Day 155

"When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart's delight." Jeremiah 15:16

I chose this one because I love reading to bible.

I am going to hand in my two weeks notice tomorrow (well it will be twelve days notice cause I want to end at the end of a pay period) I just can't stay at AW anymore. We taxed in a bad manager for an over zealous one, and I never liked it there to start with. I still have nanny and dog walking which will be enough.

Day 154

"As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor" Ecclesiastes 10:1

No reason, just picked it

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Day 153

"You can make many plans, but the Lord's purpose will prevail." Proverbs 19:21

I chose this verse because it reminds me of the saying... If you want to hear God laugh, tell Him your plans. I make many plans, but they only work if God wants it to.

Here is a few pics of my ankle from start of sprain to now. Apparently it loaded the first pic at the end, so scroll down, then up

Day 152

"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you." Isaiah 26:3

I chose this verse because I felt this peace come over me as I gave everything to God the other day. I have been wanting a boyfriend for a while (since everyone I know is getting married, it really makes me notice how alone I am) I signed up for eharmony because a friend encouraged me to. I got a "communication" from a guy, so I signed up to actually pay for it so I could communicate with him. Then I saw another guys profile that would match me better, and I sent a communication, and was impatient while waiting for him to respond(still has not). I was feeling kind of depressed, then I read my diary, and there were so many spots where I just gave everything to God, and put all my trust in Him. I decided to do that again, and said if it was His will, not mine, and just surrendered. I felt a peace come over me that I have never felt before. I saw this verse this morning, and it was just right.

Friday, August 27, 2010

Day 151

"For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly.". Proverbs 5:23

I chose this verse because I have seen what can happen with no discipline. Without it, we do things that make us look dumb, endanger ourselves and others, and bring ourselves down.

Still no Internet stick..mid next week they said

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Day 150

"Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." Psalm 34:14

Once again it is a short one, Internet stick not working.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Day 149

"Go and sin no more" John 8:11

I chose this one because it is short, as I have to use my iPhone (my Internet stick is having issues)

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Day 148

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14

I was thinking the other day, while getting X-ray's, how complex we are. We have so many bones, and if even one is our of place or injured our whole system is either out of whack, or fights to be able to make do. That does not just randomly happen. Don't have the results of the X-ray yet...prob just a really bad sprain.

Monday, August 23, 2010

Day 147

"Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold,for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her." Proverbs 8:10-11

I chose this verse because I seem to be on a rant about rich people...I swear it is not intentional. It is better to have brains than money.

Might be going for the X-ray, need to see if they can fit me in after 1 (cause I work at AW till 12:30

The swelling is starting to go up, but I think that is cause I have not been wearing any support for it except when I am working...

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Day 146

"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for you to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit your very self?" Luke 9:24-25

I chose this verse because if you look at the wealthiest people in the world, the majority of them are not truly happy, and have lost a part of themselves to get to where they are.

I went to the doctor. He said that he was 90% sure it was a sprain, but was sending me for X-rays just to be sure that I did not crack or chip it. He said that even if it is just a sprain, the swelling can stay for six months.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Day 145

"Blessed are those who haven't seen me, and believe anyway." John 20:29

I chose this one because we were talking about faith without proof, and the movie "the Body" in Bible study the other day, and then I opened up my devotion book, and this was the verse.

Today I am taking Coco to see Nanny Mcphee 2. Then I am debating going to the walk in clinic about my ankle. It only hurts when I move it in a certain direction, but it has been more than a week and there is still some swelling. Anyone have any ideas? Should I go, or give it more time..Comment by 2:30 my time (5:30 Ontario time)

Friday, August 20, 2010

Day 144

"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures,He leads me beside quiet waters" Psalm 23:1-2

I chose this verse because I like the idea of being in green pastures, beside quiet waters. With three jobs, sometimes I get too busy to "stop and smell the roses" and sometimes God makes sure we do that. My sprained ankle has been His way of making me rest.

Nora is going away tonight,so I am taking Coco to the movies tomorrow, then I pretty much have the kids all week (other than day camp and day care)

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Day 143

"When I called you answered me, you greatly emboldened me." Psalm 138:3

I chose this verse because whenever I am scared or shy, or just need help, I call on God (when I am scared I usually sing God is bigger than the boogy man) and I usually feel a peace come over me, knowing that whatever happens, God is there with me.

