Beautiful Weather is Finally here!

I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.— Psalm 119:30

Howdy everyone! How is everyone doing? I hope all is wonderful in you guys cornor of the world. Today I got my wonderful "The Wizard of Oz" 70th specail editoin. Well... I had meationed I pre-ordered my Wizard of Oz from Amazon I canceled yesterday before it was shipped praise the Lord. I went to Walmart yesterday to drop mom's medcine off so I could come back and get it today. Well.. I have a guilityness of looking the movies and the books when I go to do that. First stop was to the movies...they had the Wizard of Oz 2 disc specail editoin I read the back of it. Okay the ONLY reason I am buying this movie, which I already have the 3 disc specail edtion that came out four years ago I wanna say is because on this one has "The Dreamer of Oz" - an autobiography of L. Frank Baum and John Ritter played him on it. On the back of this Walmart exclusive and only it had it on there! And it was only $15! Lets see am I gonna spend $50 dollar on a movie I already own or am I gonna spend $15 yes I spent $15. I also stopped by the books... Patrick Swayze's book him and his wife wrote together is out. That will be my next mission when I get job is buy that book. Its not expensive its just I need to save my money. I am trying so hard to save money and find a job but it is so hard! I just got done watching "The Dreamer of Oz" with a Pzone from Pizza Hut and cold Diet Dr. Pepper. Wonderful afternoon.

Today on the calender it is..... September 30 is … National Mud Pack Day. Also known as Mud Pies.
Did any of yall when you were younger make mudpies? Me and Christie sure enough did. My parents used to stack our firewood in the backyard in between these two trees and me and Christie made our fort there. We got our moms old bucket and fell it with water and get grass, weeds, mud and act like we were cooking. I remember one time I brought my moms old fairy tale book out there to act like it was a cookbook. Well... needless to say it rained that night and me and Christie got out butts torn up for that. But I have alot of fun memories of mud pies when I was little. I just thought I would share some information with yall and let yall know I am doing well. And my back pain has gone away for now (knock on wood). I will write more later. I love you and Keep Smiling.

Its been three years and we still miss you babygirl.



A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.Prov 18:24 New King James Version






Lorna Kay Pennington 1985 - 2006 Lorna Kay Pennington, 21, of Fordyce, died Wednesday September 27, 2006 in Camden. She was born in Warren, AR on March 25, 1985. Lorna was a homemaker and a member of the Temple Baptist Church in Fordyce. She is survived by her parents Myzell & Janet Thompson of Fordyce, Ar; her husband James Michael Pennington of Fordyce, AR; a son Dakota Raye Pennington of Fordyce, AR; a brother, Christopher Thompson of Magnolia, AR; four sisters, Laura Herrington of Rison, AR, Leslie Hesselbein of Dover, AR, Renee Reaves of Fordyce, AR, Lana Massey of Camden, AR; and her grandmother, Ivanette Williams of Fordyce, AR. Funeral services are 2:00 pm Friday September 29, 2006 at the Benton Funeral Home Chapel. Burial in Wheeler Cemetery, with the Rev. Mike McEuen & Rev. Bobby Hartgen officiating. Arrangements by Benton Funeral Home of Fordyce.




As I meationed, there was gonna be a time in September I wrote a blog about someone so close to my heart. Well...today is that day. Lorna was my childhood best friend, she was my rock when I needed to cry, my laugh when I needed a laugh, she would sing when she comforted, and she was my date when no one else would take me. I met Lorna in second grade, we got the same teacher and we set right beside one another. We both were shy, our moms knew one another and what got us to talking was we had shirts that nearly matched. I will always remember her smile. When she smiled she smiled with her whole face. We instantly became friends, we slept over at each others house, exchanged Christmas presents, shared books. She was my world. I would spend the night every night after Christmas with her and enjoyed all the wonderful goodies her momma made. I still say the reason why I am hypoglycemic is because of Momma Janet's Butterfinger Cake. Me and Lorna were close. We looked completly different...she had blonde hair I had my black, she was skinny and well I am from from it...she had hazel eyes and I had blue. We had alot of funny times...for example: on our 13th Halloween I ended up not spending the night with her we had a plan. We got our parents to rent horror movies we stayed on the phone. Well, we both rented "Carrie" we saved that for last. I will never forget when the hand pops from the grave Lorna screamed so loud in the phone I think I went deaf. So, till this day I can not watch that movie. I think Lorna slept with her Bible that night. We were each other's Junior prom dates, because we both didnt have dates. She always knew how to make me laugh. When i hear the songs: "Friends" by Micheal W. Smith I think of her. During her senior year she started a guy I really didnt like, she changed...not for the better. She started excluding me, she got really hateful, we fell apart. But we still would talk and have good times together just not the same. The plans we had to evolve around him and his schedule. I miss her deeply, spite the fact we were not that close at the end. She knows I love her more than anything in this world. She is good company up there. She was seven months pregant when she died, no they did not save the baby. She did however leave a handsome legacy behind, her son, Dakota. I look at his pictures, I have not seen him in a while, I know Leslie is gonna raise him in a wonderful Christian atmosphere. And, I know he is gonna grow up knowing all about his momma.



