It's freezing here!!!!!

Please let it snow. I'm going to wear my lucky "let it snow" socks. That should do the trick. Here's a quick picture of those fuzzy delights:

Conflicting smells

The smell of flowers and cologne fill my room bringing confusion and uncertainty.

Be patient
Be patient
Be patient

One has to go eventually.

Mystery Solved

I received these beautiful flowers today with a note that said:
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

It was very sweet. So i called my dad and said thanks for the flowers and he had no idea what I was talking about. Weird. Then I asked my sister if she had sent them. She didn't either. Last option was David-which would have been unexpected. I decided to leave it as a mystery....

Yeah right- I had my roommate find out for me :) they were from David as an encouragement. He is a sweet man that's for sure. I am thankful for him and the encouragement he gives me.

pretty flowers are a pick me up to any day.

The end.

I have a close friend who is going through alot of tough stuff lately. It hurts my heart that she is hurting so much. I need to be more disciplined to pray for her, because I know she needs the prayer. I need to be more of a friend and helper to her as well. Tough stuff is going down in every part of the world, yet God still takes an interest in our particular struggles. What a great God we serve. He is so worthy of our obedience and faithfulness to Him. Hard things that others go through make me feel smaller. It's humbling. How grateful I am to the Lord for Hid abundant blessing and His faithfulness to us, even though we stray. Glory be to God.

It's a vest day

Sportin the vest yes I am.

New piercings should be a bi, if not tri yearly event.

Who would've thought you could get a piercing for $5? Well it's true. Jackson, Tn's local walmart folks. That's where it's at.

Grand total of my ear piercings: 6

Addiction? Possibly.
Am I swayed by my friends to act impulsively on occasion? Most definitely.

This is the sounds that's made...

No one ever told me
It would come to this
What began with such a promise
Would end with such a twist

I lean into the whisper
But I don't hear a thing

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

This is the sound that made
When a heart breaks

Everybody's laughing
Maybe that's just me
Does something unrequited
Mean it will never be

I lean into the whisper
But I don't hear a thing

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

This is the sound that made
When a heart breaks

Please don't leave me here

Life, for now, I've come to fear
You've dropped me off and left me here
With nothing here to find my way
But the lights you take as you pull away

Far ahead the brush is moving
There's others here and good is proving
Nothing's wrong, it's in my mind
Nothing's wrong and I'll be find

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

just want to hear from him.

Yesterday everything changed

I did something yesterday that I didn't want to do or go through but I knew I needed to. I'm praying and hoping that the Lord knows my heart and will graciously give me what I desire. I truly truly care about this boy and cannot imagine my life without him. Today was my first day without him and I was thinking about him more than ever. He consumes my thoughts, my prayers, my daily life. I miss him. So much. But I know that the Lord is a true and good God. He makes all things work together for good for those who love Him. And I know that my version of good might not be the same as His, but I also know that He knows how I feel about him and listens to my cries as I feel like my heart is breaking. I hope that this break will be a quick but very good growing time for the both of us. I want to be with him so bad. I just know that right now I'm not the girl he needs or deserves. He needs someone great, who loves him unconditionally with no hesitations. I hope to be that girl soon. I want to be that girl soon. I want to care for him and be the kind of woman he can't live without. We're going to figure this out; I know it. Until then I will continue to seek wisdom and the Lord's help. I will continue to pray for him and for myself. I will continue to miss him constantly and long to see him. I will continue to type a text and then not send it. I will continue to be reminded of him every place I go and in every song I hear. I will continue to force myself to give him space as to not hurt him anymore than I have. I will continue to like him, so so much. Until we're back again. Lord willing. I pray for him. I wait for him. I grow for him.

can't do this.

The kids were having tons of fun today.

But me....not so much

Yesterday: My car died because the battery was bad. So I got a new battery.

Today: My car died because my transmission was screwed up. So someone came and towed it. And it's in the shop.

I am very sad and frustrated that I own crap things. So is life.

Word to the wise:

Don't go 3,000 over the due date before you get an oil change. It's bad for your car.
