It's been awhile.... [11 Nov 2002|06:04pm]
[ mood | calm ]

So, I'm here at the library typing something out really fast before I leave. I'm getting off early because we have a salaried staff meeting on Thursday, so I get comp time. *dances*

Erm....Trey stood me up Saturday night, which kinda suprised me. We were supposed to practice to lead worship Sunday mornining. I waited for an hour and then left. Thankfully I had Shelby with me, otherwise I'd have gotten pretty pissed off. But, I figured it had to have been something pretty important. He's not the type to blow people off like some people I know.... Anyways, he explained what happen on Sunday morning. Although, I wish he would have called me Saturday night and told me why he didn't show up. But, I was nice and let him off easy. *lol* But, if it happens again then I may have to slap him. *nods* Don't you agree, Shelby? :)

Ok, I need to hit the gas station before heading home, so I shall end here. I hope everything is going well for you all. God bless....

Lonely me... [08 Nov 2002|09:38am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I'm at school all by myself, because Jason went home. *sigh* Oh well, I got caught up on my email, am chatting with Shelby, and am updating my LJ. All is well... as long at I don't forget to sign out of MSN messenger. Last time I forgot and some kid got on and was talking to my friends. *sigh*

Life is.....good. Really! *dances* Yesterday was so wonderful.... I didn't have to go to school OR work. One complete day of what I wanted and needed to do. Actually, I woke up early (7:30) after having a dream, which I won't get into... So, I figured that since I was awake, I'd get started on my day. I did all of my laundry, vacuumed and swept the floors, dusted, unloaded the dishwasher, went through all of my clothes and go rid of some, paid my bills, checked the mail, went on a walk, visited with Michelle, went shopping and found a skirt I've been looking for on sale for $10, read books, listened to good music...... I think that's about it. I feel quite accomplished. :)

Mom is coming up for the weekend to visit Aunt Lori and I, which will be fun. We have a full weekend planne. Plus... I have to work, practice with Trey, go to church, lead worship, probably do something with Emma.... Busy, busy, busy....

Ok, I have to practice the piano before my lesson in an hour, so I'd better get out of here. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I feel special... [08 Oct 2002|10:20am]
[ mood | grateful ]

I'm really looking forward to next weekend. I actually have some of my friends coming to the farm. I get to visit with people I haven't seen in weeks, months, and even years! *dances* Happy times are ahead. All I have to do is get through this week....and tomorrow is Wendesday already, then it'll be 1/2 over. YAY!

*

Ok, I have to pause and throw in some bad news, just because it's a part of life...

-Meredith quit the library! She gave no reason, just picked up her purse and left. I'm very upset about this. She was one of my favorite people to work with at the desk. I'm going to be so lonely without her! *cries* I know she's going through some hard time and I pray that she's doing ok. I think I will send her a note though...

-The family put my great g-ma in a nursing home yesterday. My family has been fighting about this for over 5 years. We promised her that we would never do that to her, the her kids went back on their word! I know most peope don't think it's a big deal. But, in my opinion, it's not biblical. TWO of her daughters don't work and could take her in, but they don't want to and their husbands won't let them. Anyways... today, she fell out of her chair. She hadn't been in the home 24 hours yet and she's already falling. Things are not looking good. Last night she was telling Lori that she wished she was dead...

*

Now, for some more happy thoughts to dwell on....

-God is good
-I am alive
-My family is always here for me
-I have friends that care
-The semester is almost 1/2 over
-I own good music
-There are many more good things I could list

When it rains, it pours [02 Oct 2002|11:44pm]
[ mood | worried ]

When I got home from choir around 10:30pm I found out that my great grandma fell downa and broke her hip and is in the hospital! She has surgery tomorrow... That's about all I know. I was pretty upset that nobody called me to let me know. *sigh* Oh well... I'll probably go up and see her tomorrow with my mom. Keep her in your prayers...

I don't really have much else to say. Something happy would be good for a change! *blah*

ACK! [01 Oct 2002|09:57am]
[ mood | anxious ]

Mom just called about an hour ago to let me know that the sheriff had been by. Why? To serve me a summons to court because I'm being sued!!! :(

Some of you may remember the huge wreck I got into last year in July. My car...actually, my parent's car... was totaled. I got the ticket because it was the front end of my car that got damaged and the side of the other guy's since he swerved to miss me. Well, I didn't fight it and just paid the ticket to be done with it. Now it's coming back to bite me in the butt! *sigh*

The passenger of the other car is the one who is suing me. Thankfully, she also suing the other driver, so that makes me feel a little better....but not much. So, I have a month to get a lawyer and figure everything out before going to court.

