A first time for everything...

Now I've gone and done it ~ I've officially dipped my toe into the waters of the big ol' blogging world. Now to await the results!

  But I am like a green olive tree
   in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
   forever and ever.
Psalm 52:8

Umm... yeah.

Remember how the world was supposed to end yesterday?
Well, I'm still here. And you must be, too, since you're taking the time to read this. So much for that.

ahahaha. ever thought about that?
Or maybe this is the explanation. Whatever the case may be, I personally find all the doomsday talk a little ridiculous. Even if you did know when it was going to happen (and I guarantee you never will), what effect would that have on anything? The day of the Lord will come "like a thief in the night" (2 Peter 3:10), and when it does, are you prepared to step into eternity?
That should be the question on your mind.

Hello Summer

{Hello summer}
{hello gloriously empty calendar}
{hello cracking the window at night for a cool breeze}
{hello coloring with crayons just 'cause I can}
{hello sleeping in 'til ten}
{hello subduing the urge to burn my philosophy textbook and selling it to Amazon instead}
{hello capris and flip flops}
{hello reading the the books *I* want to read}
{hello finally having the time to organize my room}
{hello pushing my baby brother in the swing}
{hello (hopefully) twice as many hours at work}
{hello sleepovers and chick flicks}
{hello staying up t'il 2 AM because I want to, not because I have a major paper due tomorrow}
{helloooo, summah!}

One Heartbeat at a Time - Steven Curtis Chapman

 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Proverbs 31:30-31
Love ya, Mom. Happy Mother's Day!

To the Spring 2011 semester

You've got your short sad life left
That's what I'm counting on
I'll let you get right to it
Now I only want you gone...

Go make some new disaster
That's what I'm counting on
You're someone else's problem
Now I only want you gone

Now I only want you gone

Now I only want



Love, Me.
