To much Snow!!!

Okay, when I prayed for snow I had no idea it would blizzard every where, BUT here! As much as I do love the snow, I would much rather have my friends and family safely here for the holidays! Sorry snow, I love them more! I am praying!!!

It's supposed to snow tonight! I know there are people who really don't want it to snow and have all these reasons why. Blah, blah, blah. I try to sympathise, but it's just so hard because I LOVE the SNOW!!! Eeeee!!! It's so white, fluffy, and snowman friendly. Ooooo...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

We've been studying Tozer in our care group, "The Pursuit of God". In it Tozer talks about Abraham and Isaac. He explains Abraham in exruciating agony over the determination to sacrifice his only son. Tozer explains that we all must face this agony to some degree in our lives. God tests us all. God sets before us the things we cherish the most and asks us to surrender it to Him, no matter the cost. Are we willing to give up the ones we cherish? Are we willing to give up treasures here on earth for treasures in heaven? It's a hard question to ask, but one we all must face if we are to follow the heart of God. He wants to be number one in our lives, never number two. Like Abraham, we must walk the road of agony and sacrifice with one determination in mind: to surrender to our Father's will and not our own.

4 months ago...

Well, I've been married almost a whole 4 months now. I ran into an old bank customer today (one of my favorite customers) and Wesley and I enlightened him to this amazing information. He was very impressed. Almost as impressed as his 48 years of marriage. He said everything we need to know in marriage you learn in the first four months. I think he might have been being polite though. (Again, he was one of my favorite customers.) Although, I'm sure he could tell that Wesley was pretty amazing, even in the five minutes we talked. How could four months of marriage to my Wesley not be amazing? I don't think it's possible.

A day of fasting and prayer for our nation and the upcoming elections.
We need to pray! We ALL need to pray. This election may very well change the course of our nation forever. We cannot sit back and allow the enemy to take control. We need to pray that we return to God and His ways.

We need to come together and PRAY.

I'm getting married tomorrow!

One side effect to getting married in one day is the lack of sleep caused by brain over load. I woke up at 3:30 a.m.

Wesley and I talked about how ironic it is that we spend months preparing for our wedding's (all people) and then it lasts for about three hours. I said it was sort of like the circle of life and our contribution to the "wedding world." I figure we all attend over a hundred weddings in our life time, eat their food, enjoy their toil and labor, it's only right that we take out turn in the cycle of things and throw a huge party where we feed and entertain others. After attending a life time of weddings I'd say we all break about even. This realization made me feel a little bit better about what we're spending on three hours, even if it is going to be an awesome party.

I'm so excited! I'm going to be a new last name tomorrow! Eeeeee!!!

8 days...

Oh my goodness, 8 days left people! Get the camera, grab a kleenex, and start believing in miracles...Casey Raquel Licari is getting married! If you're not a believer in miracles after this, than get someone to check your pulse!

Woo-hoo! Oh happy day!

21 Days...

We're at the 21 mark! Woosh...the time goes by. It's starting to get hard to keep track of the days, they just seem to be melting away. Now all that's left is a few fine details, a pedicure, a hair trim, a final dress fitting, and freaking out. Actually, I'm doing pretty well. I feel amazinlgy calm, except when I try to fall asleep at night and about a million and a half things start buzzing through my mind. What is it about turning off the light switch? I can fall asleep in a second when I'm just bumming on my couch, but the minute I get up to go to bed and lie down my eyes pop wide open and I become a thinking-crazy-person. I should just start sleeping on the couch!

21 days! Life couldn't be better...

Weekend Insights... I come!

I have my final dress fitting tomorrow. How nervous does that make someone? I still have seven weeks before my wedding day and I have a final dress fitting. I hope it fits when the big day comes! I think companies like to add more pressure to the already hectic day. They must all be in cahoots with each other. The wedding shops, the grocery stores, the diet companies...they are all in a giant conspiracy together. The sad thing is, I'm falling right into their trap.

Oh well! I come!!!

Ten Pounds

I've been walking a lot lately. I'm trying to lose ten pounds before my wedding day. I was thinking today, "Why is this so important to me?" If I was ten pounds thinner than I am now I would probably still REALLY want to lose ten pounds for my wedding day.

Girls are weird. Or maybe, our society is weird. Either way, I REALLY want to lose ten pounds before my wedding day! can be so complicated. I think I'm going to go eat a brownie.

53 days...

In a fastfood-gotta-have-it-zoom-zoom-world, waiting is not on the top "fun" list. God says that it's good to wait upon the Lord. Yes, we all know that waiting produces perserverance and all that great when we have to wait we grit our teeth, smile, and convince ourselves it's a good thing. Well, it is a good thing like Martha Stewart would say, but it's not an easy thing.

53 days until my wedding day!

My wedding day, now that's a good thing!

Missed You!

Well, I guess it's been a while since I plotted down my thoughts. I've been a busy creature. I got engaged and all, to the most wonderful man in the entire universe, so that has captured a lot of my attention.

So, right now I am sitting in my not-so-quiet apartment enjoying my free time to relax and write out a few thoughts. I had Spanish this morning which is sort of like sticking bamboo under my fingernails. I mean, I love my teacher, she is great. It's just the pressure of it all, the intense pressure. "Hola, mi nombre es Casey. ?Como esta? I just blew your mind, didn't I?

Well, there has been so much going on my little head lately it seems as though it would take me twelve posts to lay it all out. So, instead I just mentioned how much I dislike learning Spanish and threw some fabulous espanol your way. I'm sure your life has been changed. I really do think about deep stuff, it just doesn't seem to be coming out at the moment.

Peace out for now and have a great day!

A life time of labor,
a life time of service.
Faithful. Loving. Gentle.

How many times did I say, "I love you?"
How many unspoken words.
Memories. Talks. Winks.

Again, one day we'll embrace.
No more coughing, no more pain.
Forever. Jesus. Family.

One day at a time,
life ebbs away.
History. Choices. Loyalty.

You were a good one, Grandpa.
Good till the end.
Love. Forever. Goodbye.
