December's Apostolic Male Model!!!

Weeeeeeeellllllll girls...
It may be a few days after Christmas BUT...
CLASSIC MARY MOMENTS has ONE last END OF THE YEAR PRESENT for you!!!

WHO is the last Apostolic Male Model of the year????
???????????????????????????????????????
.
?????????????????
Can I get a drum roll please???
.
It's NONE other THAN the ONE AND ONLY....


SETH CLEVELAND!!!!

Can I get a WOOT, WOOT!?!?!?!
20-year-old Seth Cleveland is a VERY talented young man! He is a hardworking college student!!! He is a CLEVELAND soooo of course he is GOOD WITH HIS MONEY!!! He is always VERY helpful. He is a lot of fun to hang out with!!! He has been singing since he was just a child. He is AWESOME on the basketball court and Volley ball court! Oh and he is cool too...like when we all play volley ball as a youth group, and us girls don't hit the ball, WHICH IS QUITE OFTEN, Seth does NOT get all mad and yell at us LIKE SOME GUYS DO!!! He just trys to get the ball for us...which is FINE WITH ME!!! LOL! He looks out for the girls in his church, treats us like sistas and makes sure we're treated right. He is faithful, sincere AND he is a preacher of the word! One thing that I really ADMIRE about Seth is that even though he is really good at sports, he doesn't follow continually after the sport leagues of this world which is quite rare!
.
Another cool thing about Seth, he will GO OUT OF THE WAY FOR YOU!!! Yeah, girls, THATS RIGHT!!! Like last week we were having a bonfire in my back yard and makin s'mores, and I was like okaaaaaay which one of you guys wanna hold this s'more of the fire for me so that it gets warm ALL the way around and the guys all laughed(Yeah I was makin a joke!) but the seth was like, okaaaay let me see it, and him and my brother John contrapted this s'more holder outta medal hangers to hold the whole entire s'more while it was dipped into the fire...yeah the s'more slipped out and burned to death BUT...its the thought that counts!!! ;)
Talent, anointing, faithful, hardworking, GOOD WITH HIS MONEY, (Girls!!! DO NOT GO FOR A GUY THAT IS IN HUGE DEBTand SLIDES THE CARD!!! That is my advice!!! LOL!) Helpful and GOES OUT OF THE WAY FOR YOU!!!

Seth is ALSO often known to the girl's as ....
THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY!!!
Not just because he is an INCREDIBLE drum player...
BUT BECAUSE when the girls see SETH CLEVELAND....
 Their hearts go...

Scarecrow!!!

Sooo right before Thanksgiving my sister asked me to hang this scarecrow in the window one day while she was at work. So the next day I did. When I was done hanging it up I left the blinds up then when and sat at the computer for like two minutes. As I was getting up from the computer just a few moments later, my heart LEAPED and I like totallly had a panic attack as I looked up and saw a SHADOW looming in our front window!!! I was about to let out a BLOOD CURDLING scream when I realized, it was THE SCARECROW I had JUST HUNG UP TWO MINUTES AGO!!! Bahahahahahahaha!!!

.
YES!!! I got scared by MY OWN
SCARECROW!!!! :D

That kind of man!!!

Welllll...Last night at the Single Chick's party, we OF COURSE got to talking about what kind of man we want to marry and of course I just HAD to talk about Bro. Ikerd and it made me repost this!!!
.
I remember about two years ago, attending Bro. Donald Ikerd's funeral. His funeral was actually very uplifting. It had A LOT of Bro. Ikerd's humor woven into everything that was said. There was one point where they started playing clips his preaching. They played this one clip that was one of his last messages he preached before he died. He said in the message that he knew his ticker was about to stop ticking and that he would soon be going home, and as he talked to the saints his voice broke down and was beginning to cry. He talked about how he was gonna be leaving, but that there was STILL so many more souls to reach...so many people lost...who was gonna reach them. And as I listened to him, I felt myself starting to tear up, not because of Bro. Ikerd's death, but because of his burden for the lost, even still, till his death. I just remember sitting there thinking like, WOW...this man is crying about dying...but ONLY because he wants to keep reaching the lost...WOW!!! I was talking to my sister about it the other day, and I told her, THATS THE KIND OF MAN I WANT TO MARRY!!! A man like Bro. Ikerd! Not because he was a missionary or an incredible preacher, teacher and pastor, but becuase of his burden for souls. Thats how I want to spend my forever with a man, REACHING THE LOST!!!

Final 3!!!

These are the FINAL flyer designs that have made it to the last voting...OH YEAH...I added one more for you all to choose from!!!!!! :)

The other day we were having our youth Christmas party and we're like playing this game called Catch Phrase. And so basically we divide up into two teams, guys VS girls...OF COURSE...and what you have to do is pass around this disk and you click it and different words come up and when its your turn you have to describe the word without saying it and try and make your team guess what the word is. So someone gets it and to describe their word they are like, ''Something you do before taking a test!" Sooooooooo like ALL the college and highschool students yell out, "STUDY!!!" and at the the same EXACT time as them i'm yelling out, "PRAY!!!" HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The RIGHT answer was in fact STUDY!!! I'm like OMW thats right, You STUDY before a test,  I totally didn't even think of that!!! Bahaha!!!
Yeah, I know this is gonna come as a surprise to you all, BUT I wasn't exactley a STRAIGHT A student!!! I know, I know, you ALL are probabley VERY SHOCKED right now!!! BUT you know what they say???

Soooo I was just trying to keep PRAYER in school...thats ALL I was doing!!!! ;) ;)

Guess what I found???

