It's been awhile since I put my prayers on this blog. So from my "Young Maiden Prayer Book"

Abba, For reasons I don't know you choose me, you love me and cared for me. I am a filthy human being and amazed that you still love me and want to spend time with me. Thank you for everything. I love you and want to live, serve and be obedient to you. Transform me into what you want me to be. Claim my terror and give me peace. I surrender all to you, take control because I have no idea what I am doing. I pray that I wont compromise anything for you. That my life would bring glory, honor, and blessing to Your name. And when that day come, when I am in front of you I will be easily recognize by You. My life is like grass that withers away, here one moment and gone the next. Help me to remember that, that I wont waste time. But my life would be to please you.

Falling in love with the Christian group Mercy Me music

My favorite is "God With Us"

Who are we that You would be mindful of us what do You see that's worth looking our way we are free in ways that we never should be sweet release from the grip of these chains like hinges straining from the weight my heart no longer can keep from singing.

all that is within me cries for You alone be glorified Emmanuel God with us my heart sings a brand new song the debt is paid these chains are gone Emmanuel God with us.

Lord You know our hearts don't deserve Your glory still You show a love we cannot afford like hinges straining from the weight my heart no longer can keep from singing. [back to chorus]

Such a tiny offering compared to Calvary nevertheless way law it at your feet.

Since I don't know how to upload videos here is the link:

Back to College!!!!

I just want to first start off this post just thanking God, for another school year and helping my mom pay for college. Today was the first day of classes and it was so exciting. I am a Social Work major so I am taking Intro into Social Work Profession also including, Spanish, New Testament, Info. Literacy, World Civ. 2, and Human Biology. I am so excited about Spanish and NT.

An interesting thing happen today in my New Testament class, we talk about 1Tim 2:16 (I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.) And MAN!!!, I must say you should have seen the faces of the girls and heard the response from them. They were surprise that the Bible would say that women cannot teach (pastor) in the church or even have authority over men. But I kind of knew that people in my class would respond the way they did because many of those ladies don't know the roles God has given us as women. So many people look at that verse and say "well that verse is old". But I differ with that comment. I know what God calls His women to be and in saying that I see NOTHING WRONG with me as a wife and mother (soon too be, God willing) staying home teaching my children and being a helper to my husband. I ABSOLUTELY love my role as a woman. What an honor!!!!

Here is the sunrise outside my window the morning (nothing like waking up early to spend time with the Lord and looking outside seeing a beautiful sunrise.

Side Note: I am so sorry that I have not been updating my blog, please forgive me. Look forward for the following:
"Godly Women from The Past" post to come (3 post to go!!!)
