Ooooo Thanksgiving...

Oooooo Man I feel so good right now! I just got done working out at lifetime with Casey Flynn... I do not think he reads my blog so he doesn't get an official shout out! (But I still love that kid) Lifetime is amazing! My favorite thing there is the Steam room no doubt I love it!

Okay so anyways, I told myself I wasn't going to update this, but I felt strangely motivated too... So here it goes.

Yesterday I was feeling strangely discontent with my current circumstances. ( this whole being single thing...yeah i know.) But today it is the opposite. I am really feeling good about where I am now. I want God to be the one I lean on, And not try to replace him with anything. I had a good QT( quiet time, Devotional, whatever you want to call it) And I have been going through Isaiah, which is funny.. I will tell you why.. At times Isaiah can be pretty boring and none applicable, but at other time it completely PWNS YOU and is .....wait.. oh yes.. FRICKEN KICKEN! And here is an example of what I mean by Fricken Kicken

Isaiah 5: 18-22

18 Destruction is certain for those who drag their sins behind them
with ropes made of lies,
who drag wickedness behind them like a cart!
19 They even mock God and say,
“Hurry up and do something!
We want to see what you can do.
Let the Holy One of Israel carry out his plan,
for we want to know what it is.”

20 Destruction is certain for those who say
that evil is good and good is evil,
that dark is light and light is dark,
that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
21 Destruction is certain for those who are wise in their own eyes
and think themselves so clever.
22 Destruction is certain for those who are heroes at drinking wine
and boast about all the alcohol they can hold.

That last one sound familiar?
I have also been reading a book.... What? Oh yeah Im reading a book ... WHATS UP NOW?!
The book is called The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism by Timothy Keller. I am taking my small group through this, and I think it will be really good! I just read the first chapter but Hey so far its good haha... But seriously I do suggest it cause it goes over many of the arguments against God you hear today. Consider getting it..

Anyway that's all i got for today... And Again... I am really sorry.. no picture of the day.. SOON
Now im going to plat Left 4 Dead... one of the most fun games I have ever played!
Catch you later

STAYIN ALIVE...And the Trip

Sorry It has been a while! A whole week.. wow.. Dont worry I am still trying to keep this alive! No Worries....

Right now I kinda am having a tiny anxiety attack, To tell you the truth I know exactly why... but I will just give you the vague overall description. You ever feel like you could have done something different in a situation or a relationship? or handled something in a different way? K everyone has, but right now I am at the point in wear for some reason I feel like I should try again and do things differently!... some of my closest friends who read this know exactly what I am referring to, and are like" NOOO CHRIS! Why!?" But to tell you the truth I do not really know... I feel Like I should but in a way I feel like I should just move on and be done with it.... Ughhhh I wish I could just give it up to God and let him take up everything so i dont have to worry about it, but than I wonder if God does want me to try again... I know this is confusing, I will just move on.. but that is on my heart and tonight for some reason more than others..

This weekend was a pretty dang sweet weekend! I hung with Rodes a lot and that was very cool! really appreciated that. One cool thing about this weekend though is that I came up with a really cool Idea that I would really like to implement for next year... well Next January/February...
.... Are you ready? A road trip with my brother to California! You know this sounds pretty cool but I think its more than just pretty cool! I want to view this trip as a Crazy Photo Journey. I am going to take like 4 to 5 Memory Cards for my camera and just document the trip and just reallly explore with my camera. I want to stop at random places, and meet random people and hear thier Stories and than get thier portraits recorded on my Camera. Wherever I feel led to stop I will stop! With this road trip I plan to stay at my Aunts house in San Diego for about a week, which would be sweet.... of course I havent asked her yet haha but still... that would be SWEET. While we are there my bro and I are going to explore San Diego and get tons of pics while meeting tons of people! AND what I want my brother to do is to Journal the entire trip, and write a short story about our trip!.... HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?!?! I get more and more excited about it... But seriously It would be so fun.

Yeah I know this is a long one.. and I do not have a picture of the day... so sorry but I will give this great Passage in the Word I came along the other day....
Isaiah 1: 18-20
18. "Come now, let us argue this out," says the Lord. " No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as Ctimson, I can make you as white as wool.
19. If you only obey me and let me help you, then you will have plenty to eat
20. But if you keep turning away and refusing to listen, you will be destroyed by your enemies.
I, The Lord, have spoken!

Mmmmmmmmm Great verses.. more to come later... Anyways thats it.. catch you later

BRB,OMG, ROFL,4, Pwned, G2G, TTYL!

I am actually giggling to myself right now for coming up with such a clever Title for my blog post! I will tell you why its clever..

