Unconditional Love

Today I was on my way home from school and turned on Moody Radio. I don't know who was speaking or exactly what he said, but it was something like this. (I added a little to pertain to myself) God loves us the same today as he did yesterday, and the same as he will when we are with him in heaven...He doesen't love us more on the days that we read our Bible. He dosn't love us less on the days when we argue with a family member. His love is unconditional. The dictionary says that unconditional means... not limited by conditions. (http://www.dictionary.com/) I love that...God's love does not come "under certain conditions". If I did this or if I did that. You know what I'm saying??? It's good to know that God's love is not something that I have to earn, or something that I have to continue to work for. I'm glad its not a points system!!!! Because if it was Manda would be in the negative numbers.!!!I have always known that, but I guess today I really thought about it. GOD'S LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL!!!! I hope you can understand this.....I have read it over and over and can't determine if it is clear. Love you all!!!!

Valentine's Day

(This was not the cake we had.)

Valentine's Day!!!!This Valentine's Day I was not as tempted by food as I thought I would be, but don't get me wrong.....I was tempted. And kinda gave in!!!....Don't hurt me J.LOL!! Yesterday I went to my dads and ate supper with him, his girlfriend,her mom, her daughter, and her granddaughter.(Did you get all that!!) We decided just to eat in, and dad went to Katy's Katfish to get a chicken coupe!!(is that how you spell it?)If you don't know what that is....it's a big thing of chicken fingers, hush-puppies, and slaw for the whole family. We also had baked potatos with ours. It was good, but the whole time I ate it I felt like DIRT!!!!!!There was a little devil on my left shoulder telling me to go ahead and eat it, I could just work out more today. And besides.....It's Valentine's Day!!On my right shoulder there was a little J (my First Place Leader) telling me...."There's enough carbs in that meal to last you a week!!!!"LOL

Then a giant heart shaped Peanut Butter cake was layed on the table!!!Dad cut everyone a piece. As he handed me the cake I thought about just saying no, but I gave in. And then I had a cup of coffee with it.(that was prob. the best thing I had all night, exchanges wise)L and J, I don't know why I am even going to say this, but Mrs. Black ( I hate not saying people's name, I'm confusing myself) made the cake, and I didn't want to hurt her feelings!!!!I know! I know!!

Anyway, no one has to get on to me. I feel like dirt, but am going to work out more than I usually do today. And I have to now that I've told ya'll. I have worked too hard to lose my 10 pounds, and I am not going to let one meal set me back!!!!

On the up side LOST was awesome last night!!!!I am not even going to try to explain what happened, I would be typing all day. (And you still prob. wouldn't understand it!! Who does? I don't!!!LOL)And my dad sent me flowers!!!How Sweet!!!Love you all!!!!!

Prayer Request

I would like everyone to remember my mom's family in your prayers. She just found out this morning that her first cousin, his wife, and their two kids were killed in a car wreck yesterday. Mom's cousin found it on the internet.... so at the time they don't know much. Please keep them in your prayers. Thanks!Love you all!

I'm Lost!!!!

Last night I spent the night with my dad. We first went to Lowe's to get some lights for the house he's building. In the middle of our shopping experience I heard him say something I never thought would come out of his mouth....." We have to get home by 7:00, Lost is coming on tonight." If you know my dad you know he's not much of a TV person. The only thing I have ever seen him watch (when he is in control of the remote) is the news and ballgames.

I was excited! I have never seen Lost before, and boy am I lost. I have no clue what's going on. But...now I'm hooked, and I can't wait untill next week!!!!But...I like Charlie's new "dead" haircut!LOL!
