Hello from rainy weather . . .

It looks like it might rain outside . . . Thank you God! Texas needs some rain. However, the rainy weather is not helping my grueling fight to stay in a possitve mood. My luck has been less than stellar as of late. On the other hand, I have faith that God will reveal his plans in time. While i'm waiting I guess I will just have to enjoy the rain :)

Hello from . . . regrouping

After a loooong weekend I can't wait to get back into a normal routine. Go to work, spend time with my friends, and just normal sleeping habits. I do well when I have a routine. I like structure.
I can't figure out where I want to be in the fall though; Lubbock or Austin? I've made a life here in Lubbock but, I miss my family and life in Austin. We will see I guess . . .

Hello from . . . I woke up early to think.

I had some wine last night and sometimes when I have a drink or two I wake up really early for no good reason. This morning I woke up at 6 a.m. and I figured I should just start my day then, so I wrote out intructions for a good friend on operating her blog while she is away helping others and without a phone. I listened to the song that she had my attach to her blogsite and really got to thinking about God and life, anyway, I found this while I was thinking and thought I should share it.

"Times change. God doesn’t, but times do. We learn and grow, and the world around us shifts, and the Christian faith is alive only when it is listening, morphing, innovating, letting go of whatever has gotten in the way of Jesus and embracing whatever will help us be more and more the people God wants us to be."
— Rob Bell

This is a quote from the next book on my list to read, it's called Velvet Elvis. I'm excited!

Hello from . . . healing & love

I'm sitting in bed with one of the most wonderful people I know, just talking about life. And as I am reading emails & laughing with her about a long time ago . . . I feel contentment; I haven't felt that in a long time. I am so wrapped up in all the busy things I have during my weekdays & it's just so nice to wake up and relax in the morning with fewer worries than yesterday, even if it's just one less. I am so blessed & lucky to have friends like mine.

Hello from . . . a morning movie & domestic dreams

This morning I rented Life As We Know It & it was pretty sad but very sweet. However, I'm in LOVE with the house used in this movie. If I could settle down in a house like this one I think I would be living the pottery barn inspired life.

Hello from . . . finally FRIDAY!

Oh Friday & it's April first . . . my mother got me good. She posted a status on her face book as well as a comment on my page including her plans to move to Italy, (totally something my parents would do) and I freaked out. But then I remembered that it is April Fools Day! I felt dumb. Anyway, I'm happy to say that I'm ending my day and starting off my evening with a glass of wine and my most favorite movie, The Romantics. Perfect.
