Today I went to to donate blood at the Red Cross for the first time. I was incredibly nervous because the thought of taking all that blood out and the needle being in my arm for so long... well it just made me a little anxious. But the more I thought about, the less I needed to freak out. Give blood is not THAT big of a deal. Plus, every pint of blood you donate can be used by 3 different people and some patients rely on new blood daily. So I got myself all psyched once I was inside, went into my room to answer all the weird questions like whether or not I have had sex with a gay man (again, weird) and realized... I forgot my ID. So, I couldn't give blood today :( But I am going to go bad next week which just so happens to be KLOS week at the RED CROSS. There is tons of food, the radio station is there aaannnnddd donors get two free tickets to either a Journey concert or a Deff Lepord and Cheap Trick Concert. So those are pretty cool pluses. But I think I could definitely get in the routine of donating blood every 58 days :)

I encourage everyone to think about donating blood at the Red Cross. You can make an appointment and find out more HERE!

VBS: Crocodile Dock

During the month of July I am serving at 2 different VBS's (Vacation Bible Schools). The first one just ended today. It was called "Crocodile Dock" and it focused on not being afraid. I was part of the beloved Bayou Band that consisted of Billy Bob, Margi May, Peppermint Patty, Willy John and myself (Emmy Jean).The week was a lot of fun and it was great to see all the kids singing and dancing for Jesus.

Cow Appreciation Day

Cow appreciation day at Chic-Fil-A. I attempted to dress up two little ones as cows so they could receive free combo meals at Chic-Fil-A. Only one of them let me finish the costume, but we still took them and had a great time.

If my heart is Overwhelmed

I heard this song at Rock Harbor about a month ago, and I cant stop listening to it. Sadly, the only place I can find it is on youtube. So here it is!

Here are the lyrics for the chorus:
Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours
I am forever Yours
Mountain high or valley low
I sing out remind my soul
I am Yours
I am forever Yours
