High Fives for Blessings

I've had a pretty great week..Many prayers have been answered.There are some things that I've been struggling with for the past month and in this past week I have prayed about it, and felt so much better about it. Isn't it funny how God always knows just what you need? For example..I worry. I worry about stupid assinine things that are usually completely out of control..but I still do it. So Sunday I walk into Crossings, and guess what the sermon is about? "The Weeds of Worry".. My church does that to me all the time..well actually, its not my Church, its My God that works amazing things in my church..Anyway, here's the jest of it.. 3 Things that Jesus says about Worry:

1) Worry puts your focus on The wrong things..when you could be thankful for all the right things.

2)Worry Underestimates your Value..You end up forgetting how important you are to God.

3) Worry has no benefits. Worrying doesn't help, and stress & worry take time off your life.

So..now that we know all that, how are we supposed to deal with it? Well "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes"~Matthew 6;34.

You always have to remember that God knows what you need every day, every week, every year.. God knows whats on the other side, so sit back and let God work. Watch what happens you get out of his way and let HIM work it out, because HIS plan is always going to be WAY cooler that YOUR plan. So when you pray to him, pray for God to bless his plan FOR you.. instead of just asking him to bless what YOU want. Cast your anxieties on him because he cares for you.. but don't just go to him when you need something. Talk to him like your father..like your friend, and not just someone there to bail you out. No one likes someone that only calls you when they need something. Its obnoxious.

This past week has been really rough for a friend of mine. Her favorite dog died, and its just been heartbreaking. I've been there when my Pandora died. My heart hurt for her and I thought it would never heal..I also thought I'd never love another dog more than Pandora, but I do. Miss Pays brings so much joy and happiness to my life, so I know eventually her heart will heal, but there's just no words to make her feel better right now. So I ask you all to keep her in your thoughts and prayers too. Sometimes when we struggle just knowing someone is out there thinking about us and praying for us makes us not feel so alone. If you want to offer her some words of encouragment, here's the link: Modvintagelife. Remember when you think your life really sucks, there is always someone out there who has it worse, or who's heart is breaking. We can't fix everyone, but we can be good to them in whatever little way we can..and sometimes that is just prayer.

So MJ and I are going to the Elk City Rodeo this weekend.. Pretty sure he's going to laugh at me, lol. Cowboy up! Speaking of Cowboys.. Go Pokes! Hope we start off with a great season!!!

The Help and The Change Up

Well I saw Two pretty great Movies.. completely opposites, but great. Last night Jordan & I had a double date with a new couple and we had a blast! We are trying to make new friends that we can go on double dates with since neither of us have any friends that are 'couples'.. I met this fun girl at Work, so we all decided to meet up at the Warren in Moore and watch "The Change up".. for those of you who haven't seen the previews, its about two guys (Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds) who end up wishing for each others lives, and it happens..One has a family, one is a single guy..Not a real original story, but the two actors made it hilarious..It was pretty crude, and lots of nudity, so not one for the kiddo's, but its FUNNY. We all loved it. Got to the Warren exactly on time, and danged if the thing wasn't FULL, so we all ended up on the 4th row from the front..but for those of you who have never been to the Warren, its really not bad to sit on the front Row even..Good Movie, Good Theatre, great popcorn!

Then today I went and watched "The Help".. I had read the book this week..started on Sunday and had read over 8000 pages of the book by Friday! Great Book! I wanted the movie to be as good, and it was! They had to take some stuff from the book out, but yeah, I would think so with an 8000 page book! But its a GREAT movie, so if you have time to see it, see it..

Tomorrow Payslee has been asked to appear in a video.. Yup, its official. She's a Celebridog! haha! Not really..well kinda..My Therapy Dog organization "New Leash on Life" is shooting a video over our therapy dogs and what we do, and who we visit..and Payslee was asked to be one of the Stars! She will be showing what she does when we go to visit the residents in the hospitals, assisted living, and nursing home facilities. The pics above are from her visits..I always like to Pose she and Sawyer before they go inside because they are all dolled up and looking cute! As you can tell they both still smile Huge when the camera is out..just like their mama! I'm so proud of them.

Everything is going well in my life..so thankful for my family, dogs, and amazing boyfriend..And man, was I thankful for the rain! We needed it so bad, and they even got some in Canute, so hopefully it will grow a little grass for the cows..its been an awful year for the farmers..Always make sure you include them in your prayers..Remember without the farmers you have no meat, and you have no veggies..speaking of.. I still have not been able to pick a dang good Watermelon this season! Jordan even brought me one from a guy on the side of the road who told him how to pick them..but nope..still not done.. blargh.. I do love me some Watermelon!

Whats that Rain? Nope..

So I was one of the fools that went to Tim Mcgraw when it was 110 outside! At first it wasn't to shabby because I had amazing VIP tickets so I went up on the VIP deck and sat underneath a mister with the shade trees..But if you moved, or did anything at all, it became SO HOT. They even pushed the show back to start at 8 because it was so miserable..the heat has really been a pain this year for sure..Luke Bryan & Eden's Edge opened up and they both did a good job..That Luke Bryan has a good mouth on him with Pretty teeth! We (I took my friend Lauren) took our Pic with Tim, and I thought he was waaaay to skinny. Maybe he is losing weight for a movie role or something..because he was too thin..Needs some more pancakes or something..But a good show.

Everything at work is going really well. I haven't moved into my new position yet, still doing the Cleanup stuff for Windows 7, but I love my co-workers and my boss..Plus I get to all these classes during my lunch hour called "Lunch & Learns".. Last week I took one over the Chesapeake Stock, and another one over Insurance for your house and Car..They were very cool..As most of you know I'm obsessed with school and love it, so its like being at school all over again! So I sign up for anything and everything I'd like to learn about.

MJ is doing great..And he and I are doing great. We went to see "Planet of the Apes" today..but I cried the first 30 minutes because they are mean to the Monkeys, and I just can't stand that..but it was still a good movie, and as you know, the apes get their revenge, lol.. We watched "Captain America" last week and it was freakin awful..He hated it too..Then we've also seen "Friends with Benefits" which was hilarious..and Justin Timberlake was really good..and "Crazy, Stupid, Love" with Steve Carrell, and it was a really good Romantic Comedy.. Jordan went to see "Cowboys & Aliens" and said they should have left it a Western without the Aliens, lol.. We've seen a ton of movies lately, but when its 110 outside there is pretty much nothing else to do!!

I'm loving my Fiona, FJ..Its so nice to be up high! She's a pretty color, and I have enjoyed driving her so far. I put a "I love my shih'tzu" on the back of it, so if you see me driving, you'll know its me!
