update: summer road trip

as i posted here, i wanted to go on a road trip with my mom this summer. well, half of that statement has occurred: i went on a road trip, just not with mom!!!!

i went for a road trip with my friend and her three kids, driving across canada, for a month! it was a blast, you can read more here.

now, i still have to go on a road trip with MOM...... mom, you hear this? we gotta go on a road trip!!!!!! lol.

sing a song in church

done it. "ride the waves". once in my home church, once at a ladies retreat, and once in a church on the other side of the country. ta da! :P

the last one was pretty amazing how it came about: on my month-long cross-canada trip with a friend, we went to a cute little church that reminded us a fair bit of our home church.... after the service, my friend was yakkin' with the pastor and his wife, and they invited me to play the song for them right then and there! about half of their small congretation was still there (and i mean small, about 10 people~!), and they set me up with their amped guitar, and fitted the clip-to-yer-head microphone around my dreddies (talk about tight!) and i was off.... and they worshipped along and one lady flagged, too.

it was humbling to see that even in my unprepared state God could use me like that. to me it was a wretched playing/singing job on my part, but it seemed to really bless them.

beforehand, i said to one lady that i hated "performing"... she said you better get used to it becuase you're going to be doing it! prophetic, that i know. i said, "yah, i know, but i still hate it!!!" lol. meaning that i hate attention to ME when playing my God-songs, i'm too self conscious, it should all be about God. if i could be behind a curtain and play, i'd be happy? dunno! lol.

In the Good Ol' Summertime...

oh, man, my dream for this summer is to go on that ROAD TRIP WITH MOM.

if you know me personally, you probably know that mom has been diagnosed with advanced terminal lung cancer, no treatment pending. well, mom has been doing GREAT, not getting any worse the last several months. i believe God is going to heal her in the same way He has brought so much healing into our relationship. but whatever happens, i totally want to go on a road trip with mom. i got my license this year, and would love to hit the open road with my dear momma.

if there's one thing i want to happen this summer - God willing - is this road trip. Lord, it is in Your hands.


i think i totally managed to overwhelm myself! i have not been able to bear looking at this list for several days, until God lifted the weight i put on myself. i ALWAYS do that - make plans and weigh myself down, and then fail....

i have made progress in one area, tho - i'm totally learning web design and loving it. so that is possible steps forward to having my own little biz and making some extra mun. we'll see - it's all up to God!

ok, what's with the keychains on my list?

it's simple. i want a banana keychain becuase i was given a 'bananas anointing' last summer, and i want a snoopy keychain because my pastor told me i have a 'snoopy anointing' a long, long time ago.... that's why!

Get it? no? ok, i'll break it down.... bananas becuase i go bananas in worship for Jesus, i'm banana's for Jesus, period... and snoopy, because i whirly and twirly like snoopy does on his house when he's happy.

Get it? Got it! Good.

Clover's 101 - An Experiment in Motivation

ok, i'm like everyone else in the world... i have dreams, places i want to go, things i want to do, etc etc etc.

i'm just not the most terribly motivated person. i figure, yeah, i gots a dream, if it's God's will, it will come about. and i sit. and i wait. and i dunno if that's the best way to go about it, y'know?

SO.... today i came across this blog: Triplux :: 101 Things in 1001 Days. .....and i thought, i'll give it a go. i guess you could say it inspired me! (obviously!) :-D

how far i go in this experiment is totally up to God, whether i do something or not depends on what i hear from Him. if i hear that a certain goal is a no-go, i'll change it to something else.

i'll go on the premise of that ol' D.C. Talk song: it's my will, and i'm not moving. cuz if it's Your will, then nothing can shake me.... except Him, of course! ;-)

i'm not going to try to come up with the whole 101 right now, but i will add as i come up with things. ciao for now!
