10 ways to love...

i found this on pinterest and i want to share... 


10 ways to love*


LISTEN without interrupting
...but there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. -Prov 18:24


SPEAK without accusing
...everyone should be quick to learn, slow to speak and slow to become angry. -James 1:9


GIVE without sparing 
...but the righteous give without sparing. -Prov 21:26


PRAY without ceasing
...but the righteous give without sparing. -Col 1:9


ANSWER without arguing
...better a bite of dry bread in piece than a house full of feasting with conflict. -Prov 17:1


SHARE without pretending
...we will grow to become the mature body of Him who is the head, Christ. -Eph 4:15


ENJOY without complaint
...do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become pure. -Phil 2:14


TRUST without wavering
...it always protects, always trusts, always hopes. -1 Cor 13:7


FORGIVE without punishing
...bear with each other and forgive one another. -Col 3:13


PROMISE without forgetting
...for the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things. -Prov 13:12


I think the hardest for me is to forgive without punishing, it's so hard to be hurt and then just let it go. I think no matter how hard you try you always remember what has happened. I need to work on that because I want others to forgive me.... and how fair is it to want what you can't/won't do? "to be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because GOD has forgiven the inexcusable in you." That has to be one of my favorite sayings/quotes/whatever... it's so simple and so true. I need to tattoo it on my arm!

bobalouie ;)

So yesterday I was on my way to Warren for a meeting and I stopped in Hampton at the frame shop to pick up some things my mom got framed. As I turned in I notice they put in a new BBQ place in the shop... "BOB-A-LOU'S"

I immediately DIE laughing! When I was young for some reason (think it was in a song or something?) my dad called my bobalouie and i hated it. Like would cry, throw a fit and yell, "don't call me bobalobieeeee!!" (I couldn't say it either, obvs)

Still to this day my dad will start yelling, "don't call me bobbballouubiiee!!!......"

JRam is getting MARRIED!!!

This past weekend we went to Dallas to celebrate JRam's upcoming wedding~ woo hoo, bachelorette party! I had so much fun getting to spend the weekend with fabulous friends. We rented a party bus drove around Dallas most of the night, so much fun! Picture time!

So we went downstairs to get the hotel to call us a cab and one of the men asked what we were all dressed up for, when we told him a bachelorette party, he said, "why don't i just put y'all in a limo?!" OKAY!

After dinner, Syd and I in the party bus.

BESTS! Erin, Jennifer and I

Sydney, Dallas and I

FAVORITE picture of the night. Erin thought this man in the red pants was Andre 3000, so she goes to get a pic with him~ not knowing the chick in the plaid is his very jealous girlfriend. LOVE IT.

The bride and I

Love my Skiddy!

ag tour

The boss was in the state most all of August and we had so much fun visiting the southern part of the state. I got to go to my first hog farm! We got to wear those full white body suits, a few layers of plastic boots, masks, and gloves... seriously took me about 5 shampoos to get the smell out of my hair. That scent was foul and I'd be okay if I never went back.

We also go to visit a watermelon farm with tons of cows and gators, first bakery ever... it was really neat, they make all the breadsticks for fazolis and that cinnabon bread you see at the grocery... lots of stuff i've seen a million times but had no idea it came from Hope, AR! Pretty sweet, here's some pics....

Matt and I at the hog farm in Kirby, AR

Priscilla and I

Stacey, Matt, Tracy and I @ Southern Bakeries in Hope, AR~ no open toe shoes allowed in the bakery, tennis shoes and dresses it is!

Those plastic boots were amazing for dancing....

Thankfully the Ag tour is just once a year... I kid, I loved it!!

words of wisdom

I got this in an email yesterday and really liked it... so I'm sharing :)

For A Reason
Author Unknown
"Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, they serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be; your roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost friend,  or even a complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to you and at the time they may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential strength will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless. The people you meet who affect your life and the successes and downfalls you experience, they are the ones who create who you are. Even the bad experiences can be learned from, those lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.


Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high.

Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it."
