It amazes me how God confirms things for us when we least expect it. I love even more how what he confirms may have been something that happened 3 or 4 years ago that we still personally need closure on. There was a very dark time in my life when I struggled with some bad decisions that I made for my life. I thought it would never be possible to have my relationship with Christ back because I had messed up so bad. Well not only did God give me my second chance but he has confirmed years later that my mistake was washed white as snow. How stinkin powerful is that!!

When you least expect it God will bring people/friends in your life just to say the right thing, at the right time, on the PERFECT day. If that is not encouragement to keep you on the path to loving HIM, serving HIM, and LIVING for HIM, I don’t know what you need.
I just want to take time to THANK you JESUS for reconfirming to me you love and your endless desire to work in my life and make me a better person. I don’t know how people make it in this world without You but I sure can’t!!!

This just proves to me more and more that the WORDS that come from our mouth can either LIFT someone up or TEAR them down. Decide what you want to do today….I sure want to be the vessel that the Lord uses to confirm something important to someone else…like he used someone today to confirm something to me. Chose your words wisely and let God use you!!

I Love you all…whoever you may be!

A Night To Remember...No This is Not A Cheesy Prom Title

What starts with SNOW must end with VOMIT!!!



So a night for the ages happened just yesterday!! Number one I can’t believe I am sharing this story however, it is too good to not give everyone a laugh. For the past few days I have been thinking I was coming down with the stomach virus. All the kids at Walker have been getting it so I knew it was my turn. Even though my stomach has been hurting I just keep on going with life. Amy and I decided to go to the gym meet last night against Florida…ROLL TIDE we WON!! Afterwards we were starving so we went looking for food at 10pm. We tried the new Moe’s BBQ but they were no longer serving food so we then tried Chucks only to end up at Depalma’s. Our food was wonderful and we had a grandmother moment when we enjoyed a cup of coffee after our meal. We are now on our drive home and I looked at Amy and told her I did not know if I could make it home that the stomach was feeling very uneasy. She said do we need to stop I said no I can make it to the house. Keep in mind I’m driving. We are about 2 miles from our house when I said Amy I hate to do this but I have got to …and I can’t believe I am telling this to all of America..toot. Yes I said it and Yes I did it. Well she has a sensitive stomach to smells so I warned her to get the window down. Before she could get the window down she had to gasp for air and this is where the night begins….VOMIT all down the side of my car. Well I then smell VOMIT so I VOMIT all over my car because I could not get my window down. She then sees me VOMIT and goes round 2. By this time I am less than half a mile from the house both of us covered in VOMIT. I have to pull over 3 times in that half a mile for us to Simultaneously VOMIT because I can’t stand the smell and she can’t see it. It was lovely to say the least.

My mother says to me I don’t know what you and Amy are going to do when the day comes that ya’ll have to separate. I said well Mom I don’t either. Mrs. Laura says I suggest you NEVER tell that story ever again. Well Mrs. Laura I told it no matter how embarrassing it is because these moments are definitely what Best Friends are for!

We cleaned the car this morning in another bonding moment……I love spending time with my Byrd but I hope to NEVER spend it again like this!!
