Howdy Yall!

Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays!
I can not believe that it is Christmas time already!
I am beyond myself with excitement. WHOOP!
First off, I can not believe how much my lifestyle has changed in the last month.
About a month ago I broke my computer charger and I thought it was going to be the death of me.
Not having my computer close by was such a scary thought. Not being able to check my facebook every hour(or 5 minutes-shhhh) was even scarier. For reals, I have been thrown into that group of young 20 somethings who is way to technologically dependent.
So, the charger broke and it was going to cost $80 bucks to replace. This little girl does not have an envelope labeled, "Emergency Computer Repairs", and so I had to deal, and still am.
I realize now how crazy I had become. I would come home every day from school and check my facebook and then check it again an hour later before I went to work just to see what so and so was doing, or if so and so had put new pictures up or something. Then I would come back another 4 hours later and check again, spending at least an hour on the computer for no reason.
What the heck?!?
The first 2 days seemed impossible. What was I going to do with my time?
What was I going to do at home?
Spend time with family?
Spend time with Jesus?
Spend more time at work?
All of these things seemed so foreign.
I prayed that the Lord would hand me $80.00 to spend on the charger, and He did.
Then I went to the doctor, and had to get glasses. There goes that $80.00.
After a full month of not having my computer, its kind of nice.
I kind of am enjoying not knowing whats going on with every one around me. I still would love to have $1,000.00 purchase back, but God has totally shown me who I had become. I was becoming someone I hated. The "L" word was fastly approaching me, haunting me.
Then, there it was. I came home from school on a Tuesday afternoon and didn't have work scheduled, had nothing to watch, nothing to do really, so I slept. I took a 4 hour nap on a Tuesday afternoon and woke up to a terrible thought, I was.....I was....LAZY!
What the poo? GET UP!
"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, but you were bought with a price, therefore honor God with your body."
Slap your face, WOW!
I hate conviction sometimes, well all the time almost. But, now I see it and am amazed at how it has taken this long for me to listen. I have had the knowledge, the wisdom and the direction for at least 3 years now, and now I decide to listen. Awesome!
I guess the saying is true, "better late then never".
Thank you Jesus.
Thank you for loving me despite my disobedience.
Praise the Lord for grace. WOW! Seriously, Praise God for grace.
His love is abundant.

Well, with all that said, Vaya con Dios. Go with God.
Much love to you brothers and sisters.
Enjoy this season with your family and friends.
Thank you Jesus for my incredible family and awesome friends!


A fabulous Life
