Starbucks, Friends and Homework

After coming through a wonderful weekend, I had a very pleasant evening with friends. Dwayne, Shane, Jaleesa, Melissa, Sam and I all went to the Secret Starbucks to study. That's it, that's all we did, just study. But it was a nice change to my rather dull schedule.

If ever you want a fun, interesting experience just hang out with these people. You'll spend hours quoting movies, acting out hypothetical scenarios, drinking coffee, and making awesome memories.

What a wonderful way to start out my week.

Oh how I long for morning!

So today was one of those days......I kind of felt like a comic strip character with the little scribbly cloud over my head; just a little disgruntled

(Disgruntled: "displeased and discontented; sulky; peevish." There couldn't have been a more perfect word to describe my mood.)

"It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him." - Lam. 3:22-24

Morning, come quickly!

I can't contain myself any longer....


Do you have any idea how hard it is to "plan" anything when you don't have a car of your own?

You can't even really say you have plans, because "plans" implies something that you are going to do. And really, you aren't guaranteed of doing anything if you aren't guaranteed of a way to get where you want to go.

Hence, a person without a car can never really have "plans."

I am at the mercy of all those dear friends who have cars.

So here I sit on my bed, feeling very much like a caged animal, longing to be outside to enjoy the warm sun and the beautiful weather.

Maybe someday I can make plans. As of right now I will just let my mind aimlessly wander so as not to disappoint myself with failed plans.

My Family Tree

In my "About Me" section I mentioned how many siblings I have and how "that is a story in itself."

Today, I am going to tell that story because I know how confusing it must sound when I talk about my step-mom, step-dad, 3 year old brother, sister, and the list goes on.

So here is how it is:

I was the first child of my parents Ron and Doreen Walsworth. 3 1/2 years later they had my sister Rachel.

When I was 7 my parents divorced.
My dad remarried when I was 9 to my step-mother, Aimee.
My mom remarried when I was 13 to my step-father, Kevin. He has a son, Johnathan, who is the same age as my sister Rachel. They are both 16 now.

My dad and step-mom have two, soon to be three, children together. There's my 3 year old brother Ronnie, my 1 1/2 year old sister Kimberly, and they will be having their third child on December 2.

This is my dad and step-mom's wedding.

My mom and step-dad's wedding.

Ronnie, me, Rachel and Kimmie

Rachel, Johnathan and me

This is my family!

More Homecoming Pics

Here are a couple more pictures from Homecoming that Lucy Garcia took. Seth is in these ones. (Jeremiah Parker took the three pictures from my previous post.)

This year I helped the college Sophomore class with their booth at Homefest to advertise the costumes for the Christmas program. Several students dressed up in the outfits to spread the word that we are in need of more suits and dresses.

Bethany, the class president, found four guys to dress up in the suits and top hats: Kin Hurst, Dustin Muir, Isaac and Seth Owens. Last year I helped her create beards for the male characters in the Christmas program, and this year we are going to put sideburns and mustaches on the guys. So to help authenticate the look we created sideburns for these four guys.

It really is a lot of fun and they look SO cool!

Bethany made Dustin and Kin's sideburns. Dustin kept cracking me up. I think he had WAY too much fun in this get up.

I made Isaac and Seth's. They both looked VERY cool! Unfortunately I do not have a picture of Seth.

Here Isaac was acting like a mannequin. He does it so well that it is kind of creepy. (I don't understand why I kept opening my mouth like that but it looks stupid. Just ignore it.)

The Future

It just hit me the other day that the future is so unclear to us. I mean, I realize that this is kind of a duh statement. But it really hit me like a ton of bricks in a way that it never had before.

One day you think you have everything planned out...and them WHAM!!! God throws something into the equation that doesn't seem to equal out with what you had in mind.

I was listening to the Mark Schultz song "Walking Her Home" yesterday and it brought back some painful memories. It reminded me of the dreams I had for my future. Boy have those dreams REALLY changed!

God simply reminded me though that "in all things [He] works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." (Rom. 8:28) Whatever God has in store for me is going to be SO GOOD! And I know that I can trust Him with my life.

"When my plans have fallen through, and I don't know what to do...When the dreams I dreamed have died and I need a place to hide, I just look unto the hills whence cometh my help."

I think I think too much...

I read into things.

I overanalyze things.

In my mind I start to play out the worst case scenario.

Negative thoughts rush in.

I begin to lose self-confidence and slowly slip into the pit of despair.

Ah! But wait. Then Jesus reaches down, pulls me out of that pit and reminds me that I am His child, and that none of His children are insignificant.


What a wonderful thing it is to be loved by the Creator of this world.
What a wonderful thing it is to know that He never has, and never will forget about me.
What a wonderful thing it is to have Jesus as your best friend.

Hmmm, what interesting things come to mind when you allow yourself to think.

I'm Changing My Status

So I've decided to become a Catholic mother.

"Mother Megan" - doesn't that have such a pleasant ring to it?
