I survived...

I've now survived week 1 of working at Hallmark. It's not too bad, although today I started getting a little confused with the whole auditing the cards thing. Meh...I'll try to figure it out on Monday when I'm NOT about to leave! I ended up with about 25 hours, so they had to send me home 3 hours early today, since I'm still just training and really shouldn't have over 25 hours! It was cool, though 'cause I went bowling with Chris, Kim, & James. I only bowled the last game with them, but I won with a score of 110! Of course, they were all really tired by that point, but I still am going to count it! Two weeks until Emileigh comes to see me! I'm soo excited!!! Ok, I had better get to bed, so I can be awake for church in the morning.

Go under the mercy!

Emileigh is coming to visit me in a little over 2 weeks!!!! I'm so excited! We've already decided that we're going to drive around in my car with the sunroof open singing with Rascal Flatts at the top of our lungs! We'll have to come up with some other things to do, since we can't do that ALL week. Well, we can do that while we're in the car, but this IS Florida and it does rain sometimes, so the sunroof can't ALWAYS be open! Anywho...that's my excitement!

Good night to all!

I'm listening to:

-This Everyday Love

So, today was my first day of work at my new job. I am now a Hallmark Sales Associate! Today was really fun too, 'cause we took down ALL of the Mother's Day cards and gifts and started putting up Father's Day cards and gifts. I'm also excited 'cause I may have a friend coming to visit me really soon and I haven't seen this friend in a long time! More details on that as we work it out! Let's see...I'm walking tonight, which is always a good time. I really don't have too much more to share. I think me getting a job is news enough!!

Go under the mercy!!!

You like really like me!

Hello world! So, I joined on Satuday and I now have 29 friends!! Coming in first place with 15 friends is Greenville College, followed by the .net with 8 friends, then we've got 2 family members, 1 friend from New World School of the Arts High School, 1 friend from church, 1 really cool band (Aireline), and Tom, the MySpace guy. If you too want to be my friend, you can always click above on 'MySpace'. Well, except those of you reading on here ya go: MySpace.

(Yes, I went crazy with the links, whatcha gonna do about it? ;-) I feel "linky" today! )

Well, today I'm off to see if I can't find someplace that wants to hire me. I'm hoping that the severe thunderstorms that we've got in the area stay out of my way! Then it's off to church for Wesley Group. I'm excited about this weekend, 'cause I'm doing fun stuff with a couple of people from our group! Well, that's all for now.

Sometimes I just want to scream really loudly. Thank goodness for walking partners like Kim (and Kelcey, the happy black lab!). It's been one of those oh so many ways. It's been good, it's been ugly. God has shown Himself to me in many places and the devil has stuck his ugly face in mine and laughed. I guess that's just how it goes. The question is whether or not to persevere. Oddly enough, I open my Book of Common Prayer and today's Epistle reading is James 1:1-15

2Consider is all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

12Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to whose who love Him.

Hello! don't need to tell me twice. But You do anyway...Luke 9:18-27 was my Gospel lesson:

25For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself?

So basically I'm being taught that the devil is going to throw all kinds of crap (or insert other wording...) at me and I can expect it because I am choosing to listen to and follow the only One that is Truth. The world didn't except Him and it's not going to except me because I don't buy into the "way of the world". Let's home that tomorrow is at least a little easier than today.

Until then, go under the mercy...
