*thankfulness*

you know that moment when you bond with a new person? and that feeling of friendship and understanding wash over your soul and spirit in waves of thankfulness? i love when God sends new friends into my life especially when i have lost one that is close and need someone to pour my thoughts on, which i do in a strong stream to those who know me. and the understanding that is shared and felt is a thing from God. well i have some of those wonderful people in my life of late and it blesses my heart. i can relate to them on a peer to peer level and they understand. i know at times i can probably be quite annoying to them but they don't show it. and to think they can sit and listen to this boy go on and on for 3 hours of his woes and trials is pretty amazing! takes some strong minded people. this is a thankful time of year you know and one of the things i'm so thankful for this year is close trustworthy friends. last night was just one of them nights that you feel so full that you need to burst and talk to someone, thank God it worked out to go and pour my struggles out on a friends open ear. and be encouraged God always knows what i need. God has been very good to me the last year and i thank Him for His many blessings i have received. at times i think of the future and wonder whats in store but than i have to hand it back to God and say take control since it looks so big. so have a great thanksgiving! and i will too, i have my friends close by and God is still in control.

COEXIST? God forbid!

I've been thinking alot about last times and how we as Christians accept things that are very unchristian. Like take World Peace, COEXIST, the progressive governments around the world leading to moral breakdown. The little broken peace symbol so many people innocently display not knowing its a slap in a Christians face. What are we thinking as Christians to accept things that slowly take away our morals, our nonresistance, our non-conformity. Yes we hate hearing that, its hard to accept. But really we as a Christian people need a shaking, a breaking of habits and turning to God. Think your Spirit-filled friends take it to far? I don't. We need more alive spiritfilled Christians and not as many lukewarm, typical, mainstream christians!

What day is it?.....

Well my friends its been awhile!  I am settled in nicely and have gotten to know a bunch of the people here. I'm so glad i came!! I love it so far. I am into my second week of CNA school i have a week and a half left yea!!!  I start clinicals next week and i train in here too... i trained last Sunday also. I cant wait to start full in the home its so rewarding and i love being around the youth here, not studying for school
On saterday we (the 4 off that day) went on a canoe trip and made our food the old way. Fried on a rock over a fire, stared with flint and steel with sticks from the woods... it was a epic day!! And it ended up with a crawdad hunt and RN grad party.
Tonight a group of 16 of us went to a awesome lake a half hour away. We went pontooning and rock climbing it was a beautiful place. And had supper with the setting sun!

In flight

Up and away, on my way, to Mexico. I felt i needed to spend some time with one of my friends before i leave for Hillcrest so we decided on Cancun Mexico. We'll be there for 8 days and hopefully have a nice sun time. I did have a slight disappointment about going to Hillcrest it will now be 2-3 years before they accept nursing students so i will just be a cna till God works something out for me. I may wait or go to a different college we'll see when the time comes. I still want to fill my time at HC though, i believe it will be good for me to dedicate some of my life to helping the elderly in voluntary service. I will probably be off line for the rest of my 8 days so farewell. The next post will be at leaving time for Hillcrest!  Yeah!!!

Leaving with mixed feeling

Feelings! Its just a little thing that goes on inside you when your mind is running... but yes there needed and in need of control! Mine are slightly mixed right now so i am trying to put them in order in this waffle i call my brain. My waffle is a Belgium kind, it seems to deep to get to the bottom sometimes !  With a church that was so peaceful and on fire for Christ 3 years ago when i moved here i can't believe it now. Division and upheaval disagreements and pain. Hurt people are the out come of church splits. And so we need God, here, among us. To either unite us, or help us lovingly separate and be at peace with God, man, and ourselves.  Turn this hurt into healing Lord! Send your healing rain. Remake us. Build up our hearts and souls in you. I long to see Gods people united! We dont need these walls between this group and that group! We are a family all working for the Lord, lets act like a family! We see someone different then us and start judging, lets be upbuilding! And get to know them and understand what they do not judge them. Honestly!  Are we 5 yr olds? Grow up in Christ, start speaking out for him. Stop the gossip circle that runs rampant in many ' conservitive ' christian circles. Be a light to your neighbors, start a anti-wall group that tares down walls to bring peace to the christian circles. Use what God has given you my friend to better this world and Gods kingdom! It takes one person with a virus to spread it to millions, it takes one faithful christian to start the bonfire of revival, be that person!

my pre trip thoughts

One month and 16 days till i arrive at Hillcrest Home Arkansas! Then my life will be changing, i pray it will change me and i can be a blessing there too. I will be rather happy to get away from all the stress at work things can get rather trying at times. Like tonight working till 6:45 and stil having to go in at 5:00 tomorrow morning because people didnt get the kitchen cabinets built on time and since i work at the final end i have to clean up the messes and work late to keep it all on time... oh my enough on that. I know there will be trying times at Hillcrest too but i know God will give me patience and grace. Since this is a first for me bloging i will make it short. I need to start packing my belongings to store and packing for my 8 day trip to Mexico next Tuesday with a friend so goodnight
