God's timing, not mine.

Last week I went to see my friend, Hillary's new baby girl, Harper! She is sooooo precious! I love holding babies... best part is I get to give them back to their parents whenever I want! It's really the best of both worlds!  Here is a pic of me and that sweet little girl!

I've spent most of my time looking for a j.o.b. I must say, I HATE IT! I've looked into part time gigs, where I can be my own boss/make my own schedule (such as Scentsy and Thirty-One). As I began my search and asked around two of my friends suggested I look into Thirty-One Gifts. I was super stoked to find out that it was a Christian based company and everything I read and looked at seemed that it was going to be the perfect fit for me! Well, after I decided that it was something I'd like to try and praying that God would show me if this was a good opportunity or not, I went to the website to find out that just that day they stopped taking in new consultants. WOW, talk about God shutting that door! So now, I'm back to trying to find something... I need to be making some money, like yesterday,ha! BUT seriously, I'm doing all I can to trust that God is going to show me his plan and all the doors will open just when they are suppose to but I must admit, I'm nervous. It's also disheartening to be putting out my resume to TONS of places and filling out endless amounts of applications and not even hearing one word. It's not like I'm applying for jobs out of my potential, honestly that might be part of it, maybe I'm over qualified. I don't know, I just keep praying and hope that you would continue your prayers for me that I would find something and quickly.

I'm very excited because on Sunday my mommy is coming to visit!!! WOOOO HOOOO!!! I miss her so terribly, I've been looking forward to this visit ever since I left Arkansas, I must say, it's has been keeping me going! Sunday night my cousin, Ricky and my Uncle Rick are coming up to celebrate Ricky's birthday, I'll make sure to take pictures for my next blog post!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Busy last few days...

I've been pretty busy the last few days... Thursday, my dad and Starr came down to watch Taylor (granddaughter) in the basketball State finals... After a VERY intense game on Thursday, the Fort Gibson Lady Tigers won and made it to the next round! Friday the game was in the morning and even more intense than Thursday nights game... but in the last seconds (yes, I said SECONDS) of the game, one of the players hit a shot and won the game by 1 point!!!! WHEW!!! So they advanced to the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP and after overtime and an even MORE intense game, THEY WON!!!!! Here are some pictures from the Championship game! So proud of Taylor London, she is a rock star!
Score after the Championship game

Me and Taylor, the STATE CHAMP!

It was a crazy few days full of exciting basketball games! So glad I got to be there!

Saturday night, I spent the evening at my best friend Stephanne's birthday party! We had a great time and I laughed harder than I have in a really long time! BUT I forgot to take any pictures, I know, most of you are surprised by that! Sunday, I just didn't feel very good and spent most of the day asleep in bed. I'm feeling much better today and finally well rested!

Today, I've been looking for jobs online, I feel like I have applied for 100 jobs within the last week... that's of course an exaggerations but I know I have applied for a TON! Just waiting to get some calls! I hate waiting, but I'm trusting that it will all fall into place in God's timing.

Well, I hope you all had a great weekend as well! Enjoy your week!

Trusting in His plan...

"For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Well, I spent yesterday in the car, driving home from Arkansas... over the course of my week there and looking for a job I kept feeling like God was telling me I was suppose to stay in OKC for awhile and really get involved with Lifechurch.tv and stop just being a spectator. So, on Sunday morning, I broke this news to my mom... after crying most of the day at random times, I got up on Monday and took the long drive home. I have to say, I know that this is God's plan and not mine, because my plan is to be close to my mom... she's my best friend and to be 6 hours away from her is dreadful. I'm use to seeing her EVERY SINGLE DAY! But I have to rest assure that God's plan is bigger than mine and he's going to open the doors and provide for my needs. ***Side note: as I was just typing this I got a call from Lifechurch about serving in their youth department, the funny thing is, I just literally said that I'd be interested in doing that online right before I started on this entry... I know God is in control.

Please be praying for me. I keep repeating the verse I put above in my head over and over... because to be honest, I'm afraid. I have a very short amount of time to find a job, get moved out of my grandma's house so she can put it up for sale, and then when her house sells she'll be moving to Hot Springs to be with my mom and Doug, which will leave me in OKC, alone. I'm trusting in God's plan and not in my own and trusting that He is going to comfort my heart and my families as we will be so far away and not be seeing each other near as often. But again I know God is in control.

Anyways, it's time for the job search to begin yet again, but this time... I've got to take almost anything I can get that will pay the bills.

God is in control.
God is in control.
God is in control.

Ok Ok Ok, I know he is.

I hope you all have a great rest of the week! Thank you for your continued prayers! I appreciate them more than you know! :)

Oh Arkansas...

Well, I brought my mom home (to Arkansas) on Monday... it was an incredibly long drive (longer than usual) but we made it. I've been really having a hard time trying to adjust to the Arkansas way of life... everything is a much slower pace and NO ONE gets in a hurry. Considering I'm a CITY GIRL at heart, this new way of life is far more difficult than I ever expected. I have been looking for a job here, preferably in Little Rock but trying to keep my focus on God's will and not mine (which is VERY difficult). I'm not sure where he is leading me, but I am trusting in his plan. I ask that you would pray for me, pray that I would be placed right where God needs me to be and that I would have peace about it. Right now, I'm away from my doggies (which are my pride and joy) and even though that may sound stupid to you, it's VERY VERY difficult for me. I'm praying that God shows me where he wants me and opens up the doors quickly, I know it will be in his timing but I am praying that it's sooner rather than later so I can get to where I am going to be, settle in, and get my pups back by my side!

Please also be praying for a friend of mine that is traveling to Africa on a Mission Trip in a week... pray for safe travels and the people that she will come into contact with! Her blog is http://accordingtomechel.blogspot.com/ please follow her amazing journey! She inspires me daily with the life she leads! Talk about a woman of God!  :)

Tomorrow, we (my mom, Doug, and I) are headed to Little Rock for me to check out the scene... If anyone knows of a good job in the Hot Springs/ Little Rock/ Benton area PLEASE let me know!

I appreciate your continued prayer! :) Have a great night!
