HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!

How lovely is your Temple. O Lord of the armies of heaven.

I long yes faint with longing to be able to enter your courtyard and come near to the Living God.

Even the sparrows and swallows are welcome to come and nest among your altars and there have their young, O Lord of heaven’s armies, my KIng and my God!

How happy are those who can live in you Temple, singing your praises.

Happy are those who are strong in the Lord, who want above all else to follow your steps.

When they walk through the Valley of Weeping it will become a place of springs where pools of blessing and refreshment collect after rains!

They will grow constantly in strength and each of them is invited to meet with the Lord in Zion.

O Jehovah, God of the heavenly armies, hear my prayer! Listen, God of Israel.

O God, our Defender and our Shield, have mercy on the one you have anointed as your king.

A single day spent in your Temple is better than a thousand anywhere else!  would rather be a doorman of the Temple of my God than live in palaces of wickedness.

For Jehovah God is our light and our Protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will he withhold from those who walk along his paths.

O Lord of the armies of heaven, blessed are those who trust in you.

DISCLAIMER: READ MY TITLE! Now…continue if you wanna….

My day was perfectly productive.

Let’s say that it’s Part 1 of Perfectly Productive.

Part 2 will be tomorrow.

Today consisted of applying for a job online that took 1 hour. A timed application with an assessment test. I wasn’t expecting that part, but since I had already completed 5 out of the 9 part online application I decided I’d pause the Real Housewives marathon (YES I LOVE THOSE SHOWS….but not Orange County) and finish it.

I’m rooting for several jobs. The long @$$ test one and the private school music teacher one. I’ll keep you updated on what I hear.

Anywho, the day continued with me running some errands and then filling out 3 different paper applications. 2 for Grad school and 1 for the music teacher job.

Perfectly Productive Part 2 is tomorrow when I get to mail and fax things with hope in my heart that I’ll hear something great in return.

Did I mention I have a Grad School interview on Friday? Be in prayer for me about that. I’m trying to adopt my friends’ ideals on the whole interview process to be my own.

Example: My White (Settlement….haha) friend, Allie stated, “I love interviews. You’d like for me to talk about myself for an hour or two!? Yes!” Not surprising to hear from her when you’ve seen your earlier talk shows. 😉

**********************************************************************************************************

I watched “You’ve Got Mail” for about the 3rd time in 2 and a half weeks (maybe in shorter time than that). Sadly twice was in 1 day. I was home in my room watching it. Then my dad came home and there was an encore presentation. So I made him watch it with me. I’m pretty sure he loved it as much as I did. At the end he said, “Oh! It’s him. She knew about his dog Brinkley already, right?” Hahaha, Pop makes me smile. I’m proud to say he was more consumed in Pride and Prejudice when we watched that a couple of times over Christmas break!

Anywho, I just keep falling more and more in love with the script of that movie. The amazing knowledge that the audience knows while the main characters are still lost in the dark, the joy that is on their faces when they hear 3 words, “You’ve Got Mail,” how they poor out their thoughts individually to each other. Sometimes the messages just seem like their own personal blogs to that one special reader.

” Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.” -Kathleen Kelly (aka Meg Ryan)

Ok. So Lord knows (as does my forgiving readers) that I haven’t posted on here in….

It’s not that I haven’t thought about blogging or the fact that I don’t have anything to blog about. It’s just that I have too many thoughts. Lots on my mind, ladies and gentlemen…LOTS!

Life after college has been quite interesting. Job applications, lots of questioning oneself, and testing of patience and true contentment.

Today, I had a lunch date with one of my favorite people. My Pop (yes, I call him Pop), the good ole D-A-D. Our conversation was good. Talking about “what’s to come” and having joy in uncertainty. Anyone who knows me well is that uncertainty is not okay with me. I find no joy in it. In some situations, yes. Uncertainty can be quite amazing such as surprises. I find much joy in the uncertainty of what someone has for me.  😉

Anywho, one thing that Pop said not only cracked me up but stuck with me…and will most likely stick with me forever. I can’t wait to give my children this load of crap. (LITERALLY/Figuratively)

Pop said, “Sometimes even though we aren’t given what we want or think we need, we have to have faith that God will get us where He needs us to be or rather to an amazing place that we didn’t really see would be exactly what we wanted and what others needed from us. You could go after some job that isn’t available and have to end/land in some CRAP, but next thing you know you’ll stand up proudly with bags of FERTILIZER that people are begging for!!”

LOL! Can we say best metaphor ever!  Honestly, I think that will always make me excited and/or joyous for when I’m in CRAPpy situations because I know the fertilizer that comes out of it will not only make me grow but could possibly help others grow as well.

Love, Peace, and Fertilizer!
