old times there are not forgotten.

Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times there are not forgotten,
Look away, look away, look away Dixie Land.

I wish I was in Dixie, Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
to live and die in Dixie.
Away, away, away
down south in Dixie.
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.

At the Grove, and On the Field, we are Rebels.
to the End. As one united voice we cheer.
Hotty Toddy, Gosh Almighty! ;)

I Will Always Be Proud To Be An Ole Miss Rebel!

give thanks.

this weekend was kind of a wake up call for me. i realized that maybe one day i will move there, just not now. i realized that although i miss it there, it is not where i need to be and the life i had when i was there, is now a part of my past. i am so thankful for all of my frienships i made there. all the memories that i made. most of all, i am thankful of how much i have grown up and of how much i have grown in my Faith.

today was my last day of work for the week. i didnt have much to do, so it was a laid back day. i am thankful that i have a job. i am thankful that i can pay my rent on time and still have a little extra for myself.

tonight i was talking to a dear friend, she reminded of how special i am. how beautiful i am, inside & out, and how there is absolutely no one like me, here on this earth. i am so thankful that God sends friends like that, when He knows i need it the most.

tomorrow will be the start of my break. me and the family are going to the mountains until saturday. its gonna be nice to be with momma, daddy, & bubba for a few days. i have to say i'm ready for some good homecooking, also. i am thankful for my family. i wouldnt have them any other way. never let anyone go without them knowing how much they are loved and how much you appreciate them.

be sure to give thanks this Thanksgiving. don't skip over thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas. we do have many things to be Thankful for.
Gobble, Gobble!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

i feel like i'm around children all the time.
which i usually am, and i love it. my aunt owned a daycare for over 15 years. i have 6 cousins from the age of 8 yrs til 3 months. i have worked in 3 daycares and babysat many times. i also sponser a child from guatemala, named Edwin.

i really do love children, and one day i would love to have my own. "my own" meaning i would love to adopt. i've never really been a huge fan of the whole pregnancy deal. getting fat, getting sick, having weird moods, and the pain. i'm not the best person to deal with pain. to be honest, i'm quite the baby. my momma says i will change my mind one day, when i'm married and all. who knows, maybe i will. have one child and adopt 2. thats good, i think. :)

despite all of THAT. i do more than anything, i would love to adopt. i've always thought of the adoption process so precious. its something i've thought about doing for a really long time. i would love to adopt a baby from Guatemala and China. there are so many babies in this world that need a mommy & daddy. someone to love them, to keep them safe, & to always be there. i cant imagine my life without my parents. my sister/best friend was adopted and she has the best life & is an amazing lady. adoption is a long process, but i believe it is such a wonderful & special process.

i know one day, i will adopt.

change the world one step at a time.
be the change you wish to see in this world.~Mahatma Gandhi
And whoever welcomes one such child in
my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:5

one day.

these are a few places i would like to go.
i'm sick today. dumb stomach virus.
so this is the result of feeling bad and being bored.
i decided to blog and try to feel better.

"You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights..."

"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go...."

"Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!"
~dr. seuss
maybe one day i'll go to all these wonderful places.

lately ive been wanting lots of things.

this morning i woke up wanting a biscuit & coffee.
i want to go to the beach. soon.
"i want you to want me..."
i want to color my hair red. again.
i want, i want, i want....

its so easy to always want something, isn't it?
funny how God works, because this morning my devotion was just on that.
i want to share.

This comes out of Mark 15:15

"Pilate himself wanted to be accepted and satisfy the crowd. The crowd wanted Jesus crucified. Jesus wanted to set the captives free and Barabbas wanted to get out of prison. Who really got what they wanted?

Well, Pilate didn't totally believe in the choice he made. He wanted to set Jesus free, but also wanted to be satisfy the crowd. He couldn't have it both ways so he only got half of what he wanted.

Then there's the crowd, and more specifically the chief priests, who wanted Jesus to go away and not be a problem for them anymore. They may have thought they got what they wanted, but not only did Jesus come back from the dead, His resurrection started a revolution that multiplied beyond anything the priests and crowds had to deal with before. So in reality, they never got rid of Jesus so they didn't get what they wanted.

Barabbas got what he wanted though. He wanted to live. He wanted to be free. He got both because of Jesus. And millions of others as bad or worse than that murderer Barabbas have found life and freedom because of Jesus.
Which means that Jesus got what he wanted too. He wanted people to believe, to trust in Him, to be set free, to find life in Him - and we have.

You and I were just like Barabbas at one point....guilty, hopeless, sentenced to die. And yet, somehow, someone named Jesus gave us AND HIM exactly what we both wanted: Life and Freedom. Remember that next time you think you didn't get what you wanted."

we may not always receive what we want, but we will always have Jesus. He's something everyone wants. should want.

something i've been wanting to do for a while came true today.

i've been wanting to i speak to my sweet friend on the phone, and i did. her phone calls me all the time, but she never really calls. haha. i really do miss her. she's the best girl. i don't know what i'd do without her sometimes. i couldn't ask for a better sweet friend.

well thats all for now.
i hope you all have a lovely night.

today was a day of rememberance.
5 years ago today, my papaw passed away.
he was the best. he was always there for me.
he taught me how to fish, drove me to get my drivers permit,
& always around to listen to me.
him & mammaw never missed me singing at church nor in a show.
he use to always call me his #1 granddaugther.
i was the first granddaugther out of 3 grandsons.
my memory of that day is very clear.
i had been in class that morning,
my mom had signed me out for a reason that was
she met me on the sidewalk, to tell me the
i fell onto the pavement and lost it.
that morning he walked to the mailbox. when he came back into the house,
he felt short of breath. he sat down in the first chair, then he moved
to his chair. just like that, he was gone. he left this world. his heart had fallen without notice.
as i grew up, i stayed over with them often.
waking up, i would always hear him say "good morning, sleeping beauty".
i miss that.
i miss his laugh.
i miss his jokes.
i miss him.
i know he is in a better place. he is so happy now.
i'm pretty sure that he fishes everyday. that man sure loved to fish. i wish i could still fish with him but i know i will again one of these days. as i spoke to my mammaw tonight on the phone, she brought me to tears. she reminded me of how much he loved & adored me. how he was so proud of me. so proud that i was his. his number 1 granddaugther.
i will always be his #1 Granddaugther. :)
i love you forever & always, papaw.
