Genesis Chapter 5

So tonight in class, there was about maybe 15 minutes left for the teacher to finish his lesson and we still had an entire chapter to finish, Genesis 5. This lists 10 men in the lineage of Adam. I thought to my self, "Great, he's going to start talking and half way through he will get cut off and I will have to listen to the next lesson to finish this chapter!" He started talking about how everything in the Bible is God inspired and how we need to pay attention to even the littlest details that God has given to us.

He then starts talking about the 10 men listed in chapter 5: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalael, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech and Noah. It starts with the first man, Adam, and ends with Noah bringing the flood. No real big surprise, right? Well then he started giving us the meanings of these guys names:

Adam: man
Seth: appointed
Enosh: mortal
Kenan: sorrow
Mahalael: blessed God
Jared: came down
Enoch: teaching
Methuselah: his death shall bring
Lamech: despairing
Noah: comfort

Now if you list out these 10 names in genealogical and chronological order you have this sentence:
Man was appointed mortal sorrow, but the blessed God will come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing comfort.

Here in Genesis 5 God was telling us that Jesus would come to save us from eternal sorrow! How amazing and awesome is God!

July 13-18

This week was a little bit different than the rest. It started out with me...loosing my camera! I looked all over the place for it! I had been doing some cleaning and it was no where to be found. So as I was laying down on my couch Thursday night, there it was under the table! Of all places for it to be! I was all ready to go out and buy an "adult camera", lol. Not the point and shoot kind, but a real kind with the lens and everything. Oh well, maybe it was God telling me to wait :) But I did take some fun pictures of Friday through Sunday, so enjoy:

Friday: I got a phone call from Dave telling me that he found a baby bunny swimming in his parents pool. I told him that he could bring it over and I would bring it to my vets appointment with Hunny (she has a hot spot on her tail). The bunny was so cute and soft! Honestly, I didn't want to give him up, but I knew that they would know what to do with it better than I would. Besides, I have my crazy Hunny, who took one look at the bunny was got all excited like it was a new toy!
Saturday: There are a few pictures here:
Saturday am: 181!!!!! I am so excited to see that number come up on the scale! I am so close to my goal, I can taste it (and it tastes like a big and rich piece of cheesecake smothered in hot fudge!)
Saturday afternoon: I went to a BBQ at my friend Belinda's house. I was pretty much one of the youngest people there, but I had fun. Here are Belinda (right), Jacqueline (middle) and me.
Still Saturday afternoon: After the BBQ I had to head off to church. I knew the freeway going from Leucadia back up to Oceanside was going to be packed, so I took the coast! Can I just say that I am so extremely blessed to be living in a virtual postcard!
Sunday: Once again, there are a few pictures for today (hey I gotta make up for rest of the week somehow)
Sunday morning - 8am: Need I say more! It's 80 degrees and I am not even getting any major sun in the apartment! Time to start baking cookies, hahaha.
Sunday afternoon: My new bed set! My other one was about 2 years old, and it had stains and upon me trying to wash the bed spread, I put it in the washer and dryer, but it completely separated all of the padding in it :( Go figure I try and say a little bit of money instead of just taking it in for dry cleaning, and I end up having to buy a new set.
Still Sunday afternoon: I love this picture! I honestly think this is one of my favorite of Hunny! It does not need any explanation...enjoy
Sunday evening: So remember me saying that I was baking cookies? Well here they are! I made them for a friends birthday (which was Saturday) as well as a semi experiment. Mom and I are going to be having some bake sales to help raise some money for the Survivor Crop in October, and I wanted to see what these cookie cutters did. These cookies were a bit too heavy, but I have some smaller flower cookie cutters and I think they will work out perfectly to make cookie pops!
So pretty much that was my weekend. Super busy and next weekend, I'm helping Bill and Holly move up to Temecula. Am I excited? Kinda, sorta, but I am NOT looking forward to the scorching heat of Temecula

July 5-10

Here's my week:


July 5th: My poor feet! I wore the cutest heels to the STP concert on Saturday, but man-o-man, they killed my feet! I have 5 blisters and my "ring" toe on my left foot feels so wierd. Its like I have something wrapped around it.



