25.

Well, today was my 25th birthday.

I ended up having the day off of work so it was a pretty relaxing and quiet day…just what was needed. Then this evening I met up with some of my closest friends for dinner, always a good time.

Here we are, at the start of another year and this idea got me thinking. It is not the year that ends of being good or bad. I mean, a year is simply the time it takes the earth to travel around the sun. Rather, the year will be what we make of the time we have ahead of us.

So…rather than hoping the year is good, I know it will be good because I am going to take action into my own hands. With guidance from Christ and the support of my friends/family I look forward to seeing what the year holds in store…ironically, I will end by saying it will be a good year!

Cheers and stay tuned for stories of my 25th year!

Checking Back In!

Just over a year ago, I wrote a post regarding leaving my job as the Sales Coordinator at Silver Cloud Hotel. The year since then has been a little crazy. I have been working since early in the spring as the Banquet Captain at a golf course near where I live, a place I have worked on and off since high school.

Then, a couple weeks ago, I met with the F&B Supervisor and General Manager at the hotel. Fast forward to last Tuesday when I clocked back in for the first time in a year! Yes, I am back working full time at one of the best places I have ever worked.

Now this time, however, is a little different. I am now working as the Day Supervisor of our restaurant, Nine-0, and Banquet Lead. Essentially I am overseeing day operations within the restaurant, breakfast and lunch services, while also doing work with any meeting/banquets that are in house.

I am so excited for the opportunity to be back at the hotel, I have missed it and have often said that leaving my job there is one of my biggest regrets. Now I do not have to worry about it ­čÖé

This new job is an answer to prayer and I look forward to seeing where it leads me in the time to come.

November already..what?!

Well, it really just hit me…it’s November! 2013 is 10 months down and what a year it has been! I realized┬áI haven’t posted since September, such missed opportunity for me! I am going to be working on setting up weekly posts to automatically post. I will be posting stories from my life, updates, music, etc…

Anyway, there is a random post for you, more soon!

Cheers!

ALIENS

Christians are called to be in the world but not of the world for by Christ we are called (Romans 12). This world is sinful, if we are with Christ we are set apart from the world. So. if we are not of this world but in this world what does that make those of us who are true, confessing Christians? Aliens. We are foreigners living in a strange land.

I was recently listening to Lecrae and his song Aliens came across my ears. In it he, with the rhythmic assistance of Tedashii, uses “aliens” as an acronym.

A – A whole notha kind of folks, kinda slow.┬áBut we gotta go cause the world’s so Ill.
L – Livin’ the life and livin’ it right, and livin’ for Christ and that’s real in the field
I- Intelligent but irrelavent without Christ, it’s nothing but another sin element
E- Eternal purpose, without it this earth is dead and worthless
N- Never stop giving Him props, giving Him praise now until the end of our days
S- Seek Him and please Him and let the people know that they need Him

Aliens! New Creations, new free agents, ain’t signed to sin
What the world do, we don’t do
Cause we wanna do what the Lord does; Christ within our system
Listen our mission’s the Great Commisssion, we come here to represent Him
That’s why we call ourself Christianans, Ha, Let me spit another line
For the Plumbline and the Frontline one time on the front lines
keep holdin’ it down for all the pilgrims
All over the world representing for the bloodline
