he brought me out into a broad[way] place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me.

Mom's Visit

So mom came and got to see NYC!!! It was great having her here. She did lots of mom things...like my laundry and we got to see so many SHOWS!!! I think both of us like In The Heights the best. I cried in almost every song, I don't even know why. I think this acting school thing is making me even more emotional. IT WAS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL!! DONT JUDGE ME!!! I am exhausted from going going going. We got up at 5:40 am for the macy's parade and about that time for the Today show (I don't even want to talk about my experience at the Today show! ... all I will say is those little third graders in moms class better have been watching!!!) In conclusion I leave you with mom's pro's and con's to Lone Ranger travel to NYC! (but didn't the Lone Ranger have a side kick, Tanto or something...that doesn't make him very Lone : /

"Top 10 Reasons not to travel alone to New York

1. There is no one to talk to other than utter strangers!
2. It is really awkward eating alone in a crowed food court. You might have to resort to sharing half of your french fries with a stranger.
3. There is no one to take your picture.
4. It is boring!
5, There is no one to hold your luggage when you go to the bathroom.
6. You have to figure out things by yourself.
7. There is no one to bum gum off of.
8. It is hard to have a good laugh by yourself. Yes people will stare!
9. You might easily get mugged.
10. It is just lonely.

Reason to travel alone!
1. You are free to make all the choices!
2. You can relax and have quiet time.
3. You can listen in on very interesting conversations going on around you.
4. You have only yourself to blame if you make mistakes.
5. It is much cheaper than taking your children.
6. No arguing!
7. You meet new friends.
8. It gives you time to read.
9. No stress from getting separated from someone.
10. You don't have help keep up with someone eleses things."

4 Days!

Meet Celebrities
No big deal, Molly Shannon said "You are so handsome, you will do great in the business."
Can't wait to introduce mom to celebrities, because she will have no idea who they are. Two years ago she called me and said "Oh MY LORD CLAYTON! There is a guy on Ellen who looks and acts just like you. I think his name is Ashlyn Catcher?" "Ashton Kutcher mom?" "YA That's him!!!"
See ya soon!!!

5 Days

I am going to break my mom coming to visit countdown to simply ask for anyone who reads this to please pray for my dear friend Ashley Henley who is desperatly fighting leukemia right now. Things took a bad turn today and it is a reminder to me that Ashley is in the same state we are all in everyday, we are just unaware. Everyday our only hope in Christ. Creator and commander of the universe wrote our lives before we existed in a way that Glorfies Him, not us and makes Him God. These are my sweet friends that sent me my first care package, even before my mother sent one! I am so blessed by their friendship so please pray for them like you mean it, like you actually think God hears what you are saying.

the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir!
This summer I read Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire and I am so excited to finally get out to Brooklyn and see arguably the greatest gospel choir in the world. It is going to be a busy first day for mom, this is one of the the three stops we are going to make on mom's first full day in the city. I am going to take her to the evening service of the church I attend, Apostles.
