Happy Anniversary

Today I celebrate 5 years of marriage to my best friend. We have grown from high school sweet hearts to soul mates. I'm so blessed to have him as my husband. He makes me smile everyday. Even when I am mad or upset he can make me smile.

Michael thank you for making our life together a fun one, we have been through so much through out our relationship & marriage. I wouldn't want to go through this crazy, but fun life with out you. I cant wait to grow old with you. You are the LOVE of my life!
I love you soooo much.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our wedding day ...

The definition of church is: "a building for public worship". I have been going to First Baptist Church since I was an infant... really I was born into that church!! I have been through two wonderful pastors, the O so sweet & late M.L. Jones & now Steve Swofford. I was baptized in the church, I made life long friends in the church, I've shed tears and said good bye to loved ones in that church, and I really feel at home in that church. But the past year every Sunday I dread going to church because MY "building for worship" has lost me. I'm not feeling connected with the music at my church. I know that every body praises and worships in their own way, and I’m not saying that FBC's music is the wrong way, but it is not touching me the way I need it to. So I've been "church hopping" I’ve gone to a VERY large church with an AMAZING praise & worship team I felt like I was at a Christian rock concert it truly lifted me up, BUT I felt like a small butterfly that landed in the middle of the ocean. I could go to that church everyday for the next year & the pastor would never know I was there.... I didn't like that. So then I've "hopped" over to a church that is just starting. It has been meeting in a school & at some of the members homes until they get a building. It had that AMAZING music I crave & what was sooo impressive about this church is they rocked out (Christian style of course) with only the basic music instruments & 5 people on the praise team. I loved this pastor & he defiantly knows everyone because it is so small & still growing... but it has that charismatic style with speaking in toungs & alter calls. This little Baptist girl has NEVER seen that before and not sure how I feel about it yet? So I’m in limbo, I feel guilty for leaving the only church home I know… I know God does not care where you go just as long as you go… but I’m steel torn… So I guess this is just a “vent” post…. PRAY for me on this matter!!!!!

The Church in the picture was a church we saw off of our Balcony in San Antonio

This sweet puppy wondered into our yard & stayed with us alllll day while we did yard work. That evening I walked him all over old town looking for his owners, no one claimed him. So he spent the night with us & the next day I called the shelter & local vet's offices to see if anyone called looking for him... No one had called :0( Dr. Loftis scanned him to see if he was micro chipped & he wasn't. SOOOO we adopted him out to my friend Lindsey's co-worker & friend. They fell in love with each other & I'm so Happy he found a wonderful new home!!!!
