Thoughts and Convictions, by Sarah Angeline

Happy New Year!!!!!

Mon, 01 Jan 2007 23:11:00 +0000

It is with a fulfilled, yet reluctant heart that I bid a fond farewell to 2006, one of the best years of my life thus far. In 2006 I continued my Bible College education, I met my husband, became engaged, and got married. I moved to Nebraska and became a Youth Pastor. It has been a year filled with tremendous happiness and blessing for me, abundantly exceeding anything I ever expected or desired or asked the Lord for.

My sister also became engaged and married in 2006... and now she and her husband are expecting their first child.

What a wonderul, amazing, blessed year 2006 has been!! What a faithful, loving God we serve. HE is my reason, my purpose, my everything and I am humbled and grateful for everything He is and does and is going to do in my life. Here's looking forward to all that God has in store for 2007!!!!!



Wow! Look who actually made a post!!!

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 18:42:00 +0000

Hello to anyone and everyone who still subscribes to this blog. :) I have been a little out of touch (ok, maybe that's an understatement). I can hardly believe it's been a year since I have posted anything on here! A whole lots happened in the last year. Basically this is how my year went:

New years day- Sister ZB gets engaged
January 5th- I meet Aaron
February 1st- Aaron and I start dating
June 13th- Aaron asks me to marry him!
July 1st- my sister gets married
October 14th- I get MARRIED :)
End of October- I move to my new home in Columbus, Nebraska

That's right, I am living in Nebraska. My husband is the youth pastor for Discover Hope Foursquare Gospel Church out here and we are loving it. We also teach Campus Crusade for Christ out at the college. LIfe is good, God is good. We are busy planning Christmas, working at the church, being newlyweds, all that fun stuff.

My husband, Aaron is a writer and he has a blog too, so you should go check out his stuff. His latest blogging endeavor is http://www.soulsoldier.blogspot.com. So go leave him a shout out.

Loves to you all, I will post again.



Bring Your Child to Work Day

Wed, 10 May 2006 03:54:00 +0000

Today, I brought Eve to work with me because I had some homework that I needed to get done on my lunch break before class tonight. For those of you unaware, Eve is my ibook. As I sit here writing this out when I should be doing homework at the ungodly hour of 7:30am, it occurs to me that I feel towards my ibook the same protective awareness that I would have toward a child I brought with me to work. I am a little nervous about leaving her alone while I go perform my duties even though I know she will be in a locker safe from harm. I am apprehensive about her presence here at my place of employment and I suddenly have a heightened awareness of the fact that you just cant trust anybody anymore.

If I am this protective of my laptop computer, God help my future children.

Bleh

Mon, 16 Jan 2006 00:57:00 +0000

Hi all. I'm bored, so I thought I'd blog. I work full time and I go to school full time, so I always find myself longing for my days off to arrive quickly! And now it's Sunday, my first day off, and I am sooooooo bored. I went to church, I went out to lunch, and now I am watching TV. Whenever I don't have something schheduled to do, I get restless lately. Drives me crazy, because I don't want to be that way.

Well, I guess I'd better get back to relaxing. Ahhhh!!



Precious Time....

Mon, 09 Jan 2006 21:27:00 +0000

This morning, my sister Elizabeth and my Daddy and I went to Starbucks for breakfast & coffee. And it hits me hard, that Elizabeth will soon no longer be "Elizabeth Crumpacker." She will be Elizabeth Harris. And pretty soon she will be moving to southern California to live with her new husband. And pretty soon I won't wake up in the same room as her and hang out with her every night. And pretty soon we won't be able to go out to Starbucks for breakfast wtih our Daddy without first hopping on an airplane.

When I first left home to go to school, I couldn't wait to get out. Now that I'm living at home again, I treasure every moment that I have with my family. I guess being gone for so long makes me appreciate them so much more. And who knows what God has waiting for me? Graduation's not too far off for me, and I promised God a long time ago that I will go wherever He asks me to go. And I meant it.

Seasons change in our lives, God moves us on into the bright future that He has planned for us. It is sacred, yet bittersweet.

Treasure your families and love them well, as long as it is called "today"... We never know what tommorrow will bring.



It's Official!!

