30 Letters in 30 Days: day one

day one: the best friend ❤

Dear BF

Since meeting you, becoming friends then roommates I have had more fun, learned who I am and who I am not, been challenged, been reminded that I am and can be stupid, drink too much and that you have no love when it comes to vomit, discovered what support is, learned about fashion and what not to wear with a “total outfit,” how to dress a table, what monochromatic is, and friendship means starting where we left off like no time passed at all.

I have seen you married, become a mother, struggle with heartache and kick his ass, support your own life and lifestyle, and be stronger than you ever imagined. You inspire me to be a better mom, friend and woman. You have the best fashion sense of anyone I know – I know this because I have stolen many of your outfits and put them back like no one was there. Your beauty shines in whatever you are doing. You can create awesomeness with anything and design like a star! I admire your independence and strive for my own self worth to model yours. You have the most stupendous sense of wit and sarcasm… it is seriously genius!

I am so thankful for you, your encouragement and love. “Thank you for being a friend.” I hope when I’m 50 as well as 100 we will still be as fantastic as we are today! 

I truly love you!

-Me

Shh, Shh Secret Secret

Lets face it we all have secrets some hidden deeper than others.  In the next couple of days I am going to delve into the secrets I keep, mainly me. So put your suits on we are jumping right on in. 

  •  I am a compulsive eater, an over eater and a emotional eater. 
I have come to terms in admitting that I am a Food Addict,

HI, my name is Stacey I am addicted to food! I want to be clean 

I am talking about this so that other addicts can come forward and share what they are addicted to ’cause everyone is addicted to something, no really you are too. Here are some addictions you may not see:

  •  TiVo (I love mine too)
  • St. Arbucks (as Loswhit calls it)
  • That talking box (or plasma, for you big ballers out there)
  • CNN, MSNBC, and tickers
  • Work
  • Cars
  • Money
There are so many things that replace the Love the God can gives us and if we ALLOW them to take over our lives. I have allowed Food to take over. 
 
No more. No gimmicks. Just me God and a pray and that my amigos is more than enough.
 
SHARE what you are going through, your secret, your heart and your need. You are welcome here.  

Prayer Works, Duh!

I have been praying and praying for a opportunity to meet other Christ Followers here at campus and today God showed up in the form of a classmate at the mailbox. She invited me to her lifegroup and actually is on my team on the Saturday experience at LifeChurch.tv HOW COOL is that! Thank you Jesus…more Glory to you!

How do you like it…?

How do you like being served? How do you feel encouraged? What inspires your heart?

Me…

  • I love lunches with great conversation and friends
  • I love massages and spa dates
  • unexpected phone calls/text messages with uplifting notes
  • “hope your having a great day” on a Kleenex (or any other unconventional scrap paper) on my windshield
  • random visitors
  • hugs
  • great music that makes your heart sing out-loud

What can leaders around you do to get you, embrace you and make you feel needed and welcome?
