7 questions #2

So my last post was a bit depressing. Here's a lighter topic. :) Another 7 questions post.

1. Hamburger or Hotdog? (veggie versions count)

Hamburger! You can add lettuce, tomato, bacon, avocado, pickles, cheese, and other yummy stuff to it. And hotdogs are just gross.(i.m.o.)

2. If you had to live on any other planet in our solar system, besides Earth, which would you choose?
Mars 'cause I'd rather be farther from the sun than closer to it.

3. Share a photo of an outfit that represents your personal style, please. (doesn't have to be of you)
Hmm, my personal style. Let's see... Simple but pretty.

4. Would you rather get ready for the day or get ready for bed?
Get ready for bed. I just love putting my PJ's on and getting into my cozy bed.

5. You have to choose between never having eyelashes or never having eyebrows, which would you choose?
Never having eyelashes. You don't need eyelashes to make facial expressions, but you sure use your eyebrows!

6. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A wife and stay-at-home mom. :)

7. Do you set your clocks right on time, or a few minutes ahead or behind?

I like mine a few minutes ahead, but I treat them as though they are the correct time. That way I'll be more likely to get places when I need to.

tough times

I've been going through some hard things recently, with certain relationships and circumstances. For the past couple weeks, all I've wanted to do was stay at home and cry. I was tired of "putting on a happy face" whenever I went somewhere. I kept thinking, "My life is so hard right now, I just want to give up. I'm tired of being joyful when I'm hurting inside. I'm tired of pretending everything is ok when in reality I'm broken. I can't do this anymore."

Then God broke into my thoughts. "Yes, my child, life is hard. But it is because I love you. If I gave you an easy life, you would be less likely to run to me. " Then He gave me this Scripture: We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16

Jesus knows what I'm going thorough and He loves me and is always there for me. He wants me to come to Him with my problems and tell Him what's going on, even though He already knows. He wants me to talk to Him like He's my best friend, to trust Him.

My circumstances haven't changed. But God is changing my view of them. Slowly, but He is working. Praise the Lord that He never gives up on me! God always has a plan, no matter what!


On a lighter note, here's a picture of my favorite kitty. :)
