Why, oh why, must we pay for things? Why can't it all be free? We can do like on Couples Retreat and pay in smiles! :D That bought the groceries :D That paid the house bill :D Car bill taken care of :D What electric bill?... the list goes on and on. I would gladly use real money for the stuff that is just a want, but the needs.. you should have to be so stressed and worried about them. It shouldn't be this hard to pay a bill!

Each person has something they are better at than any of the people around them. It may be singing, dancing, architecture, house building, decorating,.. anything. And just because you aren't the best doesn't mean that you can't do whatever it is, but if you're not good at it at all then you should probably leave it for someone who is good at it. Don't torture everyone around you with your incapability, it may just cause everything to have to be redone by someone more experienced...

How I wish I could live my families lives for them.. just so I could show them how good God is and how much their lives could change, but I can't I can only pray for them and be the example.
It's a hard place to be, to just sit there and hope and pray that they notice the difference between your life and theirs and that they'll want what you have. They don't realize the amount of tears that you've cried for them and how important the "God thing" really is. And lets be honest being the example is tiring. We're human, right? We want what we want and we want it now. I know God's timing is perfect and maybe it doesn't make sense, it may not ever make sense why it can't be when we first ask, but I know that if I keep praying and I keep being the example that my sister and my brother and their clans and the rest of my family will be saved. That's better than any Christmas present, Birthday present, or anything that they could ever give me. I just want them saved... Help me be the example that my family and this world need to see!

I would like to make known that many of the pictures I use are not my own and that I find them on Google. So thank you to whoever has posted many of the photos I use. I appreciate it and you should know that I used you picture because I liked it and thought it would fit best :D (Just in case anyone ever notices)
I would first like to state that the idea of this topic and a few others were given to me by my friend, Spencer. Now on to the subject.
Yes, I have 3 pets and I can tell you by experience that they do in fact have feelings.
Have you ever heard/seen a pet cry? They cry when they are sad It could be that they feel left out, they want attention, they've been abandoned by their owner, they're mistreated,....
If they are well taken care of they will show love
But if you treat them wrong they'll hate their owner :( That just shouldn't be by the way.. treat your animals right!
Another example would be if you've ever had a party or just a few friends over and at some point you look around and notice hey "pets name" hasn't been around in a while, so you go to look for them and they're hiding under the bed.. guess what they're probably scared of all the noise and the people.
One of my absolute favorites, which is kinda mean and I understand that, but I'm trying to show my love. Have you ever held your pet when they just absolutely didn't want to be held? They got mad at you didn't they? They'll also get mad if you leave them alone for to long.
I hope pet owners already knew this, but if not I hope it was an eye opener. And keep in mind these are only a few examples. I'm sure all of you pet owners have a lot more examples. Feel free to comment :D
Baby Dedications are very important. No, we don't baptize the baby, but we are giving that baby back to God. We are stating that we will teach that baby the way to go and when God calls them that we will allow them to do God's will and support and encourage them. And lets be honest yes, they can be boring, but they are important to that child and the family.

I was amazed when earlier today I watched Cast Q&A on NBC.com for The Office. I saw how different most of the actors/actresses where from their characters. Angela is definitely the most different from her character, which she is also named Angela in The Office. Her character is very quiet, christian, old time and to see her she is just like the total opposite. Now in the Cast Q&A they couldn't decide who was the most like their character so they chose 2 people that they thought were pretty equally like their character and that was B.J. who plays as Ryan and Mindy who plays as Kelly. Now I don't see much of these characters so I can't really have my own opinion about that. Watch The Office :D <3
I <3 The Office! At first, I was very weirded out by it, how they're staring at the camera and they go to the conference room and talk to the camera, answer questions, or just say how they feel about thing. It's slightly awkward for a show. It's definitely different than any other show I've ever seen. After you see the humor in it you become addicted to The Office though. It's rareness makes it very interesting. It's characters are very different from each other.
Michael who is the Boss and is always trying to make a joke he is definitely unlike any other boss ever he always tries hard to make people like him and to make people get along.
Jim is a Sales Rep., he loves to play pranks, and he has the same thing to eat for lunch every day.
Pam is the Receptionist she loves to play pranks, she wears sweaters and non-revealing clothing and is very interesting when drunk.
Dwight is the best Salesman of the company, he's very serious worker who people are always playing pranks on, but he has a not so secret relationship going on with someone in the office.
Angela well what can you say about Angela, she's Head of Accounting, she is definitely a perfectionist and is set in more of old time ways, she's not the most friendly person and she loves cats, she's also the leader of the Party Planning Committee.
Kevin is in Accounting and has the cuddly bear thing going on, he says nice a lot, and he loves bowling, and golfing.
Oscar is in Accounting and is the only gay guy in the office, he is very smart, and he hates Angela's baby posters.
Stanley is a Sales Rep. and is the only black person in the office and he is a very serious person, he loves Pretzel Day and Crossword Puzzles.
Phyllis is a Sales Rep. and is married to Bob Vance, Vance Refridgeration, she wears purfume that everyone hates, and she is part of the Party Planning Committee.
Andy is a Sales Rep. and has anger issues, he loves to sing, he plays the bango, and he went to Cornell.
Creed is over Quality Assurance and has 4 toes on one foot, was in a band in the 70's, and has the attention span of 90 seconds.
Ryan is a Temp and has been in and out of the company and he doesn't really like anybody in the office.
Kelly is in Customer Service and loves to talk, do online shopping, and fashion.
Toby is an HR Rep. and is known as the downer of all the fun that goes on, but he sits back in his office and plays games with Kelly.
Darryl is the Warehouse Supervisor, he's got some great ideas for the office, and he's a funny guy.
Meredith is the Supplier Relations Representative and the alcoholic, she will also sleep with anyone and makes deals to sleep with them.
And there are more people from in the warehouse and people that have come and gone in the office. As you can see they all are very different, but all together they make a very interesting work family that is fun and loving. And if you give them a try I know you'll learn to love them. You will laugh when they laugh, cry when they cry, hurt when they hurt,.. well you get it. GO OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay so I LOVE getting things in the mail that are for me (except for bills) But since we moved into our house we keep getting mail from Cigna for some guy who used to live here.. we've been here since May and we've received like... i don't know 5 or 6 things in the mail from Cigna for this guy. You'd think after this many letters and the guy not getting back to you you'd say forget it nope not them. And they don't have a place where you can just send an e-mail oh no, you have to call. Now I haven't called yet, but I'm not looking forward to it. I know how these places go you stinking call and talk to like 5 different people and your on hold for like 30 min to an hour and the people are really hard to understand because they are (no I'm not racist) Chinese or Indian or the occasional black, which I love black people (and all the other races. I'm as racist to my race as every other race, we all have our good and bad), but anyways they talk fast and it's like what?! lol. Of course you also have the people who talk SUPER slow so the conversation takes forever and all you need is just one little thing that should take like 2 min and it ends up being 5 min and don't forget the time it took to go through those other 4 people and the being on hold.. yeah, you're on the phone for a while. Don't get me wrong I know their job is no walk in the park you have to talk to all sorts of people been there done that and I feel sorry for them, but really hire more people or something! lol

