The Proposal!

July 27, 2009 at 4:22 pm (Everyday)

I officially got proposed to this weekend!!  And it was awesome!  This weekend at the South Oklahoma City campus we held a garage sale to raise money to build wells in Africa to provide clean drinking water.  People from the church donated anything and everything.  It was crazy!  We went Friday night to help set up for it and were to be back at the church Saturday morning at 6:30.  We got there and got into a huddle to talk about how the garage sale would work and to divide up into groups.  After we divided up, our pastor, Trevor, called everyone back together to pray before we kicked everything off.  Trevor said, “David” and I thought he was going to ask David to pray.  Then he said, “Do you have something you want to say?”  David said he would like to thank everyone for being there with us that day and I immediately began shaking.  I was so nervous!  He then reached in his pocket, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him.  It took EVERYTHING I had to keep my composure.  Of course I said yes! It was so cool because alot of our friends got to be there.   Here are a few pictures:

At the Movies Week 1- The Bucket List

July 13, 2009 at 7:11 pm (Inspiration)

This weekend we kicked off our biggest series of the year at church called At the Movies.  This week’s movie was The Bucket List. 

Here is a quick synopsis of the movie:  Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star as two terminally ill cancer patients who decide to break out of the hospital and live their last days to the fullest.  Edward Cole (Nicholson) is a corporate billionaire who is currently sharing a hospital room with blue-collar mechanic Carter Chambers (Freeman). Though initially the pair seems to have nothing in common, conversation gradually reveals that both men have a long list of goals they wish to accomplish before they kick the bucket, and an unrealized desire to discover what kind of men they really are. But one can’t accomplish such lofty objectives from the confines of a hospital bed, so now, in order to live their lives to the absolute fullest, Edward and Carter will have to make a break for it. With a checklist that includes playing the poker tables in Monte Carlo, consuming copious amounts of caviar, racing the fastest machines on four wheels, and much more, these two terminally ill men will do their best to fit a lifetime of experience into their last remaining days while forging an unlikely, but truly remarkable, friendship. – Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide.

There were several scriptures that were used to go along with this message.  My favorite was Psalm 39:4-5 “LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered, and that my life is fleeing away.  My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just a moment to you; human existence is but a breath.” 

How true is that verse!  Life is so stinkin’ short…and what am I doing about it.  Am I using this short time on earth to live life to its fullest?  Am I using this short time on earth to further His kindgom?  I sat down this weekend and made my own ‘bucket list’. 

  1. Go sailing. 
  2. Go deep sea fishing.
  3. See the Grand Canyon.
  4. Go on a mission trip to Africa.
  5. Go on a mission trip to Central America.
  6. Become debt free so I can give freely- so I can serve to my fullest capacity.

What about you?  What would be on your ‘bucket list’?

Quick Poll: Toilet Seats

July 13, 2009 at 2:57 pm (Everyday)

Just doing a quick poll: does it matter if the toilet seat is left up or put down? Which do you prefer?

My answer- I cannot stand when the toilet seat is left up.  It’s like leaving cabinet doors open.  It just looks so much neater when the seat is down (and cabinets are closed).
