that late at night when you should be in bed, and when you are tired that you are most inspired to write something. It's odd to me at times when I really stop to think about it.

We played hockey tonight, in the pouring rain I might add - and then Sherize, Bep, Blaine, Steve and I headed to Tim Hortons - the others bailed out. It was fun, I mean Bep and I did lengths at the pool, then played some awesome street hockey, then hung with some great friends over coffee and coke - doesn't get much better then that.

I am starting to face the fact that I am scheduled to soon be leaving Alberta - this thought saddens me as I have grown a lot down here - worked through a lot, and ultimately fallen in love with the "wild" west. It is tempting to stay here due to various reasons.

I don't know what the future holds, I suppose that is the alluring part of life, although there are times when I wish I just knew why things happened. But, wouldn't knowing take the mystery and discovery out of life. So, I wait, sometimes with bated breath - and sometimes without realizing it - to see what the future holds.

Have a good sleep people! Remember to live life to the fullest!

"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
and naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave,
and the Lord has taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord."

In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.


Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!


Sometimes it is hard for me to sing that song - but I am trying to trust that it's true adn that God has a purpose in everything.

Do you ever have it where you are so sure about something that you forget to keep looking at the signs? It's like you're so convinced that something is the right thing, that you miss all the little details that tell you that you are making a bad choice. It's afterwards when you get your 20/20 vision back again, that you start to notice all the glaring signs along the way. It's then that you feel like a silly person who can't think.

On a happier note, I am camping this weekend and having a blast while doing it. Hangin out with my homies from the hood!! Tonight I am going to a national break dancing competition, which should be totally awesome, and I can't wait.

So, I hope you'll all enjoying your long weekend - I know I am!

So, I am having one of those days where I am acting like a complete blonde, and I am not really able to focus on anything. For example:

1. I droped the phone like three times today at work when picking it up - a little awkward when the one time it was my boss checking in......kerthump...me muttering....Good Morning....blah blah blah.....silence on the other end.....then a "uh, hi, it's Paul". Whoops.

2. I am going to drop some stuff off at the post office, I put it on top of the car - and say to Danielle, who I was driving home, "Woudn't it be funny if I forgot this on the roof and drove away"....we laugh. I get in the car, start it..and look over at Danielle who has the oddest look on her face....I say "What" she says "The roof" I was like "What roof" she says "You left the stuff on the roof". I couldn't stop laughing, like five seconds earlier I said wouldn't it be funny...then I do it. Sheesh.

3. I lock my keys in my apartment....who does that? I get out, go to get into my car and realize I don't have my house keys. My landlord is not home. I used the spare car keys I have, but I can't get into my house when I get home. I hope my landlord is home...if not.....do bobby pins open doors?

I have a bad feeling about myself now...I think I am a walking blonde hazard to humanity:)
So, I decided to add some new links to my blog, and I thought I'd tell you about it cause I'm weird....or maybe I just live on my own so I feel that need to connect with people:)

Anyhow, a new blogging friend is Scott....and he's now on the sidebar. He works at the army base

And a new place to visit in your spare time is Marshill Church, which is also an added link under mylinks. This is a great place to hear some very encouraging and challenging sermons. I highly suggest that you stop by and take a listen....especially the series on 1 Corinthians....topics such as "Good Sex, Bad Sex" and "Judging like Jesus" are both briliantly done and convicting....also a few laughs involved.

Anyhow, I am off to the pool....wish me luck:)
This week should be short for me, as I am only working three days due to the fact that Nick and Dax were down for the weekend. However, this week seems long, even though it is already Thursday, odd how that happens.

I am eating lasagna right now. I made it this weekend, and amazingly enough did not kill anyone with my cooking, and now I get the leftovers for lunch - fantabulous I must say...not having to cook and being able to grab something out of the fridge and run out fo the door.

After all, Nicole can tell you that I am not a morning person, as she tried to wake me up for Good Friday Service once upon a time. So making a lunch in the morning is not going to happen for me.

I had an awesome weekend hanging out with Nick and Dax, although it was rather short. I also finished season 4 of Gilmore Girls with them....rah rah!!

Tonight I am going swimming, as I may be in a triathalon next week, that could be interesting to say the least. If you don't hear back from me, I'm most likely at the bottom of the pool somewhere:)