Thu, 05 Jan 2006 00:30:00 +0000

On New Years Day, my sister and her boyfriend became engaged to be married. Jonathan asked Elizabeth to be his bride, and I couldn't be happier for both of them. My sister's getting an awesome Godly man and I'm getting an awesome new brother! How great is that? God is faithful.

More details to come.



Merry Christmas!

Mon, 26 Dec 2005 08:27:00 +0000

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Luke 2:10-12
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:20-21

May this Christmas find you closer than ever to the true source of Peace, Joy, and Hope- our King and our Savior, Jesus Christ.



This is the Good Life

Sun, 18 Dec 2005 07:41:00 +0000

I am currently on a little getaway from work, school and immediate family members visiting my best friends Wendy & Michael and their son, my little perfect nephew, Logan. I am eating baked goods, watching TV on the widescreen plasthma TV, and prostituting the neighhbor's wireless connection. (Apparently the neighbors name is Jason, at least that's the name of his network) This moment is perfect. Best friends, food, TV, warmth, high speed internet in my lap.

I love living in this moment.



Wal-Mart's Holiday Policies

Mon, 12 Dec 2005 07:49:00 +0000

As a 45-50 hour per week, hard working Wal-Mart employee, I feel it encumbent upon me to clear up a few misconceptions that ironically, both the liberal as well as Christian media has been passing around. We've had protestors outside my store for a few days this week, saying that Wal-Mart is anti-Christian/anti-Christmas. This could not be farther from the truth.

Wal-Mart radio (the music that plays in the store 24/7 broadcasted from Home Office) has lately been playing a constant stream of Christian themed music. Songs such as "Away in a Manger" and "Welcome Holy Child." If Wal-Mart were really hopping on the politically correct bandwagon, don't you think these national broadcasts of Christian music would be among the first to go? I cannot even begin to tell you how many of my vendors and delivery drivers have asked me in the last week "So, I hear you're not allowed to say Merry Chrismas." So not true! In fact, our cute little door-greeters have been wishing customers exiting the store a Merry Christmas for a few weeks now! Another myth that I've heard this week: "Wal-Mart is now calling their Christmas trees 'Holiday Trees'." Ummm yeah, there are huge banners posted all around the inside and outside of our garden center which are clearly marked "Christmas Trees."

The only legitimate claim that any Wal-Mart hater could make regarding this Christmas is that our theme this year is "Home for the Holidays." There are banners hanging in the store that read, "Home for the Holidays." I'm telling you, that "Home for the Holidays" banner,the baby Jesus Christmas music, and the Christmas trees for sale outside combined with the "Merry Christmas" farewell I receive upon my exit from this vile establishment are all clear indicators that Wal-Mart is clearly anti-Christian/anti-Christmas. Cleary. Right.

And you know I'm really rather irked with some members of our Christian community right now for making these outrageous, outlandish claims. It's not just Wal-Mart, guys. Everywhere I look on the web lately, I hear tale of the alleged "War on Christmas." So far, the only legitimate claim I've heard of a big business censoring themselves this Christmas has been Target, who admittedly censor their employees from saying Merry Christmas and sell "Holiday Trees" in the garden section.

Please realize that people in our culture have been trying to take Christ out of EVERYTHING, not only Christmas, for some time now! All I'm saying is that as the church, we can probably counteract this fact by making better uses of our time than picketing outide of Wal-Mart every day and making parking a very difficult thing for Sarah Angeline! The fact of the matter is, a lot of the world is literally going to Hell in a handbasket, because people are choosing to serve satan and rejecting Jesus Christ. That's what makes Christmas matter- having a relationship with Jesus Christ. I don't care what you want to call it- you can call it Christ's birthday all you want and it won't matter if you don't love Him and serve Him and profess that He is your God, your Lord, your Savior! That is the real issue at hand, church. The world needs to hear the message of Jesus 365 days a year. What better way to inform people of the real meaning of Christmas, than going out and sharing the Gospel with a lost and dying world?

Let's be honest with the world church, and hop off the "my group is oppressed" train that so many other cohorts are also riding. It gets us attention, but it's not the kind that we need. Let's get out there and show people the love of Jesus Christ this Holiday Season, by sharing the good news of the birth of our Savior.



Hi All!

