I am excited today!!!

For a few years I have had on my heart that I wanted to help people suffering from devastation. I think it started with the pictures of the Tsuanmi a few years ago or it could have been earlier than that. When ever I see an area ravaged by devastaion all I want to do is help. I had a heart for the Katrina victums but did not know what to do. Well this morning at church an oppertunity has arisen and I am going to step up to the challenge, step out of my comfort zone and do some work for the Lord!
Our church, Point North Community Church, is going to take a mission trip to Galveston Texas. I volunteered!
I am scared, I am excited. I am scared because I do not know what I will be asked to do, and will my work give me the time off. You see my daughter and grandson are coming the week before Thanksgiving anfd I want to spend time with them, so I do not want to use up my vacation time for this. So, that makes me scared because I will probally have to do this with out pay. I am excited because I am trusting the Lord and stepping out of my comfort zone for HIM!
Please pray for this mission trip.

Looking Forward to the Weekend

I am so looking forward to the weekend!!! I have so much to do and no money of course that's no surprise. I have to go to a 2 year olds birthday party, then take my grandmother to dinner. My sister wants me to go to a seminar on how to make millions of dollars on the Internet with a small business web page, don't think I have time for that..... then Sunday I have 2 luncheons to go to after church one is for a friend who is leaving for Iraq next week and will be gone for a few months; the other is a luncheon with the service group at church. Then my church stuff of course. The strange thing is I feel like I am slacking because I am not on the computer doing school stuff because I have a 2 week break. Any who, I am looking forward to the weekend. Then Monday I am working as a volunteer for the Hollings Cancer Center Golf Tournament........SO instead of spending all day at work I will be at the golf course driving around in a golf cart distubutating liquid refreshments to the golfers.
Have a great weekend y'all!

My Dad

After the initail shock of the heart attack my dad is doing good. Actually the doctors said it was a good thing it happened the way it did. They say if this would not have happened now he would have had a massive heart attack and died in a few years. The docs said he is doing so good because of his diet and exercise routine but they will keep close tabs on him. I praise the Lord for saving my dad!!! I do not know what I would do if anything happened to him. Even though I am 40...something I am still daddy's little girl and will be till the day I die!! I love you dad!!!!!

Scariest phone call

I was at work today in clinic and got a page to come turn of my phone it had bells and whistles going off. What I found was a missed phone call from my step-mom and a text message saying "we are going to passavant hospital." I texted back Why. That is when I got a call from my sister saying she was on her way to the hospital that my dad had a heart attack! O MY God!!!!! My first reaction, that is when my sister realized that I did not know yet. She told me she talked to him and he was fine on his way to get a cardiac cath done. O MY God!!!! My dad had a heart attack!!!! I started to cry. I told my sister I was ok and to keep me posted! She agreed. I went into the bathromm and balled like a baby. My daddy was having a heart attack!!!!! Please dear God I prayed let him be ok, don't let anything bad happen to my daddy. I had to compose my self because I was still at work, of course I looked like I was crying so everybody wanted to know what was wrong so I told them. They all assured me he was in the best possible place and would be taken care of and they would say a prayer.Then I got a text from my step mom saying he was good his vitals were good and he was on his way to have the cath. I notified my bosses encase I had to go to Pittsburgh to see my dad.
A few minutes ago I got a call from my sister saying he is out and he is fine. One of his adteries was completely blocked but the other had taken up the slack and was working very well. There is a small blockage in the one taking up the slack but they want to watch it put him on medication and heart healthy diet and exercise. PRAISE THE LORD FOR HE IS GOOD!!!!!!!
