How Beautiful

          How beautiful, the hands that served the wine and the bread,
          and the sons of the earth.

          How beautiful, the feet that walked the long dusty roads, and
          the hill to the cross.

          How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful,
          is the body of Christ.

          How beautiful, the heart that bled, that took all my sin and
          bore it instead.

          How beautiful, the tender eyes that choose to forgive and
          never despise.

          How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful, is the body of Christ.

          And as He laid down His life. We offer this sacrifice,
          that we will live, just as He died.

          Willing to pay, to pay the price, willing to pay the price.

          How beautiful, the radiant bride, who waits for her Groom with
          His light in her eyes.

          How beautiful, when humble hearts give the fruit of pure lives
          so that others may live.

          How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful, is the body of Christ.

          How beautiful, the feet that bring the sound of good news, and
          the love of the King.

          How beautiful, the hands that serve the wine and the bread,
          and the sons of the earth.

          How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful, is the body of Christ.


There's no place like HOME!! :)

Hey everyone!! As most of you know... I"M HOME!! :) And happy to be so too. Dad and I left Anderson, IN at 5:30 am and got home at 12:30 pm. I had a good time, but i am still glad to be home and in my own bed. But what i REALLY missed, was Mom's home cooking!! :) Michelle's cooking is good, but i love Mom's. I didn't get to see Loralee while i was down there though.. :(
I hope you all missed me while i was gone... :) Otherwise i would be sad if you didn't.


New New New News... :)

Hey again. This has been an interesting few weeks.... :) Some of you already know that i am still in Indiana, and will be staying down here for a little bit. Dad has to come back down here to replace an entire cast iron pipe in order to stop the leaking from all the way down from the upstairs bathroom, to the basement. I don't know when i will be back... Maybe Thursday. It depends on how long it takes Dad to get the pipe replaced, and maybe a few other things done as well. 

So far it has been good down here. Monday we got here at about 1:30ish, went to the Anderson County Library, and then ate some lunch at a little place called Rax. The Library was amazing!! It is 3 stories high, and about 4 times the size of the Traverse City Library. It is HUGE!! I didn't have time to go through it all though... :( We did go to the Children's section though. And even that is almost bigger than the Bear Lake Library in its self. The food was delicious!! I had a Baked Potato with Cheddar Cheese sauce, and Bacon on top. That was so good!! We did some work on the house, and then went to the apartment, and just crashed. Tuesday we did more work on the house, and was going to go to the Conference at the Hoover's Church, but we had too much work to do. :( We then went back to the apartment, and crashed.  Wednesay we had more work, and then we went to Dale and Michelle's Church, then back to the apartment, and crashed. Thursday i found out that i was staying until Dad came back so i could help some more with the house.  Friday was a day off!! :) We had been invited to go to the Cosby's house for dinner. Two of Johnathan's friends from College was there, and one of them (Brenden) made dinner for us. He made Korean Hawian Chicken and Fried rice. It was AWESOME!! Also, we had Salad (which Amanda made i think) and also Amanda's Incredible Apple Pie!! Ohhhh that was GOOD!! Rhonda was home for that, so i got to see her. :) She took Heather to the store to get some Ice Cream to go with the Pie. That was also good. And there is today. Michelle and Heather and I are going to the house, while Dale goes to a friends Wedding. I have got to get going, but i thought i should take the time to type this out and let you all know how i was doing and where i was. Miss you all!! 


New New News... :)

Hey y'all. Guess what??
We are going down to Indiana!! :) We leave early (yuck) Monday morning, and come back on Thursday.
I want to thank all of your prayers, because our Car is fixed, and it didn't cost anything!! Dad was calling around for a part to fix it, and a guy that we have had fix our car several times asked dad what it was doing, and he told him, and the guy said to do something with the fan...i think... ( I know nothing of cars... Can you tell?? :) But now it is fixed and Mom, Dad and I are going down to help Michelle and Dale move, and go to the Conference for a day. :) So please be praying for our safety, and that we can get Michelle and Dale all moved in quickly. Thanks!! :)


Some Day

Some day when my last line is written

Some day when I’ve drawn my last breath

When my last words on earth have been spoken

And my lips are sealed in death:

Don’t look on my cold form in pity

Don’t think of me as one dead

It will just be the house I once lived in

My spirit by then will have fled

I’ll have finished my time here allotted

But I won’t be in darkness alone

I will have heard from heaven

The summons to come on home

And when my body is in the grave

Don’t think that I’ll be there

I won’t be dead, but living

In the place Jesus went to prepare

And after all is said and done

Know that my last earnest prayer

Was that my loved ones be ready

Some day to meet me there


New News...

Hey All. Just wanted to let you know that we are not going down to Indiana.
Our car is leaking Power Steering Fluid fast, so we are going to have to get that fixed. And it isn't going to be fast fix either. We would take the truck down, but 3 people in a small truck for 7 hours.... that just doesn't mix. So if you will, be praying that our car would get fixed soon. Thanks everyone!!


Upcoming news...

Hey everyone. Just thought i would update and tell you what is going on here. Friday (or MAYBE even Thursday) i will be going down to Indiana with Mom and Dad, to Dale and Michelle's and staying with them for a couple days. That is all i know at the moment. I Might be going to the Conference for a day or two... Still making plans, so i won't know too much for a little while. I would ask for you to pray for me and my Family for safe traveling, and to make the right decisions. Thank you all!!

"God Defined - is God Confined"

Hey. Thought it was time for a new post. I got this in an email and thought 'yall might enjoy it.

Long before recovery, and even many years into it, I had a need to understand who and what God was. I was sure that if I was "good" and acted the way I thought God wanted me to act, then I could control Him, and ultimately I would get what I wanted. I didn't know it then, but what I was trying to do was impose my will on God and make it seem like it was His will.
As you can imagine, this never worked out. The harder I tried to control people, places and things, presuming God's will was in alignment with mine, the more uncontrollable my life became, and the more I began to resent others, myself and God. It took many years for me to truly surrender my will and my life to God, but once I did I discovered a faith that went beyond understanding.
Today my faith confirms that God's will is infinitely better for me and others than I could ever imagine. By constantly affirming, "Thy will, not mine be done," I enjoy the freedom that comes from surrendering to the power and love of God. Today God is no longer confined by my need to define Him, and as a result I get to be a witness to His miracles as they unfold around me.


My Big Sis'

My dear Big Sis, you are the greatest there is,
And amazing in everyway.
I greatly admire and look up to you,
Each and every day.

You are always showing how much you care,
From your heart that is filled with love.
You are a beautiful Angel,
Sent from the heavens above.

I am the luckiest Sis in the world,
To have grown up next to you.
We played and laughed and had fun together,
A great bond that has always stayed true.

Big Sis you are always in my heart & thoughts,
And I am always sending you a hug and kiss.
You are my world and I love you so much,
Always and Forever...Your Lil' Sis.


Pics of me this summer...

Hey all. I just thought i would post some pictures of me for a change... Anna Joy took these of me this summer, and i really like them.


One thing i have learned...

Hey everyone. I wanted to share something that i think i have used a lot in my life... It is a very true saying.

"It is best to keep one's mouth shut, then to open it, and dig a hole and bury one's self with one's tongue."

That has gotten me out of a whole lot of trouble over the years...


Funny pic!!


A new post, and a new Blog

Hey everyone. I thought i would take a little time to post and tell you about the new Blog that Bethany, Lydia and I started. It is an Anti-Abortion blog. We would greatly appreciate it if you would spread it abroad to all who are thinking of aborting, or anyone who is an Anti-Abortionist so they can give a testimony of sorts to encourage Women to not abort. Thank you.
