Sorry for all of you who read my blog that it has been so long since I posted anything on here. I have been so preoccupied here lately and I have neglected my poor little blog.
I have had a lot of excitement over the past few weeks that I thought I would tell you about!!! First of all I had ANOTHER wreck...ugh! Which means I will have to find new insurance! Anyway, it has been fun riding in to work with my mom though. The next big piece of exciting news is that I bought my new camera!!!!!!
I am SO in love with my new camera and now I can't stop taking pictures. I will be posting pictures soon from this past weekend. My little cousin is playing baseball this year and his game was my first project and I LOVED all the pictures!
As I was driving to work today a thought went through my mind (sometimes this can be scary). If any of you have to drive 65 south through north Gardendale you will have a true appreciation for this—haha.
Ok…on to the story…I was driving my normal route on 65 this morning when I hit the first of MANY poorly patched potholes. I thought to myself someone needs to tell the state that they need to just dig the interstate up and start over. ---I mean do they know how to FIX this?!?! Instead of truly fixing the potholes they are so brilliant that they just pour more asphalt in the hole and fill it up. This gives a nice roller coaster bumpy ride to 65. However, after a few trucks run over the places it just gets uncovered and bigger.
Then I felt as if God were telling me that is what I had been doing for so many years. I had been trying to fill up the “potholes’ of my heart with other things instead of digging up the hard ground around it and letting God himself repair the hole.
All the years that I spent holding on to hurts, grudges, hate, etc etc I tried to “patch” my pothole by just covering it up and thinking it would just go away. But then when a situation that was similar to the one that caused the original pain would come along my pothole would be uncovered and bigger that before.
I feel like we all do this at times but it is time to call the Repairer of our soul and let Him dig up all the junk and fill it with His holy concrete instead of trying to fix it ourselves by patching it with worldly asphalt.
Psalm 147:2 (Message) God's the one who rebuilds Jerusalem, who regathers Israel's scattered exiles. He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds. He counts the stars and assigns each a name. Our Lord is great, with limitless strength; we'll never comprehend what he knows and does. God puts the fallen on their feet again and pushes the wicked into the ditch.
So the other day at Kelly's Korner we did a meet and greet for younger bloggers. I am SO glad she did this because I was looking for some new blogs....by the way I LOVE reading her blog!
Anyway, I came across some new blogs but one in particular stood out to me. Brilliant Brunette wrote a blog that I needed really bad. It was about waiting and those of you who know....I have been very angry about the waiting process. BUT after reading her blog I have a new outlook. You should check the post out!
Also, I would like to welcome my new friends that found me from Kelly's blog!!!!
I am so excited that I am actually walking in the Walk for Babies this year!!!! I got an email at work yesterday asking me if I would join the team and without hesitation I signed up----mainly because it is a walk and not a race (I am NOT a runner).
The walk is sponsored by March of Dimes- an incredible organization that does SO many things for precious little babies. I am honored that I get to be a part of the walk.
But there is still something that you can do to help!!!!
And make a donation OR sign up to join my team and walk!
You can also read more about March of Dimes and the Walk there as well!
For all the ones who have been praying for me and my job situation…..THANK YOU and PLEASE keep praying!!!
I still have not gotten a new job but I know one is coming---I just hope I don’t die before it happens! I know that sounds bad but that is them mood I am in. I have been at my current job for a year and I have been looking for a different one for a while now. It is not that I can’t stand the people that I work with—they are all great—but it is because I feel like I am wasting what I went to school for (all 5 years).
When I applied for this job I thought it was something completely different. This job is extremely technical and I am computer illiterate. I need to deal with numbers and business and I am not doing that at all.
I found out yesterday that the job that I applied for in the bank in the department that I REALLY wanted to work in was given to someone else. I was very upset about it and I got frustrated. I felt like God had forgotten about me and that I was just going to have to stay in this job and be miserable.
BUT I thank God for the friends I have that started sending me encouraging verses and words. I don’t think I would have made it through the day without screaming crying if they had not have sent me such sweet words.
I know god has a plan for me but it is just getting my head to believe my heart!
Well first of all it has been FOREVER since I updated the blog….to all 3 of you who read it…SORRY!
I have been in Houston for work for a month and I didn’t have time to write on here at all.
I have been slacking tremendously on P90X and I am paying for it…..I have promised myself that I am going t get back on it so I will be able to wear a cute swimsuit in the summer and a cute dress to my friend’s wedding in September.
