I even went to the store last night and bought healthy food and snacks. I packed a healthy lunch and even had oatmeal and a banana for breakfast. Im drinking water instead of coke and sweet tea (which no tea is the hardest part). Anyways I felt really good about this until around 11:00 this morning. Little did I remember, I purchased $30.00 worth of Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and brownies. I mean its not like everyday you can have Otis Spunkmeyer cookies.....actually I have not had any since 2002. hahah...sad I remember. These are my favorite. A lady at my work was selling these items for her daughters school....so I gave in. I totally forgot about this order until today. So now I am stuck with an entire pan of double chocolate chip brownies and an entire tub of chocolate chip cookies. What will I do! This is only a test....Im being tested to see if I give in to these treats I have decided to give up...I can do this!!!! :)

So this picture was taken last year. My WONDERFUL boyfriend manages to always get great concert tickets. Usually we are somewhere between the 1 and 5th row of every concert we go to. Not all but most. How he does this Im not sure but he pulls through for me! :) This picture is of me and Joe Don from Rascall Flatts. We had great seats at this concert but on the way there one of Aarons friends called and said "Hey hurry and get here and I can get you backstage" So needless to say we skipped our dinner reservations and flew downtown so we could hangout backstage before the concert!!! This was when Kelly pickler was on tour with them. I must say with out a doubt The guys from Rascall Flatts were awesome. So friendly!!! We had a great time. Thanks to Chris and his friendship with their Manager, my night was great!
On another note Rascally Flatts will be coming to my city soon so Aaron needs to get on my tickets ;) I HAVE to see the guys again and Jessica Simpson!

I have a dear friend that has been saved recently and I LOVE seeing and hearing the wonders that the Lord is doing in her life and heart. Recently my friend has been visiting the church I attend and has really found this to be a welcoming Church home. I LOVE Sundays and nothing warms my heart more then looking down the row and realizing my family and all my best friends...yes all my close girlfriends...are sitting with me praising and worshiping the Lord. Just this morning my dear friend brought an issue to my attention. I was discussing how I want to do more in our community. Help the elderly, abused and addicted. She agreed that she would love to help--so I'm excited to see where this leads us. BUT she also confided in me with a pain that is breaking her heart. Her brother whose name is ERIC! (she gave me permission to say his name). Eric is a very nice young man...cute, sweet and caring. The most important part of Eric is missing though. Eric is LOST. He is broken and wounded. Eric is 30 and has fought a life of addiction. He has had two overdoses, with one leaving him on his death bed. Eric survived both of these..........some ask WHY? I can tell you why.....God's work with Eric is not finished. What that job is, I do not know but I feel in my heart that it will be wonderful. Eric is not the same addict he was when he overdosed but he is still lost from the most important thing in life. GOD!!
Eric does not know his Lord and Savior. Highpoint (my Church) is a place for IMPERFECT PEOPLE and I know that this family would welcome Eric no matter what his struggles and imperfections may be. At this time Eric has no interest in Church or learing about the Lord and his Savior. So MY PRAYER REQUEST is that Eric would see the wonders of the Lord through his friends and family....that this may open his eyes. I would love for Eric to come to Church and just hear God's word.......see God's work......and feel the love of God's people at work all around him. I pray that I may touch Eric's life or give him word's of advice that will open his eyes. I pray that his heart and mind will open up so that he can learn and accept his Lord and Savior. My brothers and sisters....we have a lost, broken, and wounded brother in need of love and prayer.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read this post. This post means more to me than any of the other posts I have written....I welcome words of wisdom and encouragement. Most of all THANK YOU!!!!
