Random Ride

Here are several random things in no particular order.

Today Morgan and I went thru the drive thru and the guy said this: "Ma'am, (when did I reach ma'am status?) I know I have told you this...but I don't know if it's your make-up or what...but you sure are pretty. Well, I guess you better be getting back to your husband." LOL! The thing that is so funny is that he said I don't know if it's your make-up. In other may be a dog but...
I am not bragging (BELIEVE ME) but Rod and I got a good laugh out of that one!

Edited to add this: Morgan did a manger scene at preschool in which she had to glue the wise men, Mary and Joseph, and the baby Jesus on a piece of construction paper. She glued the wise men on there with their faces to the ground, laying prostrate. Now, she had her own 2 year old reasons for this but I just bet they were on their faces before THE KING!

Morgan has been carrying around a picture frame ornament with me and her in it on her arm. She puts the loop over her hand and wears it on her wrist. I will hear her talking and she says: "My mommy!" It is the sweetest thing! It makes me think of this verse...and don't worry I won't elaborate:
Isaiah 44:5
5 One will say, 'I belong to the LORD '; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand, 'The LORD's,' and will take the name Israel.

Speechless (That's a first):
I pulled out some of my old Avalon cds today and got my praise on! I listened to I'm Speechless over and over! HERE are the lyrics...It can't describe how I feel any better. I can't put into words what Jesus means to me.

As far as a visual goes of how I felt today here is a verse (I know it is talking about David not confessing his sins and how he felt but...)
Psalm 32:4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Selah

Have you ever felt physically like God was pressing on you to push your body in the bed to rest?
(I am being very figurative)
This is me today...I managed to take a nap (Thank you Rod) from 7pm -9 pm but I am so exhausted today.

Disappointment: I have some really bad news! I am not going to get to try out for the Wheel of Fortune. I have to work all weekend. Rod is thinking I need to get over it when I said that I was devastated that I wasn't going to be on the Wheel. I am only partially exaggerating! It wasn't meant to be. The Lord is saving me some embarrassment because I would be the loudest, craziest thing you have ever seen!! I am still hoping that He will part the Red Sea of my situation and let me try out! ;)

If there is a time that you get offended with me and quit reading my will be now. I DO NOT LIKE CATS! I have so many reasons why...but I have a problem now. There is a cat that keeps showing up at my door. I tell it to go away and I do not feed it (I am sorry I am sure there are some good Samaritans in my neighborhood that will feed it) I always heard that will make it come back. Well, last night it lunged at me and hissed. I screamed out loud I was so scared. How can I get it to go away?

I finished Stepping Up and I am so sad that it is over. I am not sure what study I will do next...I have done all of Beths so does anyone have any suggestions for a new one? Sigh.

I must go wash clothes now =)

Fran said...

Well...DO NOT FEED THE CAT! We did that and the dern thing was pregnant! NO!!!! So, be strong my friend.

Your Random Ride was wonderful and it got into my heart about whats going on with you. And, yes I'm sorry about Wheel....and I'm thankful you got that power nap....and I love hearing what that sweet Morgan is up too.....and I'm sad with you over Bible study ending....

My group is starting Wising Up and then Psalms of Ascent....any advice or thoughts on either of those??? I've heard so much about Priscialla lately....try one of hers.

I love ya...have a good day.

BethAnne said...

NOOOOOO!!!!! You have to try out for Wheel!
Not sure how to get rid of cats, but I think you are doing the right thing by not feeding it, unless of course it is a cat who is nursing its precious little baby cats and needs nourishment to survive because didnt God make cats too? Hahahahahah Just kidding! I am not a real cat lover either - I am actually allergic to them.
As for the Bible study, I totally recommend Priscilla Shirer He SPeaks to Me - it is awesome and she is wonderful! I am getting ready to lead the one that comes after He Speaks to Me called Discovering the Voice of God and I am loving it too.
ANd from your pictures I can tell you really are pretty - I think it must be the make-up - hahhahaahaha just kidding!

I don't like cats either. Also, hubby is highly allergic to them.

Teri said...

No cats for me...can't stand them!

Morgan is a doll! Love the stories!

I am going to the mall later tonight...I will see if you are working or spinning the wheel!

I agree with Bethanne He Speaks to Me was WONDERFUL. It was the first one I had ever done with Pricilla and I fell in love with her. She is a lot like our Beth :)

I hate cats, too... not a fan!

Charity said...

Ok...we are meant to be friends because...I HATE CATS TOO!! They scare me to death!

It's not your make-up ARE beautiful!!

I am so sad that you have to work and will miss the "Wheel"!!! You are so funny...I am also VERY loud and apparently obnoxious at times because of my volume level...oh well!!

Are you done with your Christmas shopping?? I still have a good bit to do! Ta Ta for now!

I have done both of hers and they are great!
HAve a super weekend!
