My Little Pity Party

Tonight as I was driving home the top Christian countdown was on the radio and the host was playing clips of an interview with Mathew West. Just by the way he was saying what he was saying, I knew this was something I needed to hear. 

He talked about how he and some friends came up the lyrics of this song,

then the music played.....

And I hear these words.......
......'cause everyday it is sinking in
and I have to say good bye all over again

I started to think about my Papaw, it's been 12 years this month and I still can't control myself when I think about him.....

I'm dreaming of the day
When I'm finally there with you
Save a place for me
Save some grace for me

Oh I pray he is saving a place for me!!

And then I heard....

I have asked the questions why
but I guess the answer's another time
so instead I'll pray with every tear
and be thankful for the time I had you here
So you just save a place for me

I took a deep breath and started thinking about my dear friend. 

So many times I have asked the question why, so many times I have prayed for the answer. And I am so frustrated I have to wait!

But maybe if she saves a place for me, we can sit and she can tell me ALL about it?!

Then I hear....

I wanna live my life just like you did
and make the most of my time just like you did
I wanna make my home up in the sky
just like you did

I began smiling, remembering all the things my PaPaw taught me.

My Papaw was a very honorable man. A man that ALWAYS put God first. A man that made the most of his life. He would do for anyone who wasn't able to do for themselves. He never met a stranger and there is no one that could EVER say an unkind word about him.

As I thought about this I began to sing, out loud, with the chorus.....

Save a place for me....
Save a place for me.....

Maybe because I am thinking of the 2 of them at the same moment in time, they are up there sitting together.....

...Saving a place for me??

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