MY BLUE SHIRT BABY!!!
I just found my favorite blue shirt!!!!!!!! SCREAM!!!! (Shirt in the pic on the left) Its been missing for OVER 6 months!!! I HAVE SEARCHED soooo hard for this shirt!!! I have cleaned my room soooooo many times and have NOT been able to find it!!! One time I even went through EVERY SINGLE drawer, I lifted up my whole bed and cleaned underneath it AND still could NOT fint it!!! I was sooooo FRUSTRATED!!! My room was spotless and I couldn't find it!!! Just now, my room WAS TRASHED and I was  just searching my room for some vicotin and I couldn't find the vicotin BUT I FOUND MY FAVORITE BLUE SHIRT!!!!! Who cares if my mouth is in pain...I look sooooooo GOOOOD in this shirt!!!!!!!! Its kinda like the color of this font but more aqua I think....I'll have to post a pic on the blog ASAP!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Thank You JESUS!!! This was A GREAT Christmas PRESENT!!!

Welcome Guest???

As we were driving home the other night, my eye caught site of a bulletin on a church right by our house. The sign said: In every service God is our welcome guest! I was like oh thats cool...but then I was thinking about it and I was like, guest? How can GOD be a guest at church? I mean HELLLLOOO...its HIS HOUSE!!! Think about it!!! A guest is someone that doesn't belong there but you welcome them anyway and hopefully they become a permanent part!!! God is NOT a guest, the church and all the world for that matter is HIS TERRITORY!!! We are the ones that didn't belong, but he brought us anyways and welcomed us with his love until we became a part. So often we're praying that God would be in our services, BUT God is already there!!! We are the ones that got to get in tune with him!!! We are the ones that gotta reach out and TOUCH HIM!!! We are the ones that are PRIVILEDGED to have the HONOR to enter into HIS PRESENSE. Every time you go to church thank GOD for the invitation! REMEMBER: YOU ARE THE GUEST!!!

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."  (Hebrews 4:14-16)

#5 You are soooo ADORABLE and CUTE!!! I think you have the cutest blog ever!!! (Check out #5's blog HERE) I LOVE that you LOVE the color pink!!! It's my absolute favorite color TOO!!! I think it is SOOOO cooool that you have a PINK camera! I used to have a hot pink one but I broke it! I used to have a light pink one but I lost it!!! LOL! So I admire the fact that a little girl like you has managed to be more RESPONSIBLE and take BETTER CARE of her pink camera than a 27-year-old has with TWO PINK CAMERAS!!! This is a very good trait to have soooo keep it up girl!!! Keep ♥LOVING ♥JESUS♥  and you'll ALWAYS stay SWEET!!! ;)

Soooo in January, I am going to be traveling around for a little while in New Mexico, with my friend Lorraine Orozco as she goes around to churches singing, giving her testimony and selling her books. So she told me that If wanted to make a flier for my blog to promote my blog or whatever I could.

He said that he would and NOT only would he come up with ONE design, BUT several for me to choose from...I'm LIKE WOW THANKS!!! Soooo since last night this is what he has come up with. I honestly like ALL OF THEM ALOT, but there is one that I just absolutley love, love, love, I mean like ADORE...lol...BUT before I make the final decision, I want to know what YOU, ALL of my blog readers think?

Not EVERYONE...

NOT everyone ...
Can mess up the world's easiest recipe of no-bake cookies!!!
BUT...
I CAN!!!

EVERYONE says, MARY, how can you MESS up NO BAKE COOKIES???
Weeeeeelllllll...you see what happened is that I got a BIG head!!! I LOVE THESE COOKIES!!! They are like SOOOOOOOO goOoOoOoOd!!! I was thinkin okaaaaaaaaay i'm such an AWESOME baker i'm totally gonna ROCK this EASY recipe!!! Sooooo you know what I did??? I didn't read the DIRECTIONS!!!! LOL! When I was all done and could NOT figure out WHY my cookies wern't stickin together...I thought...hmmmm what do the directions say??? LOL!!! It said to bring the chocolate to A BOIL!!! Oooooops...i just let it melt!!!!



Heres what they are SUPPOSED to look like...

Ingredients
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
1.In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened. ["Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies. If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly."] <-----Really THEY WON'T!!! I KNOW!!! Bahaha!!!

I'm gonna try it again for the Single girl's cookie exchange this Monday!!! THIS TIME i'm gonna read the SIMPLE directions!!! :)
Remember!!!
No task is ever to small that can't be done WRONG!!!!
(Fortune Cookie quote)
 
READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!
READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!!!
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!!!
 
Its kinda the same way in life! None of us are SOOOO great of a Christian that we can just go our own way! We gotta FOLLOW God's directions!!! PRAY! Read your Bible AND GO TO CHURCH!!!

Soooo today my mom and I were doing some Christmas baking at her house. We're just mixin an stiring, listenening to Christmas music, havin a good sweet, mother/daughter time together. All of the sudden, over the radio comes on the song Rudolph The Red Nosed Raindeer! I've always liked this song, you know, its just kind of happy and fun....WELLL...My mom is like, "YOU KNOW, I've NEVER understood this song!!!" [So i'm thinkin like oh great, here comes a lecture about how this song has NOTHING to do with the birth of Christ...(Which is TRUE...BUT...its still a fun favorite of mine)] so she is like, "I've NEVER understood this song" ...she pauses then continues... "if I WERE Rudolph, I would have just told THOSE OTHER Raindeers WHATS UP!!!" She's like waving flour in her hands, "I wouldn't of let them treat me like that!!! I just woulda let them know!!!" HAHAHAHAHA!!! I was  totally laughing like, "MOM, I'm SURE YOU WOULD HAVE!!! I'm SURE YOU WOULD HAVE!!!" (You know, MY MAMMA AIN'T NO ONES DOOR MAT!!! Trust me!!! ;)
.
Sooooooooo I saw this and thought...
