It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!!

Its my FAVORITE time of year.   Even the smell of Fall excites me.  Pumpkins, hayrides, apples & leaves falling, sitting on the porch drinking hot chocolate, and most importantly COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!!!!  This is the time of year that my house becomes divided and Brandon and I get "divorced" on Saturdays.  haha!

I read this blog a couple of days ago on The Pioneer Woman's site. Its pretty much describes every feeling I have about football, so i'm just going to share it with you!

We are just a few days away from the most wonderful time of the year. And I don’t mean Christmas.
I’m talking about college football season.

Which means there is hope that temperatures will eventually begin to drop and there will be days ahead filled with twelve straight hours of football and bowls of chips and queso eaten while wearing yoga pants and a Texas A&M football t-shirt.

Or maybe that’s just me.

There is not much better than a Saturday morning filled with ESPN Gameday and rolling your eyes at Lee Corso and cheering on the team you love while desperately hoping the team you love to hate is losing to some unranked team that no one has ever heard of.

But it’s not just college ball. It’s Friday night lights at the local high school and the opening theme to Monday Night Football. It has a way of bringing people together.

And I appreciate that it usually brings people together with plenty of guacamole."

WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inspiration 8.8.12

Many of you know I have been out of school for 4 years now.  I was able to teach for almost 2 years before the economy completly went south.  Since then I have yet to find a teaching job.  I have a wonderful job, but its not what I know I am called to do.  This past week I decided to take a positive approach (because obvioulsy what I've been doing wasn't working) and apply to grad school to recieve my Master's in Elementary Education.  Last night, I read this passage and knew it was meant just for me!! Don't you love God's perfect timing... I know I do, once its here. hahaha.. I am so darn impatient sometimes and wonder what God is trying to show me or what in the world he is waiting on.  But he always has a better plan for me than I could ever have for myself....

Here's your inspiration for the day, maybe this will mean something to one of you!!

My Princess…Wait on Me
Wait on Me, My Princess, My timing is always perfect. I know you’re anxious about many things, and I see your passion for all the plans I have put in your heart. I know that you long to fly, and I see your enthusiasm. However, just as a vinedresser nurtures the vine and waits patiently for the right moment to harvest the grapes, so too am I working tirelessly to prepare you to bear much fruit. Don’t run ahead of Me or try to fly before My plans are complete. Your strength will fail you, and your dreams will wither away. Trust Me that My dreams for you are far greater than you can dream on your own. You will run farther and soar higher if you will patiently wait for the season of my blessing. Draw close to Me now, and I promise that this season of waiting will bring you the sweetest of rewards.
Love, Your King and Lord of perfect timings.
