Minding Manners!


Okay, I'm sorry, but I have the notion to pack up and move to the UK, NOW!

'Minding Manners" is all about some Etiquette workshops offered for all (well mannered) people!
Do you know what I would give, sell, or do to go to Etiquette Camp!?!?

Judge me!...or don't and come with me!

In all seriousness though, what a freakin dream! I would be in Heaven to be immersed into a world of manners, and etiquette, and people that still believed both exist! WOW! Props to the UK!

I really do think I live in a dream world sometimes, as most would laugh if I mentioned going to an Etiquette Camp in the UK...but umm, I DID come across the site randomly, so I THINK that's a sign that I should sign up! Can you imagine the tee-shirts?!?!

God is good, all the time! All the time, God is good!

Hey girls!

Normally, I dont speak publically about my Religion, politics, or other things, but today I just have to!

These past few weeks have proved to be quite the challenge! I love my life, but sometimes, it gets to be a lot with school work, Cornhuskin' (Meredith's homecoming, im dancing with my friends!), ect...

Well, this afternoon, I was looking at all that I had ahead of me for the next few weeks...and I just lost it! I just got to the point where I was beyond overwhelmed, tired, and stressed! After about an hour of feeling absolutely hopeless, and worn out, I decided to pray! Yes, I know, it should take a matter of seconds to realize this, buttt, I try to do it all by myself sometimes! BAD IDEA!
All of the sudden, as I started to pray, I just felt this peace come over me. Sobbing, I just kept praying that I could get all of my stuff done, and my energy back! Well, then I turned on iTunes, and one of my many favorite Christian songs, "Savior, Please" (if you haven't heard it, you should! Its beautiful!) was playing!!
I spent about 30 good minutes in serious prayer, and made a to-do list of all that I had to accomplish in the next few days. Right after I finished, I felt so much better!

I sometimes forget to pray like I should, but each time that I pray, I remember why its the right thing to do! Nothing is better than faith! I need to remember that God didnt put me here for me to show him my plans, and when I get overwhelmed, I just have to give it up to God. I have been trying to take on a lot lately, and I do things my own way without any help. I clearly see now, that was an awful choice, and sometimes I just need to slow down, and let God take control, it saves me a lot of time, and confusion! SO much less stressful!! :)

Back when I did TWAM (Teens With A Mission) we always said "God is good, all the time! All the time, God is good! I could not agree more! From now on, I just have to step aside and let God take control, it always turns out 10 times better than I planned!

I just wanted to write this down and share!

Have a great Thursday! Any good Halloween Costume ideas?!?!
