A song and some pics

Sung to the tune of She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes.

Up and down the mountain there she goes.
Up and down the mountain there she goes.
She's got lots of friends in need, so she'll fall upon her knees.
Up and down the mountain there she goes.

She'll be runnin' to her Father yes she will!
She'll be runnin' to her Father yes she will, yes she will!
She'll be runnin' to her Father, She'll be runnin' to her Father
She'll be runnin' to her Father yes she will.

The mountains are deep and the valley's wide. There is a darkness that comes with grief that know one can really know. The darkness is as light to you but my eyes have not seen. Show me your light that I may place it within me. If that light comes in, the darkness will surely flee. Take that light to my friends for they need it more than me. Take that light lest they forget that YOU are true. Though death has ravaged their homes and souls still you are there. Show us your way. Show me your way.

Father would you reach out to Joe and Sarah and the fam, Would you touch Rosanna, Erik, Jamie, Doug, Eli and mama and papa and the fam over seas. For all my friends who are feeling the loss of loved ones. Father extend your love into their lives for each of them are men and women of You. Take our lives and let them be consecrated Lord to Thee.

Couldn't find the pics, but a prayer is worth a thousand pictures.

Saying no to bitternes

I have decided that I would like to live a life of forgiveness and love. I hope that I always love married people and people with children. i have seen too many people lose out on life and blessings because they pine for marriage or children. I love my life of singleness. Being able to live fully abandoned to my King, wow! Yep, just wanted to let you all no that I will not be a bitter woman. Thank you.

A lot happens when you are gone!

Apparently if you leave for the summer your friends will go private and then when you try to see what is going on you can't. So if you read my blog and have gone private my e-mail is sherryleep@ Please let me in I want to rejoice with you and pray for you in times of sorrow.

Just for you!

This is for my avid readers who are missing their dose of wit by moi. Mostly Mom! I am going to make this efficient as I am wasting time that is not mine to waste.

Things new and wonderful:

My mama came and helped me organize my room and I am moving into a 7 day clean streak. Thanks mom!

I am in my third year of nursing. I feel comfortable and accepted by my classmates. It helps that I am once again comfortable and accepting of who I am. I am moderately loud and witty. It is true I have been able to make my mates laugh. I love making people laugh, just ask my roomies.

I have discovered that people with postive attitudes live positive lives, not perfect but definitely more joyful. When it's cold outside it means that it is the perfect weather to read my text and when it's sunny it is the perfect day to walk to school and sit outside. Look for the silver lining people or pessimism will suck you in.

I may be finished my nursing program in exactly 12 months or enjoying a very laid back school schedule.

I get to lead a group at my church with two of the most bizarre and wonderful people I know. One I got to see find freedom in worship when in Kansas City and the other I am watching blossom and discover how wonderful she is. Yay for extended family.

Had lunch with someone I value and hope to know better!

Going to do a presentation on Friday.

Okay only one heading this time, but I will share things that I have been learning bout and from God later.

swish, swish...just dusting off the cob webs

Wow! I went soooooo long with out posting. It helps a lot if you can enter a web address than run 200 meters and when you get back the screen is still loading. My brother in law asked me once if I was more city girl than farm girl now that I have lived in the city. I am without a doubt still farm girl. I love the slow pace of farm life. The stillness of the night when all little heads have gone to bed. Sigh!
Tomorrow I head back to school and will be 12-20 months away from finishing my degree. YIPEEE!
We have moved to a cute little house on Main Street and recently had our first planned guests. It was positively lovely.
That's it for now, have a great day!!!

Facebook and other info...

I have decided I am not a groupie. Computer communication via facebook is not really my thing. I don't care about videos, concerts, moods. I am currently working psych so if you want me to assess your mood feel free to drop in, but I can't guarantee I'll post my mood. Currently I have a fabulous mood. I love my clinical and my instructor and all my mates. I believe I will be a psych nurse. I am going to get my RPN and RN then I will hae many opotunities for work and experience. I love being a nurse. I was made for this. Mood tip of the day: get your doctor to recommend 3000 units of Vitamin D/day than get a test done to see if you are deficient. It works wonders in our house and we are afflicted with various mentalness. Here are some pics of a furry friend, who I secretly hope will one day live with me or that I will one day have a friend like him. And some pics of my beautiful sis and handsome nephew.

Funniest Story Ever (this is not me!!)