This Blog title thoroughly describes the entire weekend that I had! As you I know I went to SD( South Dakota) with a bunch of buds to visit our bud Matthew Johnson and it was just as I imagined it would be...FRICKEN KICKEN! But this is how the Title corresponds with it.. BRB= Be right back I am going to SD. OMG= Crazy fun, long, somewhat frustrating Hike! We got lost for a bit and it could have been pretty dang bad because it was almost pitch black outside. But it ended great ROFL= We went to a buffet after the hike which was so necessary, And it was one of the Funniest/most fun Dinner times I have had in a very very long time, 4= Equals "The Four" being reunited after many many months and we had a great time catchin up, Love those guys. PWNED= Playing Halo 2 with all the guys in Matt's Dorm, My team got Pwned by Drewski, but we also pwned in snipers..(yeah that's right natural born nerdsack right here!! New Acronym NBN! write that down) G2G= We had to leave Sunday morning with the crew at 8am which was sad because it ended so early. The gayest part of leaving was that we wanted McDonald's breakfast a little after we left, but there was not a McDonald's for the next 200 miles! It sucked we didn't get there in time for breakfast...TTYL = We were all sad that the weekend was over cause it was a blast, but in 2 weeks we will all be back together again for thanksgiving!

So that is a good fricken overview of the weekend... and I will be posting an album on facebook here soon... but here is a preview!

(If you dont want to read all this I suggest you going down to the FUNNY part and just read that)

Well It has been a very long week let me tell you! Not necessarily bad... but just long if that makes sense? The whole week has seemed to go very slow, even though I have been very busy with things. I have also been working a lot which is nice. Gettin a lot of orders out the door and gettin pics done.. its been a pretty productive week... But it also has been a very big procrastinating week for me.... so in a way it was balanced HA...

This weekend is gonna be......Yup thats right.. FRICKEN KICKEN! Karl, Ryan, Steph, Jill and I are going spend the weekend in SD! We are visiting Matthew Johnson(who is a faithful reader) and its gonna hopefully be a blast! So YEAH... We dont have everything figured out quite yet which could be a problem but meh it will still be good! Im really tired right now and should be doing other things with my time...but im not... And should be finishing this kids photos... but im not...I did finish an extra credit project tho, so thats good.

FUNNY: kind of
Oh yeah I kind of have a funny story... It was one of those things that happened and was Like "I should write about that in my blog" but than I felt stupid for even thinking like that haha.. But yeah here goes the story: So I had class today which is a class that I am retaking cause I did awful in it the first semester, so I dont really care about it. But anyway, I had to pee really bad in class but I wanted to see what the Teach was going to say about my pictures so I held it in... So like 5 Min's later I really had to go so I got up and headed to the bathroom. I was particularly excited for my pissing experience cause i had to do so bad. As I was going there I was following a rather larger man, and I thought to myself this guys is pretty large( mainly FAT...I don't want to offend anyone) So I followed this "large" man to the bathroom and as we were heading to the Urinals, I thought to myself I hope I don't have to stand next to this guy while I piss.... So in the bathroom there are 3 urinals. Guess what this guys does?!?! YUP That's right.. He takes up the Middle Urinal!! WHO DOES THAT?! Every girl that reads this will be like "So what?" But every guy understands what im saying.. So I seriously stopped in my place and almost said this......"Really?" I was going to take the stall instead, but than I was like no I'm not going to let this "Large" man ruin my pissing experience.. So I stood next to him almost grazing elbows and trying not to play footsie with his wide stance... So we stood there and it was like he was having a Full Cardio workout at the Urinal! He was breathing all loud and was making funny little grunts. When I finished up with My pissing I washed my hands and walked out. You know what I noticed next? I was angry! When I noticed I was angry because of that whole situation I started to ROFL in the hall... and that's it

Pic of the day? Let me see what I got! OOOOooo okay this is Jaime.. but I just realized how much I like this one because its just so HAPPY... tell me what you think

Wow.. I wish I was better...

to finish that sentence... I wish I was better at not procrastinating!! OMG watch this!!

Yeah I have had trouble doing homework because of that and other ones of that nature.... but seriously I felt like I need to update this too... which is not helping me at all!
I have some good news... and some bad news!
The Good news is that My mommy's knee surgery went well and she is healing up just great! She comes home from the hospital Monday so that is GOOD!
The bad news is that I feel a cold coming on... which cannot happen! I will have to go to lifetime tomorrow and spend sometime in the steam room I guess....I just hope there are no old naked men in there without their towels on... thats always disturbing!! I had a good rant about that today at small group... today was a good small group! really liked it!

Anyway I just have a good verse that i read today! Its a Psalm and it really hit at home.. and made me think of "Christians" in general.

Psalm 107: verse 2
"Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has saved you from his enemies!"

