Beth AND Stacy

Ok, I have come to the realization that you two are either the only two people who love me, or the only two people who know I have a blog. HE HE. but thanks for caring enough to read my boreing ramblings and post comments so I know you care. How sweet! I love you Stacy, and I loke you Beth! This weekend was not long enough. Friday night Eugene was in West Virginia playing a show, while I was home alone. You would think that since he was gone all summer I would be used to sleeping alone, but there was soemthing weird and different about Friday night. I was really excited to sleep alone, and spread out over the whole bed; then to be able to sleep in Oh it was going to be great. So at about 10, I went back to the bedroom and started reading "Live Like A Jesus Freak" well, there were weird noises, and dogs kept barking- I live in a trailer park in the middle of no where, it's kinda creepy. So, after about an hour of reading, I decided I would try to go to sleep. So I turned off the light and fluffed my pillow. I decided I was a little creeped out, so I started praying as usual. After about 30 minutes of praying I was almost asleep when something woke me up. I opened my eyes and just happened to be looking down the hall. Well, I noticed that on the wall in the hall there was a weird bluish light, kinda swirly- with different shades of blue. I immediatly thought my eyes were being weird so I rubbed them, blinked and looked again. it was still there. So I started thinking about what window a light could be shinning in to make the light on the wall. There was none. So I thought- this is weird..... Next, I did the only thing I could think to do when weird things happen I said "JESUS!!!! JESUS!!!!!JESUS!!!!" before I got the first one out, the light went away. So.... that was weird. I decided to get up and put on Praise and Worship music. Well Eugene for some reason had all my CD's in his car, leaving me with his heavy music... fortunatly I found Third Day Offerings II and figured that would work. Well, it was about 12:00 now, and I still couldnt sleep. I was laying there praying and I started thinking "What if I just missed the rapture!!!" I dont know if you've ever had one of those moments where you're all alone and you just thinking out of the clear blue that Jesus has come and taken everyone away and for some reason you're still here. I have them on rare occasions. It didnt help that I couldnt get ahold of Eugene- he wouldnt answer his phone. Finally after about 30 minutes of that I realized it was a silly conclusion and couldnt have happened and it helped that Eugene called. So.... I decided to try the sleep thing once more seeing that it was now 1:00am. So I'm lying in my bed.... and my furniture starts creaping... I just stop and say "HEY CUT THAT OUT" and get back to my sleeping cuz I know that God is bigger and He's watching over me.... oh sorry.... Veggie Tales "God is Bigger than the Boogie Man..." anyway...... I'm lying in my bed, and I still can't sleep!!!! So I've been praying now for almost 2 hours straight, I decided I'll read my Bible. I open it up to Psalm 23, 24 and 25 and read. then I put my Bible OPEN on the bed right next to my head, and BAM, I'm asleep. it was so weird.
So Saturday morning I woke up at 8:30 I decided I would finish cleaning out the spare room cuz my sister-in-law, April and her husband and daughter are coming to visit this Friday, and our spare bedroom was the place where we threw everything that we didnt need when we moved in. It still had boxes of things that weren't put away. So I got that done, and went for a run, then showered, then went to Walmart, then did the dishes then Eugene came home. Then we went and cleaned the church. Hmmm.... I think that's it. No we did something else, cuz we were up late.... Oh I know, we had to practice the skit for KidStuf (our church's Sunday School program, we're both Characters in it.) Then Sunday Morning we had to wake up at 6:30, cuz he has Praise Team Practice at 7:30, at 8:30 we have a KidStuf meeting, and at 9:00 KidStuf starts. After church we went home and watched "Diary of a Mad Black Woman." it was funny, I liked it. Then we went back to church, Eugene's band Believe (www.believeministry.com) played a show at our church during the Youth service. It was kinda funny cuz their band is heavy, and our church is a bunch of preppy people. But that's ok, they did great. Then we had to go to Chattanooga to unload all the band equipment. It was another late night. When 6:15 came this morning, I could NOT get myself out of bed.... ugh. Hopefully tonight I will be in bed and asleep by 10:15. That is my goal. I would make it earlier, but I have Woman's Bible Study tonight. Life is busy!!!

Well I must say that is probably the longest blog you've ever written! But I liked it! I totally know what you mean though about being alone and getting strange thoughts like that...I have actually thought the exact same thing 2 or 3 times before! I guess maybe that's more common than we think. I had never really thought about that happening to anyone else before, but that's probably just Satan trying to sow seeds of doubt. Yeah, that sounds like him.
P.S. This is probably the longest comment I've written too! :)

P.P.S. Did you really post that at 5:28 AM?? I thought you only got online at the library or work, so therefore I must assume that you were at 1 of those 2 places at that ungodly hour!! :0 (That is an astonished face.) :)

hehe, my word identification word is fojybplb. say it with me. fojybplb. And I've so been there with you - freaking out because you're alone and so unprotected and vulnerable. I'll have to try the "JESUS JESUS JESUS" move next time. Although, it may scare Olivia...
