The journey...

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.

4th of JULY!!!


Even though I pre-planned for the 4th to be my "free day," I didn't have to go to bed guilty because of my food choices which rocks. It was actually more of an active day than anything: volleyball, catch, running like a mad woman from way-ward fireworks and more. The thing I've learned about "free days" is that they aren't "blow it" days, reward yourself with a meal (in moderation) and stay on track the rest of the day. It's not a "free for all" buffet - I've worked too hard to do that to myself! Enjoy some pics from 4th of July...

Melody, Me & Johannah - Red, White & Blue @ Pastors farmMelody! I LOVED THIS SHIRT! It said, "Red, White & New." @ the top it had a scripture about the blood of Christ and @ the bottom it had the "If anyone is in Christ he is a NEW creation" verse.Ashley, Audrey & I - my best friendsMom, Dad & I @ Katzer's house (w/ Jessi in the Amo!!!TAYLOR! FINALLY HOME!

Ashley's fiance, just back from 10 months in China - teaching English & sharing Christ which has to be done "underground" as it's illegal to share Christ there.My beautiful Mom & Beautiful friend & roommate Jacqui Jo
The plate of "good stuff" we should have all been eating. :)

The food we spent all day TRYING to avoid...did pretty well too!

You know there is a problem in volleyball when 4 people are all running towards a central location after ONE ball! :) I LOVE PLAYING VOLLEYBALL!!! Emily about to BUMP the ball. This was after she recovered from me accidentally taking her out earlier in the day! Anyone who knows me, knows I have balance issues and find myself falling on the ground quite often. Oops! :(

Joshie boy & I. He's like the little bro I never had - and we fight like he is too. :) Battle wounds!

NEVER PLAY WITH FIRE! I got sparks in my eye while doing fireworks.

My roommate got hit by a "wayward" firework & it burnt through her shirt and burnt her arm too. *sigh*

It was an all-around fun day once again!

Great friends, great fun, great food and great FREEDOM!


Verse of the Day:

Galatians 5:1 (NIV)

It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
