fight on with determination 
in all areas of life's battle!

there are a few things i want to blog about, but not sure i have enough content for separate blogs. 
so here we go, the mish-mosh kinda blog.
(which isn't that uncommon for me, now, is it?)

i've been convicted lately how little i pray. 
when did i forget how powerful and utterly 
important communion with God is?

i had this wicked headache last night at work. 
first thing i did? 
go in search for advil.
the Lord provided it and i was grateful,
but not as grateful as when 2 of my coworkers asked 
if they could pray for me;
seriously, so blessed. so convicted.

later, i was trying to draw blood and was having a hard time.
i finally prayed, simply and to the point, that the Lord would allow me to get the blood i needed.

and He did. 
the Almighty God provides, even in small ways.

i encountered a patient at work the last couple of nights.
he'd watch the scifi channel nonstop.
literally, he'd be asleep with it on.
kinda had a quarky personality that comes with constantly watching the scifi channel,
which, by the way, is crazy disgusting at times.
the man probably has lung cancer.
probably not just in his lungs anymore.

no. words.

i get why so many nurses abuse substances.
the reality of death looms around,
but thinking about it, i mean, actually thinking about it
 can be so damaging.

but then again,

"It is better to go to the house of mourning
    than to go to the house of feasting,
for this is the end of all mankind,
    and the living will lay it to heart."
Ecclesiastes 7:2

i started this new cleanse/lifestyle. 
gimmicky? maybe.
working? we'll see.
feeling good so far, but i'm only on day two.

*  *  *

i graduate college 2 years ago.
and i can't believe it's been 2 years since i was last in south asia.
Lord, when will you allow me to go back?

excited for my friend maragaret who heads to one of my fave south asian countries next month. pray for her and her team.
also excited for my friends who just got back from sudan and those who are headed to lyberia later this summer.

pretty random, yea?
well, what else did you expect?

pinter-test kitchen: may

my friend jessica hosts a linky party called pinter-test kitchen.

you know, pinterest?
that website where you pretend to be super crafty and all?

well, this link-it-up fun is great excuse to 
try some of those fun things.
i've only worked about 6 days this past month, so i had some time to try a recipe that looked interesting.

i saw this healthy cookie recipe that was easy to make.
so i gave it a try.

first, i got all the ingredients together:

preheat the oven:

and get mixing! really, all you do is put the ingredients in and mix!

i tasted the dough at this point and i had a suspicion i should add some splenda or sugar, but i didn't in the spirit of trying something new.

one last step: add some cinnamon to the top.

the second batch in the oven, i put cinnamon and splenda on top. good life choice fo sho.

the finished project.
not as good as i had hoped.
it nipped the sweet tooth in the bud,
but something was missing.
like sugar.
and calories.

i do recommend this recipe, however.
just add some splenda or sugar.

happy pinning!
