Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope that you all have a great Christmas spending time with friends and family! It's so hard to beleive that it is already Christmas! It feels like yesterday when it was summer time! Time goes by so fast the older that I get! I am looking forward to spending time with my family during Christmas!!

So, my christmas present to myself this year was a new car!! I really enjoy it so much! It drives like a dream! I got a 2010 Cheverloet Impala! I always said once a chevy girl you will always be one. I looked at other cars but I just feel in love with this car! It's the first big purchase that I have made on my own! I am becoming a big girl. So now in the new year I will have car payments every month.

This year around christmas is hard on me sometimes. It reminds me of those that I love that have passed. My great grandmother, I miss her so much! All of the Reeves would get together at her house every christmas eve! Those are memories that I will ever hold dear in my heart. My grandpa, Mack Reed, how I miss him too! He always loved christmas so he could be with his family! I remember getting my barbie convertable hot wheel car when I was little. I loved that car! I loved my grandpa so much! I know if he was here today, he would be excited that I got a new car. The first thing he would do is look underneath the hood to make sure it was a good car. He would asks if I got a good deal. I miss his smile. I will have to eats lots of sweets this year! Grandpa had a sweet tooth expecially around christmas!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas! Don't forget the real meaning of Christmas! It's not about all the presents and lights. It's about celebrating Jesus's birth! Merry Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas..

Well readers.... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas every where you go.. I am in the Christmas spirit now.. I put up my Christmas tree on Saturday.. I am really enjoying my first Christmas in my new place..

I saw the lights at bellingraph on Sunday night! They were so pretty. The weather was nice and cold too. It felt like Christmas. They were playing all the Christmas music too!

I need to get some Christmas shopping done. I haven't not got any of my presents yet. Well, I did get one thing for my sister but that's all. I always enjoy Christmas getting to spend time with my friends and family. It always makes me happy. They are what keeps me going some days.

Well, I am keeping it short this week on my blog. My brain is still in information overload at the moment. Today and tomorrow I have CPE classes that are all about taxes.. Fun stuff. Well, I hope everyone has a great week!

Being content and thankful..

Well, I know it has been a long time since I wrote the last blog. My computer crashed and died. So, I got a new computer during black Friday! Yeah I know I was one of those people stand in a long line early in the morning but it was worth it.
I have been doing well, I guess. Nothing much has happened since my last blog. I have just been working and doing little things in between work. I can’t believe that it will be Christmas soon. I don’t have any of my Christmas presents yet. My computer was my Christmas present to myself. This year has gone by. This time last year I had a lot on my mind. I can say that things are better this time than last year but I still am not where I wanted to be.
This past week was thanksgiving. There is so much that I am thankful for. Sometimes in our life we get so overwhelmed with the thing that we don’t have in our life that we forget to thank the Lord for our blessings. God has truly blessed me with the best friends in the whole world. They have been there for me through the good and the bad. There have been days that I would call them and say I just need to vent and I just need you to listen and they do. There are times when I need them to meet me on a Friday night because I don’t like staying at home on a Friday night by myself. I couldn’t have been blessed with any better friends in my life. My best friend Erin is across the world right now and through all that she has going on she finds time when I call her to just listen.
This morning in Sunday school, Mr. Napp showed a video that really spoke to me. It was on silence. How there are so many times that we don’t make time to just be still in the silence and listen to God. I’ll be honest with you. I don’t like silence at all. I feel alone in the silence. I feel as if no one is there for me and I feel incomplete. This year living myself I have had my good days and bad days. I have had days that when it gets too silent in the house that I will just turn on some music.
This week as hard as it will be for me, I am going to sit and be still. I know that if I do sit and be silent that the Lord will speak to me and show me that there is nothing to be afraid of. He is never going to leave me alone; he is there with me even in the silence. Until next week I challenge you this week to take time out this week to just be silent and allow the Lord to speak to you.

So Thankful...

