"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

Proverbs....dog barf.. finding myself & a thank you..

ok rough title.. i know...
but sometimes the way I feel cant be described any other way.......

i was listening to brad paisley tonight...
the song....
find myself.....

When you find yourself
In some far off place,
And it causes you
To rethink some things.
You start to sense
That slowly you’re becoming someone else
And then you find yourself.

When you make new friends
In a brand new town,
And you start to think
About settling down,
The things that would have been lost on you
Are now clear as a bell.
And you find yourself
That’s when you find yourself.

When you go through life
So sure of where you’re heading,
And you wind up lost
And it’s the best thing that could happen.
‘Cause sometimes when you lose your way
It’s really just as well.
‘Cause you find yourself;
That when you find yourself.

When you meet the one
You’ve been waiting for,
And she’s everything
That you want and more,
You look at her
And you finally start
To live for someone else.
And then you find yourself;
That’s when you find yourself.

We go though life
So sure of where we’re heading,
And then we wind up lost
And it’s the best thing that could happen.
Sometimes when you lose your way
It’s really just as well.
Because you find yourself;
Yeah that’s when you find yourself.


Honestly.. this part

When you go through life
So sure of where you’re heading,
And you wind up lost
And it’s the best thing that could happen.
‘Cause sometimes when you lose your way
It’s really just as well.
‘Cause you find yourself;
That when you find yourself.



yep... ok God... I get it.

:)
do you ever wonder if he is just laughing at us? At our trials and the way we handle them?
I wonder sometimes.........

Proverbs 26:11

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
Like a dog that returns to its vomit Is a fool who repeats his folly.

Why is it that we as humans want to replay so many things? Why is it that we want to rehash... replay things over and over again... and then be ok with it....and yet go back for more?

I am Beyond so many things these days and yet am hurt still by so many...

i read their blogs...
i watch their work...
i worry for them..
i miss them..
i cry for them...

and they have hurt me most of all... but I go back.. time and time again and I have no one to blame but me.

Im working on it... I am....

the google reader is getting shorter and shorter........day by day......blog by blog


right?

i am....
finding myself.

Some things are all in the way we view them.........

she is adorable right?

step back and she is surrounded by laundry............

eeeekkkkkkkkk.....
Photobucket

I am starting to understand.... to view it differently......sometimes that means black and white.....
Photobucket

life is so much like that... in the way that we view it.. in the colors we choose to see... in the songs we choose to hear...

we determine our paths.. we choose the page.....

Remember the choose your own adventure books when we were kids......... you'd read a page or two and then you had a choice.

pg 24 the princess gets to..............
pg 49 the princess gets to..............

i was a dork
i choose pg 24 finished the story and then went back to page 49 just to make sure that I had chosen the correct ending.......

if only life were as simple right?

my birthday present came from my best friend tonight........

in the form of a beautiful new bible.

i am humbled..
i am in awe..
and I am forever thankful.

for the gift, and for her.

She is the one that I want to call when I am happy, when I am sad and when well...


when the world feels like dog barf.


i honestly cant thank her enough....




i just love her so.

God is good; life is hard. --Alistair Begg