This picture I attached is one of me and Lorna at our Senior Night. They joked on Senior Night that me and Lorna would be the old ladies in the nursing home in electric wheelchairs chasing one another. I have promised myself that if I was to put in a home my first U-turn in my electric chair will be dedicated to her. Lorna and I were about the same height. Our sophomore year we had every class together but two. And heres the funny thing...those two classes...we were right next door to one another. I guess they knew they could not seperate us. We took Drama together our senior year and had a blast. She was beautiful inside and out. She could fisty and she could be sweet as a cupcake. I still see her family from time to time and I do not stop but nothing to stop and give a hug. I know I am welcome to her house anytime its just hard.

Me and Lorna have a classmate named, Derrick Sims. And me and him from
time to time since we got out of high school. About a month ago he sent me this picture that he has hanging in his house. He said he bought it a few weeks before Lorna died. Look very closely at it. When I met Lorna when I was younger her hair used to be that color. Exactly that color. That is the Lorna I know hair. I say it looks just like her. I am determined to find out the name of that painting and get one and put it in my future home. It scares me how much it looks like her, from the smile to the belly button. Its Lorna. Derrick, if you are reading this thank you so much for sending this to me.
So in conclusion, I just wanted to let you guys know about my Lorna and how much she means to me. I love you all and Keep Smiling.


Hair Cut and Retail Therapy.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Psalm 23:5

I know its been a few days since I wrote in my blog and I am so sorry for that I been swamped with school work, some personal drama with men (of course!), and working on getting to feeling better. Well, I am feeling a tad bit better I have started my period ( I know TMI) but that might be the reasoning behind my pain I was expering but I am still going to the doctor soon. I decided on Wenesday I was once and for long going to cut my hair. Well.... not me personally...but you guys know what I am talking about. It is in fact short, its in the shape of a bob and with spikey ends. I love it! The main reason I cut it is because I love my long I do, but it was so thick and straightening it took almost an hour and a half. Yes, craziness. With this I put some hairspray, bursh it lets go to town. I tried a different hair dresser this time around and she re-opened a shop that was once run by my old hair dresser. Her shop is AMAZING! It has crosses everyone, she has her bible open for everyone to read. She even has a sign on her door that says if you choose to use profainity you must leave now. My favorite thing was that she was so warm she wants me to come up and there anytime since I live close to her shop and talk to her. Me and Robbie are thinking about going to her church for Bible Study she invited us. Ya'll would love her shop.

On Thursday, I went to Magnolia with Robbie as usual (which I won't this Thursday) but we had a blast .. somewhat. Well, we got there and it was sprinkling and we were gonna go eat Pizza Hut first but we saw there was a Factory Connection near by it and they had a 75% off Summer and Spring clothing. Okay, for those who do not know I hardly wear long sleeves but I have ALOT of them. So, this was my chance. Heres what I all got...

1- black low v-neck blouse will have to wear a cami under.
1- kelly green (2nd favorite color) v-neck puffy sleeve top
1- purple short sleeve mock turtleneck!
1- grey leggings ( I have black)
1- brown leggings
1- black and white cheeckered scarf
3- pairs of earrings (3 pck deal)
1- necklace
1 - ring with peacock colors on it
How much did I spend? $100? Nope try - $40! Yes you see $40! I really did not have the money to splurge but well... I think I deserve to treat myself from time to time. I told Robbie when I get a job we are soooo coming back. I wore today my gray leggings and purple top with my necklace and earrings. I just wish I was not a chunky monkey. And, buying plus size clothes are hard that are cute and affordable. I wear a size 18/20 I know I might not look it but I do. And Robbie is bigger than me and at this FC she got a pair of pants for $10! The lady said they just been having a good sale and they are gonna have this sale for a while I was like yea!! So happy about that. My mom likes everything I got but the scarf. Try to explain they are in style but what do I get? An eye roll. Then we went to Pizza Hut....well...lets just say me being hypoglycemic I got sweet tea (didnt want it but Robbie ordered it for me) I wanted Diet Dr Pepper or Coke or Pepsi. Whatever. Diet. But this tea tasted like it had four cups of sugar in it. I got so sick I hardly ate anything, threw up, was getting dizzy. So, we went to campus I got me a cold Sprite Zero (Diet Sprite) it calmed my stomatch some. And, Robbie had to go to class and then I went to watch the free showing of "My Sisters Keeper". Oh my lordie....I cried the whole way through. Great Movie. Will be buying it. We left campus, went to Taco Bell (it tasted so good after being sick) and a cold DIET DR PEPPER! We went to Walmart to get gas and I went in I been craving cupcakes on this period and Robbie found a red velvet (my favorite cake) JUMBO cupcake. Yes...I ... admit... I bought it. The best $2.50 I ever spent that was for sure. That was my days. And I hope you all are doing wonderful. And, I love you and Keep SMiling.