I only have the kids for work today...I think I will clean the house, clean my room, work on Cassidy (I have not done anything on it for a while) maybe have a nap...I will be free from 8:30 to 4:00...

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Day 142

"Fathers do not aggravate your children or they will become discouraged." Colossians 3:21

I chose this verse because everyone always uses the "children obey your parents" verse, but no one ever stresses the verses about how parents are to act towards their children.

I have a five hour shift at AW today, which is good, but I don't know if I can stand for that long on my ankle. it is mostly better, but.... I think I will have to take frequent breaks. I have a shorter shift on Friday, and it would have been better if I could have the shorter shift today. Hopefully i will be allowed a break every hour or so to ice it.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Day 141

"He then gave an order: "Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other." The woman whose son was alive was filled with compassion for her son and said to the king, "Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don't kill him!" But the other said, "Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!" 1 Kings 3:25-26

I chose this verse because it shows the difference of a good and a bad mother. it also shows a wise king.

My ankle is starting to do better, I can almost walk normal again, it is is starting to have bruising, and the swelling is starting to go down. I was debating going to the hospital today to double check that it was just a sprain, but I don't think that is necessary cause it is feeling better, and now looks like all the pics of sprains I found. I will be spending another day in bed with my foot up, icing it and watching The Beverly Hillbillies

Monday, August 16, 2010

Day 140

" But the LORD said, "You have been concerned about this vine, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, and many cattle as well. Should I not be concerned about that great city?"

I chose this verse because you never find out what happens to Jonah after he saves the city of Nineveh. He did not want the people to be saved, he wanted them to be destroyed, and in the end that could have destroyed his soul.

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Day 139

"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Matthew 18:22

I chose this verse because I was thinking of few of us will forgive someone even one time. We need to start forgiving, as we have already been forgiven all of our sins.

I saw "The Expendables" Last night. Went to the theater by myself. It was good. Like Rambo meets The A Team.

This morning I was woken up by DDDDDDD Dora. I hate having no soundproofing and loud TV's I can hear both the TV's as if they were in my room...

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Day 138

"Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds" Hosea 6:1

I chose this verse because I opened the bible to this page, and found once again, that God always finds the right verse for us...I sprained my ankle yesterday, and the verse I find today is about Him heeling us...

Friday, August 13, 2010


"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:12-13

I chose this verse just because I like it, and can feel the truth in it.

Happy Birthday Connor

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Day 136

"Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires." Song of Songs 8:4

I picked this one for several reasons. First, Song of Songs is not usually quotes because most of it is about making love...Second, I have been feeling for a while that I need a boyfriend (I think it is because everyone I know is having kids, or getting engaged) and this verse really speaks to me, and tells me to be patient.

Today I am working at AW (an hour shorter of a shift than was first supposed to) We not only have a new manager, but we actually have a supervisor now (I guess they decided not to make me one after all... something about not closing enough)I think I have lost my Sunday shift (used to be my big shift) but I think they are giving it to the supervisor so she can do the bank deposits...I need the next Sunday off anyway, as Nora is away, but I will not be happy if I loose my big shift. On the bright side, I may be getting more dog walking hours as one of the girls left...

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Day 135

"We hear all these people speaking about God's wonders in our own languages!" Acts 2:11

I chose this verse because it was in my devotions last night, and something about it spoke to me. As English speaking Christians, we have always expected others to learn our language to read the bible. Instead of making thousands learn our language, why not have 1 learn theirs so they can praise in their own language? I hope this makes as much sense here as it does in my head.

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Day 134

"Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy." Psalm 126:5

I chose this verse because I feel that there are many out there who are "sowing" and they feel pain, aggravation, it feels like nothing will come of what they are doing, but we will see the end result one day, and then it will all be worth it.

I was watching Flicka 2 last night, and it made me miss horses, and galloping across a mountain area. I miss riding and horses, and animals so much, I don't know how much longer I can last here, even though I do love it here in some ways, horses are in my blood, I need them to live.

Monday, August 9, 2010

Day 133

"Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8

I chose this verse because it shows the power of love. Love can bring us to our knees and weaken us, but it can also lift us up...

