Life as Nemesis knows it.....

A few weekends ago I went to Alton Towers with a few friends and I’d forgotten how much I love rollercoasters. Grant it, we ended up only getting on 2 as queueing for 70-80mins for a 30 second thrill really is a bit tedious.
But never the less those 30 secs where exhilarating.
There’s something exciting and scary about the unknown - I think that’s what makes rollercoasters so incredibly brilliant.

I’ve often heard life described as a rollercoaster - and in that respect I’ve definitely had my up/down moments. But recently I’ve been thinking about the future and all the possibilities that life has in store.
The last few months have been the most amazing yet most difficult of my entire life.
It feels as though I’ve stepped onto a rollercoaster - I’ve no idea what’s around the next corner, but the one think I’m confident about is that I’m supposed to be on it.
Whilst it’s turns and twists are surprising at times - it has been great.
Aaron and I have gone through some pretty big changes in life this year - it’s been refining and defining who we are and what we’re called to be.
This is definitely the beginning of an adventure. In some ways we’ve used a fast pass - and God has been so amazing and gracious and wonderful in placing key people around us and allowing that to happen.

I’m on this rollercoaster to the end. Others have jumped off already - and that’s cool. Other’s question what this rollercoaster is all about.
The one thing I’ve realised is that I can be so busy worrying about who is on, who is off, what people are saying, blah blah blah, that I actually miss the entire ride.
I don’t want to do that anymore.
I’m holding on for all it’s worth.....

We are standing on the edge of something much much bigger than us - and that’s the best thing about it.

I have been thinking about you and Aaron loads recently. I was at a meeting last week and a book was talked about - The Secret, Rhonda Byrne. As you know I don't tolerate any wafflers or B/S but this book although a bit out there at times - has made me think about you guys alot - especially Aaron and his huge map of the world! The basics are that we can achieve anything if we believe we can - At first I didn't understand how this could be reconciled with the Bible but then the book quoted Matthew - basically saying that praying to God or whoever else you happen to believe in is putting the energy out there - there is enough love, money, health etc for us all we just have to believe. There is movie available too and there is a free trailer online at www.thesecret.tv . They say that you should have a vision board (or huge map in Aarons case!!) because the unconscious mind will see it everyday and help you to focus on your goals.

Hi Jill,

I know we've never met and I'm a stranger to you, but I'm amazed at how much we have in common.

My name is Candace and I'm from Canada. I saw Aaron's band Bluetree at YC in Alberta about a week ago now. I managed to come across him on twitter somehow and now you as well.

Thank you for your insight on the rollercoaster of life. How true is it that so many people choose to get off the ride early and then miss out on so many of the ups, and yes, downs, of life.

I am also a mother of 2 children. My daughter is 5 and my son is 3. It's a challenge to raise them into the godly people I want for them to be because I struggle to be that godly influence with my own humanity stepping in on so many occasions.

One last thing: Thank you for sacrificing your family time so that your husband could come bless so many people here in Canada with his talents (with the rest of the band of course). It must have been a huge challenge to be by yourself for so long with the kids. I know I go crazy when I'm alone with my own for awhile.

God Bless!

רציתי לחלק אותכם במקרה שעברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך כשנתיים אחרי המקרה, הרגשתי מדוכאת, ללא שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל טיפול רפואי רגיל לא יכולתי להשתקם ולכן פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. המליצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר מכיל עיסוי איורוודה מפנק במיוחד אשר עורר לי את החושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. קשה לי להמחיש את השינוי אותו עברתי, אפילו אחרי טיפול מסאג שוודי ראשוני, השתפר לי המצב הרוח, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, מחויכת ומוכנה להמשך.

עיסוי האיורוודה הוא עיסוי רפואי משולב עם ריח של קטורת, מוזיקה נעימה ומוזיקה נעימה. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע מפנק מעל המגבת אחרי שחשפנו את הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. נמרח שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, אח"כ תנועה עדינה ומלטפת מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. לאחר כמה תנועות מפנקות עוברים לצד השני של הגוף, לאחר אותם תנועות על צידו השני יש תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות כי הגוף התרגל למגע נעים ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול פרטי של [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Authors/Author2173.aspx]מעסה[/url][/b] מקצועי עד בית הלקוח!

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר חוויתי מסאג שוודי באיכות כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע כלכך מפנק שלא תיארתי שיכול להיות. אני ממליצה בחום לכל אחד ואחת אשר חשבו על [b][url=http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=682132]מסאז[/url][/b]', עיסוי או סתם חוויה בלתי נשכחת באירוע אישי על Spa-VIP.co.il.

auto insurance missouri hi fabulous little web-site ya have here :-) I apply the very same theme on my website yet somehow for whatever nutty factor it appears to stream easier on yours despite the fact that yours contains a little more material. Have you been getting some plugins or widgets which speed it up? Do you think you could share the titles so I might use them in my personal blog so twilight eclipse followers could watch twilight eclipse online trailers and clips quicker I’d be thankful – kudos in advance Mike - auto insurance texas