As you know the Psalms were written before Jesus Christ died on the Cross, but I think that verse is even more powerful if we apply it to our lives today! Jesus Christ has saved us from way more than just our enemies! He has saved us from eternal death! All we have to do is accept that gift! Have you? Read Romans 10:9-11

Hebrews 9: 14
Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our hearts from deeds that lead to death that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

That's it for today folks... here is the pic of the day... simple but nice! tell me what you think

Ding Dong the Witch is dead!!

The title of this Blog is totally Random, it has no relevance whatsoever! When I thought what I should put for the title that just popped into my head!! So anyways......

Today... what an interesting day... Yeah let me tell you this whole week has been interesting lack of a better word.( my dictionary skills suck) Nothing really big has happened but things have not been going according to "plan" or Like I just havent felt myself this week... I dont know really know why or If its a bad thing or not but it sure had been fun to see what happens. It has been a normal week but I have found myself doing some random things, which is usually normal for me but It has thrown me off my routine so It was wierd... Sorry to be so vague I just dont feel like going into detail! Tonight was a good time I had a photoshoot and than hung out with Rodey. But you know whats gay?! We didnt really know what to do, so than the Idea came up that we go to Lifetime and workout and swim or something. So we drove all the way over there and it turns out you can have guests come in with you after 9! It was like 9 30! The lady wouldnt let us in... it was very frustrating... So we went back to my house and nerded it up.... it was still pretty fun but... how dissapointing.

I dont really feel like makin this a long one but I do want to show you a fun picture that was taken today! Haha It really makes me ROFL! I eventually did get 4 people today to photograph, but I needed 5 so I found a guy walking through the hall... His name was Rob(far left)... and here it is HA!

God's Got a plan..

Today is going to be a short one but let me just say this: I am scared for tomorrow, But I want to trust God that he has a plan through it all!

This verse has really encouraged me the past couple of days I love it! (nothing really to do with Politics)

Hebrews 4: 14-16
14. That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God. Let us cling to him and never stop trusting him. 15. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same temptations we do, yet he did not sin. 16. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.

OH man love that Passage so much... OH WAIT one more

Hebrews 2: 14,15
14.Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. 15 Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

What is left to fear if our fear of death is truly gone?
So many "Christians" are afraid to share their faith because of rejection, and other things, but why should we fear?! Why is our trust and our faith in Jesus Christ so embarrassing?! If you are going to say you are a Christ Follower it better be shown through your words and actions! Where is your fruit?! Is there any?! Are you serving people? Are you helping out others in need? Are you reaching out to others? Are you sharing the Good News?! What has resulted from you being a Christ Follower..

Okay Im done....

Okay I Believe you, But my Tommy Gun Don't...

WOW It has been a while HUH?! I truly am Sorry, But man I have been busy with a lot of Shenanigans! I mean it was Halloween weekend so yeah I had places to go people to see... SORRYYY!!!

Anyway, the title of this post is the song that I am currently listening to by Brand New... Yeah its on the line of emo, But I don't care I like this band very much! Enough of that! This weekend was...wait for it... FRICKEN KICKEN!! Yeah that's right..(if you haven't started using that phrase yet, I suggest you start) This weekend was pretty great tho.

Friday was the Harvest Carnival at church. If you do not know what it is, its a big party thing my church throws every Halloween, its just for kids, but its great fun helpin out. I myself went as a Jabbawockee! And I was rather proud of how my costume looked, but It was gay cause everyone thought I was a Mime.... So I just went with it.
After that I went to Sister's party and it was pretty good but it wasn't my scene... But I did end up Doing what every person should do on Halloween... You know what it is?! Think about it......NO NOT THAT!! you have a sick mind.... I was talking about dressin as a Burrito and going to CHIPOTLE!! I went with Z (andy Zweber?) and We got all tin Foiled up and got a free Burrito! But it actually was a big disappointment... you know why?! Cause We accidently Switched burritos and I didnt find that out untill I left.. so I had a terrible burrito... It had every salsa on it, and had Pinto Beans, And that is exactly the opposite of my burrito pretty much.. it was not enjoyable at all, it was almost a chore!

Saturday was a very interesting day Let me tell you.. IT was a great day, but some interesting things happened. Prayers were answered and God really showed me what to do and say with my Saturday.. it was a great day. Saturday night I decided to go crosswalking again, and I invited my good friend Ryan Roetman, And it was a great time!! Not as many people out as we thought there was going to be, but it was still a great time. Encouraging and really motivating to read up on your stuff. Great day..

Sunday was usual, but still really good. The HIGHLIGHT was Lunch with sister definitely, we talked about some good stuff ..LOVE HER... OH WAIT another Highlight was talking to MATT Johnson on the phone after small group. We have not talked for a while and it was really good Love that sexy man too!

I think thats it folks! Pic of the day?... what do I have for you?... hummmmm okay Got it
Its pretty coool tell me what you think! YEAH JAKE
