Go Dawgs! Sic' Em!

Tomorrow my Georgia Bulldawgs are playing in the SEC championship. Not only, is it the SEC championship but a trip to the BCS National Championship is on the line. 

There are some striking similarities between this season and the 1980 college football season.                               

Gurshall-- Todd Gurley #3 and Keith Marshall #4

Man, I hope this happens! GATA! Go Dawgs!

Cinnamon Roll Waffles!

Cinnamon Roll Waffles 

Saturday, I made an awesome breakfast treat for me and my mom! It was thanks to pinterest! I had seen the pin for Cinnamon Roll Waffles forever ago and never made them! They are seriously delicious and take less time to make then if you made them as regular cinnamon rolls! 
So here are directions! 

1. take four cinnamon rolls and place them on the waffle iron! 

2. close the waffle iron and let them cook for about 3 to 4 minutes! 

3. drizzle the cream cheese frosting over the top and enjoy!

Verse for Thought

Amy started this new blog segment last thursday called blog for thought and she said she would be glad for me to do some similar posts!

I was reading my James: Mercy Triumphs Beth Moore Bible Study and the first lesson for this week focuses on James 1:19.

Well I hadn't really thought about it but reading this made me realize that I have been getting angry lately, just getting ticked off over little things. It has to do with my unhappiness with still feeling in limbo, but seriously that doesn't matter. I really have nothing to be angry about. I have a great family and I am blessed to be able to live with my parents right now, (even if it feels frustrating and weird). James 1:20 goes on to state that Anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. Anger, for anger's sake doesn't really accomplish anything. So I am going to focus on being quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.

Being present with God.

Being present with God. Yesterday at church the sermon was on being present with God. A lot of time we focus on God’s presence. But the question we need to ask is not “Is God present?” but instead “Am I present with God? I have recently been praying to feel God’s presence in my daily life, but I think I might need to refocus my prayers and in addition to seeking God’s presence first make sure I am present. I am bad when it comes to setting a routine for myself and often do no not spend quiet time with God like I should. I am going to work on that and when I have my quiet time I am going to try and make sure that I am sincerely present in that time with God. Number’s 6: 24-26, the United Methodist Youth Fellowship Benediction says 

I have always loved this benediction. The word countenance means face. God lifts up his face upon you and gives you peace! Wow, what an amazing image that is. God is looking at you, God is present with you, but are you looking back at him, engaging with him? Are you present with God? As I continue to go through this post-college journey and I as I continue to go through life God will be there right beside me but I must make sure that I do not check out on God.
