My boss sent this to our advertising team yesterday. I was way to grumpy to check it out, but today it couldn't have been more well received. Please, watch the entire video. It's worth it.

This is where I am.

8 Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
the LORD will be my light.
Micah 7:8
I have fallen. Actually, I have willingly jumped into old sin. And, there's a process that I need to walk through before I can share the details. Please, continue to pray for me during this time.

James 4 is killing me!

It seems that everywhere I go James 4 is in my face. My small group co-leader, Sara L, taught on James 4 (and she did an awesome job!!) last last Monday & during our step study with Recovery at the Village James 4 was dissected once again by Michael S (not so awesome because I didn't want to hear it!). =)

When you get a chance check it out. I can hardly look at the first couple of verses without wanting to vomit! .... things in my heart are that bad!

quick reference to the Bible -

A glimpse into our home

Here are just a few pictures I took for a friend in France and decided to share with y'all.

A small portion of my bedroom. My desk is usually littered with clothing =)

A very very very small portion of my medicine cabinet. I love girlie stuff!! Can you tell?

I've been looking for the perfect fruit basket for ages and this one was close enough to what I wanted, so now I own it!! And, I love it!

My sweet dad bought me this apron!! We were at WorldMarket shopping for patio furniture and when I saw this apron I just raved about it. Well, in his sneaky-ness he decided to buy it without me knowing. When we got home he came knocking on my bedroom door and when I opened I found him wearing it!!! He's so cute!

Nothing like a swift kick in the....

Yesterday, I received an email a friend. It made me smile. I know these words are playfully serious, heart felt and even better full of truth. These bits of scripture inspired my heart beyond words. I needed this email and I'd love to share it with you.
Read the following

Subject: WTF Mate

Hey you better not be quiting on all this progress you have made. I'll come up there and kick your butt if you do.

Romans 5:3
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance

2 Thessalonians 1:4
Therefore, among God's churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Don't Give up.

In Him^

Tribute to my Pre-Teens

It's silly to admit that I used to be a NKTOB fanatic! I was 11/12 years old so I was allowed to be an idiot! Here's a new song and video that takes me back to the summer of 1989!!

PS can you guess which of the 5 caught my eye? :) Donnie, Danny, Jordan, Jonathan or was it Joey?

Back to counting and measuring and planning and more planning and more counting.... oh, to be thin and carefree.

Quick Story about a Hawaiin Sea Turtle

When I was in Hawaii a few years ago, for a friend's wedding, I had the privilege of swimming with one of these turtles. Actually, while I sun bathing in the shallow end of a lagoon one of these sea turtles decided to make my back their parking spot!! We were told that 5 HUGE sea turtles called this particular lagoon (in Kona) home for many many years. And he Hawaiians believe that if a sea turtle swims by and touches you that it's a sign of good luck. Well, let's just say the feeling of a having a 30 lb turtle laying on your back isn't exactly something I'd naturally be inclined to participate in but either I'll take that "luck" and just call myself blessed beyond measure.

New Hair

I should've posted this last week!
As I promised here's a picture of my new hair! I wish I would've had the foresight to sit up straight but I wasn't taking my brother serious when he was goofin' off with my new camera. I haven't decided if I like wearing it curly or semi straight. This is me with semi straight hair. Tell me what you think.

I'm back!

I'm finally back in Denton! I've been on a bit of a mini holiday. Well, not really a vacation but just out of town. It's nice to finally be back home though.

I got to the gym last night. I was feeling so tired and almost grumpy about working out but once my body got going it sure felt good. I jogged for the first time on the treadmill too! I cranked it up 4.5 and started jogging. I felt like I could've gone a little faster but to be honest I was afraid of losing my balance, falling off and making a complete fool of myself so played it safe.

I generally have awful reception at my office so anytime someone calls me I have to step outside to take the call. After ending a call I head back into the office and just as I was reaching my desk I took one last step with my right foot. Well, my right foot decided to continue to slide out in front of me which left me doing the splits right in the middle of my office! Thankfully I wasn't wearing a skirt AND only one of the guys was around to notice. I quickly recovered and got up laughing. I asked if he had seen it and he simply laughed and said "Oh, Marcy.!!.. always acting up for attention" I thought it was sweet of him to help me recover so nicely.

Just so you know... if you ever fell in presence I promise I couldn't help but laugh at you!! So, expect to be laughed at! And, if you ever see me fall I could only expect the same from you to me!

And then?....

Anytime my sister and I share a story we always respond by saying "and then?...." I don't know why but it's really funny. I guess you'd have to be there.

Keep your fingers crossed.
I was talking to this guy,Adam, from church last Saturday about my training schedule and we started discussing shoes and another gadgets that I've needed. I've been looking for a good heart rate monitor, specifically looking at a few from, and Adam also suggested me getting a polar heart rate monitor. He had a few places he wanted me to check out for better bargains and as he's writing his list of suggested sites, he stops writing and says "You know.... I have one that I don't use. You can just have mine." I couldn't believe my ears! Do you know how expensive those suckers are? Anyhow, I can't wait to have it in my hot little hand! What's an appropriate thank you gift? Any suggestions?

Themed Meals: After small group on Monday night a few of us decided we wanted to start cooking together more often. So, we decided to try our hand at new recipes. AND, we decided that our first "Themed Meal" would be Chinese. We planned our meals and decided to get together Wednesday night. I didn't have the foresight to take pictures because I was so stinkin hungry! My bad!
This is what we served. Steamed Rice, Chicken fried rice, beef and broccoli, sweet and sour chicken, and a stir fry medley of fresh green beans & sno peas! It was soooooooo yuuummmmmmmy! OH! and we also had edemame! I can't wait for our next attempt I'm thinking maybe Italian or Greek.

I have pictures to post but I haven't had time to upload them! But, I will! I will!

Peace out.

Quick Update

Weight Watchers went well this weekend. I lost an entire pound! Ok, 6 more pounds until I'm back on track.

I finally got in the gym yesterday for a much needed workout. It was really cool to remember old Sir Chadwick routines that were long forgotten. True to form I'll be sore today as of about 3pm. I'll keep you posted.

I haven't forgotten about pictures! You'll see some soon!
