What's in a name?

ha.ha. That made me CRACK up ;D

This morning, I was listening to Kid Kraddick on the radio, and he was talking about this website.  Based on the "Kablarian Philosophy", this site gives common characteristics of people with your name.  It is freakishly ACCURATE!
This is mine:

  • The first name of Kristi gives you a dynamic and highly strung nature.
    (HA.HA. Pretty true ;D)
  • You have a humanitarian and principled side to your character and will go out of your way to help someone if you feel there is injustice or unfairness.
     (DEAD ON!)

  • You often become involved in situations without any thought of the consequences.
    (EH... not so much.)
  • You are basically seeking truth in life and have a very analytical and questioning mind.
    (CHECK!)
  • Being perceptive and intuitive, you often respond to your hunches, which can lead you into bitter experiences.
    (WAIT... are you stalking me?!?)
  • You love change, travel, and new opportunities and dislike monotonous detail.
    (i love travel.  Change?!? not so much...)
  • Though you show enthusiasm over a new-found interest, you seldom finish the things you start.

(Ha.Ha. Sad, but true ;D)

  • Although the name Kristi creates idealism and the urge to help others, we emphasize that it causes a restless intensity that defies relaxation.
...So go check yours out!  Is it spot on? ...or waaay of track?!?
Comment below and let me know what you find out :)

Day 21

Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?



I'm always afraid this will happen... 
Sometimes when i'm mad, I'll even say... "I love you, but i'm still mad" just to cover my bases!

If this happened i would rush to my BFF's side, and apologize  a milion gazillion (yesh, that is an exact number) times!!!
If, God forbid, my BFF were to die, i don't think i could ever forgive myself :(

Just say NO :: Day 20

Your views on drugs/alcohol.


Why?!?  Give me one good reason why you should...
THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT :P
Why not have sober fun you remember the next day...?
lol
PS. i know it could be done in moderation, but I'd rather not even worry about the line :)
Oh...and never ever ever ever drink AND drive.
mkay?!?


AND DRUGS?!? 
...just absolutely DON'T!!!

Stay Beautiful... annnnnd sober :)
xoxo.

The truth about Religion... Day 19

What do you think about Religion?


Religion is just the rules, the important part is that you have a Relationship with Christ. 
Being "good" will not get you to heaven (1 Cor. 3:11-15)!  If you don't ask Jesus into your heart (Romans 10: 9-10, 13), it doesn't matter what else you do!

This song tells EXACTLY how i feel about Religion :)









Yiiiikes. A little CONTROVERSY... Day 18

i am waaaay behind on my 30 days of Truth... so here i go catching up a bit :)


What are your views on gay marriage?


My opinion has two parts:
A. Homosexuality is wrong.
The Bible is clear where it stands, and i believe the Bible is the "Handbook" to life :)

"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" Lev. 18:22
 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" Lev. 20:13


The Bible is clear about how God feels about homosexuality.  He created sex to be between a man and a women (Genesis 1:22) and anything outside of that is a perversion and unnatural.








B. I am not THE judge.


...GOD IS.
I hate it when people (especially Christians) show hate to gay people.
EXCUSE ME, BUT IT IS NOT YOUR RIGHT TO PUNISH THEM!!!
We are supposed to show Love, even to those in sin (1 Jn 4:7&8)


Ps. God is the only perfect one, WE HAVE ALL SINNED.(Romans 3:10,23)
So, NO POINTING FINGERS! ...Your hands are not clean!
(Matthew 7:5)






I HATE controversy, but i have to stand up on this one!
Much love to all of you :)
xoxo.

The truth about the Bible, day 17

A book that you've read that changed your views on something.


Ps. This beauty is my friend, Bethany :)
annnnnd this Picture was taken by my talented best friend, Scarlett.