Yes...I am poking fun of the country song, but in reality to me its true. This afternoon I got a phone call from my wonderful bestie, Meredith and which I was not alarmed because we talk everyday more than once a day and also I called her. Well, she has a blog a very sweet, wonderful INNOCENT blog and she got a little suprise this morning on her blog. Someone left a rude comment about her and insulting the great state of Arkansas. Now, it was from an annoynomus poster. I said to her, that is proof in the pudding that person is scared. It was sent at eight this morning... I do not know about yall but my happy butt was still in bed. Well, I am not making my blog private but she is setting hers to it. Which I do not blame and she deleted the comment. In the words of Stephaine Tanner off Full House, "How Rude!". Folks come on, what happend to loving your neighbor as you love yourself. That might be the bananas in the banana pudding they do not love themselves. I am so sorry what happend to my Mer and just thought I would vent on how rude that was of whomever it was. If you want Meredith is on my followers go show her some love because that was not called for at all. I love you Mer!






Well what else have I done today, sleep, school work, bible study, sleep. My kidneys are still hurting like mad it is looping around to hurt on my ovaries and yes my period is about to start in a few days but this has been hurting since the last month in July. The only thing that knocks out the pain is extra strength tynoel or a pain relaxer my mom gives me. So, being comfy is a must in my book....times like these I wish I had a laptop. I slept more than I should these past few days but it just hurts to move or walk a long time. So my daily walking has slacked off and two it rained a flood last week so I been kinda out of routine for the past week or so. Right now in my Bible I am reading about relationships. All kinds of relationships: marriages, friendshipships, enemies..you get where I am going with this. I believe GOD put it on my heart to send emails to each and everyone of you you guys. I love you all so very much. Ya'll have been a huge blessing and part of my life.






Okay, I finished the Elizabeth Taylor biography today...I sure hope the author is not gonna read this. Well, it seemed like just a typical Elizabeth Taylor, it was like the author copied and pasted stuff from different places on the web and said BAM heres a bio. So...I give it two out of five stars. I know I am sorry but it was not that great of a book. Now, I am starting new books...here are my reads.






1. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I been wanting to see the movie since


I saw the tralier for the movie. Kinda before than actually if I think about it. I have only read the introduction and the first chapter... so far I am liking it. I am all about time travel, I love "The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells which believe it or not his birthday is today. So happy birthday H.G Wells whereever you are. Lets hope heaven. I bought this last week I wanna say Thursday because I had to go get mom's medcine from Walmart and my Walmart here in my bump in the road finally got it! Me and Robbie looked at Magnolia and they never had it and they finally got it here so now I am gonna be reading it. It took everything in me to put it down to go to bed last night. But, I think its gonna be a great read, if any of yall have read it or seen the movie leave me some comment love and let me know. I would love to know how this book or movie is. Onto book numero dos.






2. Her Husband: Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath--A Marriage (Paperback). by Diane Middlebrook


I got this book about a year ago at Barnes and Nobles for about four dollars, yes I am huge sucker for bargain books. I think Sylvia Plath had a lot of issues. I think she needed to put into a psych ward, got some good drugs, and a daily hug. If you do not know the story of her well here goes. She was a famous writer and well put this lightly she stuck her head in a burning hot oven and killed herself. See now needed some major good drugs and a hug. I have read her book, "The Bell Jar" absloutely amazing, very sad but it is worth reading. So, the reason why I bought this book besides hello four dollars who would not wanna buy this thing and well I am a fan of hers. This books looks to me anyway to say, "What went wrong?" And as a psychology major I am all about what went wrong. So we shall see what we find out in the book of a marriage of hers.


3. Lastly.... THE WIDOW OF THE SOUTH by Robert Hicks.
Okay, I randomly bought this book at Walmart one Thursday when I was with Robbie and well... dare I say it. It has some romance it. I can not believe Robbie wanted me to buy this thing. Okay, if its bad its gonna be bad anyway I look at it. The reason why I bought it is okay good points. 1. South - well I am southern lady and south is good probably talks about things I can relate too or at least know what they are talking about. 2. War - I hate the sight of blood but love to read war novels. Suprising there? Well, maybe its because I am not seeing in person just my minds eye. But, Robbie why this book?! I was wanting to read "Julie and Julia."Okay, I am gonna read it last and we shall see if I like it and wanna keep it in my book section or toss it and give it to Robbie who wanted the blasted thing to begin with. *Laughs*
Well, this all for today I hope ya'll are doing well. Had a wonderful Monday and an amazing week ahead of you. I love you so much and Keep Smiling.

Quotes I find that are fun!

