Sundry Thoughts on a Saturday Night.

Today I learnt a new word: Sundry. It means "various items not important enough to be mentioned individually". I felt this was relevant to all the things on my mind right now. Read at your own discretion, or...your own boredom.
My favorite song right now is "are you gonna kiss me or not?" sung by Julia Sheer. It places tens of thousands of butterflies in my tummy.
I'd be lost if I wouldn't get to see my boyfriend's face on Skype everyday...if even for a few minutes.
I absolutely love reading a good romance novel by -Christian- author Robin Jones Gunn, in bed, while sipping a cup of green tea, waiting for my eyes to fall themselves to sleep.
Being woken up to a thunderstorm in the morning is the best feeling.
It hurts when the woman you think is the most beautiful woman in the world is going through something hard, because the only thing that's running through your mind is that she's the last person who should ever be feeling that way. It's faith-shaking...yet it seems to makes you pray a little harder.
I love love love cleaning. And this is not being said in a sarcastic tone! It is completely legitimate. I especially enjoy cleaning in the middle of the night...not sure why.
I am actually extremely fond of this bowl I painted at a ceramic studio in the city.
a) the bowl is so deep that it's perfect for indulging in Mini-Wheats cereal! And
b) It's so ME. Anything pink and floral is Jenny. Ask anyone. :)
This afternoon I went again to the ceramic studio and created another work of art! I'll show it to you next week!

These last few days, demons have been attacking me. Not physically, but mentally; they have taken over my thoughts. I think things I shouldn't be thinking...and they hurt me. It is so disheartening because I know that no matter what I do I cannot get rid of them on my own, for I am not powerful enough. But I have asked God for self-control, that these thoughts wouldn't consume me, and it's helping. Psalm 91 helps me in stating that "He who dwells in the shelter of the most high will abide in the shadow of the almighty. I will say to the Lord: 'My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.' For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence..." Remember Jenny, God is bigger than the thoughts that enter your mind!
I haven't worked out in over a month. Yikes. Help!
I was going to blog about this the other day, but I'd just like to say that I love the movie Fireproof. It's a Christian flick, BUT surprisingly enough, it's not cheaply made with bad acting. I cried several times throughout this movie too; I guess it's because it's my worst fear coming true. But two hours later, it ends happily...giving me hope.
I'm going to college in the fall and I still have no clue as to what I want to major in. I'm thinking either social sciences or humanities. We'll see. But I definitely already signed up for an accounting class. Phew!
My Alaskan cruise is coming up in less than two weeks folks! And oh boy am I ever excited!
I love my friends...and I am blessed to not be able to count them all on both hands.
The very last of my sundry thought life is telling me that it is bed time. Guten nacht and God bless you.


  1. Where are you stopping in Alaska? That's where we live :) I can't think of any bad places to dock haha. I hope you have a great cruise!!

  2. Hi! This is my second Alaskan cruise actually, and I believe we're stopping in Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, and of course Glacier Bay National Park. I absolutely love Alaska and I think it's wonderful that you live there! Whereabouts do you and your family live if you don't mind me asking? You must love it! Thanks :)