Well,it's been a busy few weeks but I am thankful for every blessing in my life. Football season is back so that means fall is just around the corner. I am so glad. Fall is one of my favorite season's of the year it's not too cold and not too hot, it's just right.

This week is my first week that I have to do a budget. I had mentioned I think that I am taking the "Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University." I think it is going to teach me a lot. It's going to help me see where I am putting all my money and help me to save while I am single. I know that one day there will be more than just me that I have to support if the Lord one day blesses me to have a family.

This week the Lord has shown me that sometimes we just have to give it all to him. I have to stop trying to do it all on my own. If we rely on our own strength then we are going to fall every time. I am still writing my letters to God. They are really helping me. God is so good and faithful. It's the small blessings in our life that sometimes we do not see. My Jesus is always there for me and I can go to him anytime I need him. He love for me is an unfalling love. There are so many times that I let him down but everytime he is there with his arms open wide. He is a great God. His plans are always greater than the plans we have for our life. We just have to trust him and know that he knows what's best.

Letters to God..

Sometimes life can be difficult and you feel like you will never see the light at the end of the tunnel.. You have days that you wonder why you have been put to go through things in this life. I have days like that. I wonder why the Lord allows me to go through difficult times. What is he try to teach me? Sometimes it may be for us to realize that he is the only one that we need. He is the only one that will always be there no matter what. If it is 3:00 in the morning, you can't sleep and need someone to listen to you and hold you while you cry. Jesus will be there. He promised he will never leave us nor forsake us. I love my Jesus so much. I may think at times that life is not fair, when will it be my turn. You know what though, if we sit around dwelling on when it will be our turn we will never get anywhere. I have realized the more I dwell on it, the more I become bitter, I get upset and don't want to do anything.

I think that these past months the Lord is trying to teach me something. I am not really sure what he is trying to teach me but I know that I can trust him. He always has our best interest at heart. The other night I watched the movie, "Letters to God." I cried and cried. It was a movie I will never forget. I have decided that I am going to write letters to God. I am not going to put them in the mail or anything. I will probably put them in an envelope though. Sometimes I feel that writing helps me so much. I will be honest there are days that I won't pray to God simply because I am not sure what to say when I have been through more than a girl my age should have to go through. Nothing bad, just emotionally things that are difficult.

So... I am going to start writing my letters to God tonight. One of my favorite songs on Power 88 right now is: No matter what. You should look it up and listen to the lyrics. My favorite part of the song is the beginning:
"I’m running back to your promises one more time, Lord that’s all I can hold on to, I gotta say this has taken me by surprise, but nothing surprises you. Before a heartache can ever touch my life, it has to go through Your hands, and even though I keep asking why, I keep asking why,

No matter what, I’m gonna love You, no matter what I’m gonna need You, I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain but if not, I’ll trust you, no matter what, no matter what."

Lord, I give it all to you. Help me to trust you and know that you always will provide. You love me so much! Help me Lord to realize that you are the only one that I need. That when the day is done and I lay my head down at night you are right there with me. Remind me of your promises.

I hope everyone has a great week. Just remember that everything happens for a reason and that Jesus is always there to listen and hold you when you cry.

Such as time as this...

Well, it has been almost a month since my last blog. My aunt told me it was about time that I post a new blog. So, I think she is right. Not much has been going on in my life that is exciting. I go to work and come home and find time in between to spend time with friends and family. There are days that if I didn't have my friends and family I don't know what I would do. They are what keeps me togeter sometimes. When I may be having a bad day that I am down, I call my dad and he usually makes me feel better.

There are season in our life that are difficult to understand why. August 6th I will turn 23 this year. I had always wished that I would be married or engaged at this time of my life. All my friends I grew up with are in a relationship, married, having kids. It's hard at times. I keep my head up though because I know that the Lord has a plan for me. He always has. He knew before I was born, the day I would get married, the day I would meet that special person. Everyone always tells me it will happen when you least expect it. Quit looking Savannah and the Lord timing is always on time. It is easy to hear but to make myself trully beleive it is hard sometimes.

