Momentary Ecstasy

That moment of intense ecstasy when you find out that, instead of only being able to see him for a couple hours this weekend at a barbecue, your boyfriend is coming up to visit tonight too. My day was just made :)

Maybe They're On To Us ~ Chorus ~ NEEDTOBREATHE

You're not the only one
To sleep through the firing squad
To scream through the night at God
Wake in a pouring sweat you hear the sound
Can't even turn around
Hand reaching from the ground
Who's gonna save us
Who's gonna save us now

Inception Again

In the mood for an intense movie
Always intense, no matter how many times you watch it
The key is the wedding ring, but in the end even that doesn't help
Leaves you questioning

Victoria Day Weekend

Brandon over
Long walk with together
Celebrate mothers day with MY mother 
Walk with family
Lay in the grass
Sunday: church here, church there
Young Peoples
Attempt to sleep in... Sound and light...
Hang out
Drive to Chingacousy Park
Sitting in the shade
Run through the kiddie splash pad
More volleyball
Ultimate Frisbee
Rain and rushed goodbyes
An excellent long weekend
I miss you Brandon

Knight and Day

Finally watched a movie on Monday movie night again... The last few weeks have involved talking instead of movies... And tonight was not Monday night, either... 
We watched Knight and Day. An action/comedy/romance. Hilarious. A movie that you cannot take seriously or it will be lame. Totally want to watch it again!

Emotional Shipwreck + Time With God

I have been noticing that whenever I have an emotional shipwreck I have not been spending as much time with my Lord as I ought. So God reminds me by giving me tests that with Him I should be able to pass.. Tests that I fail, because I have not been paying attention to Him. Tests that, in order to survive, I need to flee back into His loving, protecting arms. And He takes my upside-down disaster heap of emotions and sends someone to comfort me, and sets my emotions back in place. 
Resolve: to stop using God like a vending machine.

When I Needed A Hug

Crying so hard your head hurts. And you're told over texting that you need a hug (between the lines: 'I wish I was there so I could give you a hug'). And right then someone else gives it to you, not knowing what the text said. 
Love my sister and brothers. And my boyfriend is so good to me.


You are so good for me.

On My Mind

I can honestly say that you've been on my mind since I woke up...

Getting up early to take a shower before my sister, because we both need one before work, and there's no way she would get up early so that I could sleep in a little.

The Flower Shop

Mother's Day help
Aching feet
But I love working
I could have a new job every two or three months, doing everything from farming to mowing lawns to arranging flowers, just give me some variety and a good days' work.

Painting A Door

White mess
Green grass and the sunshine
Slight breeze
Stained fingers
White door

Lord, What E'er the Future is Bringing, verse 3

Don't let me decide, my Father
What the future ought to bring
I would make mistakes or rather,
I would ruin everything
As a child, Lord wilt Thou lead me?
Wilt Thou guide me by Thy hand?
I would lose the way, please lead me
Lead me to the promised land.

The Difference of a Word

'What is the difference between curiosity and zealous interest?'

Summer and Country Music

Driving through the countryside In the summer = windows down, country music up :)


Let's hold hands, because mine are cold and feeble and yours are warm and strong.


Every day is a blessing from God. Live life to it's fullest potential. The less you are distracted while working the more time you will have to enjoy yourself later. Keep remembering this when you are letting yourself get distracted.
