quiet time at 6 in the morning, while watching the sunrise at my favorite location in Norco, makes me happy. Also, it seems to always make my day THAT much better...too bad I did not do this yesterday.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, HE is rarely early, but ALWAYS on time.
God knows me so well, knows exactly what I need and when I need it. Yesterday (Monday) was not such a great day for me. I woke up at Kolin's house in such an empty feeling, all I wanted to do was go back to sleep. I found myself sitting in their family room with the TV on in the background dazing off, literally thinking about nothing. I knew I needed to be alone. My sweet boy walked me back to the guest room, where I took a few hour nap just to regather I suppose. When I re-woke I still felt in a funk.
It was five in the afternoon by the time I got on the road to head home and it wasn't until then that I realized I wasted more than half the day, either sleeping or feeling lost. I needed my love, my God to help me out.
At the base of the mountain I pulled over for a few short minutes just to pray. I prayed about everything.
You know how sometimes unanswered prayers are the best kind of prayers and other times answered prayers are? Well this time my prayer was answered, God seriously consumed me on the rest of the ride home. For the next 45 minutes it was as if my best friend was in the car with me and I was just spilling everything, every detail about the past few months, how certain things have affected me, my relationship, my walk with Him, my feelings for Kolin, my friendships, my family, you name it and I covered the topic.
Basically, I am blogging about how important alone time with God is to me.

So two weeks ago, Heidi, Kaylee and myself were at dland the day after the boys left for choir tour, sadly we already missed them and came up with the idea of surprising them on one of their last shows in Phoenix AZ. It was SO hard to keep a secret from Kolin SHEESH, never again, well maybe ;)

One week from today I get to see Kolin home from tour.

I am so unbelievably blessed.
I love God more than anything in my life.
Colossians 2:6-8So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
Also, I had a lovely time up in Big Bear with the family. Basically, my mom is amazing and she's a trooper for being sick through mother's day weekend among many other reasons, she's just awesome. I love you mama.
Some aspects of being a visual person I can deal with and others not so much. I stay clear of Barney's and try to do most of my shopping at Goodwill because of designers like Phillip Lim. The perfection enters my dreams and absorbs my life. Is this normal?
