"Things just weren't the same after the surgery"


Times are a-changin!

It's been awhile since I've been inspired to write a blog and I haven't had enough time to just sit and write. We'll see what I come up with today...

A lot of things have changed. Some days I feel like I'm in a dream and I'll wake up and everything will be normal. Then I realize that I'm not dreaming, I am fully awake and fully ALIVE! And it's amazing. Yes, times are hard and sometimes I don't understand why things happened the way they did, but that doesn't mean I'm not happy. I don't think I've ever been happier. God has done so much these past few months that I am blown away. My eyes have been opened to things that I was too prideful or deceived to see. I am free, and it's been awhile since I've felt this way. God has really taught me how to forgive and move on. Don't hold any hard feelings and don't live in the past. Just live for today, live in the moment!

This summer I have some amazing opportunities that I am so excited for! I get to go to Colorado to see all of my family, go camping and relax. I get to go to Seattle for a long overdue trip to see some amazing friends! I get to, hopefully, road trip down the coast to get to Spirit West Coast in Monterey to help interview bands with my best friend, yes Amanda. Then I get to hang out here, meet new people and just have fun.

I'm not worried anymore. God has given me so many ways to stay in Flag next year. Yet He's planted dreams and desires in my heart to possibly move. I'm not sure where yet, but going to hang out in Seattle might stir up some desires. Or maybe I'll end up in Nashville, or even a random city in Cali. I honestly don't know and that's the excting part, not knowing. I get to sit back, relax and watch as Jesus takes the wheel. I have a front row seat to my own life! Man, I am so excited! And if you read all of this you should give yourself kudos!

So tell me, what's keeping you on your toes right now?

Picture of the Day

I'm more of a myspacer than a blogger, but I really am trying to get into the groove of this. On myspace I started up a 'picture of the day' album. It's been fun to take random pictures on my phone and upload them with a caption that doesn't quite describe what happened. I like to keep people in suspense! So today, in honor of myspace, I will post a picture of the day. Gah, except it's not today's picture, I'm only about four days behind, haha. Being sick does that to you. So here was the trip to wa*mart (yes, one of the more exciting things to do in a small town) with my best friend. Thank God for picture cameras!! It only took about three takes since we couldn't stop laughing!

(Look Mom, I posted a picture all by myself!!!)

Goood morning world!

Ok so it's not morning, but that's been stuck in my head all day and I had to get it out sometime :)

I think I'm going stir crazy. I've been sick with a mad head cold for almost a week now and stuck in my house for 4 days? 3 days? It's felt a lot longer. I did bribe my mom to buy me a starucks and that helped! Ah well I could ramble on for awhile but I'll stop now.

Oh but toilet paper has officially become my best friend. I used an entire roll yesterday..on my nose sicko! lol.

Alright well when I started this blog I actually had something to blog about and now I can't remember. So this was pointless and meaningless and I'm just gonna go now. :)