These past few weeks I have really been listening to Power 88 more. I have been trying to feel my head with pure and happy thoughts. I would always listen to country. When I look back I was only depressing myself even more. I was listening to stories about love. That was my problem I wanted those things and I knew that it wasn't my time. I have tried these past few weeks to put a grip around the fact that right now I just need to be in love with my Jesus. I need to spend some quality time with him and understand that he is the only one that I need in this life. He is the only one that can complete me and meet all my needs.

A husband would be nice one day but right now I just need to focus on my savior. I need to find out who Savannah really is. I remember so many times that I was in a relationship that if the guy liked football then I started liking football, if he enjoyed golf then I liked golf. If yellow was his favorite color, then I would wear yellow shirts. Silly things like that because I wanted to be apart of that person's life and like what they liked. When in reality, I needed to just be Savannah and do what Savannah likes to do. I think what has really hurt me after a breakup with someone is that I was so devoted and loyal to them that it always hurt when I broke up with a guy because it felt as if a big part of my heart was gone.

One of my favorite verses in the bible is: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kids, becuase you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. perserverance must be finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not laciking anything." James 1:2-4

I hope that everyone has a great week this week, always remember that you are never alone in whatever you are going through. The savior is always with you in every part of your life through the good days and the difficult days.

Time goes by fast when you're having fun..

Can you believe that tomorrow will be June 1... Where has this year gone? I feel like just yesterday it was April still. A lot of good things and hard times have happen this year, but through it all I have learned something that I can apply to my life.

I am still enjoying my job. I never have the same day twice. I enjoy having a challenge sometimes. Living in baldwin county is so much fun. I can go just about amywhere. I feel like I never stay home though. I usually get home from work in the evenings and either go to books-a-million or stay home and watch a movie. I like staying busy though, it makes time go by faster.

Sometimes I sure to miss being in college because I had summer break. Now that I am a working woman, I don't get those anymore. I have the weekends though. I will be spending some at the beach this year you can count on that. That is if the oil doesn't come our way. Well, I better finish enjoying the rest of my day off.

Oh how he loves us..

So I feel like this month has gone by so fast.. I am still enjoying Baldwin county. I enjoy living on my own. I used to not like the quiet but now it's peaceful. I have plenty of me time. I have learned that it's when I get lonely I need to pray and spend time in God's word.

Today at church, the Lord really spoke to me. The speaker said, "We don't just need God in our life but he needs to be our life." I needed to hear that. So many times in my life I just go through the motions of church. This week I am going to try to pray more and look for opportunities to share.

I have a new song that I will be singing all week.. " He is jealous for me,Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,And oh, how He loves us so,Oh how He loves us..." Jesus longs for us to love him. In my life so many times, I want to be in control of certain situations and not give it to him. He wants us to give him all our worries to him and just have faith that he will give us strength to get through the hard times.

So whatever you are going through just know that he is there for us and he just wants us to trust him and give it all to him.

Verse for the week: "Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you. For everyone that seeks finds; and to him who knocks , the door will be opened." Matt. 7: 7-8.

Just take a deep breath...

Hey readers.. Well, I am still alive I have just been missing in action lately. I have been busy at work. At least tax season is over so I have my life back again. I have longer weekends again. I went to the beach this past Sunday! It was really nice to just get away for a little bit. The beach is where I go to just let go of the worries and stress in my life. This year has been a good year so far. I have started my career and living on my own now. I like it, it gets lonely sometimes but overall I enjoy it. Friday will have been a year since my Grandpa has been gone. I miss him a lot some days. I know he would be so proud of me for all my accomplishments though. He loved his family so much. I hope that one day I can have a man as strong as he was. I want a love like my grandma and grandpa had. Love like that is so hard to find now days.

Call me old fashion but I want a man that is going to seek after me. A man that puts value in me and adores everything about me. I want a man that is strong and that loves Jesus as much as I do. Someone that can listen to all my problems and tell me I am beautiful. I could go on.. but I think you get the idea. I know that that type of man is out there. I know my prince charming is out there. I don't know where he is right now but I know that it is all in God's timing. I just have to have faith that maybe he is not ready to show me him yet. But when the time is right I will know who he is. My dad always told me that sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. I believe that to be true. I have had my share of boyfriends, heartaches and breakups in my life. But each one has made me a stronger person.

