Last Post in July... how crazy is that???

So, since I have nothing better to share, I got this e-mail and found it pretty neat and thought I'd share! :-)

A friend sent this to me and I thought it was interesting so figured I's share. I hope you all have a wonderful last day of July or for some of you, the beginning of a wonderful month of August!

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... all before making a human. He made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw. We're such slow learners...

God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!

God's Pharmacy! Amazing!
PhotobucketA sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

PhotobucketA Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

PhotobucketGrapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

PhotobucketA Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

PhotobucketKidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

PhotobucketCelery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

PhotobucketAvocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

PhotobucketFigs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

PhotobucketSweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

PhotobucketOlives assist the health and function of the ovaries

PhotobucketOranges , Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

PhotobucketOnions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Psalm 46:19
'Be Still and Know that I AM GOD'

So, in reading this I have learned that I need to eat Avocadoes, Eggplant, Pears, Sweet Potatoes, Olives, Oranges , Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits and Charles needs to be pumped full of Figs huh so I can get knocked up?? :-) So, anyone ever try this diet?? LOL I thought Pomograntes(sp?) were also good for ferility???

So regarless if I make fun of this, I think it is pretty neat and just goes to show that the more science studies God's creation, the more they see how HE, our CREATOR designed everything to work hand in hand... How awesome is that??

Well only five months left in 2008! I hope you all live every day to the fullest!!! But, more importantly... only 21 days until my husband joins me PERMANENTLY!!!! :-)

Job updates...

Well, still nothing from the Bethany lady so I'm totally assuming I did not get it. I'm going to continue to pursue her though once a week until I get a direct answer one way or another though!!! :-)

This morning I did get a phone call to schedule an interview for a home study person... Very interested in that one.

I also got an e-mail telling me I have been scheduled to attend the social service worker's written exam on August 9!!! :-) This is very exciting as I would get in the field and gain EXPERIENCE!!!!! That's the key word everyone is looking for! YEAH!!!! So, we shall see...

I know God has the job out there already waiting so I'm just going through the motions until it comes through! I've still got the job working Part-time at Lowe's and still going through the training...

Will update as I learn something new!!!! Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!! :-)

Mane n Tail trial

Yesterday I learned something new. :-) Surprised? I read about Mane n Tail (it's originally made for horses) and how many women with PCOS have had great success in using it! Yes, I still have a head full of hair but it's become so dull and breaks all the time and yeah. So, after reading pages after pages after pages on this, I decided to head straight to Sally's to get some! Today was my first day using it and already my hair is less frizzy!!!! :-) That's amazing!!!! LOL I read that you should give it two weeks to really see a difference and maybe I'll get my hair to grow longer and thus I'll get more than one hair cut every year?? Perhaps...

BTW, I used the Extra Conditioning Shampoo and regular conditioner and a detangler. :-) I'll update on how my "trial" is going in the future!

WATCH THE VIDEOS!

That's really all I wanted to say. Watch those two videos by Mark Schultz I just added. Really watch them. Listen to them. Have a tissue, or a box of tissues handy. :-)

Oh, and yeah. The new layout. Not so hot. I'm working on that... Eventually!



And the STORY behind the song...

My husband is HILARIOUS... Not so much.

Since I have nothing else to share, I figured I would share this! :-)

This morning I got a phone call about a position with the local Animal Shelter, full time worker. I would be in charge of coordinating pet adoptions both individually and at like Petsmart and such. So, I'm telling my lovely husband about this and he kind of chucked and then said, "Hey! You'd at least be working in Adoptions..." haha! So very funny!

So, I have this interview at 2pm. Of course he also had to say that I'm not allowed to talk about "work" with him as dogs are our weakness... He's anticipating a house FULL of dogs if I get this job! LOL

On the OTHER Adoption front, no news so I guess I still consider it good news?? I dunno... She has not called my references yet either so I'm thinking I'm out of the running BUT God willing something will come thru!!!! :-)

Interview Update

Hey guys and gals! The interview went well, I think. :-) I'm still REALLY excited about the position and feel as though my passion for this field would greatly benefit Bethany and the girls I meet with! I'm trying to remain level headed about it as I know that I'm not the ideal person she was looking for (as I do not have my Master's or previous paid experience) but I do have a passion and life experiences so maybe that'll weight out... :-) I have no clue when to expect to hear back from her as she said she is not in a rush to hire someone as she wants to make sure it is the right individual for the position... So now I wait. :-) Whatever happens is meant to happen. I laid my heart out on the line and that's all I could do.

But, it was an amazing and so totally unlike any other interview I have ever been to in my life! Like we talked about God and having a relationship with Him and how that effects our lives and such... We talked like we were out having coffee or something, not in an interview! And this was all totally her lead. It was awesome! :-)

So, that's that. :-) I'll let you know what happens as in, if I get the job or not!

