and yes, since you are asking, I had a great time. And my husband is turning THIRTY SEVEN later this week which is amazing to me since he was nineteen when we met. I wondered then if he was too old for me. hahaha.
So, I have this random mass of blogging points for today.
First, if you have not yet watched I am Legend...please do yourself a favor and skip it. Why? It is a horrible movie. Don't get me wrong... it was well made, it was well acted, and it did what it set out to do... mostly. But at some point in the movie I realized I was not being entertained at all, I was being assaulted. It was overly sad and scary and hopeless. If you have a tender heart like me, you will be tortured. I'm just saving you. Don't come crying to me if you see it and your heart is broken. And in the interest of behaving like a happily married Christian woman, I will not mention that the only redeeming quality in the movie was Will Smith's abs. I won't do it. Besides, I don't want you to find out what a horrid person I actually am.
Speaking of me being horrid, I feel like I misrepresented myself Wednesday. You should probably know that although I did do that really cool organizational thing with my shoes, I am actually a slob. I can't let people in my house without notice because I am a filthy pig. SO. don't be that impressed. It made my blog because it was an anomaly, not a normal behavior. There. You know the truth. I feel better now.
Next, I would like to welcome my dear sweet friend Kim to the blogging world. This is one tough chica who has endured and triumphed in Christ more in the last few years than I hope to in a lifetime. Miss Kim is a widow and mother of two young children. More importantly, she is funny, a HOTTIE, a major conservative, a wonderful Christian and a true blue friend. You can go visit her here. Tell her I said howdy! Also tell her she owes me 5 bucks for the endorsement. kidding.
I had all these really rich spiritual things I wanted to share with you today, but this dumb migraine that is trying to surface is kicking my booty, so for now, I'll leave you with this:
Today for the first time, I actually imagined hearing the Trumpet Call, and hurrying my family together, realizing this was really actually going to happen, and I was really going to go be with Jesus at last. I could feel it as though it was happening. My heart was beating so fast, and I was so happy. I realize that's not exactly how it's going to be... the twinkling of an eye is probably too fast for me to get the kids together and grab my camera, and who knows if it will happen in my lifetime...
but, you guys,
Jesus is really going to come back.
one way or another, if we are His,
we are really going to be with Him someday!
it's is not just a fairy tale.
really really real.
do you feel it?
are you ready?
According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
