I am. I am a dreamer.
My personality is big! God made me an intense individual for a reason. I admit it... I am intense! There... you have it! I dream of doing and wanting great things for the future. This sometimes comes with frustration from the other person across the table talking with me. This happens to be Andrew the majority of the time. It's not just that I am a dreamer and want pink flowers and glitter to coat everything I do or want. I will tell you what I want deep in my soul. This is something that the past couple of months I have really had to evaluate. Why do I want these things? Do I want them because I do, or because God has put a deep passion and desire in my heart for these things?
- to be a mother
- for my voice to speak truth
- to be free from sin that traps me
- to make an impact on young women
- a job when I get out of school
- a job for Andrew that he is proud to have
- a place to live that is ours
- to share Jesus will all nations
- to teach my children who God is
- to live a life of purpose
- to be used by God
I honestly just really want to be used by God. I want to live larger than life. I want to walk with God hand in hand. I do not want to be anywhere that is out of his will. I desire to sing at the top of my lungs about the God who saved me from myself. This summer has been about surrender for me. Surrendering myself to the one who created me. I am now waving the white flag. God, bring the rain. Mold me into the woman that you want me to be. When I smile, I want others to see you. When I serve, I want others to see you. When I sing, I want others to see you. My heart longs for you.

Last night we had 50's Skate Night for the kids here. This was the most popular event so far. We had so much fun!! I decorated the place like a skating rink and it sure did feel like it also... My bottom is sore today from falling so many times! Last night was also monumental because we had the first rain in almost 2 months here. I love working with Children. They are so funny and very daring. Watch this video- and you will see my pastor, grandmother, and all my kids this summer have a great time dancing and skating the night away!

This past weekend the college group here at Brighton Park went to the Frio River in Concan. There were only 5 of us that went but we still had such a great time! This is a video of a Bat Cave we went to. At 8pm sharp, 12 million little blood suckers came flying out in a spiral around our heads. CREEPY! They were flying a little too close for comfort! We stayed for three days and we loved every minute of it!!! We had some good times... like when Andrew and Wayne (college minister) decided to have a marshmallow fight, or when Tammy (college ministers wife) woke me up in the middle of the night to foot steps outside our cabin window, or when we stuck marshmallows on Wayne and Tammy's old van and called it the "Marshmallow Mobile" the entire weekend... we had fun!
