He blesses me with B.

Frustrated, confused and sad at how tomorrow’s events are supposed to pan-out.
I asked B to pray for me tonight. And just now, over our phone call, he prayed for me. Without hesitation he said “I’m praying for it right now. You ready?”

Here’s what has me so flustered about tomorrow:
Teaching Sunday School for my youths (at my church in central SD). 9am-Noon
A California wedding reception for an old friend of mine (in Escondido). 1:30-5:30pm
A baptism for one of my junior high girls (@ Mission Bay). 2/3pm
A funeral/Memorial service for one of my best friends dad (downtown SD). 4pm
A Sherlock meet up with other fans (Seaport Village–downtown SD). 5pm
And church in Escondido at 7pm.

Not only do I not know how I’m going to physically do this, but emotionally. The funeral definitely has me reeling. I’m one of those “I cry everything in movies” kind of girls. The loss of someone that I actually knew is really hard.

Yes, I believe that he was saved and I shouldn’t be sad. It’s just the sadness of the whole family that breaks my heart. I don’t like seeing others in pain.
We lost one.
He gained him.

Kingdom minded, right?
Right.

No more crocodile tears, Shawna.

Stupid vertigo

​I haven’t had a spell this bad in a long time.
I couldn’t sleep last night.
Up and down to the bathroom to go hover in hopes of throwing up just to get the feeling to go away.
I have anti-nausea medicine, but it tends to make me more light headed.
I’m supposed to fill a shift at Dominos today too.
Why do things always happen on busy days?
I guess I’m being told to slow down.

Well, it was bound to happen.

Just going to leave this here.

Last week was my best friend, Aaron’s, 25th birthday as well! I spend way too long on the trip down memory lane just to find a picture I edit for his birthday last Tuesday.
All to end up (unexpectedly) see him later that night.
You see, he likes to just show up in SD without any notice.
But it was so needed.
Our friend, Jacob’s (pictured on the utmost upper left) dad had been battling brain tumors—just had a surgery less than a month ago. Well, he had slipped into a coma and spent days without anything (according to his DNR wishes). The nurse had given him Tuesday night. So Aaron being in town, even if it was only to sit and drink with Jacob in the living room was more than enough.
Fred made it all the way until Friday night before going home to the Lord.
Anyways, just thought I’d get this out of my system-to some degree.

Birthday snippets.
From last week at Slater’s 50/50.

Two of my brothers couldn’t make it, so they sent pictures.

Man I have good looking friends.

That sunset tho.

DIY Paint-Sample Fish Scale

Step 1: Take many much multitudes of paint samples.
Step 2: Buy frames (thrift if you can), Tacky Glue (adhesive—the brand doesn’t really matter. And the double sided tape was a back up; a back up I never needed!), and a 1.5” hole punch.
Step 3: Hole punch ALL THE THINGS.
Step 4: Make a horizontal line with your adhesive across the (included) picture frame insert.
Step 5: Adhere circles in varying patterns.
Step 6: Let dry and trim edges.
Step 7: Place insert and backing onto original frame.
Step 8: Admire your ombré-ish fish scale art!

A few youths (& staff) sang me Happy Birthday.
This hasn’t happened (cake&all) in about 6years.
I’ve been at camps every summer and forgot how heart warming it is to have people I love sing this song as terribly as possible.
Tim, the guy with the lighter, went through youth ministry with me in junior high and high school. He went away to college and then came back and joined staff. It’s so nice getting to see him every week in the ministry where we became friends.