Sun, 11 Dec 2005 06:01:00 +0000

Please check out my latest post entitled "Getting Back to the Basics" over at The Melting Thought, my new blog that I am writing jointly with one of my dearest friends, "David" (Or at least David is his alias). ;-)

It's kind of a new thing we're doing over there, but we're working on some things, feeling it out and deciding wether or not we will move all of our writing to the one joint blog. Among some of our future plans for the site are obviously regular fun and interesting articles covering whatever subjects we have running through our brains at the time, personal updates for friends and family, podcasts for all of you ipod/itunes users out there (resistance is futile), and just a new and fun way to keep in touch. The title of the new site once again, is "The Melting Thought: Where Random Thoughts Collide." Our future hope for the site is to have different and interesting people writing guest articles and doing podcasts with us.

So hop on over, leave us some shout outs and let us know what you think and how you feel. I love you all!



Sarah Angeline ---> St Louis. Back Monday.

Thu, 01 Dec 2005 14:45:00 +0000

I'm back. My connecting flight was an airplane full of rambunctious eighth grade ankle-biters. Must sleep. Will post more tomorrow.



Retail Hell

Sat, 26 Nov 2005 07:25:00 +0000

Or as Wal~Mart calls it, "Blitz" Day. Yes, for the uninformed among you, I work at Wally. As you can imagine, today was a great day to be a retail employee. Okay, I guess technically I'm a retail employee, but in all actuality I never work on the sales floor... my job title is Receiving Directs. I process all of our direct store deliveries and do all the paperwork and invoicing for them. I do this Tuesday-Saturday, 7-4, that's the set schedule. Except for today. Because today we didn't have any deliveries. So guess what I got to do today? I got to work in layaway! Oh the joys of working the salesfloor on the busiest shopping day of the year. Then, because my mental state has obviously deteriorated by the end of the day, I decided that I would go shopping myself. So I've pretty much spent sixteen hours in a retail establishment today.

The upside to all of this is that I did pick up a really nice digital camera for only $199, and a pair of jeans for only $8. Oh the savings. I wonder.... How much sanity is worth?

I'm going to sleep now.



Happy Turkey Day!

Fri, 25 Nov 2005 07:22:00 +0000

I hope you all have had a blessed day today. My day was well... interesting. Everyone's nerves were tense today because my cousin is in the hospital with some pretty serious complications... She was bit in the hand by a poisonous spider and now she has several serious infections in her arm. So my family and I ate out this afternoon and spent the evening in the hospital. After a long day of gobbling turkey and dealing with family members, I am ready to crash. Nonetheless, I have to say that I am very thankful for all the blessings that I know God has given me: I'm thankful for a loving family, good food to eat, a warm bed, and for our great country that I am privileged to call my home.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! :-)



Bliss...

Tue, 15 Nov 2005 06:39:00 +0000

Four term papers and three final examinations down! One more final to go tommorrow night, and I'll finally have a well earned break from this madness of 45-50 hours a week at work and 15 hours a week of classes, excluding homework and studying. The next quarter begins November 27th. I read a statistic somewhere that a person who works more than 70 hours a week of their life will have some kind of psychological meltdown... I'm right at the edge of it, let me tell ya.

During my break I'm going to go visit my best friends in Atwater and see my baby nephew Logan, attend three advance screenings of films which I will blog about, hopefully update this website, get adequate amounts of sleep and celebrate Thanksiving with my family.



Whose Job Is It?

Mon, 17 Oct 2005 17:55:00 +0000

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it. But nobody did. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.



ELIZABETHTOWN

Fri, 14 Oct 2005 07:18:00 +0000

Greetings, dear friends!

Two nights ago, I was supposed to attend the advance screening of ELIZABETHTOWN, starring Orlando Bloom and Kirstin Dunst. Unfortunately and much to my regret I was unable to attend the screening. However, Grace Hill Media (the media company that hooks me up with advance screenings) emailed me a very interesting resource in support of Elizabethtown that I would like to share with you all. It is a musical Bible study guide written by Craig Detweiler called "Music, Movies & Meaning: What is the Soundtrack of Your Life?" The Bible study is available for download at HollywoodJesus.com. SO.... Tommorrow, attend the film Elizabethtown and when you get home.... Check out the Bible study guide! Take your youth group! Do it with a group of friends! Isn't it just so cool to know that there are Christian media companies out there today who are working on resources like this for the Christian community? You have to check it out.

UPDATE: Saw it, loved it, downloading the Bible study guide as we speak.



Insert Abrupt Laughter Here.

