So, I've been looking over my blog/some other blogs and realized that I only post things that I deem "major life events" but I don't think that's the point. Being single and having no children, I feel, means posting things on a very rare basis SO I've decided to use this a a virtual tour of "what's on Meredith's mind" or things I've done or what is happening in my life. Something I think was pretty cool: last Friday we hung out at Cline's house which was great in itself but they had planned some super fun games from the show Minute to Win It. Needness to say, I think I dominated. I'm not a competitive person so I guess I have a lot of talen for doing random/weird things, and I like it!!!! I also made a 4 layer multi-colored velvet(red velvet cake recipe) cake that was AMAZING, in taste and appearance, if I do say so myself! Pictures to come later, I realized that my camera is permanently out of commission:( On another note, I am in the process of painting a mural on my bedroom wall. I was going to buy a painting but at the price of $100 and it wasn't quite what I had imagined, I decided I could do better! If you know me(and my squiggly line habbits) it is a work in progress but hopefully will be done shortly. I was blog-stalking( don't judge, you do it too!) and I was reading how someone had come to Christ and was making a lot of life changes due to that decision. Someone had made a comment about a link to an anti-GCM website. I followed the link and for about a week, I really didn't know what to think about the website, the content, etc. It made me question myself, my friends, people who I look up to and highly regard, and then one day after reading something not really related in 2 Corinthians 9(7Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.) I realized that God gave us all free will and its what we do with it that matters. It's not what religion we are, what denomination we identify with, who we hang out with or where our loyalties lye. The thing that matters is if you know the truth about God giving His son for your sins, accepting it, and making choices througout your life to guide you in a direction to continually follow Him and the truth. Where it leads you, whomever it leads you to, how you get there and what you do along the way are minor details compared to why.