Back to normal this week..
Mon-Dog walking
Tues- Maybe Dog walking
Wed- AW
Thurs- AW
Sat- Off

I hope the new manager gives me my weekend hours...I need them

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Day 132

"Neither I nor my brothers nor my men nor the guards with me took off our clothes; each had his weapon, even when he went for water." Nehemiah 4:23

I chose this verse because I was thinking of how blessed we are that we do not have to fear for our lives while we are doing the little things, such as sleeping or gathering water.

Today I am going to church, then working at AW. I am not sure of my schedule next week, but hopefully I will be doing more dog walking than AW.

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Day 131

"The same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

I chose this verse because God always take care of me. When AW cut hours, and my budget was getting a little tight, I got a raise from my other job. It shows in the small things, how he takes care of us. He will never let go.

Today I have the kids from 7-10 (I told them I would make muffins for breakfast, which led to me getting them for a while...) then Adrian is taking them to pick Nora up from the airport.

I will be glad to get back to my normal week next week...
I have some pics to put up that I might put up today, and might not get to it for a few days.

Yesterday, Adrian, Julian and I were sitting on the porch, and for several minutes, could hear a weird noise. I assumed it was the neighbors, but then looked over the porch railing. There was a mom raccoon and three babies. Then I could hear scratching and looked down further, and there was another one, trying to get out from under the porch. It was broad daylight, and there were three people in plain sight, and they still came into the yard...

I miss animals...

Friday, August 6, 2010

Day 130

"Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord." Psalm 27:24

I chose this one because sometimes it is hard to have patience and wait. I have been out looking for a new part time job because AW is not giving me hours, or a raise, and they are treating everyone there awful. I just found out out that we are getting a new manager. There is no way anyone can be worse than the one we have now, so maybe God was just teaching me patience, saying wait and I will give you a better way than what you are doing now. I did not trust Him, but now I can see that He is working to help me.

Last day of having to watch the two year old for full days... It is not too bad, he is a good kid, it just gets kind of boring, then you have to think of things a two year old can do, then he screams cause he knows his dad is in the next room, so does not want to have a nap...

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Day 129

"I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and do god while they live." Ecclesiastes 3:12

I chose this verse because there is so much truth in it. If you have ever volunteered, sponsored, donated...you know how it feels. There is nothing better than the feeling of knowing that you have done something that will help someone.

I saw an add in the newspaper for Kuvasz puppies...made me want one again. Our Kuvasz was hands down, the best dog we had. Anyone else interested? I can put up the number...they are bear tested...

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Day 128

"Make level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed." Revelation 12:13

I chose this verse because it reminded me of a friend who had had a bad fall, that injured her knee. We went hiking a few times, and she fell often, almost re injuring her knee permanently.

I saw Inception the other night...it was interesting, definitely not my type of movie.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Day 127

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

I chose this verse because I like the idea that God is knocking, and all we have to do is answer.

Nora is in Mexico this week, and there is no daycare, so I have Julian all day...we are going to do a lot of walks, nap time, walking through the mall (he loves going to malls), maybe the water park...

On another note, I really miss having a dog, and wish I could have one here. I was looking at the BC SPCA page, and there are sooo many that need a home....

Monday, August 2, 2010

Day 126 and Zip Lining

"Not by works but by him who calls—she was told, "The older will serve the younger." Romans 9:12

No particular reason for choosing this one.

We are getting a new manager at AW (or so I was told by one of the other girls) I may not need to look for a new job if the new manager is good, and gives me the hours I need.

Zip lining was so fun. I want to do it again. We did the Bear tour at Whistler. It is the more scenic, calmer one. There is also the Eagle tour which is a bit more hard core, but the times did not work out for us. They both have five lines. They are in the process of making a mammoth tour, which will be all ten lines. I want Alec and Connor to come visit me, and we can go up and do that tour. It was real nice as we go across a river a few times. I took a really good video using Amanda's camera (as we had each others camera's for a line so we could get a vid of ourselves on our own camera. So that one will have to wait until she gets back from Whistler.

I tried to upload a vid of me zipping, but it was taking too long (like fifteen mins)

Sunday, August 1, 2010

Day 125

"You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious." Ezekiel 2:7

I chose this verse because it was part of my devotions last night, and I do not have time to look for one today as I am driving to Whistler to go zip lining.
