Sorry it has been a while since I have posted! The days just seem to get away from me and I am going to bed even earlier and earler. That is pitiful!
Anyways, the reason for my post. Over the past year I have been in contact with my "boyfriend" (not really sure if we are official yet) cause he is in the Navy (Hawaii-how nice is that). We have only been able to contact eachother by text and emails so it has been really hard to commuicate and get to know eachother on a deeper level. It really frustrates me, but I am ok with it for now. I have never met anyone like him before. His desire for God and to share Jesus is like none I have ever seen. As much as I admire and think highly of him I am not sure if he is the "ONE." I mean how do you really tell if this person is someone you could spend the rest of your life with. Is it just my feelings or is it something more? Anyways, I am sooo excited for him to come and visit for Christmas, it has been a whole year since I have seen him.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been really tired since I started my new job. Who would have thought that working fulltime would make you so tired, even if you are doing nothing. Makes me go, "HHHMMMM"! But other than working I lead the most boring life known to man kind! I work the come home, watch tv, and go to bed then do it the next day! So sometimes it is hard to post things when I do nothing exciting!

If something great comes along the I will let you know how it went!!

I am off to my first full day of work for the first time at a new job!!! SCARY, I know!!!! It seems like just yesterday I was trying out for my high school basketball team and trying to finish my homework. But that was over 6 years ago, AMAZING!!!! Time just seems to pass by so fast that I don't really realize it is gone until I take these moments and reflect on them. Now I am trying to work on staying in the moment so that I don't miss everything in life ( i tend to stay in the past or focus on the future). Well anyway I am off to work as an adult not a child anymore!!!!! YYYYAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sleepless Nights!

So for some reason I have been having trouble sleeping at night the past few days. Though it is not unusual for me to have trouble sleeping, lately it has been really bad. You would think that I would be used to it by now but I am not. It is so hard trying to go to sleep for 2 hours and your brain won't stop turning over and over with random thoughts that aren't really important at that moment. I am really going to need my sleep when I start my job cause I don't do very well on a lack of sleep, trust me!!!! I get a little ugly!!! It is a sin that I have, along with all the rest! Anyways, I need God to help calm my thoughts and I have prayed that He will, but if you would do the same I would appreciate it a lot.

I finally heard back this morning that I got the job that I originally applied for and I start on the 15th doing the training!!! YAY (I am singing and dancing at the same time)!!!! I can't wait! I do need some more dress pants and better shoes, cause if you know me at all...I don't really dress up and I have to wear buisness clothes!!! Yikes!!! So if you know of any sales please let me know!

Job Update!

So here is the update on the job situation.

I did hear anything about the job that I applied for for about a week and a half. Then TODAY I got a call from the HR lady and she said she was out of town, but another lady at a diffrent branch was supposed to call me...SHE DIDN'T, until today. So I got another interview with her tomorrow. But then I got another call at 4:57 from another guy in the HR department about the original job that I interviewed for and he wants to talk to me about that position again...I think he might give it to me, but I am not sure. So, I am in a bit of a pickle between two jobs in the same company! This is a good thing, but very stressful for me!

Trip To Manhattan!!!!

So my sister and I took our very first trip together to go to our neighbors wedding in Manhattan. It was a long day!!!! Here are a few pics from our adventure! And maybe a video!

So we decided to sing as loud as we could to 3 Dog Night!!!

This was my bestfriend all the way there and back!!!! I couldn't have made it without you!!!
This is the lovely truck that we followed most of the way there, and every time I tried to pass him someone was coming the other way!!!!
One of many barns we saw on the way there!!! And this one happens to be a friend of mines parents barn!!!
Another Barn!!!
Guess what? Another Barn!!!

On our way we decided to stop by our Grandparents old house in Council Grove! It is called the Corey House!!! They moved out and someone turned it into a bed and breakfast (and painted it this gross pink).

We were taking pics out in front of it and then some people asked us if we needed some help and we told them that it was our Grandparents house and the lady was so nice she let us go inside and look around. We had not been there in many year, since we were real little.

This is on the front of the Corey House and tells about it!

We finally made it to the church!!!!

This is the car that the Bride and Groom road away in after the wedding!

So needles to say we had a good time, but it was a really long day!

