Okay, so I was wrong...

Like, really wrong. Maybe I'll get at least a 50% next week......

So, I've been very zombie-like this week. So much so, that I am constantly forgetting what day of the week it even is. I guess you could call it a good thing, but I've got so much going on that's it's keeping me very busy. The bad part about that is I'm extremely tired. Everything started last Wednesday night (I had Worship Team practice and always get to bed late) and hasn't slown (is that a word?!) down. After this weekend things should finally start to even back out. My girlfriend stopped by this morning to drop off her son for a pre-preschool play date and was taken by how much I had gotten accomplished already this morning. Then she took that back and decided that it didn't surprise her because she knows how I am. I would list everything I'm doing right now but have decided that would tire me out even more, so you'll have to just take a guess....

Even though I've been incredibly busy, I've found more time than normal to be with God. It pains me to admit this, but maybe it does takes a tragedy like this to shake us all up a little. I know that's what it has done for me. I've always known that God is real and there and in control, but it's hard for me to be aware of that on a day-to-day basis. Now it's as if I'm clinging to Him and never want to let go.

Sorry to be such a downer. My hope was to come and post something light-hearted but it didn't end up that way.

I hope everyone out there has a good weekend. Please be praying for me and my level of stress!

Random Fact of the Day: I was once an "alter girl" at the Catholic Church I attended while in grade-school. I now consider myself a "recovering Catholic!"

AI Guys

The guys just finished performing and I thought I'd throw in my $.02:

Leaving this week:

David and Jason

My top two of the night:

David and David (lol!)

Chikezie did surprisingly well, I thought. And Danny gets on my nerves. I think he has GOT to go, but he won't be voted off yet.....unfortunately....


Help! Ella is walking around singing a song she learned in church and I think she has the words wrong but I cannot figure out what the right one's would be. It's sung to the tune "The B-I-B-L-E." This is how she's singing it:

The B-L-O-O-D
I'll take it along with me
I'll read and pray and disobey (????)
The B-L-O-O-D

Is she really supposed to disobey? Should it be "this obey"? This is cracking me up!!

Lives are changed now...

And Kevin is up there rejoicing because of it. The service last night was absolutely incredible and I cannot even begin to fathom the difference Kevin's death has made in so many lives. Suzie is amazing and so very strong in her faith and it showed when she spoke last night.

I have to focus on the good now, to keep my mind off of the bad and I must say that I wouldn't have changed anything about the service last night.