First off I'll start by saying the military has done many great things and I appreciate that, but the real point is there is NO way I could ever be with someone who was in the military. They go through a lot and they put their families through a lot. I just watched a very touching video on facebook of people from the military coming back and surprising their family. They cried and I cried, I can't say I know exactly how they feel because I'm sure I can't even fully imagine it though I've had friends and even a past boyfriend go, but I know I can't imagine it all, but I can imagine enough for me to be in tears and even feel heartbroken at just the thought. So thank you for what you do, but don't try to take any more of my loved ones!

What is one soul worth? Is there really a cost that's to much? So many times in life we fail at soul winning. We say that it's to much money to give them a ride to church, or to pay the groceries for the person who can't afford them, give clothes to the people in need,... or whatever excuse we might have for what ever situation presents itself to us.
Matthew 25:42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
We are to treat every human being as if it was Jesus. Jesus knocks on the door "come on in" or He needs a ride "hop on in", clothes "no problem", food "take as much as you need",... The scripture clearly states that not helping others is like not helping Jesus when He's in need.
I know I'm not perfect and I've failed as well, but just imagine the excitement in heaven if we all joined together to help those in need. It would be just, WOW.
♫♪George, George, George of the jungle strong as he can be..♫♪ So I happen to like George of the Jungle it's a very funny, weirdly romantic, comedy. I used to watch it all the time with a friend who's last name just so happens to be George. (Which, we never talk anymore.. that's besides the point) Anyways it's very funny. And I'm pretty sure I've never liked Brendan Fraser in any other movie as much as I do in George of the Jungle (Though Inkheart and The Mummy Series are pretty good too)

Truth it's a powerful thing. So why if you know the truth would you run from it? Those who know the truth should be very afraid for their souls, they can be judged. You can't be judged on what you don't know. So if you know the truth, please, please I beg you, do NOT run! Be strong in the Lord! He'll never leave you, only you do the leaving. If you're with someone who doesn't believe don't let that stop you because guess what they don't have to understand at first, but don't risk your own soul. Stay strong pray for your spouse they'll eventually come. Just remember God knows what He's doing and he has the perfect timing!
Marriage is a wonderful thing that so many people take for granted. Yes, marriage isn't easy, it's a lot of hard work, but if you really love the person you're with you'll stick it out. If you put enough hard work and dedication into your marriage you can make it through anything. Will you always agree no, but understand that you are different than your spouse and that it's ok to be different. You won't always like the same food, games, friends,... but that's not what brought you together it was the love you shared. In the hard times just think back to what it was that made you fall in love in the first place and I promise between remembering that, being understanding, and putting some hard work into it you'll make it through!
I LOVE to play the Sims! I play it on the PS2, Wii, and soon on the Xbox 360, I have played it on the computer, but it's not my favorite way to play. Anyways, have you ever wondered why the Sims game (any of them) is so addicting?? I occasionally think about it. I means yes, it gets you away from your boring life and you can run someone else's life. You can make your Sims life as good or as bad as you want, but can't you kinda do the same thing with your own life if you try hard enough? So what is it? I mean I totally love playing any of the Sims games, but I have no clue why. Any thoughts from those of you who love Sims??

(Just a thought) Isn't it so weird how friends come and go? At the time when you're friends you think you'll be friends forever. But for whatever reason, whatever circumstances you become distant and then you just don't talk all together. I know there are different kinds of friends A.) the ones that really aren't your friend B.) the ones that are there for a season in your life and C.)the ones that are meant to stay there forever. Question is how do you know which kind of friend they are supposed to be? And how do you deal with the loss of those friends? I've had many friends that I know were just there to get me through a part of my life, but I can't help but feel sad knowing that there was a strong connection that is now gone. It's good to know that no matter how many friends stay or go that Jesus will always be the best friend, who sticks closer than a brother.
