||everybody's doing it||

i'm recovering from the modern day plague {aka the flu} and so haven't been in the mood for much the last few days. only certain movies are worth my time {christmas movies are pretty ok}, reading only enhances the problem, food...wait, while i run to the bathroom, and talking is not necessary... so, what can i do....BLOG {but about nothing important cuz my brain is not fully functioning today}...

Fashion Trend//Boyfriend Jean

We have Katie Holmes to thank or hate for bringing this 80's trend back into existence. I personally love it! I jumped on the trend wagon and got a pair recently and think their quite possibly the most comfortable jeans ever.

What do you think? Love it or Hate it?!

President's pooch tells the media what he thinks...

best story of the day... oh the irony

i just can't stop smiling as i think about the First Dog taking a bite out of the media. thanks Barney for defending your master {dog's really are man's best friend} and letting those reporters know what you really think.

don't worry Barney...soon you will be back on the ranch in Crawford, livin' the life.

Are you kidding me?!?!?

So...apparently American's are the most uninformed and {sorry to say} stupidest people on the planet. We jump on trend wagons and have no idea what we're talking about. I love that so many people in the U.S. and around the world {for that matter} are interested in this election...BUT seriously...know what you believe and why...
God help us!


Here's another one that my friends from OZ told me about that will get your blood pressure up a bit. CAUTION :: Let me just apologize for the ONE bad word in this video. The rest will change your life, I promise.

is there such a thing as too much OBAMA?! apparently his campaign doesn't think so. he has an entire channel {yes, the OBAMA channel} on the Dish Network and then apparently he thought flooding the airwaves with an infomercial would be the best way to get those undecideds.

my thoughts...if i was an undecided voter i'd be pretty sick of OBAMA and MCCAIN...but mostly OBAMA due to the very strategic publicity of the Democratic candidate.

don't believe there's overexposure. here's what i encountered in just one day in the District of Columbia.

not to worry i'll make sure to make it fair and show you the MCCAIN sightings as well...

6 days and counting...
political rhetoric, you will soon be gone and it'll be time to put action to all those fluffy words. I'm ready for that utopia you've been describing for almost 2 years! What?! It doesn't exist?!?! Gotcha...

:::::::::::10 days

10 days from now i will gladly hear the end of the following words/phrases: change, yes we can, country first, maverick, joe the plummer, and many others. don't get me wrong...i'm an avid follower of political {especially presidential} campaigns and have very strong opinions regarding who i think is best to lead. but seriously, this one has been TOO long. it does appear that there is quite a vested and passionate interest in this 2008 Election but i'm afraid its hype will accompany quite a let down come nov 5. i mean...what on earth will cnn, fox, and msnbc have to talk about?! oh...they'll think of something.

whatever happens nov 4, GOD will still be in control, HE will still be the master of the cosmos and the ruler of world affairs. and whatever the outcome...the church gets the opportunity to show LOVE through our words, conduct and action. i'm grateful for divine establishment of government but my HOPE is in Christ and his earthly body, the church.

have you ever had those moments of perspective that hit you in the gut or maybe across the face {depending on how stubborn and self focused you are}? well, tonight i had one of those. i jet planed again today to washington and was feeling a little sorry for myself..cuz i'm a bit tired and have a lot going on. i'm behind in my reading for my grad program due to travel and ministry responsibilities. annoyed with my whining?! apparently so was God. as i was trying to read a book i must write a paper on by the end of the week...i got contemplative. it happens quite frequently on planes for me. i've heard people say they love to climb mountains to get closer to God, so when i'm flying i must be really close to God. anyway, i began to see what a difference a year makes. i thought back to my life a year life is significantly different. its a year next week since Tennyson went home to be with the Lord, i wasn't in school a year ago, and i wasn't responsible for nearly as much in ministry a year ago. i sort of started whining again {via my journal} know like lament psalms David would have penned and then all of the sudden i looked up...there he was. a guy probably my age. barely having enough strength to walk to the front of the plane. his body obviously afflicted with the most abominable disease, cancer. he was pale, skinny, and bald but proudly wearing a yellow livestrong bracelet. i felt hit in the gut...perspective. my whining was embarrassing now. i sat in my seat quietly crying and praying for a young man who's name i'll never know...but who left a lasting impression on the girl sitting in 3A.

i'm in portland this week for a pastor's conference...actually getting ready to head to the airport to head home before i leave again for washington. the conference has been great. pastor larry stockstill had two incredible messages that EVERY pastor should listen to and apply. all the messages have been impacting and i believe we've all received a great impartation. My uncle, Wendell Smith, just preached the he{double hockey sticks} out of us with one huge message on FAITH.

i'm a little sleepy and excited to sleep in my own bed for a few nights...and i'm super pumped to be with my awesome small group tomorrow.

ok...i guess this was more of a really long twitter message then blog post. but its my blog so i can write whatever my little heart desires.

and since i'm a tad bit "sleepy sue" i couldn't think of a single title except, "ok."

ok...i'm out.

"It's On"

im sitting in the national prayer center in washington dc {specifically, on capitol hill} and feeling the weight of the world. today is one tense day here on capitol hill. the economy seems to be holding on only by a thread and we're waiting and more importantly PRAYING for congress to stabilize, what seems to be, an uncertain future for the monday markets.

these are the times we remember...GOD is solely in control. government is essential...but not our source, GOD is!

read pastor ken's blog to follow all that's going on in our nation's capitol...RIGHT NOW.

Song of the Day :: Queen//Under Pressure {dedicated to the "do nothing" congress, cuz they've got to "do something" by the end of the day} ;)

after a long day in dc...

...i can relate dad, this is how i feel after a long day on the hill too.

happy anniversary...

so, yesterday was my cousins 8th anniversary. we're all in washington dc this week and i thought i'd show you in pictures how kirsten and i spent HER anniversary...

we first ran into obama...kirsten appears to be getting sucked into the "obama nation"...but she actually just didn't want to die.

i, on the otherhand, had some choice words for the obamanator.

we got some lunch and did some fun downtown shopping...

kirsten was doing some "simplygrovesque" shopping at West Elm while i got bored and read...

we stopped at starbucks for the third time...kirsten got yelled at by the barista. oops...they don't like it when you make ANY modifications to your drink.

we then spent the evening enjoying the various monuments and tourist spots of dc...

we gave some honor...where honor was due.

then Evangeline caught up with us and apparently wanted to eat kirsten's delicious hair...

good times celebrating Kirsten and Shane's Anniversary...hey guys, wanna do it again next year?! ;)

oh...and Shane was there too...

||oh agassi||

this is why i can't get my blasted paper written already...

...or maybe its just cuz i'm so annoyingly unmotivated.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

i miss being bored.

i started work on my Mdiv {master in divinity} this semester and i'm beginning to wonder what possessed me...

...i'm tired of reading already.

i just keep reminding myself how accomplished i'll feel. who cares...i just miss watching nonsense t.v. ha!

campaign fashion...

there are many reasons to be interested in the presidential campaign... but if politics isn't your thing; no worries, cause the fashion being sported by Cindy McCain is enough to keep you interested. she's sure a fashionista...i love it!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::the CHANEL J12 white ceramic watch she wears is my fave:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

||model pose||

this is what happens when you ask my nephcuz {made up word for my cousin who's more like my nephew} ethan to pose like a model...

he obviously learned these moves from his dad. ;)
