He Wants More Praise

Give Him some praise, y'all. The project that has been in the back of my mind at all times since Christmas is d-o-n-e. My deadline is tomorrow and my documents have all been sent in. It is out of my hands. My computer is not going to explode, causing me to lose everything. I'm not going to get appendicitis at the last minute and miss my deadline. Satan tried a few tricks, but God squashed him. God is good. God is faithful. God equips. God is the only reason I can accomplish anything at all because honestly, in my own flesh I am lazy, obsessive over minute details that leave me frozen, and a chronic procrastinator. All I want to think about now is going here in 28 days. Now I'm off to the gym because if I'm going pale, I'm at least going fit.

I've been praying for your project, Amanda and I DO praise Him for your work WELL done. Now don't argue, I know it is done well!

I am praying for your very special time in 28 days and for you to look better than your wedding day...how could you not look better with that joy in your eyes that comes from love and a little boy.

Enjoy the rest of the week, Girl! Procrastinate all you want, but do it with a heart of worship...'cause He is good!

Congratulations! I have no idea what you've had to work on, but I'm still giving praise for having that 'done' feeling (graduation last weekend). He is sooo good!

And P - STINKIN'- S - this place is absolutely beautiful!!! Where in the world is it???

And I've been working on the tan aspect of things while I've been at home for a bit (St. Simons Island, GA) so I'm glad to know one of us is working on the 'fitness' aspect. My body thanks you! Heheeh

Good job, Amanda! What a relief! I have no idea what your project was, but I am very happy that you have finished it! (Especially with having your busy little guy.)

I'm glad you have a nice trip to look forward to! You definitely deserve it. (Seems funny to say this when I don't really know you :) No matter where it is you are going, I'm sure it will be awesome! I LOVE water!!!

I agree... Praise God!

Congrats Amanda! I know how huge this is and how hard you have been working on it. I'm proud of you friend and I can't wait to participate in it when it comes out.

Congrats on being done! And it looks like you are visiting the perfect place for some post project RE-LAX-ATION with your man!

kittyhox said...

Oh, it's such a wonderful feeling to complete a major project.

So pretty! Eastern Mexico? Your little one will have so much fun in the sand and surf! (If you're taking him - not sure.)

I'm counting the days to our vacation in one month and two days!

Yayhoo!

Kelly said...

My first question (Where is that?!) was quickly overtaken my my second (Can I come too?!?).

Congratulations on a project finished and a job well done. I'm always reminded of that Amy Grant song at times like these: "If there's anything good that happens in life, it's from Jesus."

Mindy said...

I must have not known about your project but congrats on finishing!
The place you are going looks BEAUTIFUL! Have a fabulous time!
I wish i was going there in 28 days =)
Looks like a tropical paradise.