"Unanswered Prayers"

So, figured I would share my laugh out loud moment I had at God a few hours ago... :-)

It all started by my driving to Bethany Christian Services (where I am having my interview tomorrow morning at 8AM and am SO excited about!) to make sure that I can get there and such. Well, before I even left my neighborhood I informed God that I was going to spend this time chatting with Him. I prayed. I talked. I asked. I prayed. I talked some more. I asked for some more. I thanked. I thanked Him more. I finally said I'm going to shut up now so talk to me... (The drive was about 45 minutes) I got to the agency and then decided that was I was heading back home I would stop in to the mall I passed if I could ever find it again thanks to the MAJOR highway road closings. I finally found it. Went in. walked around. No fear honey, I didn't buy anything as I didn't really see anything I liked. :-) I left. On my way home a friend called. We chatted. Got off the phone and habit, I turned on the radio. Well, the last station it was on was a country station and the sound playing was "Unanswered Prayers". I literally laughed out loud at God! Yes God, I hear you... Loud and clear! :-)

Although I can only see tomorrow and what tomorrow would mean if I got the job, God is the one that sees and is working the BIG plan He has in store for me. Whatever tomorrow brings is all in HIS plan and I am accepting of that. Whatever it is. Good or bad. My ideal or not. I must and AM trusting in Him... I also had the bright idea to apply this to other areas of my life. Well, when I told God I was. He reassured me that I was not. That I was still trying to control the whole baby aspect of my life and that I just need to give it over. As it goes again, whenever it is in HIS plan is when or if we'll have kids...

So, pray for me! Pray for me today. Pray for me tomorrow. Pray for me in a week and in a month and a year from now! I pray for you too...

Now, I must go and find something to wear to this interview tomorrow morning!!!!

Search...OVER!

For those that were worried I was going crazy the other day with that last post, I'm all good now. :-) First off, I handled some things between God and myself. And now, 24 hours later than originally needed it, I have FOUND my checkbook!!!! :-) YIPPEE!!! I guess beggers can't be choosers in stuff, huh??

Okay, back to unpacking but let me say that I am very much in a better mood and in higher spirits today!!!! ;-) No fear, the sun is still shinning down upon me! I've got God's "love rays" bestowed upon my house and within my life! *For those that don't understand. I'll have to explain my "vision" that I've had ever since I was a child about the suns rays... :-)

And here's love from Missouri to you!!!!!

P.S. Notice the NEWness of the blog?? Yeah, scroll down and you'll see it! :-) What ya think? Gone overboard, not enough, or just right??

Is it hitting me yet??

It's been a rough day for me. :-( It started out okay, but as the day grew on things just came up. Not a whole lot in particular with one aspect but the combo of it all just sucks.

I started out the day trying a new church. 2 Rivers located in Wentzville, MO. I was late, of course, getting there but really enjoyed what I did hear. The only thing I do not agree with them on is that they are looking for a full-time preschool pastor and only will consider males for the position as they feel only males should be in these types of roles. I disagree with this. But hey, if this is the only thing I disagree with them on then we're doing a-okay!

I like the preaching. It was very much a life application message on Integrity. The worship, what I saw anyways, was really neat. Very contemporary like Crossroads and what I enjoy and am used to. They are currently meeting in a high school so I'm HOPING that it's due to being relatively new and not the lack of growth for whatever reason. :-)

Oh, and one of their songs they played that they learned from Big Stuf in Panama City, FL they attended on 06/18/08 time frame. Pretty neat! :-) I just cannot believe they DROVE from Wentzville, MO to Panama City, FL with all those middle/high schoolers!!!! LOL Boy am I glad I was not a chaperone on that trip!!! haha!

So, I contacted them about more information on their "Home Teams" aka Community Groups (Crossroads folks be proud, why? Becuase everyone needs to be in a Community Group!!! See, I learned SOMETHING after going for what, 17 years? LOL)

The rest of the stuff is not appropriate to post on here. But just know it's really starting to wear on me that I know NO ONE here. I ask people what to do/where to meet people around here and I get the usual "Bars, clubs, etc" and I'm like um, those are not the type of people I want to meet though! I want COUPLE friends here that Charles and I can hang out with when he gets here and live life with. This whole being without a job, sucks. I miss my husband who is 6+ hours from me and whom I will not be able to see again until he is permanently here August 21... My dogs are driving me insane with their attention wanting and being in a new place and not having a yard and all.

Oh, and I have managed to "lose" my checkbook. I put that in quotations as I KNOW it's here, somewhere. I just could have sworn it was in my blue basket I always kept it in along with the Verizon bill to be paid and sure enough I knew exactly where the blue basket was but no checkbook OR Verizon bill... ARGH! I NEED this checkbook for tomorrow to get my renters/car insurance at noon AND to just dag gum balance my book!!! (Yes dad. You should be proud that I balance my checkbook.) ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've walked all around our house a thousand times talking/screaming/laughing/begging/pleading/asking God to reveal my checkbook to me and I imagine Him walking beside me going "hot, hot, hot, hot, hotter, hotter, hotest, hotest, HOT, HOT, HOT, COLD! Woman, what are you thinking?? You were RIGHT there!!!" I am no longer unpacking boxes in an appropriate manner but more like dumping the boxes in the middle of the floor throughout our house and rummenging through the stuff and when no checkbook to be found I do this to more boxes and then change rooms as the floor is COVERED in crap!

