5 Question Friday!

I Haven't done this in FOREVER! and by FOREVER I actually mean months! Jump on in on the fun over at Mama M's!

1. Do you close the bathroom door when you are home alone?(this one was my question suggestion)
Oh yeah, all the time. In fact, when I am home alone, closing the bathroom door just stops. I don't even have to consciously not close it. Weird. I do it at other people's houses, when I am dog sitting. I always close the door when I am showering though. Tell me that makes sense...

2. You have to walk around with a word on your forehead. That word describes you. One word. What is it?


3. What store do you refuse to shop at and why?
WAL-MART!!! Oh. my. word. I know a lot of people shop here, but I just can't bring myself to do it! And if you ever hit up Sturgis, MI, you will meet the epitome of all Wal-Marts!

4. If you participated in arranged marriages for your child(ren), who would you choose for your child(ren)?
I don't have my own kiddos, but for the 2 girls I watch, I would choose the 2 brothers who play hockey them!

5. If you could pick how and when you would die, would you?
Tough question!! In the game "Would You Rather" there is question that states "would you rather know when you are going to die or how you are going to die?" I stand by my answer of when. I think if you knew you were going to die in a car accident you would be afraid to get in the car every time...or of would think every lump is a malignant tumor. That is way too much stress for me. However, to this question I think I would go with yes, but I would just say on my 80th birthday and not painfully! :)

Sweet Jesus~ Thinking about this tonight

Sweet Jesus, my Savior,You are my faithful friend
You made me, You know me
You see my every sin
And my soul is amazed by this gift of Your grace
And these arms that take me in
Sweet Jesus, my Savior, You are my faithful friend

Sweet Jesus, my shelter, You are my faithful friend
The refuge that I run to when my world comes closing in
Why should I be afraid when I know I am saved
By the arms that take me in

Sweet Jesus, my shelter, You are my faithful friend

Oh yeah

Sweet Jesus, my shepherd, You are my faithful friend
You hold me, you lead me, I'll follow til the end
And once more I will say on that beautiful day
When Your arms take me in
Sweet Jesus, my shepherd, You are my faithful friend

Sweet Jesus my Savior You are my faithful friend.

In "so many days" and counting.....

The final countdown has begun. The days and nights I have stayed up until the morning hours, all the times I said I had work to go home and do, the papers and papers and PAPERS I had to write, the books I bought and (sometimes) read, the quizzes and exams, the students loans, and all the crazy, ridiculous APA 6th Edition rules.....

It's all about to come to a crazy ending. Truthfully, I can't believe it's already here. I have never felt like there was no light at the end of the tunnel, but I never saw this coming so quickly.

Lord willing, in less than two weeks, I will have my MA in Human Service-Health & Wellness.

I am about to embark on "real life" I am equally excited and scared out of my ever-loving mind! I keep saying, "It's time to grow up!" I have been so unbelievably blessed to have walked this path with parents, family, and friends who have been so supportive and understanding. People have made serious sacrifices so I can be here today. My heart is so full of gratitude. I know I will never be able to thank them enough. I don't even know how blessed I am.

Onward I march to the finish line...that I know is really only the beginning.

Truth in the eyes of hypocrisy

I always tell people to not worry
I always say God will provide
I always preach the importance of communication
I ask others why they allow themselves to be used
I tell people to lift their eyes to the heavens, from there they will find help
I tell people to just trust, even when it seems too hard
I always say God will make a way

How easy it is for me to say these things to others....but time and time again, I fall short in all of these areas. I am a hypocrite. I am only a shadow of who I want to be.

Oh, Lord, that I would learn to heed my own advice. To walk in the way You desire. To love with no abandon. To stand up for myself and for You. To trust.
