Took a little break from blogging for a while. Allowing myself to be taught. Meeting new people, discovering things about others. Sharing sweet tears. Allowing myself to be broken and trusting people to help me rebuild. Opening up to new things and leaving things behind.

You won't relent until you have it all, my heart is yours. - Jesus Culture

Beautiful week at RYM.
I was so excited to be able to go back as a chaprone this year.  Just seeing Christ so alive there was amazing.  Learing about our friendship with God, and how it is His opinion that truly matters.  Seeing acceptance of people, crazy late nights, dancing like we're dumb, silly faces, true tears, raw hearts, open emotions, truth telling, and God's glory.

In the Summer Time

Already in the middle of summer.  Spending lazy days outside.  Procrastinating till the last possible second to do things for my summer classes.  Coffee dates, and beach days.  Its been relaxing so far with little spurts of crazyness, and I'm loving every second!

A simple day with a powerful meaning.

Thank You Abba!

Falling asleep early, and waking up before the sun. This I not how I intended to start my Saturday, but I am glad That it began that way. It's peaceful and beautiful outside right now. Shalom at its best. I have really been thinking about Easter lately. How important it was. What an impact it has on my life. How true the it is (not the part about a creepy pink bunny laying eggs). I am so humbled by the actions of my God. This is a joyous season...HE IS RISEN!

Living a Beautiful Life!

So moved by my Heavenly Father. He is showing me His greatness through people, His miraculous healing, His constant forgiveness, His perfect shalom. He is teaching me to allow Him to fill me completely, and show others His unending love. He has recently put examples in my life to show me how to be filled and share. This is a time of learning and listening, of seeing God's will, and opening my heart to new things. Changing my major (English Yay!), setting up new schedules, teaching, and finishing up my first year of college. He is showing me these new paths, and I am crazy excited with where He is taking me.

Crazy excited for summer too.

I have realized what silly addictions I have. I always find myself doing things or making things, instead of accomplishing the important things. I really should be working on homework, practicing for band, or studying. Haha, with such lovely things to do why would I want to do any of those silly things.  Lately my addiction has been these sweet felt baby shoes. I plan on donating them to a local pregnancy crisis center.
Aren't they the cutest!
Tumblr is something else that seems to suck up sooooo much time.
I just love looking at all the lovely things there.
Maybe I should make some new addictions like homework.

Hanging out inside during a rainy day. I should definitely be catching up on homework, or getting things ready for the next week, but for now I'm not going to. I just want to absorb this peaceful moment. The quiet sound of rain, the smell of my coffee, the feel of my worn journal. I want to capture this moment and save it, to take out whenever I need it. To always have this peaceful feeling, and be able to expericence it whenever. I can't keep it though, in a few minutes, I am going to have to go to Walmart to grocery shop, and walk through the rain to get to the store. I have to clean my kitchen, make dinner and clean it again. I need to start the homework due for this next week. I have to prepare something for Bible study this week. There is so much to be done, but for now I am living in this peaceful moment, with the anticipation that no matter how much has to be done, I will have a moment like this again.

Sweet Sundays

I love peaceful Sundays that are full of meaning. Curled up in a church seat, and just simply listening. Hearing deep passages that really impact your spirit. Worshiping with people who are moved by the lyrics in the songs. I truly love peaceful Sundays. A new song was introduced in our service. I had heard it before but hearing so many voices cry out with such faith and passion was a beautiful moment, that brought me to tears. Letting the emotions come I noticed others in the room completely overcome in the moment. It was an amazing "God-moment" that was able to bring so many separate people together.
I wish we did more of this.

~10 Beautiful Gifts~
1. church music - the kind that really stirs your soul
2. christmas lights in dark rooms - twinkling their happy story
3. old books of poems - like holding history
4. sisters - the friends that are so close they are your family
5. alarm clocks - I would never be on time for class without it
6. notecards - the perfect thing to slip into peoples books for sweet surprise messages
7. rainbows -  to show beautiful things come after the storm
8. little hands - holding tight to show childlike faith and trust
9. God-things - little moments of "wow my God is awesome"
10. quite times - for pure thinking and a time of Shalom

A crazy weekend that ended in one of the best God-moments. 

I was so stressed out with the beginning of this semester and other things that were going on, I felt I couldn't take it anymore.  I was at a breaking point, and let myself break.  It's at these moments that God is so close.  He calms my spirit and gives me His perfect peace.  I began to see how God is never failing, and is my steady rock.

Sitting in church with an uplifted heart, I was shown again how amazing my Father is.  A side passage that was mentioned during the service and just gave me the hope I needed. 
James 1:4
Perseverence must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

My God is giving me that perseverence so that I can be complete, and exactly what He wants me to be, not lacking anything.

Here's my heart Lord, take and seal it.  Seal it for Thy courts above.

Why is it when I need to stay up I can't but when I want to sleep I have terrible cases of insomnia! 

Listening to Adele,
                    Reading Ecclesiastes,
                                          Actually writing.

I always wish I could live in a different time or a different place, but really I am happy in these beautiful "Shalom" like moments.
(even when I am really tired, and can't sleep)
time for chai tea <3
