Update

Thought I would jump on here this morning and let you all know where I'm at. When I say all I mean my husband who is sitting right here and knows where I am and the other 3 people that possibly might read this:)

I am heading to a Beth Moore simulcast this morning and could not be more excited. I have loved her Bible studies and conferences and I can not wait to go and hear a Word today.

I was very busy this past week speaking and doing school and doing housework and driving my kids from here to there and cooking and.....ok enough playing my own sad song you get the picture. It was super busy and I am really tired. I did have an awesome time speaking to the 4 women's groups that I had an opportunity to share with but I am always grateful for busy weeks to come to an end.

I was thinking this week about the speaking I have been doing and God never ceases to amaze me. I am about as unqualified as a girl could be on my own and yet when I stand up He takes over and words actually come out of my mouth. Usually I want to throw up right up until the moment I stand there. He is so amazing. He uses everything if we will allow Him to.

I guess the "allowing Him to" is usually my biggest problem. Most of the time I am to stubborn and I miss out.

Well my laptop is starting to have one of its fits so I better get going. There is so much more going on I would love to tell you about. I will as soon as I can. I hope you have a blessed weekend!

Sorta a Joke

Ok...my letter to Dell Computer was really meant as a joke. Not that it isn't all true but I really never expected Dell to leave a comment:) Too funny. Maybe I should write them a thank you note:

Dear Dell Computer:

Thank you for finding my blog. I know you like your customers to be happy and though my computer still doesn't work you have been very kind. Please stop by the blog anytime.


On a totally unrelated note I would like to write Dunkin Donuts a letter. Do you know when you order munchkins through the drive thru you can't do any special ordering. We are not fans of Dutch Crumb so I always ask for them to be left out. I had to go in the store to get my box of munchkins minus the Dutch Crumb. How inconvenient.

But I guess that is all I really have to complain about so I consider myself very blessed. Today is my 19th anniversary. I can't believe it. I was married at 18 years old and so you just have to do the math. I have been married over half my life. Greg is an awesome guy and though much of our time together has been a bit rocky I am blessed to be his wife and I love him dearly. I am looking forward to another 19 years and I know that they will fly by just like the last 19.

I just wanted to jump on and say hi to all of you but I really should be going. My grandbaby is coming at 3:30 and we are going to get pictures taken and buy him some new shoes!!!

Have a blessed day!

Computer Issues

Dear Dell Computer~

I have put up with your shenanigans(is that a word?) long enough. I loved you when you first showed up on my doorstep all shiny and new and pink but you have let me down one too many times. Now I know you say that I have let you down by letting my virus protection and such expire but enough is enough. If you don't soon shape up I am replacing you. And also when I call for help and someone located who knows where takes control of my computer that is just weird. I hope whoever it is can't actually see me because last week we spent two hours together and I didn't have on one stitch of make-up. So next time I hit your power button and you decide to take an hour to power on just know that I won't be coming back......you will be dead to me!

Thanks from your very irritated owner!


So there you have it....we are having problems with my laptop AGAIN. I am so frustrated and when I call the problem doesn't get resolved and I spend valuable time just sitting in front of my laptop trying to keep the chaos at a minimum here so that the gentleman on the other end doesn't think he is connected to the zoo as opposed to a residence. I am afraid he will try to charge me the business rate.

On another totally unrelated note I haven't started school yet. I can't believe it myself. I usually try to have at least 10 days in by the time September rolls around but I haven't done a thing. My neighbor and I always say we will start when the spirit moves but she started this week and I haven't felt anything moving down my way. I guess I will start Tuesday regardless of what I feel.

I guess a lot of life is that way. We are called to do many things regardless of how we feel. So often our feelings just deceive us anyway. I was reading Psalm 51 and verse 6 says this:

Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

He does desire for us to have truth in our inner most parts because it is that truth that will guide us when we are tempted to follow our feelings down a path that could be very destructive. Trust me on this one...unfortunately I have had plenty of personal experience on following feelings down a destructive path.

We are headed to the mountains for the weekend and will back on Monday. If I can I will try and jump back on this weekend if the spirit moves but I make no promises:)

Have a blessed day! Is anyone still out there anyway????
