This and That

Today I just wanted to share some of what is on my brain....I know what your thinking that's scary but any how here goes.....

My brother and sister in law and nephew are at the hospital right now. My sister in law's mom is dying. She has bad lung disease was out on a ventilator a few days ago. She is being taken off today. My heart is breaking for them. All of them. If you have a minute please say a prayer for them.

Yesterday I got an anonymous card in the mail meant to hurt my feeling from a mean and spiteful member of my own family. Someone I have literally know every day of my life since the day after I was born. I am not going to say I wasn't effected by it. Because that would be a lie. When I opened it I felt like I got a punch in the gut that took all the air out of my body. I did carry it around with me for a bit yesterday, the hurt I mean. I wanted to fight back or sink in a hole I wasn't sure which or both. Then after getting counsel from those who love me and going to Kids Pointe, listening to some some good Christan music form Mandisa I thought I felt better. But my sleep last night was filled with crazy scary nightmares.
I went to church this morning listening to the music and the message helped me move way past the hurt, anger and move into Gods healing light. I actually makes me feel sad that someone I know, in my own family would be so hurtful to someone who did nothing to them. Well I know now they are the ones who need prayers not me. I will go on with my life healed by the blood of Christ while this person lives in the hate and meanness they created for them selves.

My hubby just went through the next step to a promotion he has applied for and it is looking very good. Our lives maybe changing soon. It is all in God's hands we have decided to follow His direction on this.

I was working on a project with my last class on STDs to educate young people and was hoping to hook up with a local pregnancy center to get the news and education out. This morning I talked to someone from the The Low Country Pregnancy Center and I am going to talk to them about getting my project out to the public. I am stoked!! If I can help educate young Christians on STDs that would be totally awesome. If I could stop one young female from getting cervical cancer by educating them about STDs like HPV wow! AWESOME!!

In a two weeks I am headed to my daughter Sharon's house for a visit I am very excited!!

That's all for now.....I'll be back soon....Till then...Give praises to the Lord for He is Good and God Bless!

High School Girl Friends

I just had a wonderful weekend with some high school girl friends. We lost touch for a long time almost 20 years but when we got together it was just like we saw each other yesterday. We laughed and reminisced and laughed and teased and laughed some more. We talked about the things we never did in high school about our families and secrets we never knew about each other. All this only made us feel closer.

I feel like God brought us back together because of the way it happened. I had lost touch with both of these girls after our 10 year high school reunion. I searched the internet for them, then facebook came around. I searched for a few years on facebook. Finally I found one of the girls and anothers daughter found me. I have prayed for them often over the years and wondered how they were doing. Then all the sudden they were there and we were together again. It was wonderful!!!

Whats on my mind

Hey there right now I am sitting in the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight that has been delayed. I hate to fly; although it is something I do several times a year. Right now I am headed to Alabama to meet up with two of my best friends from High School. We found each other because of facebook. I am pretty excited even though I am stalled right now. We have no specific plans just going to hang out and catch up. The last time we saw each other was our 10 year reunion in 1989.

I like to people watch and there are so many people here. It is amazing!

In a few weeks I will be off again to my daughter's house in Salem Oregon. I haven't been there or seen her since August of last year. That is a long time for us. I haven't seen my grandson since he was 1 month old now he is 8 months old. He is crawling and so adorable. I can not wait to hug and squeeze and snuggle him.

I will turn 50 in May. I can not believe it! I don't feel 50 in my head; although my body feels it more often. In my head I am still that high school girl, ya know! I normally don't even keep track of how old I am my family does but 50 is hard to forget!
My sweet husband, who actually has gone spring gobbler turkey hunting every year for my birthday because after all it is not his fault my mom had me in spring gobbler season, bought a cruise for my birthday this year. We are leaving May 4 out of Charleston to go to Bahamas. I am so excited!! Never been on a cruise before.

On another issue last semester in school I was killing myself with two classes and all I had to do in them and got a c in each class. I hate that!! Yesterday as if I don't feel bad enough about it I have been put on academic probation! I have to call my adviser to find out all the details.

Kevin's opportunities for his job. He has a psych eval on 4/24. That is the next step to move closer to home so we shall see what is going to happen. We are ready to follow God where he leads us. We are still completing renovations on the house but hey it will make it easier to sell and bring the price up if we have to move right??

Well thats all for now I could write much much more but I will wait for a better time.
