Addicted to Facebook!!

I know you all haven't seen me in awhile here. I am on Facebook!! I really, really am. It can be so addicting and I am chief addict...LOL. So if you miss me here then just follow the Facebook link on this page, add me as a friend and I will see you there. Not much is going on my way. Still busy with work and family. I went to see Judgement Night in Goldsboro last Friday night and took a group with me and it was awesome to say the least. Powerful play. Everyone who has an unsaved relative should drag them kicking and screaming to see it. There is going to be a judgement and we must determine how we will face that day or night. I left with a strong reminder of just how vast and majestic and powerful God is compared to me. Even when I think I am feeling strong and in control, it is weak and foolishness to Him. How great is His mercy and grace! Things I had given up on, I am strongly reminded that He is not a man that He should lie nor the Son of man that He should repent. I have to echo to my own self that His words will not return void and He will do what He says He will do. In the meantime, who are we, who am I, to doubt Him and run with my own thoughts and my own mind. Remember He said "Let this mind be in you"! Why? Because there is no way of having the mind of Christ, and when He shows us something or teaches us His way we have to be obedient to a point of having a right mindset. Phew!!
Didn't mean to preach this time just got carried away for a moment.
Anyway, I will try hard to update some on this page. Right now the hot news of the day is the prisioners getting released next week. Since I am in the field I am in, I feel for those men and women. Think how society has changed and the statics of going back. That and where do they go? No homeless shelters want them, I know. At the same time I agree that we can't just change the laws at will and keep them in. By NC laws of that day, they have done their time. So that is a hot button item. I will try to post more on that too. If you want to know who is being released then go to WRAL website and there is a listing and photos.

A 55 in a 35

Ok, this is my last, absolute last, rant about the traffic ticket I got. I mean, really I was speeding, I was disobeying NC traffic laws and I should have gotten the ticket. I readily admit that. So why am I still fuming after being stopped several hours ago? Well it is just the thought of having to pay the state and especially this county fees and fines. The officer was nice and he did reduce the ticket for me and I don't even have to go to court, just pay the fines and fees. Yeah that is like $200.00 and maybe that is why I am fuming. I don't know. Its like when you are caught and you know you are wrong but you don't want to face the consequences for it. That is how I am feeling. So I am going to just finish this blog and then let it go and pay the fines and fees. Learn from my lesson don't go through downtown "anywhere" doing 55 no matter how big of a hurry you are in. Especially in Smithfield, NC.
