I love it when im feeling blue and then God sends me someone or people to give some encouragement! Everyone needs it right? When you are having a bad day isnt it nice when someone is extra friendly? or when your having a bad morning and your favorite worship song comes on sirus :)

This week has been long. I've had the flu and some other health problems. Being sick always causes problems at work. You miss out on times with your friends also, This week was the most stressful for my best friend and I felt bad cause I couldn't be there for her! Oh well everything worked out wonderful!

Willy Wonka- I love kids. I love musicals! I love chocolate! Willy wonka at the Jr. High was wonderful! A handful of my D-now girls were in it plus Miss Estrada ( director) is my best friend so I went thursday and friday night and it was so cute!

Its one of those times that if you read this and see me in Wal-Mart stop and say hi! I could use a friendly face !

Honk and Wave!

Have you been driving down the road and you see someone you know riding their bike, or running, or pushing their kids in a stroller?
I did this week. ALOT
I realized yesterday in Sunday School that I had honked and waved at the majority of my sunday school class! I though that it was funny and a tad be creepy of my self and then I realized that maybe God allowed me to cross path with them. Maybe I should have stopped and prayed for them or maybe they were praying for me, Maybe everyone just needed a friendly face. I've always been a crazy honk and wavier! I wave at everyone!
NOW I think I'll honk wave and then Pray!

Single awareness day and choir!

When I worship I slip into the moment. I get lost in the music. I love it. I joined the Choir this morning and at first was scared/worried. I just felt like I didn't fit in, like the lady sitting next to me was going to pop me over the head with our music for clapping. I know I shouldn't feel like that but maybe its how I grew up being afraid to move or sway to the music because no one else did.
About half way through Mighty to save I lost it.. I forgot where I was... I forgot that people were watching.... I was just worshiping My Jesus and it was great. no one hit me. no one gave me a dirtyl look no one even noticed. it was great!

with that being said i will be in odd ball in the choir loft for weeks to come :)

Valintines day! Ug!
I had a wonderful time with Corie and Michael though, it was nice to see old friends and catch up!

I try to be so tough!

I had a tough night! I love it when God tests me because it makes me stronger but there is sometimes pain involved but when I woke up this morning and turned on my radio this song was on! and lifted my spirits.

Savior please- Josh Wilson

Savior, please take my hand
I work so hard, I live so fast
This life begins, and then it ends
And I do the best that I can, but I don't know how long I'll last

I try to be so tough
But I'm just not strong enough
I can't do this alone, God I need You to hold on to me
I try to be good enough
But I'm nothing without Your love
Savior, please keep saving me

Savior, please help me stand
I fall so hard, I fade so fast
Will You begin right where I end
And be the God of all I am because You're all that I have

I try to be so tough
But I'm just not strong enough
I can't do this alone, God I need You to hold on to me
I try to be good enough
But I'm nothing without Your love
Savior, please keep saving me

Everything You are to me
Is everything I'll ever need
And I am learning to believe
That I don't have to prove a thing
'Cause You're the one who's saving me

I'm worth dying for? yeah right

"The Heart has tremendous capacity to love, and to ache. And this ache is universal."- Rob Bell

This is from a book I'm reading called "Sex God, exploring the endless connection between spirituality and sexuality". I know what your thinking but I suggest everyone read it. young and old.

Our tendency in the midst of suffering is to turn on God. To get angry and bitter and shake our fist at the sky and say, "God, you don't know what it's like! You don't understand! You have know idea what i'm going through. You don't have a clue how much this hurts"

The Cross is God taking on the flesh and blood and saying, "me too."

This was a huge realization for me. God does know how I' feel. I'm not doing this alone and the rest of the world prolly knows exactly how I feel to. Everyone has had their share of heart ache and.............

I've learned that you cant put a time frame on how fast or slow your heart heals and loves.
You can't say poof im over it. or poof I'm in love with him, or her.

