Fall is here and I am enjoying it. I love the cool, brisk mornings, the cool night. I love everything about fall.

This past weekend at home Lynnette decided to take a few pictures of the kids. Here are some of my favorite.

Until next time

A random mixture of things

Since I posted last there has been a number of things that have happened.

  1. Decide late one Saturday night I was going home for Sunday.
  2. Power Outage in Cincinnati - I missed all of it
  3. Never lost power
  4. Spent a week at home
  5. Was able to work while at home
  6. Family came to my parents house due to the power outage
  7. Went to King's Island with youth group, Pastor Chip, and Nichole
  8. Went to a school picnic and hung out with friends :D
  9. Did lots of homework
  10. Spent some quality time with a few close friends
There's more that happen but its late and I can't remember it all.

I greatly enjoyed my time at home. Was able to work and God provided for me unexpectedly and far surpassed what I needed. He is amazing? I love him so much!

Went boating with some friends and learned that I can row a boat! Last time I went the guys wouldn't let the girls for some stupid reasons. This time it was all girls and we managed quite well.

Randomly walked about the campus with a friend tonight. Funny the things that you see when you are watching people. People make me laugh.

Life is busy, haven't died yet, so I'm good.

I bought a hat, two actually, while in New Mexico and I love it. We stop at Cline's Corners, which is an awesome place, and I had help picking out this hat. According to Jon almost everyone buys a hat there. I was against buying the hat, but after I put it on I knew I had to buy it. In the process of finding the perfect hat I had a very helpful person. The only two condition were it had to be brown, and have the braided part around it like everyone else. I must say I LOVE my hat now and its so comfortable. Yes, I know, I've been informed many time that I'm not the "hat" type of person, but I do love hats!

Okay so its not the best picture of my hat, but u see the general idea of it. It really is better than it looks on here.

Well, I have just a few work sheets left that are due tomorrow. I'm going to finish them and then off to bed...

Until next time

I will praise you still

Another week of school is complete. I'm very thankful that the weekend is finally here. I will be working most of the weekend, but I'm ready for the small break that I will be getting.

It's raining, which makes me sleepy and unmotivated to do anything. I should be giving my homework 100 percent of my attention but.....I'm not.

Today in chapel we sang the song Worthy of Worship. I like the whole song but especially the last verse.

Worthy of worship, worthy of praise,
Worthy of honour and glory,
Worthy of all the glad songs we can see,
Worthy of all of the offerings we bring
You are worthy, father, creator,
You are worthy, saviour, sustainer,
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful,
Worthy of worship and praise,

Worthy of rev'rence, worthy of fear,
Worthy of love and devotion,
Worthy of bowing and bending of knees,
Worthy of all this and added to these,
You are worthy, father, creator,
You are worthy, saviour, sustainer,
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful,
Wor-thy of worship and-

Praise! Almighty Father, master and Lord,
King of all Kings and redeemer,
Wonderful counselor comforter friend,
Saviour and source of our life without end.
You are worthy, father, creator,
You are worthy, saviour, sustainer,
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful,
Worthy of worship and praise

I'm thankful even though I don't see why things are happening, that God still loves me and know everything that is going on. The past couple of weeks have been very hard for me, but I know God is with me every step of the way. He deserves my praise no matter what is going on.

I'm learning how to pray more. I don't understand but I know that God's will, WILL be done in my life no matter the outcome. My plans if they don't meet up to God's are nothing. I'm sure I'll be able to look back and see the good out of this situation.

Well, today was a long day and its finally over. Praise the Lord!
Tomorrow I get to sleep in and spend the morning with a dear friend doing lots of homework.

I'm starting to ramble...

Must be a lesson that I needed to relearn.

Prayer is a vital part of my everyday life but especially with my spiritual life.

A lesson that I'm glad I'm relearning.

Time taken to tarry before God until one is filled with the Holy Spirit is never wasted time. Oh, how true this is.

Homework finished! Ahead in almost everything!

Now its time for my reward : SLEEP :)

Goodnight all,

Labor Day Weekend Events

So this past weekend was a lot of fun! Saturday Vince, Elisabeth, Jon, Tyler, Tony, Theresa, Esther, and myself went to a Renaissance Festival. It was a lot of fun to see people dressed up and just to get a feel of what it was like in the 16th century. There were many cool things to see and just admiring all the different kinds of dress. There was dancing, real jousting, comedians, jugglers and many more things.

I loved listening to Donal Hinely and his glasses that were tuned with water. The real jousting was also a lot of fun to watch. I forgot my camera so if you want to see pictures and videos about it visit Esther's blog.

Monday, was spent working on homework, doing dishes and spending time with family and friends. I spent time with my kids who I love dearly, and then went to the Tyler's house. Had wonderful food but by far the best was the pasta salad and apple pie. Thanks for making it especially for me Elisabeth. Had a lot of fun playing Monopoly with the Vince and Jon. (Bart we will have to have a rematch soon.) I was ahead and probably would of won but because of curfew we didn't get to see. :( Hopefully sometime soon we will finish it.

I miss my kids greatly. I can't wait to see them this weekend! Also, one of my best friends is coming down from New York for the weekend. Can't wait to see her and create more memories.

My break from homework is over with now :( I must finish it so that I have the night to work on Monday's homework.

I don't understand! How can this be happening? I thought things were going well.

God, I know your there and that you care. Please help me to deal with the pain and hurt I feel. I need you now more today than I ever have before.
