Moving Away

Monday, November 28, 2011

Author: Isiah Williams

I moved to Lubbock last year to go to college at Texas Tech. I took one year off to work and save in between high school and college, and I lived at home with my parents and had everything taken care of for me. You would think that in that year I matured and learned a few things, but I still felt really scared to go away to college. Even though Lubbock is only a few hours away from home, I was still terrified to leave. I registered a little late for my first semester, and there wasn’t a space in any of the dorms for me. I was worried since I thought that living in a dorm would be a good transition for me. Since there was no space, I had to get an apartment on my own, and figure out how to set everything up. The first thing I did was connect my electricity, and then I searched  dish tv lubbock and hooked up my satellite TV. Then I moved on to phone and internet service. Before you know it, everything was settled and I was on my own. I couldn’t believe how easy it was!


A Colorful Winter Day

Saturday, November 26, 2011

If I was a robin
I'd fly away
Looking for
a warmer day

If I was a sparrow
I'd take my song
To a warmer climate
To sing along

If I was the sun
I'd put on a display
To promise the start
of another day

Not all days are dark
and dreary
The sky shows colors
to make you cheery

Reflected in the
Oh pretty sky
make the colors stay

Paint with a brush
wherever you go
For such as I

Thankful Thursday - Happy Events

Friday, November 25, 2011

If we do not take all our accumulated time off by a certain time of year we lose it then we begin to rebuild next year. They pay us for 75% of it but to my way of thinking, that is a loss, so I asked for vacation time and was fortunate enough to get it!

Chris and Mari purchased their wedding license last week and I had truly hoped they would get married this week. The appointment book was full all week, but Chris left them a message to please call him if anything became available.  When they called we were forced to rush around  so we could take the the time slot which just became available. He had not had a chance to get his hair cut so he advised me not to post his pic on Facebook. He is very funny about that, but this is not Facebook, right? He gets his haircut nearly every month because it grows so fast!

She laid her cell phone on the bannister on speaker so that her mother could hear the vows as they were recited. Her work is slow in New York so she could not afford to come but when money becomes a little less tight they plan on traveling to New York so they can have the big wedding of her and her family's dreams. I am just so glad that I got to be a part of this one.

I am so blesssed in that from the moment I met Mari I knew she was right for my son, and when I see the way he is with her and the adoration in his eyes and hers, my heart does flip flops. They first met on November 27th. Some say it is too soon.

1. Do you think a long engagement is important?

2. What advice would you give the newlyweds?

Forsythia Leaves

Saturday, November 19, 2011


My dear friend, Jeannie came over the other day and wanted to see my forsythia bush. I told her that it had grown so much since I last pruned it a few months back that it followed me into my front door when I was talking on my cell with her one night. She laughed and said she had to come and see this amazing bush.

Well once she and I finished this bush, she whacked and I stacked, it was just a fraction of the size it once was. As I stacked the cut limbs in the wood pile out back, I saw one tiny limb with some pretty variegated leaves and rescued just it from the pile. I placed it in a vase and found out the vase had not been waterproofed so I had a puddle and two fallen leaves. I took the two leaves and placed them on a beveled mirror. I examined the colors blended from a light lime green to a bright purple...Isn't God amazing? The leaves were as pretty as the flowers once were on these bushes! BTW I did get up the puddle.:-)

Sunlit clouds

Thursday, November 10, 2011

God's glory shines upon the sky
In sunlit clouds as they roll by
In birds that sing and birds that fly
Up in the clouds that hang so high

I know that God must exist
I feel Him in the grass he kissed
With soft dew in the dark of night
And in clouds of yellow and white.

Nature by God

Threatened with execution for defending herself

Sunday, November 6, 2011

She was raped repeatedly as a migrant worker by her employer. After fighting off the last attempted rape by him she was then gang raped by nine men throughout the evening then arrested. She is facing execution. For more about her story read here. For information regarding fighting for her appeal read here.

Everything human in us should cry out in this young woman’s defense. We applaud those who do not allow themselves to be victims, but in this country they want to execute her. There is an amnesty plea going in on her behalf and we can make a difference today. What if this was you or your loved one?

Hunting and Stalking

One of my favorite past times is bargain hunting, so I am quite the "sports" person as not only do I "hunt" down bargains, but I "stalk" the sky so this was a very rewarding evening. I picked up a book a co-worker needs for just $.20 and some lovely sky shot reflections.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. This post is linked to weekend reflection. Take care and God bless!


Ahhh it's an "A"

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

The letter A is first;  beginning the alphabet, beginning the names of my first born son then my first born daughter. . . Anthony, Aimee`, both names are defined as meaning beloved. Often companies choose to begin their names with "A" to be found first on the internet or in the yellow pages.

Some of a writer's favorite words begin with the letter "A"; adjectives and adverbs, both breathing life into the noun and verb, adding color to the story; awesome, astonishing, akward, absolutely, adorably adept at adapting to alliteration.

What is the best grade one can award an ardent student?