Today's Verse
Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
Romans 8:23



Carrie: The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun. Sex and the City



We do not quit playing because we grow old, we grow old because we quit playing.Oliver Wendell Holmes



The greatness comes not when things go always good for you. But the greatness comes when you're really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.Richard Milhouse Nixon



If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything.Marilyn Monroe



Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.Mark Twain

Love is never wanting to lose faith, never wanting to give up, and never truly moving on. Love is knowing and praying in the deepest part of what's left of your heart that they feel the same. CourtneyJo Wright



I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.Marilyn Monroe



The ones that you love the most are usually the ones that hurt you the most

If you're going through hell, keep going. ~Winston Churchill

We acquire the strength we have overcome. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. ~Author Unknown

Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway. ~Mary C. Crowley

People who do not understand themselves have a craving for understanding. ~Wilhelm Stekel

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward. ~Kurt Vonnegut

This one is my favorite quote and I am trying so hard to live by it:

Carrie : Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous. --- Its the last line of the series Sex and the City.

Adventures of Lindsey and Robbie.

Proverbs 24:1717 Don’t rejoice when your enemy falls. Don’t let your heart be glad when he is overthrown.


Okay guys and gals, I know I have not wrote in two days and for that I am deeply sorry. It is just so much is going on in my life that I want to scream sometimes. For about a two months I have had pain in my back looped around to where my ovaries are its stronger than menstural cramp pain. The only thing that knocks out the pain, is extra strength tynoel. I would go to the doctor but one a doctor cost money and two I have my annual papsmear done in two weeks so if only can hold out till then. YUCK! Well....yesterday me and my friend Robbie went to Magnolia. We were planning on going to the fair there and maybe go out for supper. Well...change of plans we go by the fair and it is muddy I mean MUDDY so we decided we are gonna go ride around. We on our way to Magnolia here about the "Great Mule Ride". Well lets just say we turned down the wrong road and ended up in the mule ride with all the other cars, buggies, carts..you name it. The reason why this is so funny is because one we did not plan this and two she was almost out of gas and no where to turn around unless we wanted to use someones yard. We survied and got to Murphy Oil to fill up in the nick of time. That will be twenty mins I laughed so hard till we both cried. The adventures of me and Robbie have oh my my. After that lovely adventure we went to get gas like I meationed and then we went to eat Chinese. I LOVE CHINESE! Espically Chen Chen's in Magnolia. Super nice people, quiet atomsphere, word of wise: Verzion doesnt have good signal in there though. We (me and Robbie) have a tradiation we always get a fortune cookie and eat it in car on our way of leaving. We window shopped some, we went to Dollar Tree I bought me some Halloween stationary stuff and Robbie has a weakness for snowglobes so she bought her four snowglobes... for a dollar a pecie can you really bet it? We went to Walmart and be shocker I came out empty handed! We also looked around at Catos and Payless now that made us depressed we just needed a pocket full of money. We got bored and had a little of cash on us and at 2:30 we decided to go see the new Madea movie. Oh my heavens if you need a good laugh...GO! It was a great movie maybe when we come back we get to see Julie and Julia if it is not stopped by then. We decided after the movie to make one more loop through Magnolia and we came home. I took a well deserved two hour nap. I will write more later but my pains are hurting and I will write more I LOVE YOU! And, Keep Smiling.

Happy Anniversity Mom and Daddy!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.




This is a younger picture of my parents I think I was either a baby or really young. My parents if my dad was still alive would be thirty eight years. They met when my mother was the eighth grade, and my dad had graduated high school that May. They met each other on a blind date in November. My mom used to tell me she could not stand my dad on their first date because she confused his sense of humor for cockyness. And my dad said about her that she was so quiet if she said BOO! she would jump into the next town. But they dated, five long years and were head over heals one another. They were married: September 17, 1971 at the home of Bro. Mac Smith with a few close friends. My dad was a wonderful man, he was funny, smart, understandble but stern. My parents were pleased to know to have me and Christie. We were the sparkles of his eye and momma was the smile on his face. It took them fourteen years and four miscarriages later just to have me. Today I took mom out for lunch (supper too filled the both of us up!) at Woods in Camden. Really good food! I know if my dad was still alive he would of done it or they would of went somewhere to eat. I miss my daddy everyday I can not imagine the pain my mom goes through. We (me and mom) were talking today at lunch about how we think daddy should just walk through the door like he went to walmart, or he is in the back taking a nap, and if we are in the back part of the house he should be in living room watching tv or sleeping in his recliner, not gone. I say I look like my dad! So many people agree with me but momma and a few others say me and her (mom) look a lot a like. I will post a picture of me and Christie on the bottom here. Ya'll let me know. I wanted you guys know that today is a specail to me and my family. And, finally show you guys of my handsome daddy and my beautiful momma! Here are me and Christie!


WARNING: Older picture its like two years old but I cant find some recent ones. She has some but I don't. But, I thought I would show you faces with pictures so if I say, "Momma" or "Daddy" or even "Christie" you'll know who I am talking about. Christie looks a little bit different...tanner... and gained soem college weight! I will post some newer ones at a later time. But this is my family. I am glad you decide to read this blog. I love you and Keep SMiling!

