Bad Luck

I have always been sort of clumsy. There was this one really bad stage when I would stumble over nothing. I would call it weak ankles but it was really just embarrassing clumsiness.

I love my life but I often have weird luck. Random things happen to me. I say crazy stuff sometimes.

On Monday it was raining, that cold dark rain, you know. Anyway, I was wearing flats and a very cute outfit if I may say so myself. Within 1 minute of trudging to work my feet were soaked. Add to that, that then my feet got all slippery inside my shoes. So, as it poured rain I had to walk like an old lady so that I didn't face plant in the front of the Athletic Center full of graceful, fit, young athletes.

The rain came and then left and then came again and all I have to show for it is this lousy almost cold. Grrr!

Woody Weekend

I am smiling as I write this. I just spent a wonderful woodsy weekend with the GCSC (Georgia Christian Student Center) in the N. GA mountains!!!

Being part of a campus ministry again is interesting as I am now "older" haha b/c 25 is older when you are dealing with a college crowd. However, it really is fun and I am learning and reliving a lot. It is another part of this college experience, a very good part.

Nature, time with God, bon- fires, friends, bunk beds, rain, sun, singing, alone time, laughs, deep thoughts, and darkness.

All in all I had a wonderful time. One big thing I took away was I need to be mindful of putting the gifts above the giver because that is modern day idolatry!

 It was SO good to get away from Athens for a bit. It was SO good to be alone with God in nature. It was SO good to sing and discuss God's word with others who are growing in faith. It was SO good to get to meet new friends:) God is SO good to bless me with a weekend filled with SO goods!!

Sunday Thoughts

It's interesting that as I blog more I write in my journal less. I did not start my blog in place of my journal though. Both help me remember important pieces of me. And remembering is a goood thing to do.

I love my Sundays, they pretty much always follow a certain pace and if that pace gets too hectic with other stuff I just stop. So far God has blessed me with like, a little gauge to help me rein in, when "other things" try to crowd my Sunday like they do other days of the week. But I don't really need that gauge too much, b/c believe it or not my vision is better on Sunday and I don't even see too many of the things that would pull me from what my soul desires, which is time with other Christians, time with God, and time with myself.

I seem to think clearer on Sunday, and I think it's because it's the Lord's Day and I try as much as possible to meet with other followers in spirit and in truth. I try to go and learn and soak in what I need to help me through this life.

As I think clearer it has some results. I often come across thoughts that are not surface level on Sunday. I usually take a fake mirror and look inside to see how Sabrina is really doing on Sunday. I always seem to appreciate nature more on the set aside day to go worship the Father. I usually enjoy a peaceful, renewing nap on Sunday too:)

Too many things want my attention sometimes. I freely give myself to too much many times. On Sunday I am at my best balance and that is because it is the day above others when I reaffirm my relationship with my God. I love my life. I am in a different place than I was a year ago, and I will be in a new place this time next year. With all the change that a life brings, I am joyful in my soul that I have my Sundays. And in truth I am joyful and peaceful because it's not really my Sunday at all but God's Day, the Lord's Day and I am just a small piece of the magic!

Do you Pandora?

 There is one website out there that is my go to resource for music. Have you heard of Pandora Radio? It's not new or anything, but I LOVE it.

 It's free, easy to use, free, fun, free, and innovative. See Pandora is like a radio but with a mind. It plays music tailored for you:) Just go here and start your Pandora experience. The sign up is easy and NO hassle.

 You create music stations based on artists that you enjoy. My favs have gotten me through long nights and gatherings with friends. My stations that are always on are Aaron Neville, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Michael Buble.

 Do you have a Pandora Station you love??? Share, I might want to add it to my list.

This will be be brief.
It is so weird. My homesick moments are few and far between but when they come they are like a really hard kick in the gut:( Not a good feeling. I know that I am a person of extremes so it makes since I would get REALLY homesick at random times. 

Mainly though I get homesick for Tallahassee. I love my Jacksonville but I have been gone from there for quite a while. It's Tally that will creep up on me at lonely moments. Sigh!

Melanie is coming for the weekend though so that is GREAT:)

Happy Birthday Baxter!

I cannot let this day pass by without letting the world (or those who will read this) know that today is the
2 year transplant anniversary for Melanie's kidney aka Baxter!!!!!!

Goodness the 2 years have flown. When I think that Melanie is now an FSU Masters graduate and in such good health it floors me. It is one of those things that is just so good, gigantic, and all encompassing that you KNOW it is God.

Her path has not been easy, in fact at times it was the saddest thing I had ever known. But I can say at least for me that the growth that came from that tough soil was amazing. My heart is different, our lives are transformed.

Here's a toast to you little sister. I know that you are waiting on a job and I know that in time it will all work out, but tonight let's just take a minute to look back at a journey that tore some things down but also allowed some much better things to grow in its place. Happy Kidney Anniversary!!! (add in a big hug too!)

Camp Rock 2

Good Grief how can a 25 year old woman who is back in school getting her Masters get sucked into the Camp Rock 2 madness. I will give Disney HUGE and I mean HUGE props for their marketing. I just got done watching the movie and it was pretty good. Catchy songs and enough fun to make a non-camper like me want to sign right up for next summer!

I mean if you know me you know I do not do camping. I like nature in small, clean amounts;) However, that movie had me missing camp fires and bunk beds. I read online that 8 million people watched the Premiere on Friday and Disney has showed it every night since. Very smart I say. I don't know your taste but who knows you just might like Camp Rock 2!

A Weekend

A weekend is a glorious thing. Especially when you spend it...

Traveling to Atlanta

Catching up on sleep

Seeing, dining, and laughing with Tallahassee friends

Hanging out with your sister

Breakfasting with my School Counseling friend

Trying to bring some peace and calm to a house that is going a little crazy with teen angst

Eating a few too many sweets (they were SO good though)

Watching your boys play some great football (Gooooo UGA and FSU!)


Basking in the Fall weather

I hope that everyone had a great weekend and YAY for having Monday off as well:)
