A fun weekend

Hey again, sorry I haven't been posting in the last few days. I've been pretty busy with work and some other stuff. I was thinking about how many people would read my blog in a couple of months or a year, I should say that I was wondering. Anyway- Well, I am off of work today because the family I work for are very nice, and because me and Josh are going to get our passports for our vacation in July this morning. I'm excited for some reason, I guess only because this means we're really going! I will let you know how it goes, I'm sure it's a simple process, it's just the HUGE amount of money they want for the little thing, and waiting until it arrives to you in the mail. Whenever they feel like sending it to you, I guess. It's funny how waiting can be such a countdown!

Me and Josh went dancing Saturday night. Not at a nightclub (can we say never),, but at a real DANCE STUDIO!!. Besides Prom, and the Marine Corps Ball,, I've never done anything remotely close to what we did. Needless to say, it was a very entertaining experience, and It was SOOO MUCH FUN! We learned several dances, the Two Step, Cha Cha Cha, and the Waltz. My husband surprised me at how well he did for his "first real dancing lesson", and I dare say he did even better than me. :) However, my toes were happy to be off the dance floor by the end of the night, hahaha. We went with another friend, and she is the one who introduced it to us in the first place. I definitly want to go back sometime in the near future. Now, if only I can find some real dancing shoes, and not Sunday shoes I will be much better, I think.

We went to church yesturday, and it was really a blessing to me. Our Pastor preached on Colossians 3 23-27 I beleive. It definitly spoke to me in even some of the things I am guilty of sometimes, ie, having a bad attitude, and saying hurtful things. Now notice I said some of the time. hehe.. you can go to my church website, and watch the whole sermon online., or just click on the link on the side of my blog where it says "My Church". Pastor Johnny told the congregation yesturday that he would be speaking about "The church of Oprah" next week, and I am anxious to go and actually learn more about what she calls "her religion". My sister has recently commented on her blog about this issue, and I whole heartedly agree that it is very scary, and very sad to know that she is so lost and deceived, and that she has so much influence on other people, people that call themselves Christians even, and that she wants to "recruit" more people into beleiving the false teachings that she does. Christians need to stand up for what they beleive in, THE TRUTH as I like to call it, and pray diligently for the lost that they would come to find the Only Way, Jesus. I could go on and on, and beleive me I would love to be able to share my faith with Oprah, but until that day comes, I will just do what I can, share with others, and pray for her.

Thankfully, we just returned from getting our Passports. It was a fairly simple process, other than writting the checks :),, so hopefully in about 6 to 8 weeks we will be able to call ourselves "World Travelers", or just people with Passports, hahaha... anyway- so that's taken care of, and all we have to do now is just wait for our wonderful vacation! Well, I am going to go and enjoy the rest of my day off, and I will write later! Thanks for reading, see you next time.

~*~ Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.*~*~

I am impressed with Mr. Twinkle Toes! Who knew he could dance so well. Dont let Steve know or Josh will never live it down!

Yay for passports, but even more YAY for cruisey vacations! I would just like to go to Gatlinburg right now - anywhere to get away!

Hey to those who read this. This young lady is my daughter and I'm proud of her even though she can't dance according to Josh. She is top-notch and a blessing.
Love you very much, Dad