This book also talks about "women worth dying for". Woah right? I'm sitting here going I don't want someone to throw them selves in front of a bus for me. Am I really worth that. Surly God didn't really mean that. I'm pretty sure he did, in not so many words.

so girlys
here is what the book says

You are worth dying for.

Your worth does not come from your body, your mind, your work, what you porduce, what you put out, how much money you make. Your worth does not come from wether or not you have a man. Your worth does not come from wether or not men notice you. You have inestimable worth that comes from your creator.

You will continue to be tempted in a thousand different ways not to believe this. The temption will be to go searching for your worth and validity from places other than your creator.
You are worth dying for!

I am learning and growing so much. Doesn't mean its not hard, or free of pain. I'm slowly learning that God didn't say "follow me and it will be fun and easy and pain free" But I know that it is so worth it.
My creator loves me for me and I'm going to be a light for him.


I love the Grammys! I loved to watch people do unexpected duets with each other so here are my opinions on a few of them.

Taylor Swift and Miley- Ok taylor you are an amazing artist and song writer couldn't you have picked someone a little more on your level than Miley?

Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, T.I., and Kanye West and M. I. A- not a fan of rap but I loved the performance.

Jonas Bro's and Stevie- I can only imagine what a thrill it was for them to be on stage with such a ledgend!

Neyo, jamie fox and the the four tops- Wow. pretty sure ne-yo was one of those people who are like wow I was born in the wrong time period... he just has class!

Adele and sugarland- brought me to tears. I love sad love songs.... espically right now.
John Mayers's voice makes my heart melt. im so excited for allison kraus and jennifer hudson. Her performance had me crying and wishing I had Soul like that!

I just love music!

Whats your idea of Him?

I'm reading two books at the moment. Both talk about your view of God and WHO HE IS!

I wanted to share a part of "Crazy Love"
" have you ever thought about how diverse and creative God is? He didn't have to make hundreds of different kinds of bananas, but He did. He didn't have to put 3000 species of trees within one squre mile in the Amazon Jungle but He did. God didn't have to creat so many kinds of laughter. Think about all the different sounds of your friends laughs- wheezes, snorts, silent, loud, obnoxious!"

I'm one of those people that when trying to tell someone God exists, I automatically start with nature... I've never really thought about laughter. I love to laugh.. personally I have about 5, all of which are annoying and loud but they are mine and my friends love them...
God always shows me little things that make him real but I wonder what he shows other people.
How does God show himself to you?

I went to a funeral yesterday. I hate funerals but I learned a few things at this one. They were married for 50+ years and he could count on one hand how many times he'd been away from his wife. I want a love like that. Being from a broken home my biggest fear is Divorce but to see love like that just gives me great hope that I will find the one God has for me, in his own time...

" The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation"- 2 Samuel 22:2-3

I'm one of those people, God?

Here is some back ground-----
I have these 2 friends who have always seemed to have it SO together Spiritually. They make being a Christian look easy (not that its hard all the time) but they seem like "of course I read my bible 20 mins a day or more when I have time or get free time" One is just so bubbly, and the other spend her summer in the middle east sharing the Word..

I'm reading this book and doing a study in Sunday School called 'God as he longs for you to see Him" and it talks about perception of people and how sometimes your off just a tad bit.

I thought back to last week when I have having lunch with a friend and we were discussing dating and boys and I said that's like these two people dating way out of his league.I was saying how I will never be good enough to date someone like that... he goes better with one of the other 2 friends. hes just way out of my league..... Corie looked at me dumbfounded and was like " SARAH WE ARE IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS THEM WE JUST TALK ABOUT IT MORE"

woah... Corie was so right. we (mostly me) spent all of our time thinking that we didn't live up to their standards that we would never be on the same level as them....only to realize that our perception was oh so wrong....

While reading and talking last night I was like Why is my perception of ME so wrong? God thinks I'm good enough. so why can't I?

Am I really one of those people God? He answered "yes all of my children are "One of Those people" Sarah your perception is off just a tad bit"
