Hello Everyone!! this morning has been a VERY productive morning for me. I paid off the last bit of my credit card, never to worry about it again!! This is huge!! I never had a ton of debt, but when you don't work, even the minimun payment feels like a maximum. But no more worries! Thanks Lord!! He takes care everyone. He certainly does.
Have you ever thought about what Jesus meant when he said "I come to give you life abundant."? I dont think, in fact I'm pretty 100% certain that Jesus didn't die for us to make sure that Christians are wealthy and that they all have the cars and homes of their dreams. Because... I would say that earnestly following the Lord, I am living life in full. I'm totally living a wonderfully abundant life... my marriage is super happy (blessings), I have the GREATEST, seriously GREATEST friends and family a person could ask for (more blessings), I'm going to school to learn how to effectively lead others in worship for crying out loud (even more blessings)!! I dont know, My husband (being the super amazing Spritual Leader that he is), and I have been thinking about that a lot lately. What does the Lord really mean when He says that He wants to bless us? Financial blessings are super great, I'm not negating that, but in a lot of ways I think our ideas, and His ideas I think have gotten mixed up. Okay, soap box moment over. What do you think?
OKAY! ANYWAYS!!! Second installment of pictures from San Diego. Oh, Em, Gee. What a great day this was! My parents took Nathan and I to this great little french cafe on University, everything inside was a beautiful as could be. Seriously, whenever I see a case full of pastries, I just die, becuase I want to sample every single one. I held back... mostly because I didn't want to obligate my dad to the check. I ordered probably the most delicious Yogurt Parfait I think I have ever had, and as you can see, I was very very very excited about. Look how beautiful it was! You'd be stoked too.
ME: DAD! you're supposed to look cool, you know, like you don't know the camera's there
MOM: (thinking to herself) This is just silly
NATHAN: (thinking to himself) I'm truly the most patient man in history.
So thats about it for me to day. I really would like to know what you think about what Jesus coming to give us "life abundant" what do you think that really means? I've already told you, so you already know what we think. ANYWAYS! I hope you enjoyed this second installment of San Diego Dreamin'. HA. See you soon!!
