so this is my sarah anne. she is my 6 year old, little cousin. she is like my little sister, so full of life and the biggest imagination you can think of. i've seen her grow up so quickly and its hard to believe that she's 6 and knows so much. she can be so sassy at times (i wonder who she gets it from ha), and then other times, she's the sweetest, most precious little girl.
friday night we went to the movies and ice cream afterwards. we saw romanna and beezus. it was really good, it wasnt the kid movie i thought it would be. it was definitely a "sister" movie though. after the movie was over, we got some dairy queen and headed home with justin bieber and taylor swift coming out of the speakers. we were about 10 minutes away from home, when she said "Kerwy, i like spending time with you." it was probably the sweetest moment of the night. :)
my sarah anne can be a wild one, but she says what she thinks. she's gonna be an amazing kid, and i cant wait to see what she grows up to be. :)

she says "boys are eww and dumbheads."

she'll be in first grade. so crazy.

i love my sarah anne!

I hope you all enjoy this! Time sure does fly.
Have a great monday!

child like faith.

so i never thought i could learn so much about casinos in just a few hours.

i went to my new job at a daycare, in flowood on monday. i was in the nursery for the afternoon, and with some older women. they talked about going to the casinos this weekend. it was quite ammusing to listen to. they talked about which casino was best to go to, whether they should go to vicksburg or the coast, how much money they should take in? they were so excited, talking about it all.

i wish Christians were that excited when they talked about Christ. a child like faith.

last night before i went to bed and i read Ecclesiastes 7. talk about wow! i was so in aw of what all it was saying.

"1 A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfume.
And the day you die is better than the day you are born.

2 Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties.
After all, everyone dies—
so the living should take this to heart.

3 Sorrow is better than laughter,
for sadness has a refining influence on us.

4 A wise person thinks a lot about death,
while a fool thinks only about having a good time.

5 Better to be criticized by a wise person
than to be praised by a fool.

6 A fool’s laughter is quickly gone,
like thorns crackling in a fire.
This also is meaningless.

7 Extortion turns wise people into fools,
and bribes corrupt the heart.

8 Finishing is better than starting.
Patience is better than pride.

9 Control your temper,
for anger labels you a fool.

10 Don’t long for “the good old days.”
This is not wise."

There is more of course, but these verses are so powerful. i really like verse 8.

"26 I discovered that a seductive woman is a trap more bitter than death. Her passion is a snare, and her soft hands are chains. Those who are pleasing to God will escape her, but sinners will be caught in her snare.

27 “This is my conclusion,” says the Teacher. “I discovered this after looking at the matter from every possible angle.
28 Though I have searched repeatedly, I have not found what I was looking for. Only one out of a thousand men is virtuous, but not one woman!
29 But I did find this: God created people to be virtuous, but they have each turned to follow their own downward path.”

i hope this opens your eyes. have a child like faith.

hope you all have blessed day!

on a personal note.

so waiting is a pretty difficult thing for me to do. as in other blogs, ive talked about how i dont have patience. with anything. i hate that about me. ive really tried working on it. somedays are better than others of course, but i never can completely have full patience with everything.

last night i was talking to a new friend, that told me something interesting.
we were on the subject "how does he know he's met the one?" to be honest, ive never heard it put in this way. to hear someone be in a relationship for almost 2 years and say that he doesnt think about it.
he told me, "I have a certain priority order that most people i talk to disagree with. The way I handle my relationships is that I put God 1st, Family 2nd, friends 3rd, education 4th, THEN my girlfriend. most people immediately put girlfriend 1st or 2nd. so "the one" is not something that i think about this point in life. I dont know who God has planned for me to marry. Although, the girl i'm dating now has alot of what i want in a wife."

this really opened my eyes. you know we've all heard the saying "put God first and everything else will fall into place." it is so true. when God is in it, its going to be amazing.
so for me to have patience, is so big for me. i know i can do it, i just have to give it all to Him. and thats so hard to do sometimes. to not think about when i'll meet "the one" or who i will marry, to not worry, to not be bothered about things, to not remember things from the past. i know God has forgiven me and i have said take it all, Lord. but WHY do i beat myself up about it. its me that wont let go. its me. i ask that you pray for me.

the Christian walk isnt going to be easy, but He promised He would never leave.
for that i am so thankful and humbled by.

Have a wonderful Tuesday. :)

75 & still young.

today is my mammaw's 75th birthday!
i am so thankful for her. she has always been there for everything. for all my pageants, singing gigs, and always been such an encourager. she's always been so strong. going through cancer, losing her husband and best friend, and going through other hard family things. she always is so positive and never loses her faith. she loves to talk and tell stories about her children and grandchildren. she's a bundle of joy to be around and i dont know what i'd do without her in my life. she has truely blessed my life.

I thank my God every time I remember you. Phil. 1:3

Hope you all have Blessed Monday!

You have turned my mourning into dancing.

super summer 2010.
it was absolutely amazing and humbling. God really moved in each of us there.
"you have to make people do things they don't want to, so they can become what they want to be." Bryant "BB" Bush, our speaker for the week said this, along with many other quotes. one thing he said on the last night we were there was that "never give up. even to the point of death. we are surrounded by a cloud of greatness and they are cheering us on, here on earth." then he told us to close our eyes and to listen to the sound that we were about to hear. it was a crowd of people yelling for us, cheering for us, clapping for us. it was the best sound i had heard and the way it was put in that perspective, was so humbling and refreshing. sometimes we think that we are all alone and everyone is making fun of us, but really that is only the devil doing those things. God and the angels are cheering us on. isnt that just amazing to know? no matter what we go through, there is always that cloud of greatness, feeling our pain, laughing with us, crying with us, and cheering us on.
Joshua 3:5 Consencrate yourselves.

Expect God to do Big things! :)
Hope you have a great weekend!
