Journal Entry From 05/22/2013

Note: I haven't been on to blog in a long while, and while I am going to work on getting back to the grind of it, here is an old entry I wrote and never posted. It was from the day I was baptized. 

Wow, looking through my journal, crazy last 7 months (6 of which I didn't journal) God has done a lot of work in me. 7 months ago to this day I wrote :  "I'll pray about it, maybe my prayers will be answered. I kind of have problems, I don't believe God answers my prayers. Somedays I don't even know if there is a God anymore. I know that this is the time when I need to turn to God the most. Maybe I need to start praying more"

It took 2 months, and an awesome friend coming into my life, and sharing their story, for the wheels to start turning, but 7 months to the day later, here I am, serving an amazing God, who does exist, and loves me so much he sent his son to die for me and my sins.

Today, I was baptized!

Love and hugs,

Reminiscing of Fatter Days

Watching Louie Anderson the comedian   try to get out of the pool on "Splash" brought me back to my swim team days. That first relay when I didn't have a ladder to use to get me out of the pool and it took 2 people and me trying as hard as we could to get me out if the pool. 

 It felt like a slap in the face, I could have quit that day but I didn't. I don't know if I was ever able to get out on my own, but I do know that I kept swimming and I didn't let my weight and lack of strength stop me.

Yesterday I was at a pool party and I was able to get out of the pool on the side with out the stairs. It was an amazing feeling, but I think I'll use the stairs from now on, I have some really nice cuts on my knees from doing that!

Sometimes you start out thinking that something is impossible, and in the end you learn that it is possible! 

Love and hugs,
