In preparation for an evangelistic series, our church is participating in a 30 day fast. Wait, that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to eat for 30 days, that would be ridiculous. No, it is set up so that every day we go without something. That’s fine and dandy b/c honestly some of us could benefit from a forced diet fasting. I’m all for getting your mind and spirit in alignment with the holy spirit.

Well, today we are not to eat sweets. WHAT!! I survive off of candy and other sweets. You know this would be okay, but my brother baked a red velvet cake today. Are you kidding me? I have been craving for cake/cupcakes/brownies for almost a week now. How could this be? Is this my test? I pray that I will be able to last and enjoy it even more tomorrow.

God Is Love

BlogHop ’08


Robin came up with a great idea for all of us who weren’t able to attend BlogHer, even though I haven’t been blogging long enough to know it was that big of a deal. Anyway, she’s throwing a party for all of us who were left behind. I’m not a cook, so I think you would agree I shouldn’t be handing out recipes. If it’s okay with everyone, I’ll take care of the music for this occasion.

I welcome all who find themselves at “my virtual doorstep.” Let me introduce myself, I’m Kimberly from the great state of M-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-humped back-humped back-I. I love reading, sleeping, shopping, sleeping, talking on the phone, did I mention sleeping? Teaching is my passion and children are the reason I smile. If you wanna know more about me, check out the about me and/or my 100 things.

Why Can’t I Stay Focused?

It is Friday evening and I am blogging. One may say, “that’s cool, nothing’s wrong with that” but believe me oh yes it is. Especially when you’re the one in charge of the youth at your church and you’re the one who is supposed to have a SS lesson designed to engage them and teach them about Jesus.

I do have a few thoughts on some subjects I want to present, but I am so not interested right now. My focus is on everything but teaching tomorrow morning. You see, I woud even rather be writing about not having the lesson prepared than actually preparing the lesson. Weird, huh?

Okay, give me an hour and I’ll get a lesson together, until then just let me be unfocused.

Last night NuNu and I were talking on the phone to Keisha. Keisha was asking NuNu random questions and she was answering and Keisha and I were amazed and laughing at her responses. So, Keisha asks NuNu will she sing a song for her. NuNu says yes, but doesn’t say anything. Instead she starts fiddling with a water bottle that is sitting on the bed. She knocks the bottle over and the water rushes leaks out onto the bed. I completely lose it and starts scolding her. She looks at me, and I tell her to get out of my room. She doesn’t move or say anything. I sit the bottle upright and NuNu begins singing, “Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.” I am taken aback and immediately feel horrible for screaming and losing it over some water spilled. I apologize and she leaves as if nothing had happened.

Not only did she show me that I over-reacted, but I believe that God used her to show that we all mess up, but Jesus still loves us.

No Weapon

Sabbath Scripture

Isaiah 54: 17

   No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
