Have I mentioned I love music??

So glad she sang this on American Idol tonight

Everybody needs inspiration,
Everybody needs a song
A beautiful melody
When the nights so long

Cause there is no guarantee
That this life is easy...

Yea when my world is falling apart
When there's no light to break up the dark
That's when I, I...
I look at you

When the waves
Are flooding the shore and I can't
Find my way home anymore
That's when I, I...
I look at you

When I look At You I see forgiveness
I see the truth
You love me for who I am
Like the stars Hold the moon
Right there where they belong
And I Know I'm Not Alone.

Yea when my world is falling apart
When there's no light to break up the dark
That's when I, I...
I look at you

When the waves
Are flooding the shore and I can't
Find my way home anymore
That's when I, I...
I look at you

You appear just like a dream to me
Just like Kaleidoscope colors that
Cover Me, All I need every
Breath that I breathe don't you know
You're beautiful...

Yea Yea Yea

When the waves
Are flooding the shore and I can't
Find my way home anymore
That's when I, I...
I look at you

I look at you
Yea Yea Oh OH OH
And you appear
Just like a dreamTo me.

One major bad quality that I have is that I'm insecure. Yes, I said it. I really wish I could change that about myself, but I honestly don't know how to. I working on it though.......

Words of Advice

An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'

1. Pray
2.. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest.
18. Eat right.
19 Get organized so everything has its place.
20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus .'
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

'If God is for us, who can be against us?'(Romans 8:31)

Home Again, Home Again

Leaving Jacksonville yesterday was hard. Harder than I thought it would be. I was only there for 9 days, but it felt like I had been there forever. I enjoyed being 10 minutes from Andrew at any given point in the day (that never happens for us on a usual basis) and getting to eat dinner with him every night. It was just.....wonderful.

Andrew has developed a really funny sense of humor over the last three years that I have known him. He had me cracking up so many times. I had to right down all the things that we thought were funny just so I wouldn't forget them! Also, he is now a squad leader which is great, but it is A LOT more responsibility then he has ever had before. He has also started to develop this more serious side of him, which I sometimes hate. I love when he is happy and not stressed or worried all the time. A couple of days were a little rocky. He was trying to adjust to everything new being thrown at him, while here I am just wanting to spend every second I could with him....and it was hard on both of us. Who ever said love takes work was right! We finally talked about some stuff and everything is so much better. He actually started laughing again. Just hearing that sound makes me smile, because I love when he is happy! His happiness makes me happy! Andrew also told me when he is set to deploy again.....UGH. I can't say that I'm surprised but I really don't wanna go through this again. I'm gonna deal with it, but I'm allowed to pout a little now, right?

Anyways, that was a little about my week. I had a great time overall. I got to meet some girls who I already felt like I knew (and a couple of their dogs) so I wasn't bored sitting in my hotel room all week. I really love Jacksonville. I know it can be boring and there isn't a whole lot to do, but you make it what it is, and if Andrew is there and a lot of girls who I absolutely adore are there, I'm pretty sure I could make it a great place to live!

I'm loving it here

Even though people say there isn't much to do here in Jacksonville, I still am liking it so far!! Andrew showed me around base yesterday and holy moly it is HUGE!!!!!! We were making a joke that it is probably as big as Knoxville. It might not be that big, but man, it is huge! He took me to the MCX and I of course had to buy some MC t-shirts and I got myself a flag so I can put in my room! I promise, I'm not overly moto! I got to see colors being doing (if that is how you even say that phrase) and I got a base pass for the rest of the week so I can get on base if I need too! I really like it here and I know this week is gonna fly by!!!

I'm going to the beach today with Becky and I'm so excited!!! Then tomorrow I'm doing lunch with some ladies! Then hopefully Christa will have her baby so I can see her!!!!!

another song...I can't seem to turn my music off

This song has me in tears it usually does

10 Hours

There's ten hours between us tonight
And I feel like my heart will break
Cause it's been way too long
Since I've last seen your face
What I'd give if you were here with me now
And I was lost in your touch
If I know my heart
There's nothing I've ever wanted so much

But to love you
Just to love you
It's all I wanna do

There's ten hours between us tonight
And I feel like I could die
But all the pain would just
Go away if I could look in your eyes

And love you
Just love you
It's all I wanna do
Cause I know you're the one
That I've been praying for
I could love you for a thousand years
And wish for a thousand more

There's ten hours between us tonight
But tonight can only last so long
By twelve o'clock tomorrow baby
You'll be here in my arms

And I'll hold you close to my heart
And I pray you feel my love
Until that day when time or space
Will never again separate us

And I'll love you
Oh, I'll love you
It's all I'll ever do
Cause I know you're the one
It just feels so right
Would it be ok with you
If I loved you for the rest of my life

Ready, Set, Go

This week is crazzzzzyyyyyy packed! I don't even really have time to write a blog, but hey, I'm gonna make time! If anyone cares this is how my week is going to look like

Tonight: Study Study Study for my lab midterm and my marriage and family class exam 1 for tomorrow
Tuesday: Micro lab exam bright and early and then classes, study during my break for my M and F class. After school, church and then study for my Micro exam 2 test for Wednesday!
Wednesday: Have my car at the shop by 7:30 am to get the oil changed and tires rotated so I can have a working car on my drive to Jacksonville this weekend. Run to the library and study until my test. After class, work and try to make a list of all things I need to get down before Friday. Then off to babysit
Thursday - meet my friend early to take her pictures to send into Miss Tennessee (HOW FLIPPING EXCITING IS THAT!!!) I'm uber excited and I can't wait! Then class all day, and packing alllllll night!
Friday- class and then meet Charlotte and off to Jacksonville we go!

So my week is hectic, I just can't wait to get these tests over with so I can breathe just a little bit better! I can't wait to see Andrew (even though I just saw him). Monday is his 21st birthday and I'm so glad I get to be there for it! I'm thinking me going there will have to suffice as his birthday present because I'm not going to have any money left. Then next week sometime hopefully if everything works out I get to meet some Jacksonville ladies at a lunch! So all in all these next oh 10 days are going to be stressful but fun!!! =)
