Day 6!

I am behind!!! O well we will start again from here!

Day 06- Favorite super hero and why

I really like Batman! He is just an ordinary guy (no genetic altering) who wants to rid his community of evil! He just shows that change can happen with one person doing the right thing! I love the saying God does not called the equipped, He equips the called! I need not be afraid to make a difference in my community because God will guide my path! Maybe He will let me wear a sick costume too and drive a cool car!!!

Day 5!

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to

My favorite place in the world with one of my favorite people!!! This was taken a Devil's Den state park in Arkansas!! I wish the picture showed how beautiful the mountains and the colors are!!! My momma lives in Arkansas! I sure do miss her!! Some days 3 hours a day is WAY too much!

Day 4!

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn't have.

This is a hard one!!! I have this bad habit of not letting people in! I like to keep relationships on the surface. I think why would any one want to see the messy! I like my little world that I have created and allowing people in my world is just well that can be too much! I have been praying for God to change my ways and as always He answers in ways I do not approve!! He sent into my life the most wonderful person that makes me incredibly uncomfortable. In one short visit she calls me out and she makes me be honest!! I swear she speaks the Word of God in the most profound ways! I wish I was more open but a habit is a habit right?????

Day 3!

03- A recent picture of you and your friends

These are pics of our friends Dave and Lisa in Arkansas! Lisa and I grew up together. We had English together since 7th grade!!! Sad day we were not friends from day 1!!! She thought I was weird (and I was) and I thought she was a snob (she wasn't)! Dave came into the picture when Lisa was in nursing school and I think she picked the best! Dave is great to Lisa!

Anywho these are pics from our mini vacay that we took in august and it was spectacular! We just love these two!!!

Day 2!

WOW Two days in a row! Woo hoo! I need your help to stay accountable!

Day 02- The meaning behind your blog name.

Meet Pootie! I am not too sure how we came up with Pootie but that has been her nick name since day 1! I really like Pootie Marie and Jay's favorite Pootielicious!!!!! I started this blog right after she was born. Surviving was all I was doing! Lindsey was a special challenge the moment she was born and I thought I would never do more than survive! Praise God that surviving lasted only 3 or 4 months! I started the blog to keep family and friends updated but it has turned out to be more of a form of therapy. I will start writing about something negative and as write and edit my perspective changes and my post turns into the exact opposite as what it started! So that is how the blog became "Surviving Pootie." Now I am only surviving part-time! haha

Oct 13th

This time 4 years ago I was trying to decide whether or not to go on a blind date in "The City." I was at a spot in my life where I was open to God's influence in my dating life! I suppose He decided that I gave in enough that He would rock my world. Friday Oct. 13th I drove from Shawnee, OK to the ghetto in OKC. I walked into Rococo's with no expectations and left calling my dad telling him I met this great friend. The date continued to a haunted house and talking till 3 or 4 in the morning. I opened myself just enough to God's influence that He was able to place the most amazing friend in my life. Oct. 13th is so important to the both of us that we do not even acknowledge our wedding anniversary! My life at the time I met Jay was so volatile! I was so unsure of myself and frankly did not think to highly of me! The difference was I stopped fighting God and God was then able to place someone in my life that could love me so unconditionally that I began to understand how much Christ truly loved me! I challenge you to stop wrestling with God and allow Him to rock your world!

Jesus Loves Me!

Question of the day. . .

Who challenges you spiritually? Who in your life makes you want to seek God even harder to know Him more intimately? My answer. . .

I get busy and rush and out of the blue Lindsey will say loudly Pray momma! Every time it just blows my mind that this little miracle can stop me dead in my tracks and tell me I need to pray. This morning I was pulling out of the garage and she yelled at me to pray! So I did. Apparently that wasn't enough so half way to school we had to pray again! Shame that it takes my daughter to remind me to talk to my Father!!!

So. . . . who pushes you???
