Not this Christmas...

Christmas was great. Low key. Not much going on. But i know. And the family knew...Two spaces were empty... Two times the laughter was missing...Two more pairs of feet not heard. Maybe by next Christmas... Two will join us.

heart changing

today's act of kindness was to make sandwiches for the homeless. so tonight we went around handing them out. we started on the streets but didn't see many. then we stopped into the library where it was warm... astonished. we had 30 sandwiches left. and as we handed them out there weren't enough.there was a man with his sons. homeless. as we drove away i saw 2 men with a sandwich and a bag of chips eating away and the look on their faces was indescribable. someone had reached out to them... i cried. my heart went out to these people. i want to help these people. even just once a week going into the library and handing out a meal. my heart is changing.

real friends

i found my real friends. the ones who were always there, whether i needed them or not. the real friends who saw past my plastic smile. the people who knew what to say. my friends who made me laugh when i was beside myself. the kids who prayed for me. my friends who worshiped with me. they have been around for years now. never left my side. but i was thinking about it. and these are my real friends. although sometimes they feel like brothers and sisters.. :) and today and everyday from now on, i will thank God for them.

The Real Me by Natalie Grant

my best friend & i together.

we sit on the beach together and laugh for hours. we talk to random people in different states telling them how we are "city girls". we trip over the same step together. we watch chick flicks and cry together. we do each others hair and make-up. we tell each other the truth about what outfit looks horrendous. we can laugh and sing in a tent together during a flood. we get sick of each other...together. we stay up all night together, having the funniest conversations ever. we dream together, thinking about our future. we pray together, realizing that we aren't going to be "that magazine girl." we give thanks together,praising God for all the experiences and people we have met and have been able to serve. we are who we are... together. followers of Jesus Christ.

My Little " Willy"

you see my little sister is only four. so the words she pronounces aren't always perfect. especially the word "really". instead of "really" it comes out "willy". so there you have it my little "Willy". she makes me laugh when she isn't even trying. she wakes me up every morning telling me that she willy loves me. when i come home from the bus stop she stands by the door, waves, blows me a kiss, and tells me i look willy pretty. she makes my day. she gets me going. she keeps me young. so just to let you know... i willy love her! :)

Life Is More Than 4 Letters

When you explain life what does it mean? Does it mean siting on the couch eating potato chips? What about going to school,coming home with homework,and not doing any of it? Or playing video games for hours not realizing a minuted has passed? Have you been outside? Have you seen the broken and hurting? Or are you to busy on the T.V.? Hello? People are dying and your siting on the couch being lazy?!?! Get up and do something! Life is more than you. Life's four letters stretch a long way. Last time i checked there was no "me" in life. So next time your just sitting around and doing nothing, check out the world beyond your backyard. Life is the manner of living... How is your life going to be? More than four letters?

I'm ready for flowers to bloom and birds to chirp. I'm ready for rain instead of snow. I'm ready for the warm weather and cool wind to blow. I'm ready for the seasons to change. I'm ready for spring to come and winter to go.

You know the time when you need some one to talk to? Or the time when you want some one to shut up and just listen to you? Or the time when you need advice? Or the time when you need a laugh? Or the time where you need a shoulder to cry on? Or the time you're confused? Or the time when you feel lonely? Or the time when you cant' wait,the time when you can't wait to call some one your best friend? You think you have a best friend, but then they turn on you when you tell them the truth? The so called best of a friend becomes the outlet of all your secrets? We want to call some one a best friend. we search forever, trying to find the right one. Not to long ago i found one. Yes one, not two or three, one. the one best friend who listens to me.admires who i really am. Gives me advice. Tells me its going to be okay because God is with me. Prays for me every night. Tells me she loves me like a sister. And I'm glad i can call her my best friend. Thanks Lindz!
