Thinker-before-doer type of person + Monday Madness

I’m sitting here watching MadMen when the thought of exercising occurs to me…  My right eyebrow rises and I start typing away.  That’s right, not exercising, but planning out a work-out routine.  I’m more of a thinker-BEFORE-doer type of person, so most of the time I don’t actually get around to doing the difficult task, I just brain storm about how to do it.  Rather than putting in the ten minutes -that it took me to write out my to-do list- into actually doing the half a minute tasks, I use them to procrastinate, even if it’s just a lousy ten minutes.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to exercise…  I just love to write about and think about it before I do it.

I think I’m turning pink from embarrassment ;)

Enjoy the Monday Madness…  Hope it jump-starts your Monday even just a little bit.

Happy Monday!

I looked over my blog posts and realized that I’m seriously lacking creativity.  It’s “iPhone Friday” every four blog posts…  Maybe I should title them differently so it doesn’t make me feel so bad. :)

Happy Friday!

I’m sort of freaking out.  I’m not exactly sure what I want to achieve career-wise in my life.  I was certain yesterday and the day before and so on, but today something else hit me.  I have a moment of doubt and I hate that I can’t control what my brain is telling me.  One minute it’s telling me this, the next that, and everything is becoming very confusing.  I strongly dislike feeling anxious.

“Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God. 
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7
So I did what anyone else would do.  I turned to God’s word and decided to put my trust upon Him in this matter.  Seems like somethings that are so little could be dealt with on my own, but the more I turn towards Him, the more I realize that it’s in the smallest of things that I need to trust Him even MORE.
“He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much;
And he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.”
Luke 16:10
 And now my heart is calm with peace and His love.  He knows what I need to read and hear for every day.  He knows my heart and knows what troubles me.  What more does one need?  He is my Father, my Savior, and my God.  One that is the creator of my mind, my body, and soul.  He always awaits so patiently for me to put my trust in Him, again and again.  And that alone is comforting enough!
“Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to get along happily whether I have much or little.
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. 
I have learned the secret of contentment in ever situation,
whether it be a full stomach or hunger, plenty, or want;
for I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ
Who gives me the strength and power.”
Philippians 4:11-13
And if anyone else feels like they are lacking faith today, I pulled up some amazing verses about faith that helped me get through some rough times…  Even if this helps one person I will be happy! :)

The Homestead Resort Lifestyle : The Wheeler’s

Last Friday we took the day to accompany our Pastor’s family over to Hot Springs Virginia, for a little outing.  It was an hour and a half drive over the mountains and I slept most of the way, but when I felt the car stopping frequently I sat up.  In front was the cutest little town I’ve EVER seen.  It was almost like a storybook picture.  Not kidding.  To our left was a gigantic red building.  I turned to V with huge eyes and said “I hope that’s where we’re headed!”  He nodded in agreement.

To our surprise we slowly drove around to the parking and believe it or not, the huge red building WAS exactly where we were headed.  Driving up to it is not something I can explain in words, one must see it for themselves and experience the amazingness on their own.  But maybe THIS will cure some of that curiosity. ;)

So in other words, we had the time of our lives with this family!

Cuteness overload! :)

These two are so cute! :D

The hotel had beautiful hallways that we took advantage of.

Sadie the Lady doing her thing ;)

Maureen and her daughters are SO close to each other its inspiring!

This is where I had to use V’s camera because my camera had a little malfunctioning issues.

We are so blessed to have friends like these :)

rain giving me a certain kind of feeling

rain. it sort of makes one feel blue. makes them think of sad things and want to spend the whole day in bed. those that work in the office feel like sleeping. those that work outside feel like being on the beach. those that are driving feel like stopping for coffee. those that at home feel like cozying up in front of the tv. rain, it gives everyone a certain kind of feeling and chances are the feelings are all very similar. chances are, rain makes you feel like typing a blog post without any caps and exclamation marks. just a blah kind of day.  no excitement.

taken with my iphone.



happy rainy wednesday.

iPhone Friday + May the Fourth be with you!

Funny story.  I kept reading and hearing in random places people saying and writing “May the Fourth be with you”.  Now even though I’m no die hard fan of Star Wars, I knew that it’s referenced to it, but I couldn’t figure out why it was “fourth” instead of “force”…  So believe it or not, I googled it!  YES!  And as I was doing that my brother came up and I asked him if he’s heard that today.  He said no but laughed like he knew exactly what it meant.  I was confused and felt a bit left out.

I later realized that since it’s the 4th of May and supposedly today is somewhat significant to Star Wars fans (or so google thinks so) people are being clever and are phrasing it that way.  And then I laughed.




Happy Friday and May the Fourth be with you! :)
