Itouch Apps?

I haven't been feeling well the last two days. In fact on Monday I left work early and I didn't even go today.. It feels odd being home because I never call in. Ihave had some weird stomach stuff going on. Just extreme nausea. Horrible. Ugh. While I am feeling better.. I am not 100% but I so have to go to work tomorrow.
When I wasn't trying to lay very very still. I was on my itouch perusing my favorite apps. I was catching up on all the twitter updates when I came across this on.. Twitpic. It cracked me up. He swears he didn't know what shirt he was putting on.. because it was 4 in the morning.. I was wondering.. if its a concern, why do you have the shirt in the first place.. Silly Boy!
Speaking of Itouch/Iphone Apps. Which are your favorite Apps and Why?

What a Difference a Day Makes.

I woke up Saturday morning to a cold dreary day. The weather forecast had been made but I had to see it for myself to believe it. It was the end of March and it was snowing. Just the day before, I had taken my class out on the playground. I had worn capris. Then Saturday I stood on my porch freezing, as I watched the wet white snow fall to the ground.

Sunday morning I woke up to the sun peeking into my window. I walked outside to see the only trace of the snow was melted and running down the sides of the streets.. A passerby would assume that a spring shower had brought on the wet ground. On the way home from church, I noticed the budding trees and the brown grass turning to green. I thought to myself, Wow! What a difference a day makes.

Spiritually speaking isn't this how it is in our own lives? How many of us have woken up to a bad day, bad news, temptations, or trials? I know I often find myself thinking- Oh, No! I must get used to this. This is what I have to live with. This is my lot in life. (I know dramatic huh? - but Oh, so true.) We often get stuck in grey dreary days because we accept it instead of relying on God to bring on a new day. A day where the clouds are gone. A day where the old is made new. A day where the remnants of the past are being washed away.  

Just seeing that tree today after the snow yesterday made me think about that.. and how I often allow myself to stay stuck in situations..but today I am making a vow to myself,  to always hang on.. For tomorrow is a new day. One full of the blessings of GOD!

Hmm, What does one say after a 3 month unannounced hiatus? Yeah, I've got nothing. I have missed blogging and visiting your blogs so much-but I don't really have an excuse other than I got really busy and at the end of the day...blogging my thoughts and daily adventures were not a priority. Now things have calmed down a little and I have really been wanting an outlet.. I have made a promise to myself though! Yeah- Um, I do that. I promise not to let myself stress if I don't have anything witty to say. I promise to not beat myself up if I miss a day or two.. And my promise to you all is that I will be a more faithful blogging buddy!

It's nice to be back! I hope some of you still remember who I am.. and I hope this out of no where post doesn't knock the breath out of some of you from the shock of it...lol.

Happy Friday Friends-