July 6th: Well today I have officially lost 50 lbs! I still have some omre to loose, and I really want to loose them soon!





July 7th: Just got done working out. This WILL NOT help me loose the rest of the weight, but darn it was yummy!




July 8th: I got a scrapbook kit in the mail and it had instructions to make pop-up cards. My sponsor kids birthday is this month as well, so I made her this card. It's super cute and is sparkly too :)



July 9th: YEAH ME! I went grocery shoppong and remember to take my own bags! I was able to get everything I bought in them, so no plastic bags came home with me. I even took my old plastic bags to the store for recycling. Go green!


July 10th: So tonight Terry and I went to Crusin' Grad! It was so much fun! There are 3 pics on here for today:
The clouds as I was heading out to Oceanside to pick up terry. They look like small cottonballs.

My favorite car that I saw on Crusin' Grand. There were so many, but this was my favorite of all!


GASP!!!!! I wore a dress out in public! I actually felt like a grown up (weird?) but comfy in it.

July 11th: There have been so many spiders in the apartment complex and this web was right outside my door. I love looking at webs. It is amazing what a little creature can get done in 1 night and that it can stand up to things flying into it. God is amazing!

Harry Potter and the Half Blooded Prince

So a group of P-1's (friends who listen to the Mikey show) are all going to the Harry Potter Preview on the 15th.......THEY ARE ALL SOLD OUT! So it is looking like I will be seeing it later than everyone else.

Oh well.

I'm officially 29!

So it's been about a month since I was last on here, and on my burfday (hehe) I made a promise to myself to get back on here at least once a week and start journaling and posting pics :)
Well last week was kinda a crazy one. I had to do inventory again (it's now a quarterly thing up in Los Angeles) and granted we were able to get it all done in a single day...I might have to go back up and recount some things. The person who is supposed to be up there to "watch" over the guys, come to find out, has not been up there in 2 weeks!!!! He came up the day before to get ready for inventory. I was not a happy person.

But it was a short week at work since we had the 3rd off...YEAH! I made a 4th of July cake and it turned out super cute! I wish I had frosted the whole thing in chocolate frosting so you would be able to see the fireworks better, but now I know for the next time I make the cake.



And just like every 4th of July....(side note: one year when I was working at the veterinary clinic, I asked for the 4th off. The office manager, Terry, not the same one listed below, asked me why. I told her that it was my birthday. She got all excited and asked "Your birthday falls on the 4th of July this year?!?!" I couldn't help but burst out laughing. And now back to the blog already in progress) I celebrated my birthday! 29 years old. I cannot believe it! Last weekend I had a major pity party for myself, about not being in a relationship, not married, and no more kids. I got this book called "God is Your Matchmaker" and it is making some sense to me. I know that marriage is a gift that He doesn't give to everyone, but I have that yearning to get married, or is it something I'm just telling myself I want. I don't know, but I know God's got it all figured out (let's just hope He starts showing me soon what He wants me to do to move things along, lol).

For my birthday, my mom and I went scrapbooking on the 3rd all day at a Freedom Crop at our favorite scrapbook store, Ever After. We were there from 9 am to 9 pm and I actually got a lot accomplished. The store owner allowed us to have a bake sale there to help us raise money for the Survivor Crop we are participating in in October. We raised $107.00! The owner said that we could come back 3 more times in the next few months to raise more money...WOOHOO!


It seemed like a total sign as to what I was going to do for my actual birthday. On the 4th, I went and saw Stone Temple Pilots! This was the first time in 8 years they were back together and were touring. So for them to be here on the 4th , I was meant to go! They were fantastic!!!! Terry and I have had a crush on the lead singer ever since they first came out (about 15 years ago). Scott Weiland is still just as sexy as ever and we had incredible spots to watch the show. We were about 15 feet from the stage! I bought some super cute shoes, but man they totally killed my feet! I ended up with about 5 blisters! So the shoes won, but it was all worth it!






mmmm...Scott Weiland!

OH, and for my gift to me...I signed up for surfing lessons! This is something I have been wanting to do for the longest time, and I finally feel like I'm in decent shape and feel comfy enough to be in a bathing suit around other people so I figured, why not! I am signed up for them on Aug 22 & 23. We will see how things go with that :)
