My favorite time of the year...

I am so very thankful for this time of year beginning. The air outside is so crisp and everything is so beautiful. Oh, thank you Lord for Autumn. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you Lord, for the beautiful crisp weather outside.
Thank you Lord, for my brothers and sisters in Christ and their constant encouragement.
Thank you Lord, for allowing me to be a member of the body of Christ.
Thank you Lord, for your comfort.
Thank you Lord, for never turning your back on me, even when I am an utter brat.
Thank you Lord, for picking me up every single time I fall.
Thank you Lord, for teaching me to call upon Your name, all day - every day. Having intimate talks with you throughout my day fill me with the kind of joy only You provide.

I love you.

Different and Efficient

You're pouring Your love all over me and it's dripping off the tops and sides and bottoms and middles of trees, full of splendid little busy bees about doing Your purpose... how can this be? That You've let my heart to see and experience and take in and now to sing... sing, sing, sing about your love to everybody, anybody, or the somebody that's considered a nobody but they are special to thee and for that I thank thee that these things have been shown to me.

Lord I praise You because You are different and efficient. And You've tweaked my spirit just enough so that I can taste and see that you truly are good. Like a fresh picked pineapple for the first time in my mouth or the warmth of Your sun on the back of my not warm neck on a not warm day.

I praise Your name today and tomorrow and forever...

So much to say...

hello dear friends.

it's been far too long.

so much has happened. so much growth, so many sweet memories made this summer and so much change brought on by a new school year. my senior year.

i have so much to share -- but for now, i will just say:
1) my summer spent in Boston was beautiful. the surroundings, the people, the experience... all so wonderful.
2) this Fall has brought on big changes. i live in a beautiful house with three beautiful girls (beautiful from the inside and out). it is a tremendous blessing to be immersed in a community of girls who are just so in love with the Lord and want nothing more but to glorify Him in all they do. what an inspiration, what a blessing.
3) our home church movement, SOMA (greek for Body, as in we are body of Christ, being the Church) has strong direction and so much in store. thank you Jesus.

i have many more stories and photos to share, just be patient with me. :)

my beautiful friend, Steph, who I met in Boston. she changed my life and my heart forever :) i miss her every day.

my wonderful campers from the Boston Ballet who taught me so much this summer and filled me with so much joy. they are all so stunning and talented and i miss them terribly.

Boston Public Library. So lovely. I love this city.

my housemates and i. i am BLESSED.
