This weekend

This weekend I:

Went to New York with my dear friend for a night away.

Listened to live jazz music at a piano bar.

Watched a lot of football

Went to the mall in NY

Had my first "black and tan" (Yes, I totally just used wikipedia as as reference) and loved it

Spent 15 mins driving around Albany waiting for my GPS to warm up and tell us where to go....only to find out we were within walking distance from our start point.

Got free breakfast because the toilet in our hotel room had not been cleaned when we checked in.

Ate some of the best onion rings I have ever had!

Got off the elevator on the 11th floor at our hotel to have a guy look at me and say "something tasty is cookin' ".....??? yeah.

Walked around the New York State Museum for about 3 hours.

Got to see Engine 6 from 9/11 and hear the only surviving fireman from that engine speak (on video).

Didn't take a single picture of the weekend! Crazy, right?

Feeling so grateful and blessed for such a fun and refreshing weekend! Would love to rewind the whole weekend!

And now I prepare to start school again in the morning. Break was nice while it lasted.

A lil funk

Five Question Friday

*No idea what's up with the font size at the end...

Jumping in this week...although I wish I jumped in most weeks!

1. What movie could you watch over and over again and not get tired of?
You've Got Mail. It's so cute!
Pirates of the Caribbean
Chronicle of Narnia- Just saw Voyage of the Dawn Treader....twice! Aslan gets me every time!

2. What's your biggest pet peeve right now?
I'm peeving myself lately!! Can't keep a darn thing clean!

3. If you had to describe your best friend in five words or less, what would you say?
funny (and) easy to talk to

4. If you did not have to worry about money or go to school what would you do for a living?
Gosh, I don't think I am far enough along in life to really know what my dream job would be. For a long time I wanted to work as an OB or midwife, but I don't do blood. Minor detail.

5. What is your one "splurge" item, that you will always buy, no matter the cost?
Hands down, no thought, Apple over a PC!

Rest for my soul

At times seems hard to grasp

My heart and soul are exhausted from longing, pleading, and asking

For health

For peace

For salvation of those so dear to me

For the right words

For the right thoughts

I know all these things will never completely come to pass here on earth.

When I picture the following, I know one day all will be right....

Romans 14:11 “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will acknowledge God.’”

My job is to assure my life holds a reflection of Him.
My heart is so burdened for loved ones to know and love Him here.

For what do you long? From where do you find your comfort?

THE place to be

My Bed

In all its unmade glory

Is apparently the place to be today.