Thu, 13 Oct 2005 07:49:00 +0000

I just saw on some celebrity news show that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes might name their kid "XENU." According to the cult religion scientology of which Tom Cruise is an active proponent and member, Xenu is an alien galactic ruler from 75 million years ago.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't it just be an ironic hoot if Katie got post-pardum you know what?



Toes are Froze

Mon, 10 Oct 2005 16:01:00 +0000

I'm on a break from class right now so I thought I'd give you all a quick shout out. It's only 9am and already I'm ready to go home... And have class until 3:30 today! :) I made the mistake of wearing flip flops to class today... Yeah, my feet are cold. But the good news is that I just scored a 90% on my miderm! Not bad, not bad.

I just got my first letter from my brother Jon at boot camp a few days ago. Pray for him... Everyone on his flight is screwing around. Jon's and two others are the only ones with any privileges right now.

Well, I gotta go back to class now. Love you guys.

Maybe he'll change
Maybe things will get better
Maybe it would be nice
If he wouldn't always put you down
Maybe things will work out
But maybe they'll never
And I think that you've given him
The benefit of the doubt

You need that boy like a bowling ball dropped on your head
Which means not at all
You have too much to give to live to waste your time on him
You need that boy like a bowling ball dropped on your head
Which means not at all
You have too much to give to live to waste your time on him

Maybe he'll change
If you could be better
But maybe it's not your fault
He's checking out the waitress now
But someday you'll change
One day you're stronger
And you will have changed enough
And it's time to get out

You need that boy like a bowling ball dropped on your head
Which means not at all
You have too much to give to live to waste your time on him
You need that boy like a bowling ball dropped on your head
Which means not at all
You have too much to give to live to waste your time on him

You have too much to give to live to waste your time on him

The Plan

Thu, 08 Sep 2005 04:24:00 +0000

Hello to all of our dear friends and readers. This is the first of posts by Angeline after a short absence from blogging due to ummmm... an overactive schedule. ;-) And due to the fact that my comma button was broken until recently. But now I can type all the commas I want, so expect more bloggy goodness from me soon!! With that, I want to leave you all with a very funny plan laid out by the man himself, Robin Williams, on how to deal with certain ummm.... "problems" in our world today. So here it is... Robin Williams in "The Plan!"

"I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.

1) The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good ole boys', we will never "interfere" again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go some place else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides, most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?'"

I will never understand why Andy Milonakis has his own television show.



MY COMMA BUTTON IS BROKEN

Sun, 21 Aug 2005 09:53:00 +0000

If you haven't seen the movie "A Lot Like Love" starring Ashton Kutcher and some other girl don't waste your time money and brain cells on this stupid slowly progressing movie. If I actually owned this movie personally I would break it up into fifty-billion little pieces and mail them to Ashton Kutcher. "A Lot Like Love" definitely reminds me of the time when my friends and I all went to see "Big Fish" together. I felt as though my IQ actually dropped while watching that movie.

Quote of the nite by my sister: The thing is that when I watch a movie I actually want to be entertained. I don't want it to progress as slow as in freakin' real life.



This Song is so Funny!

Wed, 17 Aug 2005 02:19:00 +0000

When he was seeing her you could see he had his doubts
and now he's missing her because he knows he's missing out
and now it's haunting him- the memory is like a ghost
and he's so terrified 'cuz no one else even comes close

He's the guy that you should feel sorry for
he had the world but he thought that he wanted more
I owe it all to the mistake he made back then
I owe it all to my girl's ex-boyfriend

So then along comes me- this undeserving mess
who would believe my life would be so blessed
two years ago when he left all that debris
who would have known he would leave everything I need

He's the guy that you should feel sorry for
he had the world but he thought that he wanted more
I owe it all to the mistake he made back then
I owe it all to my girl's ex-boyfriend

If it wasn't for him I would still be searching
if it wasn't for him I wouldn't know my best friend
if it wasn't for him he would be able to see
that if it wasn't for him he'd be as happy as me

When she and I settle down you can bet
that he is gonna have to settle for less
he's someone I would hate to be
I got the girl and he's left with just the memory

He's the guy that you should feel sorry for
he had the world but he thought that he wanted more
I owe it all to the mistake he made back then
I owe it all to my girl's ex-boyfriend

~ "My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend" by Relient K
