So, my Facebook Fast has been going pretty good. I feel more freedom and I actually have time for things!

Wendsday started my weekend somewhat.


We lost a dear saint from our congregation. Linda, had cancer for a very long time. She got to see Jesus Wendsday morning. She is free from her body and the pain that she was in. And from what I unerstand she was in terrible pain constantly. She never lost sight of the Lord, who she loves. She gets to spend Easter in Heaven.

I found out about her passing Wendsday afternoon, I left my phone at home on the charger by accident, but it was probably for my benefit because I don’t know how I would have acted if I found out at school.

Maundy Thursday was good. It was just a nice time of reflection.

On Good Friday, instead of a traditional service we held “The Stations of the Cross” is was a “self-leading” tour of the different stages leading up to the crucifixtion (SP?) of Jesus and the later events until He went back to Heaven.

 After that I went to Meijers and bought a couple new shirts and some STUFF (Hannah, would only get that haha.) for the Roy’s house. I made these strawberry thingies with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and a little cookie thing on top. They were very pretty. After we were finished eating we stuffed two totes of Easter Eggs for the next days Easter Egg Hunt.

 Jenni and Stephen were in town. Jenni is due in July (I’m 98% sure!) I got to feel the baby kick! I never felt a baby kick before. It was so cool.

Faith and I ended up going to her room and talking until about midnight when Stephen and Jenni had to go to bed. 

I managed to get this Saturday off (thanks to Lisa who covered my shift, God bless her!) Linda’s funeral was this morning. I thought my last memory of her would be of her telling me how pretty I was the last time I seen her before I died. But I seen her today before her service, the coffin (which was very pretty) was open. She was so pretty! Lance (who works at the funeral home) wouldn’t let anyone else do her make-up. He wanted her to look like Linda (bless his heart!). I thought that was very nice.

After the funeral I went back to the Harris’ house. Amanda cleaned out her car and the kids played.  Then we had the Easter Egg Hunt! I helped my friend Becky with two special needs boys, Frankie and Lawson. I had met Frankie before so I helped more with him. The boys really enjoyed themselves. 🙂

I’m trying to get o the tredmill more. The weight I lost over the summer I’m starting to gain back. 😦 *tear*. But I can do ANYTHING throught Christ who strengthens me! (Phil. 4:13) I need to get this extra weight off if I want to have a healthy life and future! Some of you might disagree with me on my weigh, but FYI I’m very good and hiding it 😉 haha.

But in seriousness here, for a portion of my Senior year of High School I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to have children. I thought I did this to myself, because I had stopped caring what I put in my mouth and gained weight and a rather fast clip, I was feeling rather guilty. Most of you know I love children and would like to have my own someday (after I get a husband,  hey, lets do things in the correct order here 😉  ). So if you hear me talking about this no I’m not going on a “self-image-hating” diet. I think it our responsibilty to care for the bodies that God has intrusted us with. 🙂


Happy Easter!

(hey, sidenote, can you comment or tell me if you read this? i want a head count:P)

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever and not for better
Some are gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With people and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
But in my life, I loved them all
But of all these friends and loved ones
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and friends that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
But in my life I loved you more
Soon we’ll come to the end of life’s journey
And perhaps we’ll never meet anymore
Till we gather in heaven’s bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore
If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There’s another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the beautiful river of life
Where the charming roses bloom forever
And separations come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore
