5 Years

It has just dawned on me that I have lived in Kentucky for five years this month.

Five years is a really long time to me. And these are the years that have shaped the very core of who I am.

Here's a little picture tribute to some awesome things that the Lord has brought my way in the past five years:

Long Lasting Friendships

Love (and no, I had no intention of coming to college just to get married! I worked hard for my degree!)

Speaking of, A Diploma

A Niece to Love (need you see more pictures? Yes, you need.)

Teachers
I've had the privilege of sitting under a few teachers that have shaped my theology and walk with the Lord forever. Mainly, coming from this church.

Provision
No matter what our state in life, the Lord has told me two things: 1.) I will never go without and 2.) I will never be "too poor" to help others worse off than me.

Just a few snapshots, that may not mean much to you (unless, of course, you're in one of them. Then you might take a more vested interest) but to me mean the world.

Thanks Lord, for all you've done, what you're doing, and what you're going to do.

Also...

Also, I just have a lot on my mind okay?
This would definitely make more sense if you read the post below this.

For The Sake of Arguement

This blog title doesn't mean a thing. I just typed the first phrase the popped into my head.

My mom got onto me today because I haven't updated my blog in a while. But the thing is, nothing is happening. I wake up, get ready, work-work-work, go to the gym, come home, eat something, and crash. And repeat that 5 of the 7 days every week.

BUT today, I did take a detour on my way home to see the in-laws, and of course, Gabby. Here's a picture of her taken last month in Pennsylvania that they showed me tonight.

Peek-a-Boo

Gabby is now a little over the 9 month mark. 9 months!

She is crawling, climbing, babbling, and of course, playing peek-a-boo.

This video, to me anyways, is about as cute as the duck vid. Enjoy!

Campbellsville We Love Thee

The words to mine and D's alma mater are border line sacrilege, but I thought it an appropriate title for this post because

we just got home

from the place that feels more like home

than home does.

*Sigh.*

Yard Sale Review

I did not take pictures at the yard sale. I just didn't, okay? It was hot and I got cranky.

But we did have some success and made my friend Charity's trip around the world just a little closer to being funded. Here are some things that people bought that I just found hilarious:

  • 2 railroad spikes
  • a bird's nest craft circa 1974 (with dust on it that was about that old, too!)
  • a witch's mask & wig
  • a 4-wheeler helmet that I had priced at $3... that guy probably walked away thinking, "Those kids are suckers! This thing's worth at least $25!" And he would be right, so joke's on me...
  • little things you put on the end of corn on the cobb
  • a sunflower wreath (this is actually terribly sad: the lady's late husband was crazy about sunflowers and she bought it to put on his grave... truly one man's trash is another man's treasure)
And the mountain of clothes that we had? I've never seen so many people willing to pilfer through something! Everyone told me when I was collecting donations that clothes didn't sell very well at yard sales. Well, they would be wrong in this case!

Now is time to rest, relax, and recuperate the rest of my Saturday. With any luck, I may just get some laundry done and take a short nap.

Maybe.

My Suggestion//Current Fave

If you haven't bought this album yet, do yourself a favor and get it now. No excuses, it's on iTunes.

Then, play it in your car on the way to work, or in the house while you're cleaning, or listen to it while you exercise.

I promise, no matter where you listen to it or what you are doing, it will turn into a worship experience.

I was listening to track 5, Desert Song, on the way back from Florida in June and got so worked up with how good the Lord is I was crying and the stewardess started giving me rather worried looks.

This is one musical purchase ye shall not regret.