Really Frustrated!!!!!!!!

K, so I have yet to hear about the job and I have called a number of times and still nothing! So I called the HR lady to find out and she didn't know anythings so she said she would try to find out and then let me know ASAP! She also said that if I didn't get this position that she would try to find a different one....that is good! But I still haven't heard from her today, so I am really frustrated!!!! GGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

Closer to God

So lately I have been striving to be closer to God! There are points in life where you are going about your life and feel that something is missing and yet you don't know what it is. Then finally when you are so far away from Him, that is when you realize exactly that, you are too far from Him and He wants you closer to Him. For me it wasn't real clear that that was what I needed to do. Cause I go to church, lead a small group, teach two's Sunday school class, but yet I still was not where God was wanting me to be. He wanted to spend time with me and I with Him. And I have that desire, but yet it is the inevitable time factor! I haven't even been reading like I usually do, I have yet to find a book resently that I desire to read (besides the BIBLE). If you have any suggestions please let me know!

It's In The Valleys I Grow

Sometimes life seems so hard
Full of pain, anger, and frustration
It's then I have to remember
That's it's in the valleys I grow.

I've been on top of the mountian
And never thought I could feel this pain again
Or experience God's love the way I did before
That I might be living apart from Him.

I have so much to learn
And my growth seems so slow
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it's in the valleys I grow.

I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do
But I am very sure of one thing,
My Lord will see me through.

My little valleys are nothing
When I picture Christ on the cross
He went through the valley of death
His victory was Satan's loss.

Forgive me Lord, for complaining
When I'm feeling so very low
Just give me a gentle reminder
That's it's in the valleys I grow.

Continue to strengthen me, Lord
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.

Thank you for valleys, Lord
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it's in the valleys I grow.

Do you ever feel that you are stretched beyond what you think you are capable of doing? Then you go ahead and do it, because you have faith in God that He will help you in whatever way you need. And it turns out great or better than expected. Well i know it happens to lots of people, but it is so hard for me to have that blind faith. I am the scaredest person in the world when it comes to doing new things that i have never done before or that i am unsure of what might happen. I stress about every little thing that goes on in my life that i don't think that i am really getting a chance to enjoy this gift of life that God has given me. I know God does not want me to be stressed, but it is that blind faith thing that i need to work on....i have a lot of things that i need to work on. But who doesn't, cause nobody's perfect!

Brownies and Key Lime Pie

So my cousin Amy and her two kids have come down for a week from Rockford Ill. Clint is 12 and is sooooo tall. Makayla is 9 and has the greatest personality ever. This is what happens when we haven't seen each other in over 2 years! Makayla called us brownies and my sister the key lime pie.

This is Makayla and Me
These are our best faces!!

Clint and my youngest brother Blake.

Makayla and her new glasses!

My sister just being herself!

Makayla in the back seat...she hates to have her pic taken!

We were at a stop light and decided to just be our selves!

Need I say anything?

My cousin Mindy (no one ever gets to take a pic of her....but i was sneaky and got one)!!!!!

Olympics Have Begun!!!!

I have been watching the Olympics the past few days and i am so captivated by them. It doesn't matter what sport i am watching, i just get really into it. Though i think my favorite sports are swimming, gymnastics, diving, beach volleyball, tennis, just do name a few. Earlier i was watching men's water polo and was thinking to myself..."I would totally drowned if i tried that!" Too much swimming and then you have to carry a ball and try to put it into a net while others are blocking you. I can't even throw the ball without anyone infront of me. But that is why i am not a water polo player or an Olympian!

Back From Camp....And Missing It!!!!

RFKC was so much fun this year. I am missing the RFKC family and the kids. They are all near and dear to my heart. They all have helped me to grow as a person in some way or another.

We had water fights, injuries, sickness, lots of heat, laughs that made your stomache hurt for days, ear muffs, pool talks, singing, learning about God, and much more!!!!

This year I felt that I got to know more kids than I have in the past years. I think i talked to all of the girls at least once and some of the boys too! That is impressive for me (I don't talk that much)!

Please pray for those kids that went, as well as those who served!

Blessings to all!

First Post

This is my first post and i am new at this kind of blog. So i could use some pointers if you have them.
