OK, so, I have been extremely busy lately, but with good things. I decided that my 09' resolution would not be to lose weight and shape up this year; it would not be to make better grades; it would not be to be a better friend, or daughter, or sister and so on. Although, these are all great things which I need to work on; I decided that my only resolution would be to GIVE MORE in every way! I want to give more of my time to God. I want to be a servant and give more of my time, hard work, and money to certain causes that will all bring him glory. I started last year by deciding to go to Costa Rica on a missions trip once again. I am not stopping there. I will not get in too deep right now, but I will keep you guys updated on how this works out and what God is revealing to me everyday that I wake up and take a breath! First things first, I am doing a shoe drive starting March 1st and ending April 30. My goal is 100 pairs of shoes! These shoes will be shipped all over the U.S. and many foreign countries to orphans who are in dire need of them. I mean could you imagine not having a pair of shoes, having to walk through snow with no shoes, having to walk on hot rocks, glass, pavement, nasty germ infested earth with no shoes. Please spread the word!!!! I am also collecting socks and shoe strings! Everything has to be new, but it doesn't have to be name brand stuff. I have heard that you can even get shoes with the price tag still attached at the thrift store! I personally am committing to buying at least 5 pair of shoes! This is a GREAT cause. You can go check it out HERE! Like I said, I know there are not a lot of people who read my blog, but the people who do can spread the word! Please let me know if you would like to help. I am starting to collect shoes now to get a head start. If someone wants to donate shoes, laces, socks, or money...please contact me (205) 643-2699 at ANYTIME!