The Bible.
i know that sounds completely cliche, but it took be a while to get here.
I grew up in Church, but i think for a long time i looked at the Bible like a history book.
In my head, i knew the facts, but i never let it sink into my heart.
Then, after i got saved, i was reading in Psalms and i saw that over in the margin, there was a list of verses that described characteristics of God.
I started searching, reading about Him.



Psalms 105: 7:: He is the Lord our God...
(8) He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
(The rest of this chapter sums up all the great things he did for the people of Isreal- You should go check it out!)
Psalms 106:1 Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
(2) Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can show forth all his praise?

Once I realized how amazing he is: the creator of the universe, the giver of breath (Isaiah 42:5), it broke my heart that he could love someone as imperfect, small, and lost as me. Not only that, but he gave his only son to die for me (Romans 5:8, Jn 3:16), so that i can live in Heaven with Him :)
Romans 10:13: "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
But, it breaks my heart even more to know that he sacrificed so much, and some people will never accept Him into their hearts. (Matt 24:35-42, Luke 13:5)


The Bible completely changes my views on everything: Love (1 Corinthians 13), friendship (1 Jn 4:7 & 8, Proverbs 18:24), Forgiveness (1 Jn 1:9, Matt. 18:21-35), and even what how I see myself (Jn 1:12, Eph. 2:10, Matt. 10:29,31).

My Life... in a box

Here we are... Moving.  AGAIN.


Silas is scheduled to leave for the good ol desert next week sometime, so this weekend we are moving all the "big stuff" to Springfield with a UHAUL.  
Later, (when i'm able to stand for five minutes with out bursting into tears! lol) my momma will help me get the last few boxes back and i will live at home for a few days.  
And, then, WHAMO KA BLAMO! New Apt at the end of November :) :) :)

I feel very Wishy Washy about this move. 
 I LOOOVE to pack! organizing is my thing :) 
but, then today, as i was packing all of Silas' clothes in a box, a wave of sadness came over me.
I stared down at the infinite plaid and couldn't believe i wouldn't see my goofy love bug in these for six months or more.
And, then again, when i wrapped the frames with our wedding pictures inside, and stuck them in a box. I realized, we're leaving our first apartment. The first "home" we made together :(
but then again, i'm excited about having a new place :)
...and a girl room mate again ;D
AND I HAVE A WINDOW SEAT IN MY ROOM :)
(i must show you pictures when i move in!!!)

So, here i go... With my heart on my sleeve and life in a box!
WISH ME LUCK

Day 16

Someone/Something you could definitely live without


hmmmm...

People who don't wash their hands after using the restroom & infect my world with pee hands :P

Ungrateful-ness
Leggings.  They are not pants!

All movies that star "The Rock", stick to fighting, bub ;)



AWKWARD.....SILENCE
Any size of jeans under four.  PLEASE. :P
Raisins




Uncompassionate  people- look past your own nose!
The guy who invented pantie hose & under wire bras (heaven knows it was a man!)
Miley Cyrus.  Seriously, just go away please. You talk like a man, and what is that face? Do you smell something fowl?
GOODBYES :/

Day 15

Someone/Something you can't live with out...
because you tried.


My Sunshine::Silas James.
I hate when we're apart :/
I'm dreadinggg deployment (just a few weeks... :P) because my life without silas is so...
grim.
He makes me :)
He is my very best friend.
We share everything:  inside jokes, a bed, and our dreams :)
We should get jerseys, cuz we make a good team
;D
i hate. Hate. HATE! being without him.

buuuuuutttttt...
There is a big difference between being apart for awhile and losing him all together.
I've only had to face that reality once, and thank God it was not permanent.
October 2008 Silas and i had a huuuuggge fight that ended in me slamming my door, screaming we're over and speeding away.
Think 90210... only real. 
I stormed to my dorm room and made it official.
THAT'S RIGHT: i changed my status on facebook to single!