Why Do I Have A Blog?

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.John 15:13


Hey everyone, I hope everyone is doing well and is not sick with the flu my word there is a lot of flu going around my poor sister has got it now and is suffering. So...be praying for her. I just thought I would write a quick blog before I go run some errands and get back to school work. BLAH! Now, I have been asked to do this blog by an important friend of mine whom I adore. She got me into blogging me, and I thank her everyday for it. It is such an amazing feeling that GOD put on my heart one night to send most of you guys emails and said GO! Here is the reasoning behind my blog.


1. Matthew 28:18-20 (The Great Commission) when HE said, "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." I believe that my blog will shine a light on that there are still good, hard-working, honest, for true Christians out there. And, you never know this could be a place where someone comes to get away from life or troubles and I send them email or one of you sends an email out about my blog someone might find it and could change their life. I sure hope so one day.
2. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. John 15:12-15. I hope and pray that I make new friends through this that you guys no matter what the problem is you can come to me. Send me a comment, an email (prettyblueeyesnpink@yahoo.com), or facebook message. That is why in my signature to yall is I love you and Keep Smiling. Because as Christian's we are suppose to love everyone. And, what usual happens when someone says I love you.... you smile! So that is the story behind my signature.
3. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him.Psalm 32:10. I like any human being have bad days... days I want to stay in bed...days that I want to just curl up with a good book and read...and not have a care in the world. But you guys are part of my world if you read this. So, there will be days that I will be sad or upset or something sad will be written on my blog. Like as a warning, I will be writing about my dad...its my parents wedding anniversty and so I will be a little sad tomorrow. I tend to vent on here too, but it is okay because I know you guys do not mind it all. I know you guys have me in your prayers and I have yall in mine.
4. Romans 3:27 (King James Version)
27Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. I do not set out to boast about my life, the things GOD has given me. Because those things can be taken from us in a heartbeat. They should be the sparkle of your eye, not for everyone to be like, "Oh I wish I had that nice of a house or I wish I could take that vacation." I think it is amazing alot of you get to go and do things and we all love hearing about it. I love talking about my life and telling you guys about it but, it blows my mind with folks who seem to have it all. But, I sit here and think do they really have it all or do they pretend to? Do they have it all and not have GOD in their hearts? Because, you can have all the riches in the world but not have GOD in your life that just blows my mind!

I am so blessed and thankful for each and everyone of you, I hope and pray that you are well. Amd, if you have a prayer request post it below. Even if it is something so small, do not fear or worry I'm here. I might be only 24 years old but I am here. I love you guys so much and Keep Smiling. :)

Rain Rain Go Away!

My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Exodus 33:14)



How is everyone? I am doing pretty good, minus the sore lower back, and I am feeling incridibly blessed. Today yet again in SA (South Arkansas) it is raining. My day started off okay and I got up went walking did not walk as much as I hoped to but it is a good way to start a morning and praise the LORD it did not start raining on me. I also went to the bank took care of some busincess, went to get me and mom lunch and came home this rain just makes you want to stay in bed and do nothing at all sometimes. I also have talked to my wonderful bestie today she is my sunshine alot of times, I think I will keep her. No one has voted on the Bible Study idea so me and her have decided to do one just the two of us. If you guys wanna do one at a later time that is perfectly fine. We plan on doing, Esther: It is tough being a woman by Beth Moore. I absloutely love Beth Moore and her ministry. I also have played with Salem and Reese some, which are like my little babies they are spoiled rotten guys, I promise. Okay, I wrote a blog a while back entitled: To Cut the Hair or Not to Cut the Hair that is the question? I am sure you guys are wondering what did I end up doing. Well, I decided .... (drum rolls) I decided not to cut it . If my camera was to act right I would post a recent picture of me with straighten hair and my Mary Kay make up but since its not you just have to bare with me till my sister comes home and can help figure out what is wrong.
So, has everyone heard about this Kayne West and Taylor Swift drama? Okay, I feel so bad for Taylor I would of been mortifed. Its all over the interent now, that is what I think Kayne was planning on doing. And, second, this is just my opinon yes it is very sad Micheal Jackson has died. But, come on people lets move on there is more to life then this man. There are more people dying than just him. Like, Patrick Swayze I hardly have seen anything on his death. My prayers are with both of these familes its just sicking its been almost a month and Micheal Jackson is still blowing up our screens.
Thursday I will not be posting until later than usual, it my parents thirty-eighth wedding anniversty if my handsome daddy was still alive. I know the cementary will be too mushy so I am taking my mommy out to eat fish (for her) and shrimp (for me) so she will not be so alone. I know my dad would of taken her somewhere so I am gonna do the good daughter deed and take care of momma! I will write a blog about my parents that day including a younger picture of them. There is a long overdue debate who I look like? I say momma, majority of folks say my dad. I know I ACT like my dad, very funny, love to talk, really forgiving. So... I will let you guys be the judge!
I am gonna run for now, might post something fun later... I love you and Keep Smiling!

