I realized I didn't even know what floor. I had a little moment of panic, but thought I remembered we were on the 2nd floor. For some unknown reason I thought I would be able to figure out what room we were in by remembering how far down the hall we walked! I got to the door and was pretty confident I had the right room 223. When I knocked Barb didn't answer. So I stuck my head up to the door and could hear someone. That's when I realized I must have the wrong room. At this point I just stood in the hall not knowing what to do. Then I remembered I knew Barb's phone number, which is a miracle in itself cause I don't know any phone numbers I just find them in my contacts. Anyway, I went back down to the front desk and humility had to take over. The lady at the desk came over and I said "Do you happen to have a phone I can borrow? I can't remember what room I'm in". As she laughed she asked what the name was and told me I was in room 221. When I got to the room I was cracking up laughing. *sigh* The things I get myself into.

Sept. 14, 2009 ~ Never thought I'd see the day ~

So, I can't sit Indian style anymore. Seriously....I can't. It hurts my hip and I can't walk when I stand up. I also can't sit with my right leg curled under me. Most of the time, when I get up from any sitting position, I have to limp the first few steps.....I'm just sayin....

Setp. 2, 2009 ~ He WILL ~

I had to make a special blog for this one. Billie said she almost did away with this one because Cam was looking down, looking mad, I was looking well....something...anyway...then she thought of this Bible verse. If you can't see it, click on the pic to make it bigger and you can see the verse at the top. This is a verse from the Bible she pointed out to me and it is VERY special. God WILL restore the years the locust have eaten!
