4 Days!

Don't worry. I never wear shorts that short when I run! Doesn't she look uncomfortable? I wanted to let you readers know (for accountability purposes only) that I will be training for the San Antonio marathon that will be held on November 15th. This time my goal is to get my time under 5 hours. The training starts up the first week in May so I have started working out again and am motivated. This is my 4th day in a row that I have worked out. I went to a body pump weight lifting class on Sunday in New Braunfels with my friend Andrea and it kicked my butt. Monday I went running for 20 minutes. Tuesday I went to pilates at Addy's house. Wednesday (today) I ran/walked for 35 minutes. Tomorrow is pilates. Friday is running and pilates all of you who think you might want to run a marathon you are more than welcome to join me. Our first long run will be on Saturday May 2nd and will consist of running 10 minutes/2 minutes walking and then repeat. That's it! Then we will slowly work up to that marathon! Come on! Give me a taker...anybody?


There are things that I do every single day that I am not proud of. 
There are things I do every single day that waste time and have no value what so ever. 
My prayer is that EVERYDAY I live for God. That I would follow after Him every single day. 
What to say, Lord? It's You who gave me life and I Can't explain just how Much You mean to me now That You have saved me, Lord I give all that I am to You That everyday I could Be a light that shines Your name  Everyday, Lord, I'll Learn to stand upon Your word And I pray that I I might come to know You more That You would guide me in every single step I take, that Everyday I can Be Your light unto the world  Everyday, it's You I live for Everyday, I'll follow after You Everyday, I'll walk with You, my Lord  Everyday, Lord, I'll Learn to stand upon Your word And I pray that I I might come to know You more That You would guide me in every single step I take, that Everyday I can Be Your light unto the world  Everyday, it's You I live for Everyday, I'll follow after You Everyday, I'll walk with You, my Lord  It's You I live for, everyday It's You I live for, everyday It's You I live for, everyday It's You I live for, everyday  Everyday, it's You I live for Everyday, I'll follow after You Everyday, I'll walk with You, my Lord  Everyday, it's You I live for Everyday, I'll follow after You Everyday, I'll walk with You, my Lord

Jesus You endured my pain
Savior You bore all my shame
All because of Your love
All because of Your love
Maker of the universe 
Broken for the sins of the earth 
All because of Your love
All because of Your love 

Because of Your cross my debt is paid
Because of Your blood my sins are washed away 
Now all of my life, I freely give 
Because of Your love, 
Because of Your love I live

 Innocence and holy king 
You died to set the captain free 
All because of Your love 
Lord you gave Your life for me
I will give my life to You 

All because of Your love 

You did it for me,You did it for Love
Its Your victory, Jesus You are enough
You did it for me, You did it for love
Its Your victory, Jesus You are enough

The Lord has been spending some time with me. He's called me to His word with a new passion and thirst. I haven't blogged much of substance lately because of trying to process all I am learning. It all started on Easter Sunday. Kyle and I visited my old church in New Braunfels called Oakwood Baptist Church with my mom and I heard the most profound/simple/no brainer-why didn't I think of that sermon I have ever heard. I am walking in a new found freedom that began with the completion of that marathon in February. I have been trying to figure out how to write about the sermon that I heard on Easter Sunday but I have decided that Pastor Ray Still said it like I could never phrase in my little blog. I urge each of you to take 30 minutes by yourself and listen to the sermon that is posted on their website from Easter. Click on this link CAVES and listen. Bottom line: God does some of His best work in caves. Caves are typically dark and places where I can imagine one might feel really lonely if in them alone. Pastor Ray asked the congregation to think about some caves that we have been in in our lives. I immediately thought of the 5 year cave that I have just emerged from. The one I have been in from the time that I found out my parents were getting divorced in the summer of 2003. The one that left me depressed, insecure, needy, rebellious, and darn right down and angry. The cave changed me in so many ways and many of them I thought were for the worst. He preached about David and the caves he hid in throughout 1 Samuel. I could feel the tears welling up. I could feel my spirit shaking. It hit me before Pastor Ray could even say the words. "He lived. He died. He said in 3 days He would rise." THOSE 3 DAYS WHERE WAS JESUS???? a cave. "YOU DID...YOU'RE ALIVE!!!!" Praise Him!!! God does His best work in caves. He rose Jesus from the dead for our sins and now He sits at the right hand of The Father in Heaven and He intercedes for us!!! I am thankful for the caves in my life. I am thankful that God draws us closer to Him through brokenness and also for JOY! You see! There are caves of Joy and Harvest too. They are coming and have arrived and that is the hope that I cling to! I know somebody wants to shout glory!!!