Rest in Peace.. Patrick Swayze

They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.Revelation 12:11






How is everyone? This will be a short blog but I will write more later... Patrick Swayze, 57, actor, dancer, director passed away last night at home.




Now you are no longer suffering we will deeply miss you and our prayers are with your family. We love you! Keep Smiling and I love you guys... I will write more later.

Rain on a Sunday afternoon.

Acts 14:17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

How is everyone? Well, here in South Arkansas it is currently raining. No thunder. Just rain. This is the kind of weather that makes you wanna ball up your favorite person and just cuddle. Well, since I do not have a favorite person near by my blanket and my computer will have to do for now. How is everyone else weather? Please guys let me know about the Bible Study idea I posted about. I have two votes so far from people who do not read my blog well one techinally does. I am also taking a break from my Social Problems homework. It depresses me that there is so much going on in the world around us and we never stop to think and look at it. One of my favorite quotes is off the movie, Ferris Bullers Day Off it goes a little like this. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. I completely agree with this statement. It is so hard to believe my sister will be twenty in January, she should still be a baby. We should still be playing dress up, finger painting or me teaching her to write her name. I do however have to admit that since my dad has died me and her have gotten a lot closer. Yes, we argue and yes, we are two total polar opposites but I feel so blessed to have a sister. I could not imagine what being an only child is like. My mom is one of three children she's the baby. She has a brother whom lives in South Arkansas who is a truck driver and a older sister who died before I was born in a truck hitting her head on and killing her and her infant daughter. My dad was one of six children. Big Famly. Im suprised he did not want a big family himself. Mickey is my dads brother who works in a lumber mill. Jeff he is a math professor in Texas. Anita is in Texas as well and is having some back trouble be praing for her. Patsy was my aunt, I never got met her and my dad did not talk about her much. Erstine is also an aunt I never got to met. But, my Aunt Patsy and Erstine both had children who are closer to my parents age instead of me calling them Jean or Ricky I say Aunt Jean and Uncle Ricky. My dad's family is pretty close, I hardly see my moms family. My dads parents died before me and Christie were born, and my moms stepdad died when I young. And, her mother died four months before my dad died. One day I hope to have two or three children of my own. I am gonna run for now, I have alot of work to do that is due soon. I love you and Keep Smiling.

National Pet Memorial Day

As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father's house anymore. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul.1 Samuel 18:1-3






Yes, its me again I am sorry I write so much. I just enjoy it . I found on a google either last week or the week before a list of everyday of the month has a certain day. If you want me to look certain dates for you leave a comment and I will look it up for you. I will show you what somedays that are important to me:




July 20th-My Birthday- Ugly Truck Contest Day- I dont even own a truck.


March 8th-Dads Birthday-Be Nasty Day- I find this funny because my dad was a jokester.


May 4th-Moms Birthday-National Candied Orange Peel Day- Well mom does like candy orange slices.


January 26th-Christies Birthday- Opposite Day - Well me and her are opposites does that count?


January 18th- Robbies Birthday- Winnie the Pooh Day- Intresting she likes Winnie the Pooh.


August 30th- Merediths Birthday - National Toasted Marshmallow Day. Smores anyone?


March 25th- Lorna's Birthday- Pecan Day and Waffle Day. Lorna did like Waffles.




The reason why the title of this blog is what is because that is what today's date thing says. I have had quiet a few pets that went to pet heaven. My longest living pet would probably be, Copper, my dashaund I had. Copper was named after the dog in the Fox and the Hound. He was giving to me for my third birthday and he was my world when I was a little girl. He died when I was nineteen so he had a great life. We have also had fish which have died and gone to fish heaven. We have had four guinea pigs, not all at the same time. Me and Christie got addicted to the guinea pig phase when Doctor Dolittle came out in theaters. We now have Salem who is our very spoiled cat who stays in constant viewing. I do not know if I meationed to ya'll but Christie has a dog she shares with her fiance, Cody. His name is Reese. Reese is my world, he always cheers me when I see him. He is very very smart. He looks like a Reese cup that is why he is named Reese. He is an applehead chiqua (sp?). I am a die hard Arkansas Razorbacks fan so the other day when I was in Wal-mart I bought him a collar bandana to wear. I said you know Reese they say in the bible "As for me my household we will serve the LORD". Well, not only do we do that but we love the Razorbacks if I have anything to do with it. I better marry a man that loves them as much as I do or Im in a heap of trouble. I will post a picture of Reese.




He's a little bit bigger than that now this was taken when he first came here. If you are wondering what he is laying its the top of Salems carrier. Thats all we had till Christie bought him a bed. He is VERY spoiled. He knows who everyone is. Examples:
Momma- Christie
Daddy- Cody
Auntie Windsey- Duh me.
Grammy- My mom or Cody's mom
Bubba- Salem.
He knows who Robbie is and some other folks. He just brightens my day I joke with Christie and say he is like my little Toto. I know why now Toto followed Dorothy everywhere there was food in that basket lol. I sure do love him though. Well, back to school work. I love you and keep smiling.

