Do you ever feel this way?


Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.

Psalm 25:4







I am still following and still unsure...I wish it would all be simpler. 
I continue to work on my patience,listening and understanding of His ways instead of my own. 
He is the patient one,I picture him laughing and shaking his head at me because I am still being stubborn. I am still scared and worried and a lot skeptical of what my future holds.
I need to stay close to Him,maybe he can yell in my ear that way...

capture it: looks like sugar


I took this photo the other morning before I left for work. I couldn't resist this neat look of the ice covered trees in the sunrise light.

saturday's song

David Dunn's Today is Beautiful

Sometimes the day won't ever end
Sometimes you just throw up your hands
It's the little things sometimes

Sometimes the world has just gone dark
Sometimes your praying for a spark
It's the little things sometimes

But if you lift your eyes
See it in a different light
Just a cloud up in the open sky
Let the rain, fall away
Cause today is beautiful

Lift your eyes
See it in a different light
Just a cloud up in the open sky
Let the rain, fall away
Cause today is beautiful

Right now it feels so hard to breath
Right now you're asking God why me
It's what you can see right now

Cause right now there's a greater truth
Right now there's a bigger view
Than what you can see right now

But if you lift your eyes
See it in a different light
Just a cloud up in the open sky
Let the rain, fall away
Cause today is beautiful

Lift your eyes
See it in a different light
Just a cloud up in the open sky
Let the rain, fall away
Cause today is beautiful

If you see more than what's in front of you
You might see more of heavens view
If you see more than what's in front of you
You might see more of heavens view

So lift your eyes
See it in a different light
Just a cloud up in the open sky
Let the rain, fall away
Cause today is beautiful

******
A message that can work wonders on the long days or sad days or lonely days.

my week in review

How is it that short weeks always seem long?

Monday's day off included a movie with my Dad. Go see American Sniper, that is all I have to say. 

Wine,dinner and dessert with Bestie K.

Attended Lovebug #2's first band concert,she was awesome!

Her brother on the other hand passed the time by taking pictures with my phone...

This is going to be a low-key weekend but I am content with that. Coffee with some of my Besties on Saturday and staying in/enjoying the expected snow on Sunday.

a beautiful movie

American Sniper (2014) Poster

American Sniper

I saw this amazing film on Monday with my Dad (who is a Vietnam (Army) Vet) and we both walked out of the theater with tear stained eyes and even more pride for our men and women who fight to serve and protect our Country.

I am still thinking about Chris Kyle and his family, and all our soldiers.

I thought this movie was done very well,it told Chris' story honestly and it showed a loving, strong,passionate, humble,family centered man behind the Seal uniform. I loved the dedication and rawness that Clint Eastwood and his team brought to this War story. This isn't a movie that is just about Iraq, it is about how one man stands up for his Country and all those that he loves again and again and again and again. It shows one Seal's life outside of the War and how he realizes that sometimes enough is enough and you need to accept that. It tells the story of how one Seal comes home and continues to help his fellow soldiers readjust and heal.

I only found out that Chris wrote a book a couple days before American Sniper came out so I am really looking forward to reading that and learning more about the man and Seal that Chris was and how his wife and family shaped him.

While watching this movie I forgot that Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller were the actors because they did a mesmerizing job of portraying Chris and Taya.

This movie was beautiful-go see it, go see it just to support our Troops!

a faux monday

It was a cloudy,dreary Tuesday that felt like a Monday.

My long weekend was glorious, I didn't really do things that I probably should have (hello,updating job applications...) but I did have a plethora of family and friend time!

I came home and saw a surprise from my Mom--a Christmas mug I love and a new picture frame. She knows me well!

I am going to Boston for a long weekend this Summer with Bestie B;we have only been talking about this trip for over a year. And I scored a sweet deal on my flight today!

Tomorrow is wednesday!! Wine night with Bestie K!
