I know, i know, it's been a while since i updated my blog! well, i am now, be proud! lol Time is just flying by, graduation is in less than 2 months, my cousins wedding and my other cousin's military graduation are in t-minus 1 month and counting taking the place of prom! i cant wait!!! I haven't seen my cousins or family in like a couple years, mainly because they live all the way across the u.s., in Oregon. I miss them so much!
God has been stirring! Can you feel it? I can. HE is stirring some big things in my heart but not only there but in my youth group, THE REALM, and in our church and in our city! God is so amazing, so BIG and powerful! i am CRAVING him more and more everyday! my soul dances and jumps when i hear His name! Lord, I ask that you send me out to be your hands and feet in our city! Help me to be more compassionate towards others! Upon hearing the messages at THE REALM, I feel myself sharing more about him and praying more to him throughout the day! I love HIM! like Matt said, I'm tired of just talking about Him, it's time to do something about it! It's time to get up and dance, cause we're free now, it's time to lift up our praise, and shout it out now!
Did I mention that I'm doing a boot camp? i don't think i did! Well i am, I'm trying to tone up and get in shape. If you read my past blogs, one of my goals is to run a marathon, not walk but run! As well as run a marathon, i want to join the Air Force, and if I'm going to be going to boot camp there, and should get a head start in working out. But at first, i was doing it for the wrong reasons, i have always felt like because I'm on the chunkier side, i don't have a boyfriend, that was always my excuse! So i joined boot camp hoping to shed those dreadful, unwanted pounds and did! But after that first boot camp, i felt so much better about myself! It feels so good to wake up early and work out hard every morning! I encourage everyone reading my blog to do a boot camp! =]
OK! Let's get down to the nitty gritty! As i was reading over my goals the other day, i realized that somethings were spelled wrong and some things didn't make since! So i am REVISING, as well as giving an update on them! Hope you like them!

Anyways, so life has been kinda hectic, work, workouts, prom drama, school and more work! Im just living life, loving it! God, is really showing me the way. Before i did newthru30, when people talked about stories in the bible, i had no clue what they were talking about but now i do. i finally realize how good and mighty MY KING is! I love HIM! HE is such an AWESOME GOD!
