You may not be interested in this event which will occur on December 19th of this year. But if you are and would like to donate some of your time to it. I would greatly appreciate it and many others that feel so strongly about what we are doing would also. I listened to an interview that Barlowgirl had and would like to invite you to be a part of The Spirit of Giving. Here is what I feel about the Spirit of Giving. Have you ever been touched deeply in the heart. To see true Love as people surrounding you give and give from the heart and soul to see the joy on another's face to know that they have done what the Lord and Savior has asked them to do. I have and will continue to see this at the church I attend. First United Methodist Church of Paris,Tx is reaching out to those in need through their Spirit of Giving held annually now since December 2007. Why sale it when it can be given away. So many people give things and expect in return. When it is always better to give than recieve.
I went on a walk with my cousin at the cottage on the Thankspiving weekend. we had been on that trail once befire but, ive never been hit by the fall colors before. they were absolutely phenomenal. we even found a little lake there and sat and talked for a long time. it was one of the most God given moments that weve ever experienced. that dayy i have never felt so close to God or felt His hanmd in the world so incredibly. The maples trees held a blood red and the birches a gold like none other. few trees stayed green and they simply added another perfect hue to the color symphony around us. Thank you Lord For such a magical day.

well, i decided that im going to blog. i dont usually, except sometimes to share poems that i write, but i suppose that i will use this to vent. today it started snowing. its not even half way thru october, and its snowing. even for the UP, that is not normal. i dont like it. today was the start of homecoming. not all too excited. i dont have a date to the dance. that dissapoints me. i really wish this one guy would have asked me, but he lives 2 hours away, and right now he's in wisconsin. thats even more dissapointing. oh well. my life is so boring, so i'll just quit there and share a poem.
I walk the leaf lined street
with all its cracks, its fissures
I want to get away from the people
I want the forest, with all its countless pleasures
I feel more at home there
with the trees hold
free and calm
to me that forest is worth more than all the gold.
Stay away from that street
with all its troubles, its worries
