Tid Bits!

It's election day!! Yay! I am feeling good today. Hubs and I went to a prayer vigil at the church we have been attending (but haven't joined YET) last night. It was a 24 vigil and boy was it refreshing. I don't know that I have felt that close to God in a while. It was so refreshing to leave knowing that this election is GOD'S WILL! Whatever happens is His will! No need to worry, no need to stress. It's absolutely in His hands. And I have peace with that. And I love that I have peace with that! And He will receive all the glory and honor for whatever happens! So much talk about the election and crap, so I won't go into my opinions and beliefs. I will leave you with this website to take a look at. And I would encourage you to look at it!! Very insightful!

Moving on... thank you girls for your sweet/funny comments on my post about 80's night! :)

Also I am pretty upset that I had to come into work this morning, turn on my computer, open Internet Explorer (homepage is People.com) and find this TRAGIC news... Deanna and Jesse from The Bachelorette broke up!!! I am sooooo sad! To see his tearful story of the breakup, visit here. I loved them together and I really wanted them to work. Oh well, I guess I can't be too surprised with all the dang press they did after the finale. Poor Jesse!

So sweet friend at Tweet Tweet, Chirp Chirp gifted me with an AWESOME Pay It Forward surprise!!! Thank you thank you thank you my friend!! It's an Envirosax bag!! And I can't wait to march in to buy groceries and look all stylish with it :) "Chic, in-expensive and compact, Envirosax® environmentally friendly shopping bags carry the message of re-use to a world ready to embrace a brighter ecological future."

AHHH! Like that wall website... only confirms things for me... and seriously, I was so upset when she picked Jesse, but its still sad that they broke up.

Caro said...

I'm so sad to read about DeAnna and Jesse! I think they need to throw in the towel for the Bachelor/ette series. I LOVE the show each season but obviously it isn't very successful! :(

Jessica said...

I agree with your thoughts on the election. I actually made a similar post a few minutes ago.
More importantly (jk.. maybe) I am so so sad to see that they Deanna and Jesse broke up!! I haven't read the story yet so I don't know the details, but I really liked them together :(

Nicole said...

I love all of your encouraging words! I think we all need that every now and then.

I also opened up my home page today and found out about Jesse and Deanna.....I was shocked! So sad and his video is hard to watch. Poor guy!

Kitty Cat said...

I love that you have peace and know that whatever happens is God's Will. That's the key, isn't it? Accept the things we can't change, knowing we cannot control everything.
Congrats on the award, girl!!! Love your great blog!
