Welcome to my blog

So I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned.
In awe of the one who gave it all.

Sang this at youth group last night. I want to give my all to the one who gave it all for me. 

It’s been a long while

The last year or so has been a time of growth. Of joy, even in the midst of pain. Of thankfulness for the Lord’s grace in my life. And the mercy He has in sustaining me. I’ve gotten worse at writing to share. So often my thoughts are left to myself. Hidden away in a book tucked in my bag. Prayers lifted up that the Lord only hears or sees. But I’d like to share that joy that I have. To share how the Lord has been growing me. Even if no one reads these thoughts that pass me by so quickly. So bear with me as I find the words. As I get back into writing and sharing. Because it’s been a long while. But I’d like to come back.

I miss having a summer. California just isn’t the same because it’s summer here all the time. The only thing that is ever changing is the produce that’s in season, and though it’s tasty, it’s not enough for me…

LOVE ET. AL: Date a girl who travels. Date a girl who may never have an apartment...

love-etal:

Date a girl who travels…
Because she’ll share all of this with you. 
And what’s more, she’ll want to re-create all of this with you. 
She’ll let you have your fill of maps, of secrets… of her world. 
She’ll help you with your adventure. And she won’t be scared to give you her everything- because she has left and shed so much of herself along the way. 
Ready to be exposed.
Preparing for the day that her Symposium ‘half’ wants to peel back all of her layers.
To be naked. 
To be bare.
To be real 
with you and for you. 
She’ll give you her world- a world for you, and only you, to explore. 
Date a girl who travels because there’s NOTHING like a girl who travels. 

I want to show him the world. The world I’ve seen. And see more of it together. 

Sooooo my camera, Fred, isn’t totally out of commission, but he is reverse blind (LCD screen broken.) So I have been trying my HARDEST to 1) Save for a whole new camera or 2) Win one! So this is another attempt at winning a 5D Mark III (and this post gets me 25 bonus entries!). If you want to enter (I really would be happy if a friend won this like last year, even though I want to), you can go through my referral link here (and help me get more entries). Here’s to praying I get a shot (literally).  
And big thanks to the SnapKnot wedding photography directory for offering this great camera giveaway!
