Thoughts from the booth

I'm sitting in an Applebee's booth.  Well, I'm not exactly at Applebee's but a few years ago, a friend of mine led me to a place where I could get a free Applebee's booth.  I went into the restaurant and took it out, legally.  It's awesome although I don't use it much.  I like to sit in it sometimes when I am at the house alone.  It's fun to just sit here and listen to Mark Driscoll and play on Itunes.  Mark Driscoll just said something that my mom told me a long time ago.  He said that when he started dating his now, wife, that he knew she was the one when he could go on long road trips with her and not kill her.  My mommy told me that a long time ago, that taking a road trip with someone was a good test.  Anywho.

In the past few months, I have felt the Lord pulling me in one direction that I thought I would never go.  Have you ever had one of those things that you said, "yeah that is definitely not something I would do or feel led to do."  ???  Sometimes you have to hear something over a long period of time to really believe that God is serious and it is what He wants and not just your mind playing tricks on you.  On another note, I saw a woman with a baby this morning at church and I thought about being single the rest of my life.  I was like, dear Lord, please do not ever lead me that way!  Haha.  It's funny how life works and you never really know where you will end up and doing only the Lord knows what.  I drove a church van for the first time today, legally.  :) 

Off to Houston for the week, miss you, mean it.
