what do you do with a scurvy pirate? what do you do with a scurvy pirate? what do you do with a scurvy pirate? MAKE HIM WALK THE PLANK! Rachel just came over and Elliott is thrilled to not be asleep. Since her arrival, they have not ceased to tap into their imagination - pirates seeking treasure.
I can't believe it is already the 18th of September. And to tell the truth, I honestly didn't think i could make it this far. Praise the Lord for His grace. Each new day, i am amazed once more of the ability God has. that though i come short, though i am weak, though i have nothing to offer, He realizes that i am only dust. And like the woman who came to Jesus asking for a resurrection for her son, He looks at her with Compassion, and says in His own way, " I Am Willing!" Thank you Lord for Your willingness to put up with rubbish.

recently i have been finding new blogs that i am really enjoying. each of these blogs seem to come one thing in common- a love for cooking and portraying it in such a beautiful way. seeing this, almost to the point of envy, i thought to myself, " i could totally do that". i enjoy cooking very much however there is not always time or ingredients or money to get those ingredients. But when i can i have so much fun. another thing that comes with me baking is that i get the sudden urge to throw a party. so some one is either gonna have to get engaged or married or have a baby... i need to throw a party.

God has been opening and closing doors like crazy as of late; demanding my trust. The newest venture of faith for me currently is in stepping into a new role as the worship leader for Calvary Chapel San Juan Capistrano. I am so excited to be doing such and leaning on the Lord for His strength as my weakness will undoubtedly show. though, I am reminded often (through the scriptures) that I come short in no gift. So if you're ever in San Juan Capistrano on a Sunday morning, stop by and say hello. I would love to see you. And even if your not in the area... stop by anyway. It's always encouraging to see familiar faces. Service starts at 10:00 am! (5 fwy. south coming from costa mesa- get off on Ortega HWY and turn right.) And to make matters way better, the most amazing starbucks is located right on the corner. so, stop by. - we'll do lunch!

Last night my cousin Danyelle and I attended our annual angel game. From the moment we sat down till we got up to leave, the strangest things happened. okay, maybe not strange but interesting... interesting fun. In the first inning the umpire took a hit to the Adam's apple with the ball. wooosh! and He was down. It looked so painful, but through the grace of God he was up and back in the game. then (because danyelle and i dont do this often ),a faul ball came flying through the air, and at least looked like it was heading to us. Danyelle stood up to grab it but i think she miss judged the distance. Some guy even yelled, " Sit Down!" in the most unencouraging way.... the whole stadium effectively did the wave in unison. it was amazing! although the down side of this was, that as we were all focusing on the wave, another faul ball came flying through the air and hit some lady in the crotch. thank God she was sitting, so it more so fell in her lap. And the stadium did some special things because it was September 11th.
