Some friends and I are leaving for the beach Wednesday.  As the beach has been on my mind alot late (okay really since October after we came back), I thought I would let you in on a little law in Tennessee that seems a little odd to me since a larger body of salt water is at least an 8 hour drive from Nashville.

Tennessee State Law: “You can’t shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile.”

I haven’t seen one of these in the TN wild life in a long time. Nashville doesn’t even have one in captivity.

No longer do us women have to work them kegel muscles in nasty restrooms. With the invition of GoGirl the statement that women can do what men do has become a little closer to being true.

Women watch this video and let me know if you would actually buy a GoGirl.

Practice a time or two and it will become second nature? I don’t know if would ever become second nature for me or not.

As a Christian I say I have given my all to Christ, but have I really?

Christ doesn’t want 99.999 (hate to say 63.9) percent of my life. Without giving him everyting of my self I am unable to have everthing of Him.  I haven’t handed over fully the ropes of my life.  Everday I struggle with letting the Lord take complete control over me and my thoughts.

I have to be willing as sooon as my alarm goes off in the mornings to wake up handing the control of the day ovver to God. 

C.S. Lewis said, “All your wishes and hopes fro the day rush at you like wild animals.” Without letting God take contraol of the day as soon as I wake I am leading myself into a poth of destruction for the day. Without handing evertything over to him at that very moment I am setting myself up for a battle between Christ and myself for the rest of the day.

Luke 14:25-33 speaks of “counting the cost.”  Being a Christian there is a cost, even if oes doens’t want to admit it.  As a Christian I struggle giving up instant gratification. There are times that I have to stop and step back for a a moment. Are the things I just for me and me alone? Am I seeking pleasure for just the moment and not consideirng how it will effect me and others in the long run?

What are you struggling with today?

Elmer’s Glue is the all-time best selling glue in America.

Elmer’s has been around since 1960 and if you wherever a child I know you had a bottle (or stick) at some point in your life. 

I had a friend tell me the other day how you can use Elmer’s Glue as Biore Strips to clean out your pours.  A small bottle of Elmer’s cost less than $1, which is allot cheaper than $6 for 12 Biore Strips. I think I might have to try it. This must be fairly popular. There are several videos on YouTube and even found this disclaimer on a webpage.

Elmer’s Glue disclaimer: When using Elmer’s Glue as a beauty treatment, one should make sure they are not allergic to the product. While I don’t know the statistics of “Elmer’s Glue allergy,” there is a chance that someone, somewhere, is allergic to the stuff. Also, I would like to add that when applying glue to your face, it is not advisable to apply glue anywhere near the eyes to prevent the possibly hazardous “Glued Eye Syndrome.” Likewise for the mouth area.

What are some things you do with Elmer’s Glue besides using it for it real purpose?

  

 

 

“But the Lord is in his holy Temple. Let all the earth be silent before him.” Habakkuk 2:20

Today during Backseat Jesus  Pastor Pete spoke about “Whatever we immerse our minds in is what our minds will be full of.”  Day to Day we are feeled with the noise of this world and wonder why we don’t hear God speaking.

What is God saying to Me?

Is God really even saying anything at all?

If so, why can’t I hear him?

It is time for me to move My God that I gave my life to over 18years ago out of the child’s booster seat in the backseat of my car called life up to the front drives seat. Time for me to allow God to have full control of my life and to lead me wherever he wants me to go.  I might even let God drive without his seatbelt on. 😉

I get so wrapped up in the day to day life that I don’t spend time with what should be the most important part of my life.  Yes, I said should be, and I say that with shame. I’ve always heard that we give our time to what matters most to us, and I fully believe that.  I shamefully admit I don’t spend as much quality time with God as I should. I put him on the back burn so many time and then wonder where He is.  It is times for me to put God in front of me.  No longer behind me or beside me, but in front of me.

At the beginning of the year I told myself that I wouldn’t spend time with my friends until I first spent time with my best friend that day.  I wouldn’t hangout with them until I had spent quality time with God.  I come here today and admit I have failed. I have not spent that quality time with him and I miss it.

Starting today I’m holding myself to this once again. God is important in my life and I long to have a deep and intimate relationship with him. I long to hear is voice throughout the day.

Currently my ears are like most of these people in this video during rush hour while the greatest musician, Joshua Bell, is give D.C. Metro stop a free concert.

I want to be the lady at the end of the video. At the end of my life I want to be able to walk up to Jesus and thank him. Thank him for the wonderful concert he has given me here on earth.

So I have a few questions for you…

While watching the video did you watch it completely without doing anything else and did you catch what the lady said at the end? It is okay if you didn’t.  I lots of time doing alot of different things while I’m flipping through all of your blogs. 🙂

What is your time with God like?

What have you found that helps you find that time?

I just arrived back from a short trip to Kentucky. This was the first trip back to my home town since the ice storm in January.  Family survived it all and is doing much better.

When I got off the interstate I just started crying. The town that I was raised in looked like a war zone. No one could have ever prepared me for what I saw. It has been over a month and a half and to me it looked no one had done anything.

Here are some pictures I captured today before I left.

All of this makes great firewood for fire pits.

Jes has a created a great little fire pit for all her friends to gather around and enjoy on Friday and Saturday nights.

So I decided to do what any good friend would do…load my trunk up with free firewood.

This should last us awhile.

What are something you are looking forward to with warm weather knocking at the door?

What better way to start the week of by learning a little fact about your office desk…

The average office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet.

Well, I know what I’m doing first thing this morning when I get to the office.

Happy Monday!!! 🙂

Last week I began seeing March Flowers (a.k.a. daffodils) start popping up around town.  I have always loved them, maybe just because that is the first sign of spring and after a few months of dead winter I’m ready for spring to bloom. 

Here in Nashville, we had a nice snow fall on the first day of March.  Watching the snowflakes fall I was reminded of my grandmother saying she never saw a March Flower without a snowflake.  After listening to my grandmother tell me this so many times as a child, I still wait patiently after seeing the first March Flower for a flurry or two.

GrandGrand reminded me today that it isn’t quite spring yet. 

I love you and miss you.
