Bible Study!

So last night some of the college students at BLBC met up at wonderful couple's (Jimmy and Heather) house for the first of many bible studies! It was wonderful! I felt so blessed to have this couple take charge and get this bible study going! I was very encouraged by all that was said and discussed and am looking foward to many more! For anyone that would like to come, the next will be on a thursday in two weeks!

Working out with "Daddio"

So I've discovered a new favorite hobby: working out with my dad. This past week we've been meeting up at the local YMCA in the mornings when I get off of work, which is at 5:30 AM. I know some people are reading this and thinking: wow! not my idea of fun! But I absolutely LOVE it! Ecspecially since this has become a very treasured "Daddy-Daughter" time for us! We warm up on the treadmills, and then work out with the free weights and get to talk to the whole time while working out and getting in shape together, (or in his case simply staying in shape)! And I love the feeling that when I'm lifting bigger weights that my dad is standing right there supporting me and making sure I don't drop it or hurt myself; I love that secure feeling!

Over the years, I've come to realize how incredibly blessed I am to have such a Godly father! I love when we spend time together, and God simply stops you in your tracks and says, Hey! look over there, that's your dad and he's a pretty amazing guy! Be thankful! I'm blessed beyond measure when it comes to my family! And I'm becoming all the more thankful for the time I get to spend with them!!

But yes, I have a new fav. hobby: working out with my dad!

A Little Sunday Outing!

So this past Sunday, our family had the privilege of spending the afternoon with just the three of us, (Dad, Mom, and Me) and we decided to take a 'walk'. Our walk included walking around the field behind our house, for those of you who have been to my house you know that its pretty big! Then we went across the road to that field and went down in the holler to the back fields down there! We had a blast! But more than anything we were reminded of how great a God we serve! We are told that he knows every grain of sand on the beaches, which means he also knew every little piece of dirt that makes up the big hill we live on and every blade of grass in all those fields!!! How Massive and Mighty is our GLORIOUS GOD!!!

Fishing with Grandpa!

So yesterday I had the opportunity to go fishin with my Grandpa! I had a wonderful time!! We started out at 7 in the morning yesterday and headed to Magnolia, KY. We stopped for some fresh made doughnuts on the way down, the long cream-filled kind... gotta love those! We fished for pretty much the whole day, stopping to eat our lunches we had packed that morning and finally arrived home a little after 4 in the afternoon with a grand total of 53 fish, including a bass that I caught.

Summer 2008 Begins!!

So.. this summer has been wonderful thus far!!
On Derby, Mom went with me to pick out a kitten! I found and fell in love with the then 3 month old all black girl that I decided to call Mattie! She is absolutely adorable and she and Moziek, (my 9-year old black lab) get along great!
Mother's Day went well!! Me, mom and Dad, went down to Casey Co. as usual, but Brandon couldn't make it due to a softball game. And to be honest, I got bored rather quickly without him there to talk to, so me and mom took some pics...haha....

Then later in mid May, a bunch of people I work with went out to the Cheesecake Factory, and me and Tracey got super dressed up for this event. We went out and bought new cute summer dresses and got our make-up done at Dillards! We also got our ears pierced, Tracey got the second piercings in her lobes redone, and I got my cartilage pierced (that's when you get the top part of your ear pierced, for those of you who don't know). We went out to eat and had a wonderful time and celebrated Kevin and the fact that he's leaving UPS this Monday...good for him, not for us! lol.

One thing I love about simply having the summer off, is I have time to hang out and spend time with friends and family. Memorial Day was a blast and we got to spend the day with our family. The weather was great, as has been the case for last month or so, which has allowed Andrew to come out on the weekends.. however.. that brings us to the latest excitement.
Yesterday, on the way up to our house, Andrew wrecked his motorcycle while going up 44 hill. Fortunately God was watching over him and he wasn't not seriously or badly hurt. But he did tear up his arm pretty good.

And so far, that pretty much sums up my summer thus far.
Looking foward to updating you soon!
