Everyday brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes and dance!

Emerson once said, "Insist on yourself; never imitate...every man is unique." I hope to be that way in every breath that I breathe, in every song that I sing, and every dance that I dance... My dance has taken me on quite the journey over the years! Right now I am living in Terrace, BC with my best friend and husband Matt and my little sister Heather... we're better together... I work at the hospital as a RN and am working toward my nursing specialty certificate in Critical Care... a journey for sure!

I had taken a leave...

"In Luke 15:17-20 a young man who has badly insulted his father 'comes to his senses'. It is a remarkable turn of phrase, because it implies that we are never truly ourselves or at our best when we are far from God. It implies that when we leave God we take leave of our senses." - Herb Sawatzky

How often do you have 'bad' days? It seems that I have had more than my share the last while... not anything in particular really just an overabundance of sleepless days/nights, probably some PMS, and unfortunately too many days where I haven't spent the time with my Papa... all of the above contribute to a bad day or temporary insanity but I think that the last one is the clincher... we are not ourselves when away from our Papa... this seems to be the turmoil I have felt... I KNOW the truth - and I am pressing into that - singing and praying - HE IS MY JOY - MY ALL IN ALL.... and that is the purpose of my life...

My cousin posted the above quote on her facebook... and I just about glanced over it... my Papa is so incredible the ways that Publish Posthe speaks to me! :)

and so... I am officially no longer on leave of my senses! ;)

I was supposed to work day shift today but here I sit at 0235am in the ER waiting for the next patient to come through my door... not because I worked so many hours but because I swapped one of my shifts... Serge doesn't really like nights - and I wanted to go to church.

I am so glad that I did. Church was amazing today - what a great word - difficult but great! Dealing with spiritual sight and how we allow the things of this world to crowd out what should be our greatest love... how we choose to set our idols of this world above our relationship with God... how we shut our own eyes... wow did that ever hit home for me... I've been so tired and just blah that I haven't gone to the word for the food that I needed to revitalize myself - I feel so foolish that I have allowed myself to fall like this... to not make HIM my priority and instead placing myself in that role of being number one.... I feel ashamed to say that - but repent I must... and to my friends I apologize for without HIM I cannot be a good friend...

could this be me?

SO? what do you think? Do you think that this could be me? hmm.. ok maybe I don't look quite like her... but I am feeling that I might like to be her... she's (some random) travel nurse in Hawaii!

I have been thinking that it might be kind of fun to go work in Hawaii or some tropical place during the summer while Matt is not in school? now of course because I am feeling like it I want to go now... like this year... but maybe even next year? hmm... something to pray about! What do you guys think?

when you fall...

'When men fall down, do they not get up? When a man turns away, does he not return?' - Jer 8:4

So I have left the blogging world... not really intentionally... in a way I had fallen or turned away... so it is time to return, to get back up!

Life has been busy and the verse seems more appropriate and applicable to more than just my blogging life... it seems as though there are many things in my life that I have turned away from... so with renewed resolve - I am back... I dont' think it is going to be easy but I am going to try again...

Today I felt very blah - I woke up feeling 'blah' then went to the hospital to write my midterm (for my BCIT course) and then came home... had a bath and then had a nap... woke up kinda meh... and now am at work! It's a decent night - started out busy and now things have settled...

Tomorrow - I am going to sleep then try to go for a run... part of this new resolve... hmm... can I do it? I dont' know but I am gonna try.
