Today, I wrote my dad (whom I RARELY have ever talked to and have grown up for basically 15-16 years without) an email updating him about what happened 2010 and what might happen 2011. As a non-believer, he PROBABLY will have NO idea WHY I do/have done/will do the things I do/have done/will do, but that’s okay.
On Jan 1, 2011, I told Jesus that I will love my family better this year. My relationship with my mama has been really good for the past 2 years…now onto Dad and Sister. I don’t know what this means, and I definitely don’t NATURALLY want to do this, but Jesus knows better, and he tells me that I should grow up…to resemble him.
So, Step 1: Write Dad an email. CHECK.
Ohhhhhhh Dear Jesus. I’ve done my part. Now You work Your magic.

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus.”

Yesterday we went to California Adventure & Disneyland for a true adventure. Seeing World of Color was…breathtakingly amazingly stupendously outrageously extraordinary.
But even before that, I knew God was with us. We safely got to Disneyland and so easily it would’ve been hard to believe that we came on a day that reached full capacity! (Don’t worry, the freaky amount of people put any unbelief to rest) Despite the maxed out day, we had a 45 minute wait at Space Mountain-it’s usually 190 minutes…I KNOW! UNNNBELIEVABLE! What’s 190 minus 45? It’s winter break so I don’t even know, but I know it’s TOOO much! And Disneyland was having a 30% off discount at certain restaurants but only during a certain window of time, yet since Space Mountain worked out magically, we came at the perfect time & our meal was 30% off! And then World of Color…human words cannot describe. But to top it all off, we had Molca Salsa & all got home safe & sound. I think. I was dropped off first. HAHA
