Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

what really matters

Oh my! By now, you have headed over the Christopher Family blog and discovered we have come up with a name for baby Christopher who is already in our hearts and one day we cant wait to have her in our arms. If you havent, stop reading and click here!

Now that you are back, we hope you like the name..but onto other things

STOP HEAD OVER TO HUBBYS BLOG AND OFFER SOME ENCOURAGING WORDS!

Right now, satan is attacking a lot of my family members and he needs to stop. If you can, please pray for my family and friends who are hurting and struggling. It makes so sad to see others whose hearts are hurting. I am doing great. I dont like to see others sad. It makes me feel so uncomfortable to even watch movies like this. Especially ones that make fun of people who are different..Did you see the movie Radio? Boo Hooed the entire time..God help Michael if I am ever pregnant..Heehee..I warned you I had random thoughts!!!

Still waiting on that new blog, Im sure I will love it when its done.

I have tomorrow off, which hopefully will include dragging stuff down to the garage in preparation for the garage sale in less than 2 weeks.

Also, I have been tagged by a few people. If you are one of them, please raise your hand so I can participate

Church last Sunday, we studied the 2nd chapter of Ecclesiastes- I found this to be one of the most interesting, most relevant pieces of scripture

Ecclesiastes 2
Pleasures Are Meaningless
1 I thought in my heart, "Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good." But that also proved to be meaningless. 2 "Laughter," I said, "is foolish. And what does pleasure accomplish?" 3 I tried cheering myself with wine, and embracing folly—my mind still guiding me with wisdom. I wanted to see what was worthwhile for men to do under heaven during the few days of their lives.
4 I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. 5 I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. 6 I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. 7 I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house. I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. 8 I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem [a] as well—the delights of the heart of man. 9 I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.

10 I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my work,
and this was the reward for all my labor.

11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.



So I ask you, whats important to you? What do you find in this scripture??

I rarely discuss scripture on this blog and I dont know why. I'll be thinking about this!!!
