The Beauty of Being Imperfect..

So I have a little testimony to share. I'm going to be real here and tell you about something I deal with.. Anger. Yep, I can get pretty angry at lame things, things that may seem not so important I get angry at. On Sunday at church, Pastor Ed spoke about anger and how not to deal with it. The Bible verse that stuck was James 1:19-21 and it says this:

19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. 

This really hit home with me. It got me wondering why I even get angry at the silliest things.. being a believer of Jesus Christ does not mean we are perfect. Quite the opposite really, we know we are far from perfect which is why we reach out and ask God to govern our lives and make us better people. I decided it was time for change with my attitude. I really want to be the light everywhere I go. I want to be a good influence and show people what it means to be a believer. The place I get most annoyed/angry at is at my workplace. Yea it's a combination of me being burnt out by the job and I'm only working here because a.) It's good money for a college student & b.) They really work with us with our schedule.
But being in customer service takes A LOT of patience and being in a Republican Presidential Museum takes patience x2. Ha. I've been working here for over 2 years and I've dealt with the elderly and their rude comments and sometimes racial comments and lately I'm having a hard time just ignoring. I ended up talking back to a customer that was saying mean things. They complained. On Monday, I openly told my boss what I had learned on Sunday. I don't know why I told her, I just opened up and told her I was totally making that change with my attitude. Ok so to make this long story short, the papers to let me go were sitting at the boss' desk... They were going to fire me right then and there and when God spoke to me and told me to tell them what I had decided on Sunday, they changed their mind and kept me here. Crazy huh? It's amazing how God has my back and shows me Love when most needed. I love him. I know most of the time I am a nice person, I'm good friend and I love working with people and helping them when their in need but man, I know now what I need to work on and I feel so relieved. =) Ok so that's the most I've ever written on here but I really wanted to share God's power & love with all of you.
After church we explored Fillmore & took some photos with my iphone.
 I love everything about this photo, the crops, the sky, the sun and my hunky babe.

We also had some yummy In n' Out
Nice stink-eye eh?
 Pretty much the best cheese burger in California. =)

On Monday night, I had planned to make a Thai Pizza that I found on where else but Pinterest and oh my gosh, It came out so flippin good! While I was slavin' in the kitchen (ha) David was being a boy and getting clouds added to his tattoo with our bud Michael. We've known Mike since freshman year of high school and it's cool that now he's a tattoo artist in Fillmore ! 
  Tada! My delish spicy Thai Pizza!

I went to the shop to feed the boys some of the pizza & they loved it! They both said it was spicy but good! 

what a whimp! ;)

Pretty cool ! Guess what the S stands for? ;-)

Yesterday it was back to school . wah.... I don't like going to school but I guess it what's best for now. My teacher was a very loud over the top guy that thought everything he said was funny...umm not! So I sat in class being quiet and annoyed but the class seems like a lot of fun so I'm excited to learn! 
For breakfast I chopped up some sweet onion, tomatoe & celery and cooked them into the egg whites. turned out pretty yummy. Something about cooking lately... it's very therapeutic! 

While being sick, I got to play with a new app I got. Look Ma! ha
 Pretty dumb I know but funny lookin. Think happy thoughts!
