Last night our youth went to an associational youth event. The Lord moved and began healing so many young people last night and I believe a lot of it started with this video. I couldn't get it to post on here but if you go to and search all of me. It is the first video to pop up and it is powerful. It was a beautiful visual of how Jesus protects us. I hope you can watch you want regret it.

New Beginnings

In November I received a promotion at North Greenville. Now, I plan events and campus visits for our office. :)

Saturday was my first event. I had planned for weeks. I always have a check list and I felt like Santa checking it over and over. Finally the day came and I was as nervous as ever with 74 prospective students and their families visiting our campus enjoying a schedule I had set up. Well, at the end of the first part of the program I was still scared to death. When I get nervous/scared I get the worst breath...this I am sure you want to know about here I am scared to death, bad breath and all. The last protion was praise and worship and the last song was My chains are gone. On the first cord of Amazing grace the sun began streaming through the stain glass windows and knew Christ was smiling. I realized it didn't matter as long as He was glorified. The rest of the day was smooth as silk and I came home happy and blessed. :) I am so thankful that my God showed up and showed out.

On another note, Adam and I have been discussing life changing decisions. This morning I was drying my hair thinking how different our life could be in a year (ie- new home, possible children) I made a commentment to myself right then in my pink panties that for the next year I will make certain that my marriage will be thrilling and fun. I don't want to look back when I can't roam in my unmentionables that I didn't take advantage of that time alone with my husband. (wink wink)

I am excited about what the Lord has in store for us. My sister is growing in His grace and love daily and I am excited about what He has planned for my parents. I long for my life to show His love daily and I feel that I fall short at home, at work, and church all the time. I long for Adam to always feel my love and support. I want him to leave home longing to come back to his humble, gentle, hot wife. I long to give Christ all that I can uselfishly, daily.

This is why, since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I never stop giving thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17 [I pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, [h] would give you a spirit (W) of wisdom and revelation (X) in the knowledge of Him. 18 [I pray] that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope (Y) of His calling, (Z) what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power (AA) to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength. Ephesians 1:15-19

fav things

Following all the fun everyone else claimed this weekend, I thought I would do the same.
1) Valentine's-not big on this day but it was fabulous with my Adam anyway.

2) Winterjam- we had a great time at Winterjam seeing Skillet (which I loved), Barlow Girl, Mercy Me, and others. Altough it was completely hectic getting in the door it was a blast once we were inside.

3) Sleeping in Saturday morning. Enough said.

4) PS- I love you. Adam took me to see this movie at the dollar movie. It was actually very good and made me think about my marriage and seizing each day with my husband. Adam even liked it. Bring a tissue. I cried from beginning to end...not sure why but I did.

5) Valentine's banquet at church- our pastor and his family impersonated Glady's Knight and the Pipps (not sure about spelling), the Blues brothers, Elvis, Ray Charles, Patsy CLine, and others. They were great and Adam and I had great time with his Mom and Step dad.

6) A nap on Sunday was a great way to end a great weekend.I am so thankful for the rest and reflection that this weekend seemed to bring. It seemed that we all near and far needed it!

1. Filling the car with gas. $42
2. Hotel in Charleston-$150.00 a night
3. Joining hotel rooms with 9 Hoppers-PRICELESS!

This weekend was Caroline and Ben's wedding. We had a wonderful weekend with the family. The most interesting part was the hotel rooms. Lets put it this way-everytime things got quiet Sandra would come in the room to create a racus-Adam would then look at me and say as if he didn't know-we have ajoining rooms. It was great! If only I could share all the quotes from the weekend. Our favorite is "shhh Terry doesn't know"

The wedding day was beautiful and sad all wrapped into one. Caroline and I are so close and I just couldn't wrap my mind around her getting married. They are in love and I am happy for them. I love the picture of Claudia and Jackie praying over Caroline and the marriage. It brought me such joy to be apart of this day.

I wish I could share all the details but I hope a few pics will help you see the fun we had.
