Less than a week left until [RE]volution YOU is released as an e-book! I’m so excited to share this with you all so soon!
Hello! How was your weekend? Great? Mine was better than great. Why? Because I got baptized on Saturday night at Gateway Church! It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for quite awhile, but just never took the opportunity to do until this weekend. And what’s more, my husband, James, was able to be the one to do it! It was so amazing to be able to share this experience with him – it is something I will definitely never forget!
Quite honestly I had a long list of excuses and reasons not to get baptized in my head, but I finally decided to ignore those negative thoughts and [quite literally] take the plunge! Baptism isn’t a means for salvation – that only comes through a personal relationship with Christ – but it is so very important to living a Christian lifestyle.
Hello! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday so far. Can you believe it’s April already? Craziness I tell you. Did you all have a wonderful Easter? James and I ended up going to church on Saturday night instead of Sunday morning–Gateway Church can get really busy on Easter Sunday–and we both really enjoyed the service. It was strange not being in Michigan for Easter with family, but overall we had a great day!
Throughout the days leading up to Easter last week I read Matthew’s account of what happened on those days so very long ago. It was awesome to read what Jesus was going through during those days, and what he ultimately did for us in dying on the cross for our sins. One verse in particular stuck out to me as I was reading…
“He went a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
Hello! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday so far. It has been a busy couple of weeks around here lately, and time has really flown! I can’t believe we are already at the end of March…craziness I tell you. Last weekend the temperatures were in the low 80’s, so James and I met up with some friends in Grapevine to walk around the historic downtown area. We had a great time poking into all the little shops, and were even able to watch a ‘glass blowing’ demonstration [a really cool form of art where the artists actually sculpt hot glass by blowing into it and molding it into different shapes—very neat]. On Sunday James’ sister was in town on her way back from a missions trip, so we were able to spend the afternoon catching up with her. It was so great to see her! Overall I am enjoying Texas, but I definitely miss being close to our families.
In other news—last week I found out that I am going to be starting a new job this coming Monday! I have loved working at Starbucks, but I will be moving on to something that is a bit closer to my chosen career path—I am going to be working in the marketing department at Daystar Television Network! I’m a little nervous to start, but also very excited! But don’t worry—I’m not going anywhere. I am still going to be posting regularly here on the blog, and am still going to be making some improvements in the very near future—so stay tuned!
Hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? Mines been a little crazy with work, but overall pretty good! It was an early morning, but now I have the rest of the afternoon to get some stuff done around the house [and hang out with Samson] which is always a good thing:)
I wanted to share something I read from Psalms the other day. I’m sure you’ve probably heard it before, but sometimes you can gain new insight from rereading scriptures you’ve read countless times—it happens to me all the time!
“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
If you’re anything like me, sometimes you forget to think before you speak. Or maybe think something about a certain person or situation—maybe you don’t voice your opinion, but those thoughts are still there inside your head. It’s not like I do this constantly, but, you know, sometimes you just have a moment of frustration. Know what I mean?
