"Someone You Know" by Further Seems Forever

Want to hear an awesome story from my night which I attribute to my God?!

I was trying to think of a song tonight -- I said to Bec, "I used to just BURST OUT singing the chorus -- I think it repeats one phrase three times ... I can't think of it! Do you know what it was?" She didn't.

I got on the Internet, tried to figure it out that way. But didn't.

Said to my Lord, "God, could you please just put it in my head?"

Probably within three seconds, in my head were the lyrics, "Ready, ready, ready when You are"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dropped to the floor -- I almost started crying! How overwhelming to be answered SO QUICKLY! I think it was God who zapped those into my mind -- what a fun blessing!

He is so awesome!! SO AWESOME. SO. AWESOME.

For your further enjoyment, you may listen to the song here. Blessings!!!

... for Acquire the Fire and for softened hearts.
... that the Lord would reveal Himself even more to His children through ATF and the activities.
... that He would be preparing the hearts of those who will be attending.
... that people who hear the Gospel for the first time this weekend would be responsive.
... that the prayers new followers pray would be real and take root in CHRIST and not emotions.
... for Meadow Park's youth group, that they can love each other noticeably and be good examples to other youth groups of the way the Body of Christ should function.
... that Whit, Ash, Pete, I, and the other leaders will be good leaders, fun, and pointing the teens to Christ Jesus continually, and that we will love as Jesus loves.

Lord God, let this weekend be about You and let us get wrapped up in You and not emotions. Thank You for giving us emotions and thank You that You can work through them. Thank You for being our Solid Rock, our unchanging God. How we love You! More of You; less of us.

Just Past Midnight

Um, did I mention that I slept about 14 hours already?

Yeah, so here I am ... I've been lying awake in bed for about a half an hour or so. I'm wide awake. Hey -- raunch-nasty: I just grabbed a cup from my desk and put water in it. Apparently, there was MILK in it before, so I just drank about half a glass of very cloudy water. Yummy.


Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name.

Father God, rescue Your daughter again.

Manic Monday!

oh goodness.

i slept about 14 hours.

talked to brice tonight; that was good.

talked to linda too. that was good too.

Friday on My Mind

It's me. Again. Of course.

I am soooooo glad this work week is over. Oh my goodness, can I do more things wrong in one week?

Tonight we got Pizza Hut and watched a movie where Keanu Reeves does bad acting (um, every movie of his?). Anyway, I am exhausted. So exhausted. It's not even 10pm, and I'm thinkin' of bed.

Whitty and Heebs visited me this morning; that was good. I'm so glad God had Whit and Hannah put together in the same room. Thank You, Lord! Talked to eir on my lunch break, and Mel came by in the afternoon.

I sure hope that Founders' Week is over. I am jealous. Hahaha.

I can't wait to see the Rochester children of the corn next weekend! Yeah, ATF. I don't feel ready for Acquire the Fire. I feel I need to sleep and pray for a week first. God, bless next weekend. This one too!

Goodnight, loves. I think I might read or write.

wednesday's child

highlights of today:
HALLELUJAH for the NRCCUA gals, Mary and Dianna, and for the Christian Connector's Thom Seagren, for saving my butt with our work card decks. that might not have made sense, but anyway, i'm grateful to them.

youth group tonight ... went to New Life Family Services and saw Christy's baby on an ultrasound. awesome!

on the way home, um, we got lost. picture this: me, alyssa angelo, lindsey angelo, and london allen, LOST, headed out of Mpls. Duh. Alyssa and London are, like, throwing stuff at each other, London is yelling at people out the window, and Lindsey is giving London wet willies from the backseat. Did I mention we're lost? So anyway, it was overwhelming. Ahhh, a taste of motherhood.

BUT get this: i got them all (ALL, including London) to sing the "Seatbelt On" song, which i taught them. HOW did I teach them it within chaos? Just trust me. It was AMAZING. Hahahaha.

And this is what Andy said to me tonight, "
and i decided to totally give my life, no more of this half crap, being fake, stuff anymore, i'm totally addicted, yes i'm an addict, and proud of it, Jesus man"


Oh, I love kids. Pray for me. I'm still overwhelmed. The "Seatbelt On" song (and belting out Relient K songs with L, L, and A) was pretty much worth it though.

Ok, I'm out. Do I have roommates? I think I went shopping with them on Grand last Saturday, but I haven't really seen them since. Well, ok, I've gone to Target with biz about 80 times, but whatev. And ate supp with trix. Nevermind me.

Another question: what happens during Moody's Founders' Week? I think they lock the students up for a whole week and don't let them talk to their friends. ;-) JK. But I do miss eir.

Love you guys. Bedtime. It's not even 10. I want to spend time with the Word though.
