Have you ever looked back on your MySpace account?  All the random surveys on the bulletin board, your top 8, your choice of song to play on your profile page?  And then there's those of us who had Xanga.  For all you youngins, that was a blog site that existed before MySpace.  Unfortunately I still remember my login information for it and recently went back to read my posts from the Xanga days.  Wow.  How I still have friends from that era of my life is beyond me. Embarrassing. Thankfully, we don't look back on our questionable social media days to pick our friends.  To join SAO, you did not have to give up your MySpace password so the sisters could read the poems you posted as your notes (Oh, is that just me?). We've learned to move past all that.

What Will Be Your Story of 2015?

      There is something so refreshing about a new year.  I love to reflect on the past year and reflect on what I will accomplish in the new year.  This time last year I really thought a lot about what I wanted to do, and what I hadn’t made time for in my life.  I guess you could say I was beginning to create my “bucket list” of trips to make and people to visit.  One thing really stuck out to me, and that was to make a visit to a truly special friend.  And guess what!  I made it happen and it truly is one of my favorite memories of 2014.       Miss Jenny is one special woman that I will always look up to in my life.  She was my Children’s Minister who baptized me on Father’s Day on June 21, 1998 at Northside Christian Church.  She taught me what it meant to be selfless and to love the Lord with all my heart.  I remember her always running around on Sundays hugging the kids that may have had runny noses, or just painted with finger paint, but she did not care how “dirty” it