Father God we praise You because You are mighty to save. We praise You because You know how it all ends. We praise You because when we have heartache You know what You are doing. We praise You because we have joy because of the hope only You can bring. I am so thankful for how You move and speak and heal. I love You. 

Just listen to the sermon. Its way better than this blog...

Kyle and I made a trip to Hico, TX to have dinner with Christina and Michael and to show Michael more information on our business. We had a great time of fellowship and fun! Here are a few highlights of the trip:
I don't remember the name of this store but this is the second floor of it. It is an antique store on the first floor and a restaurant/relaxing sitting area on the second floor. I LOVED the feel of this historic place and would love to make a trip to shop on a Saturday. That door in the far back left is where Michael has his office for his website business. WHAT a joy to have an office in a quaint place like this! I. LOVED.IT!!!

On our way out we stopped at a gas station and to our surprise we found DUBLIN DR. PEPPER with the fountain drinks! That's how close we were! I don't even drink soda but I indulged in one of these and it was amazing!
One of my favorite things about what Kyle and I get to do is all of the places we are able to see. I don't know if I would have ever found this little joy of Hico, TX but I think I almost convinced Kyle that we could move there after only spending 3.5 hours in the place. I am most definitely a country girl. On our way back to the city lights of Austin it was great to be able to enjoy every star in the sky on our 3 hour drive! What an amazing time!

I Thank You

Kyle is a wonderful man. He is hardworking, honest, handsome, funny, and oh so brave! I have gotten to know my husband so much more over the past year. We have lots of inside jokes now and laugh more than ever before. One of my favorite things about us is that we sing at the top of our lungs in the car and we don't care how we sound. Just recently Kyle bought the new Keith Urban CD. It is fabulous! We have already memorized many of the songs :) Last night Kyle grabbed my hand as we sang the words to "Thank You" found on that CD. I love Kyle more with every passing day! We both relate to this song so much!

There were nights when I was sure I wouldn't see the morning sun
and there were days that seemed so dark, I couldn't wait for night to come
I couldn't stand to think about how my life used to be
and how without a single warning, it all slipped away from me

Like a fool I thought that I could fight the shadows on my own
to the dark I was no stranger this was stronger than id known
and by the time I knew that I was in too deep id gone too far
and the light that used to guide me, had faded from my  heart

and I found myself in places I thought id never go
surrounded by faces I was so far from home
and I don't know how you found me, 
all I know is I owe everything to you...yes I do

and I thank you for my heart, I thank you for my life,
and I thank God for grace and mercy, and that you became my wife
I'm seeing for the first time, the stars, the sun and moon,
but they've got nothing on the power of this love I have for you,
and I thank you, I thank you

Now people say they'll stand beside you, they swear they'll never leave
and when the rain started falling, you know it only fell on me
and it was hard to keep believing in myself was so much pain and guilt and shame 
I couldn't even ask for help,
I don't know if I believe in other lives but when you came, there was something so familiar bout the way you said my name,
and the whole world started turning, and I swear that I'd been born again brand new..and its all because of you. 


And Ive seen so many things, that I just cant explain
but the miracle of miracles is how with your love I was saved
