I'm sure that if you've known me for 14 years, you've heard the story of how I almost drowned. Well, Nancy's the only person out of my readers that I know for sure has heard it... so I'll tell it to you right now.

When I was three, our family went camping a lot with another family called the Arriolas. One time, late in spring, we went camping at Big Rocks Park in Glen Rose, when the rain had made the little Paluxy river swell to a swift current.

I had my dinosaur ring floatie, and I was all set, but my parents warned about the little space between the rocks where the current could sweep me away. Well, knowing me, I was curious to see whether my floatie would hold me up, so I disregarded the instructions and stepped into the deeper water.

Immediately, I was swept off my feet, my floatie was lost, and I started travelling down the river. I almost drowned, but at the last possible second, a man saved me.

Recently, my grandpa has been trying to help a family who is in a lawsuit over the custody of their child. The family recently lost another child, who accidentally drowned, and now the CPS is charging them with neglect. My grandpa is trying to find the man who saved me, so that he and my parents can be a witness for the family, but my parents don't know who he is. My mom says that she never actually met the man, because the Arriolas were the ones who went and got me.

We may never find out who that man was, but I think he was an angel.

Either that or the guardian angels turned his head to see that little girl floating down the river.

All I know is that I've experienced a miracle.

God has something important planned for me, or I'd be dead right now. I can't take my life for granted, because God, the creator of the whole UNIVERSE, thinks I'm important. He has a plan; I'm sure of it.

Lately I've been feeling God working more and more. In the past week, several people have told me that God has blessed them through me. Just hearing that makes me want to grow closer to God... closer than I've been in a long time... maybe even closer than I've ever been. Please pray for me as I follow Him.

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Romans 6:11

Christ died in place of ME. For MY sins. I thank God for sending his only son, whom he LOVED, to DIE, so I wouldn't have to!

Christ died for YOU, too.
[If] you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9


It's kept between me and God.

I always want to write blogs... but I never know what to write about.

I feel unable to write about what I want to because this IS the internet... and ANYONE can see this...

I wish I could use this like a diary... but it wouldn't be private... no diary ever is anyway... writing it all down just provides the possibility that someone will read it...

No. the best place to keep those thoughts to myself is in my mind... but I do want to tell people sometimes... No. I can't.

I don't want to write it down for fear my future self will see it as stupid and shallow... but then, who DOESN'T grow over the years.

I don't want to write it down.

Sometimes it's best to keep it between me and God.

"There comes a point in every vegetarian's life when they just can't take it anymore. Mr. Jamey tried the whole vegetarian thing once. It lasted about two days."


Mr. Jamey (when explaining to people about drunk dialing): "Say this - this is a recording. leave your message after the beeep. I SAID SHUT UP!"
Daryl: "Is this a personal experience, Mr. Jamey?"
Mr. Jamey: "Yeeeessss."


I'll always love you, but I don't have to like you all the time.

I'm angry and hurt that my brother couldn't put himself aside long enough to sing me happy birthday and eat cake.

I know it's just human nature to be selfish, but I've got to admit that sometimes it really makes me MAD!

For crying out loud, it was just lighting some freaking CANDLES!

Of course, it didn't help that I haven't gotten enough sleep in weeks... I can't wait for summer.


"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been." ~Mark Twain

I think the most attractive thing a person can have is joy.

Forget what people think, and just smile...

REALLY smile.

A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
Proverbs 15:30
