pieces of my puzzle.

things are starting to come together each day for me. i've been going to a new church, meeting new people, hanging out with my little cousins and family down here, getting close to finally getting a job, and may be even moving into a new place in the middle of august! God has been blessing me so much in just the last few days. all the pieces to my puzzle are starting to come together. and i couldnt be more excited about it. but what can i say, it takes alot to get me down anyways! ha :)
didnt think this move was gonna be to grand after only being here for a week. i started missing people from jones and my parents, along with my house. nothing seemed to be going right. i wanted to just go home and give up.
soon after getting upset and two tears rolled out of my eyes, God turned everything around. and it has been such a great few days.

last night i read Matthew 14:22-33, when Jesus walks on water. how Peter had so little faith in Jesus when the wind became too strong. it reminded me that even if something isn't going right in my day, that it shouldnt make me want to give up. it should make me want to keep going and have stronger faith in Jesus, that he'll make everything better. no matter what goes on in my life, even though He already knows whats going on, He still wants to hear about it. He wants me to talk to Him and to ask for things. when we run to Jesus, He's already running to meet us.

the pictures are just from this week. how beautiful the skies have been and one with showing off my cute headband. :)

and if our God is for us
then who could ever stop us
and if our God is with us
then what could stand against

i hope you all have the best weekend everrr!

growing up.

my 3 precious cousins.
they brighten my day everytime i am with them. which will be almost everyday this summer, because i am pretty much living with them. not only am i growing up, but i get to watch them grow up too.

this is Kaylan Mae.

this is Sarah Anne. :) in the middle.

and this is eric.:)

last night i was laying in bed with eric and sarah anne and they told me what they wanted to be when they grow up.
Eric said he wanted to be one of these: a major league baseball player, book writer, or lay carpet like his daddy.
Sarah Anne said she wanted to be one of these: a teacher, cheerleader, or dancer.

i thought this would be cute to share. they are some pretty amazing kids.
whatever they become i know they will be great at it.
i really like it so far here. cant wait for whats in store. :)

have a great night and week!
i'm going to get better at blogging. hopefully. :)

sorry to hear.

Paramore is probably one of my favorites bands ever. Their lyrics have such strong meaning to them. One I will see them in concert. Its on my things to do list. I was looking through my itunes earlier and I had forgotten about this song "hello hello" by paramore. As I listened to it, it made me like it even more. Here are some of the lyrics in the song.

Hello Hello
Is anyone home?
Hello Hello
Just pick up the phone.

I opened up my life to you
I told you everything I knew
You listened so closely too
You listened so close
When love was just a way out
But you're going deaf now
Yeah, you turned your head around

Hello Hello
Is anyone home?
Hello Hello
Just pick up the phone
You'll be sorry to hear
I'm doing fine now
Sorry to hear
You're without me now

You blew up the world I built for us
Destroyed our secret universe
Threw out the trust I put in you
Making me feel like I'd been used

And now I'm reminded
That I was just blinded

I'm doing fine
You'll be alright
Maybe you'll think of me tonight (hello...)
You're doing fine
And I'll be alright
Just give me time

Hello Hello
Is anyone home?
Hello Hello
Just pick up the phone
I don't wanna hear
You're doing fine now
Don't wanna hear
I'm without out you now

I'm without you now
Without you now.

This weekend I will sing in one of my closest friends wedding. I'm super excited about it. They are the sweetest couple, everrr! love them and wish them the best! :)))
I'll be glad to see all my friends as well. Nothing will bring me down.

have a fun, great weekend!

in the dark.

this week i am doing vbs at my home church. today was about God cares for us. And how He will never leave us no matter what! it was truly a blessing to me, today.
i have had some encouragement today from some friends. it has also been a blessing. no matter what this life brings us, we Christians, should be so focused on Him that our hearts will make it through the pain. we have a bigger God who loves us and takes care of us.
proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take." thanks to my precious friends, family, and my amazing God who never leaves me.

Ive been writing lately:

he never cared a thing for me. I thought he did. he said he did. he lied. he used me. he said he didn't. he did though. For whatever reason. he told me what I wanted to hear. I believed him. I was dumb to believe a child. I don't hate him. I just don't care for him. I wish I could make him feel the pain I have felt. he is a magician. And I was an innocent girl that he had under his spell. I don't know how I could let this happen, but something was telling me to take a chance. I did, and now it has made me a better christian and person. I learn from mistakes I make. And this was one of the biggest one I've made. I'll never forget what I thought he was, but I will forget about the person he is. I am better off and HE has an amazing future planned for me.

"If gods the game that your playing, Well we must get more acquainted, because it has to be so lonely to be the only one that's holy. its just my humble opinion but it's one that I believe in. You don't deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you." Playing God by paramore.

i was in the dark, then HE showed me the light. :)

i apologize ahead of time if this bothers anyone. these are just my thoughts and my opinions. my blog, i will choose to write what i think.

i love you all, my followers. :)
have a wonderful week! God is Amazing.
