I can't remember where I was reading but I came across this reading that really got me thinking!

It was on silence and the power that silence holds.

In the reading was this quote that really got me thinking and praying!

"I think the devil has made it his business to monopolize on three elements: noise, hurry, and crowds. Satan is quite aware of the power of silence." -Jim Elliot

It's so true! think about it. When was the last time that you were in silence? We go from the car with the radio to the store, work, or school with people and music and other noises, bible studies, even going home you turn on the TV or radio or some form of music or people start talking. When is it truly silent?

not that it is a bad thing to have noise and to listen to music or people talking but there is a time for silence. A time to just wait on the Lord and hear from Him.

So I tried silence! Instead of turning on the ipod in the car and instead of talking to God I was just silent. I waited on God! It was awesome! I have to admit at first it seemed a little strange but then it became nice! It is very refreshing! Since then I have been trying to spend some time everyday in just silence and peace!

I challenge you to spend sometime in silence I know sometimes it seems impossible with kids or other people around but there is always sometime you just don't realize it yet!!

Let God work through the Silence!

Is it bad that I have file for jury duty...

how can it be that most people never get that dreaded piece of mail... jury duty?

or some people get it once when they are in their 20s and never have it again?

and then there are people like me that every single year since i turned 18 i have gotten the summon in the mail ugh!!

and then some people that get summoned for jury duty call in and then never actually go to the court house and then if and only if they do get called in they never actually get put on the stand or anything they just sit in the room all day and get let go.

not me... the odds are completely against me! my last day of service was June 17th 2008 and now i get to call in October 30th so lame! and every time I have had it so far i have had to go into the court and then get put on the stand and asked questions. thankfully i have never been asked to be on a case! i would die! i can't miss that much school! hopefully this year will work in my favor and i won't have to go in at all and if I do that they will let me off because of my sisters wedding the next week. that would be nice!

oh well I guess I am just the one that has all the random stuff happen that no one else ever experiences i am that one in a million the one they right all the side effects for :)... more on that another time

My relaxing day with Allison!

Yesterday was such a blessing!

As my first school budget closure day I decided I was not just going to sit around bored all day!

So I decided I would go down to San Clemente to get Pedros and just hangout for the day! So I asked Allison if she wanted to go with me!

Well the day started out amazing! I took Daytona down to the beach to go for a run at 600am it was amazing! It was the most perfect morning!

I picked Allison up around 11 and we started our drive down to get lunch. We at Pedros which was amazing!!!

Then we headed down to oceanside/carlsbad to go to the beach. It was so nice to just relax in God's beauty and hangout with Allison. Then the Lord totally did something awesome for Allison! I am totally excited for her and can't wait till she moves down and I can go visit her!

Anyway the day ended up being very relaxing and refreshing!
