Why You Be HATIN??????

I feel like there's been a lot of hate going around lately.

Entertainment hate. 

And it makes me sad.

Nuns With Guns

Sometimes, I do my fair amount of complaining about my job and working all of the time.

Then there are other times... it's AMAZING. 

This past weekend, PM2 and I took 3 high school youth to Peer Ministry Training where we spent the weekend hanging out with other churches & youth leaders, learning how to care for other people, came closer to God, and shared our hearts.

Sometimes You Sacrifice

It amazes me sometimes how the posts and stories that get the most views are ones about "Funks" or time when things just aren't that great. I love the responses too. Not that people go through "funks", because they just aren't fun. But that people are so willing to be open about how they go through it too and perfect strangers can give support to each other.

Something I've been thinking about for the past oh... 12 hours or so... that I think sometimes either cause our funks or play a hand in them ... is sacrifice.

Confession time. 

From Glee's "Funk" episode.
I've been in a funk, and I feel like this week and the last few days it's hit it's peak. I had a really rough week this week. Last night I unloaded on a couple of people, and it made me feel better. One of them was my mom and in response she just said "That's too much for one person to handle." Thursday I was talking to one of my DCE friends and we mentioned how every month when I see her I always have some crazy story to tell her of my life in Cape. There's always SOMETHING going on. She said I should write a book about it.

Drop Some Love- Ethan & Alex

Did you know....

That last month a family in Chicago received $2500 along with boxes and boxes and boxes of food, supplies, and other goods, from total strangers? Yeah. 400+ people came together, raised money, and donated to help a family in need. It's called Love Drop.

If you want to see the result of this check out my blog about it.

But now we get to do it again. Ethan & Alex have severe autism. Check out this youtube video about them.

Leavin' On a Jet Plane

For the second time within the last few weeks Lauren Lankford has inspired me. (The other time it was the whole Human Branding thing.) So in case you haven't noticed . . . SHES REALLY GOOD.  This morning one of her posts was featured on a blog. I had read this post before, and I remember it hit me really hard. Then when I read it for a second time this morning, it hit me hard once again. She asks the questions:

"What would you still have if you woke up tomorrow morning with all your possessions gone? What would you do if you were given one suitcase to fill in 10 minutes before you moved 3000 miles away? How would you deal with the material faux-foundation being stripped out from under your feet?"

I'm one of those people who complains about having too much stuff. This was particularly evident the tree times I've moved while living in Missouri. I remember lamenting to a friend of mine, who was also in the process of moving, about how I had too much stuff.
