Happy Christmas!!!

This was a Christmas that takes the cake for sure. I had a bumpy road getting here but it was well worth it. My whole family was here to Celebrate, the Christmas Eve celebration at my Grandpa's went spectacularly well, and today? Well, today was simply lovely! The Lord truly is Good. Thank you Jesus for putting on humanity in order to die for my sin. We bless Your name.

sit tight

Well its 2:25 on christmas morning and for some reason i am still wide awake. I just got back from my second batch of christmas festivities and am eager for tomorrows final salutation.
Christmas eve was kind of a rough one. I pretty much spent all day in San Juan sound checking for the evenings worship set. On the way home, driving on the freeway, my Car made a funny noise. Seconds later I had lost all control of the steering wheel. By the grace of God i found my way to the side of the freeway and waited for help. Later i found out a belt on my car fell out causing the power steering to go out.

All is calm. All is bright.

Merry Christmas friends!

Round and round they go

Early November I had promised my nephew Elliott a ride on the train at Crystal Court or the train at Fashion Island. Since either would do we road the one at Crystal Court. Finally, after counting the weeks the day had arrived! Today was Elliott's day and actually proved to be my Niece Caiden's as well.

keeping in theme of the christmas spirit...

Last night the gang and I went to fountain Valley to look at what we thought was going to be a spectacular christmas display. I say this because some of the displays were quite freaky. Dispite the freaky dolls standing on the front lawns and the "missing baby Jesus", the night actually ended quite well. We had fun.

TJ'S ... check


So today i started to eat raw. one of my friends is a trainer and she had been talking about it... sounded interesting so now im doing it. I know i am shocking at least one of you out there. probably Cryn. she is always surprised when i eat something different. hahah! like the one time i had duck or the time i ate vegetarian... for lunch...threw her whole day completely off. ha! moving on...
Breakfast: orange

Lunch: lettuce wrap with and avocado cream sauce,cucumers, tomatoes, and onions... (man. i wish i had sprouts... i need to go to TJ's), dried cranberries, almonds and some other nuts, and alkaline water... KACHOW!

scrap the scraps

Originally I wanted to wrap all of my christmas gifts in newspaper to save money. Good idea, i thought. All i would need to do was make it look somewhat creative, throw a ribbon on it, and wall-ah, cheap wrapping...
so i start wrapping a couple of presents for one person on my list. lick- a- dee -split. Now onto the next person... wait! where's the paper? come to find out. my family no longer subscribes to the newspaper. are you kidding me? Now, I realize the paper is only like 75 Cents, but the whole purpose was to not pay ANYTHING. so i have about 7 gifts wrapped in newspaper and the rest in regular paper... now its time to just get over it.

the lone reed...

For some reason, in the midst of this rain we are having, a loan cigarette somehow found its way home with me. your probably asking yourself, "why is she posting about this?" well... cause I'm bored and honestly I have been having a rough couple of days and blogging makes me happy. The cigarette however never made its way into my life... so to clear up any conjecture, I do not smoke.

Faithful and True

I have been meditating on the Faithfulness of the Lord as of Late... as well as his Majesty. In church this morning we were talking about Jesus' triumphant entry, and how He came in peace riding on a donkey. The Crowds shouted with all there heart, Hosanna! Save Now! yet only a couple days later when He didn't do what they wanted him to or the way they wanted him to,they screamed with animosity, Crucify Him!
John, my pastor, Spoke of the temple being defiled with money changers, making it a den of thieves, and how he turned over the tables. Yet, bringing it all back challenging us to search our hearts to see if we have been defiling God's temple, in making it a den of thieves or what have you. There was alot to think about. Alot of tears and alot of burdens lifted. I love when the Lord does a work in His body that is external. it's a blessing to see hearts broken before the Lord that they may allow him to bind, build up, and heal. The thing that stuck out to me the most however, was when my pastor was talking about how, the first time Jesus came in peace but the second time he will come to make war. " Now i saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called FAITHFUL and TRUE, and in righteousness He judges and makes war"... Revelation 19:11 I LOVE the part about Him being called Faithful and True. because when my flesh doubts his faithfulness and truth, it doesn't strip him of his faithfulness and truth, He STILL remains faithful and true. praise God He does not waiver as my emotions do!!! Rest on that today!

Cello Rock

I used to hate the irvine spectrum... maybe that was just during the night time... (shrug) Anyway...
Today was wonderful. while strolling down the isles strewn with people, i heard a familiar sound making my heart leap. That sound that hugs you... Cello.
The cello drew me in. The pedals made me stay.... I sat down for a couple songs, clapping at the end of each song as if i made up the whole audience. Sitting there i thought, do i want a cd? yes. Are all the songs gonna sound the same? maybe?.. hmm.. Finally i figured: they are way too good to pass up. and USUALLY bands get better on their cd's - what with all the mastering and producing involved. Not so with this band. I will save there name from this piece because i feel the need to protect them. Though i was disappointed with the cd i purchased, i do love supporting the musical gifts that God gives, and would LOVe love LOVe to see them in concert sometime... they are simply lovely live! (disclaimer: i purchased only one of the three cds they have) this somehow seems to always happen to me
