Hold hands firmly, hearts gently.– my Dove chocolate wrapper
Day 24 – Something that makes you cry Not living up to expectations. The feeling of inadequacy.
You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words...– Nicholas Sparks (via jestupinan)
Day 23 – Something that makes you feel better The assurance that God’s view of me never changes. His love only grows more and more each day. How unreal.
Day 22 – Something that upsets you Watching people fall into bad decisions and not being able to do anything to change their minds.
I’m not as ready as I thought I was.
Day 21 – Another moment Today from 5:24-5:35 PM. God knows how to make my day better.
Day 19 – Something you regret Everything I can think of that I regret has taught me to a lesson not do to that thing in the future. Things like wrong steps in relationships, lying, vices…they have all pointed me back to my Savior when I realize how dumb I am and how I can’t do it on my own.
Day 18 – Your favorite birthday (I skipped day 17 because it’s impossible to answer) My 16th. I went to a Taylor Swift concert and Rachel Patla and I were thrown the best surprise party ever! It included Disneyland, a penthouse suite, and rooftop dancing. See here (woo old blog!).
I could write a million songs about the way you say my name I could live a lifetime with you and then do it all again And like I can’t force the sun to rise or hasten summer’s start, Neither should I rush my way into your heart.
Day 16 – Your first kiss It was the wrong time and the wrong place. We were standing backstage during Drama 2, sophomore year for me, senior year for him. Neither of us wanted to be there, but our grade depended on it. “Well…we should practice before the show. At least once or twice.” “Yeah, you’re right. Want to run through it right now?” (in my mind I’m saying NO NO NO PLEASE NO) “Yeah,...
Day 15 – Your dreams - To be the editor of a magazine - To have puppies up the heezy - To act in a movie - To find the man I’m going to be with for the rest of my life That’s basically all I can think of. I don’t have that many concrete desires for my future, because there is no use in planning it out when it’s not up to me.
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” He is in control. He...
Day 14 – What you wore today There is no way to approach this topic without sounding into myself… I wore a floral dress (I am a little too obsessed with flowered things), a cream cardigan, black tights with little polka dots, and tan lace up boots. Done & done.
Day 13 – This week Let’s start with the best event so far: getting promoted! I got moved up to server at Farrell’s. Yes, yes, yes. Now I can stop complaining and start lugging around trays of beverages to delightful customers. Monday, I rode on a bus for 8 hours and then hung out with Stubot. Tuesday, I practiced for Theater of the Absurd. I play a maid who screams out a poem about...
Day 12 – What’s in your bag Always: planner, pens, highlighters, giant chapstick, wallet, brush, water bottle, whatever book I’m reading. Right now: all of the above plus: Daniel Fast rules. Winter Formal papers. Earrings.
I’m willing for us to fail, as long as the crash leaves skid marks in the...– Josh Pease
Day 11 – Your siblings Favorite topic. I love them so much. Shannon: Beautiful, free-spirited, and effervescent. She has such a servant’s heart. She takes risks and is always stretching herself in all areas of life. Joy radiates from her- when I’m with her I feel uplifted and energized. We get the same results on personality tests. It’s semi-creepy. Ryan: Full of strength,...
Day 10 – What you wore today Winter X t-shirt over a long sleeve shirt. Jeggs. Red sneaks. SoooOo00o fashionable!
Going on a snowboarding trip/church retreat for the next 4 days. I will def be hittin’ up the bunny slopes. See yaaa!
Day 09 – Your beliefs Ahh, this could be so long and complicated, but if you couldn’t tell yet I prefer short and simple. Jesus died & rose for you. Love Him, love others. If you love Him, show it. That is what he commands and it isn’t an option. The road is narrow. Peace out.
I pray for the eyes of Jesus. Because my eyes distort the truth of who a person really is- a child of God. no questions asked. He loves them just as much as He loves me. I am no better.
Day 08 – A moment The moment in Laguna Beach when I realized that time with these people was better than a lifetime of hangouts with what used to be.
Day 07 – Your best friend See here.
Day 06 – Your day Edited my teacher’s home videos during aiding Talked about Solution in Civics ! Zoned out in English…and Spanish Lunch rehearsal for Theater of the Absurd Work Made myself a delicious meal And now, watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska while I should be reading Heart of Darkness. Hooray!
Day 05 – Your definition of love I don’t have a creative, perfectly-worded, cute definition that includes never-ending butterflies and comfortable silences with a boy. Because I haven’t experienced that yet, so I don’t feel justified in defining it. Here’s what I know: God is love.
Day 04 – What you ate today Honeydew. Dried fruit & nuts. Whole wheat spaghetti & salad. More dried fruit & nuts. Goooo Daniel Fast!
Day 03 – Your parents Are who I owe my relationship with God to. Are who shaped me into who I am. Are the best examples of a Godly marriage and Godly parenting I know.
Day 02 – Your first love The one whose love for me remains constant, no matter what I do. The one who sacrificed it all to save me. The one who breathed life into me and made the rest of the world pale in comparison. The beautiful one.
i less than three these things.
Day 01 – Introduce yourself with pictures and words Day 02 – Your first love Day 03 – Your parents Day 04 – What you ate today Day 05 – Your definition of love Day 06 – Your day Day 07 – Your best friend Day 08 – A moment Day 09 – Your beliefs Day 10 – What you wore today Day 11 – Your siblings Day 12 – What’s in your bag Day 13 – This week Day 14 – What you wore today Day 15 – Your...
you know that feeling when everything is just right? when God has placed everything in the perfect spot? i feel like that is going to end right when my alarm clock goes off tomorrow. back to reality.
your circumstances should not define your happiness. the fact that the creator of the universe loves you unconditionally should be reason enough to have never ending joy.
for once, i was not yelling and screaming at midnight when the new year began. i was not banging on a pan in the middle of the road. i spent midnight praying with friends that God would consume me and do His will through me, that He would allow reckless abandonment of myself and fill me with His spirit to bring a piece of His beautiful kingdom to earth. i prayed that i wouldn’t be afraid...
