Yeah, God Does Love Me

My Momma has told me multiple times that when I was a baby, she took me to the altar at this little church in Cove Creek she attended as a child and with only her, me and God there, dedicated me to God and asked that he keep his hand of protection over me all my life. I can honestly say that I believe so much of the good stuff that happens to me is a result of that one day. But Saturday, more than ever, I felt the benefit of that request. I went to take the last LSAT offered before the beginning of the fall semester at UA School of Law. This was literally the last chance I had to get into law school for the next year. I asked and prayed and believed in the fact that He would be helping me out, guiding my hand and giving me countenance and wisdom in my answers. He not only did that, he did something that I will say right here and now is a miracle. The test booklet I had, it only had 1 section out of 5 that was the logic games I just cannot do! So 4 our of the 5 sections were just me reading and answering questions, which I rock at!!! I left that room with the biggest fullest happiest heart I can ever recall having. And my first phone call was to Momma to thank her for taking me to that altar. I love her!

To add to what was seemingly the best day already, I got to hang out with my Fredrick clan! I miss Vicki and Jessica and Leah and Gary and Jaden! They mean so much to me and the fact that both families are not well off enough to go back and forth anymore sucks. I wish we lived one town over or something so I could be more involved in the kids lives and hang out with Vicki. One day, when I am making much more money, I will have the opportunity to go up there more and have the kids down more often!

Ok, I hogged my weigh loss blog with personal stuff long enough. I have had just an excellent weekend! Friday I had a hell of a run! I finally got to my goal of 2.25 miles at 5 mph and 5 incline! I am gonna do that some more this week and next weeks goal is gonna be 2.5 miles at 5 mph and 5 incline! Aaaaand if I can be patient, I think if I let the day light break this morning I can go jogging outside today! I got home late last night but it looked like my roads were thawed out and dried up here in the neighborhood!! If so I am gonna let it get warmed up by the sun and get out for some good jogging!
