Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!!!!!

I will be honest. I am not really into Halloween that much. I do like dressing up, but my friends and I do that throughout the year. I was planning on going to a costume party tonight. I was going to be Pam from The Office. (I love that show.) My Mom is in town so my plans have changed. I really want to hang out with her. I miss her tons. 

I am at work now. Saturday's are slow in a small town flower shop. Special when today happens to be the opening day of deer season, and it is beautiful outside. I am not a hunter. I see Bambi in every deer. Secretly I do enjoy the product of the hunt.

I am enjoying Michael Buble's new cd Crazy Love. I heard it in Starbucks the other day and had to have it. So I just downloaded it. It is really good. It is him doing other popular songs. I recommend it. 

Today is a very special day for my family. My little sister in particularly. It is still a secret though so I can't give you all the fabulous details just yet,but I promise when I can I will spill it all!!!!!

Well I think that is all I have to ramble about this morning. I hope that everyone has a wonderful Halloween. Eat lots of candy for me.

So I am pretty new to this whole blog thing. Even though I have been doing it for a while, I am just now getting into it. I finally found my first comment (that I received last Christmas), and today I got my first follower. Thanks Sonja!!!! I am so excited. I am really enjoying reading everyone's blogs and writing my own.

Blog Dedication

I learned today that through my Facebook I had been witnessing to someone that really needed it. She is a good friend of mine, but we have lost touch over the past year. She has really been able to see a change in my life just through Facebook. I think that is amazing. So it got me to thinking about how important God really is in my life. I owe everything to Him. I want my life to be a sacrifice to Him. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, "....whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." That is what I am going to do. I am going to dedicate this blog, my Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace to God. I am going to use it for the better of His Kingdom. At this very moment I don't have any followers, but I am praying that God will use me and littlepieceofsunshine to touch the lives of His people. I am in love with My Savior, and I want to share that with His people.

Until the whole world hears,

He Loves Me

Working in a flower shop I have to do a lot of pruning of flowers. It always makes me think of the old "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" superstition. I used to do that as a child. Ok and when I was a little older than a child. I would really wonder if that certain guy really loved me like he said he did. It was really a very miserable feeling- the wondering. Things have changed in my life and now what matters to me is God's love. And the great thing about God's love is I never have to wonder. No how many times I "pluck the flower" it will never end on He loves me not. In Jeremiah 31:3 God says, "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love." (MSG) That is so reassuring to me. I never have to doubt Him. I can trust that He will love me forever and always no matter what.

My Moment

Have you ever had a moment that you wish you could just freeze in time and save forever? Save everything about it: the atmosphere, the feeling, the surroundings; absolutely everything. I imagine that these moments for a lot of you are filled with joy, happiness, excitement, you surrounded by people you love, doing things that you love. I admit that I have a few of those moments in my life, but it is not the moment that inspired this. No that moment was one of quite and peace. It was me standing alone in the dark night with the glare of the moon shinning on me. The air was warm and the wind was subtle. This moment was very simple, yet it was spectacular. In this moment I felt true contentment and the very presence of God.

Season Change

Today I can really feel the season change in the air. Summer is ending and fall is beginning. It is such a beautiful time of year. The temperature is pleasant as the summer heat fades in preparation of the winter chill. The colors are changing and the leaves are starting to fall-getting rid of the old in anticipation of new life. I would have to say that fall is one of my favorite times of year. Oddly enough, on this day of noticeable season change, I have a strong sense of change and a pull on my life. My past is tugging at me to stay and my future is pulling at me to change and leave the past behind. For an instance this pulling sensation is painful, but with a deeper look it is exhilarating. The conflict is breading change from the inside out. The beautiful thing is that I can make this a win-win situation. I can have both the past and the future. My future will be bright with endless opportunities, and the past is a part of me. The past help make me who I am today. There would be no spring without fall and no future without a past.

Third Day

I had the awesome experience to go to a Third Day concert. I also got the chance to meet the group. It was so awesome. They were the nicest most down to earth people. The music was great. The show was great. Mac Powell's voice is even better in person. What was so awesome was that the concert was not about the group. It was about God. They were there to worship God. I loved the experience.

I discovered something last night that was really profound for me. Blood does not make you family. It takes so much more than that. Family is about sharing, giving, loving, growing, belonging, and counting on people. Family is about the time you spend and share with each other. Family is about memories of the past, the joy of the present, and the hope of a future together. Family is personal and always there. Family is love and acceptance. I love my family so much and thank God for it.
