I drink Crystal Light a lot now.

So wow, did y'all see American Idol this week? (Bailey I think you might be the only person that will care to read this part!) It's getting so good! Everyone left is talented, so there is no telling who will get kicked off each week. I thought for sure Jason was a goner (I don't like that word, it looks like it should be pronounced go-ner). But no! He wasn't even in the bottom two. Crazy. Now, I'm rooting for Jason to stay on each week, mainly because he's an Aggie (he is talented too, but not the best, in my opinion). I definitely think David Cook should win. He is stinkin good! He sings well & puts together amazing music to go with whatever song he picked. I'm afraid that David Archuleta, who sings well but is boring (but you all know I like rock music a lot more than pop anyways so he's just not my style), will win JUST because teeny-boppers have unlimited texting & go nuts for him. Poo. Either way, I'm sure David Cook will make a CD, & I'm so buying it!

I used a lot of parenthesis in that paragraph.

God has been teaching me SO MUCH lately. I think I can say that He has grown & refined me more in this past year than ever before. I have a better understanding of His character & His Holy Spirit & a better grasp on what it is to hear from the Lord & obey when He speaks. Of course, like always, the more you learn, the more you realize you don't know, & I can only hope that He continues to move like crazy so I can look more like Jesus. I'm simply amazed that He finds me worthy of all He's doing in & around me. That's the part that is just GOD - I'm NOT worthy, at all. I'm sinful & fleshy & icky all over. But God's grace is HUGE & Jesus's blood covers me. & for that I am so thankful!

That's all for now. I'm sleepy so I need to go do something. SEE YA!

Hey Courtney! I loved the verse in your last post. wow. I don't really watch Idol, but I have plenty of other reality tv guilty pleasures :) aka- The Biggest Looser, Survivor, The Hills, John and Kate Plus 8! Anyways, I'm excited to hear about what God is doing in your life. I needed to hear again that He is at work and changing us to be like Him and His grace is all we need. Have a great week!
