Psalm 40

 I waited patiently for the LORD; 
       he turned to me and heard my cry.
 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
       out of the mud and mire;
       he set my feet on a rock
       and gave me a firm place to stand.
 He put a new song in my mouth,
       a hymn of praise to our God.
       Many will see and fear
       and put their trust in the LORD.
 Blessed is the man
       who makes the LORD his trust,
       who does not look to the proud,
       to those who turn aside to false gods.
 Many, O LORD my God,
       are the wonders you have done.
       The things you planned for us
       no one can recount to you;
       were I to speak and tell of them,
       they would be too many to declare.
 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
       but my ears you have pierced ;
       burnt offerings and sin offerings
       you did not require.
 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come—
       it is written about me in the scroll.
 I desire to do your will, O my God;
       your law is within my heart."

Psalm 40: 1-8

I have been feeling weak. Useless in the Kingdom of God. Not deserving of grace... feeling inadequate to be surrounded by the body of Christ. Sinful and broken.. And then the Lord wraps his comfort around me, whispers to me that He loves me wholeheartedly, unconditionally and passionately. He leads me to His word, which comforts my unsettled mind, mends my broken heart and speaks to my soul. 

He makes me feel whole again. He gives me strength. He uses me even when I feel weak. I know He leads me lovingly. I pray that he rips away my fear and insecurities. Today, and every day I am thankful for grace... thankful for the life I have been given, and what Christ has done for me... for us all.

Lord -- be with me in all my words, actions and thoughts. I just want to You, Father.

Break Your Heart

Corezone is a ceramic heart-shaped vessel that you can place your thoughts, feelings and emotions into. Write them down on pieces of paper and put them inside. You must then physically break your own heart to free them.

I just really like this idea. Emptying your heart out, only to be filled again with hopes and dreams. Praise the Lord.

The Bicyclette

How lovely is this blog -- The Bicyclette? Loving these images of lovely ladies on their bicycles. Makes me want to take a bike-ride in this crisp weather. 


The fifth season of Dexter is breaking my heart. I just love Dexter. I really do. It's not often that a show can keep you on the edge of your seat like Dexter does... and oh boy do I get stressed out.You should be watching this show. It's dark, but oh so good. Who knew I'd end up rooting for a serial killer...

 I'm loving these posters created by a fan, you can buy them here

Farah & Sameer

Meet Farah and Sameer. They are wonderful, and sweet... and getting married in November! Farah was my resident at Bruce Hall at UNT. She is brilliant -- no, seriously. She is 19 years old and she has her master's... AND she's in Physician Assistant's school. Yep. Since she was a former resident of mine I can't help but feel like a proud momma. I am so flattered that she asked me to capture her engagement photos -- and her wedding this November!
