Prompt: Making this [With Jesus]
The nearest thing to me was a bible track thing called The Good News.
First word - Making
Second word - This
Making this. I didn't like it so I decided to point again and I got the phrase "With Jesus."
-Making this with Jesus. Wow! What in the world just happened?
Who am I, and what have I made with Jesus? Those are the questions this prompt brings to me.
I am a follower of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I have many interests, and I am terrible in social situations, but I try anyway. I am in love with the American Pit Bull Terrier, I am in love with people who genuinely care and like to make others feel worth this shot at life. I love film photography and abstract art, I love wildlife and our common cat, I love this life and I thank my God for allowing me to live it, to enjoy it, and to show others by example that life is totally worth every breath we take.
I love to debate, I hate that I get angry with people, I hate to feel like a failure, and I hate that I get overwhelmed so easily. This is what I know of my identity. I love, I hate, I live and I look forward to life after death.
In this life what have I made, what have I done with Jesus? Here is where I begin to feel disappointed in myself though I know that is not what my Father wants. What have I made? What have I done with all that He has gifted me? I know I have spent time writing poetry to Him. I have gone on missionary trips, but there is something else I have to do for my God. I have to speak. I have to create. I need to make something.
Yesterday my mother and a friend of hers were placing toys in bags with candy for our Christmas trip down to Mexico next week. The toys were mostly the old mcdonalds and burger king toys, not in bad condition, but we were certainly short on toys. As I helped I wondered if I could crochet toys for the trip next year. If I could start now and just crochet away until December 2013. Could I do it? Would I give up half way through as I have so many times before? How many headless toys have I made and never finished? I have always been distracted by one of my other many interests. I felt like I was kidding myself if I thought I could actually make hundreds of little crocheted amiguramis for the children in Mexico. I dismissed the thought, I threw away the challenge. But this morning somehow it has come back in such a delightful way. I realize that of course I cannot do it on my own, I need someone's help, but whose? I need my Savior to help me as He has so many times before. He will get me through it.
Thank you Plinky for the reminder! I will begin to make amiguramis for the children and I will post my progress on my blog firstname.lastname@example.org !
I ask of my Lord that He give me the excitement, and the drive of a pit bull to see this project finished.
Making this with Jesus will be my Life's only goal. this year, next year and for the rest of my life!
- Three Nails Gave Me Liberty
Usually when I am asked this question I give an answer along the lines of:
I am a follower of Jesus Christ or I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
As in I believe in the God of the bible. Old testament prophecies and new testament salvation through Christ. I would not describe myself as religious because I see that as someone who simply goes through the motions. God drives me. In life I look to Him before I make decisions.Without Him in my life I would be a pretty screwed up person. So I believe in my Father and that he loves me and I have one purpose in my life and it is one I will gladly be apart of.
- This Book = A Moldy fly infested bag of Garbage
The whole second half of the book was horrible. I started the book with one thought: This is going to be a good one.
I was very wrong. The middle of the book slowly started to disappoint but I just knew that the ending had to be spectacular, right?
Unfortunately I just felt like I was reading some crazy journal. It wasn't her ability to write that I had a problem with, it was the story. I felt like I had been mislead on what it was about. It starts off with such a horrifying image and I honestly thought the ending must be rewarding if she's gutsy enough to start the book this way. The whole book is just a journal filled with some ladies fantasies. Everyone's gorgeous, and everyone has a generic personality. I never felt more disconnected with a book. Where was the reality? Did I just read someone's twisted fantasy??
And the reward : rollercoasters and lollipops. Literally. I don't know what the point was. Was it really just a story she wanted us to enjoy (if that is the case then this story is still crap) or does she really believe in ghosts and she's trying to emphasize that those who talk to the dead are actually worshiped by the dead and have a very important role in life (Which is just silly)?
I was pissed, I would've burned the book if it wasn't for the fact that it wasn't mine.
I mean maybe if she would have put more emphasis on the sister's newborn, it wouldn't have been so bad, but she didn't. She only mentions it for a second then gives us a ridiculous ending to the Murderer's part of the story, and feeds us candy. So overwhelmingly disappointed.
- Writing always keeps the mind going.
I usually embrace my late night insomnia. I turn to my pen and paper. Nothing like listening to your favorite songs and writing til the sun knocks you out. As of late, however I've been turning to this website. Which has made me a little sad, imma lie down...

My Kitty-Cat. He's been the best pet ever in this life. That way I wouldn't have to be sad when he goes. :D
