God speak

Wow! I haven't blogged in about a week or too. But I had to share this with the world. I was cleaning my kitchen, and sweeping when a song came on my MP3 player. It was the song about the little boy who is wanting to buy his mom a pair of shoes for Christmas. This would be her last Christmas and he wanted to buy her a perfect present, but more importantly he wanted to make sure she looked pretty when she meet Jesus. This made me think of the children from camp new life. This summer is gonna be a summer where I will get to know the children who come to camp and their many problems and well lack there of. But coming up there is an opportunity for many people in Haywood County (it's not limited to Haywood County, if you want to know i'll tell you how to donate) to donate their money to help camp run. What a better way to give an early Christmas present to a child than the gift of Jesus in their lives. On May 1st there will be the give 1 dollar change many children's lives donation. Be in prayer for this event and more importantly be in prayer for the children that will be attending camp!!!!

Snow ... Snow ... and more snow!!!

As I sit here looking out my picture window at the 300th snow we have had this year, I can't help but think of how i am ready for spring. But than I heard this song and it was so beautiful and the pictures on the video were wonderful. I couldn't help but sit here and look out my window in awe of how God must want us to stop and rest for a little bit. The link below is to the song "Winter song" by Chris Tomlin, and sun by Audrey Assad. I hope you enjoy!

This is off topic but I love this quote!
"I believe in pink, I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn

1 Corinthians 7:17

"And do not wish you were someplace else or with someone else... where you are right now is God's place for you. live and obey and love and believe right there." 1 Corinthians 7:17

You know the more and more I think about this the more it is true. I need to stop wishing for other things in life. It is good to dream but I think that I wish too much. I am right where God wants me in life, and I need to be happy with that!

Another Bible verse that just came to mind was "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer. 29:11

This is true! God has me right where he wants me!

Ego Booster

So I just had an ego booster on facebook! Someone posted on their status to "Go to and type in your first name, copy and paste this as your status and the first entry for your name under comments." So I did! And this is what i got:

"Melanie means dark lady in Greek. Awesome person and someone you should definitely get to know. Someone funny and loves to make people laugh. Isn't afraid to get embarrassed and a great friend. Hard to be serious at times, but she's always going to make the right choices in the end. A very lovely lady and great at pranks. Someone whose outgoing and willing to try new things. She's pretty, smart, hot, sexy, and etc.
everyone needs some Melanie in their lives!!
I love MELANIE!!"

That just made me feel good!

Another thing that made me feel good today. My wonderful boyfriend came by today just for a few minutes to see me! :-) That really made me feel good!

So this weekend we are suppose to be getting snow AND ice AGAIN!

This might make me miss seeing Jessica. Ugh it's been so long since I have seen her. I guess we will see.

Impending Ice

Seriously more ice is coming! I think I would be ok if we got more snow. At least you can drive on snow. Speaking of driving, my little ion is doing rather well in this mess at the moment. I almost didn't make it up Tuscola hill today because of ice. I was very smart and tried again at a different angle and put it low and made it quite safely up the hill. One of my friends at work almost didn't make it into the parking lot. Bless her heart! I felt horrible. She kept spinning around and around. Her child was cracking up in the back seat, she was not. SO we shall see what tomorrow morning holds for us! eeeekkkk

One a more lighter side my things for camp are slowly coming together. I have applications done and now I am working on some other things. But God sure is showing me this is the place for me. I have heard from several people the past few days about helping at camp. They have told me how much they are praying for me and are willing to help. It's a totally blessing, and I am so glad that God is showing me that is right place for me. I just need help with Camp ideas, ie. which Bible stories I should use. Camp crafts, games etc! Any body have any ideas?