The hardest part for me right now is the waiting. I love being in love. I love sharing my life with someone special. Doing things to show someone that I value them. I just have to know that right now is just not my time for love. Jesus is making me a stronger woman. I am learning that in this life time he is the only one who will never leave me no matter what..

Well, enough of my rambling on.. I hope that you all have a great week! Remember that there is always a reason and purpose for everything in life, even when we may never see it.. Love ya'll!

He has always been faithful!

Sorry it has been so long since my last post.. Well, a lot has been going on with me. I started my new job which I am really enjoying. I am still learning everything and will be for a while. I enjoy everyone that I work with though. I am moving this weekend to Loxely. I will be only 15 mins from work which I am so excited about! This hour and a half can get old very fast. I am not looking forward to the packing and moving part. It always takes a while to get everything the way that you want it and finding everything. It will be nice being around everything though. I won't be far from shopping and the beach!

This year is going by so fast already. I guess that's good. I truly believe that the older I get the faster life goes by. I get so busy sometimes that I don't stop and realize all the small things in life that matter. One day things will slow down.. I hope so at least. 2 more Saturdays of tax season!!

Verse for the week: "So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised." Hebrews 10: 35-36. So many times during the week I get so busy that I forget why I am here on this earth and that is to Glorify my Savior. He is so faithful even when we aren't. If it wasn't for his grace. Thank you Jesus for loving a sinner like me. He has never left me yet. All the hard times in my life he is always there to remind me of his love for me and he always is there to listen.

Trust Christ in all things! He knows what is best for us even when we don't see the outcome..

How Great is Our God!!

I know that the Lord answers prayers. He's time is always on time even though at times we may not think so. A few weeks ago, I accepted an accounting job. I will be working for a CPA firm!! I am so excited!! Back in November I interviewed with the firm twice, but did not receive the job. However, a position came open and they offered me the job. I will probably move to Baldwin county eventually!

I feel as if I am starting a new beginning! I have always liked change. It's when you have to trust the Lord! After searching an entire year for a job, there were times when I wondered if the Lord was listening to my cry. I know that he was. He was just waiting till just the right time. He knew that if he made it easy for me then I would not trust in him that he would give me all that I would ever need!

Snow day!!

So, it snowed in Mobile, Alabama!!! The last time it snowed I was in the 4th grade. Everyone did not want to believe the weather man. I woke up at 7:30 and did not see any snow.. I thought oh well.. Then at 10:00 it started to snow! It was so beautiful!!

I have started reading a book it's called "Search for Significane." It is a really good book so far. Lately I have been trying to keep myself busy. Valentine's day is hard for me this year. I know it's just another day, but it's hard when you don't have anyone to share it with. I think I am going to go to the store today and buy me a valentine's basket.

I am very excited about having monday and tuesday off work. I think monday I am going to do some shopping. Thursday I have an interview. Hopefully I will be myself. I will have to let you know how it goes.

Hope you have a great weekend!

First day of February..

Happy first day of Feburary!! This is going to be a long month.. All month long I will have to see valentine stuff everywhere and in every store.. I am strong though. I have the best valentine's.. That is Jesus. He has never failed me, he is always true, he always listens to me, always there, and always protects me.. I could go on... I am in the stage right now where I enjoy just writing. People have different ways that they cope with things. Mine is through writing things down. It has always helped me get through things. Sometimes trials are difficult, but I have found that it can only make you a stronger person in christ. I have gone through some hard times in life, but I always came out a better person.

Sometimes the best we can do is take one day at a time. We do not know what tommorow holds. Why worry about what tomorrow holds, today has enough troubles of it's own.

Learning to trust...

