Help A Sistah Out

Hopefully this will one day be a full-fledged organization. Until then, check out the blog and "write" if you can. Either way, PRAY! Thanks!

Your Prayers Are Appreciated

I'll be leaving out of town on Friday about 6 and returning Sunday around midnight. In my time away from Dallas I will be doing two important things. First, I will be helping to brainstorm plans for the annual Girls' Retreat. I didn't get to do much for it last year as the meetings were always much too far from home so I'm really looking forward to this meeting. Second, I'll be helping out two others with a confirmation retreat for a small town. Please pray for our safety in traveling and for the wisdom of God to put into our hearts --- and that we recognize it!

Thanks in advance, friends. :)

I'm a nut... in a rut...

... I'm crazy!

You Are A Peanut

You are popular, even with people who tend to have picky taste.

Kids love you, as do dogs. From rednecks to snobs, most people have a place for you in their hearts.

As popular as you are, there are some people who can't be near you.

Don't take it too personally. There's just a few people you rub the wrong way.

Via my ever-friendly, easy-going pal, Julie D.

To Do

For so long I've had a mental list of things I want to do. Some things are big and some things are small. All the 'things' have one thing in common: I've yet to do them! I think it's time I start getting 'em down "on paper"... maybe then I'll be able to really SEE what I have planned for me... all the things I want to do and places I want to see... and can get to doing them. I'm tired of waiting for life to happen. I've gotta go GET IT... and this is how I want to do that. (The list may be short at first just because I want it to be GOOD and what I really want to do/learn. Please be patient with me!)

1. Learn to play the piano
2. Learn to play the guitar (more than p&w chords)
3. Get an SLR and start improving my photog skills
4. Learn to cook fish
5. Learn to knit
6. Improve sewing skills
7. Build a bookcase
8. Build a bed
9. Keep up with the "Happy Book"
10. Visit host family in Montreal
11. Skydive
12. Run a marathon
13. Ride in something like the MS 150
14. Rome/Assisi pilgrimage
15. Learn to snowboard (well)
16. ...

This is all I have for now. I'm sure more will come later.
