Apartment Hunting...What a Drag!

As most of you know, I'm moving to Louisville, KY, in May! I CAN'T WAIT!!! My friend Lauren Hodson (to the left) and I are going to be living together!

Now I say to together...meaning in a building....and apartment to be more precise. Well, there's the problem. APARTMENT HUNTING STINKS!!! Especially when you're 8 hours away.

Lauren and I visited the area last week and looked for apartments for HOURS AND DAYS ON END. And we found? Nothing.

Yes that's right, nothing. UG! We would find an apartment in our price range, but then it wasn't exactly what we were hoping for. Then we would look another place and Lauren would love it, but not me. Then I would like one a lot, but not her. Then we found the greatest place, but it's about 3o minutes away from everything. Oh my goodness!

Well, I guess we'll just have to keep truckin' and keep lookin' online for places. If you would, please pray we find a great place, in a good part of town, in our price range very soon! I know God has it all worked out!!

Happy Easter!

Because of that Friday,
Upon the cross,
Sinners like me have not a loss.
That you would die for someone like me,
paying the price for my treachery. 
For it was I, standing in the crowd, 
yelling "Crucify, Crucify!" so very loud.
I was the hand that held the whip,
the rope with the heavy, pointed led tip.
I was the soldier, beating you down.
Out of thorns I was making your crown.
I was the hand that held the nail,
the pain that I caused, only you can tell.
I was the person that killed my king.
My sin caused Him all His suffering.
But despite my wrong, evil ways,
all I had to do was pray.
Then you forgave me for all the pain,
it felt like I had come in from the rain;
into your gentle and loving arms.
Safe and happy and away from all harm.
Now my eternity is forever with You,
the Man that I beat, still so kind and true.

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered! I'm His!"

MY FIRST BLOG! I've debated and debated on whether or not to get a blog for a while now. I mean I do love reading my cousin's blog and her friends, so I finally gave in!

So here I was, searching for a blog title for HOURS! And I do mean hours. I started this whole process while at work today around's now 11:30 pm. Pathetic. But I got it!!


What made me pick it? Psalm 56:13. Simple as that!

Psalm 56:13 says, "For you have DELIVERED my soul from death, indeed my feet from stumbling, so that I may walk before God in the light of the living."

I'm 100% "signed" with Christ's name written on my heart, "sealed" by His blood, and "delivered" from death! How amazing it is that I can be freed from the sin in my life. I thank God everyday for my salvation, cherish Him in my heart knowing full well that's where He resides, and I can't wait for the day "I may walk before God!"
