My song for the year

Image
I am aaah-maaay-zed at how God is clearly showing me what He wants me to learn this year.  As I was listening to Pandora last week the Collingsworth family came on, and they were singing "I Found it All" .... as I listened to the words of this song, I just started crying!  I couldn't believe the fact that this song relates to me 100%.
I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do and I pray that it speaks to you as much as it speaks to me!
I Found it All by the Collingsworth family

As I was explaining purity to my friend Kathleen (age 10 at the time), her little sister Emilee (age six at the time) was absolutely absorbing all that I had to say. Kathleen however, wasn’t quite understanding what I was saying, so I decided to use an analogy. “Okay Kathleen, let’s pretend that your dad is the king & he gives you a bag full of your favorite candy…” I was suddenly interrupted by Emilee, “Can the candy be M&M’s?” “I suppose the candy can be M&M’s.” As I went on, Kathleen understood everything I had to say and kept asking me awesome questions. Emilee however, never let go of the candy analogy! So every time I mentioned the topic of purity, Emilee reminded Kathleen: “Remember Kathleen, you can NOT give a boy ANY of your M&am…

My goals for 2015

Yeah, yeah, yeah .... I know that this post is waaaaay over due, but eh, at least I'm getting this years goals out here on the blog.

reason behind it : maybe... just maybe .... since I'm telling you what my goals are, that'll be enough accountability right there, and I'll actually get them marked off ... one.by.one!  Maaaaaaybeeeee ;) =P
Sooo here they are .....
>> Faith life <<
:: Study the books of Genesis + Johsua    - I would like to list all the godly women and find all the verses "describing" why they're considered godly.
:: Read the story of Aquila + Priscilla in the Bible   - I think it would be too neat if afterwards, I *attempt* to write a play about their story.
:: Do a Bible study for the young ladies at church   - I still have doin' a young ladies Bible study on my heart.  I started one at a previous church + it was soo enjoyable.  The one that was goin' to be started at the library didn't work out cuz of school, lack …

Moriah is doing a "Valentine Card Challenge"

My friend Moriah is doing the most incredible challenge ..... she's hosting a Valentine Card Challenge.

Here's what she says:

There are around 200 children in each facility and around 7 known facilities exist in Uganda.  

That means we need 1400 cards for each child to receive one.  1400 cards by February 14th.

{1} Make a simple card(s) with John 3:16 written out, and "God loves you" or in Lugandan you could put "Jesu Okwagala" & sign your name.

>>Please have your brothers & sisters make one, your friends, parents, family, people at your church.  Anyone can help participate to meet our goal.

{2} Write "Valentine Card Challenge" on the back of the envelope & send it in to SixtyFeet:
