Meeting God Halfway

Years and years ago I was at my grandparents house watching a movie, "Where the Red Fern Grows." While I don't remember much about the movie, I have slept since then, I have always remembered a quote in the movie that I have found applies to our lives today. The movie is about a young boy and his two hound dogs. However, before he can receive his two hound dogs, he has to "meet God halfway." Therefore, he gets a job and saves his money to buy his two hound dogs. The point is, two hound dogs did not just appear on his front porch; he had to work for them. Sure, God could have led a man to buy two dogs for a random little boy, or he could have caused two hound dogs to find their way to this boy's front yard, but instead he chooses to teach this boy what it is to work for what you want rather than just being handed what you desire. A simple lesson with profound meaning.

As I go throughout my life, and I find myself asking God for different things, I always remind myself that "I have to meet God halfway." Maybe I am asking for a new job, or maybe I am asking for the money to go back to school, or maybe I am asking God for my husband. Whatever the request may be, I have to meet God halfway. I have to submit my resume and get out there and look for that new job. I have to apply to that school and fill out all of the required applications for the money to go back to school. Or maybe I just have to put myself out there and meet people, and then God will put my future husband in my path and TADA! He has granted my request. The point is, while He surely can, He doesn't just make things happen. We have to put forth a little effort too. So, I encourage you to reflect on what it is that you are asking God for. A new job? A new car? A friend? Whatever it is, are you meeting God halfway?

My "Big Girl" Job

As you may or may not already know, I work at a bakery as a cake decorator. I started working there for 2 reasons: I wanted to learn to decorate cakes and I needed something to fill the time after I moved here. It has been a good job and I have met some really nice people, but I think the time has come for me to move on. I am really ready for my "big girl" job, and I am in the beginning stages of job hunting. I did have an interview the other day with Walton Communities. This is a chain of apartment complexes that are locally owned and very nice in their own individual ways. The position I applied for is a leasing consultant. It sounds interesting enough, but the lady I interviewed with wants me to shadow one of the offices to see if it really is something I would like to pursue. She said that it was a lengthy process, so even if I do make it, it could take a while. I am honestly looking forward to this change. I want to do something that doesn't require me to wear a uniform, but instead requires me to look nice. Please keep me in your prayers as I continue on this journey for the next big thing.

What's A Little Change?

Change. It happens. And there is nothing you can do about it. You have no choice but to accept it. And that's easier said than done. I have never been a very big fan of change. In fact, just days ago I would have said that change is bad, but in the last 36 hours, I have learned that that is not the case. I have finally come to understand that, while change can be utterly gross, it is absolutely necessary. Change produces growth. Change builds character. Change strengthens who we are as individuals, and makes us better people. As I look back on the changes that have taken place in my life, and I remember the sadness, the fear, and the anger, I have no choice but to recognize that through it all, because of it all, I have come out better on the other side. We don't have to love change. We don't even have to like change. But we should at least take the time to appreciate change and all that it brings into our lives.

Compressed Air

So, my mom has discovered a can, and has now taken to using it on EVERYTHING! The tv screen, bookshelves, bugs on the wall....everything. If you see dust, stand back, mom is coming in with the compressed air. What the crap? I tell you what I think is fun...the steam blaster on the iron. Now, that is good times. I had to iron my shirt for church this morning and I steam blasted that thing until the water ran dry. Mom made fun of me, but let's remind ourselves that she's the one who blows bugs with compressed air. Hello! So, alas, it is the simple things in life that amuse us. Who needs Broadway when you have air in a can and steam-blasting irons? Go figure.


As some of you may know, I am a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan. I own several copies of the book, I have lots of memorobilia, and I even own the t-shirt. I am a HUGE WoO fan! So, naturally, when the Broadway show Wicked rolls into town, I am the first one in line to see it.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the storyline for Wicked, allow me to give you a brief synopsis. The musical is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire and it follows the story of the witches of Oz before Dorothy flies a house into it. It tells how Glinda the Good Witch became the good witch, and how Elphaba, the green one, became the Wicked Witch of the West. As if that weren't fascinating enough, it even delves into how the Tin Man became tin and the Scarecrow became a scarecrow. Trust me when I say that whether you read the book or see the musical, you will never look at the story of Dorothy and Toto the same!

Back to my story, I finally got to see Wicked for the first time this past Wednesday. My mom and aunt got me the ticket for my birthday and the three of us plus my sister an uncle all went and saw the magic that is Wicked. It was amazing! Glinda, previously known as "Galinda," is absolutely hilarious. She has such a bright and bubbly personality and is an absolute hoot! Elphaba, again the green one, is also funny in her own way. As you can imagine, growing up as the only green person anyone has ever seen, she has never had many friends and has, therefore, found her own way of looking at life. She has such a dry sense of humor, it was great to see her portrayed as a person versus a wicked witch. In addition, the "special effects" were amazing. There is one scene where Elphaba flies and it was both powerful and spellbinding. Another thing that I absolutely loved was how much of the movie they subtly have thrown into the dialog. It is truly remarkable how well everything from the concept of Wicked flows into the idea we have all know as the land of Oz. If you ever get the chance to see Wicked, you MUST take it! It is an unforgettable experience and I am absolutely serious that you will never look at the Wizard of Oz the same way again!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Mom and Aunt Tracy for taking me to see Wicked. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for a chance to see it again!

Day Trip with the Siblings

Yesterday I took my brother and sister to Six Flags and we had a lot of fun. Well, 2 of us did. After getting there and riding about 3 rides, my sister was not only ready to go, but also informed me that Six Flags "was not her thing." Thanks for the heads up! However, she perservered and continued to be a good sport while Luke and me rode all the rides. It had actually been a while since I had been to a Six Flags, and I was very excited to ride all of the new roller coasters they had acquired since my last visit. Fortunately, the lines to most of the rides were not very long and so we got to ride a majority of the rides with very little wait. The Batman ride is awesome! We got off and I was ready to go on it again. Same for the Mindbender. The Georgia Scorcher was another story. It was fun but if I don't ever ride it again, I think I will live. However, the lines to the Goliath and the Superman roller coasters were quite long, and so we decided to forego those until next time. We were there for about 3-4 hours and we didn't get to ride half of what we would have liked, but it was getting hot and we were tired and hungry, so we decided to call it a day and head home. Overall, it was a good day, and I am thankful that I got to spend it with my brother and sister.

New Material

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have decided that I need to find new reading material. Up until now I have read not only the same kinds of books, but also the same books. I have always stuck with Mary Higgins Clark books, and the Harry Potters, and, now, the Twilight series. However, I have been inspired to move up in the world and read something a little different. I mentioned earlier that I was going to start with the classics such as Shakespeare and Jane Austen, but I think that the first books on my new reading list will be two books by Gregory Maguire: "Wicked" and "Son of a Witch." These are the story of life in Oz before Dorothy, and then life in Oz after Dorothy. For those of you who don't know, I am a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan. I have seen the movie many times, I own many different editions of the book, and I collect memorabilia. So, when I learned about the musical and the books alike, (and I heard of them a while ago; I'm just now getting around to reading the books.) I absolutely could not wait to see the musical. So, the second week of October I will FINALLY get to see Wicked on Broadway and I am absolutely pumped! And, in order to prepare myself, I am getting ready to read the books on which the musical is based.

In addition, I was also excited to learn that Gregory Maguire has not only told the story of Oz in his own version, but he has also ventured into the land of old and written stories along the lines of Cinderella and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. So, once I am done with "Wicked" and "Son of a Witch," I think I will go on to read Maguire's own versions of these other fantastic stories. Of course, I will keep you posted!

Under the Weather

Being sick is just gross. I can't hear. I can't smell. I can't taste. I also can't breathe-which is my personal favorite-not to mention that my nose will probably fall off my face before this is all said and done. Life is just good all around for me right now while I battle this lovely head cold. However, my brother had this just the other day-that's who I got it from, the little poohead-and his only lasted 2 days, so I am hoping that that will be the case with me. I'm not really worried though, because my body has a rockin immune system and it usually knocks out these kinds of illnesses in 48-72 hours. Now, let's all just hope that I haven't jinxed myself and that my immune system won't fail me now!

Just A Bit Of Light Reading

I am about to finish reading the Harry Potter series for, oh, the 4th or 5th time and I have decided that the time has come for me to broaden my horizon. There are many great classics out there that I have never even bothered to pick, and I think that now is as good a time as any. I think I will start small with something familiar like Shakespeare, and then move on to others that I am less familar such as Wuthering Heights or Jane Austen. If any of you have a favorite classic that you would like to share or recommend, please let me know.

A New Chapter

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on my life. For those of you who don't know, I have applied to Western Kentucky University, in Bowling Green, KY where I plan to pursue a degree in Performing Arts. I have sent in my application and my requests for my transcripts to be sent, so now it is just a waiting game. I am actually very excited about this. I know that my life is about to change drastically, in addition to all of the changes that have gone one in the last several months, and I am excited to see what comes next. My parents are probably about to move to South Carolina where my dad will be taking on the position of pastor at a church down there, and I, hopefully, will be moving back to Kentucky within the next 6 months. As I have said, it is all very exciting, but also very scary. I am excited because this is yet another chapter to my book, and I am interested to see where all of this leads me, but I am also scared because this is so different from everything I know. When it is all said and done though, I know that this is leading me to where God wants me to be, and that is a very comforting thought.

"There's so much static electricity in this room, I pick up everything but boys and money."

"You are too twisted for color tv." -Ouiser Boudreaux

"The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." -Clairee Belcher

Annelle: We are in the house of the Lord!
Clairee Belcher: A lot she cares. Ousier's never done a religious thing in her life.
Ouiser Boudreaux: Now that is not true. When I was in school, a bunch of my friends and I would dress up as nuns and go bar-hoppin'.

"Ouiser, you sound almost chipper. What happened today-you run over a small child or something?" -Clairee Belcher

Will and Grace

Jack: For your information, most people who meet me do not know that I am gay.
Will: Jack, blind and deaf people know you're gay. Dead people know you're gay.
Jack: Grace, when you first met me, did you know I was gay?
Grace: My dog knew

"Good Lord. I can't believe I'm at a public pool. Why doesn't somebody just pee directly on me."

"Would it have killed you to acknowledge that he exists, or were you too busy high-kickin' it with Nicole Kidman at the Moulin Rouge?" -Jack, to Will about Elliot

GRACE: You know, it's strange how things have changed for the two of us over the last year. KAREN: Hmm.
GRACE: I'm a married lady giving out dating advice. Now you're the single girl, starting your life over.
KAREN: Mm-hmm.
GRACE: I like it
KAREN: I hate it.

Life's Choices

There comes a time in a person's life when he or she has to decide their own path. We all have our own desires. Desires that burn deep and either have to be fulfilled or let die. Some people want to be doctors. Some dancers. Some lawyers, or teachers, or chefs, or musicians. And then there are those of us who want to be stars. Of course, that's the path I have chosen. In recent years, I have put a lot of thought into what would make me happy. Is it teaching? Is in advertising? Is it in retail management? While I think I could easily be happy in each of these, the burning desire of my heart is to become an actress. There are many times when I am sitting and watching a movie or tv show that I insert myself and my own character into the show, and then I go on to think about the acceptance speech I would give at the awards show for that performance. Yes, I'm the girl nobody has heard of, and yet she has an awards show acceptance speech already planned out. That's me, awards show acceptance speeches....never leave home without one.

Hell Hath No Fury Like Gordon Ramsay

The kitchen was hot as Christina, the culinary student from Missouri, and Petrozza, the catering director from North Carolina, battled it out in Hell's Kitchen. Two worthy opponents battling it out for the chance to be the new executive chef at Gordon Ramsay's new restaurant, London West Hollywood. A position worth a quarter of a million dollars.

The two opponents started out the evening choosing their team of competitors. Petrozza, having one the last challenge, was rewarded by being first to choose his first team member. Up for grabs are Ben, Corey, Lou Ross, Jen, Bobby, and Matt. Bobby is first pick, followed by Corey, who is chosen by Christina. Petrozza chooses Ben next, which is followed by Christina choosing Lou Ross, leaving Matt and Jen to be the last two standing. Tough call for both teams. Had it been me, I would have said no thank you to both of them! But alas, they each have to take one. Petrozza's turn to pick next, and after debating which is the lesser of two evils, he pulls Jen to be on his team; Christina happily takes Matt.

This is where the heat really kicks in and things really start to get interesting. While Ben and Bobby are eager to do everything they can to help Petrozza win, Jen is none too happy to be returning to the show as a team player and not a team captain. Of course, one of the more interesting things said on the show was when Jen said something like this:
"I know that I was picked next to last because I am one of the best cooks in this competition and they didn't want to be outshined by me."
She also had the nerve to ask Chef Ramsay for a letter of recommendation. Needless to say, he didn't say yes. Jen, I think it's safe to say that it's time to get a clue. You suck as a cook. You suck as a person and you need to freaking get over yourself!

On the flip side, we have Corey and Lou Ross who are very excited to be back in Hell's Kitchen supporting Christina and eager to do their best to help her win. The same, however, cannot be said for Matt who told his fellow cooks, as well as Christina and Chef Ramsay himself to "shut up" and let him cook. Let him cook? Get a grip Matt. You don't know how. Let us all take a moment to think back to the episode when he suggested that they serve "sushi on a tortilla" at a girls' 16th birthday dinner.

The evening gets even hotter as each of the kitchens run into their fair share of obstacles. Over in Christina's kitchen, she has trouble getting Matt to actually cook his fish, meanwhile steaks come back to the window cold. Petrozza is not without problems of his own. As if just having Jen on his team were not enough, he can't get her to produce him a decent onion ring. In addition, both Bobby and Jen announce that they are out of ingredients needed for two different appetizers. Because they wouldn't be in the top 2 if they couldn't, they both recover from each of their individual problems and cruise on to serve the last of their 13 tables.

And now the moment we've all been waiting for. Christina and Petrozza are finally called to Chef Ramsay's office where he gives them the traditional pep talk. It was during this time that I actually thought that Chef Ramsay was going to pull rank and present them both with offers they couldn't refuse. After all, really, they both deserved it. But, alas, he did not. Instead, he instructed them to take their respective positions in front of their doors, place their hands on the handles, and open the doors on the count of three. As a reminder, both door handles turn, but only one of them will open. The one that opens leads the winner out into the dining room to be presented to family and friends. Chef Ramsay counts to three, they turn their handles, Christina proceeds through her door out into the dining room of cheering family, friends, and Hell's Kitchen production staff. In the end, Chef Ramsay said he thought Christina not only had the most potential, but had the most potential long-term.

Until next time folks, remember, it's not real, it's just reality!!

My Current Reality

Just to give everyone a small update on my life. This past weekend my parents went to a town in East TN where they met with the personnel committee of a church. They met with them on Saturday, and on Sunday dad preached. Dad was basically told that if he preached well, it was pretty much a done deal. We shall see. The committee is supposed to meet tonight (wednesday) and call dad with a verdict. I will keep you posted on that.

As for me, I really don't know. I jus keep thinking to myself "didn't we just do this? did we not just move from kentucky to atlanta thinking that THIS is where God wanted us?" WHAT IS GOING ON? Well, I do have a choice about whether or not I am going to move. I can stay here with my aunt and uncle and live with them and go to school. I just don't know. Once again I am waiting on a giant billboard to magically appear and say "SHEA, DO THIS." Alas, that is probably not going to happen, sad day. So, that is where I stand in my life today. When that changes, I will let you know. Until next time everybody, remember: It's not real, it's just reality.

"I can't believe I picked the guy with the pink shoelaces!!"

It was down to the final rose ceremony. Two men with two rings. One woman with only one rose. Who's it going to be? Jason, the single dad with a steady career, looks that could win him an Oscar, and a smile to melt half the female population, or Jesse, the long-haired snowboarder who is funny, charming, and says things like "rad"?

And the final rose goes to......... JESSE!!

That's right, women everywhere fell off their chairs as they watched Jason get out of the first limo and walk on towards the biggest rejection of his life. DeAnna, who looked gorgeous, simply smiles as she watches the man whose heart she is about to break, walk up, get on one knee, and propose. (they say he actually went through his entire spill before she said anything and asked him to get up; editing)

Afterwards, Jesse arrives to meet his woman and present her with a ring most women only daydream about.

While none of us saw that coming, I think we can all agree that A.) we are happy for them and B.) this just means that we can all fly to Washington and vy for Jason's heart ourselves.

Don't get me wrong, I thought Jesse was adorable. He was cute, had a great personality, very sweet and loveable; I just never dreamt that he would be the right one for DeAnna. Clearly, she thought differently.

In closing, I would like to congratulate Jesse and DeAnna. I hope the two of you will be very happy together.

To Jason: All that this means is that there is someone 12 times better out there for you and you will find her. Best of luck!

Until next time folks, just remember: It's not real, it's just reality!