Wax is not your friend! CAUTION: Be prepared to laugh out loud...I laughed till I almost cried as I could just see this happening! All hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises of easy, painless removal - The epilady, scissors, razors, Nair And now...the wax. My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, fix dinner, and play with the kids. I then had the thought that would ring painfully in my mind for the next few hours: "Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out of the medicine cabinet." So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom. It was one of those "cold wax" kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub the strips together in your hand, they get warm and you peel them apart and press them to your leg (or wherever else) and you pull the hair right off. No muss, no fuss How hard can it be? I mean, I'm not a genius, but I am mechanically inclined enough to figure this out. (YA THINK!?!) So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each other stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius kicks in so I get out the hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees. ("Cold wax," yeah...right!) I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around it tight and pull. It works! OK, so it wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't too bad. I can do this! Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all wayward body hair and maker of smooth skin extraordinaire. With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids, I sneak back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting championship. I drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet. Using the same procedure, I apply the one strip across the right side of my bikini line, covering the right half of my *hoo-hoo* and stretching down to the inside of my butt cheek (yes, it was a long strip) I inhale deeply and brace myself....RRRRIIIPPP!!!! I'm blind!!! Blinded from pain!!!!....OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! Vision returning, I notice that I've only managed to pull off half the strip. CRAP!!! Another deep breath and RRIIPP!! Everything is swirly and spotted. I think I may pass out...must stay conscious...Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathe, breathe...OK, back to normal. I want to see my trophy - a wax covered strip, the one that has caused me so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in the glory that is my triumph over body hair. I hold up the strip! There's no hair on it. Where is the hair??? WHERE IS THE WAX??? Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see the hair, the hair that should be on the strip. I touch. I am touching wax. CRAP! I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body, which is now covered in cold wax and matted hair. Then I make the next BIG mistake...remember my foot is still propped up on the toilet? I know I need to do something. So I put my foot down. DANG!!!!!!!! I hear the slamming of a cell door. *Hoo-Hoo*?? sealed shut! Butt?? Sealed shut! I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do and think to myself "Please don't let me get the urge to poop. My head may pop off!" What can I do to melt the wax? Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!!! I'll run the hottest water I can stand into the bathtub, get in, immerse the wax-covered bits and the wax should melt and I can gently wipe it off, right??? WRONG!!!!!!! I get in the tub - the water is slightly hotter than that used to torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment - I sit. Now, the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued together is having them glued together and then glued to the bottom of the scalding hot water. Which, by the way, doesn't melt cold wax. So, now I'm stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cement-epoxied myself to the porcelain!! God bless the man who had convinced me a few months ago to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!!! I call my friend, thinking surely she has waxed before and has some secret of how to get me undone. It's a very good conversation starter - "So, my butt and who-ha are glued together to the bottom of the tub!" There is a slight pause. She doesn't know any secret tricks for removal but she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to know exactly where the wax is located, "Are we talking cheeks or who-ha?" She's laughing out loud by now...I can hear her. I give her the rundown and she suggests I call the number on the side of the box. YEAH!!!!! Right!! I should be the joke of someone else's night. While we go through various solutions , I resort to scraping the wax off with a razor. Nothing feels better then to have your girlie goodies covered in hot wax, glued shut, stuck to the tub in super hot water and then dry-shaving the sticky wax off!! By now the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike and I'm pretty sure I'm going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for this event. My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving grace.... the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax. What do I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on and OH MY G**!!!!!!! The scream probably woke the kids and scared the dickens out of my friend. It's sooo painful, but I really don't care. IT WORKS!! It works!! I get a hearty congratulation from my friend and she hangs up I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and then notice to my grief and despair.... THE HAIR IS STILL THERE.......ALL OF IT!!!!!!!!!! So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I'm numb by now. Nothing hurts. I could have amputated my own leg at this point. Next week I'm going to try hair color...... Now that's funny . Notttttttttt Send this on to other ladies who need a good laugh

I remembered the other lesson!

Hey Tim Horton's/ Revival/ walking buddy

I remembered the other lesson, Fix my eyes on Jesus for he is the one who has made my path and if I look at other's paths I will get distracted/discouraged/jealous. No one is walking the walk set before me, if I ask He will teach. Thanks for the walk:)

More of Life

"The Chocolate Fairy Strikes Again" - the plot thickens...

"What can't a cat do some light reading?"

Women's Retreat

Well congratulations you made it to the end of my picture blog. I wrote my super important exam today and came home feeling reeeeeaaaaallllllllyyyyyy bad. So I was grumpy and knew that I couldn't do anything about it so I tried to change my attitude. I had a bath and than went to do some worship. Cried and talked with my wonderful nursing roomie. I think I maybe didn't do as horrible as I think I did, but God is in control and I did what I could. The lady in green is my fantastically pregnant sister, who I get to go seen in less than 11 sleeps. She's gonna have a baby in less than 40 sleeps. If it goes later than that she would be way over due:)

Post # 76 The New Name Game

My wonderful friend, Rachel, was over to visit on Monday. We were talking about her pregnancy and baby names. I have successfully obliterated any hope of having any opportunity of naming her child. We agreed not to laugh at each other's childrens names until their fifth birthday. Who knew it was so easy to make fun of people's names with the last name Fehr. Not before you go and get all offended I would change the sound of the name to fur or fair as appropriate to accomplish the name mocking. Do I post the names and hope that no has named their child this?...hmmm... I think so. In honour of menno tradition the first is Fay Fehr = pfeffeureneuse. #2 Trade Fehr= trade fair or Fair Trade(Go MCC!) #3 Job Fehr, #4 Spruce Fehr = Spruce Fir #5 Doing Fehr - Conversation:
" Hi Who are you?"
" Doing Fehr."
" No I said who are you not how are you?"
" Doing Fehr."
"Look buddy I want to know your name, than I will ask how you are!?"
" Yes, Doing Fehr"
"You little..."

