Hanover Mortgage

Today I started my second full week at my new job. I am in training to be a Sales Assistant to two Loan Officers at Hanover Mortgage. I'm actually replacing a good friend of mine that is taking a two year job contract in Morocco!
It has been quite the experience so far. I like it! It's a great job with a lot of possibilities. But there is so much to learn... The friend that I'm replacing is amazing; I have a lot to live up to.
The mortgage industry is very interesting. Is this the career that I want? I don't know, I believe the Lord worked it out for me to work here.
I'm excited to see where He will continue leading me.

some awesome songs!

By Australia Hillsong

When I think about the Lord
When I think about the Lord,
How He saved me, how He raised me,
How He filled me, with the Holy Ghost.
How He healed me, to the uttermost.

When I think about the Lord,
How He picked me up and turned me around,
How He placed my feet on solid ground.


It makes me wanna shout,
Hallelujah, thank you JESUS,
LORD, you're worthy, of all the glory,
And all the honor, and all the praise...

Draw me close to You
Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear You say that I'm Your friend

You are my desire
No one else will do
'Cause nothing else could take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace
Help me find the way
Bring me back to You

You're all I want
You're all I've ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

my sunday

There is something special or different about driving around aimlessly after midnight. I don't highly recommend it especially with gas prices being this high... but it is special. The quiet of the night, only two or three other cars out there, almost all lights are green. It's quiet, but it's also peaceful. I felt like I was floating... the car barely making a sound and the radio turned down really low. It gave me a chance to reflect on the wonderful day that has just occured.

It started off quite early, it always does, I think the alarm went off somewhere between 6:30-6:45am... went through the daily routine of shower, dress, contacts, hair, etc... ran to Starbucks at 7:45 to meet a friend and get my daily dossage of caffeine, then continued on to church at 8:15... Had a great time with my 2nd grade kids, they are wonderful! We discussed the Belt of Truth from Ephesians and talked about how Eve in the garden was not wearing it and how she gave in to the wiles of the Devil... Sunday school was a study of the Holy Spirit in the O.T. and His roles through out... the morning services continued our study through Hebrews, yesterday we went through 6:9-20. Going over some reasons for our confidence = 1. God sees the big picture (we focus on the moments) & 2. God keeps His promises (stability only comes from Him).
My afternoon was quite fulfilling - I enjoyed sesame chicken for lunch, I made a friend smile and laugh, I won a stubborness contest, played some football in the park, got to share with some friends what the Lord is doing in my life.
Then in the evening I went to an outstanding concert of three of my favorite groups.

Overall it was a great day! I am so blessed to belong to an indescribable God, an awesome church, and have such amazing friends.

Please only you

These lyrics have really been the cry of my heart the last several weeks. Because it's so easy to please ourselves and put ourselves before God and His Word.

So here I go again, again
I let myself get spread so thin
But I can see right through my skin
And I don't like what I'm finding in my heart

So many different voices call
And I try hard to please them all
I run in circles 'til I fall
So I'm falling on my knees and praying

Please, Please, Please only You, only You
Please, Please, Please take my heart, and make it true
Let everything I say and everything I do
Please, please only you
Please only you

For every moment of my time
For every thought that fills my mind
For every melody and rhyme
This is the prayer that I'll be praying

Please, Please, Please only You, only You
Please, Please, Please take my heart, and make it true
Let everything I say and everything I do

This is what it means to be
The reason why I live and breathe
To know that I am totally existing for Your pleasure

I'm still learning but I know
As this becomes my only goal
The more I find my heart and soul is filled up with joy when I

I please only you
I please only you
Please only you
