Sand shifts

The line has been drawn in the sand, the door opened. It is not so dramatic that a fate has been sealed, but still, some decisions you know can change you, and most likely will change you and the way you end up. There are times when a decision has to be made no matter how much it hurts..... But either way I know it should end well because I have a promise. God promises that He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans for hope and a future What would I do without God's promises and love??? :) Amazing!!!
Anywhoo.... I know my posts have been a bit more serious as of late so I am going to try and lighten up a bit :) I can't think of any jokes, so instead I will tell you all some ideas I have for pets names and hope you think they are as amusing as I do :). Okay, so the first one for a pug dog would be pugnacious :D The second would be Matic (as in dogmatic) :D And for a bunny hoppinero (like habanero, just fluffier :D )

Rise up

It breaks my heart to read, hear, and discuss the ways some people have fallen. There is a particular thing (I am not going to say what it is) that keeps popping into my life. First a man that was like a dad to me, then a family members, then a good friend. This thing is like a disease. All those I know who have been infected with it cannot seem to stop. It just breaks my heart and makes me want to scream and cry when I see the thing that has brought them low. This thing seems to hurt everyone it touches. It is uncaring and unfeeling. It leaves those who mess with it craving more yet knowing that more will not satisfy them. These people I love are being devoured. Some of them are fighting, and fighting hard against it, but they slip every now and then. I do not blame them for everyone has something that they do that they wish they didn't. This thing though, I wish I could kill it. To stop all the injustices it causes. To keep people from falling prey to it. Rise up people and pray that God will deliver this nation from her sins. Rise up against sin!
This is a bit different post than I typically do, but I really am broken hearted tonight as I discover what more this thing has taken from me. This monster is a raging volcano that cannot seem to be quenched. It is destroying lives. It has taken away happiness, it had brought good people down very low. This disease must be stopped! Pray for those who are infected, that they will find their cure in Christ and that the monster they are facing will have no appeal to them. Rise up and pray that those who have fallen will rise up themselves and take a stand against this monster. Rise up and fight people!!!!!!

AGH!!! kinda random....

I don't really know what I want to write about tonight. I just know I want to write something!
Well, Easter is almost upon us. YAY! I love Easter. It is such an inspiring time for me for some reason....
I think one of my problems right now is that I want to do to much. Lately I have learned that I have a REALLY hard time saying the word "no" when someone asks me to do something. It is so frustrating. I want to do everything, I feel I can always squeeze in a little bit more here or there! I stretch myself a little too thin sometimes though.... Then I do it again! When someone needs me for something I can't bear to tell them "no" unless it is something I REALLY don't want to do, but I usually say yes to doing those things anyway.. :) I guess I am a sucker for things like that. Though I do start my own projects, some of which turn out being pretty big. I love to volunteer for anything and everything. I love friends, parties, movies, hanging out, reading, shopping, animals, designing, art, flowers, drawing, painting, good causes, baking, cooking...etc... I just love people and I try my hardest to help everyone in most every way I can. There are worse addictions, but I do need to remind myself that no one will kill me if I actually say "no, I am sorry, but I can't".  So much for not knowing what to write about, huh? :)
Have a blessed Easter everyone!!! Remember that it is Christ that whose sacrifice should be remembered during this time! :)
This link is to a song I wrote about a year ago... Nothing special about what I wrote, but I have had it stuck in my head lately and what Christ did for me is such an amazing thing! <3

Well, I am at the end of my Spring semester for this year!!! YAY!!! Classes this semester went pretty well. I made some really good friends. This semester was different though, and in some respects I cannot wait for it to be over! It has been good, yet frustrating, fun yet boring,  exciting yet creepy.... I am still deciding what to think of this semester. I couldn't imagine not being friends with some of the people I am friends with now, but there were some difficult things this semester that I am hoping will be over come the next semester.
Pray that I finish this semester strong and continue to show Christ!
Thank you! And thank you to all of you who prayed me through this semester!

Friends ^_^

Friends are such amazing things. There are so many definitions of friends... There are people I am still getting to know,but I love em and they make me laugh! There are people who I see at school all the time, and we are able to help each other out side of the class room with stuff in the classroom. There are people who are always building me up and encouraging me. There are those I laugh with and those I have cried with. There are so many people that have touched my life or helped me in some way whether it be big or small. There are also those friends that I cannot live without (though if any of my different friends were to disappear I would be VERY unhappy!), the ones that are there for me ALL the time!!!! They love me no matter what, and put up with all of me! I can tell them anything and they will help me to the very best of their ability. Friends truly are a gift from God and I thank Him for all of you!!! :)
