Pumpkin Carving and "funny feelings"

Last night David and I partook in some hard core pumpkin carving so we'd have jack-o-lanterns for the Trick or Treaters tonight. I hadn't carved a pumpkin in many many years so this was def an intense experience for me.

On another note, my Cat Boots who I've had since I was like 8 or 9 years old (I'm 26 now) isn't doing so well. Mom and I found a place on the side of his cheek yesterday that looked like an absess that had popped. Mom thinks he is slowly starting to die. The whole thing just leaves these funny feelings in my belly that make me feel sick and sad at the same time. I don't care how silly you may think I am but last night I prayed for Boots. I just don't want him to be in any pain or have to suffer. EH.

I guess I'll go work on IEP progress reports to get my mind off it all.
Happy Halloween lovies!

YOu can vote however you like

new tumblr

New blog/tumblr that is for me and David and our journey through engagement and eventually marriage.

You should check it out:)

feeling productive!

Today was a great start to Fall Break.
I woke up early (not that I wanted to) to meet David so we could go check out a church/family life center as a possible wedding venue. Parts of it I was like "yeah God this is what's up" others I was like "God you gotta work ALL of the small details out as well." We prayed before we went so I'm trusting God is going to help us out.

I wrote out my 30 day prior notice to my apartment letting them know once my lease is up in December I will not be renewing. Gotta get out of the apartment life period. It's like a vaccuum you get sucked into and getting out is a lot harder than you would think. Still waiting on the next steps to be fine tuned but again I'm trusting God with that as well.

I called PEAK fitness to find out what I needed to do to cancel my membership. They directed me to ABC financial and hopefully the ball will get rolling and that junk will process and be DONE in 30 days.

I also called FITNESS 2000 to inquire about their membership prices (it will be closer to where I am moving and David has a membership there) I need motivation and accountability and David and his whole family go there. I go Saturday to set something up.

I went to visit all my CMCC daycare babies and take pictures for mom of the Halloween parade. They were all precious.

I love feeling productive and accomplished. It's hard to get things done during the school day (make phone calls, inquire, etc). AND My apartment is clean (thanks to my motivation last night).

I think I'll go treat myself to a nice nap now:)

The View from Up here..

Today I spent 6 hours on the 19th floor of the BB&T building downtown in the Piedmont club for a training. Upon entering the elevator I immediately felt like the minority. I was surrounded by mostly tall men (there was one woman) dressed up in business suits looking very professional and banker like. I was slinking in the back feeling very teacher'ish and out of place. The first thing I did when I got off the elevator to the 19th floor was gravitate towards the windows which gave me the entire view of Winston Salem. My initial thought was woah I'm up real high...and my second thought was this is so gorgeous.

Throughout the workshop as my ADHD kicked in and I found myself gazing outside the window trying to look for Clemmons, the Lord began to speak to me. I began to think of all the people in the various buildings, streets, businesses, schools, shopping centers that surrounded me. I couldn't help but wonder how their day was going and if they were feeling God's love. From where I was positioned I could see parts of Winston Salem that I normally wouldn't be able to see from the ground level. I had a different perspective. And I was reminded that God's perspective and ways are higher than mine, and that He can see the BIG picture..He sees things that I cannot see because my view is limited.

Isaiah 55:9 (New International Version)
9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Which gives me all the reason to throw myself at His feet and trust Him. I feel the Lord wants us to be encouraged and reminded that His plans and purposes for our lives are to give us HOPE and a FUTURE. He can see the larger it's time we start trusting Him with areas of our lives that we may be struggling with. God sees our wants and needs. He is very well aware. He has not forgotten about you, your family, your job, your relationships, etc.

I also felt God saying it's time we start to get a Godly perspective on some things/areas instead of letting the world influence our perspective. I feel this is especially true with Election day coming up in November.

Green notebook

I keep forgetting to bring my green notebook in from the car. My green notebook is where I scribble and write teachings, words, visions from the Lord during The Well. There are many things the Lord has given me that I've wanted to post..but just keep forgetting. He gently reminded me while I grabbed a cup of green tea to open it up and share something on here.

Vision I saw during prayer:

During prayer I saw a building made out of glass. Behind the glass were people of all ages (men, women, children, teenagers, young adults). Many of us were across the way basking in the presence of the Lord..praising, worshipping, dancing, singing...Joy was all around us but yet here were these people contained in this glass building. They watched from behind the glass and their eyes told stories of being trapped but wanting to come out an dplay with the Lord. I saw some faces that I recognized. As I danced and played with the Lord I started praying. "Lord why won't they come out here? Why do they remain restrained and closed up from what's in front of them? They can see us Lord but why can't they get to us?"

I then asked "is this the church Lord?" and He said "No, look beside you and all around you, that is the church." So I asked again reforming the questions "So what is that building for Lord? What keeps them behind the glass looking but ONLY looking?"

..."That is religion, false teachings, the deception and lies, the poison, the resistor."

I decided to take a step or two closer. The closer I got I saw it was not a building at all but rather a single sheet of glass. There were no other walls around it. All they had to do was turn and walk around it.

Turn aside from this man made religion and walk towards the Hope of Glory.

House of Prayer

"Is it not written..My house shall be called a house of prayer for ALL nations? " (Mark 11:17)
Last night the Lord truely swept in with an overwhelming press to Pray at the Well. NOt saying that we haven't been praying prior to that moment, but something in the atmosphere was different. God was giving us the keys to unlock His heart and see what exactly He had for the evening. And so each of us began to flow and this procession of prayers continued for hours. One person would get up and pray something out, then another immediately would pick up where they left off and our prayers were penetrating the heavens last night.

I praised God for the flow for with all that is going on around us, we needed to feel Him in that way last night. At least I know that I did.

I truely believe in my heart that God is raising us back up into our posture of intercession. As the economy falls apart around us, and morality of this Nation is testing and tried, God is looking to us..the Bride to step in and do something. I read in James Goll's book : The Lost ARt of Intercession: that God quits when man quits. I don't know about any of you but I will NOT QUIT. We cannot quit. Too many things are taking place around us that demand our attention and our energy.

I dont' know if anyone else has seen the video that Lou Engle sent out (my friend Suzanne has it posted on her blogger..Go here:
But since then Lord put it strongly on my heart to pray for the state of Massachutes (woah spelling), and same sex marriages, and the fate/direction of California. This is serious business. The Father's business.

So I request that you will be in prayer with me. For our Nation, for our economy, for the elections, for the morality and state of our country,
