Rather ironic, isn’t it?

I’m finding the following scenario vastly amusing (in a twisted sort of way).

Battering ex-husband calls ex-wife trying to track down a place for his battered niece to live because she’s leaving her battering husband. 

Rather ironic, isn’t it?

Gotta love my 16 year old

k so I’m not gone crazy which is probably what you were thinking from the subject line but the truth is I plan on getting lots of tattoos when the time comes. The other truth is that I would like to have my mothers opinion on them before I get em. When I say opinion I don’t mean how dumb and stupid it is I mean I don’t want to put anything permanently on my body my mother is gonna HATE with a passion for the rest of my life, with that being said I’m almost 100% your not gonna like either, but with a realistic mind in knowing ima get one or the other, which would you prefer. People I ask seem to be split, in leaning more towards the lighter one just because I like it a little more and if the artist messes up a little the dark black in the other one would be nearly impossible to cover. Think about it and let me know,

Scrapbook of sin

I believe we each have our own pathway to healing after salvation.  Perhaps I’ve become cynical over the years, but I struggle with laughter whenever I hear someone spout off that “Jesus is the answer” in that cookie-cutter way of speaking.  As if surrendering your life to Him will instantly not only wash away all your sins but heal all your wounds, remove all the scars, tear down all the walls and erase all the memories.  Don’t I wish!!!  

Don’t get me wrong, it will be miraculous the way God moves in your life once you’ve surrendered yourself to Him, but don’t be discouraged when life isn’t a bed of roses.
 
I can remember one time kneeling at an altar, I had been battling the same thing over and over and over again and I just couldn’t find victory.  As I knelt there, it’s as though God opened the scrapbook of my life and began flipping the pages, page after page of immorality, page after page of pain, page after page of unforgettable memories, page after page of filth.  I remember so clearly crying out to Him in all my brokeness and asking “why did You make me this way?” and I’ll never forget hearing that still small voice responding so sadly yet so lovingly “I didn’t make you this way, SIN DID!” 
 
I realized at that moment that all that I am is a result of sin.  My pain, my scars, my battles, my wounds, my bleeding is all a direct result of sin. 
 
Sin.

CT Scan

Is it odd to admit that I almost fell asleep while having a CT Scan done today? 

The technican didn’t freak out halfway through the procedure so I’m taking that as a good sign.  If there’s a problem I should hear from the doctor tomorrow afternoon.

I’m really not “worried” but I’ll admit that my mind is swarming with the recollection that UncleAndy’s battle with brain cancer all began with really bad headaches that grew progressively worse.

First day without a headache

For the first time in weeks I went an entire day without a pounding headache. Had a slight throbbing at one point but nothing worth notating.

Pumpkin Rolls for HMA

I made four pumpkin rolls and sold them in order to make a $35.00 donation to Holiness Missions of America. Last year I made several for friends who offered to pay me for them so this year I took them up on their offer and charged $10.00 each planning on donating the net proceeds to HMA. $25.00 + a $10.00 … I’m a happy camper.
