Conflict

I've said it before.
I hate conflict. Especially when I can do nothing about it. *sigh*



It is Better to Obey

Mon, 03/15/2010 - 14:54 — Carrie

Lots of things have been running through my head, lately. Some more prominent than others. Let's see if I can get some of them down in an orderly fashion. Tongue

Yesterday, in Sunday School, I was talking about Saul and his reign as king. I dwelt particularly on the well known story of his defeat of the Amalekites.

Conviction

Sun, 02/21/2010 - 17:46 — Carrie

I went away for the weekend to a conference put on by Eric and Leslie Ludy. It was called the Set Apart Girls conference.

I tend to sometimes be a bit cynical of these type of conferences. People go, they get all emotionally high, the feel challenged, the feel convicted, they make some sort of commitment....



It's snowing...

and so I stay home from work.

I find it interesting that it's snowed so very much.... down south of us. People in Virginia were being told they had better clean off their roofs, cause more snow was coming and the roofs could collapse. Even the deep south of Alabama and Georgia were getting snow. Up to a foot of snow descended on Texas, establishing a record that will not likely be broken anytime soon.
And yet, here in the north, we've been able to see grass for the majority of the winter.



I'm tired

Mon, 02/08/2010 - 17:33 — Carrie

of so many things.
I'm tired of conflict. I'm tired of being unable to express how I feel to people that I really want to talk things over with. I'm tired of trying to balance important things in life. I'm tired of pretending.

One thing I'm not tired of, though, is life in Christ. Even on the worst days. Even when I feel like I can't keep up a happy face, He sustains me, encourages me, and shows me that He is all I really need.
Proverbs 19:23
"The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil."



Weekend in PA

Tue, 02/02/2010 - 20:48 — Carrie

We went to Pennsylvania this weekend. It was fun

I had to go to work on Friday. It was miserable. I kept wishing I was in PA, already, with Mark and Susan. Plus, I was worried sick about Kim, Kris, and Kate, who were stuck in various airports. I didn't know what was going on with them, cause I couldn't get on the computer for a while. Very frustrating.



Encouragement

There's nothing like reading the Psalms when you need encouragement Smile

Psalm 77



Empty

Thu, 01/14/2010 - 15:28 — Carrie

What can I say when my words have no voice?
Why should I cry when my heart has no tears?
How can I think when I've too many thoughts?
Why do I shake when I'm feeling no fear?
How can I feel when I'm empty inside?



Ping Pong

I went over to my friend, Jennie's house recently. I hadn't seen her in a few weeks, and hence, had many things to catch up with her on. In the course of our conversations, we got talking about relationships between guys and girls, and how sometimes guys have no idea how much they are hurting a girl by how they treat her. Example: A guy wants a girlfriend, so he becomes really, really close friends with several girls. None of the girls know how close this guys friendship is with other girls, they think it's only them.