I know that God is in control, but I tend to worry. He's pulled me through so many times. I don't know why I doubt, but I often do. It's just my sinful human nature, I guess. I keep thinking, "WHY ME?!?" But, then again...why not me? God never promised me a perfect and easy life. At least I do know that..."All things work together for good to those that love God and are called according to His purpose."

For those of you who do, PLEASE pray for me!

Weekend Fun [29 Sep 2002|10:46pm]
[ mood | hot ]

Yesterday I went to the Ren. Fest. with Michelle and Eddie. It was fun. Eddie bought us each a rose. I though it was so sweet... He bought one for Michelle, but didn't want me to feel left out, so he bought me one too. I love hanging out with them. They're so funny when they worry that I'll feel like a 3rd wheel, but I hardly ever do because they're so considerate, down-to-earth, and family. :)

Today was church. I was so tired this afternoon that I took a short nap before practicing piano and leaving for band practice. Worship time went pretty good this evening. I got lost a few places, but oh well... We need some kind of organization for practice though. I feel like I'm just floating along. Sometimes it seems that Trey will show me how to play a song once and then expect me to have it memorized or something. He may be able to do that, but I can't. I need it written down and in front of me. *blah* It'll get better. I shouldn't let one bad day get me upset. I just need to talk to him about it. *nods* Yeah....

I feel like spilling everything that's on my heart out on here, but I don't really have the energy to do it... I'll just say one word that sums it up: turmoil. My heart, my soul, my mind, my body, my relationships. *blah* But, I trust in GOD and know that all will work out for His glory and for what is best for me. Indeed, what I say it truth. I must have faith! :)


Holding on,

I'm crazy, I know.... [26 Sep 2002|11:04am]
[ mood | peaceful ]

I'm wearing sunglasses while typing this. I went to the eye doctor's today and she dialated my eyes, so the computer screen is giving me an awful headache! *sigh* But, the good news is.... my eyes haven't gotten any worse. My prescription is still the same for my stupid reading glasses that I never wear. But, they don't help much, if I don't wear them. I've discovered that I never wear them because they're nice and don't travel easily. So, I think I'm going to get a second pair that I can take with me to school and church, etc... *nods*

I received a lovely postcard from Anne today! *dances* It was good to hear what she's been up to... She and Esther are having a wonderful time visiting castles and such in England. :)

Today is Sunday.... [22 Sep 2002|10:54pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

My hair decided to be wavy/curly today. I don't know why... Everyone really liked it though, so I may get some layers cut in my hair so that it will curl up a bit more. *shrugs* We'll see... I'm really wanting to grow it out though. I can't remember the last time I had my hair much longer than right below my shoulders. I'd like to see how it makes me look. Younger, probably. *sigh*

Our praise and worship band played all together for the first time tonight. It was an amazing feeling, leading people in worship. I wasn't even nervous! I got lost a few times, but I think Trey did to because after church he was like, "I'd lose my place but then I'd hear you playing and found the chords again." Yay for teamwork! I guess we may have a second guitar player at times too. Joe started this week as well. I'm so excited about getting everything moving along. I'd like to give suggestions, but hesitate because I don't want to come across as trying to take over. I mean, Trey is the one who started to whole thing... I just think we need a little organization, but we'll see how things go in the coming weeks. :)

We're studying Romans on Sunday mornings and Exodus on Sunday nights. Both have been really interesting. I love it when I'm challenged. I just hope and pray that I'm able to carry out what I've decided to change. *nods* An on-going struggle against the flesh and spirit. I guess I should be happy that I'm actually struggling to improve instead of being content with my current condition, but it makes me weary. There is rest to be found as well. Yes, indeed.


There are two kinds of people in the world:
Those who say to God, 'Thy will be done'
Those to whom God says, 'thy will be done'
-C.S. Lewis


Or, as my dad likes to say....

There are three kinds of people in the world:
Those who make things happen
Those who watch things happen
Those who say, "what happened?"



