I feel like I don't even have time to sleep, when I try to I just start thinking about all the things I need to do.
Let me just list a few;
-get money for Africa and AR trips (about 2,500 total)
-get shots (I'm nervous about this, I have NEVR had shots before.....)
-mail out a letter
-work (even though I know that I won't be here much makes it kinda hard)
-my passport (I have this fear that it won't get here on time)

And that is just out of the ordinary, I have all my regular stuff at home, and I don't have a free weekend until after I get back from Africa!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to keep reminding my-self that the reason I'm doing this is to get closer to God, and running around like a chicken with its head cut off, while completely ignoreing Him. Is not helping to achieve that purpose. So I keep trying to make time for Him, but...........

And, I want to spend more time with my family because I'm gonna be gone so much this summer. But I'm trying not to think about that, I'm going to get SO homesick.

I am looking forward to this weekend though, my dad is taking me to a concert at Frontier City, Wavorly, needtobreathe, and Thousand Foot Krutch, I'm excited!

Please pray for me, that everything will fall into place, that I will see God work, and that my faith will be strengthened. Thanks for listening........

Tick Tock

tick tock tick tock tick tock.......................
Why is most of our lives about waiting? I was just thinking that I only have an hour left 'til I can go home, and I'm just watching the clock.
I do this every day for all kinds of things, I wait.
It seems like there could be a better use of my time, but what? Its not like I don't WANT to be doing nothing, I just don't have anything else to do, but wait on whatever I'm waiting on. GRRRR! :)
Any suggestions?

So, last weekend I went to a family reunion, well kind of, it was just for ladies. We rented a few cabins and just spent the weekend getting to know each other more. I had fun, even though I had the flu ALL weekend.
Anyways, while we were there, my mom sister and I, I just realized how blessed we were to have a such a godly family, MOST of them were Christians, in fact I don't know who was not. I know that this is unusual, its somewhat like that on my dad's side, though not to the same extreme. But I am So thankful that I was born into such a Godly family, and that I have such a heritage.
Oh, and through some different things....I'm thinking about, praying about, maybe going on the Africa mission trip. I REALLY wanted to go, and then I KNEW I was not going to go, and then some things happened. So, I need prayer, it would take a miracle to go now, getting a passport and raising the money. But God is big.....................
Be Free.
