Uh oh

1) 50 push-ups, check.
2) 60 sit-ups, check.
3) 1 1/2 miles in 12 minutes? No check. 1 1/2 miles in 15 minutes?! Uh oh, this isn't good, especially because boot camp is less than a month away. I need a treadmill...

A few things I have or do or want to do that make me happy

To see justice served: the guilty punished and the innocent freed
To see a smile when someone opens my gift to them
To have friends who care
To hear "you really made my day"
To meet a kindred spirit and fight for a cause alongside them
To behold breathtaking beauty
To have a loving Father who's with me always
To protect the innocent - to save those ready to be slain
To tell an amazing story with words or images
To make a difference for good in the lives of others
To change to world...

What are some things that make you happy?

Merry Christmas!

Have a very merry Christmas, everyone! May we remember to give of ourselves for others this Christmas just as one has gave everything to become the Ultimate Gift to the world. My mom and I picked up a tree at Home Depot the other day for free, so I finally got to take a Christmasy photo. :)

O Christmas Tree

Free Christmas music

One of my favorite singers, Anna Gilbert has a Christmas album for free today at!
If you like mellow, acoustic/folk-sounding music sung by a singer with a pretty voice, give her music a listen.
You can also find quite a few other Christmas albums (as well as a bunch in many other genres) on Noisetrade, and it's all free (and legal). Enjoy! :)
