Soooo…today started off kinda ruff, luckly it wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. We just got our car serviced a few days ago. this morning the hubby went to the car to go to walmart when he heard the worst noise in history lol…so we had to take it back to the shop. lucky the shop is a very popular street so we had lots to do, the only thing was that we had to walk everywhere. It wasnt that bad but when you have plans to do something (or plans to do absolutly nothing at all-lol) then is spoils somethings. One lesson Ive been learning tho it to trust God. He has his own plans for us. We can wake up and think we have a day completly planned out but it ends up changing because something fell through or something wrong happen. Im trying not to get irritated or frustrated by those things and just simply live and have fun and dont take anything for granteed. cause its true…it could be alot worst then what it is. Thank God I serve a God who will listen to my prayers. A God that will see to it that no matter what, its going to be okay!!! I love Him

lol- Its said that I keep doing all these updates…lol…but I have another post to post (lol) so that streak will be broke…Praise God!

I cooked yesterday but i forgot to take pictures…lol!!! I cooked Speghetti!!! I made it how my friends makes hers cause mine was so blan.

What I did was added onions and greeen peppers. I choped them up and saute them before I added the meat and I also added some seasoning to the meat. It came out sooo good!!! yay for me! lol

I havent been walking since Saturday. Sunday was my day “off” so the means for two days I havent been doing what I wanted to….welll actually, I have. I dont know if I said this in my last post but my goal is to walk for atleast 3-4 days out the week so its not that big of a deal yet. lol

I forgot all about my hair challenge. lol. My hair has grown a few inches…maybe 1 lol. Since I got my hair dyed on the day I started my hair challenge, its easy for me to see my roots as they grow in. I havent done much of protective stylin (although I should) but Ive been doing alot of twist outs and what nots. This friday is my husband birthday and we’re going to go to the zoo. I decided Im probably going to need my ends tucked in since I’ll be in the sun all day. We’ll see what I come up with. But yea,hair grow seems normal. Ive been washing everyday. Moisterize with water and shea butter. I realized that shea butter should not go on your scalp, so I started on the top of my hair and rub though to seal the water. Its kinda greasy but i guess it helps. Im still researching so I guess I’ll see. I also came across a way to help my scalp. They say to massage olive oil on your scalp before you wash or rinse. it suppose to moisterize my scalp. I dont know about this….again Im still researching.

And Im also starting my “Lesson Learner thingy” lol. So ive been reasearching and hopefully Ill post later on today…Im bored enough.

the whole facebook thing has been going well. Im actually happy I deactived it. again, I feel as tho I can focus on my own life with the threat of thinking that Im actually in some sort of competition or race with others. My husband gave me a very good quote that I’ll probably cherish for the rest of my life (he’s so wise) “if it was a race, we’d all be going the same way.” And he’s right. We have to remember that we’re not in a race in this life. God has us going in all types of direction and each of us has our own destination thats what Its go important to understand that im okay where Im at. I want more for my life and I def want to do more with it but I cant if my eyes are always fixed on someone else. Also I would like to be happy- truly happy for the people in my life. Love when they succeed and pray for them when they dont. I feel like I am happy when people succeed of something great happens to them but there is this one little bitty spot of envy…and love is not envy. So I give that to God cause its not like Him and its not who I want to be.

Oh yea!!! yesterday I went to go register for school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol…yay. Im too excited! And it such a blessing to. Altho they changed the hourse on my slightly, the class is actually shorter than I thought it was, and the price is lower too. Im excited!!! 😀

So yea, thats the update from yesterday to today. I’ll post again! ❤

Havent been on in a hot minute! but I think thats because…nothings happened….lo- Anyway, theres no excuse…I plan on being on this thing atleast twice a day for the next week. how? you ask? wellll…im officially ON VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAISE GOD!!! lol so I have alot of time on my hands and I really want to start writing, esp.now that I have time to do it.

Ive actually been having a few short term goals…

I started walking and doing some leg lifts/sit ups. My goal for right now is to stay active and not so much as to lose some weight (but i do hope to do both). Ive been so proud of myself because of how long ive been sticking to it so Im praying that i continue to do so. I feel like i acomplish alot when I get back in the house just sweaty. I also become less likely to be lazy. lol

While im on vaycay i also will like to post some life lessons Ive been going through lately. I think that although i might be learning stuff like “the power of my words, forgiveness, the importance of wisdom…ect.” I would like to document my research. I call it research because if I go through something I want to learn how to handle it and I’ll probably be looking for articals to learn more about what i need to do. It also allows me to stay in the word of God. I tell ya, when your going through something, theres nothing like keeping you nose in the bible. I remember someone telling me that when we go through trials and troubles it keeps us close to God and Ive learned that to be true for myself.

I deactivated my facebook. I dont know how long Im going to do it for but I knew I had to do it. Facebook is a great way for me and my family to interact.I love the fact that I can see my friends and see what they’re doing in their lives and seeing there children and families and see what their up too but Its also a curse because I (personally) find myself comparing my life to everyone elses. I feel as  though I should be where they are in life. I can stop doing it for a time but when I talk to someone about whats going on in their lives I began to feel envious of them. But Im done feeling that way (I dont want to feel that way) I dont want to compare my life with theirs based on how much money they have, what they have and what their doing with their lives. What God has for me is for me. This also allows me to focus on my own life. After I deactivated it Ive felt like I was hitting MY target instead of wondering how everyone was hitting their own target. One day soon I hope I’ll be able to get back on facebook and not be distracted with how everyones doing in their life or how good they have it, but rather I can get on and actually be happy and joyful of their victories just like I hope they’ll be joyful of mine. Im praying that God helps me heal what I have allowed to be broken. It wasnt meant for me to feel like a failure…In fact…Im not a failure but because I have entertained thoughts in my mind and assured them in my speech I have fallen short of my task to keep my eyes on God. this is a constant challenge for me that one day I will obtain victory (Amen!)

