Mom & Dad

I often fail to tell my parents how much I appreciate them and all they do for me. I am one of the lucky ones. I fall into the category of truly having a happy childhood. My parents are truly the most amazing parents. I am very lucky to have their complete support in everything. They have sent me to a great school (that I often complain about), they bought me a new laptop for college, they bought me a brand-spanking new car for college and they pay my insurance on top of that. They help me when my bank account is running dry (which happens every month). They give so much and ask for almost nothing in return. I am truly blessed. Aside from the material things my parents provide for me. They also provide something that some children do not receive while growing up. I grew up in a loving home where I was encouraged to be involved in many activities and throughout all those they supported me. I grew up in a home where I knew what it meant to be a christian and I knew right from wrong. I was absolutely loved and still am.

This post is dedicated to my sweet, loving, and generous parents.
Charles & Terri Sheffield. The 2 greatest parents, no joke. Thank you for everything you guys do for me. I love you both so very much and am so very blessed to have you both as parents. :)

So, tonight creativity sparked inside of me and I ended up cooking dinner for my roomates. I call my new recipe "Fajita Stir-Fry" I know, so creative. Ha. I decided to share my recipe with you all.

Here's the ingredients:
2 lbs. Beef Fajita Meat1 box of Rice on the Side (Beef Flavor)1 Package Broccoli (Frozen or Fresh) Some butterMrs. Dash SeasoningMeat TenderizerBlack Pepper

How To:
1) Take the package of the beef fajita meat and season the whole package with Mrs. Dash Seasoning, Meat Tenderizer, and Black Pepper to your own liking. Cook the meat in a frying pan.
2) Cook the Rice on the Side just as the box tells you to do so. (Add seasonings if you wish)
3) Pour the broccoli in a boiling pot half full of water and add 2 tablespoons of butter and sprinkle a little of Mrs. Dash in the pot with it to soak up the flavor. 4) After meat is done cooking set somewhere off to the side until you need it again, but keep in the same pan.
5) Once rice is finished, set aside as well.
6) Once broccoli is tender, drain and set aside.
7) Take the fajita meat and begin warming it up again. Add rice and broccoli and mix together. Add a little more of Mrs. Dash and black pepper to the mix and stir until it is all mixed together.
8) Serve and enjoy.

Here is how mine turned out. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Hope you like this!

First Week Of School = Exhausted

Kenzie inspired me to blog tonight...about school.

UCO started school this week. My schedule is ridiculous. I have an early morning class and a night class. So far, I love all my professors. They are all fairly leinient and down to earth. :)

However, this class will be the death of me:
Meet Remedial Math. He hates me. That's right, I said it. REMEDIAL MATH. Shoot me now. Just when I thought I was understanding it, wrong!!!

With that said, I am looking forward to tomorrow. Only 2 classes because my Philosophy professor cancelled class!! Wooo. That means I get out for the day at 1:00 pm. When I get back to my apartment tomorrow, NAP TIME!!

In Him,

This one is for Keisha! :)

So, if you have been following my blog then you know I recently had my hair screwed up. My lovely aunt who has been cutting my hair ever since I was born fixed it for me. Keisha wanted me to post a picture of my new hair. So here is the result:

Not too shabby eh? It's pretty simple, for now. :)

If you went to Memorial Road last night then you know how great worship was! Let's just say that Cardboard Confessions are now my new favorite.

I have an answer!

The preacher from my home church answered my question about 1 Corinthians 11:5-6 and in case any of you guys were wondering, I will post the answer.

To answer your question about I.Cor.11:5,6 you must first understand the backgound of the Corinth church and the happenings in the city of Corinth. The church Paul is writing to has had many hardships in staying seperated from sin. They have experienced incest and harlotry. In chapter 11, Paul instructs them on Christian order. One sign of prostitution at the time in Corinth was women with short hair (or as Paul says in the Greek, uncovered). It was dishonorable for a woman of God to shave or cut her hair short because she could be mistaken for a prositute. Some women who had been prostitutes but then were baptized used a veil to cover their once shaven heads, honoring God by being covered. Look at verse 15, it says plainly that long hair is a glory to her and is her covering. Don't worry, hair styles change and society gives its meaning to things generation after generation. The important lesson we must learn as did the first century church is to be careful how we live and watch the example we set for others because society is watching our every move.

Hope this helps.

In Him,
