< The evidence of a very BAD night!

Last night my friends and I went to a production known as dAUnce. It was mostly interpretive dancing and had a friend of mine from high school not been in it, I probably would not have enjoyed it at all. But anyways, not the point. When we got back about 11:00 i was craving sweets..BAD! So what did we do? We loaded up and went to Kroger intending to buy donuts. And some of you know my friends and some of you do not but if you do you will not be suprised to hear that a trip to buy donuts turned into a trip to buy donuts, two boxes of cookies, cheesecake, and popcorn. We were laughing at ourselves so hard..but still bought all of it. We got back to our house and literally sat on the floor and stuffed ourselves with junk while watching a tv show, just us girls of course. (i include the next just because I love it) A little later our friend Steverson, who I wish you all had the priviledge of knowing, came in. Now most of our guy friends would have made some comment about how we were getting ourselves fat..not good, guys don't ever say that. But not Steverson. After first asking if he was ruining girls night, he joined right in the junk fest. I love it!!So that I can rap this up I will just was a hilarious night that ended in all of us feeling sick and going straight to bed. BAD! We're BAD!

Sleep - What is that?

Sleep: n. 1)the natural, regularly recurring rest for the body, during which there is little or no conscious thought.

What is sleep? Sometimes I'm not sure. Look at the time on this post. Close to 4:00 am! But, I have been working off and on for about 5 hours on an application. What could be so complicated about an application, you may ask? I had to include resume type stuff, and answer two questions, this one being the last question:

"Briefly evaluate your academic and other experiences as a college student in terms of personal growth, career expectations, and social development."

So, basically, as I understood it, I was to sum up what I had learned in college, not just academically, but on a personal level and social level. Four years to sum up. That's a lot. It took me about 5 pages to do it.

So, anyways, I hope you people out there are happy at rest, which is what I'm fixing to be. And, safe travels and blessed times to all you travelers and church goers out there.

"When I Get Where I'm Going"

I have heard at least two songs from Brad Paisley's new album played on the radio. One of the songs is the humorous "Alcohol." The other is a duet with Ms. Dolly Parton called "When I Get Where I'm Going." Their voices blend beautifully, and I could feel my eyes misting when I first heard the song. I have posted the lyrics below. The last two lines of the chorus struck me: "When I get where I'm going, don't cry for me down here." This world isn't my home. I'm just a pilgrim here. But, I'll get where I'm going someday. And, don't cry for me. I'm in a better place, and I'll see you there soon.

I've been listening to an abridged version of The Pilgrim's Progess on audio cassette tape in my car. This song also reminds me of Christian, the main character. I recommend it to anyone who hasn't yet read it. The symbolism is amazing. A-mazing.

When I Get Where I'm Going

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

[Repeat chorus]

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

Cheesiness - Moo ha ha ha

Yes, yes. The anticipated, most waited-for, cheesy pictures!! Many of these were taken at Grace Chapel's New Year's Meeting. I have more, but I didn't want to overload you, or anything. As you can tell, we had a wonderful time! I'm still learning how to work my camera, how to put pictures on the computer, etc. So, hopefully, more will follow. Much love to you all. I think of all of you often.

A night on the Plains

So what do you do when all of your guy friends are out of town for the weekend and its just you girls?? That's right, you dress up in ridiculous costumes and go singing and dancing through town. ( I recommend this activity to all) We laughed alot but I think the best part was watching the video tonight when the guys got back and them all being like, that's not normal for you all. Whatever!!! That is us being completely and utterly ourselves. Oh boys do you know us at all?

God has promised

Yesterday, amidst various showers of rain, I saw a BEAUTIFUL rainbow. This rainbow did not reach all the way to the ground, but it stopped midair. And, I could see every color. I love the simple beauty of the rainbow, and it is sad to think that others have perverted it. Because, every time I see a rainbow, I begin to hum and sing...

"I'll never flood the earth again,
Earth again, earth again.
I'll never flood the earth again.
God has promised."

Every time I see a rainbow, I'm reminded of one of God's promises.

Genesis 6:

11) And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12) And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13) I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14) And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15) And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16) And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

I'm Anxious

There is no other way to say it. I wake up..check email...get in the shower..check email...go to class...come back and...check to the store, oh it could be there i think..check email.....and d this process continues. It is tiring. I don't mean to complain, while tiring on me it is really exciting. I mean I know it will be there some time but I want it to be the next time I check my email. I'm sure some of you are clueless as to what I am so crazy over, sorry bout that, probably should have said that up front. I am waiting to hear from pharmacy schools about my admission for next semester. It's just that this has been 3 years of my life, nothing but pharmacy and it has literally come down to tomorrow or the next day or etc. i think you get the picture. I'll stop ranting now. I could use your prayers.