I plan on doing alot on my vaycay. My main focus is to focus on relaxing and having fun with my husband. but I do want to do other things and catch up on some of my goals like cooking. lol.  Im excited. Dont really know what on my menu but It should be good regardless.<3

anyways…time to get started.

gee, why havent I been on???? i have no idea. I guess cause Ive lost the will to do a blog but I have to remind myself what the purpose of my blog is for: to document 2011- a prosperous year! lol.

we’ll heres an update:

cleaning:I manage to clean myspace. Altho Its not complete, the parts that I have cleaned Ive been able to keep them that way. I think my biggest thing about cleaning is my clothes. I have soooooo many clothes (even though I think i dont) that i get so lazy when it comes to actually putting them away. So thats something Im def going to work on and pray about.

cooking:I have been cooking but just not anything different. a few weeks ago Ive cooked some yum yum spaghatti. And a whole lot of breakfast egg omelets sandwiches.

projects: so I have another baby shower coming up in May. Its actually a baby shower dinner but Im still doing the invitations. Im also thinking about doing some baby diaper cases for her that way she’ll have a unique gift and I’ll be able to take some pics of how I did it.  I told one of the store managers that I work at that I knew how to sew and I told her I’ll sew her a wallet to show off my skills. Also my friend had her baby!! yay…I still have to do the baby book for her too so thats another good project I have to complete.

My belief: So having faith is hard! lol. but I got it. Recently I started reading this wonderful book called “You are what you think” great read Im almost done but I wish it would go on forever! Its basically teaching about our self talk and not only does he give biblical examples of our self-talk but also medical and physicalogical examples that have proven that what we actually think, say, and visualize has a huge impact on our lives and the situations that we encounter. its amazing really. Im happy I picked it up. Also recently Ive been having alot of fear in my mind about things that are coming up. Things that involve: death, failing at life, not having my own, not moving on in my life ect…but Im not going to fear those things that I cant control over. I believe I will live a long prosperious life with my husband and our future kids. I WILL be a success and do the things I love. And not only that, but show others Gods glorious love for us. How amazing he is. Not I speak life and I will continue to do so. If God be for me, who can be against me??? anyone? lol Ive actually been intending to do a little projects concerning my fears. I’ll share more about that later.

Hair care: has been bad lately. lol. I usually wash my hair every monday but I got off track because of my work schedule so one week it was friday, now Im struggling with when I wash my hair. I didnt do it friday a couple of days ago cause I was working that day and now Im back to my reg mondays off. Last week I blowed dyed my hair out (heat protected of course!) and weared my hair practically pinned up or in a high bun. I enjoyed doing different things since ive worn my hair curly since last sept. After I staighten my hair out the last time I couldnt get enough but I think its time to go back to my curls. Altho people love the straight look, I love my curls and so do the people around me. Im really need to get on the ball with washing and deep conditioning again. Lets see if I can make it my arm pit length. Im hoping by the time my birthday rolls around (August 10) I’ll get it restraighten and see how far I have to go after that.

School: well I have decided!!!! IM GOING TO NAIL TECH SCHOOL!!! lol. Idk when I made that choice but I did but Im making sure Im still hearing from God just in case he’s trying to stir me another way. Nail technician is only a temperary career. Im actually pretty excited about it. I want to see how far I can go and also the extra income would do wonders for me and my husband. I’ll probably be a happy person looking forward to my life after this ❤

Money money money! Money!: we’re still doing well with the money issue. Almost done paying some of these bills off…I think all the bills are just about 300 dollars and lower so thats just wonderful. I cant wait to just pay them off and not owing anyone anything! Praise God. We’re still saving up our money. Weve just recently made it to 1,000+ in our saving so Im thankful that God has helped us with that!

Let me see, I think thats all pretty much. 4th month in our year and we have a long time to go til the end of the year. Im started to learn not be so hard on myself (something that the pastor that I went to go see told me that I was). Learning how to take the “shoulds” out of my life (thats from the book) and just learning how to enjoy the little joy I do have. Anyway, mores to come. I cant abandon this blog yet!

As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and ‘sinners’?”

On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:9-12

Redeem: verb; to buy or pay off; clear by payment, to recover, to convert, to make up for,make amends for, to discharge or fulfill

 used in a sentence:

And that’s the way it was with us before Christ came. We were like children; we were slaves to the basic spiritual principles of this world. But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.God sent him to REDEEM those who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father”. Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.

Gal 4:3-7

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the REDEEMED of the Lord say this—

those he REDEEMED from the hand of the foe,those he gathered from the lands,

from east and west, from north and south.

Psalm 107:1-3

LET THE REDEEM OF THE LORD SAY SO!

I AM REDEEMED

PRAISE HIM!!!!

So…heres my length check…

My sides are to my collar bone

and my bangs fall just slightly above my jaw bone

I guess its important to say that my hair is also in layers sooo….yea. lol

There it is. Let the hair challenge begin

My plan is to wash my hair every week, detangle, (Mondays), deep condition and style. I will def be doing some protective styling but I love twist out so low maintence styles are key. During the middle of my week (Depending on when I have time) I will rinse my hair with water keeping it moisterized. I havent really found anything to to help my scalp (I have crazy build-up) but Im still reasearching oils and whatnot! Wish me luck!!! ❤
