Is it Spring yet?

I am so ready for Spring: the warmth, the flowers, the beauty, sun sets later. And Easter! I love Easter! Not only for the pastel colored eggs or the pastel clothing, but Jesus died on the cross for us! :)

I love this song, "Jesus Paid It All" it always brings me to a place of worship. I've actually been listening to Christian music while on the Daniel Fast. There was a couple of days that I did start listening to secular music again.. and I felt so brought down and negative. Listening to Christian music anytime I turn on music really makes a difference. I feel more intune spiritually and getting closer to God. I just love praise and worship :)

I have a prayer request, my pastor just recently had the shingles disease, which he has recovered from. But now he has found out that he has cancer. His name is David Brooks and I really think that all of these things are attacks from the devil. He has such a vision and love for God. Please pray for him, I would appreciate it so much!

I have learned an important lesson while chasing after God. I am beautifully and wonderfully made. I have never loved myself so much as I do right now. I feel so blessed and thankful. At the end of the day I have a wonderful God who thinks I'm beautiful, He loves me for me, that's all I could ever ask for.

2013, I'm taken and I'm in love. I'm making a relationship with God. 

I know I've complained much in the past... but I think I'm a light in these peoples life. She's actually told me that she has cussed less because I'm here. I try to always be the positive uplifting one. :)

I'm on a church hunt! I'm going to try and find an Assemblies of God... because that's what my church is at home? Again, I just love the praise and worship.. haha! But we shall see! No one is on call this weekend so I'll be able to go to church! :) I might try a local church first, there are a couple close by.

The weekend we come back is Katsucon! EEEEEEEE! It looks like a yes, I just have to see what Jon's schedule is, but I'ma probably go! I'm so excited! I totally want to meet Amon/Steve Blum! I want to fix a couple of things on my Asami cosplay and possibly make a glove! :) I wish I could have someone go with me XP But ces la vie. lol

My devotional's Bible verse(s) is:

"Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." - Isaiah 43:7

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." - 1 Corinthians 10:31

So guys today, whether you're at work or eating french fries or brushing your hair... how can you glorify Him?

I love you all so much! :)))))) I can't wait to see all of you! I'll be in Piedmont in 11 days! You're all in my heart and prayers!
