The Long Awaited Drama Video!!!

Hello everyone!! I put the video together (finally!) and have it up on our website. Please go check it out on the Drama Website.

I'm hoping to put up some posts soon from our vacation, but I've lost our camera with all the pictures. So, please be praying that I find it soon!!! :-)

Update Over at My Writing Blog

Hello Friends!!

I just recently updated my writing blog, so if anyone is interested in reading a small tidbit from a book I'm writing, be sure to stop by!

Also, I'm currently working on getting that promised video up over at our drama blog. We had our dress rehearsal tonight, which went fairly well. However, as our marvelous director told us, "If the dress rehearsal is awful, the performances will be wonderful." The reason being that everyone will go home and practice, practice, practice! :-) So, although our rehearsal wasn't absolutely terrible, it wasn't perfect either. So, I'm praying that the performances will go well, that everyone will remember their lines, and that the audience will really enjoy the evening. :-)

So, just popping in to say that real quick. :-) Thank you to those who have been praying that our performances will go well! They are always appreciated. God has blessed our group tremendously, and I think that it will go well. :-)

In Christ's Service,

Yes, I'm Still Here... :-)

Hello readers who have been so faithful! Y'all haven't left, even though I haven't posted in such a long while.

Life has been rather busy as of late. Having just graduated (hoping to post some pictures soon!) has been a tremendous step in my life. It was so nice to see all the love and support of my many friends and definitely of my family. :-) Now that I've graduated, I can't wait to get my life 'organized' in the sense that I can get my schedule figured out, get really serious about my children's books, and begin volunteering at some places I've been eyeing. However, before I get to do all that, I must wait for one more week. Why?? Because our drama performance is next weekend!!!

I can't believe that this will be our fourth performance! It's very exciting. I will give a small spoiler and say that I get to play a villain! It's been rather fun, I have to admit. :-) Perhaps because playing her gives me some more flexibility to test out my acting skills and to really expand the character more than I ever got with playing the old ladies in the other two plays. In any case, she's been rather fun (perhaps because I get to also use a Southern accent and wear tons of jewelry??).
   This semester we did a fundraiser to help pay for some of the expenses. It's amazing how much money goes into props, sets, costumes, etc. If anyone is interested in helping us out, you can go and check out our SUPPORT US page on our website. We're selling Entertainment books. This little book is filled with tons of coupons for restaurants, hotels, theaters, and even car rentals! If you go online to order, you can pick a book for your state. :-) (Ok, that was my little speel. =D). I'm hoping to get some video up on the website of some drama stuff, but we'll see how that goes. Unfortunately my computer editing program has NOT been working (which has been a huge frustration to me!).

It was a very exciting election this year because I got to vote!!! That was quite an ordeal to go through, but thankfully I was able to cast my opinion among the other folks. Sad to say that the outcome wasn't what I was hoping for, I'll be honest to say. However, I know that God has it all under control, and that this is just part of His plan, whatever it may be- and, believe it or not, that makes me rather excited. Excited to see where God is going with this. :-) Perhaps I'm just weird that way... ;-)

Other than life just going on as normal, there really isn't much else to tell... well, except for something pretty exciting, but I can't say anything about that just yet. You'll have to wait in suspense. :-) However, I won't make you wait very long, I promise.

Please do drop a comment and tell me what you've been up to! I've rather missed hearing from everyone... :-) Although, I have tried to keep up with your blogs if I can, although it has been difficult at times (especially when the internet won't work!).

Hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather! I'm off to enjoy a movie with my sis and a nice cup of hot cocoa!! Yum!
