Times of Refreshing

Since I know all our girls (Breigh and Hannah particularly) are just dying to see Elizabeths' website.. here's the link:

And yes, this is probably in itty bitty type now but I can't figure out how to make it normal size again!! Anyway, I looked at her pictures, and they're very good! I like them a lot! She's not afraid to get "on your level" to get an interesting picture.
I don't think any of us could put on paper all the things that have been stirred up in us this weekend. We've had a concentrated amount of fellowship with many that we haven't seen for ages, and some we've never even met before - from our church body and from across America. Usually at corporate events there's never enough time to see everyone and catch up before you have to leave. This meeting was long overdue, yet perfectly timed. There was an ongoing count of how many times Bro. David, or Bro. Teryl, or Bro. Danny repeated things that we've said throughout the week. We stopped counting when it just got ridiculous. I'm not so sure we set the best example for our bible study girls when we kept giggling and grinning at each other! Penny got it right when she hugged me and said "God is so good!!"
Like I said, I couldn't even try to download onto paper everything that's come into the light for me this weekend right now. My head (and heart) is spinning with it all. Maybe I'll try this week at work, which will probably result in a very long blog post. You cannot say you weren't forewarned.
Love ya'll!

A Simple Amen

We shall draw nearer to God not by trying to avoid the sufferings inherent in all loves, but by accepting them and offering them to Him; throwing away all defensive armor. If our hearts need to be broken and He chooses this as a way in which they should break, so be it.

So be it. Three words that I never thought would be so hard to say.

I can't count how many times I've said this over the past 48 hours but I really don't know what else to say right now. At least here.. What I do know is that when God wants my attention He gets it. And when He wants to tell me something He finds about 10 different ways to get it through my thick skull. Apparently my hearing isn't so good. Lauren thinks it's funny.. ;)

8 paperclips and one document… my gosh people.

I probably have to work tomorrow.

Paperclip OCD

Here at my job we use paperclips - never staples. I'm using them constantly. I have a little cup for small paperclips, and a cup for big/colored ones. I think you could say I'm discriminating. I don't like big paperclips unless I absolutely need one. You know, the ones with the thicker metal? I hate it when people use those on documents that are too large for them, because they're so stiff they stretch out and end up not holding anything. A large document calls for one of the actual "clip" paperclips. I don't like the colored paperclips either. They stretch out too easy and they don't stay on the paper as well. My biggest pet peeve right now? People who use FIVE paperclips on one document (no exaggeration, just emphasis)! It's as though they think they'll get more "points" for using the most paperclips possible. Something else is that some people clip on the top of the page, and others on the side. Why can't we just do it one uniform way? I realize this may be far fetched, but it's always bugged me, I just never mentioned it. One of my co-workers collects unique paperclips. Every time she gets a new one she takes it on a tour around the office saying "Look at my new baby!" So you know I'm not the only one who's obsessed. She's just on the other end of the spectrum.

As you can see, I have not forgotten my blog entirely. I've written many posts in my thoughts, though all of them are coupled with photos that have yet to be taken, so for that reason I have delayed. I want to show you all my new things, for I have quite a few of them. New car, new hair, new phone, new baby kitties - that Amber will attest are just too precious! As I've been enjoying all my new things it's made me ponder of the newness of life that Christ brings. I've also noticed that while I enjoy change around me and relish in it, I despise change within myself, and I want that to change. But that's for another post.