Oh, and I'm so nervous and excited about this job, or shall I use the term CAREER, interview I have on Thursday!!! I want this position SO bad!!! I feel like it's so exactly what I'm looking for and the potential to move into other positions (aka, Adoption Associated Specific) and just move up. I'm just nervous as I don't know if I would be good at the position... I guess it is a good thing the interview is so far out as I can get all my ducks in a row but bad as I stew over the position and what it would mean both the good and the bad...

Okay, I guess since I've run out of things to post about now I should get back to dumping boxes out on the floor and shuffling through them... Oh the joys of moving! haha!!! Pray for my sanity, k?? :-)

Time for another post...

Well, not a whole lot of something important to say but figured I'd update just for the heck of it. :-) I'm no longer working for that nanny family I moved here to work for. Let's just all say that they were crazy and well, I quit. I'm not going into details... ;-)

On another note. I am officially the owner of airspace! LOL I got my internet connected today and how exciting it is to be able to use the internet whenever I please without having to hold my tounge a certain way! :-)

Um, other news... Well, I've been looking for a job. That's exciting... NOT! I DO have an interview July 17, Thursday though at 8AM! I'm SOOOOOO excited as it's with an adoption agency! I'll go into details at a later point. As in, if I walk away with the position! Just be praying for this as THIS is the position and the organization I've dreamed of working for over the last several years!!!! I may not have all the qualifications that they want, but I sure do have the desire to learn and the passion to do so! I just have to remember that whatever God has in store for me is what will come to happen and I'll be accepting of whatever that shall be! :-)

Um, let's see if I can think up any additional news... Well, I haven't physically met anyone yet but thanks to the internet, I have been invited to attend a BBQ (or shall I saw Braai??) that a bunch of couples attend in the next city over. She said they're all in their 20's so that's cool. :-) I have also chatted with two other gals who live in this area so I believe I'll be a-okay! If you're wondering. I posted an ad on craigslist about a couples group thing and this is where I got the response from. :-) Seems legit. I'll let you know how it goes! LOL The BBQ is July 19... Awaiting more details. I'm very excited though! It'll just be nice to KNOW people here in the area! FINALLY!!!!

K. So. I think I've pulled enough out of thin (haha) air to chat about for now. I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July and are anticipating a great weekend to come! :-)

Here are some LONG awaited photos...

Okay, since I cannot figure out how to get this darn thing to work, You've gotta just work with me on the whole order of these photos, k?? :-)


Me, Me at Graduation (YES! College graduate here!!!), Mom and I, Charles and I, Charles and I, and Charles goofin'. The goofy ones of Charles and I were taken Fourth of July weekend when he came to Lake Saint Louis, MO for the first time to see where our new home is! :-)



















So, think I should add some in here of the pups too?? :-) Heck, why not!














New job = No job

So, I started my first day with the new nanny family yesterday and it was crazy. I'm not going into details on the World Wide Web but let's just say as of this afternoon, I am officially jobless. I've been "pounding the pavement" in the hopes of finding a new one. I REALLY would like to find a job USING my degree, at least a job that requires a degree in the first place! I feel like a failure having this four year degree I worked so dang hard for and all I am is a nanny?? I know, nanny's are important but why aren't I earning more money with this degree??

Anyways, I'm looking for a job so if anyone has any connections here in good ole Missouri I'd GREATLY appreciate it!!!!! :-)

HELLO Lake Saint Louis, Missouri

This morning Daniel and I left Dad and Jodi's driveway at 6:33am. Me, for the last time calling Georgia home and him, just for a little "vacation" if you would even call it that... :-) Tears were shed. Hugs and kisses given. Goodbye's said. We left at the PERFECT time! We escaped virtually ALL traffic it was WONDERFUL! :-)

The trip was okay. Nothing exciting, thankfully. Daniel slept or listened to his music 90% of the way while I jammed to my own music (you know Backstreet Boys was booming!) and sang to the top of my lungs without hurting any poor bystanders ears. We drugged the dogs (Thank God for xanax for dogs!!!) and they were the best! I'll NEVER take another road trip with the dogs without this miracle drug!!! This photo is proof that he slept... Just not for how long! LOL



We made it to Lake Saint Louis about 5pm CST (Yes, Missouri is one hour behind EST aka Georgia) and it was excellent. The house was not exactly what I envisioned but as the days progress, I'm getting more and more used to it especially as our stuff fills the rooms instead of focusing on stained carpets, poorly painted walls, and small rooms... The basement with the HUGE rec room is my absolute favorite!!!! We've got the big screen TV set up down there and plan on putting all the game systems and such along with it! It's awesome!!!

So, looking back that's about it for the first day. Yes, I'm actually writing this on July 8 but am dating it the day it occured, k? :-)