You get the idea.

We than moved on to the ever so spiritual point and read. We may have used a Bible, but we definitely used a cook book and my Med-Surg text. Very funny! we had Boiling Fehr, Stirring Fehr. I wish I had written them down. So if you are bored just grab a random book and match a name to your last name or just think of how to make fun of first names. If you would like to ensure that your child's name is mock proof. Just drop me a line and I can have a looksy for a small, financially challenged student fee!

Well I hope you enjoyed this as much as me. Ciao! Sorry if anyone was offended or now does not like their name. Just know that my name can be scary, hairy, fairy, airy, berry or just add bobbins. There is also a song that can be brutalized with my name in it so don't feel to sorry for yourself:)

Walking with God

I have been pondering this week my walk with God. I often seek to turn to others and ask them if they have the same things on their plate as me. So far I have found similarities, but no plate is the exact same. I think, actually I know that He does this so we can have friends that sort of understand but in the end we have to turn to Him. I has been nice to be turning to him first than to others. I find that my desire(propensity??) to gossip has diminished greatly since when I go to Him, He gives me insight. Where I have anger and resentment toward someone he opens up my heart and mind to see where they are at and how to pray for them. I really serve a great and marvelous God.

I don't want to know anymore!

I have decided that I am enjoying the mystery of the chocolate. I will just choose to dream about who this secret admirer might be.
Girls are moving in today and tomorrow. AAAHHH! I hate transition I can't figure out which way is up. I am so glad that they are moving in though.

Random things

Just thought I should update this baby. I have been sick over the past 4 weeks off and on. Finally went to the Doc and he gave me an antibiotic which I am hoping will heal me and not create super bugs. But my hope is in God not the meds.

My clinical is totally whacked(at least from my perspective). We were suppose to be at RUH, but with the Norwalk walking aroud we were transferred to a nursing home. It was an alright experience. PRAYER REQUEST: I need to know the right questions to ask my prof so I understand what she wants and then the ability to retain that info. I missed one day this week and slept for all of it minus 4-6 hours of 24. I am considerering talking to our clinical placement person and seeing if I can do another medicine rotation if this one continues as it is. I want to feel confident in my skills and right now I just do not have it.

So nice to have only 3 classes, but I struggle with doing my readings. I did a pharmacy one today and was greatly encouraged by the information I read, and that I learned!

Well we are losing two roomies, but I am super excited for them to fulfill the plans God has for them. Lindsay is moving to where it will be more beneficial for her. I know you are thinking what living at the Girl house is not beneficial. Yes it is true people sometimes God has greater plans and better plans than living with three of his fabulous daughters. Goldie is moving on to more responsible pastures. We are sad and excited for her. We have peace in all of this that God will either move us or bring us the right roomies.

Friends and Church
They are one in the same. Roxane and I have committed to praying on Friday nights for the lost and wandering sheep. Others have joined us and it is amazing to see the unity that we have. One person will speak a scripture and another testify to what they have said in that they were just thinking it or they had read the same scripture earlier. Also one will feel that a certain action should be taken and another will have it in their heart about the same. It is a very exciting time people.

Well that is my life in a nutshell. Thanks for all your prayers.

Exciting News!

I am having great days. I am not freading (combination of frettting and dreading) my clinical like I did last semester. I miss my group, but I have made two great buddies who are both Christians. One went to Bethany and the other CMU. How cool is that! God is reviving me bit by bit and I am beginning to feel like my new self. The one who desires more to do Yahweh's will than her own. The one who doesn't care what people think, but cares deeply that they know about relationship with Him. Yay! He is also doing some other stuff. hee hee hee.

Hey sister dear call me if I don't call you soon!

Confessions of a Princess

I am very excited for this coming week and very scared all at the same time. I will be starting my second round of clinical. I love doing clinical and I love learning. I love everything about it except for how long it takes me to collect data. We have 2.5 hours on Tuesday to collect our pt. info, then we work 8.5 hours on the wed/ thurs. We are expected to be able to competently care for 2 pts. by the end of this clinical. This doesn't seem as though it should be difficult, but because we are students we have to wait for our prof before we can do a lot of our care. I hope that I can show my prof this round that I am capable, so I will be able to do stuff without direct supervision.

I would like to be an influencer of my circumstances and surroundings of the conversations and attidudes of my peers/friends. The plan is to inquire of the LORD before I speak or act. This will recquire much patience(not a great quality of my life) and silence(better than patience but difficult when annoyed). So there you have it. TIme for me to put my plans in actio. Ciao!