Prayer Request Form

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,Who redeems your life from destruction,Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,Who satisfies your mouth with good things,So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. Psalms 103: 2-5

Today's Verse
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age...— Titus 2:11-12

How is everyone? I missed ya'll.Yes, I know that I did not write yesterday. I had alot of Social Problems work I needed to work on and my kidneys are starting to give me some trouble. Don't worry, if they keep up after my school payment gets taken out of my checking account I will be going to the doctor because this has been going on since June. Welcome new and old followers. In my book its still morning so Good Morning! Alot has happend as of Thursday night and Friday day. But, I will not post about that wonderful thing until/if it happens. Everyone I know some of ya'll are not from Arkansas but Waldo's school, it was abonded burned down last night so please be praying for that community. I know this a day late better be a day late than not doing it all! Where were you guys on 9/11/01? I was in my Biology class and we were done for the day we were just waitting on the bell to ring. It never rung. Another teacher came into the class room to tell the teacher to dismiss and send us to second period and they will explain. My second period was with my friend, Bonnie (I will write a blog about her in Ocotober). And, we were to stay there all day but get released for lunch. Blessed, I was in Civics (Government) and there was a TV in there. The teacher we had was famous for college-type lectures and he told us of what happend. He said, "For once and so many years I will not be lecturing to you today. Today we will sit in silence." I am gonna run for now, I need to work on some school work but I will be writing more later. I promise. I love you and Keep Smiling.

Beautiful Wenesday and rain.



Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”—Nehemiah 8:10




Okay guys and gals, how is everyone? I hope everyone is well and nothing is going wrong. Well, I got to thinking about a few things. How about we do a bible study? A Beth Moore bible study? I meationed this lightly in my what are you reading tag. But, I really want to do something with you guys! I will post book covers, and ya'll let me know what yall think on them? I can order mine when we get done voting! I can start as soon or as late ya'll want me too. I can do it different days of the week to work around people schedule. Whenever is fine with me. Keep Smiling. I love you. Okay here are some options....




Book One: Esther: It’s Tough Being a Woman - Member Book.






Book Two: Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed: A Study of David


Why do I want to be a Christian Counselor?

James 5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.


Well.. I was in college during my third year and I was majoring in English. I did not do good in those classes none the less I confused a passion for reading for the mistake of a love for something. Yes, there are two different meanings. Over that summer I prayed for GOD to show me what needed to be in my life. And, if I will give my ex boyfriend of three years any props or kudos I will give him this. He said, "All your life you have given people advice or been a mentor any some kind of program." "You would be a great counselor, it will be alot of work but I can see you doing that." So, I was like what kind of degree would I need. The degree my school offers is a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Sociology and then you go into and get a Masters from them in Clinical and Mental Counseling. That is what I plan on doing, right now I am taking a class every semester till I get to go back in the fall at my old school so I could get my GPA up and finish what I need to do here. Here recently I got to thinking and researching about the Masters my school offers and to additon to the mental and clinical counseling they have School Psychology and it is only a semester longer so why not get both? Intresting huh? So, I am thinking about getting a double Bachelors, a double Masters, maybe one day a double Doctrine? Now, I have a few people about this dream I have of my dream clinic so I am going to share it with you.....

H.E.L.P Clinic (Having Everyday Love Possible)- See the HELP in there.

It will be house, like me and you live in and the living room would be a waitting room and there will be a kitchen and in the dining room area it would be a table and chairs and food in the fridge. There will be a televison in the waitting room with actually good stuff on. My reposents will have a bowel of quotes, scriptures, and hymn lines in there you must take one. It could make your day :). There will be the master bedroom which will be my office. It will be nice and comfy no lay down on the couch and how does that make you feel stuff. You tell me from your heart. There will be an extra bedroom which would consit of a queen size bed, big enough for anyone. It would also have a baby bed and all the things for a baby: changing table, diapers, wipes, toys for all ages. The reason for the room? Because what if someone is being abused, or neglected they will always have a home here. They get to be taken of. Their safe here. Why a house? Because no one I do not think NO ONE wants be forced to go to a clinic where they do not know anyone. There will be a third bedroom just in case the client who is going through a tough time needs someone there with them. Either me or an older child. I would not mind it all being there for you or any of my clients. When I get my Masters and a steady job I will work on this as soon as GOD puts that chance in my hands. I strive for the better tomorrow not just for me but for the lives of everyone in my life.
I feel so blessed because I get to share my dream or dreams with you guys. You guys have been such wonderful blessings. I love you and Keep Smiling.

To Cut The Hair or Not Cut The Hair is the Question of the day.






