safe in His arms.

Micah 7:8 says, "Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when i sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me."

this is right down the road from my house. my home church and community.

pray. love. hope. faith.
its crazy how things happen in a split second, but joy comes in the morning.

traveled to louisiana this weekend with my mom. we had a great time. it was very needed time. i learned that no matter what i go through, i am perfect in His eyes. as many times as i mess up and think i'm not good enough, He is enough, all i need, and He loves me. forever.
while we were driving back, we recieved so many calls and texts from people telling what all had happened in the county and making sure we were okay. i believe He had us in louisiana for a bigger reason then we had thought. all that happened on saturday not only made us worry about things, but made us realize that it was going to be okay. we didnt need to worry, He had it under control.
why can't we just truely depend and trust in Him? we say we do, and we do but sometimes we question His power over things.
He is the God of this universe. period.

today was a beautiful day. it was a perfect day in Him.
went church at fbc at 8 then went to agape church at 10 to hear my sweet friend sing and to check it out. the worship was so great. i really enjoyed it and they sang some of my favorite songs. afterwards, had lunch with friends and then headed to waynesboro for my last jcjc choir concert. it was bittersweet. we sang very well, a great way to end my career as a concert choir member. never will i forget all the memories and friendships i've made through the 3 years.

so this is my child that i am sponsoring now. i keep saying "i have a kid", i feel like he is or at least a little bit, he is. i think he is so adorable and i am so excited about him. He is 4 years old and has the cutest name ever, Edwin. words can't express how excited i am about this.

i hope you all have the best week. let your light shine. :)
enjoy the days you have, you never know when it may be your last.
you will be safe in His arms. forever.

thank you for being a friend.

this blog is just to thank you all for being here.
thank you for everything you do for me. i dont deserve any of it but i am very grateful for your friendship. the people who have truely been there for me in these past few months, you have no idea how much it has meant to me. you have been such a blessing in my life and i love you forever.
"There are "friends" who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother." ~Proverbs 18:24
"Do to others as you would like them to do to you." Luke 6:31

today, was a different day. many mixed feelings going on inside my body.
i had class this morning and then went to see some people i hadn't seen in so long. i miss them so much. it put joy in my heart to see there pretty faces but also a little sadness.
next, i took myself to Lee's to buy myself a cookie and to see my sweet friend.
i was in one of those moods, where i didn't want to be alone. i wanted to be around friends for a little bit. i really needed that.
while i was there, God opened my eyes to a blessing. it made me really grateful for what i do have. i take things for granted so often, unconsciously.
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." ~Phil. 4:19

i hope you have a great night and great week.
thank you for being a friend. you mean more to me than you know.

whatever you think.

so recently i've been listening to some wedding songs for a friend of mine. trying to make a list for her to choose from. i've came across a few, but i love this one "i have and always will" by dave barnes. its a beautiful song. it makes me tear up everytime i hear it. its such a sweet, simple song yet at the same time deep too. i love it. gives me hope.

i've been busy this week, but one great thing came out of it. forgiveness. no matter how much you mess up, say someting in the wrong way to someone, or do things and regret them, there is always forgiveness at the end of the day, waiting for you.

"But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sings, too." Mark 13:25

"Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must fogive others." Colossians 3:13

In your darkest hours, will I love you still? I have and I always will.-dave barnes
even though this can be a wedding song, it can also be God saying this. He will always love us. i'll never be alone because of Him.

i'm excited about my momma coming tomorrow! she's the bestest!
hope you all have the best weekend everrrr! :)))

these are paintings i'm doing right now. i have 2 more to go, it'll all be one painting when you put them together. i'm excited about it.

i just felt like painting something random this afternoon. i think i like it okay...

last night i watched glee. i dont really watch it for the drama part, just the music. so today that is what i have been listening to. glee 1 and 2 soundtracks. :) they make me happy.

i'm so grateful for all this pretty weather this week. it is randomly raining at the moment, though. hope your day is going great and your week continues to, as well.

victory in His strength.

so this blog may possibly be a long one. beware, ha.

this week was a full one. we had spring fever, along with my birthday week, and just school. period.
wednesday night, i was able to sing praise to Him and see one of best friends in this world. i was so excited i was able to see her. i had invited her to come because i knew she would love the song i would sing, "Healer" by Kari Jobe. she said i did the song "beautifully" and i was super happy she enjoyed it. she is a very special friend to me. i do not know what my life would be like without her sweet spirit.

thursday, "onedaywithoutshoes" the day had come about and i knew what i was going to do. i went to class without any shoes on my feet. i did not mind going barefoot, i am a country girl and it comes out every now and then. despite that fact, a day without shoes did make break me. it made me really think of how it would be without shoes everyday. in rain, not knowing where or what you may step on, and not having any comfort for your feet, i can't imagine. i am so grateful that i have shoes, more than alot of ppl do, come to think of it. i'll never think of going barefoot in the same way.
that night some of my old friends got together for my birthday. it was fun and i have missed a lot of those friends desperately. i realized that my time at jones is soon coming to an end. i have spent 3 years of my life here, it seems like yesterday that i started as a freshy and didnt know anybody. it is kinda bittersweet at times. although i am excited about the future, so i will not be sad. i will not.

friday , i had school. boo. had a test i didn't have to study for after all because it was open notes and book. yeah i know, it was ahmazing. special olympics were that morning, i helped with the Bocce sport. it is very eye-opening to be in the atmoshpere of it all. that afternoon i took myself to lee's to see my sweet friend and had some lunch or a snack you could say. pb&j sandwich and it was delish. met some cool people and saw some faces i hadn't seen in a while.
that night went to see "the last song", and i cried like a little baby. it is a precious movie and if you haven't seen it, go and if you dont wanna go alone, i'll be gladly to see it again. k thanks.

saturday, took a random road trip to orange beach. oh how i needed to see the beach. it was absolutely beautiful and i did not want to leave. one day i will live close enough to the beach, that i can go anytime i please. mark my words. i never get tired of the sound of waves crashing ashore.

today is sunday. i woke up late, but got to church on time. oh the joys of being a college student, where you learn how to get ready in a heart-beat ha. church was wonderful, as always. i love hearing bro. frankie preach, God always speaks through him. went to eat lunch in the cafe and i saw a surprise. it was an old friend, that i miss so much these days. she always puts a smile on my face when i see her.
and yes, i know there are more stories of my week then pictures this time. ha.

there is victory in His strength. if it had not been for the Lord, i would be nothing. His strength is mine. Psalm 18:1 "I love you, Lord. You are my strength."
its been a great day for me and i hope has been for you, also.

pretty woman

Touch me now, I close my eyes
And dream away...

It must have been love, but it's over now
It must have been good, but I lost it somehow
It must have been love, but it's over now
From the moment we touched till the time had run out

So I watched pretty woman tonight with my momma.
It was fun. made me miss the times when I was able to just watch movies at home, instead of going out all the time.
Momma also made some pretty amazing brownies.

ill be 22 on sunday! Ah!
Happy Easter! Remember why we celebrate this weekend.
