Drum roll please

I promised I would name the Rockin Girl Bloggers today so here ya go....


Oh but first I want to really thank Clem for the kind words she wrote about me on her blog. I think you rock too!! Your words just blessed me so much. If you haven't known me long faith has always been such a struggle for me because it means letting go and trusting God. My lack of faith is why I didn't leave my marriage a long time ago. So to be told that I "ooze faith" just blessed me and reminded me of how far I have come. This year has been such a challenge for me and I think I understand better how the people felt when they left Egypt..sometimes it seems easier to just keep doing what you have always done because change IS hard and grumbling comes so easy. Oh I think this song explains it best. It is by Sara Groves

I don’t want to leave here
I don’t want to stay
It feels like pinching to me either way
The places I long for the most
Are the places where I’ve been
They are calling after me like a long lost friend

It’s not about losing faith
It’s not about trust
It’s all about comfortable
When you move so much
The place I was wasn’t perfect
But I had found a way to live
It wasn’t milk or honey
But then neither is this

CHORUS:
I’ve been painting pictures of Egypt
Leaving out what it lacked
The future seems so hard
And I want to go back
But the places that used to fit me
Cannot hold the things I"ve learned
And those roads closed off to me
While my back was turned

The past is so tangible
I know it by heart
Familiar things are never easy to discard
I was dying for some freedom
But now I hesitate to go
Caught between the promise
And the things I know

BRIDGE:
If it comes too quick
I may not recognize it
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?
If it comes too quick
I may not appreciate it
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?


Wait I said I was going to tell you who I thought the Rockin Girl Bloggers were and I got off on something else:-P Not hard for me because I think I have ADD:-D
Ok since you all know I think Oklahoma Rocks I am going to pick Oklahoma bloggers. Some of you I have met and some I can't wait to meet:-) Just email me and we can do lunch dahling! You know my schedule is just so flexible right now;-)

So without making this much longer
I will start with Grace...She is such a sweet blogger AND she makes cheesecake which is a plus...see that was a HUGE hint in case ya'll missed it. I love me some dessert lol We haven't met yet but we will:-)

Then I will head on over to ~*~Jesica~*~who I had the privilege of meeting last week. You wouldn't know that we just met to hear us together! I even took her dh on a date which just seems weird but trust me it wasn't lol I LOVE her kids and I had forgotten how much I enjoy babies. She talks just as much as I do so we closed down a Starbucks one night and I got home after midnight TWICE!

Then we have Kilikina who I haven't met either but she is really pregnant so I won't bug her:-) SOOOO sweet though!! Oh my gosh and go check out the pic on June 18th of her little basketball belly...I can't figure out how to link that one but it is TOOOOOO cute!! She is contracting right now so send some easy labor prayers..I am so excited for her lol

And we can't forget Merci who I have also met and mentioned on here before:-) She is an amazing person and I love reading her blog. She blesses me just by breathing. You know that friend that just knows your heart without you saying a word? that is her:-) I can honestly say I could not have gotten through this last year without her love and support. You really do rock lol

Last but not least is someone new to Oklahoma Robin who moved here from Texas. She is REAL and that is a huge plus in my book. And she loves my Jesus and that shows.

So consider yourself Rockin Girl Bloggers!!

Wow - I'm so flattered! Thanks very much. Can't wait to meet you at some point. And maybe I'll even bring cheesecake!!

We need to have an Okie Bloggers' Conflagration. Or maybe just coffee...

I'm so glad you played along, and I enjoyed visiting the girls you think rock.

Ok, thanks so much for the Rockin Blogger Award. I have no idea how to get the button to post it though. I've been out of town for a few weeks and am just now getting caught up.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. It means bunches to me!!
