just waiting

I have a class purely devoted to photoshop and other computer programs. I am enjoying it thus far.
We listen to Beck while clicking away. He's good for computer work, but I don't understand a word he says.

Joe and I have registered for wedding gifts at Target and Wal-Mart. I really enjoyed that process with him. We walked through the stores. I pointed, He scanned. We are a great team.

I actually spent the whole weekend with Joe. We went home for some premarital counseling and then registered for gifts. On the drive back, we played racquetball in Troy. I lost really bad...but I feel that I am getting better. we then ate at fishtales and played balderdash with the Jackson kids (and I won by a landslide twice). It was a great weekend.

back to whole class thing, there is a guy here in the class that claims that he likes to change seats every class time, but really, there is this cute blond girl that he is trying to sit next to. the teacher made a comment one day about him changing seats (the day he actually sat to the cute blond girl) he said "yeah, I don't like to sit in the same place all of the time". fast forward 2 class days when a guy is sitting next to the blond girl. when Mr. seat changer walks in, he gets upset because some took "his" to the cute blond girl.
What a goof he is.

A series of thoughts occurred to me about a week ago that have kept me pretty occupied. This matter is this; I was thinking about Joe and how much I love him, and when we talk I enjoy expressing my love to him in words, and after a while I feel like I am repeating myself even though my heart wants to say more. In the same manner, as I have been praying lately I have been returning to speaking how wonderful Jesus is. I feel like I repeat myself in my prayers even though my heart wants to say more.
Given the two scenarios I began thinking about what they have in common and the thought occurred to me that the more time I spend with Joe and the more I get to know him, the more ways I find to tell him and show him that I love him. In the same way, the more time I spend with God and allowing him to speak to me, more of his character is revealed to me, and in that I have new ways to talk with Him and share my love and thankfulness. I grow most in my relationship (whether it is God or my future husband :0) ) when I take the time to know the character of who I am relating to, and in that I discover new aspects of their personality, I then have new way to show my appreciation, love and admiration.

Merry New Year

It has been a very long time since I have updated, and I guess that is due to the fact that I have been with all of the people who read this... and they already know what is happening in my life. Maybe that is not such a good reason not to update after all.

Since my last post I have gotten engaged to the most wonderful man in the world, watched my oldest sister get married (to a pretty awesome guy at that), Had a wonderful Christmas with the family/fiance/family to be, turned 21 and ate at the same Mexican restaurant twice, shot off bottle rockets out of joe's back pockets as well as catch the field on fire twice.

It has been a good break in my opinion. and now it is time to go back to school...for just a few months though.

It is 145 days until Joe and I get married. I have things to do...