Until next time,

Poems about people.... [21 Sep 2002|11:34pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

You never do what you say
So I just stopped believing
You never see how it makes me feel
And I never tell you
Is that how it's supposed to be?
It's not completely your fault
But I'm not the only one blame
This childish game we must stop playing
And start having actual conversations
I want to take down my defenses
Without having to worry about being hurt
I'd like to say what's on my mind
Without having to worry about what you'd think
I want to hear what you're really saying
Without having to read beteen lines
I want to be a real friend to you
Without having to wonder if you're mine

*

Conversations
Short and sweet
Or
Long and deep
I can can read your mind
Like you read mine
Finishing each others sentences
Reading between the lines
Conversing with our eyes
Almost as if we know each other
Inside and out
Sharing our beliefs
Hopes
Dreams
Lending a hand
Giving advice
Being a shoulder on which to cry
I feel as though I can say anything
I know you'll still love me
For who I am

*

I pray you find a friend in me
Willing to listen
Ready to give
Meeting you half way
Not afraid to speak the truth in love
Keeping you in prayer
Hoping to inspire you
As much as you have uplifted me
Honest in word and deed
Eager to be faithful
Longing to be real

Silly me.... [17 Sep 2002|11:14pm]
[ mood | thirsty ]

So, I drive all the way to work this afternoon and then remember when I get there that I have today off because I work on Saturday. *grrr* I have become such a total ditz! I used to not be this way. I was on top of everything.... Life just isn't like that anymore. *shrugs*

Tomorrow I have a Lab Exam in Biology and a quiz in Spanish. Happy happy joy joy.... After that, I get to go to work and then to choir. I think we may get a storm tomorrow night too. That will be nice, if I don't have to drive in it. :)

I'd better get off and study...

A post of obligation.... [15 Sep 2002|09:40pm]
[ mood | weird ]

I haven't posted in a few days, so I thought I should. It's one of my many obligations... *snicker*

September is half over already. Can you believe that? If you can't, then you need a reality check because it's the truth! Nah, I'm kidding. You can go ahead and live in your dream world. I won't tell anyone. :)

I'm in a particularly strange mood at the moment. A mixture of a variety of feelings and emotions.

Band practice was cancelled again this week because Trey had something to go to. A dinner where the students from William Jewell meet their "foster families" or something? *shrugs* He kept apologizing for having to cancel again, but I told him that it's nice to see that I'm not the only in the band trying to juggle so many other things and sometimes get too busy for practice. We do need to get together and discuss our vision for the band though. It would be good to get everyone on the same page as far as where we're headng with the whole thing... *nods*



Most people are like a falling leaf
that drifts and turns in the air,
flutters,
and falls to the ground.
Bu a few others are like stars
which travel one defined path:
no wind reaches them,
they have within themselves
their guide and path.



I got my Spanish test back on Friday. I was 2 1/2 points from getting an A! *sigh* Oh well... maybe next time. I think Jason and I get our Biology test back tomorrow. *cringe* I'm trying to think good thoughts there...

I have an A in piano though. I'm getting better at sight reading, which makes me very happy. I got some pretty hard music to figure out this week, but the challenge is good. I'm really hoping to see a great improvement by the end of the semester. I know that if I work hard it will be possible.

Did I mention that I think I will take Newswriting again next semester? I really miss doing it! The paper came out on Friday and it looks so great. I was so excited. *lol* I think being an editor next semester will be alot better for me AND I won't be trying to write for another English class at the same time. All of the editors may be able to go to NYC for a journalism seminar or something, if the paper sells enough adds or something. So, that will be really awesome. :)

Ok, enough for now. Have a great week, y'all!

Not that it has anything to do with what I was going to post... *snicker*

Today was nice. Jason called about 8:30 to wake me up and came over around 9:30. We studied for our Biology test that is tomorrow, went on a walk, had a nice talk about music and stuff. The landlord came over to put in a gas line for our dryer. I am finally able to do laundry at my own house, so I did two loads. *dances* That's quite exciting, you know? :)


Thank God It's (almost) FRIDAY,

Trying in vain [11 Sep 2002|10:47am]
[ mood | optimistic ]

Life, in a sense, has become seemingly shallow. The depth that I'm yearning for is yet to come. No, it is here... I just have yet to grasp it. The will of the Lord is at my fingertips, if I'm willing to give of myself. My willingness is so half-hearted much of the time. I must not allow myself to be lukewarm. I have decisions to make, but there are so many gray areas that confuse me. I don't seek the counsel I need; and that which I do look for, I don't receive.

My goal is to truly live life. I feel as though I haven't been doing much of that lately. I'm just going through the motions. Nothing is from the heart, it seems. I know that we don't have to me emotional in order to be genuine, but I lack zeal. I'm in a rut that is getting deeper each day I let go by. But, I'm also running in circles, so that I can't catch up with myself.

I keep wanting to just take one day off to get everything right, but life doesn't work that way. I won't be able to get my life to fit in a perfect little box. I will never get caught up, because time keeps ticking by with every second of the day. Now that I've come to this realization, I can relax a bit more. I still need to simplify some things so I have a better handle on them, but I won't let the worry of getting it put stress on me. I will have the time when it needs done. That's all there is to it.


Waiting for time,

~Jenni~
