This weekend.....

This weekend my life will change.
This weekend I will marry my best friend.
This weekend my life will be the same.
Because this weekend I will marry my best friend.

And doesn’t run away.
It’s amazing to finally have someone who loves you
And loves you in spite of your ways.

This weekend I will marry my best friend
And this weekend, I will hold on to my forever with open arms.

I love you Jeffrey with all that I have-

Wednesday, May 13, 2009 Kettle

Is Shannon Moakler really critiquing Miss California's pictures? She claims she wants to be a role model for her children- does that include her Playboy stint? I know I am not perfect but I’ll admit when I am wrong. But does Shannon even understand that her posing in Playboy is far worse than any modeling pictures Miss California took? Am I the only one that sees this? I haven't checked out either's photos, nor do I intend to, but something tells me we aren't even comparing apples to oranges. Perhaps potatoes to athlete's foot....hmm

Kettle meet Pot- Pot meet Kettle….in this case I think the kettle has been smoking so much pot it doesn’t know its own color.

Moakler resigns after Miss California flap
Pageant co-director Shanna Moakler says 'I no longer believe in it'

A day after Donald Trump allowed Miss California Carrie Prejean to keep her crown following a semi-nude photo scandal, Shanna Moakler resigned from her post at the organization.
“Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization,” Shanna released in a statement to Access Hollywood. Up until her resignation, Shanna held the co-Executive Director post at the Miss California Organization.
Shanna continued on that following yesterday’s press conference, she lost faith in the organization.

“I can not with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth,” Shanna’s statement continued. “I want to be a role model for young woman (sic) with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.”

When contacted by Access Hollywood, the Trump Organization was unaware that Shanna had resigned.

Despite racy photos of the beauty queen that surfaced on last week and new topless photos that surfaced on on Tuesday, which showed Prejean posing without a shirt, Trump allowed the beauty queen to retain her title.

“We’ve reviewed the pictures very carefully... we are in the 21st century and I talked about relevance and the pageants have been updated tremendously. And Carrie is a model, she’s a very successful model, we have determined — and we have the absolute right under the contract — we have determined that the pictures taken are fine,” Trump said at Tuesday’s press conference. “So, we’ve made a determination that everything we’ve seen to this date that she’s done, some were risque, but again, we’re in the 21st century, so we’ve made a determination that the pictures taken were acceptable they were fine in many cases. They were lovely pictures and in some cases they were modeling pictures, so I think that’s very important to understand.”

Trump also addressed the strife between the co-directors of the Miss California USA, Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis, and Prejean.

“The last thing… is we have Keith and Shannon from the pageant, the directors of the Miss California pageant. I met them today for the first time…they were having some miscommunication with Carrie. The communication, I believe, is totally solved. They are really getting along very well,” Trump said on Tuesday. “They’ve been meeting for hours in my office and I really think that they are and have developed a relationship that they didn’t have before. Carrie will remain Miss California. She, I believe will do a fantastic job.

“And I think that Carrie will go down as somebody that Shanna and Keith will be very proud of in the end,” he added.

When contacted by Access Hollywood, the Trump Organization was unaware that Shanna had resigned.

This is a scattered post but I suppose there is a theme- encouragement.

I did not know this woman’s face nor did I know her name. I read it this morning on Love 89’s site and decided to find out who she was and why Pat Summit was at her funeral. This is a touching video and well worth the time to listen, even if you cannot watch it. There is a lot that comes into focus when you know you don’t have much time and I hope this puts your life into perspective and you are encouraged by it.

Secondly, I heard about this book on Love 89 this morning. The author, as it turns out, goes to my church. The book just seems like a good read for any woman who has children and struggles to keep her own identity in Christ while still being mom and wife. I may end up getting this for my mommy-to-be friend for a shower present! The author’s site can be found here. If you join Chick-Chat on Love, they will give you a 20% off coupon to use at Cedar Springs Bookstore. My favorite passage on her site is this-

“I am grateful to be God’s child, knowing my life is in His hands and He is in control of my time. God also reminded me of the scripture that says “whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Cor. 10:31 I am serving Him as I wash dishes and do the laundry because I am serving my family! What an awesome opportunity and blessing to know that I am where He wants me doing what He has called me to do.

I just wanted to encourage some moms who may think that your work at home is meaningless. God says that He knows those who trust in Him and is close to all who call on Him. I pray that today you will call on Him and know that whatever you are doing, do it for the glory of God!”

I love you all-