And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8









Well, Okay everyone I have a problem. Not the usual ones (laughs). My hair is medium length it falls into my back it is a little bit longer than what is on my profile picture. I was thinking, I have gotten my hair cut every single time in the past two years with the guys I was with broken up with. I got my haircut. I know I did not at all plan it like that. I am debating on cutting it. It is beautiful hair, I love long hair but it takes forever to dry and style and meationed that is just half of it. I love my color of my hair I do not plan on coloring it, I get tons of compliments on how pretty and black it is for someone so far and blue eyes. So, no reason to change the color. Let me show you guys some pictures of what I am thinking:






Three Options:








Option One: Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen off Twilight) I love Alice on Twilight :)




Option 2: Kate Gosselin Hair. Note on these pictures I am not changing the color of my hair just the style.




Kate Three Kimberly Locke hair. I really like the Ashley Greene and this one. But, I will let you guys vote. And, if you have any suggestions I am open to them. Look at my picture now and see what you guys think. I will write more later. I love you and Keep Smiling.

Yes indeed, My favorite movie is "The Wizard of Oz". Has been for twenty years now. Not only do I love the movie, I have all the Oz books, and every Oz movie ever made. Later on this month they will be putting out the 70th anniversity edition and being the Oz nerd I am I have already pre-ordered my copy. My mom let me watch this movie at a very young age and I have fond memories of my father reading me the story. Who is my favorite character you might ask? The Scarecrow is my favorite character, because I relate to him. In every book I read I find one character I relate too. The Scarecrow in this case is because he is smarter than he thinks he is. And, he has three best friends that will help along the way. We all have friends that help him. I also have read Gregory Maguire's, Wicked Triology. Makes you think differently of the Wicked Witch theory. Here is some trivia for you: Did you know that in the books the shoes are not ruby but silver? So, growing up I didnt want ruby slippers I wanted silver! This year, March to be exact me and Robbie went to Branson as a girl's getting away weekend. We had a blast: went shopping, went to the Titanic musem, Ripleys Believe it or not, enjoyed watching it snow while we were in our hot tub indoors, and met some amazing airbrushers. But... why am I telling you all this? For Christmas I asked mom for a emerald green ring it did not have to be real but just emerald green. So, me and Robbie went shopping got a bunch of stuff like I got a sign in my room that says "Yellow Brick Road Blvd". But, the last place we went to was this little gift shop I can not remember the name of it to save my soul. And, Robbie was looking at jewelery and she hollared (well not scream) Lindsey, come here! So, I went over to her and she knew bad I wanted a emerald ring. She found one! I was like, "Robbie it is not gonna fit". Well, everyone it fit and it was only $10! I bought it no questions asked. So, everyday on my right hand since I bought it (yes it does the finger green only downfall) I wear it. It reminds me of the love I have for this beloved movie. And, like I said I love ballet flats... just so happens I have a red sequin pair I barely wear, and a pair of silver ones I need to replace. So call me a nerd.... if you wish. Now, I am going to share with you my favorite quote from the book, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".
"She threw her arms around the Lion's neck and kissed him, patting his big head tenderly. Then she kissed the Tin Woodman, who was weeping in a way most dangerous to his joints. But she hugged the soft, stuffed body of the Scarecrow in her arms instead of kissing his painted face, and found she was crying herself at this sorrowful parting from her loving comrades."
Isn't that just beautifuly written, I always thought it was werid she never kissed the Scarecrow. If you were to miss him most of all, wouldn't you of kissed him goodbye. Oh well. I just thought I would do a tag I got requested to do, and hope you enjoy learning more about me. I will write more later I promise. I love you and Keep Smiling.

Exodus 23:25


Here some random facts I got about this subject:


This year, over 9,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer is the leading cause of death among children.

Over 1500 children died of cancer in 2005.
Children tend to develop different types of cancer than adults.


The National Childrens Cancer Society - This is a website worth reading more about.


Types of Childhood Cancer

Children can suffer from several types of cancer, such as
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia
Bone cancer
brain and spinal cord cancer
Ewing's Sarcoma
Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
Neuroblastoma
Osteosracoma
Retinoblastoma
Rhabdomyosarcoma
Wilm's Tumor


Childhood cancer is not a single disease, but rather many different types that fall into 12 major categories. Common adult cancers are extremely rare in children, yet many cancers are almost exclusively found in children.

Today, up to 75% of the children with cancer can be cured, yet, some forms of childhood cancers have proven so resistant to treatment that, in spite of research, a cure is illusive.Childhood leukemia (making up the largest group of childhood cancers) was once a certain death sentence, but now can be cured almost 80% of the time.On the average, 1 in every 4 elementary school has a child with cancer. The average high school has two students who are a current or former cancer patient. In the U.S., about 46 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every weekday.One in every 330 Americans will develop cancer by the age of 20. On the average, 12,500 children and adolescents in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year.On average a treatment for childhood cancer diagnosis is two years.Cancer treatment can cause serious side effects that may last a lifetime.Research on the emotional impact of childhood cancer finds that parents and siblings report even greater longterm emotional impacts than the diagnosed child.
