Putting away Christmas

Mon, 01/11/2010 - 14:25 — Carrie

Today, I put away Christmas. Packing all the baskets and pinecones up, wrapping up the lights, folding the stockings, cleaning up the tinsel garland. Wrapped in tradition, every Christmas piece brings memories. Perhaps, though, there are no more memory laden items than our many and varied Christmas ornaments. More than 200 ornaments grace our tree each year,

New Years

Crazy fun times Laughing out loud

On Thursday, New Year's Eve, I got on a plane and headed myself down to Alabama. It was a terrible trip. Absolutely miserable. The thought of getting there and seeing my friends was my only motivation for continuing to go Tongue

I got there. I got on a van. I drove with interesting soldiers down to Columbus. One guy talked the whole time about his experiences as an engineer in the Military. I tried to sleep, but couldn't Tongue

Well, I can't get the video I want to upload here, so I put it on my website. It might take a minute to load, so please be patient Smile

I'm tired and can't be held responsible for this blog. It's neither witty, nor ingenious. Consider yourself warned.

I'm sick, I'm tired, and I'm sore. I miss my friends. I miss my mom. I wish New Years was here. I wish I could go back to work because I'm bored.

Well, that was easy to write. I should go eat some chocolate, since that usually makes me feel better. Tongue

Now that I'm done complaining, I shall continue with my blog.

My surgery went well. The readership of this blog is limited, however, and you all know that already, so I won't go into detail.

A week with friends

Sun, 11/29/2009 - 16:37 — Carrie

Susan and Dakota both arrived in the state of Massachusetts with no major mishaps. The only minor mishap was not them, it was me, since I parked at A terminal, and then found out that Susan was at C terminal, so I ran almost the whole way (past signs warning people to take ground transportation, not walk from A to C since it was too far). Then I discovered that I had misheard her... she was not at C, she was at B, so I backtracked quickly to terminal B and found her.... excitement levels ran high. Then we went to Starbucks to get a smoothie and quiznos for some real food.

What do you believe?

Tue, 11/17/2009 - 13:01 — Carrie

Theology is a funny thing. It can be so solid for some people, and yet many people change what they believe so often.
When I was a child, I believed what my parents believed. My beliefs were very basic. Jesus died on the cross for my sins. The bible was true, and all the stories in it. God loves me, and I am His child. Those were the foundations of what I believed. Nothing much else mattered.

Am I an extravert?

Sat, 11/14/2009 - 20:31 — Carrie

I have long considered myself to be introverted. I like my alone time, and am often shy in social situations.
Upon further examination of myself, and the opinion of friends, I have decided that, while I may still technically be an introvert, I am really extremely close to extraversion. I do not get tired out when spending lots of time around groups of people. In fact, I like to be around people. When I know people, I am pretty much anything but shy Tongue
I also tend to be quite impulsive. This is apparently an extraverted quality.

I'm procrastinating.

I am supposed to be working on my 50,000 word novel but, well, when you put it that way, it sure sounds insurmountable, huh? Especially when you compare it to the measly 1800 words I've written so far Tongue

A Sunday School Lesson

Sun, 11/01/2009 - 12:08 — Carrie

I teach 1st and 2nd grade Sunday school. A couple months ago, I started a new series for the kids. I called it "God's Plan". I started with creation and am going through the bible, story by story, in chronological order. Each week, we see the main character and their struggles and triumphs. Lots of problems arise in their lives. Everything from death, to flood, to famine, to persecution, etc...
Each time a problem arises, I ask the kids, "Do you think God was surprised by this? Do you think He doesn't know what to do now? Do you think this person got the better of God?"

Have you ever had a friend or your sibling share their incredible burdens with you, and you say you'll pray, without even being able to express how heavy it lays on you?

Have you ever been praying so very, very hard for a sibling to make the right choice, but the more you watch, the more it seems they are not choosing so wisely?
