Today is a special day in History.....

I WAS BORN!!!! lol juuuust kidding...well i was born but I'm not sure about the special part
:P


Well, I've received several text messages and cards and its only 8:30am! You might be asking yourself why I'm writing a blog so early. Well cause I have a doctors appointment and this is as good as a time as ever for me to write a blog! lol.

I've been struggling the last couple of months with my "female" issue. It's nothing new for me. I've had these issues since I was 11. It stinks and I'm just tired of the Doctors telling me that I need to lose the weight before they go away. Well sir, why is that I know people who are just as heavy as me and have no problems with their period?!?!? Why is it that people who are super skinny and fit have the same problems I have?!?!?! IT CAN'T BE JUST A WEIGHT PROBLEM!!!! *sigh*. The dr I am going to today was highly recommended and I am just praying that he can help me. I don't want to be on birth control anymore. I want to have babies!!! I know God will give them to me when I am ready but I don't want to be taking birth control anymore. I have been since I was 12!!!! I'm trying not to be worked up and frustrated before I go but it seems to be the same vicious cycle over and over and over again. I think that if the dr's had to live with what I live with for just a day they would be figuring out how to make it better! when you have to plan your day around the "female" issue.....you start to get overwhelmed and even start going crazy!!! *sigh*

Anyway, I should get in the shower and have some breakfast. Please pray for me. This is always a difficult and trying time for me :(

Heros

I have heard a lot of news concerning our military. There are the crazy "church"goers that have been protesting at the funerals of our fallen soldiers and then there are those who protested in front of the military recruiting center in CA. I have to agree with Dr. Laura when she says "THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE". The saddest thing of all, is though people are rude, inconsiderate, and just down right selfish, My brother, a great MARINE still gets up everyday and heads into base, to make sure the helicopters that patrol the many areas of the world are maintained. He works 24 hour shifts to guard his unit. He may not be in Iraq putting his life on the line for our freedom, but trust me, if they told him today he'd be headed out tomorrow, he wouldn't think twice. He would lay down his life for you or I. He wouldn't think twice about taking a bullet for his buddy. And yet, people like the ones mentioned above have the nerve to stand on the streets and protest for a fallen soldier who gave his life so they could stand there with their very unpleasant "free" speech have no dignity at all. America has become so selfish, so desensitized by so many things, it surprises me we haven't had another attack like 9/11.....oh wait....thats because thousands of men and women are overseas hunting down those who headed up that attack and making sure I can wake up every morning and not worry about if I will be arrested or killed for my beliefs or for my speech.

American Soldiers are Heroes! Make sure to pray for them and thank them when you see them. Hoorah!

It's a Beautiful Day...

Well, I think we can almost say Spring is on its way.

This week is our Missions Conference at the church and it seems as if I've been doing nothing but running around like a chicken with it's head cut off for the last month. I can't believe its March already! (I know I think you are starting to see a pattern for this from my previous blogs). The Granite Varsity Boys won the championship for the 9th year in a row. It was an exciting 3 days but my whole body hurts from sitting on very uncomfortable bleachers for 3 days!! lol

Life has so many different character's in it, that at times it's so confusing you don't know which way is up. A friend of mine sent me a message about her Aunt who has received news that she has less than three years to live. How devastating, she's a young woman, with small children and the one thing that struck me the most was when her Aunt told her "I have no one to take with me". She wasn't worried about dieing because she knows that she is heaven bound. But she hasn't shared the gospel with anyone, given them the same blessing she received once, giving them hope for an eternal happiness. My friend and her aunt are now going soul winning and making the most of the time she has left. But what a statement "I have no one to take with me". That made me rethink my life. I remember going soul winning for the first time ever in my life and I was so scared. The first time I talked to someone it was a young girl, she slammed the door in my face. I remember telling my family members about it and them getting so frustrated and upset at me because they were "Catholic". I no longer get frustrated or upset when someone denies the gospel. We have a "free" will and because of that we can make our own choices. But through God, I continue to plant seeds so that someone may come behind us and win them to the Lord. The song "Thank You" and "Find us Faithful" mean so much more to me now. My views on life have changed, my priorities are rearranged. We are not promised our next breath, don't let something like a death sentence wake you up to reality.....

Thank You Lord for Saving my Soul!!!
