I'm back

Wow-It's like I have days when I think I should blog and then I never do it, but I spent the last 1/2 hour reading blogs so I thought I should update my blog. I just finished reading my brother Chris' blog and I was reminded at how blessed I am to have him as a brother. He is amazing. He seeks the Lord diligently and has truly been shown amazing things. When I think of a meek person Christopher comes to my mind. He is in Canada visiting our mom. I wish i could be there, but I think the time just him and her is very good. Christopher I the type of person that you can't help but love----Chris, your so dang loveable!! I hope he's having a great time in Canada. Well, life in Fayetteville is going well. I'm just getting over a horrible eye infection, but it's much better. Thank you Lord. School is out, so I preoccupy myself with work, wedding and house stuff. Life's busy, but I'm loving it. Unfortunately those around me have been experiencing the irritable side of Stephanie (especially JM) . I have so many reasons to be blessed and still I spend time being frustrated. JM and i were talking about it today, and my goal of everday is to overlook that which I could make a big deal of and focus more on what makes me truly happy. I was listening to this lady speak, Karen Wheaton, and she was talking about how when our life is over that little dash -- between the year of birth and year of death is the time of our life. She was saying that little dash is just a dot on eternity and we don't have time to spend it being irritated, frustrated or mad. I thought that was very good point. Well it's late and i must go to bed. Goodnight

AND that dash goes so fast! You'll shake your head constantly imploring and asking God, "Why did it have to go so fast?" Enjoy it! I'm proud of you!

It's so good to read another post. At 20 years old, you are way ahead of me at 20 if you can recognize that the dash is really that short. "Help me Lord to number my days so that I may gain a heart of wisdom." Someone much wiser than I penned that.
