A Word for Wednesday: Peace

So I was surfing around on the old Facebook and it asked me "What's on your mind?"

The truth is there is a lot on my mind. But there is one thing that has been reigning supreme. 

God is in control. I have a lot that I could be worrying about. None (I repeat, NONE) of it is in my control. All of it is in God's hands.

Do you know the amount of pressure that is taken off of our shoulders when you truly let God take control and really trust Him with your life?

I'm not going to get real preachy on you. Just know this:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6 & 7

I really like this book by Walsh and Matinusen Coloma. It was intriguing and interesting in the way that the book was written. The autho…

Our Story Part Two

When we last left our heroine she had just received a mysterious phone call...


Well I answered the phone and it was not my friend, but it was Pop Rocks. He informed me that he went to purchase a ticket and was told that I had not purchased one. So he bought both of them. I promised to pay him back and he told me not to worry about it.


I began to wonder if this was more than "just friends."


I went to spend the weekend with my Grandmother. While I was there we went to the mall. I decided to look for a dress for the Jr/Sr and so we looked. I did indeed find a dress, but my Grandmother loved to tell how I was so excited, but adament that we were just friends. She could tell that it wasn't. She was such a smart lady!


When I got back to campus I went about my usual business and was coming out of a club meeting on Tuesday when my phone rang again. This time it was Pop Rocks, with whom I had exchanged numbers after a second phone call from a friends phone. He wanted to know if I w…