Today is Wednesday.. Half of the week is gone. I have not done much this week. I have been trying to take it each and take one day at a time. Sometimes we have to do that. Not try to plan for the future, because sometimes our plans for the future may not be the plans the the Lord has for us. I know that here lately I have realized how great our God is. So many times I have let him down, but he is always faithful. He has never failed me yet. I know that there have been many times that I have failed him, but he still calls me his child and loves me still.

This week I reflected on many things in my life. God has given me such a great family that loves and supports me. They only want the best for my life. Sometimes because they love me they let me learn from my own mistakes and are there when I finally find my direction. Today I was reading a devotion and it was talking about how even the little things in life can make a huge impact in your life. I think that is so true. Sometimes what we look at as not important, our Savior thinks that it is.

A question that was in my devotation today was this: " Is this decision going to make me clsoer to my goal, or further away from it?" I think that is something I am going to ask myself this week when I am faced with a decision in my life. I just wish I had read this devotation months ago. But everything happens for a reason, we just have to trust that the Lord is faithful and knows what is best in our life. He will never let us go...

A start of a new beginning

Sorry it has been a while since I have posted a blog. It has been a stressful month for me. I am doing better. I said this year I was going to try not to stress as much. Sometimes that means taking out things that cause stress. It may not be easy to do but in the long run I will be glad that I did. I have still not found an accounting job but I have had interviews. I know that I have just have to keep trusting my Savior. He sees the big picture and knows what is best for my life. I have learned in these past few weeks that being in God's will is very important. Here recently I have seen him work in a powerful way. Just yesterday the Lord showed himself to me. I have had a hard week, I had went to Olive Garden yesterday at lunch. I have not seen my first college roommate in a few months. Guess who my waitress was? Lauren my first college roommate. I feel like the Lord knew that I need to see her yesterday. I can tell other times that the Lord has shown how powerful he is. I know that life sometimes may be difficult, but I am going to keep my head held high because I know that everything works out for those who love the Lord. I will leave with one of my favorite verses..
" Do not be anxious about anything but in everything, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I found this poem and I want to share it with all my readers..

How can I use the New Year
To better serve my Lord?
I’ll read my Bible every day,
And be more in accord.

I’ll find new ways to serve others;
I’ll love my neighbor, too.
I’ll focus on "give" instead of "get"
In everything I do.

I’ll forgive the people I’m mad at;
Angry feelings I’ll discard;
I’ll try to love my enemies,
Even though it’s hard.

In the new year, I’ll lift people up,
Instead of putting them down.
I’ll fill my heart with love and joy,
And never wear a frown.

I’ll let go of my worries;
I’ll put it all in His hands;
I’ll repent and try to sin less,
And obey all His commands.

These new year’s resolutions
Are difficult, at best,
But there’s something I can do each day
That will put my soul at rest:

I’ll love my Lord with all my heart,
With all my mind and soul,
And if I do that essential thing,
All the rest will be in control.

By Joanna Fuchs

As this new year begins I want to trust my savior more. I worry all the time about little things that are out of my control. I have to remind myself daily that the Lord knows what is best in my life even when I don't understand.

This year I am going to help others and be there for those that need me.

A new year is here!

I know it has been a while since I have wrote. I have had a lot of things going on. I still am searching for a job. I have a job right now but I am just doing clerical work right now. Hopefully soon I will find a job in accounting. I have went on many interviews but I have to trust that the Lord has the right job out there for me.

As the new year begins I am going to start things the right way. I need to exerise more. I don't need to lose weight but my back bothers me a lot. Another resolution is to get a job in my field and maybe have a place of my own. I am blessed to be able to have a great family so that I can still live with my parents.

I enjoy bringing in a new year. It's a start of something new and to look back at where you have been. I had a difficult year this year and a happy year. I lost my grandfather which was very hard for me. I still have days that I miss him so much. He was very important person in my life. I see my grandfather in my dad. I think that helps me sometimes. My dad has always been there for me. One of my last new years resolutions is to live life to the fullest and to write more on my blog. Happy New Year!!
