Sometimes when I feel like I've 
displeased people,
been worthless,
I just crave to hear how much the Lord loves me.
When I read Song of Solomon I read part of it as a love letter from the LORD to me. 
When we are in our darkest times, the Lord constantly desires to lead us. 

Song of Solomon 2:10-13
10My beloved speaks and says to me:
"Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
   and come away,
11for behold, the winter is past;
   the rain is over and gone.
12The flowers appear on the earth,
   the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
   is heard in our land.
13The fig tree ripens its figs,
   and the vines are in blossom;
   they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
   and come away.

God, thank you for your love and grace that I will never, ever understand. 


“Do the things you know, and you shall learn the truth you need to know.”

Louisa May Alcott


I do not want to be an obnoxious blogger, but my day. . . seriously?

1. I cried in class. I never, ever cry. I cried in class. . . haha.
2. I fell walking up the stairs.
3. I got locked out of my room and had to pay $5 to get in.
4. Can't even touch on how unfit I am for my job.
5. Spanish quiz, what?
6. Yep, it's still winter.


I just need to say it. . .
I hate that some friendships fade and end.
The hardest thing EVER for me to understand is that some people are brought in our lives for a season. I have a hard time saying goodbye. Even though I am confident that the Lord is so good and knows what He is doing in my life.

On another note--went to a birthday party last night.
Pretty positive that this person's house is actually a meth lab.
Can I write that on my blog?
Hopefully I don't get questioned.
I mean I'm not making meth and for all I know they aren't either.
Okay I'm stopping.



I was so thankful for today! 
A beautiful break from 
single digit temperatures and a perfect
reason for a konza trip!!!>>>>> BEAUTY.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
-Mark Twain

i am a full supporter of this quote.


Slowly Changing. . .

i am about to be sooo trusting with whoever is reading this!

This was written in my journal,
i pray this over my own life. A prayer of perseverance, 
joy, brokenness and surrender. 

Within the matter of less than a week many things happened
that have caused me to lean into the Lord's arms.
And it has been beautiful. And hard.

I seriously have prayed once before that the Lord
would break me so that I would rely, and both
times He has surprised me with how literal it has been.

I have claimed a verse for this year and I love it. . .
Psalm 52:9
For what you have one I will always praise you in the presence
of your people. 
And I will hope in your name for your name is good.
