Siblings Day

This past Wednesday was apparently National Siblings Day.
I really haven't heard much about it other than this year, with it being a pretty major deal on Facebook.
So, I'd like to wish my sisters a Very Happy Siblings Day.
Although sometimes I wish I had a brother or two, I am very thankful for the two sisters God gave me.
Katelyn and Didley Squat (Shaelyn):
We've had our ups and downs together, but we've made it through them all. The best times I've had in life have been with you two, and I wouldn't trade any of those times for the world. You drive me crazy, but that's what makes me laugh and love you more (but don't get too carried away now). And I know you two are just as happy (if not more) to have me as the most awesome ninja sister ever. You couldn't have gotten a better sister than me, haha!
I love you to Infinity and Beyond!

That's Why I Pray Thursday

I am back with an update on me and how my life has been going these days. Last time I wrote, I was telling y'all about the trials I had been facing at the time. Well, I am now proud to announce that my life has pretty much taken a 360 since then.
First off, I am still not the richest person in the world, but my money troubles will soon start getting better, and have gotten better since.
My hours at work are still down, but I just picked up last weekend for somebody and next month it looks like I will be back to regular hours again for the most part (yay!)
Secondly, my computer. It turned out, it wasn't the screen on my computer that was broken, but something to do with the motherboard or whatever. So, I needed a whole new computer. However, the guy that was going to replace the screen gave me a great deal on a new one, and transferred all the data from my old one to my new one for free. So, I did end up spending more money than I planned, but got a whole new computer out of the deal (which I would have needed in the near future anyway).
My (Mater) car is still hanging in there, but I have been keeping my eye out for a different one because I know I will be needing one within the next few months. (So, if you guys know of any great deals at any car places out there...let me know!)
Lastly, I am officially in my last quarter of college. I just got an internship last week, and I will be starting that up this coming Monday. (Pray for me, I know I will be a nervous wreck when it rolls around.) I am also about halfway through the other 5-week class that I have.
So, I hope I'm not speaking too soon when I say that my life is pretty great right now.
But that leads me to my "That's Why I Pray Thursday".
Looking back at how much my life has changed in the last month, just makes me so much more thankful that there is a God always looking out for me and carrying me in times of trial.
I pray because, no matter what, God is always there watching out for me.
He will never leave me or forsake me.
And thank you for all of you who prayed for me in my time of trial, I could feel prayers, and they have definitely worked.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you."
-Deuteronomy 31:6
"If our God is for us, then who could ever stop us!"
