David and Goliath

David didn't force his Goliath moment. He brought lunch and God used him. Yet, I continue to try to force God's hand because I want something dramatic to happen.

I'm sitting at JP's in Longview - my favorite coffee shop. I came here so I could catch up on editing and uploading some recent photo shoots. So far, I've been reading and people watching. I just had to share a quote from the book I am currently reading. The book is titled Confessions of a Good Christian Girl, but this quote is actually found in a book called Shattered Dreams. Anyway, it really hit me the other day, and I'm just now getting around to sharing it.

"It comes down to this: God's best is only available only to those who sacrifice, or who are willing to sacrifice, the merely good. If we are satisfied with good health, responsible children, enjoyable marriages, close friendships, interesting jobs, and successful ministries, we will never hunger for God's best. We will never worship. I've come to believe that only broken people truly worship. Unbroken people - happy folks who enjoy their blessings more than the Blesser - say thanks to God the way a shopper thanks a clerk." -Larry Crabb

Confessions of Jennifer R. Collier

Since this blog's address is actually, I thought it would be fun to make a few confessions. So here is a personal look into the inner workings of my life. Please not that this is stuff that I wouldn't normally admit to people, but I'm putting it on the world wide web for everyone. :)

1. My favorite thing to listen to on the radio is Car Talk. I really don't care about the car maintence tips, they just make me laugh.
2. I could eat Chipotle everyday.
3. When I am in the car (not listening to Car Talk) I sometimes free style rap to myself.
4. I tell kids that they are my favorite, but in reality I tell it to all of my students.
5. In college, my roommate, Kathleen, and I had a trash compacter. The problem with this is we never felt the need to actually empty the trash since it would continue just fitting in the bin. Once, we went 2 months without taking out the trash. Not a good idea.
6. I get jealous when other people's facebook status's have more comments than mine.
7. Growing up I always cheated at the game Monopoly. You definitely should never allow me to be the banker.
8. I don't floss on a regular basis.
9. I have a horrible habit of trying on 3 or 4 outfits in the morning, then throwing all the clothes on my floor. This causes my bedroom to be a huge mess.
10. I am only putting this so I have an even number. I thought about stopping at 4, because that is my favorite number, but I couldn't help myself. I just had too much to confess.

It feels good to get all that off my chest.
