Good morning Starshine...

...the earth says HELLO!

Ok Ok so I CAN'T stop saying that! Every since last weekend! It was great too I got a bunch of the kids that went on the retreat this weekend saying it! Speaking of the retreat it was great, such a good time to connect with some of those "over zealous" teenagers that don't usually sit still for 5 minutes. It was good to in the way I encountered God, not in the "typical" sense of the word. I mean there was not a dramatic moment where I was eleviated from all that has been burdening me over the past semester or anything like that but it was great to just spend time talking about God and rembering what it was like to be on the "faith journey" even though I never walked off it. It's all one big journey. This semester was soo hard, I held back more tears than I can ever imagine and I actually held it in and told no one, why? I couldnt' put it into words...I had a hard heart. I finally understood what that was, as soon as I finally admitted to myself and then started to to others that this was what was going on i began the journey back up the mountain *for all those "Hinds Feet" Girls* and I'm slooooooooooowwwwwwwwwllllly rising but there is nothing wrong with that. It's all part of the Journey...and I'm taking it with God.

It was nice cuz the weekend was spent on Seymour Mountain, not quite at the snowhill but about three quarters up and it was great...we woke up sunday morning to snow! AND it's suppose to snow here tonight! But alas I dont want to get my hopes up, it may not snow and if it does it WON'T last.

"You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you."
*sigh* James Blunt, saying it like it is

Hey did you know...

...that gold is the language everyone understands! LAME, that was a catch phrase on a Kay Jewlers commercial, I found that lame so I'd thought I'd share with you all!

**the next lines must be read out loud with a lateral lisp**

Speaking of sharing things with you amasing people, I'm almost overwhelmed by the masses in which people are coming out of the woodwork in this blogging system. It's simply amazing to see what you are all up to, I suck at keeping in touch and this is awesome! So keep it up my friends!

** you can return to your normal voice, if you speak normally with a heavy lisp please dont hold any hard feelings just know I truly love you **

Miss PJS inspired me to share the joy of the length of my hair.Can you tell I've been watching America's Top sort of seems that I'm fishing for compliments but REALLY i'm NOT. So if you comment, comment on how witty and intelligent and wonderful you think I am not how beautiful I am, cuz really comments aren't always about stating the obvious, am I right or am I right?!! *kidding people, really c'mon!*

Oh the Stereotype...

Breakfast Club is an amazing movie. So relevant to all people at any age. Not only is it a flippin' awesome movie that is highly entertaining, it contains a lot of truth. I had never really picked up on the message before or cared to really, but tonight while sitting here by myself in my Bro's house I realized just how ingenious it is. If you've never seen it, watch it, if it's been years since you last watched it, watch it again. Why do we think we know someone by merely seeing them or talking to them briefly. We don't. OR why is that "status" buts us in our place in life...ficades (SP??) really. I know I do, if you are truthful you know you do...we pigion hole people as if they were a two dementional piece of paper that istn' full of complexities or flaws. Well for fear of turning this into a tangent I will stop! the way Pam...Molly Ringwald...see the resemblance?!?!

AMY I LOVE YOU and I had missed you soo much!

I hate that so many of my closest friends don't live near me, it can make life lonely at times. well i'm gonna go read...

when our "religion" becomes repulsive

I can feel the red fluid that flows continuously underneath my skin begin to increase in volume and temperature each moment I witness this screaming woman on tv. As she protests and rebukes I feel the need to do the same to her. the premise of the show has nothing to do with religion, or faith, or whatever one chooses to follow. i'm sure you've heard of wife swap, if not it's a show where two wives swap homes for a week, this show is along those lines. This "christian" woman goes to a home of a family that practices astrology and other new age type things. By the end of the week the "Christian" woman has lost it and returns home to start yelling such things like " i rebuke satan in the name of Jesus"... all these things that is outrageous in such a setting. Yes, I do believe that we have the power to rebuke Satan and that we should not let Him have control of any part of our lives but I can't explain the words and behavior of this woman, who claimed to know and trust Jesus. Yet she completely disregarded his command to love others and, I can't even explain it but something inside me cracked and I was outraged at how she was treating this other family, how she was modeling Christ. She said several times that she "knew that seeds had been planted" and all I could think of was how God could have used her to plant seeds several times but she crushed them. I'm not trying to slander this woman really, I just get frustrated when Christians miss the big picture and throw "Christianese" one liners and things that mean ABSOLUTLY NOTHING to those who don't know Christ. I just kept thinking, Man, If I didnt' know Christ and watched this I would never want to. I know that we need to be bold in our faith, but we need to be sensitive too if that makes sense.ANYWAYS *TANGENT* Sorry if non of this made sense...I sort of just went off. I hope this woman wasn't related to any of you somehow and I've totally offended you.

PS- I saw Dora the Explorer live...heck yes I did!

Doing well...minus the frustration.

Why you ask? Why is this usually peaceful yet crazy Canadian so frustrated? well...she's frustrated in her lack of motivation. the fact that she is totally doing horrible in her two classes. her inability to shack the feeling of disapointment in the lack of adventure in her life currently. to shed the insistant emotion of restlessness. the feeling of she has so many places to go yet no where at the same time. she's just having a moment of relishing in her frustration...alas it shall pass...

but for now I must jet and do my job of "community building" bah ha
