why do i always let myself get disappointed when things don’t seem to go how i thought they would… ???  it makes me feel like crying…

oh, but anyway!  i found the dream dress! and i’m SOOOO excited! gorgeous.  and I’M going to feel gorgeous!  so now i have to alter it and wait about 3 months… (the hard part… waiting!)  haha.  well, the sunshine has made me happy.  OH! and i got some new jeans that i love… with a cute sweater that was on sale… and flip-flops!  i’ve been able to wear the flip-flops ‘cuz of the weather!  wow.  in the mood for a gorgeous picnic.  (i like the word gorgeous, in case you haven’t noticed.)

Jesus definitely made me smile today!  He never fails…

so i have this little yellow piece of paper stuck to my wall, above my desk by my door… and i was looking it over the other day, and read the words on it… and totally completely was like… WOW– my life!  and then Greg preached it this morning and i was even more like WOW.  so… here is MY life, and MY goal… to glorify God in all I do, for the rest of my days!

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed.  I have stepped over the line.  The decision has been made.  I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ.  I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.  My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure.  I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.  I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity.  I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.  I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.  My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, and my mission clear.  I cannot be bought, deluded, or delayed.  I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.  I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ, I am a disciple of Jesus.  I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me.  And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me–my banner will be clear!!!

This… is my commitment as a Christian.
