.a new post for a new day.

I despise being sick. It's so aweful.....last night I was so cold I slept on my couch next to the fireplace...and when I woke up....I was pretty much sweating to death....hahaha......I felt like Ace Ventura when he got stuck inside that mechanical rhino.....haha.....okay....maybe it wasn't quite THAT BAD!!!!! But yeah....and my voice sounds like a man's now....and it's really lame. And I'm pretty sure something green and slug like emerged from my lungs this morning....yeah....you shouldn't have read that.....that's SO DISCUSTING......I just hate being sick.......

On a possitive note....one of my favorite people sent me a sweet verse today!!!
Isaiah 26: 3-4
"You, LORD, give true peace to those who depend on you, because they trust you.
So, trust the LORD always, because he is our Rock forever."

.Just another reason why I love my Brother.

"Once upon a time there was a little porpoise named Miki. Miki was a kind tempered porpoise and he liked to swim through the beautiful sea around him to see what he could see. There came a day in this young porpoise's life that he had to choose a job. He thought and thought for hours on end but could not choose what to do. He thought about being a show porpoise, you know the kind that do tricks for people at aquariums. But then he thought "that's no good, the whales get all the attention" so he thought about being a football team mascot, and how fun it would be travel with the team and see the country from a private tank. But the more he though the more trouble he had deciding what do become.
Eventually he went to see a porpoligist [ its a physocligist for porpoises ] and the porpoligist said you need to find your purpose in life. What's my purpose? Said the porpoise with an inquisitive voice. "Why your a porpoise and you don't know your purpose" replied the porpoligist with a surprise.
Yes, the porpoise said with a hint of embarrassment.
"Your purpose as a porpoise is to properly punish all the people on the planet who don't know a dolphin from a porpoise."

The end"

.I love the mountain.

I must just say, I love the mountain. It's amazing. I went snowboarding yesterday and it was amazing. Totally blue bird, soft snow, I burned my little face.....aww sick goggle tan....haha!!! yeah....it was super duper fun and crazy times. Yesterday was also the first day of the season I kept falling and hurting myself....off jumps, in the pipe, trying to work on my switch.....falling, hurting, painful, my lower back is killing me today....but it's all worth it, because snowboarding is amazing!!!! That's my story, and these are my pics.....enjoy!!!!

.just a little jog, and only slightly embarassing.

Today, I got off work at 3:30, which meant there was still enough light outside to go for a jog....amazing, I thought to myself. I immediatelly dashed home, well okay, I lied, I drove, but dash is just such a sweet word. Okay...now that we have the dashing down, moving onward in this story....I went home grabbed my ipod and headed out for my jog. Whenever I jog, I rock out to my ghetto fabulous dance tunes.....and I usually have a beat or two in my step.....a.k.a. I like to dance then jog, then bust a move, and continue jogging, and then for the finally I try to make up a good music video scenario and play it out in person....but today was a little different, today I jogged passed an elementary school with really sweet big windows that worked as amazing reflectors/mirrors for me and my bust out dance skills......needless to say...I started doing my "thang" and a few seconds later I hear people shouting at me.....yeah.....a group of high school kids spotted me from across the park and were shouting at me because they totally caught me in the middle of 6 step, beat droppin' smooth rockin' imaginary music video.....it was only slightly embarassing....I'll survive I'm sure. hahaha......

.Rising Up.

I wrote a new song....a few days ago...it's a song of desperation for faith and hope in God. It goes like this:

Find me Here
As I draw Near
in Your Name.

I can feel you rising up, rising up

It's like the world's oceans you've placed in my cup

I can feel you rising up, rising up

You can change the world, simply with Your love.

Hold me to Your heart
Grant me, just one more fresh start
Won't you hold me ever closer Lord.

.Words of Wisdom from Donald Miller.

"The truth is there are a million steps, and we don't even know what the steps are, and worse, at any given moment we may not be willing or even able to take them; and still worse, they are different for you and me and they are always changing. I have come to believe the sooner we find this truth beautiful, the sooner we will fall in love with the God who keeps shaking things up, keeps changing the path, keeps rocking the boat to test our faith in Him, teaching us to not rely on easy answers, bullet points, magic mantras, or genies in lamps, but rather in His guidance, His exixtence, His mercy, and HIS LOVE." ~Donald Miller from Searching For God Knows what.
