Wow----June already?

So yes, I know I'm in trouble and haven't posted in well 6 months! I'm sorry---things have been so very very busy,,,,but I'm learning more and more that is just what life is. So what have I been up to: It's hard to think about everything that has happened. I've been cleaning out my garage and a bunch of stuff this weekend from my parents house and wow- it's amazing how you lose track of time and what happens when. I'm finding stuff from when I was 5 years old---other pictures and items through elementary and middle school. Tons of things from high school and college and everything that went along with all of those years from FBC Moss Point--GA's, Acteens, Fuge Camps and VBS, to FMCBC - to mission trips, student life, then all of the FCA events, Happenings and so much more. ! Wow- it brought back so many memories. It's been a fun journey looking back but I'm even more excited about what now. It's not a secrete that the past couple of months have been very difficult. God been active and moving and providing such hope through it all. I've known life is short- but goodness I'm seeing it now a nd it's time move on.

So to catch up here are a few pictures of the past couple of months and then we will quickly move to the here and now.
Thanks for all who support my friend Dan. Please continue to pray for there family as there are still moving forward with everyday life without Ady. Southern Belles remember Adyson Cheramie!






Greater things are yet to come----I've sang it, said it, written it, facebook it, twittered it, and will still believe it. Here are two of the quick shots for Christ City Church and the amazing journey that God is doing in the Birmingham area with them. I've been so excited that God has allowed me to travel a little bit back and forth to the events. The first was Good Friday- and WOW! It was amazing! God is up to something huge and I hope I can continue to be apart of it. The whole idea of the church is transforming. Be Christ in the city as a church sums it up and it just happens to be in Birmingham. As many people as why Birmingham- it's the Bible belt and there are hundreds of churchs and a lot of them are doing great things. It needs to be thought of as why not Birmingham? Chrity City desires to be the church --a group of Christ following believers and live life outside the walls of a building but in a needed community. TO BE CHRIST! It's exciting and gives me so much encouragment, hope and passion to reach people. Either there or in Mobile- God is unleashing something Great and I beleive and will live as there are greater things are yet to come!


Please be in prayer for Christ City Church as the developing days are still in progress. God is working out a lot of details about the who, when, where, how and why's.


So with all the traveling back and forth to Birmingham and Jackson it was noticed that Bertha (the Pilot) wasn't going to be the best item for me to make the travels with. She perfers the streets of Mobile and short distances. Not road trips at 3am! Considering a lot of trips are held at crazy times---it was better for the pocket book and the highways and my mom's mental health that we trade Bertha in on a newer model. Goodbye 2004, Hello 2008 Toyota Highlander. I haven't named her yet as we are still getting to know each other, but we are doing that pretty quickly. Only a month old to Tiffy, and she has been faithful for two thounsand miles! (Good thing, I didn't do the 12k lease) She has already made a trip to Birmingham, several to MS and FL- been to funerals, birthdays, graduations, about to head to a wedding in Jackson.
SO those are really the old pictures I have for the past six months- kinda sad but I really don't take pictures at the office. I should have earlier this year as that is where I slept, ate, and lived for two months when we bought Targeted. Thankfully we sold!
Anyway- so that sums up the past couple of months....now I will try to do better with postings.

Guess who was chosen? CC was one of a number of Mobile companies were named to the Inc. 5000 list of rapidly growing businesses released this week. Guess this shows a a few of the reasons, I'm so far behind on the blogging world and everything else. I'm a little busy with work. Excited for different reason over the next couple of weeks as my position within the company will be changing some to allow me to work with people more and build the relationships that is needed. Please continue to pray for the company, leadership, my position and part in the team. Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say Rejoice! Trusting in not my plans, but His! As always I need your help!

9-11

I guess I have been in the reflecting mood as I continue thinking back and seeing where we have been and yet am now. Sometimes it makes me proud and then other times I just hang my head in shame as we could have done more. I could have done more.


Anyway, another time to remember has occured this past week. 9-11.


It was intresting to see on friends facebook as they ask do you remember what you were doing when you heard the news? YES! It was my senior year of high school, I was an aid in Mrs. Baxter's computer editing class. We were watching channel one news when it happened and they made the annoucment. My first though- MY BROTHER IS FLYING TO NEW YORK THIS MORNING~~ I immedatly ran out of class in her office and was trying to get my brother and couldn't. I tried my mom and couldn't reach her either. Even as I type this, I have the emotions running through me. After calling for what seemed like a million times, I had to go to another class. They called me out of the class into her office, my mind thinking the worse as I ran there. It was my mom crying saying everything was okay. Donny didn't go! He cancelled the trip late lastnight as he wasn't feeling well. He was suppost to be in the buildings for a meeting! But he is alive and okay in Jacksonville! I was so thankful to hear those words, but yet had to hear his voice for myself. So I kept trying to call him- let's just say everyone in the family and his coworkers were trying to call him b/c they knew where he was suppost to be. However, God had other plans, I was thankful for that time we talked more so than ever before. I think my sister hugged him tighter for all of us that night as she in Jacksonville with him. Oh the memories! God also had it planned for me to do a mission trip that Decemeber, in New York. The sweet memories of that trip, as we prayed with the families at the memorial. Meet with the fireteams and on and on.




Here are a few pictures I took last August of Ground Zero.




Now I have a dear friend Steve, who celebrates his birthday on 9-11. This year though not only has he always severed many as he was my youth minister at FBC Moss Point. He now serves again in the Amy and this year he celebrated his birthday in Iraq. Praying for you Steve! I'm so thankful for the men and women that fight for our freedom.

Me and a sweet lady, after the storm. She hung on during the storm to the train after she road out of her house in the refrigarator.
Memories of August 2005! Seems like yesterday but then again so long ago. I'm thinking how the time has past and the healing that has given. Family are rebuilding. You can still see the damage as you drive through the coast and even down my street. However, people are different and they will always remember. Everyone has memeories of this storm. You have images you picture, smells you remember, feelings sometimes you still might feel. Some remember and are still dealing with it more than others. I'm thankful of the time and healing that has past and looking forward to seeing the future as it continues to rebuild.

It's not a hidden fact I don't like to wait and well I've done a lot of it over the past two years, but I'm so glad I'm seeing God's hand work throught it. Wednesday night I was able to go to Glory Revealed and had an awesome time of fellowship and worship. The service was wonderful!!If you haven't heard of Glory Reaveled, check out there website, www.gloryrevealed.com. It's the word of God put as worship songs to make it easy to learn, site and worship through. It's been a huge part of my life as this is there second CD, and I've almost memorized all of the scriptures on the CD's. Anyway, Great things are yet to come and I'm super excited about DNO.