And the next two days i didn't talk to him at all.
It was horridendous!
That's when I realized, I couldn't stand being apart from him.
When i aced my test, i wanted to call him up and celebrate over ice cream!
And who would take me to the new movie on friday?
I was lost without him.
...and one stupid fight wasn't worth losing what we had.
So after two horrible days, we met at burger king and made up :)
...and we haven't been separated since.

So, bring on deployment!
I can take temporary separation, as long as I still have my baby when it's all over <3

"You make me happy when sky's are grey...
You'll never know dear, how much i love you!
Please don't take my sunshine away" 
:)


Day 14

A hero that let you down.
Hmmm... i don't think i've ever had a hero let me down.
So, i changed it to this:
Who's your hero?
And, then i realized, that's why we, as Christians, shouldn't have earthly heros.
They will let you down every time! Their only human.
So, i changed the question to this:

Who do you look up to?

Momma & Me... back in the day :)
Dear Momma,
I know you know i am freaking out about the deployment coming up.  I have so many fears, but i know that you'll be holding my hand all the way through. 
No matter what life throws at me i know i can take it, because i've watched you endure and you always come out stonger, but just as sweet.
I love hearing you sing "God is so good", i know you feel that it is the theme to your life. THANK YOU for seeing it that way :)
i love you so much and i can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!
xoxo.
sissy :)

My Momma & Me before my wedding :)

Day 13

A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days.
(write a letter)


This is the original group, only two are left: Shelly & Denise, plus a new member: Leigh.
Dear Heather, Shelly, Denise, and Terry,
I love the beautiful music you make!  I've been listening since i was in kindergarten.  My oldest sister had some of your tapes and sang "Jesus Doesn't Care" in Church several times.  The older I got, the more I understood the words of your songs.
"God loves people More than anything... More than anything He wants them to know, he rather die than let them go, God loves people more than anything..." This song reminds me of God's love for everyone, and how he wants us to tell them :)
"You tell me no one would love you if they could see deep inside.  You say your friends might desert you if they knew the truth you hide. Well, there's one who knows you better than you know yourself, and he still loves you more than anybody else"  I feel like this verse was written about me and the hope in the words speaks to my heart.
"How You Live" is encouragement to me to live my life in the moment :)
I know many of your songs by heart and sing the words to myself and find comfort in them!
Thank you for your sweet music :)
xoxo.
Kristi








Quote Love :)

I love a good quote!
I discovered this one today, and it made my heart :) 

"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.


For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.


For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. 


For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.


For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone."


-Audrey Hepburn

Drum Roll Please... :)

Happy HaOWloween :) :) :)

First, i have to tell you this great joke my momma told me:
(and if you know my momma it will make you laugh when you hear it!!!)
Q: WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU GOOSE A GHOST?!?!
???
A: a handful of SHEET! 
bahahahahaha :D

I finally talked Silas into carving pumpkins with me :)
 (aka: i snuck out and bought them and he joined in because i was doing it!) 
 ...and do you know what?!? THAT TURD HAD FUN (DUH :P)

Carving!
Carving Buddies :D
Silas' AWESOME Halo pumpkin :)
Our Pumpkins <3

Day 12

Something you never get compliments on.



Singing.
That is probably because i am no good :P
(Really. This is not me being modest, promise.)
And, with the exception of riding in my car, and listening to me sing with the radio blasting, not many people hear me.
And, trust me, you want it that way :)

Day 11


Something people seem to compliment you the most on.


Being Creative/"Artsy" :)   
Which, i have to say, usually makes me laugh!  It's not that i'm not creative, or that i don't think the stuff i make is cute (i love being crafty!)... It's just that usually when i get this comment it's out of the blue in reference to something totally simple.
ie: bulletin boards at chruch, grant it, mine were cute, but how much artistic talent do they really take?!? lol
It is a huuuuge compliment though :) i've always enjoyed artsy things, and i love the thought that people may actually like the things that i make :) :) :)

What do you usually get compliments on?  Comment below, i love to hear about you!
xoxo.
