Exciting News

So for all of you who read this..... I wanted to fill you in on a little secret!!!!!

I am officially in a relationship with the best guy EVER!!!!!!!  His name is Casey (pictures will come soon)  We went to high school together but never really hung out or anything.  He played baseball at our high school (which is a HUGE plus for me) and he plays hockey now! 

It's funny though because when we started talking I kept giving him the cold shoulder because I really didn't want to date because I was still hung up on William. But he was persistent and kept telling me to just give him a chance...so I did not thinking I was going to end up liking him but I DID!!!!!  I had several friends tell me that they felt the same way about their husbands when they first started dating.

I have to say Casey is the nicest guy I have ever met.  He treats me like a queen and lets me know constantly how much I mean to him.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the future!!!!

I will keep all of you posted on this!!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Well guys and gals....it's 2011!!!

I cannot tell you all how excited I am to get this new year started and to see what God has in store for me this year!

As most of you know 2010 brought me some good times and some not so good times but I know that all of it came from God.  I got a new job that I am in LOVE with in 2010 and I also made some new friends and lost some (it is what it is).  Over all my year was good!

I have been reading a very good book lately and it has really made me consider what my New Year's Resolution is going to be.  The book is.......
This book has really challenged me to make the ONLY New Year's Resolution I make this year to be to trust God with it ALL!  I'm not making any others that I KNOW I will forget about in 2 days! (i.e. eating better)

2011 Also brings me to a new place at church!  I have returned to the church that I went to before and I love it even more now. Many of you know that I left shortly after our College and Singles minister left and started attending another church.  I loved the church that I went to but I never felt "at home" like I did before.  I went back to find out that they were in the process of starting a new Young Professionals class and our first meeting was yesterday!  Our new teachers are SO passionate about us growing in God and that makes me ecstatic!  I am so ready to see what God is going to do through this!

On the same page, yesterday at church, God really spoke to me like never before.  The praise team was singing and the song spoke straight to me.  It was about letting go and moving forward and I was like "Ok God I get it"  You see, I had really been struggling before about how I let my life get SO out of control just for the sake of having a relationship with a guy!  I felt guilty, ashamed, filthy, etc....You get the picture!  A week before Christmas I tried to get back together with my former boyfriend (William) even though I knew that was a danger zone! (Needless to say we broke up again a few days later)  Anyway, the sermon yesterday was a total God thing because it was not what our pastor had planned to preach on.  It was from Hosea and it was about how God had told Hosea to buy back his wife out of sin and how this related to how God will buy us back out of our sin.  How we are still loved by God no matter how much we mess things up!  I really needed to hear this yesterday!!!  I talked to God and now I am going to focus falling in love with my King and then I know the guy will come...a guy that is first and foremost in love with GOD!!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! God is so awesome and if the way 2011 stared is any indication of what God is going to do in my life the rest of the year.....I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!

Here are the 2 songs that we sang yesterday that are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!
