"Mamma mia, here I go again"

First of all I would like to start out with how awesome God is. It is unbelievable to me sometimes the things that he does and the things that he transforms. He changes things and makes them to where you can't even tell what they were just by looking at it, yet you know exactly where it has been. Thank you Abba for you gracious and marvelous ways.

Today is gorgeous day. It is a wonderful temperature I have the doors open and the windows are up. There is a light breeze blowing and the sunshine is just pouring into the house.

So how about those elections, huh? Exciting stuff. I voted for McCain as most people I know did but he sadly did not win. I have heard so many people start to bad mouth Obama and it is rather troublesome. Obama was definitely not my first choice for president, but the fact of the matter is that he is our president-elect a
nd will become our president. I still think that he desrves respect just like I would want people you didn't like McCain had he won the election. So many people seem to be making him out to be this evil person. I watch documentaries a good bit and I have a seen a few on Obama. From what I can see he is a good father, he is a good husband, and loves this country a great deal. Now I can't stand here and debate the issues with you and I am not a political mind, but I think that he wants the best for this country, even though we may not all agree with his version of "best". As followers of Christ the only thing that tearing down Obama will do is to further divide a nation that is already torn. The best things for us to do is to pray for Obama that God will guide him in the ways he should go and that he will allow god to guide him. God allowed Obama into the office for a reason and I for one can't wait to see what God will do next. God has not lost sight and knows what is going on.

OK now that I have that off my chest I can move on to the fun stuff...
It has been about 3 weeks since I turned in my application to Converse and I am still waiting for and answer. I want to be there so bad so I just keep praying and have styled my blog appropriately :)
Life is moving on. I was hanging out with Kara and Wayne yesterday and I really started to realize how my own and the lives of those around me are changi
ng. We are all growing up some more. It feels and though we are make a merge into to the next stage. From young adult to Adult. God is requiring more from us and asking for even more commitment than ever before. I for one have fallen much deeper into the realization that He is all that I need, Truly. I don't need toys I don't need comfort I don't need food I don't need air. That realization in growing more and more everyday and I have truly begun to believe it.

The mascot for converse is the Valkyries. And for those that don't know, a Valkyrie is a female warrior, which I think is very appropriate. tehehe

Ok, so now I will leave you with a song, because it would not be a blog of mine with out it. The lyrics just really fit.

I've got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was

I believe now
I've come too far
No I can't go back
Back to how it was

Created for a place
I've never known

This is home
Now I'm finally where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching for a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was

And I got my heart set on what happens next
I got my eyes wide it's not over yet
We are miracles and we're not alone

And now after all my searching
After all my questions, I'm gonna call it home
I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see
The sunset
I'm gonna call it home

Now I know
Yeah, this is home

I've come too far
And I won't go back
Yeah, this is home
