Today I'm thinking......

Good morning to you!
I'm thankful for all of the wonderful Veterans out there...and all the current people serving our country! You are very special people.
(i'm having trouble typing today!! ugh!)
Last night at church choir practice we worked on our Christmas music some more! I always love doing our Christmas program at church. It is so much fun. The program we do every year is "The Gospel According to Scrooge"! :)
Also last night, Mr. Tim and I stopped in Wal-Mart to get a few things. We really didn't have anything to make for our lunches. While in Wally Word....we passed by a huge Glade display. It had all the Christmas candles and air fresheners. It was sparkly and beautiful. sigh. It took so much for me to resist the temptation. I was strong and walked on by. (side note....Tim did tell me I should get something...but something inside of me wanted to wait!)
I got some pretty apples! I am looking forward to having one at lunch today! :)
Oh, you know how I'm getting the cute Shutterfly Christmas cards? Well, I was just thinking to myself...wow, 50 cards! I'm not sure I know that many people who want a picture of me, Mr. Tim and Miss Maddie on a Christmas card! haha! That is very generous of Shutterfly.
Anyone want a Christmas card from the Shepards?!?! ;)
The Lord has really been working on me this week. I have been drawing closer to Him...and sure enough He has been drawing closer to me. Just like His Word says! I'm doing a study by Elizabeth George in the book of Philippians.
I'm so thankful for that this week.
I have lost a few pounds the past few weeks and I feel great! I am just desiring to be a healthier individual and treat my body good! woot!
My birthday is at the end of this month!!!!
I can't wait for BLACK FRIDAY!
Tonight I'm doing laundry. (for real this time!)
This has been the most random post in the history of Blogger. :)
Thanks for reading it!
I hope each of you have a marvelous day today. It's gonna be beautiful.
God is so GOOD!
love,
Amanda

I love random posts! I think 50 is a lot too, but I think we'll send them all out, or close to it! I like having extra just in case.
